Default Matrix Installation Probs - v1.1

sponsored links

Hi there,

I've tried quite a few different bioses and they all seem to do the same thing. I get them installed ok (solid green light in mode 2). However, it seems as though the xbox is still reading the bios from the xbox rather than the chip. It seems to function exactly as before, giving an error on a dvdr, but loading an original fine.

Any ideas? I'm pulling my hair out on this one!

Hi m8.

Having a solid green light in mode 2 isn't an indication of it being installed correctly.

On the 1.1, when in mode 1 the LED flashes bright green once then starts flashing red. That one green flash is the indicator that it is connected properly but it still doesn't mean it is connect to the d0 point! (G-Spot)

What I did was cover up all the other points around the d0 point with tape which means the only electrical connection the chip can make is with the G spot.

I also had to fill the holes in the LPC header with solder to ensure connections are made there as well.

One more thing, some boards have a clear coating of varnish applied with stops a decent connection being made so it's advisable to scratch this away very lightly and carefully.

As for the BIOS, as long as it verified correctly then there shouldn't really be a problem there. I had the problems you mentioned to start with and tried a couple of different BIOS files before finding out about everything I mentioned above.

Hope this helps.
