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?

the original dash board loads up with the date/time. but i have just removed the clock capacitor and am cleaning the board.

how do i check the kernel version? 

MS Dashboard Settings -> System Info.  At the end of the scroller, the version of the dashboard (D:) and Kernel (K:) are displayed.

Alluding xeno fx chip, can be solder directly to board instead of using wires

Best to use wires or pin header install as the quick solder method is much harder to remove if the need ever arises.
