I've installed a few Xbox chips with no problems. Well one Xbox fragged but I just resoldered the chip with the pinheader and it worked fine. How hard is it to install and most important will the system read DVD-R's with no problems? I am thinking about running it with the cover off or doing a mod with my dremel. I don't wanna bother if alot of tweaking is needed and if the system is real picky with media.
