I'm buying an older Xbox (presumably 1.0/1.1) from a friend next week and want a modchip for it. Originally, I had wanted to get an Xecuter 2.3 Lite[+] for it because they have two banks, which means I can juggle Cromwell and Xecuter BIOSes, and they need no soldering, only some unprotecting of the d0 point.

However, I'm wondering if I should wait for the Xecuter 3 release? I'm thinking it might take a while for a solderless version of the X3 to come out, so I'm guessing probably not.

Umm, or lite.

You really need to just compare them all together and decide for yourself. smile.gif

with an older system you can even get the 2.2 off of the b/s/t here and save yourself some money.

well, i want the newer chip because its better documented and probably is compatible with more future BIOSes

I still don't know what bios is going in bank 2 of my mod chip. Cromwell for Linux in bank 1, but from the other bank i want to run the EvolutionX dashboard and stuff...

4th gen chips are useless-

LCD?- Isnt that what i have a tv for?
4mb- Sweet, now i can put 16 256k bios's on my chip!
Restore backup- AWESOME! I dont have to leave room for a backup bios. dry.gif
OS feature- Buggy legal os...uh..cool ph34r.gif
Flash from LAN-Dont even have to use my xbox anymore? 0.25 usefull out of 10

I dont think you should wait for Team Xecuter to bloat up their bios's with useless shit. Get a 2.3b lite. And if you dont want to live through the FRAG bullshit, get a 2.2lite (if you can locate it).

Well, since it's an older one it has the Conexant video encoder, so it should't FRAG on me.
What's the latest version of the Xecuter bios to put in bank two of my chip?
