i wanted to buy a xenium spice but they are out of stock till gold hits the shelves.
so i went for the spidergx which had the same functions an was just as easy to install,
at least thats what they told.
installing the chip in my 1.6 went smootly, flashed it with the 5035 bios and installed dashboard.
but as so many it freezed when running a second xbe.
so i bought a x3 CE, had it soldered in by a friend and it works without problems.
the external switch installed INSIDE the case (only used for selecting banks and writeprotect which im not going to need often, i hope) so the only visible change is a nice orange led
then i tried to install the same spidergx in a 1.0, didnt even boot kept fragging.
even after solderen it in by the same friend it didn't boot.
And the store wont take it back because ive cut one of the pins on the spiderwirepcb.
yesterday i ordered a x2.6CE (x3ce out of stock) and bought a small soldering iron with a small tip.
now im experimenting on some old network cards, attaching wires at random points
so spidergx is a NO from me, although the box in which came is handy for storing screws :!
any tips what to do with the spider? ritual burning maybe !

You actually brough up a good point.. I was gonna say about the SpiderGX to anybody who's just bought one.. you might want to hook it up without cutting off the legs you don't need at first... just try it out while making sure they're not touching each other. This will be easier of course if you're putting the SpiderGX into a 1.6, since you technically only need to eliminate one leg...

I have also had trouble with my spider gx in both the v1.6a and v1.0. I ordered a Xenium Gold for the 1.6 and a
Duo X2 for the v1.0 hopefully all goes well for these.
What do you have to do to get modchip.com to give you your money back?
