  • How to tell which Slim drive you have

    This will be an on going thread, feel free to post replies and I'll incorporate it into here.

    According to Rudvich, relying on the sticker color is not full proof. To be sure, open the console and look on top of the drive.

    Confirmed on my system. I had yellow sticker and after opening it up all the way, I confirmed it had 0225 FW.
    Thanks for the helpful post!

      Please verify the colour sticks in the video the yellow sticker is marked as the 9504 firmware but ryse you say you opened up your console and your DVD drive had a yellow stick but was the 0225 firmware ?

        Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that's why it's so complicated.

          not to be THAT guy but, mine has a yellow sticker clear as day, and I cracked open my 360 and it says 9504 on the label, I flashed it last night with the 9504 firmware and it works fine, jungleflasher also recognized it as a 9504 to be clear, yellow sticker and all. So relying on the sticker is not 100%, best way by me is simply to open it and look.

                Not sure what video you were watching mclacko...but I see in the video, bright yellow as 0225 and orange as 9504. I confirm again I have bright yellow sticker and have 0225 FW. If others can confirm we can see if this really works. It would be nice to have a visual indicator so we did not have to open it up and find out. I read a post here about a database and personally posted there to help give a clear picture for me and others of what FW people have. If everyone posted their info there we would have a more complete database to obtain info from.
                http://www.360drives.com/list

                From what I can tell the 9504 FW ended in July 2010 where they started using the 0225 FW in the beginning of August 2010. So using that info we can use the MFR date as a rough indicator.

                If this info has already been posted I am sorry and in no way want to take credit.

                            Not light yellow. I thought mine was 0225 because it looked yellow, but it wasn't light yellow. I opened it and it said 9504.
