This Chip Is The Cat's A$$...

Just wanna tell the world (no-one I work or live with really gives a shit [excepting my kids]).
Night before last: I installed a Xenium ICE, Solderless, on a 1.4 refurbed xbox. Zero problems. Backed up Retail Kernel, Backed up EEPROM, Flashed EvoxM8 from USB Flash drive (no more effing with bootable media for me! Thank you Xodus). Installed XBMC as dash & tested (surprised to see they changed the xml a bit in latest release (that was my only real trouble).
Last night: Hard drive upgrade wizard (120gigs).... Holy$sh1t Batman that was a cake walk! Even did it with my 3yr old twins running around underfoot. I never wanted to attemp a harddrive upgrade on my 1.1 box (w.matrix chip) cuz frankly, it sounded like a colossal pain in the ass. At least every tut I could find, made it sound like more hassle than it was worth. (I [wasn't] big on games, but do a LOT of media streaming).
Up Next, I'm lamenting my choice to wuss-out and stay under the lba48 barrier. So The 1.4 will temporarily replace the 1.1 in the home theater (PIMPING ALERT: XMBC looks great on the 42" Plasma), and I'll get another Xenium ICE & redo the 1.1 with it & a 250giger this time around. Behaps a clear case too. Oh, I've been bitten by the bug.
Many thanks TeamXodus. Top Notch product.
And thanks to MS for subsidizing my most beloved piece of consumer electronics (excepting my ReplayTVs).
