Who knows what this chip will come preflashed with? And, What size of bios will I have to reflash it with? Thanx for info.

At this point nobody knows just yet.
Mar 18 2004, 09:14 AM
Yeah, nobody knows anything about this chip....
I'm just really curious to see what kind of workaround they have to make it completely no solder on 1.5's....

of course its going to be no solder, you can make the chameleon 1 no solder on v1.5 theres a nice tut on X-S

x2.3 lite+ and xbit chips are as well.

What is the sram used for exactly? Is it going to make any drastic difference in speed or something? This is a seriouse question as i plan on buying on as soon as they come out.
May 14 2004, 01:39 PM
All features will be released when the chip start to ship.
May 14 2004, 01:50 PM
God knows when that will be, dont think ill bother then
Thanks for the outstanding customer service

The point of the sram is like "extra storage" for the xbox. This is used for in memory trainers, apps, etc.
Since trying to load a trainer into memory and load the game, well sometimes its very tight because there isnt enought space. So the memory on the chip is used to hold the application.

I'm guessing this will be a software modchip like the xenium/smartxx. that's the only reason it caught my interest. He mentioned 'final version of the OS not being done yet.' So I'm hoping for it.
Modchips with onboard Operating Systems are in now. We'll just have to wait and see if this delivers.

I'm GUESSING that there would need to be some heavy BIOS modification in order to utilize 2MB SRAM onchip for system purposes, much more than delimiting the XBE or BIOS to take advantage of 128MB. This would be something that the X-Chip (and its OS) could not do, from what I know.
So *throws hands in the air* I'd like more info, too.

Well... if the USB can do debugging and stuff... there is definatly something done.
Then it must be possible with the X-chip and OS.
And they wouldnt have done the SRAM, if it wasnt possible to use it for the intended purpose.

I wonder what the SRAM is used for too... if the USB can read it then it could certainly be used for debugging.
It won't used as extra memory for games, because it's on a different bus at a different speed - and is only 256 KB.
Since it's volatile memory, it can't save settings for the "OS".
It must be something to do with USB I/O. Particularly since SRAM is a more expensive memory suited to that task.
edit: trainers of course - it has to be something that appeals to the pirate kid masses - of course, you can do exactly the same thing with a hacked XBE. if it was on a DVD you do a no d mount (or whatever its called) in evox, or use evox trainers. i hope its not for trainers
Jun 9 2004, 05:44 AM
say it was for trainers and other memory resident stuff... why do you NOT want it for that ?
What would YOU want the memory to be used for ?

So it's coming out. Does it support the 1.6? Your website says it supports all versions of XBOX using the solderless adapter but that can't be true, because the 1.6 needs the LPC port rewired, but anyway will the chip itself work on the 1.6 upon release?
Also, how about getting the features updated on the xbox-scene modchip feature table: http://www.xbox-scene.com/modchips4_table.htm
Jun 9 2004, 11:14 AM
I have not done any testing on 1.6 so I can't personally comment on it. In theory if any other mod chips work with the 1.6 with a bios change then the X-Chip will work as well.
Since I don't have a 1.6 with me I can't comment on this as of now. This also applies to the solder-less adapters. When we have more information we will update the web site if nessary.
