hi jizzle,

You can buy xenoGC's rather cheap from www.techsick.com, they're located in Australia. As for cases, you'll be lucky to find a single place in australia to get any.. try spain or the link in the other thread (canada)

yes, divineo.es

try to find someone in spain to order it for you though...if you order from outside spain they want weird IDs from you (which i didnt want to give them...)

It certainly is the cheapest I'm not sure of compatibility, but if your buying one modchip why not get a Viper GC Extreme or Qoob Pro, soon those wil run out while xeno's are still in production so, why not get a rare modchip with more features?

i would like the best and most feature packed chip, i dont wanna do hours of research, just ask the pros THE BEST chip in ur opinion, i mite go with the Viper gc extreme cos the name is pretty kickass. plus my cube is a launch console so i dont think tht would be an issue.

Viper GC extreme or Qoob Pro are both pretty much equal. Qoob pro is more simple with less features, but can boot homebrew pretty quick from flash. ViperGC Extreme has so many extra features, many that you probably won't use :P

Don't know where you heard that but if you get a Viper GC Extreme USB you install the mod plug in the USB adapter with the dip switch set to firmware upgrade and flash the BIOS through the PC (with the GC Turned on). Nice thing with the Viper Extreme is that the ability to flash a firmware is hard coded (at least it seems to be) into the chip so no matter what IPL or BIOS you put on you can easily revert back to a Viper GC Bios.

Easy as pie 8-)

If you have problems with your usb, like what happened to me, then you can still use a dvd-r to flash the firmware...
