I took off my jewel from my 1.0 xbox, and the back of the jewel was entirely rough silver.
I took off my friend's jewel. He has a 1.4 xbox. His jwel has a silver rectangle on the back around the letters, the rest of the back is green.

this is what the back of the 1.4 looked like:

this is what the 1.0 jewel looked like:

Maybe 1.0 jewels are different than other version jewelS? lol

I'm planning to put hot glue in the letters of the 1.4 jewel, then to clear jewel and reapaint it black.
Anyone want to confirm that hot glue will keep the silver lettering?
What kind of paint should i use?
Will rock paint from liek 6th grade work?

I know people use hotglue to remove the silver lettering but i guess as long as you didn't pick the hotglue out it would keep it in tact.

I dont know how you plan on clearing the jewel but i used mineral turpentine and it cleared fine (i just went careful around the lettering)

Use spray paint to paint the jewel, mask off the front and the side and spray.

yeah, i noticed the same...
1.0's have the whole back covered in silver... it was really a pain in the ass.


I ended up fucking up the jewel because brasso didn't take the silver off very well, and my nail polish remover (although non-acetone) screwed up the plastic.
