    Planning to Buy XBOX360

    Hi I'm planning to buy XBOX360.

    What do I need to look for if I want to jtag and/or jungleflash it?

    What's the manufacturing date should I buy?

    What firmware version(is it called firmware version?) should I look into?

    Well you won't really find a new xbox 360 which is J-TAG vulnerable since the newer ones (sorry, can't provide specific date) have newer kernels (basically firmware version) in the 8xxx range and Microsoft have made it so you can't downgrade it to a lower kernel. You can't J-tag a 360 with kernel that high, it has to in the 7xxx range or lower. Basically that means you have to buy a second hand 360, check the kernel and if it has 7xxx kernel or lower then it should be j-tag vulnerable since the newer ones don't come with a kernel that low, they're all in the 8xxx range. Also you'll get an instant ban from Microsoft if you J-Tag it! (if you use xbox live)
    Good Luck!

    I'm looking for new consoles to tinker with. And there are games that are not in Wii. I want to play FFXIII for example.

    jTagging is dependent on the dashboard kernel. I believe you need to be at 7371 or lower, which is dated around last August.

    This is also what I know. A saleslady said that the manufacturing date of their xbox360 is June 2009. So I was hoping I could jtag it.

    tmbinc (who is i think a big name in console hacking scene)in his tutorial says that it works on kernel 849X or did I misread it?

    First, determine your kernel version. This hack has been verified to work
    until the 849x-update (summer 09).
