    I have a friend who wants to get his Xbox modded. He lives in Richmond, can anyone recommend a place he can get it done ?

    Unfortunately its a bit more complicated than that. He bought the xbox off another friend, its already been modded but cant currently be used on Live. He wants to get the chip replaced so it can be used on Live.

    Its got a HD upgrade and he got it for a decent price so its worth him spending another £50 getting the chip replaced with one that can be used on Live, just dont know anywhere down there to recommend him to take it.

    Tottenham Court road maybe :confused:

    Will a change of mod-chip allow the xbox back on live? I thought you had to get a new serial number(or something like that) to get a banned xbox back on live

    Its not been banned. Its never been used oon Live. It it was it would be banned as the chip cant currently be activated.

    Hence he wants a new chip fitting that can be. Come on someone must know a decent walk in mod place in London :confused:

    This guy is the best.

    He will visit you if within a reasonable distance, or like me you can send the console to him. He keeps you informed all the way through his work (in my case via daily emails), will load all latest software, and even follows up with courtesy emails after to see if everything ok. Highly recommended.
