    Reset Glitch Hack Guide using TX Coolrunner

    Guide for installing the Reset Glitch Hack using a Team Xecuter Coolrunner

    This is a start-to-finish guide on installing the Reset Glitch Hack with a TX Coolrunner resulting in a hacked dash on your Xbox 360 or to retrieve a lost DVD key. Consoles with this can't connect to Live anymore. (Banning will occur before profile sign-in finishes, so it's foolish to try.)

    It features Team Xecuter products because that's what I use. It can also be applied to non-TX products. It includes links to many other guides and tutorials for specific steps. Not every bit of external info applies to one step or it may apply to more. Use only what's applicable for that specific step. This guide covers both RGH1 and RGH2. If possible, use RGH1 on PHATs as glitch times are quicker. (SLIMs have always used RGH2.) It's compatible with Windows XP, 7, and 8.

    It doesn't show proper soldering/flux/iron tools or techniques or indicate file/folder locations for downloaded files/programs. If that's too confusing, don't attempt this hack.

    A few things to know before getting started:

    • RGH1 is for all PHATs on dash 14699 or lower, it's not useful for anything other than DVD key retieval on Xenon
    • RGH2 is for all PHATs on a dash higher than 14699, except Xenon, and all SLIMs on any dash
    • It can be installed on the console's current dash - no need to update


    Determine your motherboard type
    Reset Glitch Hack Guide using TX Coolrunner-mb-id.jpg

    PHAT

    Zephyr, Falcon, and Jasper have HDMI ports.

    SLIM
    Trinity uses 10.83A, and Corona uses 9.86A (printed above the A/V ports.)

    DASH VERSIONS ABOVE 14699 BLOCK RGH1 ON ALL PHAT CONSOLES! DO NOT UPDATE PHATS ABOVE 14699 IF YOU WANT FASTER GLITCH TIMES.

    Hardware required:

    • TX Nand-X shown HERE or J-R Programmer shown HERE (read/write Nand flash chip & program CR)
    • TX Coolrunner 3 Pro, 3 Lite, or Rev C shown HERE (TX's RGH Board, includes wires for PHAT/SLIM install)
    • TX QSB's shown here PHAT,SLIM or direct-solder Nand-X cable shown HERE, (RGH Edition includes QSB's, all editons include wires; for DVD key retrieval, wires are recommend for easier removal)
    • TX Nand-X to Coolrunner JTAG cable shown HERE (included in RGH Edition, J-R Programmer includes it's own, JTAG cable isn't required for CR3 Pro)
    • Corona requires CR 3 Pro, 3 Lite shown HERE, or DGX/RGX OR CR rev C and TX CORONA QSB Upgrade shown HERE
    • Corona 4GB (v2,v4) requires an SD RW Kit shown HERE to read/write Nand instead of Nand-X
    • Corona v3,v4 (and some Corona v2) requires a POSTFIX adapter required shownHERE because they are missing POST_OUT
    • NOTE: A Nand-X or J-R Programmer isn't required to read/write a Corona 4GB Nand. So to program the Coolrunner and still save money, a TX Xilinx LPT JTAG Cable shown HERE can be used instead. An LPT port on your PC, a CK3 to supply power to the CR, and additional software are required.
    • There are value bundles available that include some of the items above.


    There have been many changes to RGH since I first wrote this guide. It's still the most comprehensive one around. Only the Coolrunner and install has changed a bit - not the steps involved. Before starting this hack, ensure you have the proper hardware for your console including all necessary wires, connectors, and/or QSBs.

    Coolrunner compatibility:

    • PHAT: All CR rev A,B,C; CR3 Lite
    • Trinity: All CR's; CR3's and RGX recommended
    • Corona: CR3's and RGX required


    CR3 refers to both Lite and Pro versions unless noted. RGX refers to DGX boards (double glitch Xbox) converted to RGX (regular glitch Xbox) - DGX is now obsolete. Trinity and Corona v1,v2 can take advantage of the CR3 Pro Rater feature to get "instant" glitches at least 50% of the time.

    Software required:

    J-Runner core pack HERE, (requires .NET version 4, doesn't support LPT connections), download J-Runner dash packs HERE if the daily download limit is reached

    Optional software:
    360 Flash Dump Tool HERE
    AutoGG HERE (similar to J-Runner; supports LPT connections)
    Nandpro v3.0a HERE

    All cable connecters are keyed, meaning they only plug in one way. Any connecters that feel forced, are being plugged in the wrong way.

    Before dumping/flashing or turning things on, use a multimeter to test all solder points for continuity and ensure no bridging occurs between adjacent points. This prevents frustration later on. If your soldering skills aren't decent, watch this excellent soldering educational video HERE.

    1. Installing the QSB's or Nand-X cable (and drivers)


    Dissassamble the console completely (heat sink removal is optional unless installing a POSTFIX Adapter.) There are plenty of guides/videos around.

    Nand-X QSB Install
    The Nand-X RGH Edition includes all QSB's for PHAT and SLIM Trinity, Corona not included.
    QSB installation guides: PHAT, SLIM (QSB may be slightly different than pictured)

    Nand-X Wire Install
    The Nand-X Standalone Version includes a wire harness. The RGH Edition and original Nand-X V3 Complete Kit include a pin header cable which can be cut and stripped for soldering directly to the motherboard. (It's difficult for a beginner to install the pin header so don't bother.)

    Here are the Nand-X wire solder points. J2C3 on a Corona is turned 90 degrees clockwise.
    Reset Glitch Hack Guide using TX Coolrunner-nandx_wires_phat.jpg Reset Glitch Hack Guide using TX Coolrunner-nandx_wires-slim.jpg
    For further help, refer to the Nand-X installation guide HERE or diagrams included in J-Runner.

    Install Nand-X/J-R Programmer Windows Driver
    Download driver HERE. The same driver works for both devices. Driver install guide HERE. Driver folder name will be different. If for any reason the driver install fails, follow the instructions for removing old driver files and retry the install.

    Windows 8 Users
    Install the generic libUSB drivers. Instructions and drivers HERE. These should work for the J-R Programmer as well since the official drivers are based on these. Driver signing enforcement doesn't need to be disabled and they provide the same performance.

    Corona 4GB
    Corona 4GB Nand RW Kit install - pretty straight forward.
    Reset Glitch Hack Guide using TX Coolrunner-cor4gbkit.jpg
    *A Nand-X or J-R Programmer isn't needed to read/write 4GB Nands.

    2. Reading (dumping) the Nand image, and checking the CB version

    DO NOT UPDATE THE DASH BEFORE DUMPING THE NAND. ANY DASH VERSION OF FREEBOOT CAN BE FLASHED LATER.

    Reading and saving the Nand
    Connect the Nand-X (or J-R Programmer) to the Xbox 360 motherboard (it should still be connected after installing the Nand-X drivers.) Plug in the power cable but do not power on the motherboard or the Nand-X can be damaged.

    Start J-Runner and update it if needed. I always make 4 Nand dumps so change the 2 to a 4 and click 'Read Nand'. It should automatically detect the motherboard type and start dumping the Nand as many times as indicated. (Make a note of the motherboard type for later.)
    Reset Glitch Hack Guide using TX Coolrunner-jr1read.jpg

    It takes just over 2 minutes to dump a 16MB Nand with a Nand-X. The Nand dumps are auto-saved in the \J-Runner\output\ folder as nanddump1.bin, nanddump2.bin, etc. J-Runner will auto-compare the first 2 dumps, so manually load and compare dumps 2 to 3, 3 to 4, etc to verify they all match.
    Reset Glitch Hack Guide using TX Coolrunner-jr2comp.jpg
    Disconnect the Xbox 360 power cable.

    Checking the CB version (only applies to PHAT consoles)
    Reset Glitch Hack Guide using TX Coolrunner-jr3cb.jpg
    Check the number in the 2BL [CB] field. The CB needs to be one of the following to use RGH1.

    Zephyr: 4578, 4579
    Falcon and Opus: 5771
    Jasper: 6750, 6751

    If the CB is not listed above, RGH2 must be used. There currently isn't any specific info on which Xenon CBs are glitchable, so assume it is. Dash 14717 and above must use RGH2 wiring regardless of CB.

    Corona 4GB
    Console power must be connected before plugging the SD Adapter into a card reader. Read/write problems are most likely card reader incompatibility (assuming your soldering is solid.) Solution: better card reader. The menu for Corona 4GB reading/writing is under 'Advanced' in J-Runner. Make sure the correct drive is highlighted before reading.

    3. Programming and installing the TX Coolrunner

    DON'T ATTEMPT TO PROGRAM A CR3 PRO - THEY'RE ALREADY PRE-PROGRAMMED!
    (Doesn't apply to CR3 Lite and RGX)

    Program the TX Coolrunner
    Disconnect the Nand-X from the Xbox 360 and connect it to the Coolrunner using the Coolrunner JTAG cable. Make sure the PHAT/SLIM switch is set to the proper console type and the NOR/PROG switch is on PROG.
    Reset Glitch Hack Guide using TX Coolrunner-nor_prog.jpg

    The Coolrunner side of the cable should be connected with the metal contacts facing down as seen in the following picture. The red (PWR) and green (DBG) LEDs on the Coolrunner should be lit up.
    Reset Glitch Hack Guide using TX Coolrunner-crblank.jpg

    Use J-Runner to program the Coolrunner by clicking 'Flash Coolrunner'. (Choose the correct motherboard type if needed.)
    Reset Glitch Hack Guide using TX Coolrunner-jr4flcr.jpg

    After it's programmed, the green light will go out. From now on, if the Coolrunner needs re-programming, the green LED will only light up when files are being written to it.
    Reset Glitch Hack Guide using TX Coolrunner-crprgrmd.jpg

    *During Coolrunner re-programming, always ensure the Xbox 360 power cable is disconnected or it will damage the Nand-X.

    Instructions for DGX to RGX conversion programming are included HERE.

    Install the Coolrunner to the Xbox 360

    • CR rev C PHAT wired install HERE
    • CR rev C SLIM wired install HERE
    • CR3 Lite: use CR rev C diagrams, jumper settings HERE
    • RGX wired install HERE
    • QSB install for all the above: use wired guide and match the following points from CR to QSB:
      • Red to 3.3v - all installs on all consoles
      • Orange to B - all installs on PHAT and Trinity
      • Green to E, Brown to F - all RGH2 installs

    • CR3 Pro wired and QSB install HERE
    • Corona 4GB CR3 Lite install HERE
    • Xenon Coolrunner install HERE


    For PHAT consoles, except Falcon, it's recommended to swap the blue CPU_RST wire with a 9" - 12" inch Hi-Grade Low-Loss 50 ohm double shielded coax cable. For examples of how to install it, see the thread HERE. CR rev C include this cable. This may or may not improve glitch times - every console is different. It may also improve SLIM glitch times.

    4. Building and flashing the .ecc file (Xell Reloaded) and obtaining the CPU key

    Build the .ecc file (no longer needed for RGH since .ecc files are included in J-Runner - it's grayed out anyway)
    Create the ecc file by clicking 'Create ECC'. The .ecc file is saved as 'image_00000000.ecc' in the \J-Runner\output\ folder.
    Reset Glitch Hack Guide using TX Coolrunner-jr5crecc.jpg

    Flash the .ecc file

    Connect the Nand-X to the motherboard and then the Xbox 360 power cable. Click 'Flash ECC'. (Choose the correct motherboard type if needed.)
    Reset Glitch Hack Guide using TX Coolrunner-jr6wrecc.jpg

    Corona 4GB
    J-Runner should bring up the Corona 4GB sub-menu and write the .ecc file. If not, manually do it.

    Boot Xell
    Disconnect the power cable and Nand-X from the motherboard. Wait 30 seconds and connect the power, A/V or HDMI cable, and optionally a LAN cable to your network. Turn the console back on. The green LED on the Coolrunner should flash approximately once every 5 - 7 seconds until it successfully glitches. Xell Reloaded should boot and extract the CPU key.
    Reset Glitch Hack Guide using TX Coolrunner-xellreloaded.jpg
    If this is what shows up, then the first hurdle is over. If not, then re-check hardware/soldering and procedures.

    Obtain the CPU key
    The CPU key is derived from putting the 16 digits from fuseset 3 or 4 and the 16 digits from fuseset 5 or 6 together.
    Reset Glitch Hack Guide using TX Coolrunner-cpukey.jpg

    Take a picture of it, manually copy it, or better yet, copy the IP address from the bottom of the screen and input it into J-Runner, then click on 'Get CPU Key' (or click on 'Scan IP Range'). The decrypted KV info is revealed once the CPU key is entered.
    Reset Glitch Hack Guide using TX Coolrunner-jr7getcpu.jpg
    J-Runner will automatically transfer all the files from \J-Runner\output\ to a new \J-Runner\<ConsoleSerial#>\ folder.

    If Xell doesn't show up
    Xell should show now on all consoles. If it doesn't, There are a few ways around this to obtain your CPU key:

    • Connect a LAN cable between the motherboard and your network router. When the green light on the Coolrunner stops flashing, wait 1 - 2 minutes and then click 'Scan IP Range'.
    • If, after a few minutes, it's not detected, check your router's DHCP client list for a new IP Lease. This should be the console's IP address. Enter it in the 'Xbox IP' box and click 'Get CPU Key'.
    • Use a COM cable with the Monitor COM function in J-Runner. J-Runner includes diagrams to make one and where to solder it.


    *Coolrunner removal if RGH was used only for DVD key retrieval*

    If RGH was only used to obtain the DVD key, it can be found in the \J-Runner\<ConsoleSerial#>\Fuses.txt file. After obtaining the DVD key, connect the Nand-X and console power, load up an original nanddump.bin file into 'Source File', and flash it to the Nand by clicking 'Write Nand' (this is the only way to remove Xell.) Remove power, Nand-X, Coolrunner, and wires. Removing any QSB's can easily cause damage that bricks the console (we're talking no power bricking) if you've never desoldered before. So leave them installed. They're designed to stay once installed anyway. Transfer the newly obtained DVD key to a replacement drive's firmware and enjoy a fully functioning retail console.

    5. Building and flashing Freeboot (hacked dash)


    ANY HACKED DASH VERSION CAN BE USED REGARDLESS OF THE THE VERSION OF THE RETAIL DASH!

    Build the Freeboot image

    If J-Runner doesn't allow the latest version of FreeBOOT to be selected, it needs to be downloaded. Click on the 'Dash Version' drop down menu, select 'Add Dash', and choose the dash version of FreeBoot you need.
    Reset Glitch Hack Guide using TX Coolrunner-jr8adddash.jpg

    Click on the 'Dash Version' drop down menu again and select the dash version being built. Click on 'Create Image' to build FreeBOOT. (Choose the correct motherboard type if needed.)
    Reset Glitch Hack Guide using TX Coolrunner-jr9crfb.jpg

    Flashing FreeBOOT

    This can be done one of 2 ways.

    1. If the Xbox 360 still has Xell Reloaded running, copy the file 'updflash.bin' from \J-Runner\<ConsoleSerial#>\ to the root of a FAT32 formatted USB flash drive. Then plug it into the console and FreeBOOT will be flashed automatically to the Nand. This is the quickest and recommended method.

    2. Turn off the console. Unplug the power, connect the Nand-X, reconnect power, and click 'Write Nand'.
    Reset Glitch Hack Guide using TX Coolrunner-jrwrnand.jpg

    Disconnect the Nand-X and power from the console and wait for 30 seconds. Plug the power back in and turn on the console. The green LED on the Coolrunner should flash again every 5 seconds until it glitches. This time, it should boot to the regular dash and look the same as it did before the hack. Leave the Coolrunner installed as it's now required every time the console boots, and put everything back together.

    Corona 4GB
    Click 'Write Nand' and J-Runner should bring up the Corona 4GB sub-menu and write the FreeBOOT image. If not, manually do it.

    If everything went as planned, congratulations on your newly hacked console.

    Troubleshooting tips and misc:

    Console won't glitch

    RGH1

    Xenon: Good Luck! Really nothing more to say.
    Zephyr: Hit or miss. If it doesn't boot within 10 - 15 seconds, cycle the power switch.
    Falcon: You did something wrong! Should boot on first glitch cycle every time.
    Jasper: 50 Ohm shielded cable can make a huge difference, try grounded and ungrounded.

    RGH2
    Xenon: Not compatible
    Zephyr: Worse than RGH1
    Falcon: Glitch times from 5 seconds to 5 minutes, may not glitch at all, try A,B,C,D timing files; I have an RGH2 Falcon that typically glitches within 90 seconds, but if booted from the Guide button on a wired controller, will glitch within 10 seconds consistently.
    Jasper: Glitch times from 5 seconds to 5 minutes, should be able to tune it to within 90 seconds or less.
    Trinity:
    Glitch times from 5 seconds to 5 minutes, should be able to tune it within 90 seconds or less. CR3 Pro tuned with Rater feature should give 5 - 30 second boot times (most times 5 seconds).
    Corona v1, v2:
    Glitch times from 5 seconds to 5 minutes, should be able to tune it to within 90 seconds or less. CR3 Pro tuned with Rater feature should give 5 - 30 second boot times (most times 5 seconds).
    Corona v3, v4: Glitch times from 5 seconds to 5 minutes, should be able to tune it to within 90 seconds or less. CR3 Pro Rater feature not compatible due to missing POST_OUT.
    There are multiple RGH2 timing files, try all of them to find which ones glitch (give plenty of time). Out of those, use the one that gives the best glitch time, then start fine tuning.

    There are many posts, mostly on TX forums, on what wire length/capacitor/resistor combos have worked for specific Coolrunner/motherboard combos. If you're lost on where to start, just ask, but be prepared to post pictures of your soldering. Too many times I've seen someone say, "My soldering is fine," and it looks as if they used a blow torch instead of a soldering iron. More ofter than not, poor solding is at fault.

    On some consoles, changing the PHAT/SLIM switch can help.
    It can take up to 24 hours for a Xenon to glitch and boot Xell - have patience.
    Putting the console back together can change boot times, or pugging in a hard drive, for better or worse.
    THIS IS A GLITCH AND THEREFORE THE SETTINGS AND HARDWARE CONFIG ARE DIFFERENT FOR EVERY CONSOLE. THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE OF RGH2 - IT'S NOT AS CONSISTENT AS RGH1.


    Bad Blocks in the .ecc file (first 50 blocks)
    J-Runner should correctly remap any bad blocks in the first 50 region. But if for some reason it doesn't, the console won't boot to Xell and they'll have to be remapped. Open an original Nand dump in J-Runner (or 360 Flash Dump Tool). The Bad Block tab on the right side will indicate which block(s) and where it's remapped to.

    Reset Glitch Hack Guide using TX Coolrunner-jr11badblock.png Reset Glitch Hack Guide using TX Coolrunner-badblock.png
    A guide to manually remapping the first 50 blocks can be found HERE.

    Jtag Tool 4.25
    Coolshrimp's Jtag Tool isn't available anymore from him, so get it
    HERE. It's still very useful if you're using an LPT cable to read/write to the Nand. J-Runner doesn't support LPT connections (obviously TX wants you to buy their Nand flasher). It doesn't need to be installed; just extract to wherever you want and it's ready to run.

    When started, it may try to connect to a non-existent server and lock up. To prevent this, you'll need to disconnect your internet connection, or block the outgoing connection with a firewall that blocks connections by application. There are many; my personal favorite is LooknStop if all you want is control over outgoing network connections.

    Windows 7 firewall permits all outgoing connections by default, but it's rather easy to block Jtag Tool.

    Control Panel>System and Security>Windows Firewall>Advanced Settings>Outbound Rules>New Rule
    Choose the 'Program' type rule (Click Next)
    Click 'Browse' and select the path to where 'Jtag Tool.exe' was extracted to (Click Next)
    Select 'Block This Connection' (Click Next)
    Ensure all 3 zones are checked (Click Next)
    Name the rule (Click Finish)

    Now Jtag Tool is blocked from accessing Coolsh
    rimp's obsolete server.

    *AutoGG can also be used for LPT reading/writing.

    Now that your newly RGH'd console is successfully booting, you're asking yourself, "This looks no damn different than what I had before. I thought this was supposed to allow gaming ecstasy? What am I supposed to do with this?"

    The following should help getting started with a newly RGH'd or Jtag'd console.

    To begin, here are some definitions and explanations of Xbox 360 storage devices and file formats.

    • The Xbox 360 can read 2 types of file formats: FAT32 (universal hard and flash drive format) and FATX (proprietary Xbox drive format) hereinafter referred to as FAT32 and FATX respectively.
    • An internal drive is connected to a SATA port and includes the type that slide inside SLIMs and the type the attach to side/top of PHATs. All the space on the drive is formatted as FATX. The console natively looks for Xbox Content, hereinafter called Content, such as profiles, installed games, DLC, Arcade games, Title Updates, LIVE Apps, Avatar files, Themes, Gamer pics, and System Files on FATX.
    • An external drive is connected to a USB port and includes portable hard drives and flash drives. They are formatted as FAT32 and the console natively looks for videos, music, pictures, and System Updates on FAT32.
    • Up to 32GB of FAT32 on a USB drive can be 'converted' to FATX (System Settings>Storage>Device Options). The console accomplishes this by creating a hidden folder named 'Xbox360' and inside that folder hidden files are created that when added together make a 'virtual partition'. The console sees this as a continuous FATX drive. Since the FATX 'drive' is made up of files, the FAT32 format is unchanged and the drive can continue to be used as a regular USB drive on a PC.
    • FATX drives are commonly said to have partitions. This isn't entirely true. These 'partitions' are main folders programmed to show as 'partitions' in various file managers. System files are in System folders and the Xbox1 Emulator (compatibility files) is in a Compatibility folder.The main folders reside in the root of the drive. Custom folders and sub-folders can be created alongside the main folders. The Xbox1 Emulator will not work unless it's on an internal FATX drive.
    • Almost all Content is contained within the \Content\ folder on a FATX drive. The exception is Title Updates which can reside in the Cache folder. Here are examples:
      • Game Content (install, DLC, Arcade) - \Content\0000000000000000\1A2B3C4D\

    • Data such as game rips, Homebrew, Emulators, and other non-Content can be contained on FAT32 and FATX. The console won't see it on either file system, but 3rd party file managers (Homebrew) can.
    • On a hacked console, any make of drive can be used internally/externally up to 2TB. The console will show all space on an internal FATX drive as available.


    With all that said, let's get started.

    Installing XeXMenu and Freestyle Dash


    First, XeXMenu or Freestyle Dash needs to be installed. It allows FTP to the console, along with directly starting .xex files (360 executables.) You'll need the following:

    • A USB Drive with FATX space (if it's a flash drive, don't use up all the space, leave some FAT32 space)
    • Party Buffalo - download HERE (single executable, virus free, recommend over device explorers like Xtaf, Xplorer360, etc.)

    Download XeXMenu HERE, Freestyle 3 HERE, and F3 quicklaunch shortcut HERE. Extract all.

    Start Party Buffalo with the USB drive connected to the computer. Open the drive.

    Select the Data folder. Copy the contents of the extracted XexMenu and F3 Shortcut folders to the USB drive keeping the same folder/file path.

    Close the USB drive from within Party Buffalo. Copy the Freestyle folder to the root of the USB drive in Windows.
    Make sure default.xex is only one folder level deep, e.g. \Freestlye\default.exe not \Freestyle\Freestyle\default.xex. Connect it to the console. Go into System Settings>Storage and select the USB drive. XeXMenu should show under Demos, and the F3 shortcut should show under Games. If you used an external hard drive then you're done.

    If not, move XeXMenu and the F3 Shortcut to the internal drive. Start XeXMenu (under games) and move the Freestyle folder from the USB drive to the root. Use LB or RB to switch to the file manager, then use D-left or D-right to toggle between storage devices, hit 'Y' to bring up the copy/move menu.

    Freestyle 3 can now be started from games>My Games on the regular dash.
    Now you'll be able to put files on your console easily by file copy or FTP. You probably won't use XeXMenu much, but it's excellent for deleting any F3 database files that get corrupted and can't be deleted while F3 is running.

    Installing Dashlaunch
    If you didn't include the Dashlaunch patches during the FreeBOOT image build or want to change options, you'll need this. (It's pretty much a required set of patches these days.)

    Download Dashlaunch 3.07
    HERE. Instructions on how to use it are included. Put the Installer folder on any storage device (FAT32 or FATX) and start default.xex from XeXMenu or F3.

    Optional Media Update
    The latest Optional Media Update files can be found
    HERE.
    Extract or copy them to the correct folder on your HDD or an Xbox formatted USB drive (no FAT32 USB drives).

    Xbox1 Emulator (Compatibility Update)
    Download it
    HERE. The package already has the hacked Xbox1 Compatibility files integrated.
    Delete any 'Compatibility' folders (and their contents) in the drive root or HDDX folder or you may have issues (HDDX is hidden unless you change it in F3's settings. Install instructions are in the README file included in the download.

    Multi-Disc Games
    FSD
    allows you to play multi-disc games without changing discs. You can either rip the discs, FTP the files, or install them as GOD.

    Discs ripped within FSD or FTP'd to the console need to be in their own folder. For example, L.A. Noire should be installed like this:

    HDD\360Games\LA Noire\Disc 1\
    HDD\360Games\LA Noire\Disc 2\
    HDD\360Games\LA Noire\Disc 3\

    or

    HDD\360Games\LA Noire Disc 1\
    HDD\360Games\LA Noire Disc 2\
    HDD\360Games\LA Noire Disc 3\

    What you'll want to do is follow the guide up to Step 6 and flash the .ecc file to the Nand. Then you can retrieve the CPU and DVD keys. At this point you should also be able to verify in 360 Flash Dump Tool what type of replacement drive you need to get.

    After that, unsolder either the red (3.3v) or black (ground) wire from either end so the Coolrunner won't power up when the 360 is turned on to update the dash.

    Don't turn the console back on just yet. Flash one of the original Nand.bin dumps you made back to the Nand so the console is back to normal. Then update the console to dash 13604. Discard the Nand.bin dumps and .ecc you made as you won't need them anymore and to prevent from mixing them up with the new files you'll make (which could lead to a CPU LDV value mismatch.)

    Dump the Nand again creating new Nand.bin dumps and re-solder whichever cable (red or black) back to the Coolrunner. Resume following the guide at step 6 and re-create the .ecc file. Then follow the rest of the guide.


    UPDATE: J-Runner now supports using any dash version to build the latest hacked dash. I still recommend updating to the dash outlined in my guide to prevent any mishaps with the LDV.

    Awesome guide! Thanks! Just one thing, there are two typo's:

    "DON'T UPDATE A PHAT CONSOLE ABOVE DASH VERSION 13406!" -> should be 13604. Only mistyped in the warnings. Guide's is correct.
