Can I move my X3 + solderless adapter to another xbox?

Post by XC-3730C »

I have an Xbox 1.0 that has a bad HDD that won't boot (I never got it to the point where i could sooftmod and backup thr eeprom), so I was wondering if I could move over my X3 + solderless adapter to the xbox that won't boot over to TSOP flash it?

Here's a pic of the motherboard with the x3 + solderless adapter :

Yes you could do but you have to solder the tsop points or join them with conductive paint.

The chip wont allow you to flash the tsop as per say but you can repair the xbox then you could use an expliot to flash the tsop or install a soft mod then flash the tsop.

Done deal. Took out the x3 and solderless adapter, put it in my xbox that had a bad stock HDD, TSOP flashed it, done.

Thanks guys!
