If you find a NEW console made before June 18th, 2009. BUY IT, BUY ALL OF THEM, I will gladly buy them from you for a little $$ profit, or straight up trade you for a new jasper pre-flashed.
June 18th, is when MS blocked the Jtag hack. IF you can find an exploitable console, look into doing this too.
It's FAR superior to a dvd flash mod!

I want to run my burned backups, I want to install at least the 250GB hdd and run games from there without the need for the dvd to be in the drive... so will the jtag allow me to do all of this without flashing the dvd? or does the dvd firmware still need to be flashed, in which case it matters which dvd rom I get in the console. I hope I made that clear enough... thanks!
Edit: Also just read there is no mod for jasper 256/512... so i just want to verify, if I can find a console that is made prior to June 18th 2009... that's all I need? doesn't matter if it's elite, arcade, or pro... doesn't matter what motherboard it has... just as long as it's prior to that date I will be able to jtag it? Also, Live is of no concern whatsoever to me... just what I pointed out earlier is what i want. Like with my original XBOX, I installed a large HDD and installed all of my games to it and ran them straight from the HDD without getting up and putting disks in all the time.

Technically- no, you don't have to flash the dvd firmware to do or operate the jtag hack. HOWEVER it certainly makes things like the initial loading of XEXloader a LOT easier, otherwise you will be stuck loading xexloader onto your hard drive via PC.
*I'm not sure if the new dash released this week (the FTP one) will allow you to FTP xexloader to the console hard drive or not?) I still haven't made it to using the new dash with FTP support. Still playing catch up in m life/business. Got a new bag tonight and decided to take the night off, maybe I'll do it tonight? probably not.
Yes, ANY NEW xbox360 made before June 18, 2009 is a GUARANTEE to be Jtag-able. And an easy dump drive, well assuming you are brave enough to make/purchase a spear.
EDIT- Jtag console removes the "authentic Microsoft hard drive restrictions" I'm using a normal 2.5" 500gb Hitachi hard drive, I pulled out of a dead laptop. Without any alterations done to it, other than simply formatting it in my NXE dash.

Now as for this Hitachi statement.... LOL ANY new console you find WILL BE a Lite-on. If you are going for an exploitable console you will get a Lite-on 74850c drive. Unless you buy used/refurbished then you have a CHANCE of something older than a Lite-on. For the 74850c you'll need a connectivity kit with a spear, or be prepared to make your own. The Lite-on has been the ONLY drive in the 360 for almost two years now? ??? I do a lot of drugs dates/judgments in time spans are not my specialty.

Ok just did some quick reading. Tomorrow when I buy the 360, Once I get it home I should verify that the drive is Lite-on. After that, I should order Maximus 360 Xtractor PRO and Maximus 360 Spear. Those 2 units will allow me to flash the firmware of the dvd drive. Once the firmware is flashed, proceed and follow the tutorials for jtag'n the 360. Sound right?

And yes, your basic reading is correct, but you technically don't even need to flash a drive for XBR, it's just the easiest way to get XEXloader onto it.

Just browsing the dvd drive database and I came across something... XBOX 360 Arcade Unit made on 2009-06-17 with a Lite-on with firmware 83850c. Would that be the perfect thing to buy for my needs?
Posted 19 January 2010 - 09:22 AM
EDIT: yes, the 83850c drive made BEFORE the June 18th cut-off date would be the first version of the 83850c and it can EASILY be dumped by you, without any extra toys/spears being needed. Only toy I can think of you MAY HAVE to have is a via6421 pci to sata controller card, to obliterate any compatibility issues your motherboard chipset MIGHT have with Lite-on drives.
