I know I have all the software, what I'm more concerned about is my resistors and such. I have the things necessary to build my own LPT cable, but do I need to put resistors on the DB25 connector end AND soldered to the motherboard or do I just need one or the other? The resistors I'm using for the LPT wires are these 100Ohm 1/8th watt carbon film resistors. http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.js...rodsInSession=1 like those but 1/8th watt. For the JTAG wiring, I'm using these 1N914/4148-Type Diode http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.js...oductId=2062576 I know I also need one of these for the LPT cable too. I also know which ends to solder to the board, I just want to make sure I have the correct diodes and resistors for everything. I've read/seen on videos that some people use 330Ohm resistors. Should I worry about using those? Most guides I've read say 100Ohm for LPT is good, and a switch diode for jtag wires also. I'm following this guide to dump my NAND and install xellous. I have all the software and files needed. For those who have JTAG'd their system, is this a reliable guide? I also am referencing this guide for materials. Some of this stuff is confusing, mostly the software part. I understand the hardware modifications, and have good enough soldering skills to do this without screwing up the motherboard. The questions I have are mainly because of differing information from one guide to another. One guide mentions something, and another guide leaves out what the other guide mentioned, or vice versa. Anyone with experience in this, your help would be appreciated. I have a xenon mobo, 2006 mfr date, kernel 7357.
