So I just scored a xenium chip, which came free with a broken Xbox.
the seller just said it was broken, didn't even know the chip was in it.
Its a 1.1/1.2 and the board looks like new. Turns out the old owner has never flashed the chip and was running the stock dash, but had some how managed to switch the chip switch so it was half on half off, so it wouldn't boot.
well I fixed that and slapped a new drive in to take advantage of the set up tools.
so now I have two dilemmas.
1. what's the best bios to drop on this chip, it's currently in the 1.1/1.2 board.
2. Should I just take it out and put it in one of my 1.6's which are near useless without being chipped. Because it's a waste in a board that can be so easily Tsop'd That said it has one of the teamxodus solder less LPC pads. Can you remove them ?.
any ideas or feedback from you guys ?
