Thanks again for the reply manwithoutaname. The trace is the green line leading from point to alternate point? If so would i be able to scratch a little bit off next to the point and solder the Jtag QSB straight to it
hello, i need help finding an alt point for pin 6 on the J1D2 for a Zypher board. i see the pic of the Xenon, but i have nothing in the spot the pic shows it going to. im using the QSB's, and its the yellow wire
You can use alternate points with QSB, you will need to cut the wires end and solder to the motherboard directly. Just trace the point from where the QSB point makes contact and follow the trace you need.
the mobo is scratched to hell. this was a freebie from a local guy who already tried to jtag it. this is the omly point i havnt figured out.
what im looking for is the spot on the mobo to solder to. i have nothing in the spot in the pic. i cant see any trace coming off from it. so thats why im bugging you, Im sorry ;(
I got to say this tutorial saved my ass... i some how damaged the wire going to the rf board and in the process of swapping it out with a new wire for the QSB i damaged the DB1F1 (dumb move) so i used this guide to help me find alternate point!!!!
(actually Damaged it by crushing it with the drive while putting the case back together and i got the infamous E79 error!...)
I would like to say thanks to XMODS for taking the time to make this tutorial!
This goes out to everyone that has made a tutorial also! Us n00bs could not do it without you.
thanks a lot man, so if the point marked in red in the pic below is fine i do not have to do this?, also i have already installed pinheads over the top and im not exactly sure of which ports are damaged, would i be able to connect all the ports to the alternate ports even if they are not damaged?, will it effect anything?
I suggest opening a new thread if you're having issues. Personally I would remove the pinheaders completely as you could have a bridge/short somewhere underneath them. Get a pair of needle-nose pliers, and heat each pin with an iron. Gently apply pulling force on the pin you're heating and once the solder is molten, it'll easily pull out. Don't apply too much force!!!!
hi there does anybody know were i can find a pick of the j1d2 alternate points for a falcon board a friend of mine drilled the holes out instead of useing desoldering braid and has made a right mess the xbox still turns on just hope theres a way to read the nand so i can install the coolrunner board lol
i did all the alternate poins i have continuity from nandx plug throgh all the solder points, some are a little high but still connected. can something else cause the nandx to not recognize that its connected?
