Question Should I try and solder in a modchip?

sponsored links

 
Hi, I was wondering how difficult it is to install a modchip, the 9 connector one (X-ecuter 2 I think, its not released yet). See, I have installed 3 modchips in Playstations before, and two of them ended up not running cd's (or something was loose, I didn't know too much about it at the time) and the other one went smooth enough. Do you think I would mess up an X-Box? I don't know if proffesional installation is an option because I don't have much money right now. I want the X-ecuter 2 because I have a version 1.1 and it has more benifits then the matrix. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions for me?? Please, if you can help, please do.

Well, would you rather mess up your Xbox, and then having to professionally repair it or just have it professionally installed.

Just be careful, use solder flux/paste, etc. I would just get it installed if you are not sure. Save your self the hassle. Have you seen all the posts on the matrix (for god's sake, it's a NO solder mod.....just some flashing.....)

If you have to ask, then get it professionally installed. That means you are unsure about your soldering skills.

why not wait for the x-ecutor 2? they are going to release a "pogo-pin" (no-solder) adaptor so you'l get all the features and won't have to solder a thing
