CR Rev.B in Trinity Slim won't glitch

I've had my Trinity glitched and working for almost 2 years now and have not had any problems. I took out my CoolRunner and programmed it to the Falcon XSVF for DVD key recovery since a friend fried his DVD drive trying to flash it. Finished the Falcon with RGH1 and put it back into my Slim. Solder points are all fine but the green light no longer shows up. Let me add in that I did drop a paper clip accidentally on the CoolRunner during a glitch cycle for the Falcon and the green light stayed brightly lit. Even after the Xbox was turned off the light stayed lit. Ok, so I thought it must be the XSVF corrupted since it stays lit when blank if I remember correctly. I took it out of the Falcon since I did get it boot and flashed it right back to Trinity and the light turned off. I wrote the Trinity XSVF again just to be safe and the green light blinked once like when you normally write XSVFs. Turn on the slim and no glitch cycles are happening. The green light doesn't blink at all and I checked my points and there are all fine (they have hot glue over them so they are snug and they're been like that for 2 years). I do hear the slims fans doing the usual slow down noises as if it is trying to glitch.

tl;dr
Did I kill my beloved CR? If not, did I blow a resistor or switch or something? I'm just a solder in and go kinda guy but I've read that point D is CPU_RST and is what lights up the green light. It would really suck if I really killed it :mad:.

Pictures - Note they are high resolution hence why I didn't embed directly and why do the TX forums not support the spoiler tag?

You did remember to switch the cr back to normal mode right?

I'm think dropping a clip on it probably didn't do you any good but considering that you still got the falcon to glitch after wards that the cr should still be fine unless it decided to work just one last time to be nice befor it died forever.

Pics are generally required. If you hot glued over the solder points though the. They will be next to uess.
Try to re program the cr again just for sh*ts and giggles

Yes it is on normal mode and I'll take pictures right now and upload them. Oh and it's minimal hot glue since I really didn't want the points to become loose over time and so that the two underside wires (long coiled and short uncoiled) stay away from any capacitor legs or those weird copper coiled things. Now that I think of it, tape would have sufficed :tongue:.

Was the console working before you started: Yes, this was a working console before removing the CR. Worked for 2 years never have touched wiring until yesterday.

Soldering is most definitely the issue here. You have got glue blobbed over every solder point and the CR is a mess.

Clean up every solder point as well as the CR, resolder and retry.
