I want to mod my v1.6 xbox but can't solder and am scared of trying it and messing up my box

What's my best solderless option?




btw, I also have a v1.0 xbox, would it be easier to mod this one?

Soldering is easy, if your scared yourgunna mess it up, give the guide to a friend and let him solder it in for you.

Heres what you do

0 Practice on junk remotes and cordless phone



------

1. Apply flux to header pin before in lpc
2. Apply some after into lpc
-----Place on REBUILD PCB AND SOLDER POINTS
3. Put in header pin and touch with soldering iron for three seconds
4. Keeping iron on, touch with solder till solder starts spreading around, then remove iron and solder
5. Solder pins that will be used in PCB last

-------

D0/LAN/HDD wires.

1. Flux end of wires
2. Put dab of solder on
3. Place onto D0/HDD/LAN test pad and touch with soldering iron for 1-2 seconds(HDD and LAN X3 only)


-BxN
4. Tape up loose connections

I STRONGLY prefer not to solder or let any of my friends do it(I don't even think any of them can) but if it's the best method.....

The only solderless option for 1.6 is the Spiderchip (V1.0), on Jan the 10th the spiderchip (V1.1) will be released. If you are going to do a solder install do it on the 1.6 box, as on the 1.0 box the LPC holes were filled with solder making your job even harder. If your that bothered that you'll damage the box keep the 1.0 Virgin and Softmod the 1.6, as you'll not even have to open the case. wink.gif

I read a softmod guide and it said that it will not work for a 1.6 box

are there any tutorials specifically for 1.6

does softmodding still let me put things like Evox on?

Yep, the whole point of softmodding is to put things like evox on the xbox, the softmod does it automatically.

As long as your kernel version is low enough, (check it in the ms dash), this guide will be fine, this exploit is called UDE (ltools version), if you kernel version is higher then it allows you need to need to use UXE. Just read that tutorial and i'll be happy to answer any of your questions. wink.gif

I personaly would not buy one, the thing is you can spend a little more money and get a MUCH better chip,Take the Spiderchip vs the X3 for example, in the UK the spiderchip is 30 and the X3 is 40, and with the X3 you get,
Dedicated 256K Backup Rom with a new Linux based bios
2MB bios space vs 256kb on the Spiderchip
X3 Config LIVE - Very good legal Operating System on the chip, easy bios flashing ect.......
Eeprom backup
And thats just to name a few, and you can do a Pogo Pin install with minimal soldering.
