Hey guys. Took back my v1.6 box today with the MFG date of 2004-04-12, and got a new one which I think is v1.4..Just wanna make sure.

Here is the info: Can you guys tell me what version it is?

MFG Date: 2004-03-02
Serial No: 6048395 41005
Product ID: 361 6048395 41005

K: 1.00.5101.01
D: 1.00 5659.03

I just wanna make sure it can be TSOP flashed...I won't be able to open it up to makle sure until tomorrow.

It can be TSOP flashed. Chances are it's a 1.4, but open it up and find out for sure by using the detailed guides.

go there and find out if not open it up and see if one of the big chips near the fan behind the dvd is not an xcalibur.

Why would a modchip be better? Is the only reason because you can switch it off and play XBOX live? I would think if you are not into XB Live...than TSOP is just easier and cheaper.

What advantages, besides XB live, is their to modchip over TSOP?

if u have a newer 4th gen chip (Xenium, SmartXX, X3 (soon to be out)) you have an OS to let you accomplish different tasks

I don't play XBLive so I flashed my TSOP, [and am flashing his once I get it in th email] and I am very satisfied. I don't think the average user needs a modchip unless they want XBLive.

you can add a switch for 1.0/1.1 tsops so you can use xbox live.
I am using a modchip, but i am intrigued by a TSOP. Seems very very easy and much more reliable.
just my 2 cents
