    An anonymous source has released a ECC file which enables the 360 to boot without a DGX.
    The DGX was used to obtain the CPU key on dash 15572 and everything above.

    TX however didn't leave this unnoticed and responded to the new "hack"
    They also released files to convert their DGX into a RGX.

    Hmm. At this rate we might even end up with the last 360 update being hackable and that would be nice. Thankfully most of the 360s I would still have to look at are way at or before the main tipping point.

    Yes.
    As a complete idiot in x360 hacking scene - what does it mean? Homebrew (and piracy) on newest firmwares, or what?

    this means that now slims (and even phats) with a dashboard above 14719 can be Reset glitch hacked. (without the need of an additional DGH board which cost around the 30 euro's)

    I'm sensing some crying from Team Xecuter. Unless I'm missing something the source said it was a good idea, basically paid for itself after a few usages, but disliked how it was so slow.

    Somehow in TX's mind that means the source thought is was terrible. TX make good, sturdy products, but their so called "dedication" to the scene revolves around $$$. I'm just spitballing here. But I'd wager a guess and say TX knew how to do it this way, but said "Hey, how can we make a profit on this?".

    I agree with Devin's first part. The release is clearly talking about how somebody using the DGX would be able to make their investment money back but it took too many uses of it.

    Either the response skimmed the readme and didn't understand that, or they're trying to paint the release in a different light (plausable as they typed more on the subject than was in the actual release note, which means they spent more time complaining than the readme is in total).

    Exactly this.
    TX makes high quality products, yes they do!
    But it is all about the biggest profit for them.

    If it was cheaply made and failed me constantly then I'd never recommend TX products.
    Despite their being greedy, they have made some good products.


    As for these files.

    Basically, you can now glitch ANY kernel with ANY regular RGH chip.
    Ofcourse I still recommend the CR3 Lite.

    The CR3 Pro is even better for great boot times.

    True, but for the budget people (pretty much 90% of this site) the CR3 Lite does the job quite nicely.
