Which Xbox Should I Mod?

Post by RevWretched » Tue Oct 18, 2016 9:41 pm

I have two working Xbox consoles. One I want to mod, one I want to keep original. My question is which one should I mod? I did some investigating and it appears that I have a 1.1 revision and a 1.6 revision. From what I could find online it seems that the 1.1 is the better choice, but I'm not sure why. Any info is welcome. Feel free to go as in depth as you desire. Thanks!

TSOP the 1.1 and remove the clock capacitor
The 1.1 is 100% compatible with all games, the 1.6 has some problems with games as Jet Set Radio Future, Fable etc.

A TSOP mod is more reliable than a softmod, for example it doesn't matter if the harddrive dies .. you can just replace it with another one and rebuild the drive with Hexen or Slayer's
2x Xbox 1.0 TSOP
2x Xbox 1.1 TSOP
Xbox 1.6 chipped
Xbox Crystal 1.6 chipped
Xbox Crystal Green 1.2 TSOP
Xbox 1.6 softmod

Echoing the above really, 1.1 absolutely the way to go. TSOP is fantastic robust way to mod console and as Amigaz says, you can pop any hard drive in without having to worry about locking it etc.

with a 1.1 you have a wide range of bioses you can put onto there including 512kb bioses such as X2 5035 or even vga bios if you were interested.

If you were only interested in softmodding then I'd probably do that on the 1.6 since without a modchip there isnt anything else you could do with it.
