Just a quick note for those of you contemplating picking up the new "Casper" White Xbox 360 Special Edition 4GB Kinect Family Bundle and wondering what motherboard revision and drive it has inside. Although we had an inkling of hope that, being 4GB models, they might come with older Trinity boards, it came as no surprise that they in fact contain a Corona board and the Lite-On DG-16D5S 1175 drive. Also worth mentioning is that the packaging has changed compared to older bundles insofar as there no longer being a flap/window to reveal the serial number.
With the team's current progress, it won't be long until you'll be able to fw flash and/or RGH these.
Details of the unit we received are as follows:
"Casper" White Xbox 360 Special Edition 4GB Kinect Family Bundle
Lite-On DG-16D5S-11B, FW ver. 1175, HW ver. A0A0
MFR Date 2012-01-31
P.S. Contrary to the abundance of wild (and often plain stupid) rumours of late, c4eva is perfectly fine and is just very busy working on Lite-On 1175, among other things. If and when there's news, you'll see it — don't worry! In the meantime, please be patient and respect the amount of time and effort that's involved in what he's doing.
