what can you do with an x2pro that you cant do with the lite? i understand the basics, but for example if i want to make another system JUST to run linux. would there be any advantage to getting a pro chip?

If you just want to run linux and don't want to flash the mod chip then a lite will be ok. If you think you will ever want to flash the chip (with a new cromwell for example), then I'd go for a pro, because it comes with a programmer in case things go wrong.

With the pro you need to flash the bios yourself. If that's a pain for you the X-ecuter 2 lite is pre-flashed. I hope this helps.

Not sure I got your que, but on another note, the price diff on the Pro vs Lite is not that much, so why not splurge?

i did just order the pro. heres my only beef with it. has that external adapter...looks ugly and could be damaged. was just now thinking of a way to mod it just access the port. and now im trying to figure out the switch situation and how id make that work seeing how they would be inside the box under thier current configuration.

Maybe I'm not understanding what you're trying to say, but if you get the X2 pro, you don't need to add a switch. It's on the external adapter.

yes i understand that, however its kind of big. i was thinking of installing it so i can still access the port. yet have to beable to access the switched which would requir a slight mod seeings how if i installed the adapter inside the case the stock switched would no longer be accessible

I was thinking of that, but since people normally don't access the rear of my xbox, I don't mind too much. It would be kind of cool if someone customer fit a black cover over it though.
