X-Bit Modchips Found In Auction Xboxs

Recommended Posts

HI Peeps,

Got hold of another batch of Xboxs from my friend who runs an auction house. 11 for £100, not bad i dont think. Anyway a couple of these have X-bit modchips in, one was missing the little control board but the other one has it.  Neither of the consoles boot to a dash, one has error 5 and the other has no power at all.  I have removed the chips to try them in another confirmed working xbox i have here as if they work then i will re use them. 

I have never had any experience with these chips before and was wondering if anyone here has? More specificly does any one know where i can get the v1.0 of the Xbit flashing software, i managed to find the v1.5 version last night but it does not want to work to flash either of the chips, i can connect but upon clicking on format or anything nothing happens. Ive tried doing this on various versions of windows from 7 back to win 2k, all had the same results. I have spent all evening last night reading up on these chips as much as possible and there is quite a bit of conflicting info out there so any help/advice with this would be very much appreciated :)

I am pretty sure the chips i have are not the v1.5 of the chip as there are no 1.5 markings as apparently there are supposed to be., so i want to try the v1.0 software to see if it makes any difference. 

 

It could just be that both chips are dead and im wasting my time, if thats the case then so be it but i cant be sure until ive tried everything. 

 

Thanks in advance :)

From what I have read in the past you need a XP or older computer to use the software.

Excellent Cheers Dave!! I have VM's setup for XP and Windows 2000 right now, if they dont work ill dig out an old pc that i have and do a quick XP install and see how i go. Will be good to bring these chips back to life.

No luck i cannot flash these chips no matter what. My only thing left to try is to knock up an old pc from the loft and install xp on it. Ive tried in vm's but no joy.

The flashing software is also pretty crap as it seems to just randomly crash at variou times.

Soft modding is like having a wank, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.

Maybe try slowing the com port speed down a heap.

      hey guys!
      not sure if this is the right sub, but well...
      recently i was clearing out my basement and stumbled across an official XBox Promotional DVD (pics attached below). If I remember correctly, these DVDs were given out to people preordering the system in europe (although I'm not sure about this)...
      Anyway, the disc is packed with cool artsy dvd-menus, game-trailers, demos and other stuff like the official "life is short, play more"-commercial (you know which one), etc.
      I have no clue if this DVD is really rare, but I think it's worth asking and this is definitely the right place to ask. so, let me know if you know anything about this dvd.
      if it's rare and requested by the peeps here, i'm going to create an iso out of it.
       
      greetings and happy modding!

      I've only just got into the gaming realm after getting my first Xbox One X for Christmas. So I was hoping for some advice... Modchips yes or no? 
      Benefits/downfalls to doing? 
      Thanks
