    xenon RGH released

    If you weren't already aware, TX has released the Xenon RGH which allows Xenon boards to be glitched. Be aware that it's a poor glitcher in general and at their advice for the moment is only really useful for lost key retrieval.

    Wiring

    Generate your ecc image using the latest version of J-Runner and flash to your NAND (+w16 just like a regular RGH).

    Program your TX CoolRunner (or whatever flavor RGH mod you are using) with the tx-xenon.xsvf or tx-xenon.jed file.

    The Xenon has a capacitor on CPU_RST that was removed in later models. C7R112 (located near the xclamp under the CPU) must be de-soldered, and the CPU_RST wire from the TX CoolRunner(D) must be soldered to the left pad (non grounded pad).

    A 47nf ( 0.047uf) capacitor needs to be added between PLL_BYPASS(+) and GND(-). (If you have a genuine TX CoolRunner REV B you can use the on-board by bridging the CAP jumper)

    A 220-270pf capacitor should be added between CPU_RST(+) and GND(-) on the cpld. (If you have a genuine TX CoolRunner REV B this is already included in the design so not required)

    An easy to follow picture guide can be found here: http://www.team-xecuter.com/coolrunn...phat_xenon.jpg

    Troubleshooting

    Using a TX CoolRunner Rev B, and after applying various troubleshooting measures we have had glitches ranging from instant to 20 minutes.

    The debug LED should flash on for less than a second and repeat every 5 seconds. If your LED stays on or does not come on at all, it is usually because of something being wrong with PLL_BYPASS. Try different values of capacitors and wires. If you have enabled the CAP on REV B of the TX CoolRunner, simply un-bridge it and try a 47nF cap instead as per the instructions above.

    If it still has not glitched after several hours, try different values of capacitors on CPU_RST of your RGH mod. A longer wire / low-loss 50 ohm double shielded cable may also help with this.

    To help increase boot times and stability (on all RGH installs not just Xenon) we recommend that you try Low-Loss Double Shielded 50 ohm cable. It's very cheap to use and quite effective so a quick shout out to XCONSOLES - Kick Ass Video Game Mods, Repair Kits and Accessories who supplied a batch of high quality cable for our development team to use. It's less than 75 cents a foot not bad.

    NOTE: Remember when programming the TX CoolRunner that the Xbox power is NOT connected and that the switch is set to PRG before you connect the JTAG cable. If you connect the JTAG cable and it is set to NOR with the Xbox power connected, it can damage your NAND-X and/or CoolRunner. When you have finished programming, switch it back to NOR and then power on the Xbox.

    The Xenon Hack

    Please note that this hack is not available on consoles updated to dashboards 14717 or 14719.

    If you are seeing the debug led it means that the cpu is probably not crashing and the issue addressed by gligli/tiros has been fixed (This can of course be a false positive as sometimes the CPU could be crashing but the SMC restarts fine we can never be 100% sure)

    So far, this is really only useful for a one time cpu_key dump. There will undoubtedly be ways of optimizing this hack in the future and who knows, it may become a reliable glitch one day.

    We would appreciate that you give as much feedback to our support forums as possible to help others achieve better results and to improve this method. For now we can leave this and go back to RGH2.0 for Zephyr, Falcon, Jasper and also of course, the Corona.

    Good news for me if I ever decide to RGH, but that would only be if I got XBL banned tbh.
    You can find the answer to any flashing question HERE and on the rare occasion that you can't it will definately be HERE

    I might give this a whirl since I f**ked up the PLL_BYPASS last time on a Falcon! lol. Might be a ppor glitcher but it'll be good practice. Is there a ratio of glitching for the Xenon?

    1 - I ain't got a Xenon yet lol.
    2 - What happens if I f**k it up again? Lol. Originally it was perfect soldering! But cleaning the flux I broke the solder so I tried to reattach it and then moved a capacitor beside it. Then I pulled it off. Lol.

    I've got about 8 Xenons stacked up, all in need of a Reball though - does anyone know if Xell will still boot even if GPU is shafted? I doubt it but I vaguely remember reading somewhere that it will, if so then I'll give it a whirl when I have a moment and feedback results.

    Good news for me if I ever decide to RGH, but that would only be if I got XBL banned tbh.
    You'll be need a DemoN to complete your life!

    @ YoshiB1 - to be honest mate I don't think a Xenon would be a good model to practice with, given it has a piss poor reputation for glitching in the first place it will be hard for you to determine whether it's not glitching because of a bad install, or just because it's shit at glitching, thus not helping you with your install technique, get to grips with a Falcon to begin with then hone your skills elsewhere imo.

    This is awesome i have a old Xenon a buddy gave me for spare parts after a RRoD, well i fixed the RRoD to come and find out the drive in the console is flashed with the wrong key and he does not have the original, so its been sitting in the closet waiting for someone to come up with a way to retrieve the correct key from the Mobo.

    The hi-grade 50ohm double shielded low-loss cable is the what will save you from shitty boot time!



    On a side note, if you want to improve your boot times you can use Hi-Grade 50ohm Double Shielded Low-Loss Cable. When used with the SLIM POST QSB we found some testers console times and stability were increased dramatically. At only $1-$2 a foot, it's worth giving a try. We also suggest you try switching to phat <> slim on your CoolRunner to see if your times and stability are improved. Some Phats like being switched to Slim and vice-verse, every console is different so these tips should help you find your sweet spot. - Team Executer.

    That's what I'm doing too, trying to get a key for a drive. It's a xenon board, so if I get it working I'll let ya know! If you get it working let me know?

    I'm still waiting on parts to be delivered, in the mean time I'm planning out how to mod the case on this beast too figured since it's gonna be a practice box, might as well pimp it out!

    Yes, it will!
