It's a simple Cheapmod-based modchip.  It uses an SST49LF020 256KB (020 - 2,048 Mbit) flash with LPC-interface.

Which specific modchip it is is hard to tell, Many were created all around the globe from "Please login or register to see this link. " mounted to printed circuit boards with or without a socket, installation by wires to LPC debug port (as your's), quicksolder castellations, or pin header. 

Some could be reflashed in the Xbox while others could not be. The flash memory chip had to be removed from the socket and flashed with an external programmer then re-installed in the socket to update the BIOS.

Which kernel version is in use? (There are several versions of the Xecuter 2 BIOS.)

What replacement dashboard is running?

      Can you install a harddrive  which is unlocked and already full of xbox content and a fully Xbox ready (Dashboard installed and drive formatted) from another machine and pop it into a X3 modded console.  Will the drive need to be formatted regardless or will it see the dashboard xbe and feasibly work?
