    There's different chips isn't there? There's one that will let you play divx and .avi, change the hard drive and DVD drive etc. then there is for games and to play pirated games. There is an Xbox forum that has about mods. Some chips are easy to install, others require soldering to the board and can be very risky.

    Yeah i know what you're talking about now. I have an XboX myself but I dont like to tamper with my stuff that much. Anyway, I remember being on a website that you can order these chips online and then you download a video which explains to you how to install them.

    I dont remember the address of the website but you could easily find it if you search in google or yahoo.

    Soldering isnt that bad, i've done quite a bit myself as part of my school work 4 years ago.

    The Microsoft warranty is only 1 year so after that, it doesn't really matter if you open it. There's a link about the chips here . A forum about it is here too.
