Unhappy wots the point upgrading bios ?

sponsored links

why ?
i heard that its a lot better to just chip the xbox and leave the original bios intact , play online and get no hassle .why do it ? just to take chip back out?
wot are the pro's and cons for and against changing the bios ?
i take it the xbox will still do every thing if it is just chipped (won't it?) withouht bios flash?

You have to have some kind of bios on the chip to be able to play backups. Some chips come flashable and some are not. The ones that are not have the bios built in. Folks who have flashable mod-chips like Matrix and Xecuter are always looking to have the latest bios. Its like getting a new mod chip everytime new bios are released.

The main reason to update the BIOS is to allow the use of larger harddrives. Just about everything else can be done without altering the original BIOS.

If using a larger harddrive doesn't interest you then there's no pressing need to updating the BIOS.
