    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?

    Jaspers are pretty sturdy Phatties.

    If the dash is lower then 14xxx then RGH it.
    If it's 15xxx or above then ODDE it.

    Well..
    RGH it if you want homebrew/XBLA/XBox1 etc.
    Otherwise a ODDE is far better + you can keep XBLive ;]

    RGHing means you'd lose XBLive.


    Personally I'd go for RGHing it.
    It's pretty expensive, unless you pay someone to do it.
    Otherwise, flash the drive or ODDE it.

    Thanks. If Jasper is pretty sturdy I might just do RGH if dash is lower. I'll have to get a controller tomorrow and check.

    Aye.

    A JRunner is maybe 30 quid, a glitchchip is 20 ish quid.
    Get a TX Coolrunner ;]

    Also Jasper take a few glitch cycles before they boot so be patient ;]

    Oof.

    Yeh then it's either waiting for the DGX or the new hack yes.
    However I doubt they optimize it for Jaspers etc.
    Since Xenons and Zephyrs are extremely hard to glitch.
    They prolly use the new hack for Xenons/Zephyrs.

    There have been new files released to glitch boxes that have been updated past 14719 without the need for a DGX.
    If I where you I should wait a few more days until we know more about it ;]

    Oh I see...That is good to know. I will wait a bit longer then, tho DGX is not too much extra if I must. What hardware for these files, they work with CR?

    EDIT: NVM, I find them. Very nice...seems like TX even now changes DGX to a RGH chip too :D

    I think I may just go ahead and order a CR awhile.

    TX will let users change the DGX into an RGX.

    However it's said that with normal glitchchips you can now glitch 360's that have been updated to 15xxx and above.
    Personally I'd wait for TX to come up with a new tutorial if I was you.
    It makes things a tad easier ;]

    OH I see what you mean. Yeah...so it seems that might be possible to RGH on my Jasper using normal glitchchip or DGX but best to wait until things clear up a little more. I think that's good advice :)

    Using the normal glitchchip yes.

    yeah thanks! I was a little confused with TX latest post but now they clarified: DGX can be used for dumping keys AND as the glitchchip now on slims, but still not fats.

    But something like CR using the new ECC files can now be used to dump keys and glitch Jasper w/ dash > 14719!

    I try to be patient till we learn more but I may have to order a JR and CR awhile :D

    I still wait patiently. I know it does no good to complain, but damn these guys is taking a long time to get this new hack out. I know I can do a CR on it now, but they hype it up so much I really want the new one.

    My phat sits still lonely on a shelf waiting for it.

    My PS3 waits for Cobra ode.

    At least I have my 3DS to keep me company :D

    Aye aye.
    TX take their time.
    If it's true then they'll try to work it out that it's incredibly reliable.

    Really seems like they're stretching the definition of 'soon' :P Been months now. I trust them to have good reason for it taking this long, don't want any problems with it, but I'm at least a little surprised they haven't even put out a teaser yet like they did with the DGX.

    Chances of you getting a Jasper box with 7371 are really low.
    You'll have more luck with a Falcon/Zephyr/Xenon for that.
