I only just got around to purchasing a second-hand xbox at ebgames in Australia were selling them $99.

Although I will be putting in a larger hard-drive I'm wondering is it worth putting in mod chips these days, or just use programs like Softmods?

What is the advantages of Mod Chips over Softmod?

And, I'm told DuoX 2 GS mod chip is the best to go with these days?

Thanks guys! Smile

I wold say go with a chip thay seem to be harder to muck and much simpler to fix.
As for what chip is best thats up to the user i like the X-3 ce chip but i use the X-2 chip.
Soft mods are cheaper way to go but you need to watch what files you delete or you might need to reformat the hdd and start over.
With a mod chip you wold need to really muck it up to warrent a format.
Very Happy

Thanks Wes213 Smile

I thought that would most likely be the answer for going with the mod chip.

In Australia, getting a DuoX 2 GS supplied/installed costs around $70 so I needed to be sure what I was going to do.

BTW: It looks like I posted this in the wrong forum so maybe someone can move it, I appologise for that. I'll also be taking out a VIP membership next week as I did download AID and I think all that hard work deserves support, well done to all concerned!!! Smile

Wow... If your gonna have to drop 70 bucks to get a chip, I recomend just going with a softmod. As long as you dont do anything like delete any dashboard files you wont have any problems.

That does also include installation Very Happy

And even with the softmod, it looks like I have to buy one of those memory thingo's so I can load the files on to it to install it to the xbox. Heaven knows how much they sell them for here in Oz.

You can make an action replay with an extra usb cable and breakaway controller connector. then all you would need is the action replay software (free), a memory card, and a controller.
