    I've got a guy on Craigslist willing to sell me his JTAG'd Xbox 360.. He told me the dashboard version is 2.0.14719.0. I thought an Xbox 360 couldn't be JTAG'd unless it was below kernel 8495. That's the first part.

    For verification, I asked him to make a video with his phone and send it to me. It clearly shows him booting through FSD and loading a game from the hard drive... So, what kinda setup do you guys think this is? Is it a JTAG?

    Edit: He also told me the manufacturing date is Feb 2008.

    It's what we call an RGH (Reset Glitch Hack) console,,which is basically the same for the user,,but differs in how the console is exploited.

    hope that helps ;)

    Cool yea that helps! RGH is basically equivalent to JTAG in that you can play burned game ISOs through the DVD drive, and modded XEX's from the hard drive... correct?

    if the console has a disc drive,,you can flash the drive to play backup discs yes,, but in general you will extract the game ISO to a folder full of files and play it from your external or internal HDD using an alternate dashboard like "Freestyle dash" or "xexmenu"

    RGH and JTAGs do the EXACT same thing. Just HOW they do it is different. Just owning a RGH/JTAG doesn't allow you to play backup discs. You STILL need to flash the DVD drive.

    Also, when he said dash 14719, that's the Freeboot dash. Freeboot dashes can be made for ANY dash. Don't matter. My RGH Jasper is on dash 16197 right now.

    If the MFR date is 2008, ask him if it has HDMI. If not, then don't pay more than $75 for it as it's more than likely a Xenon or an Opus. If it does have HDMI, it's a Zephyr. Again, don't pay any more than $75 for it, as it will die eventually. xD Ask him what Mobo it is. Falcons and Jaspers are the best (in phats).

    Don't be afraid to ask questions!!!! Especially to the buyer! Make SURE he has the original NAND dump for that console! If not, you'll have fun building images in the future, as Freeboot dumps are rather buggy when building dashes off them.

    It's more than likely a JTAG.

    It does have HDMI.. The picture shows it with a silver DVD drive cover also. It is a white phat. He's asking $200. So $75 is a very sharp departure from that number. You're saying it'll RRoD pretty soon?

    Can't say it will RROD for sure. Need to know the mobo type. If it WAS made in 2008, has HDMI it's more than likely a Zephyr JTAG. Which RROD. A lot. :LOL: I've had to fix a ton in my day. xD Are you in the U.S? I'd take a look around our sales section. Our guys know what we're selling. ;) 200 just sounds WAY too high for a Zephyr JTAG. JTAGs aren't worth too much these days. It's a shame.

    Ask him the mobo type. If he don't know. Buy from someone that knows what they have.

    Also, $200 is pretty steep. What all does it come with?

    The listing says 6 games... These:

    nba2k13, madden 13, NCAA football 13, sleeping dogs, saints row 3, and NHL 13

    plus the console itself. I'll ask him what mobo it is.. Anything I need to be looking for in terms of mobo? (what is that btw? lol)

    Edit: Wow I feel like an idiot. Mobo must mean motherboard lol

    Who'd need games if you have a JTAG?! If they're not on retail discs, they shouldn't cost anything at all. If those are on the HDD, then he can't charge for them as he got them for free.

    In terms of a mobo, you WANT either an older Falcon, or a Jasper. Don't tell him that. Just ask him what motherboard is it.

    Mobo is the Motherboard. The board that connects everything together and makes the Xbox.... The Xbox. XD

    Yay I was right about what mobo is!! XD

    I found another listing.. This one is an RGH slim, 250 gig HDD for $200. This sounds like a much better deal.. Since the mobo is most definitely a newer quality. Correct?

    :LOL:

    A RGH slim with a 250GB HDD for 200 isn't bad. Just make sure it comes with the PSU (power supply unit).

    The listing says "all cables" so I suppose that would include the power supply. Well I guess that does it for this thread. Thanks a lot for your guys' help! I'll be using XPGamesaves for the rest of my inquiries. I was on xbox360iso.com earlier, and posted, and I was just treated like a stupid noob. I'm glad you guys are helpful of us little guys! :)

    (By the way, xbox360iso's website SUCKS).

    Never an issue man. If you have any other questions, drop me a PM.

    360 ISO was my home before XPG. The members treat everyone with under 150 posts like a newb. I never did. :LOL: They learnt real quick who i was after i made their JTAG "pro" look stupid a few times. xD After a little while they're alright.
