Xenon was a name directly from Microsoft. Before the name Xbox 360 was ever conceived, the name was the Xenon Development Kit or XeDK. As time went on and the name was chosen it was changed to the XDK. The names Zephyr, Falcon, Opus, Jasper etc were found most of the time on the top of the boards where the serial is posted. As for Jasper Kronos, Trinity, Corona, and Winchester, I have no idea. It is possible that these came from the nand but I wouldn't have a clue

I've never heard of Kronos, but Winchesters are in some of the more recent Xbox 360 Es and are not RGH/JTAG-able.

Jaspers were the original version. A easy way to identify them is based on the motherboard. Jaspers had the extended GPU Heatsink and standard electrolytic capacitors. The Jasper Kronos was the board revision that has the older xenon gpu heatsink, solid state PWM capacitors by the CPU and a ROL that had less than components on it.

This was the Jasper Rev1:

This is the Jasper Kronos:

Additionally, the Winchester is also known as Corona V5 and V6 which is the E console.

Not true. Corona V5 and V6 are different then the Winchester, even though they have the same case.
