I just received an old Xbox from a friend of mine and I would like to install a mod chip into it. I read up on the FAQs that were provided by Chancer and I read lordvader129's post on choosing the right mod chip.
After reading lordvader129's post I suspect that the DuoX2 is the best bet for me since I am not intimidated by a little soldering. This is the one I am thinking of getting....http://www.xbox-modchips.com/duox-chip.htm
But I am concerned about recovering from a bad BIOS flash. Is there another chip in this price range that can recover from a bad flash without using a programmer?
I've also heard that the Cromwell BIOS can be a pain. Is this correct? If so is there another chip you guys could recommend to me (keeping in mind that I don't mind using a soldering iron). Thanks.
Sorry if these are considered noobish questions. I did as much reading as I could but eventually I felt that I need to get some input from some more experienced xbox modders. Thanks again.
