This is not right.
I am planning on getting my xbox chipped (linux, backups, etc.) and I was looking around for places in my area that will install them. I called up a few guys and they all said that they use an EvolutionX3.6 modchip? That doesn't sound right because EvoX is a bios in my knowledge.
Can anyone tell me what that really means, because they said they would install an evoX modchip. And I tried about 5 different places, they all said the same thing.

Could they have meant they would install a modchip with EvoX 3.6 just for the new v1.1 Xboxes?? That is quite weird.

They probably flash your TSOP(onboard bios) to 3.6(v1.1), cheapest for them as they don't have to provide a modchip

scooby (heh), the guy said that the stores said they will install an Evolution 3.6 modchip. Or, possible scam?

Well there's no such thing as a "EvolutionX3.6 modchip"
they probably lead you to believe they install a mod chip and actually just flash tsop "evox 3.6 mod"
alot of modders do this, they should be up front with you about what you're getting though
it might be a home brew with evox bios?
I would ask some questions to be sure of what you are getting

Yeah, I guessed they would be either doing a homebrew modchip or flashing the onboard BIOS.
Doing that wouldn't take any soldering, so I might even try doing something like that myself.
Thanks for your help.

actually flashing the TSOP does require a little soldering, and it must be fitted temporarily with a mod to do the initial flash(it has to be able to run unsigned code) check the tutorialshttp://www.xbox-scene.com/tutorials.php
whatever you end up deciding to do, good luck with it

Well it is possible to flash to TSOP with the Matrix and without any solder if you follow my method. You have to use some silver conductive grease which is a little expensive, but I'm sure there are other things you could substitute.
Check out my flash TSOP section of my Matrix guide for more info.

They could just use a homebrew chip, flashed with evox 3.6, thats technically telling the truth.

Yup they just mean that they solder in a eprom or a flash prom with the evo 3,6 for the v1,1 or the evo 2,6 for the v1......i do it all the time...works like a charm..You can even put the excuter v2 files in the mods
make a switch and there you go.....
I also test my homebrews on my own box -------http://people.zeelandnet.nl/boarder/xbox1.jpg
