Original Xbox I know this is not stock

Postby Berzerk » Thu Dec 07, 2017 12:40 am

Picked up another original Xbox today and noticed this when I opened it up. I know this cannot be stock was wondering if this was for a Mod chip and what kind? The system works fine.

Yes that is for a modchip. The modder probably used the bottom motherboard DO point instead of the top one in order to connect to the modchip.

Bottom of the mother board. Was wondering if I could get the chip somewhere and just plug it in?

poor soldering job hard to tell exactly how bad as they didn't clean the burnt flux off the motherboard. used the bottom d0 point with that wire feeding through the LPC debug port via (thru-hole). Wire has too much insulation melted off it from too much heat for too long. But, connection probably will work. some look like cold joints, a couple have too little solder and others too much.

The Aladdin XT plus 2 is the only modchip being produced anymore.
aliexpress.com search for "XT 4032" ~$3.30 each.
