If you like chips then drop Psycho_Chewbacca a line. He accepts bitcoin and actually released a new chip and BIOS. The XBLAST OS. Hes based in Quebec Canada and a good guy, had a number of dealings with him. Otherwise I would suggest going Babylon softmod and HDD build, its the continuation of the SID/AID line. Some fixes over the 5.11 and 5.12 releases but overall still the same as always, rock solid and retard resistant

well i dont have bitcoin lol i was thinking of getting a bunch of aladdin chips plus2 ones but want a very reliable one does he have install instructions for his chips. I just picked up one with 800 xbox games on it but noticed it was a 1.6 and no modchip or even a presence of a modchip installed i thought you needed modchips for the 1.6 but again been a very long long time ha.


whats the best method to unlock the hard drive or best method to back up all the games just in case this hard drive goes i notice it was a 2tb hitachi and i dont like the hitachi line lol so if any advice on this would be awesome.

My bud brought his xbox over i sold to him a long time ago and has the x3 ce chip installed it needs new caps so im going to put those in and maybe if this works put the hard drive in there and unlock it then i should be able to see it on my windows computer right?

No XBOX version requires a modchip, in fact I personally advise against going that route. The issue with the 1.6 was the dash but we sorted that out years ago Very Happy I rock a 250GB 1.6B past 7 or so years, runs like a champ using SID 5 Babylon.

For unlocking the drive there are a few methods. You can boot up the XBOX with a game then unhook the HDD when the game loads, use an app like configmagic and pull the HDD while the XBOX is still on, or dump the eeprom and FTP it to a PC and use XBOXHDM to unlock it with your PC..

As for backup the only way is FTP. The best method is with a PC that has 2 ethernet ports or a PC on wireless running shared connection with the XBOX. That way you will get 10+MB/s transfer speed. Classic via router/modem connection youre looking closer to 2-5MB/s speed.

And whatever you do dont replace the HDD with a WD drive. POS all around. Good platters bad mechanics and crap out after a few years where as Seagate will last you a decade or so. WD aint what it used to be. Just lost a few weeks ago my third WD and all my most recent source code for KIxxx, Zsnex and SMSPlusX

when you did the softmod on the 1.6 was there anything different or is a guide pretty straight forward for it in the softmod package?
