This mod comes with some very strict limitations to what consoles can and cant be JTAG'd. Some of these limitations are...
The JTAG CANT be done on ANY console manufactured after June 18th 2009. Also ANY console that has been on Live since last summers (summer of 09) dashboard update and has played ANY game that has come out since late summer 09 cant get this mod as well.
To determine if your console can be jtaged do this.
Look on the back of your console to see the manufacture date. If it is older than June 18th 2009 then you can go to the next step. Turn the console on and go to the system settings then console settings. Scroll down to where it says console info. Look for the kernel version. If it is anything from 2.0.8495.0 or higher then there is no JTAG in the future for that console. If however it shows 2.0.7371.0 or lower you pass that test then you can move onto the third and final test. Pop off the faceplate and look to see if it has a refurbished sticker on it. If it does there may also be a good chance it cant be jtaged. You wont know for sure until you dump your consoles NAND to check what CB version you have.
This FAQ had lead me to contradict my opinion on whether I can jtag my xbox 360 or not. I purchased my 360 around release date but it's been in for repair(or replacement) two or three times. Unfortunately I don't remember if it was past summer 2009 but my best guess would be yes. Also my friend dusted off my 360 so he could play his new copy of L.A. Noire (obviously a game newer than summer 2009). He said yes to an update from the disk. The 360 hasn't been on live in years so I checked the kernal earlier today and it said 2.0.12625.0 (bk was 2.0.1888.0) Is my system still jtagabble or will these other factors stop me from being able to jtag? I'm asking because I was hoping to order a Xecuter NAND-X & JTAG Connection Kit and didn't want to piss away money. Would I be safer with just flashing the dvd firmware? Any help is greatly appreciated.
