    i am wanting to buy a mod chip for my xbox but want something that is still going to allow me to play online and is pretty easy to install. Any suggestions will be appreciated :confused:

    Thanks

    Depends on your xbox versions but buying the Xenium S.P.I.C.E from www.divineo.co.uk is a great buy, has tons of features, easy to install and fully compatable with XBL.

    I used a Xenium ICE and found it very easy to install. There's some nice PDF files with instructions from the web. Providing you take your time they were very good.

    My friends used Xecuter 3's and they were easy enough too (as long as you don't want to use Hard drive and network LEDs because they require soldering).

    if you PM me your serial number and manufacture date I can tell you with a decent amount of certainty. This site will tell you if your xbox is an old version, but if its a newer model its slightly harder to tell.

    Forgot to say www.xbox-scene.com has an excellent version checker, but it normally requires that you take your xbox apart. Which you may not want to do untill your chip turns up.

    i got a solderless xecuter 2.6 for £30 from www.kanection.co.uk. These are good chips and easy to install. They are very helpful if you get stuck installing

    If you odn't mind soldering I'd get a duo x2 modchip- relatively straight forward to install and cheap but reliable- which is good considering that for all the fancy multi-bios features other chips have, most users won't ever use the additional bioses!

    It's also very easy to disable the chip to play xbox live (just switch on using the big eject button- hey presto!).
