I'm in the mood for doing something I've not tried before and TSOPing one of my less used Xboxes has always been on my to do list.

Problem is the of Xboxes I have available two are v1.6 so ruled out and that leaves just three for consideration: a v1.2 which I really do not want to use as it is LE PAL Green one I've been trying to keep 'as new'. The two others are a genuine v1.0 and and confirmed v1.1.

That ^ tutorial which I found myself whilst trawling through YT for info is really only for v1.2 - v1.5 plus the guy, whilst knowledgeable, still makes some very obvious mistakes.

Consequently I'm looking for advice, specifically on v1.0/v1.1 TSOPing.

I've found, repeated on several sites the same basic tutorial with pictures. It looks as if you have to take out the whole MB so you can solder the long wire to the two points on the underside. I assume there is no simpler alternative.

Anything else useful of relevence please share.

Resale value.

I doubt it will ever come to that but a physically unmolested LE Green PAL Xbox sells used for more than three times that of a standard black model in the UK. Typical 100+.

My one is softmodded but less used than my other Xboxes and cosmetically almost factory state, the controller likewise. If my primary chipped Xbox gives up the ghost and can't be repaired the LE Green one is earmarked to replace it.

I'd hate to stuff up any of them with a botched TSOP but the LE one in particular.

DJB dropped off a near brand new Green Halo Special Edition console and that's exactly what I'm worried about. I always try to keep my gear as original as possible but when i do go overbored modding, I make sure I buy a completely different box to go crazy on. lol

eg.
1 x Atari 7800 PAL with SVIDEO (Original Untouched)
1 x Atari 7800 PAL Modded AV INputs lol
1 x Commodore 64 (Factory)
1 x Commodore 64 (Modded to the hills with case lights whatever)
The list goes on and on..

every last one of my xboxs are modded and opened up and if your console is a 1.0-1.5 console you pretty much should open your xbox cause if you have a clock cap in there it could blow and then your console does not work at all.

Yeh, I removed the clock caps from my own Xboxes ages ago now. Scarface reminded me. lol

I've actually been on Ebay this week looking for a TSOP-able 1.2 - 1.5 and found one quite easily. I had to contact the sellers to get confirmation of the manufacturing date. Three times otherwise perfect/sensibly priced Xboxes turned out to be either v1.0/v1.1 or v1.6s. I had one of the latter and another was very close to the v1.4/v1.5 period window, shown as mid-March 2004.

I was tempted to gamble on that but glad I did not because I found a genuinely retail state October 2003 one which should be a v1.4. The disc tray is very sticky and surprise, surprise it is a Samsung but apart from that everything works fine. Can't say the same thing for the controller (a Duke) - damaged in transit.

I've never seen as bad damage to anything I've ever bought mail order/online. The controller was wedged down the side of the bubble wrapped console so the trigger side was pressing against the side of the cardboard box. The whole right hand grip is cracked all the way through and there are two, roughly, half inch holes in the casing around the right trigger.

Write off.

But I've got a TSOP project Xbox and if everything goes to plan I'll be trying to do that some time next week.

I'm sorely tempted to try chipping one of my other spare Xboxes too. That link in another thread here to Amazon.com (US) for an Aladdin chip at under 10 including shipping to the UK is a very interesting idea.
