    I have an RGH Jasper and it works but lightning hit it a few years ago and knocked out the HDMI and the boot time is 2 minutes due to how it was modded. So I have another Jasper that someone is RGHing for me that should have instant boot times and with HDMI. My question is simply can I plug the hard drive (internal, not external) from the old one to the new one and the files will be there, or will it make me format since it's a different console? I don't want to lose my setup and saves.

    thanks

    Jtag and RGH internal drives are swapable - Same with old Xbox classic.

    Im actually cloning a 3TB now for xbox on a cloning station for another xbox.

    Yep. As long as the HDD didnt get fried itll work exactly the same as you remember. No formatting required, just plug and play.

    Yeah the hard drive is fine the lightning strike happened 2-3 years ago and everything works except the HDMI hasn't worked since it happened, just got tired of slow boot times (that was unrelated to the lightning, it was just modded wrong I guess)

    This.
    Except the original Xbox has a HDDkey which has to match the board.
    Modchips and TSOP flashed xboxes accept zero'd out and unlocked drives.

    Its probably just an old hack. Phats were finicky before rgh 1.2, especially Jaspers.1.2 will be what your guy is doing, Im sure.

    they're swapable? I thought that the 360 would require the serial number of the system or is that only for formatting?
