    after endless reading of this and other forums, coupled with the introduction of the solderless MC, i've decided to take the plunge and mod my box...or maybe i'm just bored. here is what i have and what i plan on buying. could a more experienced poster (RUSTY) please look at my planned setup and tell me if i need to lurk a little longer before taking the plunge. suggestions would be appreciated.

    Have:
    Intel P4 2.5Ghz
    512MB SDRAM
    120Gig HD
    HP DVD Writer 300n (DVD+r\+rw)

    Buying / Getting:
    Chameleon (pre-flashed w/linux Cromwell BIOS) w/Solderless Adapter

    Craxtion ISO tool

    thanks agent.

    a couple quick questions:
    Nero seems to be the burn software of choice, any issues with roxio creator 6 burning the iso?

    what about about my choice in chips. does the chameleon have any worts? honestly, the solderless feature is what sold me. also, easybuy2000.com seems to be the only place to purchase it at. are they still having shipping problems? oh yeah, do i need or should purchase the Programmer?

    thanks man

    i used nero 6, and i heard from a lot of people that Easybuy2000.com sucks bad. like this one guy said that he didnt get his chip 60 days after he purchased it. i would say get a Xecuter 2.2 pro from modchipsource.com. they have good ships there. and they come with external switches. and the charmeleon doesnt, you have to flash it with a CD.

    A couple of things you may wanna check out first.
    EvolutionX dash v1.8.3921.
    Team Xaviers Auto Installer - www.xbox100.com

    Easybuy2000 isn't the only reseller of Chameleon chips ;) But I have ordered from them plenty of times and have had both bad and good experiences. Mostly good. You have to consider that most people that do have a good experience with Easybuy and installing their chip don't post asking for help.

    Also once you make your ISO correctly you can use any burning software to burn the disc. I use Roxio EZ CD Creator 5 and have no problems.

    With DVD+R and RW's you may find that not every brand of disc's works with your Xbox, especially the cheaper no name brands.

    The Chameleon is a great chip. It's best feature is not having external switches hanging out of the Xbox. Everything can be controlled using the EvolutionX dash.

    well phatstrat, im not going to keep this argument going for fear of being banned from afterdawn.com forums, so, think of it this way

    1. Who designed the arm for the International Space Station? WE DID!
    2. Who developed insulin injections and saved millions of diabetic's lives? WE DID!
    3. Who developed the worlds first wireless technology and sparked the digital age? WE DID!

    So next time you are watching NASA or see a diabetic or lift your cell phone/cordless to your ear, think of Canada!

    I just bought an xecuter 2.2 lite. it has cromwell bios & is asking for a bios cd. Do i have to download & install linux or can I use anyhing else. I only use my xbox for games & want to keep things as simple as possible.
