    So I keep seeing 4GB new xbox slims cheap and thought it might be time to buy a few. I've noticed on sites that sell xkey that they warn they can't be used with certain drives/mrf dates. With usb pro v2 and probe 3, can I just buy any new 4GB slim and use xkey on it? I know you've told me before Dinohscene, but I'm so confused :( I've done it with usb pro v2 and Probe 3 on one slim and successfully installed xkey (the MW3 edition slim).

    The new redesigned slims... Iirc no.
    You'll need to RGH it in order to grab the FRCT.bin and your DVD key.
    Newer drives have their keys removed from the main board iirc;]

    I think you'll also need to RGH it before getting an Xkey to work on it.

    Early Slims (glossy ones) and all Phats are capable of DVD key retrieval without RGH ;]

    Argh, I'd best be on the hunt for early slims and fats in that case. So any console with a manufacture date BEFORE Aug 2011 should be good?

    Yep.
    Make sure it's not a matte Slim.
    Then you're golden when it comes to easy Xkey installation ;]
