how can you tell What Modchip you Have.

View Post

open up your system, this is the only way to tell.

How can you tell if your Modchip supports the HDD swap feature

this is dependant on the bios, but odds are if your modchip is flashable, you already have a bios on it that supports hdd swaping. all xecuter bios's support it, as well as most evox bios's.

Go there and buy a broken board if you want to upgrade to 128 MB of RAM. Just desolder, resolder, and your good to go.

Im sure there are alot of pics posted on this forum. Just do a search for it.
And there is probably a code or even a name on the chip itself if you open up the case.

sorry cant help any further.

Well, I'd really rather keep it domestic, for the same reasons I outlined above (US Customs, all of that nonsense).

Does anyone in the US still do RAM installations?

Can I just replace my Thomson/Philips/Samsung with a Thomson/Philips/Samsung from another Xbox without a modchip?
Yes you can do it without the modchip. Just unplug the old drive and put in a new one and you are ready to go!!!

* ok so you can just swap a rom from an UNmodded xbox to another but i have replaced the board in my 1.4 cause it was my first attempt at modding and well i phucked it so i got another off ebay and wow modded it and it works, prob ios it dont read discs this was the issue with the box when i got it off ebay... i tried a thompson in this box of parts from everywhere and it dont work neither , is there a trick to this

also the box dont boot in unmodded mode since chipping

I have a xbox v1.3...

Its a dual boot... 2 HDD's in the box...

I want to know if i upgrade the memory to 128MB...
Will i still be able to use XBL with out them ditecting it(Modchip OFF, only 64MB detected)???
And then power up the modchip and use the full 128MB for other programs...

I'm thinking of getting the X3CE modchip w/ control pannel and XLCD... I currently have X-bit v1.4...
X-Disk bios (m7.67 FC) i think this is the correct name of the bios...

I would just like to let everyone know the following: Using the Mechassault "Run Linux" Softmod I had the power cord unplugged for a period of 8 hours and had an error 16 appear.

The fix, leave your xbox plugged in for a period of 5-10 minutes at the error 16 screen. Reboot and watch your dash appear (I am using the M8 Bios with Evox v3935). Boot to the M$ dash and reset your time settings. Power off and then on and you should be good to go.

Hope this helps all with softmod problems.

128MB RAM tutorials do seem to be getting a little hard come by now days..

However i do RAM upgrades, but i'm based in the UK, i have a very good price range and i am willing to do upgrades world wide, please of course do remember RAM upgrades aren't available on 1.6 boxes. If anyone is interested please do PM me. Or get me email from my website in my sig.

To the guy above, if your getting error 07 once plugging in a new DVD-ROM drive, and you don't with an old one, your DVD-ROM drive PCB is faulty. Its blocking the IDE channel so the hard drive times out giving error 07 because it can't comunicate with it. Solution: replace the DVD-ROM drive PCB or the DVD-ROM drive for a whole new one.
