This is just like a homebrew mod, except this is even harder to install. You have to remove the BIOS and put this thing in. Or you could solder wires to it and install it like a hombrew mod. if you are wanting something easy to install, the closest thing you can get to easy is the x-ecuter.

'No wires needed'

Maybe it comes prewired? Doesn't say anythng about not soldering though, right?

scott.

you mean pcb , and it stands for Printed Circuit Board.
now you can buy some chips with a pcb , meaning the chip is already soldered to a pcb -: a board which contains a circuit that usually has solder pads which in turn gets soldered to your xbx motherboard.
or you can get bare chips (no pcb) and the wires solder direct to the pins on the chip itself , which then go to the motherboard.

Thanks Ziggy Miggy! But does that make one of them easier to solder than the other, or are they about the same difficulty level? Thanks!
