Default Cheapmod installation problem.

sponsored links

Hi, guys, I followed the instructions on but in regards to the 16 pin header plug, but I just couldn't desolder the last hole on the lpc port so I did the optional method in the instructions I only desoldered 9 of the holes in the port and pulled the appropriate pins from the header as you see here.


and I soldered the link wire on the two points on the topside of the motherboard without flipping the board according to this diagram.


I put everything back into place and after I turned the system on I get our friendly FRAG (Flashing Red and Green light) error. I tried hours of soldering and desoldering to see if evertthing was soldered correctly. What I want to know is if everything I just explained is soldered on correctly, shouldn't this thing work? Or, like I said in an eariler post, the chip came with a preflashed Xecuter 2 4976.02. I have a version 1.0 xbox. is this the problem? If so, is it somehow possible to flash the bios to something else more appropriate even though it's not working in the system?

Thanks guys!

If you have that many questions, it might be better to have someone who knows what they are doing install it for you.

The RS link is broken. Just buy wire wrap from RS. Same thing as 30ga kynar.

Just pull the extra header pin out. When you line it up with the LPC holes, remove the solder, you will see where there is no hole, just remove that particular pin with some needle nose pliers.

Thanks for the reply, I've soldered and done this before wiith the PS2, but I was never missing parts with the previous mods that I've installed, I'm just making sure before I broke that pin off. =)
