Those are great news indeed, the problem is that I don't have skills now, my skills are better than in 2006. But the mess is there, some pads have been lifted up and it will be harder to find alternative points. Soldering to the O letter of Xeno should be pretty easy.megalomaniac wrote:the Xeno or Atmega8 (Xeno clone) can be upgraded/downgraded (or initial programming for Atmega) using the various xenoflash.dol's included in the source..
In order to put the microcontroller in program(write) mode, RESET pin (1) must have constant contact with GND during the write process.
The printed letters "XENO" are in contact with RESET therefore connecting any of those letters with GND will put the chip in program mode. The letters are quite big and make for easy soldering of a wire lead. Also GND can found anywhere on the GC, such as the metal cage around the optical drive which also makes for easy soldering.
You mean the metal cage with holes that attaches to the GameCube disc drive can be used as a ground connection as well?
Oh, and any list of fixes between the different XenoGC versions?
