Default Confused about LPC vs X-ecuter 2

sponsored links

 
Hi I'm about to buy a modded xbox from a guy, but he advertised that hes selling it with X-ecuter 2 (pro version- dunno what that is) the post was admittedly about a month old,

but i called to ask a few questions regarding the dvd drive issue, and he said that he now uses the LPC as there is no difference anymore between LPC and x-ecuter 2- he says its LPC flashed with x-ecuter 2 bios (i think- sorry i'm a newbie to modchips)

Is this true?

yea its true that lpc can be flashed with xecuter bios.. most modchips can be flashed with any bios..

but if you are going to get the lpc mod with x2 bios

make sure u get the x2 4976.02 bios (newest and best)



heres a break down on x2pro chip if you want to know about it. if not just ignore it



most flashable mod chips can be flashed with any bios.. including the x-ecuter bios.. but the x-ecuter-2 pro you get a 1 meg bank.. which means you can have 4 different bios.. lpc which is probably a cheapmod which you can get for like $15 i think.. but most have 256k banks.. which is fine.. but if you wnat a robust and reliable one i would go with a xbox with x2pro or you can go for the cheaper x2lite modchip.. both can be flashed with different bios..

sorry if that was confusing ill give you a break down of what the x2 pro has

-1 meg bios
-flashable bios
-external programmer
- No need to remove when flashing.
- Flash protection jumper.
- On/Off Dip Switch, connected to the External adapter, no need to solder your own case switch.
- LPT Port, connected to the External adapter - For flashing your BIOS via your printer port on your computer
- 1x 1MB/2x512K/4x256 BIOS chip capacity.
- Works on all XBOXES (version 1.0/1.1/1.2).
- Works on all regions (JAP/USA/PAL).
- Works with 0 wire (NO SOLDER) pogo pins add-on. (found here)
- Works with XBOX LIVE. ** if you disable it
- Works with XBCONNECT. ( ***********.xbconnect.com )
- Comes with Pin Headers, 9 wire adaptor, FCC cable ***, and External adapter

cheap mods- well there cheap.. not really reliable.. but they do what its functioned for.

There are 2 components when it comes to chips.

- the chip itself, Xecuter 2 Lite, Pro or cheapmod
- the BIOS code.

The real Xecuter 2 lite and Pros have a 1MBit flash chip. It can hold 1, 2 or 4 BIOS images. 4 x 256K chunks.

Cheapmods are 256K only, so they can only hold 1 BIOS image. Who needs 4 images anyway??

Team Xecuter released the code on their chips in a 256K format, so that cheapmods can use the code the real chips use. On the outside, you would not know if there was a real Xecuter or a cheapmod inside.
