It is ace v5 chip
The Ace chip is not a Team-Xecuter product and thus support is not offered on this platform. Doubly so since the Ace V5 even has a newer (more convoluted) install method.

Just ensure you're selecting RGH 2 in JRunner when creating your freebuild image and whatever other settings that may be required (winbond patch for Corona V5/V6 slim E series boards?) other than that, can't help you with that particular chip.

hi there.when I checked the WINBOND it booted to dashboard so it helped.thanks .however when I desoldered JR PROGRAMMER it does not boot any more . the chips LED not blinking anymore.so not shure what I did there
Ive tried dumping retail nand and desoldered 3.3 and gnd points.still no boot. here is a pic16383

You're install looks like a mess, and can see your GND wire ain't connected to the acev5 board

Desolder all cables, clean up the board, make sure console can boot to org dash, trim wires and resolder using flux
We also need photo og the buttom of the board

Ive desoldered ground and 3.3v points and dumped retail nand to check if it boots to retail but no luck there.i will desolder everything and clean up the board.but right now i'm going away for a few weeks.so will post the news. thanks for your help

Looks to me like there's bridges around C1 and C2, but in general it's clear to see you haven't used any flux, I suggest you invest in some flux and shorten the length of exposed wires. Also maybe use a smaller tip so you don't hit points you don't mean to, and be cautious of where you're pointing the soldering iron, it isn't just the tip that gets hot, the entire metal body will get hot enough to melt plastic.

You probably should've just taken this to a professional installer which would have cost you less than buying a JR Programmer, glitch chip, postfix adapter and other tools. If you want to learn how to solder, start with old junk boards and remove/replace caps. Don't practice on something you intend on seeing working, chances are you'll short something out, blow a fuse, or fry some component, which is difficult to diagnose without the correct tools or know-how, and leads to lots more work.

I'd also venture to say your soldering iron is too hot.
