Back in the good old days, I had pc, it only had 128mb of ram in it and I wanted to upgrade it to 256mb, I had an old working 128 stick kicking abou but there was only one memory slot on the motherboard. Because it was a lot cheaper to buy a stick of 128mb then one of 256mb, a friend of mine suggested modding a 128mb stick of memory by merging it with another?
I told him to F@ck off thats stupid and he told me that all I had to do is get a Ďdonorí stick of memory and de-solder the chips & piggyback them on my original stick!!!!!!!!????? I remember thinking at the time 'thatís bullshit you gump' but he showed me his pc and he had done it and it worked(no shit). I did not bother to do mine because I was sceptical of the whole thing and just got a bigger stick of memory but his worked.
I have been reading in the posts on upgrading the Xbox to 128mb by de-soldering the memory chips and replacing them with bigger chips, which got me thinking Ė would it be possible to do two things.
Piggyback the original memory with the same chips to make the process easier?
If I had a 128mb modded box(for linux, not games) would it be possible to piggyback that to give 256?
I know I have never carried out the mod only seen it & he did not go into to much detail when he described how to do it, but as I said his worked!
Donít shoot me itís just an idea, if i have missed the point pleas let me know
