My vote is for X3 CE, but with xecuter stopping the shipments to us they will become hard to find in a little bit.

Yes the X3 CE solderless is all that and a bag of chips if you can find one. If you do find one just make sure you take the bank switch off before trying to flash the bios. Me and Wes found that out through much trial and error huh Wes? Laughing My wife's computer still has like tweny bios on it leftover from our attack on the flashing!!!!! Laughing

I would say Xecuter 3CE. I just recently chipped my first Xbox and it was quick and easy with the Solderless Adapter and very noob friendly. Flashing the chip is so freakin easy I almost thought I was going about it wrong at first because thats how easy it was.

Uh idk but I used consolesource.com (note that this was before the raids but it is based in Canada so I dont know if that will affect if you can get it in the US or not). They got it to me quick and everything was in stock (they might take paypal).

Sounds like a pretty impressive chip. How much do they run for and is it really that easy to install???
