I'm about to buy a mod chip tonight and I was thinking on getting the xecuter 2.3b lite plus (i think that's what it's called), but I have a question first. Some websites have the chip pre-flashed with Linux. Some don't have it pre flashed at all. I was wondering whether or not I would need a programmer in order to flash one of these chips to evo-x, or whether I could just flash it with a disc... how do you do it? I don't want to install the chip and find out that I still can't flash...

Sorry if this has been asked a million times before, but search is disaled right now...

I believe that all X2 chips come preflashed with the Linux Cromwell Flash BIOS. So all you will need is a BIOS CD/DVD to flash it after it is installed.

Welcome to Xbox-Scene. Good Luck! smile.gif

Hey man welcome,

Like chefelf said, you may flash your chip with a cd. Simply make the bios cd of your choice, read tut. Then when you have chip installed for the first time, it will ask for a update cd, you pop in your bios and a flashing it will go. Any more questions fell free to ask. smile.gif

where would be a good place to buy a xecuter 2.3b lite plus? System Mods and Divineo are both sold out, and other sites could be shifty (I remember hearing something about "System-modZ.com" not delivering)...

Sorry for that last post there, I was a bit lazy... I went to the shop ratings section f this website and I saw some good reviews for GameShopUSA, plus there was a $5.00 off coupon, so I bought from there. Thanks for all your help guys! biggrin.gif
