So I agreed to buy my cousin's Elite 360 console which means my old Xbox 360 console can finally be experimented on to try and run backups. Here's all the information I have about it. The dashboard hasn't been updated for a while and it's on dashboard 2.0.14699. The DVD drive is a Samsung and the console itself was a premium model from 5 years ago. No HDMI connector but has a manufacturing date of 2006-01-06. In an ideal world, I would love to get XBLA games as well but from my understanding, this requires a Jtag and I'm guessing it's not possible at all on my console since it's been upgraded past the "blades" dashboard. If that's the case, then my second "wishlist" would be a no fuss, "burn game to dual layer, play". Actually, playing from a HDD would also be nice but I figured I need to learn before advancing.
