Thanks guys for your help!

I will try re-doing it tonight (sigh)

backup2k1 (Hi)

you say -

'make sure that the board inside the xbox is pushed down'

- Out of interest what difference does this make? - I was trying the whole thing outside of the Xbox case, so as to make sure it all worked before fitting and screwing it back together?

Does the metal chassis inside the Xbox 'ground' some parts in some way, if so where does it need to be grounded.

I ask because I was hoping to put it in side my PC case for the sake of tidyness.

I made sure (about 20 times) that all AV leads etc. were plugged in properly

You also say -

'dont forget to set the bios time up too for the box' - I'm not sure what you mean by this? - Do you mean just set the day and date on the dashboard of the Xbos or is there something else I have missed?

Thank you all for your help.

I will let you know how it goes tonight. Hopefully I won;t be up until 6am again like last time LOL!

all you really need to do is look at your diagrams and check your points. i hope you put different colored wires on because this is where it comes in handy. just give each spot a little push, one by one until you either find, a loose connection or a crossed wire. make sure you have no solder bridging another spot and definately check points 20 and 21. these two spots have giving me a little trouble because there not presoldered pads but sections on the board that require a little more heating for the solder to flow. your xbox isnt broken, just unusable at the moment.

Midnight is here and I have managed to de-solder everything to start again.


And now, several pads came off the motherboard.

I must have been mad to think that I could do this LOL! (sob)

I'm gonna see if the people I bought it from will chip it for m. I heard that a few missing pads is not too much of a problem?

Deary me - So many hours wasted!

Nevermind, thanks for all your help guys - It was well appreciated.

Cheers and good luck to all those who try it themselves !!

I just installed my beta enigmah and I am having the exact same problem. My question is would it be possible to cut just one or two wires to disable the chip and see if my Xbox is still working properly. Thanks
