    Lightbulb Alternate Slim RGH Points - How To Fix When You F@*k up

    Hello Guys This Is Actually My First Thread Here, It Isnt Actually From My Discovery, Its Just Collected From Several Posts And Threads, Just Doing It For All The Guys Who Messed Up Those Points While RGH The Slim

    Anyway Here Goes:


    First Up Is The Cpu Rst And The Post Out.

    First I Would Like To Thank esbmaepo For His Contribution For Finding This

    These Are The 2 Points Im Talking About:




    If You Messed Anyone Of These You Can Use the Following Alt :

    First Of Is The Cpu Rst, Once You Mess It Up Your Xbox Will Have A Red Dot, And Wont Boot Till You Fix It.
    (Found By stanleytli. Thx For The Contribution).
    Here Is What You Should Do:


    And Solder The Other End Here:


    This Actually Helped Me After I Lost Hope That My Console Wasnt Comming Back


    Second Off: POST_OUT

    This Is The Alternative Point For it, Just Gentle Scratch The Point Apply Flux And Little Solder, Then Solder Your Wire To The CoolRunner,



    Third Point : STBY_CLK

    Once Again Thx esbmaepo For Sharing With Us.

    The Alternative is FT3N2 point ANd Located Below

    Some People May Lift The Original One or Find it Hard, This Is Much Easier, And Can Be used Even If The Original Is Intact.

    This Is The Original Point:


    And This Is The Alternative One:


    Im Sorry About The Images, They Arent Mine And Taken From Several Posts.

    This Is By No Mean Trying To Steal Other Peoples Topics, Its Just A Way To Gather All The Points In One Thread.

    Happy RGH'in Guys

    Press The Thanks Button If You Found This Topic Of Good Use

    C5R11 capacitor pad can also be used as an alternative point for CPU_RST. Easier to solder to

    lets say hypothetically, if you soldered to FT4R2(cpu rst original) and got a very weak solder joint. thats my case and now even with coolrunner disconnected i get a red dot on boot up. im thinking that FT4R2 isnt making connection to a trace anymore. would that cause the problem im having. just had a pro FAIL at fixing it. i think he overlooked this, and i would love to fix my 1 week old slim!!

    ya totally the cpu rst point if messed up will cause red dot on the slim, you can try any point of the alt in the thread they work like a charm, but you gotta remove the xclamp for that

    Re: Xbox Slim Alt Points. ( For Those Who Messed The Points)

    It is really easy to lift the CPU_RST pad under the motherboard if you are moving the blue wire around and cutting it to try and find the sweet spot. The photos are very useful in this thread.

    If you can't quite see what to do in the pics, here is a summary of the CPU_RST fix in words:

    To fix a lifted FT4R2 pad, you'll need to make a bridge wire from bottom to top of board, run it through the small hole in the motherboard next to FT4R2. This bridge needs to connect the cpu side of R4D4 on top of the board to the empty copper pad just next to the "1" of the text "C5R11" written on the bottom of the motherboard. I would suggest splicing your CPU_RST wire into the middle of this bridge wire with some solder, before you actually solder the bridge wire in place. Use some electrical tape to hold this bridge firmly in place, so you don't break it again.
