    Hi, i received my ck3 probe v3 and everything worked perfectly as you said. After work I already flashed 2 xboxs. I want to thankyou for all your help and i still find it amazing after all these years, your still helping people out on this thread.
    Also, i read that for the LT+ 3.0 firmware, that you can you can go on xbox live now and there is a slim chance you would get banned. Is that true?
    thanks again

    No prob~

    Yep, as long as you patch your backups with ABGX and properly burn them with a hacked iHAS or Burner max payload tool compatible drive on Verbatim DVDs.

    Hey I got a xbox360ace v3 which looks like this: http://i.imgur.com/adVb71u.jpg
    and a MTX SPI NAND Flasher v1.0 which looks like this: http://i.imgur.com/TQ2bRHQ.jpg

    I'm quite confused about the RGH(2) process for my Jasper (D: 16547) but is that procedure about right?:

    1. Solder the MTX to the nand and use J-Runner tool to backup and create/write ECC
    2. Program the x360ace with the nand flasher
    3. Solder x360ace to the xbox
    4. get cpu key and desolder MTX
    5. make xebuild image and flash to console

    However I just found out that I cant program the x360ace with a Matrix flasher. Is that outdated or still the case?
    JR programmer/Nand-X are hard to find here and completely overpriced. Is there no other method to program the x360ace v3 ?

    I don't believe you need to program the Ace.

    Also, make sure you unsolder the NAND dumper before booting the 360 (or atleast disconnect the dump wires from the dumper board.

    thanks but either I have to program it or I have done something wrong.
    This is what i've done so far:
    - made 4 nand backups with jrunner beta7 all checksums match
    - clicked glitch 2
    - create ecc
    - write ecc
    - desolder matrix
    - solder the ace v3 on it according to this http://i.imgur.com/HwoegRN.jpg
    - put the xbox back together
    - start
    - red light permanently is on at the ace
    - green light shortly pops up every couple of seconds and it makes the fans spin a little faster for a short time
    I've let it sit for 15 minutes but it kept resetting (i assume)

    edit: after removing the ACE the xbox behaves exactly the same until I put the NAND backup on

    Seems that Ace chips are preprogrammed for Corona 360's.
    You'll have to program Jasper timings to the chip then.

    I hear some people I can use an LPT cable to program the ace but not a mtx. Do you know if a lpt works flawless? Or any other method?

    You should be able to program it with the MTX if it's got a programmer cable.

    It doesn't have "programmer cables" but it has the programmer headers on the left side of the picture above.
    However I found in a tutorial it states this:

    "If you are using a modified matrix SPI nand flasher
    Warning: You won't be able to program an x360 ace chip with the matrix nand flasher and you will need a JR programmer/Nand-X if you're using that chip."
    The tutorial is from 2015 though so I don't know if something has changed by now

    Seems a JR programmer/NAND-X is needed then.
    I haven't soldered in chips in quite a while so I'm kinda out of it ;p

    Not to mention I never paid attention to clone chips.

    I flashed it with a JR now but no timings seem to fit. I got it to boot a couple of times but maybe only 4 boots in 4-5 hours.
    Is there a magic timing file you know of for jasper+ace360v3?

    Get a coolrunner rev 3 and RGH 1.2 it.

    There's no "magic" timing file.
    It all just comes down to wirelength and getting rid of interference.

    Make sure your reset wire isn't running near any MOSFETs and make sure it isn't to long

    Not needed, Ace chips work extremely well.

    Are Ace chips RGH 1.2 compatible?
