Original Xbox Ram Upgrade Service
for Motherboards versions 1.0-1.5
If you would like your Xbox motherboard upgraded to 128mb of ram then you can send me your Xbox motherboard, and I will install the extra 64mb of ram and flash your TSOP chip with a bios that will make use of the extra ram. Once your TSOP chip is flashed you will no longer need your hard drive locked, which makes upgrading or replacing your hard drive a lot easier than with softmodded Xbox’s.
I charge only $30 for the labour, and $30 for the price of the chips for a total of $60.
*All installed ram will be thoroughly tested to make sure it is recognized, and can be utilized.
Because shipping can be expensive, I would like people who are interested in this service to only send me their motherboards as this can really cut down on shipping costs.
Shipping charges for sending me your motherboard and sending it back to yourself should be only about $30 even if you are in the United States it shouldn’t be more than $15 one way, prices may vary depending on your location.
*If you are sending me your motherboard from outside of Canada, do not put a value of more than $20 on the motherboard or else there will be duties, taxes, and a handling fee to be paid when it arrives at my door. Although you can send it as a gift, by just including a card or other notice indicating that it is a gift, and give it a value of up to $60 without having to pay any duties, taxes, or handling fees.
*Please check to see how much shipping will be to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, Postal Code S7R0G6 (this is where I am located) from your location before purchasing this service.
In order to take apart your Xbox and take out the motherboard, I would ask you to follow the guide that is available for download here

and follow the section labelled “system disassembly” under heading “General Information” until you get to the part that tells how to remove the controller ports. The part about unscrewing the two screws in the power supply (PSU) and removing it from the case can be skipped as it is not necessary for removing the motherboard.
Once you have removed the motherboard, wrap it from the front of the Xbox (where the controller ports plug-in) to the back of the motherboard (where the video port is) in some anti-static bubble wrap (you can get this many different places) and place it in a strong box. The box can be as thin as 2 ½” (I wouldn’t go any thinner than that) and at a minimum of 9” long and 9” wide. I personally use boxes that are 11 ¼” x 9” x 2 ½”.
Here is a photo of what your packed up motherboard should somewhat look like before shipping.
Here I have the motherboard wrapped in anti-static bubble wrap (the pink stuff) and then a little bit of half inch plain bubble wrap on the bottom of the motherboard and wrapped around to cover most of the top. I also added some extra bubble wrap on the sides so that the motherboard would not move during shipping. This is important, you do not want the motherboard to be able to move inside of the box, or it is at risk of being damaged.
If you have followed my recommendations for packaging your motherboard it should be fine during shipping.
Once you purchase this service I will attach the address you can send your motherboard to on the invoice I send to you through paypal.
