My roomate just sucessfully installed a spiderchip and evox on his xbox. I have a brand new xbox and want to install a chip on mine. I dont know weither to put in a spiderchip or the xenium ice chip. what does the xenium ice do that the spiderchip does not. what are the advantages to having the xenium over the solderless spiderchip? thanks

well the xenium already has an awsome bios on it and the spiderchip you have to flash it and a lot of other stuff basicly the spiderchip sucks

if you xbox is brand new it is most likely a 1.5/1.6/1.6b so that means that the spider is your only solderless option, but if you have a 1.0-1.4 definetly get the xenium.

Not true, the xenium has an OS which allows the flashing of bios files, and loads of amazingly useful things like drive formatting and backing up of your eeprom. The xenium is also software controlled, so no little swiches to break off. The spiderchip does not come close to the xenium, pay a little more and get a xenium, and piss your room mate off with a far superior chip to his.
