Soooooooo I started to attempt the 128mb ram mod myself today. I was using a mix of soldering iron and hot air but after painstakingly getting the first chip lined up perfectly, then soldered on, TWICE and then both times it ending up ever so slightly out of line.... I BOTTLED IT, removed the chip, cleaned up and put away all the equipment. I clearly don't have the patience or a steady enough hand to do this mod :D 

I am now looking for anyone in the UK who can do this mod for me. I will happily pay for the service. 

Its a 1.4 console. So no stacking needed. 

Anyone out there who can be my saviour??? :)

If you want a good deal but some leg work I’m looking for some cheap crystal case parts sent to USA without the guts. I’ll pay for the cost of course. If you’re interested send your board with it, I’ll ram for free and you cover the $20-$25 to ship it back.

Exactly what case parts are you looking for? Is it a basically a crystal shell that you need?

Looking to get a couple of them. 
full crystal shells, no mechanical parts needed.

You should still be able to send him a message. I doubt he's confined to just that channel

Red overlord (Toine on FB group) is active on the Xbox scene discord also. He’s not in the UK but is in Europe. Talented guy who’s more than capable.

Hi nikeymikey, I am in the UK (north west) and can easily do this for you, but I'm off on hols this friday for two weeks. So if you can wait until I come back then fire me a PM and we can sort sommet out for ya. Will only need the board nothing else.

That sounds great. I have had a couple other offers but so far you are the first from actually in the UK 👍🏻👍🏻

Enjoy your hols and I may very likely be in touch 😁

My ebay feedback.

No probs. Used to be main seller of openxeniums on ebay for years and ogx360 too.

Thanks, yeah looking forward to it tomorrow - off on the A380 monster top level :)

Forgot to add, I always hand solder, no hot air used at all for long term reliability. Same with the xeniums etc.

EBay feedback will do for me 👍🏻👍🏻 Pm me once you are back from hols and ready to work again lol

Hello! There's a guy called James, based near Bristol, which can install the extra ram chips for you. Prices are listed below.

He's helped me in the past with performing a tsop on my xbox and doing other bits. I've been very pleased, so can highly recommend him. I've asked him install those ram chips on my xbox when I send in my console in a few weeks. Can report back in the quality of the mod, but am sure it'll be spot on.
