Matrix For Xbox Reviewed

The package contained one chip, programmer and small washer, be careful when opening as you may drop it.
The mod comes unflashed for legal reasons. I know this may sound very daunting for some of you to flash the mod but believe me it is incredibly easy.
To Flash the mod you simply plug a 9Volt battery into the programmer and secure the chip onto the pins of the programmer.
When you have done that you simply plug it into the back of the printer port no cables what so ever are needed. Once done that you need the Flash tool and Dll file from http://www.warmcat.c...lksop/wmilk.exe and here http://www.warmcat.com/ntiosupp.dll. Once you have these extract them into a directory with evox 2.5 available from www.<auto mod edit: illegal link>.net Eg extract all files to c:\Matrix. You must then go to the command prompt or dos prompt and enter the directory the bios and wmilk is in eg: C:\Matrix. From here you type wmilk -c -a ffc00000 -v -p evox25.bin. Then it will programme and takes a few minutes. Thats it!
After this you will be all set to go. The install is very easy to do as the manual shows. I will be installing later on after my xbox is delivered.
I would reccomend everyone should buy this one, this is a modders dream!

i'm still waiting for my chip...no news yet
If Easybuy 2000 had CLASS they would send an email to the people that still haven't received the product giving us an ETA (estimate time of arrival)
Maybe i'm too much customer oriented...

I live in Finland, so calling them isn't an option (don't want to pay one cent more for the chips).

I should mention that it did take 4 or 5 tries to successfully flash the chip in the first place (if you get sync errors while using wmilk.exe, just keep trying a few times) but once that was done, it was almost too easy to put in!
From my observation, I think it would be VERY hard not to align the pins properly, as the Matrix's circuit board is almost shaped to fit the corner of the IDE connector. I had no problems at all getting it to work and it was blinking green right away.
Perhaps tomorrow I'll be back posting about how crappy the Matrix chip is and how it befouled my Xbox, but as of yet all is well.

Does anyone know if this price is correct?

Still, I'll probably get it rather than solder.
