    I own a crystal Xbox and I have been quoted £50 to chip it with the duox2.
    I have been told that if the Xbox breaks while he is chipping it, I will have to replace the Xbox myself.

    What are the chances of this happening and is it worth the risk?

    All advice greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    theres always a chance of it going pear shaped.
    just make sure he knows what he's doing and if possible get it done by a recommended fitter.

    You are choosing a brand of mod chip that little is known about it's use with the xbox market yet. Personally I have never heard of them but with a quick search on yahoo it appears they are more famous for PS2 mod chips.
    For £50 or less you can get one of the more popular SmartXX, Executer or Xenium chips, and provided the installer knows what they are doing there is not much that can go wrong.
    If you try the soldering yourself you can easily trash your mobo if you are not experienced in this sort of thing.

    Thanks for the advice.

    The reason I'm not going to chip the box myself is because there is no solderless chip available for my version of the Xbox. there is no way I am going to try and solder the chip.

    The installer said that the reason he is going to install this chip is because it is what he is used to and that it works weel with the 1.6.

    I did a search for this chip on Xbox-scene and it said that it was easy to install.

    If something does go wrong is there any way of recovering it?

    Thanks again.

    I had the Xbox chipped as I said and it works as exactly as I had hoped.

    I could not have asked for anything more.

    Cheers
