|I've been looking at that table, and don't understand a few things. What I'm trying to do is get a modchip that is preferably solderless. I want to be able to backup games to my harddrive, and be able to play MP3s and the sort. Price isn't a problem. I've also read about chips with pre-installed BIOS, is it very hard to install your own BIOS? I beleive all I would need to do is just burn the file onto a disk, along with a dummy file, and then just save those files to my Xbox. Or am I thinking of something else? I'm reading on the SmartXX, and it says it has multiple BIOS', does that mean there is a switch or something to switch between BIOS'? Thanks for all the help.|
pretty much any modchip will allow you to do this. it's all dependant on the bios. and yes, you will need to flash your bios. chips come pre-flashed but the bios on the chip will not allow you to boot unsigned code. it is use to flash your own bios with a disk (like you said). if you want a solderless chip, there are a few you can choose (xecuter 2.3 lite+, xenium w/ solderless adaptor, XBIT,...)

|I have not even modded an Xbox yet but will..alot of people have told me to solder it instead of the other things, forget what you call them.|
yes, this is very true. lots of ppl have problems with solderless chips (not all ppl, but quite a few). the main prob with solderless chips is that they can get loose and you have to realign it. on the other side, some have never gotten any probs.
it's mainly preference but if you feel confident in your soldering skills, you should solder. you can also have someone install the chip for you.
