OK, so my friend has a modded v1 Xbox with an Xecuter3. I'd like to get a modded Xbox. Lets say I get this Xbox v6 I found and install a DuoX 2 GS in it. What would the difference be? What could I load and couldn't I load?

I'm not too interested in loading Linux on it, mostly things like XBMC, region free gaming, etc etc...

Also, as far as I know, the v6 Xbox is simply harder to mod, but not "impossible" correct? I still might look for another version, I just happened to find this one that was in very good condition... Plus it's my roommate so I might be able to get it kinda cheap Rolling Eyes

You could do it all, there is no app that chip cant run that some other chip can.
You sound like you plan to run all commen apps and XBMC as a dash so that chip will do the trick and then some.
As for hooking it up, yes the ver.6 takes a little more work but it aint that bad.

OK... I might end up going with it in the next few days, we'll see. But yeah, dashboard and XBMC. I guess what really worries me is I brought my copy of Metal Wolf Chaos to a friend who also had a modded Xbox. I'm pretty sure he also had an Xecuter3, but it was a real pain to get the system to boot to the disk. Probably some region deal...it was hard to read what it was saying seeing as the screen was in Japaneses!

So in short, what IS the difference between these two chips? I mean are there any real advantages to get one mod chip over another? I know some offer easier methods to upgrade the bios or what not, but my friend hasn't had to do anything to his since he modded it about 3 years ago...

The onley thing that really makes the X-3 better is all the addons like lcd screen wireless on off switch and it so ez to hook up and run.

When you get the chip setup and running most of the time you will never even think about it or need to do anything to it.

I love the X-3 and it is in my mind the best but i dont have one and love my X-2 just the same.
In short get the chip you want and im sure youll find your happy with it. Very Happy

All true boobs but my real point here was that if all you want the chip for is your apps and dashes then most chips will work just fine.
Dont need to sell me on the X-3 im loveing it and need to get one but there is all ways someting blocking my path to the X-3.

OK, so I'm pretty dead-set on getting the DuoX and probably my friends Xbox v1.6 Any suggestions where I should purchase the mod chip?

I also had one question regarding the DuoX. It comes with two selectable bios's, correct? What's the purpose behind this? Do the each have different features? Will both still be compatible with a v1.6?

-----

I did some research and believe I found info on the bios banks. However, I still would like to know a good place to order the chip. Oh, and I'm in the States, if that make a difference Rolling Eyes

Not sure whare to tell you to get one since the USA is being black balled for chips but im sure you can find a site just by serching.

The chip has 2 banks so you can put the normel bios on 1 and say linux or something on the other, makes a nice quick select switch.
Or you can use bank 2 to just copy the bank 1 incase something gets mucked in bank one just flip and your good to go.

Well... Where did you guys get your mod chips? I mean I can easily find places online that sell them, but I want a place I know's legit. I'm reading this stuff about DuoX clones and all. Plus, I want a place that's safe to order from... I started going through the process on one then realized the secure transfer icon wasn't up...

OK, looks like they're both going for the same price right now. I'll pick one of the two and purchase it later. I want to hold off until I know I have an Xbox Razz
