Happy to say I finally own one now. I can do a lot of fun stuff with it. I even got Unity to work with it and have been busy developing a prototype for it, in addition to running unsigned code with alpha builds, beta builds of 360 titles, I even have a conversion tool that can convert final xex files to dev from retail. If I REALLY wanted to, I could get on Xbox Live with this thing, it requires jumping through a few hoops since this system was meant to connect to Partnernet originally, but Partnernet shut down in 2013.
But yeah, this is what I've been spending most of my free time doing to anyone who cares. I've wanted to get one of these guys since the 7th gen era when the 360 was a current gen console. Well better late than never. This system was manufactured on July 10th, 2009 so its a Jasper, and I bought it just last month. So its not likely for it to red ring. Its the real deal as its never been tampered with. Comes with a 120GB HDD inside the sidecar (the grey thing on top of it) and it gives me the ability to have DVD Emulation in addition to using the PIX editor since it has 2 ports for that on the sidecar.
Anyway that's it.
