I believe the motherboard in my trinity is broken, due to horrible soldering. Does anyone here sell motherboards or know of anyone who sells them? Or maybe someone or a company that can repair motherboards? Im not sure if repairing a motherboard is possible or not. i have the RDOD on my xbox slim after my friend tried to install a DemoN to it. The xbox was both of ours. Ill post pics maybe you guys will have some adviice or ideas.
Thanks in advance.

hmm that could possibly be fixable. cant tell from those pics tho....whats the secondary error code?
There was no error code. The screen on the tv was blank nothing happened. Just the RDOD. But i took the thing apart, cleaned the solder out from in between the points. Cleaned the whole board with nail polish remover and put back together. Surprisingly its working and runs normal.
Wtf happened?! Why did u let your friend try to solder a demon with clearly no experience or skill in soldering?
Because i believed him when he told me he could do it lol, and ive wanted a modded box since they came out just didnt have the time or the motivation to try get good enough to attempt those direct to board solder points. Maybe ill practice on some circuit boards for a while and give it a try.

I have a different question right now though...The xbox is working yes but considering those points are all melted and stuff, should i consider it impossible to get a new demon to work on this xbox now...?

it is still capable of having a demon installed but not by that person lol it will deff need a pro to get it going tho

Ok, I want this thing modded still. Where do I go from here guys? I've got the coolrunner rev-c, CPU reset cleaner, trinity QSB, post QSB, and the messed up demon. How do I solder a demon on the board if the points on the board are burnt off? Can the old demon be salvaged? Do we need a new demon? I heard about the alternate solder points I wonder if that's what you mean by it's still capable.

The demon chip comes with a note stating for professional installation only. U will need a lot of practice and experience before attempting it. Get a dead box to practice on first. Performing the RGH hack would be a safer move providing the RGH points are intact. Read, read, read and practice soldering before you attempt something like a Demon install. Good luck.
