Are Chinese Mod Chips Worth Buying?

Recommended Posts


I am new to the scene but would like to install a mod chip. I feel its with in my capability to do.

So my question is i can only seem to find clone Chinese Aladdin chips are they worth buy or a false economy?

I cant seem to find the real deals just what i can only imagine are clones as they sell for £4 to the Uk.

I too have seen these up on evilBay and was thinkng of just getting one for every 1.6 board I have yet to mod, as they are the only boards that I cant mod, and chips are getting hard to find.

Anyone know if they actually work on 1.6's?

Oh no I meant my usual route of an executor or such, it seems the Aladin chip are pretty much the only chips to find, unless you want to pay a heavy nostagia tax on eBay.

Anyhow bought some last night so will post here to advise how it goes etc.

What other clones other than Alladin clones are there that are readily available? Are there any clones that support LCD screens?





i can attest to the fact they work with 1.6 xboxes as i recently as in over this past weekend wired one up, i will say its best to flash a newer bios using the 2018 hexen disc so you can use a 1tb or 2tb hard drive and it will ask you if you want a f and g drive which i think is for a 2tb drive or just the f drive if like me only need a 1tb drive

      Just bought an Xbox V1.0 dirt cheap.
      It has a switch on the side, on the inside two wires are hooked up to the switch.
      One goes to ground and the other lead is hooked up somewhere on the underside of the motherboard.
      Starting to suspect the switch disables a TSOP ... is my assumption correct here?

      Are there any issues/conflicts I need to be aware of when tsoping my xbox? Ive been running a soft mod for a week or so and have a sata 500gb HDD locked with apps, games and of course a dash, XBMC4gamers.

      If so I can always put the original HDD in to tsop it that way but then am I good to go with putting the 500gb back and just straight booting? OR, do I need to reinstall everything?

      Any specific bios reccomendations? I will be using the drive as well as the HDD and on 1.4 I think. Certainly not 1.6

      Hi, I’m new to anything to do with mod chips on the original Xbox so my apologies if I sound like a complete noobie. 
      I recently purchased a Xbox of Facebook market place that has a DuoX2 (blue) mod chip installed. When the console boots is has like a green logo in the top left and Slayers 2.7 underneath the Xbox logo at the bottom of the screen (I’ll add a photo to explain what I’m talking about). Then it boots into evolutionX dashboard I believe. 
      I’ve dabbled with soft modded Xboxes before and wanted to take a crack at a mod chipped one but I’m worried I’ll brick the console if I just try and re flash bios and install a new dashboard. So long story short, is it possible to update the bios on the mod chip to someone a little more recent like EvoX M8 or something? The Xbox is 1.4 console. I opened it and cleaned the console of dust and re did the thermal paste and fixed the DVD belt prior to wanting to update the dashboard and mod chips Bios.
      any help is much appreciated.
      Kind Regards, Karl
