Legality of Xbox mod chips in the UK?

Hey guys,

Are mod chips illegal in the UK? I have been told they are but I can find many sites operating and/or willing to ship them to the UK. The reason I wanner chip mine is so I can back-up my disks.


Mod chips in and of themselves are not illegal. The sale of them in England and Wales is, I can’t comment on Scotland or Northern Ireland as they have seperate legal systems and so someone from those areas would have to answer that one. Therefore you can buy them from elsewhere and fit them, but it would then be illegal for you to sell the console on while it still had the mod chip in it.
