Just Got a XEnium Chip What Are My Options

Recommended Posts

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 ?

I'm a newb here. I chipped and setup my sons old xbox a LONG time ago. did quite a few back in the day.

Now i completely forget how i did the software. I'm a HW guy. 

I have 3 xenium ICE chips and a couple other oddballs and 10 xboxes in vairous states.

My sons box quit on him and he asked me to fix it and get a spare up and running. 

I"m gonna need some hand holding :)

      i bought some broken xbox's. one of them says it freezes after playing for a while. i booted it up and the date was 04/13/44. i changed the date and unplugged it for a while. i then plugged it back in and it had the 04/13/44 again. i have never heard of that being the xbox's default date and i'm guessing it has something to do with the problems that it is having. what the heck would cause one to act like that? it's a version 1.6.

      I have a chip modded xbox that when powered up will go to the MS dash board. If you hold the power button down a few seconds it will activate the chip and will boot-up, turning the XBOX logo blue and if there is a game in the DVD drive it will load the game. If there is no game in the drive then it will go to the MS dash board.
      How do I get the Xbox to load the xbmc dash board when the mod chip is activated? I have tried Auto Installer Deluxe v 4.45 to install the dash boards from the disc to the E: retail hard drive but none have worked, when I re-start the xbox with mod chip activated it will go to the MS dash board.
      I have tried to use the Hexen 2018 installation disc, but the xbox  will not read the disc.
      Please could someone help me to set up the dash board so that when the mod chip is activated it will boot to xbmc dash board? If you can help, please explain in simple terms because I am not good at these things, a total novice. Thank You.
