I have a couple of questions for the experts -

My xenium ICE chip just died. I am trying to find a replacement (v1.6 ICE or Gold). NOT looking for it on this post. I have done several mods but have always used xenium chips... so I am green when it comes to the other mods. I have been searching bunch of forum and websites and haven't been able to find much info on converting.

If I am unable to procure one I am considering converting to Xecuter 3 CE or SmartXX v3. I own all my games on my (250Gb) harddrive, I don't want to have to go through and re-burn them.

Will the games and or the file structure work with either of the conversion? Anyone that has converted from xenium to another brand give me some advice or links to documentation

Also recommendations on one chip (Xecuter vs. SmartXX) over the other? or any others?

any help would be appreciated

Yea, the bios and the files on the HDD are what determine compatibility, not the chip, it just loads the stuff

Try duox2 they're readily available.

Xenium has discontinued their line of chips. It is still possible to find some ICE chips at...


Their price is a little high, but you can't beat their service.

Digging up an old post but the question wasnt really answered and i'm in the same boat. I just bought an xbox for spares and found it has a xenium chip fitted using a socket, i plan to use this in a slimbox conversion but my only real problem with the chip and its bios is that when using the dvd dongle and controller it doesnt work properly and it skips thru the menu without being able to select anything, it only seems to work with a genuine MS S controller and nothing else. I will try and replace the bios first to see if that rectifies the problem but not sure which bios i should use, currently has Evo X and M8 dash.
