Version 1 and Version 1.1 (V2) can both be chipped with the Xodus. EvoX confirmed the EvoX3.6 BIOS working on a V1.1 Xbox with the Matrix, read the nfo that comes with the BIOS. (#xbins)

[B]Yes it does work.

Altough it's a bit more difficult to fit as the header socket it uses on the xbox motherboard is not filled with solder, so the pogo pins can't seat properly.

You would be better of getting a cheapmod. Cheaper and more reliable.

if so do think its possible to use solder to fill the headers sockets to make it easier to seat the marix ??

Well, I have a new Xbox. Dated 11/20/02. 2 of the holes are not filled with solder, and I have spent about 4 hours trying to align the matrix chip, but can't since it won't seat properly. I am now debating filling the holes with solder, just don't want to mess anything up.

I am sure microsoft did it on purpose!

Ya, that's the same thing I mentioned on the other post. People on other forums just filled the holes with solder and it seems to work fine. (v1.1 board)

Put a X-Ecutor 2 lite in my xbox last week
Used the pin header adaptor that came with the kit and had no problems
works a treat

So the way i see it is to get a Matrix to work on a V1.1 box you will have to fill the holes with solder - so much for the ppl that said they would rather put it a matrix mod as it is supposed to be a no solder mod - lol

The X-Ecutore 2 is not hard to fit only the d0 point is tricky but gets easier with practice

This was the first mod that i have fitted and it took me 20 min in total
5 min to solder in the pin header and about 10 to solder on the d0 point.

since the X-Ecutor 2 is only 30 ($44) and it was going to cost me 60 (%59 for chip and $20 for postage) for the Matrix and both require soldering on a V1.1 box then i think i went the right route
