    So, it seems my sister's console (Jasper) has a philips liteon dg-16d2s, wich, for what I understand, is unflashable.

    I do have my old RROD Xbox, a Xenon model, with the drive flashed, can I just swap it? Of does it have to be the same model?

    Yes, however it won't be safe for Live.
    It'll lack the capabilities to respond to the XGD3 and AP2.5 challanges.

    All Phatty DVD drives are flashable.
    I don't know where you got the idea that the Liteons for Phat aren't flashable, but it's false.
