    I've just bought a new 60GB Pro Jasper off eBay for £85 + £13 postage. lot is 0904X, team is FDOU and Dash is pre NXE. However what's bothering me is the cardbox it was in had Microsoft tape, which is making me wonder if it's a refurb. Console casing has the odd mark, same goes the HDD, spring on USB flash is broken and the power button isn't clickly/ needs to be pushed in further than on my Falcon. The console box itself had a clear circular seal on.

    Have their been any pre NXE Jaspers with the patched CB's?

    Do all the European refurbs have ABIR as the team?

    Check the dashboard/kernel number. If its 7371 or lower you're good to go.

    I've left it on the language selection in case I decided to resell it. It's Pre NXE manufacturered Jan 2009, so will be 2.0.6690.0 or 2.0.6717.0. It was the CB which was worrying as I thought it might be a refurb. It's the build quality which is bothering me... It has the later seal intact under the front, so i'm guessing it's a replacement for a RROD console.

    I starting to think it was a stupid thing to get, I should have just got another MB for my Falcon. Even more stupid is I decided not to put all my eggs in one basket, I found a new 0924X 120GB Elite on eBay at the same time which was £122 + £14. Why did I have such a stupid idea of wanting a Jtagged Jasper? I so regret updating my Falcon on Live.

    Dashboard is the usual metric but those built after mid June 2009 or that saw refurb (which is what might have happened here) on a similar timeframe of which we have no dates are unable to be JTAG hacked despite possibly still being at an earlier dash.

    It might have been a failed return- what you describe sounds like someone pulled it apart/put it back together badly (maybe with a token sticker). Failing that it could just be a box; finding someone other than a 360 box to stick one in for shipping is annoying and I have given out various boxes to various friends (and got others myself) when they are shipping them around.

    I suppose it is try it and see time. You only need to dump the first 2 megs of the NAND to test and it does not need JTAG wiring for just dumping the NAND.
