    Default JTAG console doing weird things, any advice how to resolve

    Hey Guys

    Ive been scratching my head last few days as a few issues have arose with my box.
    JTAG box has:

    Update Blocker Installed to Motherboard
    Freeboot Loaded Dash version 9199

    I have had it for 3-4 months and it gets little use. I did have there 3 red lights error a couple of weeks ago and bought a xecuter kit (from neo of course ) and fitted it. This did not fix, but then I let it cook for a while (cpu overheat method as read online) and it has resolved.

    So whats my probs:

    1) I bought lips (for drunken nights in) and the mic will not sync to the console, no matter what I tried. With my old unbanned (with modded firmware) console works fine, but no joy with the jtag.

    2) 250gb drive is almost full, and the last 3-4 games I have installed (iso to god) all seem to be stalling/freezing after a few short minuites of use. Old games still work fine.

    3) When console was down, i took the hard drive off and put it on my old box to play a game. Since putting back on my jtag box my profile is coming up as corrupt. Is it screwed? It appears only way to fix is to go online and recover gamer tag - if only i new my password i would give this a shot with the old box, but i suspect dangorous as console could get banned whilst doing so.

    4) I did put the hard drive back on the old console, copy the gamer tag to a usb stick, then tried to copy back on my jtag unit, but here lies another problem - USB stick not recognised, the console shows that i have inserted memory and starts scanning then gives up and only shows the MS hard drive attached.

    This makes me think that buying an external usb drive for more games is going to be a waste of time.

    5) lasly, its becoming a little intermittent when switching on, and a few power cycles ago I got a single red light in the bottom left corner. When console rebooted it has gone back to factory standard settings and i had to go through it all again.

    Any thoughts, would be most welcome!

    what motherboard has it got, to sync the controller/mic you need to be on the m$ dash not fsd.

    The corner lamp indicates either a dry joint on the jtag or a possibly corrupt image.

    Run your wife a nice hot bath, light some candles & pour some wine. Then you've at least 40 mins on the xbox plus a clean wife.

    Experts... x is an unknown quantity and spurt is a fast drip.

    Default

    I believe it's a falcon. The console boots into the alternate dash (i did not know if there is a way to boot into ms dash) and has no problem syncing controllers, only the mic.

    Are you sure your jtag wires aren't shorting on the case, or as ted says dry/loose joints?

    hold the right bumper down when booting or selecting boot to dash.

    Are you sure it's a falcon and not a Zephyr? Both have HDMI but Zephyr's are supposed to have a few problems (which can be fixed)

    As for the profile issue there's a tutorial on Se7ensins, but the site appears to be done at the moment.

    I may be wrong, I will check and also take a try at profile link.
