Im a complete newbie, regarding modchips. But i have decided to buy an X-ecutor chip. But there are several different designs to choose from, so im just a little confused. but i know what i want it to do...

1. it should contain a bios! ( or is it easy to flash ur own?)
2. Easy installation. ( I would prefer no wires )
3. No need to ewah remove it ( complete feature set )


BTW

I have the old X-Box

Thanx alot cool.gif

I hope you have a 1.0 xbox!

1. It does contain a bios (well, if it's an executor 1.0 or 1.1)

2. The 1.1 had some improvements to make it easier to solder, but I found wires were better than just laying it on the board and soldering thru the holes with 1.0. I'd guess the 1.1 "improvements" may actually make it harder to use wires.

3. Use the switch method. Use the alternative points under the motherboard, they are much easier.

What about the no solder version with pogo pins?

Does it come with a bios? u think it would be any good?


Sorry for all the questions, but i just want to be absolutely sure that it is the right solution for me biggrin.gif

well what you are looking for is done by the existing Xodus/MatriX chip which is available

1. it should contain a bios! ( or is it easy to flash ur own?) YES
2. Easy installation. ( I would prefer no wires ) YES
3. No need to ewah remove it ( complete feature set ) YES

It is also no solder, no wires , two minute installation and flash upgradable from the Xbox (dont have to take it)

Works on v1 and v1.1 (v2) xbox
All bios feautres work (use evox 2.5)

Is that what you are looking for?

Xodus-chip.com has manuals and pics and videos

Give me one good reason, why you don't want a matrix/xodus

The no solder version isn't available yet, when it's available I'm sure it will be pretty good. I believe it will not come with a bios - check the team-xecutor page for more info.

As for more software on the box, no you don't need any - you should be able to boot from backups on DVD-R or CDRW (if you can squeeze them on). However, putting the evolutionx dashboard on the hdd will allow you to run things from the hdd itself, much easier.
