Well hello there. I've got this 1.6 which looks way cool in its Crystal case. i had it modded, and since i was cheap, i went with an Aladdin XT instead of a more recent chip. but i seem to be paying the price now. i have the most annoying time ever trying to flash the BIOS...since i haven't found one that doesn't cause my Xbox to lock up with the Aladdin in. i asked the dude who modded my Xbox, and he said that it might help if i go for the Xenium...i like the onboard OS idea. he's offering the chip for the difference in price between the Aladdin and the Xenium.
is it worth my time? my Xbox has become almost unplayable with most games because it locks up so often.
