XBox RAM upgrade question

Postby squattingmutt » Sun Jul 22, 2018 6:55 pm

I have a 1.6 MB that I'm considering cannabalizing the memory off of to use on my softmodded 1.1 MB. Does anybody know if they used the same / compatible RAM between these 2 versions?

Can't run a RAM upgrade off a softmod for starters. Not all unofficial bios support it either.

Also, No. The 1.6 chips have F firmware, the 1.0,1.1, Chihiros, and debugs use M firmware.

The firmware code is the last digit before -QC50.

The only advantage of adding memory to a xbox is for emulation purposes only.
No game will make any use of the extra RAM as it's not needed by the original hardware.

First before the ram installation you need to flash the tsop or (modchip) of the xbox with a 128mb compatible bios like IND BIOS or XECUTER,for the rams you can use 1.6 rams on a 1.0-1.5 you can mix them as long as they are samsung QC-50 (1.6 hynix ram wont work for this).

Optional you can flash the tsop or modchip ->before<- you install the rams with the XBLAST OS bios this way you can test each one by one to ensure that they work. :lovetiz:
