Looking for Evox and what ever else I will need to do the chipless mod. I looked at (efnet as the server... from there you type /j xbins and follow the instructions on the topic you eventually download the stuff from an ftp client)

and did not find it or anything else for the cipless mod.
OR am I just better off getting a second Xbox and doing a chip mod?
Thanks ahead of time for the help with this
