Well I finally went about modding today. After reading and chatting on the forums for about a month. Everything went well. I ordered from Divineo.com and got my chip today, a week later. Some of you saw my first topic "Spider Chip 1.1" and several people were argueing on it.
The install went just as I would have hoped. I have a 1.6 xbox and a spider chip 1.1. Before even opening the xbox I made disk images of the "Slayers" auto installer and HackDaBox's Flash Disk. I went to the local hardware store and bought the two screwdrivers I needed. Opened the box and cleared everything out and was now ready to install the chip. I opened the small metal case and removed the chip. Gently laid it onto the LPC like I had read to do. I screwed it in and wired it as the directions said to and tested it. The xbox fragged and at this point I started to worry. It would boot then wait a second turn off, and boot again three times. I then went back and took all the wires out and completely removed the chip from the box and started over using one smaller washer. I screwed it in and test booted. Worked great. I then got to the cromwell bios screen and chose boot from CD and inserted HackDaBox's 1.6 flash cd and went about flashing it. When it was finished I rebooted and started the Slayers Installation, that worked perfect too. I'm now completely set up with my mod box and very satisfied. The Spiderchip is a good chip to those who have patients, can read, and refuse to take negative advice from others. It's nice to know you can prove others wrong on your first install. I just want to thank everybody for the good feedback, tips, and help.
I only have one question. When I reformatted I lost my Xbox Live stuff. I made a complete backup of my harddrive before reformatting so I do have the file somewhere. Could someone tell me what folder to drag onto my xbox hdd to get my live stuff back?
