Can Every New Console Be Flashed?
Posted 16 November 2009 - 08:59 PM
And now that I've read about JTAG, I wonder if flashing it somehow makes it impossible to use homebrew as well?

That's a bummer. What drives are not flashable, and is there anything one can do? Is there a way to tell before you buy it? Wouldn't want to buy one and realize I got one with the wrong drive.
if your xbox was manufactured after august, chances are its unmoddable.

some have new shells with newer dates i had a liteon 74 repair dated 10-04-09 yesterday
new elites normally have the latest drives 09-c 8 series
buy a second hand box if your going to flash it save your cash 08 onwards should be safe of the rrod problem

I assume the new drives will be flashed eventually, but I just can't wait that long.

So if I find one made pre august, I should be safe? Is it possible to see that when you're in the store?
You can see the Lot number on the box in store. Not sure if you can see enough of the label on the console though. If you can't see enough of the console label then make sure the lot number on the box is 0932x or earlier. 0932x is early august boxes but from what I've seen are flashable.
