Xbox One X wifi/bluetooth removal

Before i jump at buying the X, can anyone answer whether I can remove the internal wireless chips on the console to play with wired net and pad? This is possible with the Xbone, wondering if anyone who has voided their warranty could test it for me?

If possible i'd like to know if it's just the wifi chip on the side needing removal or the front chip too.

Please don't respond with the console emits rf inside etc or why microwave pulse is harmless, that's not the response im looking for. Thanks

Ok, went out on a limb and just did it. Remove the two wireless cards and you can still run your xbox with a wired controller. No IR or power switch turn on, so you will have to turn on with the wired controller. I'm EMF sensitive and this did the trick.

Just plug in a network cable, the system will override using cable.

I don't believe this to be true. The XBOX One uses wireless for more than network communications. The only way to effectively remove any major RF emissions from the system is to remove the modules. I've done so on the XBOX One standard version, but not sure if it will work on the One X.

Yeah I was talking about the Internet functions, for Xbox Wireless connectivity of controllers, you have to cut power to the wireless card itself. If I remember correctly, MT7612 is the chipset for Xbox Wireless, take that one off the system. I'm not sure if this module is critical to Xbox system powering up.

It works. I removed both wireless cards in my Xbox One X and everything seems to work so far except (for the obvious and) the front power on switch (use your wired controller to turn on) and the front IR reader. I took a meter to it and with the network cable in the back there were no emissions (controllers, wi/fi or otherwise). Hope this helps.
