I looked but didn't see any damaged pins connecting the A and B boards. I also took the multi apart and used some 99% IPA to clean the pins on the multi. I did solder a backplane connector to the B board. Could a bad solder joint cause the garbled graphics?Bad connection between A and B boards could definitely be an issue, check for bent or damaged pins
Yeah, they key writing cables aren't long enough to reach the CN2 connection on the rev 4 board. Will definitely need longer cables, if you have any extra, that would be awesome.That’s how it is with decrypted ROMs. When you install the key writing wire and encrypted ROMs it will restart the system
Let me know if you want me to send you some DuPont wires to connect up your board?
Glad that you got it working! Enjoy!It's fixed!
I put my Phoenixed MSH roms back on the board, and still a pink screen. Then I read about shorting caps around the battery - so I grabbed a safety pin, and held it on the posts of the CCX, CC1, and EXC5 close to where the battery was for about twenty seconds each. *POOF*, MSH started right up. Swapped out the multi, *BOOM*, multi started just fine! I have to ask though, why did / does this happen, and why does it cause the board not to boot?
As for the cable - would this work?
Thanks to you both, appreciate your work for the community!
