How to hack/RHG your Xbox 360

If you want to hack your Xbox 360 and your dashboard version is over 7371 then the only way that you can hack it is with the reset glitch hack (RGH). When I started looking for a way to hack my 360 I heard about the jtag method only to find out that my dashboard was newer then 7371, but in early September a hardware exploit was developed know as the RGH. Basically what the RGH does is send a single to the processor that tells it to reset. Usually it would do exactly that however if the single is sent when it is booting up it allows us to run unsigned code.

to perform this RGH and utilize the exploit what you will need to do is read the NAND, install the modchip, write the NAND and installing your dash board of choice (i will be using xexmenu).

To do this you will need:

modchip (i will be using the coolrunner from team-xecuter)

coolrunner LPT program cable

male LPT port (printer cable) (x1)

wires (x12 this will be your LPT cable so make them long)

computer with a female LPT port

a program to read the NAND (i used nandprob 2 you can find it HERE)

soldering iron

solder

Jtag tool (software)

360gcprog (software)

flux (not needed but HIGHLY recommended)

***Disclaimer: I am not liable for any damage that may be caused to your property or self from following the instructions in this tutorial. Soldering irons can be very hot and cause burns, as well as possibly break your Xbox 360. Opening your xbox 360's shell will void its warranty. *** 
 
now then lets get started. first you need to completely take apart you 360 there are plenty of guides to do that so i wont cover it here. When the case is removed it should look like the picture. i highly suggest that you take off the metal case it sits in so that you can access the bottom of the motherboard.

I was reading xexmenu is up to 1.5, is that correct? Where can I get it?

If your computer doesn't have an LPT port, is it possible to connect it using an adapter of some sort?

What if I have one nonmatching block... Is that ok?
Superben51 (author)  devilsteps1 year ago
Dump again, then compare them. If there is still an error dump one more time and compare. Depending on the address the block is at it might be okay to continue but I would STRONGLY advise against it because if you don't get a good dump then if something goes wrong (which is very possible with non matching nands, if the error in the wrong sector) you don't have a stock nand to flash back and lose your xbox. If however you want to continue then look into using J-runner for making the ECC image.

i deleted my nands from the nand step... should i just get 2 new one?
Superben51 (author)  devilsteps1 year ago
Yes. It's vital to have at least one good NAND dump permenatly backed up in case something goes wrong. You'll also write a modified version of your own NAND back to the xbox, so it is super important to have and keep a NAND dump handy.

this step still doesnt work for me... even though i name the file with .svf at the end the program still says that it is not a correct svf file...

i have a zephyr, but when i open the file for the zephyr a page comes up with a bunch of symboles... how do download this?
Superben51 (author)  devilsteps1 year ago
If you right click and press open in a new tab, a window will pop up asking what you want to do. Click the option for save file and then press okay.
so i got the file, but it is a firefox file... how do i make it svf file
nevermind i got it :D

Which way do we face the resistors ? Thanks
Superben51 (author)  angel_65711 year ago
The resistors are non polar, meaning that it doesn't matter which way they are.

Are you sure this works? i have seen many people say that you need to have the diode in there on pin 11???
Superben51 (author)  Aaamazzara1 year ago
I know that it worked 100% for me. However if you are feeling worried about it (something about computer voltage-back or something) just throw it in there.

Im having a problem with this part of it. I dont know what schematic to use. I am trying to program my coolrunner, im planning on going with the first picture but i dont understand what you mean by dont use the power. Then what do i do?
Superben51 (author)  Aaamazzara1 year ago
What I mean is don't use the batteries. The LPT port on your computer will supply the power needed if you leave out the batteries.

Can you do this with the new xbox 360 slim??
Superben51 (author)  awesome88892 years ago
yes but you need to have a trinity motherboard. and the solder points are different i'll try and update the guide soon.

So with this method we dont need to buy a nand pro?
Superben51 (author)  Aaamazzara2 years ago
yup i only bought the cool runner the rest i had kicking around
