I have an old school xbox with Akira 2 Chip and Executor 2 bios (3935 i think). recently I dug it out of the basement and decided to fix it.. It had error code 16.
I took the chip out and had a look at the xbox and put the chip back in.. Now i dont get any video at all when i turn it on.
I think i must have fried it somehow. It boots up when i flick the switch back to MS and get error code 12(dashboard). Im not worried about error code 12.
I know the xbox is fine. I want to reflash the chip. I tried looking for a EEPROM writer but not much luck.
Im handy with a soldering iron. Anyone help me out?
I dont want to send it off to get it repaired mainly because I want to fix it myself.
PS - I tried FTP'ing into the xbox but it doesnt work - dont think the networks setup - gets an IP but nothing else.
I havent tried the hotswap thing yet as I dont think the HD is faulty.. more like the bios on the Akira 2 chip.
