Newbie Chat / If I Do A Factory Reset In The M$ Dashboard...
« on: September 18, 2012, 10:51:00 AM »
  • nothing bad will occur by doing a factory reset.
  • you could simply open up your nand in 360 flash dump tool to get the passcode.

Newbie Chat / Slim Liteon Dg-16d4s 9504 Update
« on: July 28, 2012, 11:21:00 AM »
More than likely, you'll need either an X360USB or a Lizard.  

It'd be a little surprising if you didn't already have LT+3.0... are you sure you don't have this?

Back to your inquiry: head over to jungleflasher.net and grab the tutorial and read through it.

Newbie Chat / Xbox Slim Heat
« on: July 02, 2012, 01:49:00 PM »
wow; i would rip it open immediately and check to see if the thermal paste is even remotely in place: i would do not much more than that than return the box to the store.

the power adapter will work just fine, and it's only $5.  that said, the 203w PSUs are /loud/ relative to the 150w jasper or the slim PSUs.  if noise is an issue, and you don't mind spending $20 more, go get a 10.83a slim PSU.

if the box is already running a 15574 xebuild image, go ahead and grab the official 15574 update from microsoft and apply it.

Newbie Chat / Some Newbie Jtag Questions
« on: July 10, 2011, 01:28:00 AM »

i am in the process of doing my first jtag. right now i am just preparing the points for when my nandx kit comes in the mail. but a couple of questions

1) is it still necessary to cut the EFUSE?


well, it's not necessary nor is it possible to cut 'the efuse'.

what is highly recommended but not necessary is to protect your efuses by either

1) remove r6t3
or
2) bridge the appropriate u6t1/2 points

to prevent efuses from being 'blown'.

QUOTE

2) i would like to do a 12v fan mod being that my board is a xenon. the question is should i do it separately by way of a 12v connection on the motherboard or can this be skipped being once jtagged you can change the fan speed through the nand.


there's no reason to do this physically anymore [even on retails (tho, for obvious reasons, it is less work to do on a retail than reading/writing its nand)].  just set your thermal targets appropriately to incent the fan behavior as desired.

the only thing you can use a date for is to tell if something could /not/ be a jasper: i don't recall any jasper manufactured before the 3rd week of october 2008.

after that, there were still falcons produced; and.. if it happens to be a refurb, well .. good luck.

your 2009.03 date has the highest probability of being a jasper, then your 2008.10.. but certainly not your 2008.07.

Xbox360 General / Hardware Chat / Dead 360?
« on: March 05, 2013, 04:16:00 PM »
this is indicative of mismatched smc code being flashed to the box; double-check that you flashed compatible smc code (ie, falcon and not xenon/opus/etc).

as long as the xilinx chip reports properly when programming, you should be good to go.

1) try different lengths on cpu-rst.  28, 35, 42-43, 50cm.  (a t-x slim post qsb makes this testing easy, but you can certainly piecemeal your own wires)

2) try switching to "phat" mode.

Xbox360 General / Hardware Chat / Xecuter X360usb And Maximus Lizard
« on: March 31, 2011, 02:48:00 PM »
I've spent a bit of time with each of these devices; as some of you may know, I'm a Jasper-guy, so all but two drives I've done with these devices have been fat LOs.

I also approach sharing my opinion about products very carefully; people should do their *own* research and consider what is best for them before taking one person's point of view to heart.  Below you will find only my opinions, tho I am attempting to be as objective as I can.

Notes:
  • for the sake of comparison, what I'm calling the "x360usb bundle" includes the probeIII w/cable, which are most likely sold separately.
  • unless you find a retailer with the original pre-order bundle, the lizard bundle currently sold no longer includes the "old" mini-spear, the scorpion now has a case and its grabbers have changed
  • I have flashed at least 10 drives with each device
  • I have had the Lizard for about 5-6 weeks longer than the X360USB, and thus have had more time to shape opinions of it.
Pictures:X360USB Bundle Comments:
  1. approx. U$75+shipping
  2. very tightly integrated into JungleFlasher -- should be considered an extension of JungleFlasher
  3. USB Cable could be longer
  4. Capacitor-less probe is just easy
  5. Shrink/wrap on probe's cable is too rigid (removing small sections helps)
  6. runs a bit warm; case recommended
  7. "it just works" with JungleFlasher
Maximus Lizard Bundle Comments:
  1. approx. U$110+shipping
  2. pairs with Lizard Toolbox (TBX), a program that interfaces with the Lizard and performs all PC-side activities, so no JungleFlasher
  3. comes with Power Drop (my favorite accessory) [edit: it's the power cable with the the small PCB w/power switch and eject button]
  4. grabbers (v1) were trying; v2 should be easier
  5. scorpion/grabbers should be replaced with something like a probeIII & cable
  6. while some users (unarguably) claim feature releases are delayed, Max has continued to push forward in releasing new code/device firmware [i bought the device to play around with it and get my hands on proof of the mpx01 trick (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)]
  7. I am intrigued by the prospect of standalone drive flashing and what else the future could hold for the device
Net-Net:
  • both devices work.
  • the X360USB is going to be faster from a number of clicks perspective b/c, in general, everything's done from JungleFlasher.  Lizard usage requires a bounce or two between the device and TBX.
  • if you're a JungleFlasher guy, the X360USB is for you.
  • if you believe that standalone is coming in the future (nothing to say it isn't) and want to mod drives on the fly without a PC, then the Lizard is for you.
  • did I mention that the Power Drop is my favorite accessory? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
