Just got a Jasper mfr Nov 2008 for 30 USD. Guy said it was broken, getting play dvd error. Came with no controllers, HD, cords, power brick, etc, just the console. I hooked it up to an old 250W ATX PSU I had lying around and used the HDMI output just to see if it worked. It powered up to make a profile screen. I have no controllers so couldn't check dashboard version. Also did not check the DVD player. Who knows, maybe even the dvd works, could just be a dirty laser or something for play dvd error? So I'm on the fence. thinking about doing a ODDE or something, but anything is an investment (time and $$). I'd have to buy a controller too. I just wonder what you guys think if it would be worth it to put investment into hacking this console or just to sell it on ebay and get a newer slim to hack on. I mean I want an xbox to hack on obviously, just wondering if this model maybe will die soon, might be worth to flip it and get a newer model?
