i did the defrosting trick on my xp1600 agoia0212 and after doing a double with a microscope to see if the pit on the l1 bridge where all fill and then to check if the dot where all well connected i installed my cpu back and now i have no boot at all i did my connection a second time and still no go
i use crazy glue to fill the pit and a defroster repair kit to connect the dot
If you have a green processor you will need to scrape the bridges with a razor before trying to unlock. There is a clear coating on those processors that interferes with unlocking.

Hope that helps ;)
Id try to make sure you have removede the glue as well, it could be slightly conductive... Or maybe a teeny bit of defogger got in a slight gap, and shorted it... :eek:

try it in another computer if you can
Get some 600grit sandpaper , and sand it down a bit. I did this 2 days ago for my buddies 1600+ AGOIA K . It unlocked nicely after I sanded it down. Using a razor to scrape it off is good , but sand paper is easier and your guarenteed to get the clear coat off.
