    Rgh needs to install additional chip? Is there any difference between chips or compatibility list. Which is better. So many questions for this two words. As i say before i never had xbox before

    I'd say get an Ace360 v3.
    There's some difference in the chips yeh, some chips are horrible knockoffs that can kill your console, some of them are not worth it in price, some are excellent.

    Ace v3 and RGH 1.2 is what you're looking for.
    Altho you said you had a USB SPi flasher, is it a matrix flasher or NAND-X/JR Programmer?
    The latter is better as it can program the chip.s

    You'll have to modify the flasher to be able to flash the chips.

    Good luck mate!
    Remember, make plenty of NAND dumps and always keep a copy of the CPU key and NAND.

    buy a jr programmer, it allows both nand dumping, and cpld (glitch chip) flashing

    Unfortunately ordered matrix already. Also jr costs much higher.
    is the Coolrunner C can be useful for programming?

    I'd pay the $20 usd, I first bought matrix flasher to be cheap, it never worked properly, then quit working all together, just expect to get what you pay for... for me it was literally a waste of money

    Cool runner rev c is an old chip, should work, matrix glitcher and x360ace if you want insta boot

    The matrix glitcher chip is okay, just don't over expect too much from the matrix nand spi dumper it may or may not work

    It can be modded as well. But in stock condition it can only read nand. Is it right?
    Sorry for dumb questions (
    P.S. canceled nand matrix order. Want to buy another one like j-r programmer

    kinda off topic, but you're making a good choice hacking a falcon. some people say it's even better than a jasper when it comes to an rgh/jtag or most reliable for some reason. I have two jtagged falcons: one with aud clamp fix, the other with normal smc. my main is the aud clamp one, cuz normal smc has weird rol glitches. the aud clamp system is also using a custom case (xcm) with white rol and purple center power button. all of my controllers (about ten of them) have white rol to go with it as well. none of these are white controllers, so it doesn't look weird. they're all using custom shells. I think I put a blue rol in the other jtag. it's light blue (including power). anyway, the system has lasted for 12+ years, and I've never had to replace the 1TB hdd, which I put in a pink hdd enclosure to go with floyd. ;) I have a gold, silver, blue, and green hdd caddies too, but they're empty atm. point being -- very reliable system. it runs cooler than my slim ps3 actually.

    Falcon/opus is the only console I've rghed that insta boots 100%, just like a jtagged unit, idk I guess it's something with the way they made falcons, using rgh 1.2 and matrix glitcher
