    Hi , Im doing my best to learn as much as i can before posting, but need a little nudge in right direction.

    our family will soon have 2 xboxes

    1 x Elite 250gb "Falcon" motherboard current Dashboard 2.0.13599.0

    1 x Slim 4Gb "Trinity " current Dashboard unknown (hasnt arrived yet)


    We are wishing to mod both but realise there are slightly different ways

    wanting to be able to rip games from xbox onto a external drive / or xboxes drive.
    emulators and Freestyle Dash /equivilent.
    Something like this .....


    Reset Glitch Hack (RGH) mod for Xbox 360






    Submitted by admin on Sat, 11/26/2011 - 10:32





    This mod will allow the following functionality on your Xbox 360
    • Backup your games to a USB harddrive or your Xbox 360 harddrive.
    • Run your games directly from your harddrive without the need for a disc in your drive.
    • Your console will boot directly to Freestyle Dash, which will have a listing of the games on your harddrive. You can then just select the game you wish to play.
    • Will play any region game.
    • Xbox Live Arcade games can be added to the harddrive and played.
    • Any homebrew games/applications can be run.
    • Emulators can also be added and used.
    • Dash updates etc can be applied using a usb drive. There shouldn't be any need to send the console in to keep it up to date with new game formats etc.
    Disadvantages of this mod
    • This mod is not safe for Xbox Live. Once your console is modded, you won't be able to go on Xbox Live at all.
    • When you turn your console on, it will take a little longer to boot the console than before, average time seems to be around 15-20 seconds, but can occasionally be up to a minute. (Once the console is on, games will boot just as quick, if not quicker than before).
    what do i need to do both?

    Ive been watching youtube vids
    where they say you need
    Xecuter Nand x
    Xecuter coolrunner glitch chip
    jtag programmer, and various software.

    These guys are half an hour away http://www.modsuppli...talog/index.php

    what chips do i need?
    http://www.modsuppli...ck3i-p-912.html
    http://www.modsuppli...ev-c-p-982.html

    ???
    there are so many different cool running chips?
    ive downloaded quite a few different youtube vids, but they all seem slightly different!

    help!
    ps i feel very comfortable from what ive seen on the videos, its just knowing what hardware etc needed for my consoles

    For my Trinity I used a Matrix glitcher V2 (because the glitch software is already on the chip) and I made my own Jtag cable to dump the nand (but you may want to get a Nand-X for that)

    You could use the same chip/setup for the Falcon too.


    If your not comfortable doing the mod yourself there are people who can do this for you.

    Well if that's the case you should be good to go with 2x Matrix Glitcher v2 and a Nand-X :)

    Using a NAND-X makes the dumping process faster compared to a LPT cable.

    You only need a TX Coolrunner (or similar chip) and a low watt fine tip soldering iron.

    I advice you to be VERY careful when soldering to a 360.
    The points are small and it's easy to screw it up.
    VERY EASY! to screw it up.

    As for youtube videos.
    I personally don't trust them at all since most of them are fakes and liars.
    Instead use this for Phats: l ink and this for Slims: link
    Use this for installing the Glitch hack it self: Link

    Also be sure that your 360's aren't on 15572.
    This will kill the RGH for the time being.

    The TX Coolrunner is good.
    The NAND-X is also good.

    About your soldering iron.
    It is equal or less then 30w max?
    With a 2 or 3 millimeter tip?

    And just make sure your dashboard is 14699 or lower.
    14719 and 14716 are glitchable but require an extra wire.
    Dash+Kernel 15572 isn't glitchable without having a CPU Key + NAND Dump from a 14699 same rev 360.

    Atleast for the time being 15572 IS NOT glitchable!

    QSB or wires don't really matter for the NAND-X

    Only thing is that you can do it somewhat more nicer looking with QSB's


    Yep.
    Don't update it past 14699.
    It's easier to glitch at lower dashes.
