Completely agree with everything on here really.
I love homebrew for all that makes it great. But every JTAG I have put up for sale has had, what sound like, an 8 year old little chav that has absolutely no idea about the privilege and what an honor it is to have such a rare item.
Besides the fact they can't be bothered to learn and do the project themselves, which I think it half the fun, they then want you to add HDD, install apps, customise COD files FOR THEM and include them in the sale and then they don't even know how to run the lobbies! I actually offered to buy one back off one little prick because he asked me to explain the WHOLE process of lobby hosting after he received the console! Do these knob-eyes just hear about it on the playground, ask mummy n daddy for a load of money and expect everything handed to them?! One lad rang and just said this "I got 200 quid off me mum for a JTAG and I want everything required to do lobbies", to which I just put the phone down.
It got to the point where I didn't even care about making money from selling JTAGs and now I have them piled up ready to sell only to grateful people who see my JTAG and are interested in homebrew. There are plenty of enthusiasts out there like us but they cant get their hands on the JTAGs OR the info because the little faggots have bought and banned all the KVs and if they do look for JTAG info all they get is "MW2 LOBBIES PRESTIGE $9.99" crap everywhere.
I hate them. They are destroying the JTAG scene, its reputation, XLink numbers and the chance for other genuine fans of homebrew to get involved. I hate them all.
On a lighter note anyone who is in the UK and will treat one of my JTAG babies rightly I have some for sale
