I know its probably on the main site, but there is just too much info there so I figured I would ask here. I want to buy an xbox this christmas and I wanted to get a chip that required absolutely no soldering at all. I had a PS2 and I bought a top of the line chip (DM3) for it and tried installing it myself. Needless to say I messed my PS2. I dont want to fry a brand new xbox and I dont want to pay a ridiculous amount to have it installed.
I guess I could try to install a modchip again, and if I fry the xbox I could always try to do the swap trick at wal-mart or something. Im 18 though and am afraid that I might get caught, because i've heard that they've started cracking down on "swappers". Thats why i'd prefer a solderless chip.

For the price of a solderless chip you can probably get someone in your area to solder in and setup a chip for you. Most will install for $20-25+chip.

I live in a small rural town about 80 miles outside of atlanta, so I dont think i'd find one close by. I guess I could try atlanta if I was really desperate but what would I need to do to search for somebody who would intall one for me. I also wouldnt want them to install a modchip unless they offered a guarantee not to fry my xbox.
So is there a no-solder chip then? If so how much is it, as long as its around $50 dollars.

Sure. You can get the the Xecuter 3
or Xenium ICE (my favorite)
with solderless solutions for just under $60 (BMMods has free ground shipping too!). Both are top-of-the-line, high-quality chips made by the top two Xbox chip makers. They are stable, reliable, and idiot-proof. I recommend both without question.

Dang(dont know if you can curse), im gonna look into that Xenium chip. Its a few bucks cheaper than the other one because the other one requires a 23$ adapter I believe. anyway you mentioned the xenium was your favorite, I supposed you've installed one before? How hard was it and does it have the full functions other traditional chips have?
I know its a stupid question, but I dont know anything about the xbox, but with the Xenium do you think I could play roms and do all the other neat things I have heard about?
