...but only after I turn it off.
When I go to play it the first time of the day (after it has been turned off for the night), it boots quite fast, in a matter of seconds, most of the time; but if I turn it off and then try to turn if back on a short time after, it won't boot at all, no matter how many times I try. I have to wait a few hours (4 hours seems to be the average of how much I have to wait) for it to boot again.

Is this pattern normal and is there anything I can do to fix this? I didn't do the hack myself, and never opened my Xbox, but I would be willing to if there is a way to fix this problem.

It's very annoying, because sometimes I turn the Xbox off and my brother wants to play afterwards, but has to wait a good amount of hours before being able to.

What exactly should I be looking for? I'm a noob at this...
It depends on how many plugins you have enabled. Also, it could be the server you are using, if you are using one.

Could be a few things. As D Dini said it could be your server you're using. It could also be your console heating up. My friends Xenon RGH would do that **** when it got hot. You can also try clearing your HDD and starting fresh as the HDD was one of my older problems of boot times because it was taking a while to load wtf ever I had on it.

The contents of the hdd shouldn't effect the boot time, only how long it takes to get to dash once booted. As pointed out above its probably soldering or the chip used.

Mine does this too, sometimes. If I turn it on, then turn it off and turn it back on right away, 2/5 times it won't boot. I usually just leave it off for like, 5 minutes and it'll be fine again. Other than that rare occurrence, the Trinity I have will boot almost instantly.

Same. I usually reboot mine 2-3 times and it works fine.

For me, I usually just turn off the power strip after I'm done on my RGH. If I don't do that, the next time it boots can be longer than usual.

If doing that does not work, you could always open it up and try to improve the soldering or perhaps shortening the length of some of the wires. I should note though, I would not recommend this as it most likely not even needed.

Although that may happen from time to time, we know that's not normal and shouldn't happen all the time right??

Well for me it always has happened. Sometimes it boots normally, other times I reboot a few times to get it to actually boot.

I would say it's normal. It doesn't boot because it doesn't glitch. If you keep rebooting, it'll glitch less in that cycle of repeated reboots.

In other words, if you can see the light emitting from the chip inside of the console, the times that it doesn't boot, the little green light doesn't flash. :tongue:

But that's what I'm saying. A good install and chip should glitch every time.

If your plugins are to large it may take longer or something is damage after i did the plugins it takes a while i think the minimum plugins you should use is three.
