dont do it it burn your xbox
So this guy is saying that this procedure does not work ?!?!?
Well being a manufacturer of a product whom you already know you have a customer base (you didn't have to seek the feedback, cause it's all right here in these very forums) for whatever reason, likes to use this method. Don't you think it would be beneficial not to say things like this and actually support it more? Maybe you do not want to supply or support it any longer but apparantly there's a demand for the wire install.Xecuter said:First of all wire install suck. we dont like them. The LPC was designed for a pin header. However what do we know

And here is a image that you may freely use... that might help some people.
(Note: i had not insulated the 5v pin yet as you all should do).
i only did a wire install on my 1.0 cause it was pre-filed with solder... but the way that diagram is for the wire install on a 1.6 xbox... sure looks EXTREMELY RISKY vs the PIN HEADER option! ... mainly speaking about numbers 5 - 7 - 8 ... as those seem REAL EASY to mess up.8itgreat said:really surprises me when i read you guys dont like wire installs lmao...thats all i do and love them....pinheaders are a pain in the ass...every wire install i have ever done is perfect to this day... did one pinheader install and weird things were happening with it (might have been a dodgy dvd rom drive) but took it out (pain in the freaking ass ) did a wire install and presto its perfect again
This image above shows an extra link in the LPC rebuild. See the fifth (5th) LPC hole from the bottom (left hand side) on that image. That LPC hole is not used in the official Xecuter images here:kah123 said:so i would use this diagram at the bottom
From what I can understand, this image shows you how to do a wire install on a 1.6 without doing the LPC rebuild on the other side. If you had done the rebuild, then you would be abel to solder direct to all the LPC points (4 points to link in Xecuter LPC rebuild directions and 4 wires on this diagram that are not connected direct to LPC).kah123 said:and this one top
Xecuter said:First of all wire install suck. we dont like them. The LPC was designed for a pin header. However what do we know ? SO if you want to use wires - make sure you follow the X3 Pin Header Tutorials to the letter - except of course the part where you have to solder a pin header - in this case you will be soldering the wires.
You will notice that there is a really long red wire on the wires adapter. This is mainly for the v1.6 - where you have to pull 5V from an alternative point. Do not connect the extra red wire supplied - this is for pin header installs only. You must tape up / insulate the 5v pin on the X2.6 PCB itself so it doesnt short anywhere.
Simply follow the solder points below - very easy to follow.
