Just confirmed 0101 is southbridge on Xbox 360 slim. The southbridge is the only
chip I reflowed. Fired up with no problems. Thanks to all those who post with
helpful infotmation.

This may seem odd, but I had a 0101 on a Zephyr that seemed to be caused by an
overheated CPU. Whoever had the console before let the console run without a
heat sync on the CPU. You could tell from the thermal paste being discolored and
a different texture. Lifted bad CPU with a Scotle IR360 Pro V1 and reattached a
new CPU. Problem solved! [Note: do your research on CPU swapping before

ok first I replaced XCLAMP. No joy. Then I stuck in USB male plug into the
ports. Xbox launched. It is the USB port. My assumption was that the inside
pins were touching causing the short. That was easy.Finally an easy fix.!!!

XBOX ELITE. rarely used before 3 ROD. Front USB PORT.

Xbox 360 Slim, PCB Corona, Red Power, code error: 0101. HELP ME :( Reballing
CPU/GPU and SB did not help :((( after 10 seconds the red light appears. : (((

Slim 360 came in occasionally throwing this error. Plugging anything into the
front or back ports froze the system. Reflowed Southbridge. Error no longer

I got 0102, reflowed ram and GPU, accidentally my xenon board was droped on the
floor so i didn know if something loosed or broken, turned on, 0101, no solder
bridged under USB ports, but inserted an USB conector a couple of times into
every USB port so I could feel if something is bridginfg inside,seemed ok, tried
