    Hi there. I acquired a Phat 360, Xenon, Dash version 16747. Unfortunately the DVD drive was replaced and I don't have the original firmware. What are my options? Looks like R-JTAG isn't available for Xenon yet.

    Xenons are pretty much dead in the water as far as mod support goes. TX did release an RGH variant for Xenons a few years ago but it's still massively unreliable, some people reporting boot times of up to 24 hours.

    Xenons will probably never receive R-JTAG, nor support for the upcoming CR4.
    Like Vappy said, RGH is available on 14699 but you're way past that.
    Besides, RGH on Xenon was shoddy at best.

    I think you're better off selling it for parts or have some fun with it and shoot it or throw it on the ground.

    Thanks for the quick response folks. The unit is so old it's probably just a matter of time before I get a red ring of death anyway.

    It most definitely will.
    Just sell it for parts.
    Or use it as a door stopper.
    It's not worth much anyway ;p
