    A member of this forum kindly advised me that the newest Xboxes can not be modified with the solderless chips.

    Can somebody please advise where I might be able get the Xbox I am about to buy, chipped in the North East of England.

    Thanks

    I used Mr Sparky in York - great service but probably too far for you to travel.

    I got a guy in washington to chip mine, via my brother.
    Not sure which chip he used but my xbox is only a fortnight old and it works fine
    Just upgraded the HDD myself to 120Gb and its proving ok so far.
    literally JUST finished it. not too difficult either. I will be looking to do the modchips myself aswell once I get the info off him

    Yeah just done my HD today - an absolute doddle using Slayers self install disc.

    It's amazing to think that you can get a brand new XBox, 120gb HD and pay someone to chip it all for under £200 these days! :thumbsup:

    gthom3, Alun,

    Do you have any contact details of the people who chipped you Xboxes?

    Also how much do people charge in general to carry out the modification?

    Cheers for the replies everyone.

    Jus

    One the the Xboxes you mention would have definetely been an option however I want to put my PS2 in as part exchange. I don't think they would give me much money for a ps2 and 9 games if I was not going to spend it in their shop.

    Cheers

    Are Premodded.com a decent company? It might be worth me buying an Xbox from them and just selling my PS2 on Ebay.
