Using one first cousin's data, I was able to partially phase my X-chromosome and those of my brothers and another first cousin. For more, see my blog post at http://linealarboretum.blogspot.com/2012/11/phasing-x-chromosome.html.

Those are so very interesting stats.. especially the your brother Chuck’s X-DNA is 97% from our grandfather and only 3% from our grandmother. I would have guessed those kind of percentages would be very rare and mostly be near even , but I guess the X recombination can drastically vary.

Those figures are suppositions on my part. I can't swear to it, but with the lack of matching on the X we are pretty different.
