|Hey guys. I just installed my Chameleon Chip and flashed the old Chormwell BIOS with Xecuter2 V. 4979. I have been reading that if you want to disable the Chameleon you are supposed to use V. 4976.02 The main reason I bought this chip was because I could disable it and play online, but I don't have the right version? Is there anyone to disable to chip using Version 4979? I have read that your supposed to boot the xbox by hitting the eject button and it will boot with the chip off, but I still get the XBOX Logo with the Xecuter2 logo on it and after that it proceeds to the Slayer's Evox Dahsboard I have. Also one thing I noticed when I installed my chip and was at the chromwell BIOS screen waiting while flashing my chip, it said that the BLUE LED was supposed to be flashing, but the only color that ever flashes on my chip is red. But the chip still flashed the BIOS and plays ripped games so I didn't think anything of it, but having never seen a blue light could this mean that my chip isn't working and for some reason I can't disable it to go online?|
You disable the Chameleon by HOLDING the EJECT button down at boot. If you only touch it for a second the Chameleon will still boot normally.
Additionally, this only works if you soldered the P/E wires on as well. If not, then it won't work.

2) Quick solder - This is the only install I havnt tried yet and thus all I can say about this method of install is becareful not too heat the chip or xbox board up too much. Also watch for any short circuits and make sure none of the components on the chameleon touch any other live parts of the xbox motherboard.
I just wanted to let you know about my experience with the quick solder method. I have been using the chameleon chip for two years now with the solderless adapter and it has been fine most of the time (with a little adjustment here and there). In the meantime I have been working on putting the xbox hardware in a PC case so I can fit 4 HDD's in it with a dial switch to switch between them. While I was trying to mount the mobo in the case I snapped 2 of the pins on the adapter, I thought I was screwed. So the I dusted off my soldering iron, bought a new tip (fine, smallest I could find), and some solder and proceeded to flip the chip upsidedown and solder the connnections. The process went smooth and now when I move my box I don't have to re-adjust the adapter.
In my experiences with mod chips this is the most solid way to connect this chip. I also put a dab of super glue on the chip to hold it in place while I soldered it. This method is not for the amature solderer, you need a stedy hand, a very fine tip and make sure you "wet" the tip with solder, DO NOT apply the solder to the board, let it get "sucked" to the cool contacts. And most importantly make sure the connections do not touch each other. You may also want to fill the holes with solder first. I hope this adds to any doubts you may have about this style of connection. In my opinion it is the best way.
let me know what you think
