Are Chinese Mod Chips Worth Buying?

Recommended Posts

Hi

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.

THANKS

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?

The Aladdin chips are not hard to find at all, and yes they work with every Xbox revision.

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

      When your tring to solder to a circuit board and you damage it don't despair most stuff up's can be fixed
      If you have ripped the trace off the Xbox circuit board you need to STOP and try to relax, Walk away from the job for a minute or ten or more if neaded
       
      This is the trace that is damaged and need's to be repaired.
      This is a pic of a undamaged PCB same location.Please login or register to see this attachment.
      The red wire is what was suposed to happenPlease login or register to see this link.
       
      1st step Clean off the paint.
      Please login or register to see this link.
       
      I cheated and used a Glass fiber pen to do that but gentley scraping the track is ok you only nead to remove the paint.

      2nd Step Add flux to the board
      Please login or register to see this link.
       
      3rd Tin the trace
      Please login or register to see this link.
       
      4th Prep the wire you are going to use. I use wirewrap wire for a repair like this one as it's a single strand.
      Please login or register to see this link.
       
      5th Tin and trim the wire. I should have trimed it a bit shorter
      Please login or register to see this link.
       
      6th Lay the wire on the tinned trace and apply heat.
      Please login or register to see this link.
       
      7th Clean up the PCB
      Please login or register to see this link.
       
      Now rince and repeat for the other end.
      Once you have tested it and your happy a small dob of hot melt glue or even a dob(pin head sise) of super glue to stop the wire moving. Not on the solder joint say 5 to 10mm(1/4 inch) from the solder joint.

      Hi everyone.
      What Xecuter MOD Chip is this?  I tried browsing the stickies but couldn't find a matching picture.  The only thing I remember is that this was solderless.
      Also, is there a diagram somewhere that I can solder it into the XBOX instead? 
      Thanks in advance.

      Hello,
      I have a V 1.0 Xbox that i bought modded back in 2003. around 2004 i updated the harddrive to a larger, and i did an update with Slayers disk(v2.4?)
      I cannot seem to be able to identify how the xbox was modded initialy. i have a "unknown" bios version. i cannot see a installed modchip. and rocky5 softmod disk does not give me any options to update the softmod.
      Would it seem that this could be an tsop fixed unit? from what i can remember, i do not think the unit was opened, so im unsure it its a tsop or softmod.
