Heeey guys,

I was reading into some modding work and I thought why not crab my old Xbox and see if I can play some games. When I grabbed my old Xbox I contacted everything a tried booting it up but everything from Team Xecuter is gone. There is no led panel working (I have this little panel you can click underneath your fans) and no booting into custom firmware. So I opened up the Xbox And there the Xecuter chip was sitting with One led light, of course it was the 5V led and no 3.3V led. So I took out the motherboard checked everything but everything was looking fine. So I decided to reflow all the soldering work and tried connecting pin 9 and 15 with an extra wire but still noting. Maybe anyone else knows what to do because I'm out of ideas on this one. Is it maybe an idea to just softmod it because there is no Xbox Live anymore?

Hope you guys can help!

Thanks in advance!
