Which Mod Chip?
Posted 25 September 2008 - 02:00 AM
I'm also going to get a modchip (my xbox is currently (evox) softmodded).
Is there a particular mod chip you'd reccomend of I should avoid? (I am in australia if that matters)
My xbox will ONLY ever be used for xbmc, I've no intention or desire to use it for games (no xbox live)
I am happy to solder chips in place if that's the best option.
I have another (1.8 in (for quietness and lower heat build up)) hard drive ready to go into the box, but it doesn't support locking (already got it ready with xboxhdm)

And I'd second the TSOP flash recommendation - I did my 1.1 Xbox about three weeks ago, and (apart from an error on my part which a little concentration would have easily avoided!!) it was far easier than a chip install, and free!

I read loads of tutorials (paranoid!), and used bits from all of them, but I couldn't find a recent one that matched what I was trying to do and was easy to use.....
However, once I got the basic steps sorted, it was actually very easy.
- softmod your xbox (loads of tutorials on that! Use Krayzie or Kingroach)
- solder the two bridges (pictures here, but ignore the flashing method described)
- create a 1Mb bios file from your chosen bios (I used x2bm)
- flash the bios. I used the net flashing utility in Resctoox first time round, but have subsequently also used the Evox dash method (install Evox dash as an application, put the bios in /EvolutionX/BIOS, run Evox, select "Flash BIOS" from the menu, pick your BIOS from the list) and both work fine.
Hope this helps.
