Availability Of Xbit Modchips
Posted 18 December 2003 - 09:30 AM
I'm keen to get an XBIT modchip kit asap, but have seen the info on the DMS site saying they are unavailable from 9 Dec until the end of the year.
Does anyone have any updates on their availability, or details on the "defective components"

I ordered my chip around Dec 8 and on Dec 9 the delay was declared. The shop I ordered my XBit at has now given me a new shipping date and it is supposed to go out on Dec 29. But I guess when you now order a chip, you won't get it before january, because they need to serve all the orders from those people that waited for quite some time now, first.
So don't expect anything to happen before January. That is my guess.
And as far as I know, the problems were not caused by dms itself but by their suppliers who delivered them the wrong cables and boards (but I must admit that the only source I know that from is the shop I ordered at. All the other sites didn't offer this piece of information).
Furthermore it is always better to go with the well known shops that have a decent reputation. Especially when it is about such kind of chips that are still more or less 'underground' ;) with many unexperienced users that you can easily rip off, because they will be afraid to sue, because they think they were involved in illegal activities or anything of that kind. So... there probably is a herd of black sheep out there ;)

You might try searching in the Buy/Sell forum as I have seen several posts where people have them and are willing to sell or trade them.
Good Luck, and Happy Holidays!
