Xbox 1.6/b (which includes most crystal xboxes) have a new video encoder called Xcalibur. That means that an exploit that uses PBL cannot work as the hacked BIOS's it tries to load are for the earlier xboxes with other video encoders (Connexant and Focus).

Ndure 3.x works fine as it uses nkpatcher which patches the bare minimum in the onboard BIOS. This makes it fine for Crystal Xbox's (i.e. v1.6/b)

V1.6/b do not have TSOP flash and so (unlike older boxes) does not have a free, built in, hard mod with just one solder.
V1.6/b do not have places for the extra 64Mbytes of RAM.
