Hey guys.
Basically this is what ive done so far, the console is a corona V1 so does not require a post fix, so ive read the nand successfully with 2 dumps, i have then created the ecc then wrote the ecc. So then i programed my ace v3 with a corona ace file. I have soldered it to all the points needed but it glitches but wont boot. It flashes green a couple times then stops then continues. Ive doubled check to make sure nothing is shorting and i hope you guys can trust me that my soldering is good. I've tried multiple timing files with no success. Any help with be greatly appreciated.!

NOTE: I didn't shorten any of the wires at all.. Is this needed?

The first boot can take a while. For a Corona v1, make sure that you have a hdd connected to the motherboard and a hdmi or av cord attached. Some corona models will not boot if these 2 things are not attached

I forgot to mention that I also tried to rewrite the retail nand. I just selected it, pressed retail and pressed write nand. After that I disconnected the 5v wire from the chip and booted the console only to get a red dot.

The buttons on the top are only for when creating a nand. To write the stock nand you have the select nanddump1.bin and then select write nand.

If you could also take pictures (make sure everything is in focus) of the install points we can help you a lot better.

Here are a few examples from when I redid my Corona (Note: I used a TX CR4 so this is a muffin install, this method uses different points than the Ace v3 install)

Just had a look and right under the x bolt holding the cpu in there is a square of small resistors and 2 were only just hanging on and 2 were missing. it was obvious they were smashed off somehow. So i ended up bridging them but now when i turn the console on i get a red dot on the power light...

To repair those you would have to replace them. Under the x-clamp are the components for the gpu and cpu. If those are broken the console will reddot.

Would you know roughly how much itd cost to get 5 resistors replaced under the gpu at a shop, just roughly.. Want to know if its even worth worrying about anymore.

You said they look as though they were smashed off, if so are the solder pads still intact or did they come away with the resistors, if you managed to find someone to do it I doubt it would be economically viable

Solder pads are Intact hence why I bridged them but the console reddots with retail and with modded nand with acev3. Before it was only a reddot with retail nand

this was actually my very first ever RGH! Xbox was a Corona V1 and absolutely loved it! such a beauty and good boot times.
i get 3-5-10sec boot times and sometimes instant. i also use a ace v3 so
