ALL PHAT AND TRINITY 360 CONSOLES ARE GLITCH ABLE NOW! I RECOMMEND GLITCHING YOUR CONSOLE ASAP AND GETTING THAT CPU KEY AS IT HAS BEEN REPORTED THAT ONCE YOU HAVE THE CPU KEY IT CAN ALWAYS BE GLITCHED NO MATTER WHAT!
Well I did it. It works beautifully!!! I am not sure how to embed the video but I will just put a link of it here for everyone. This video shows me using the Xbox360 on Xbox Live then turning it off and switching to the Cygnos360v2 Rev E nand with the Reset Glitch Hack flashed to it.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UuSxpxwj80
BTW: this is on my Falcon
Here is a guide that I wrote up quickly on how I did it:
This Guide will help you with installing and flashing the Cygnos360v2 Rev E for the reset Glitch. This mod will allow you to use your 360 with Xbox Live and be able to switch over to homebrew as well all on the same console. All consoles are supported for this except Xenon release consoles.
You will need the Rev E version so you can dual boot. This will also work on the Slim as well. I will post a pic with the Alt solder points as well except that you will not be able to use the quick solder method on the Slim for the Rev E version of Cygnos360v2. You will need to wire it using wires to the alt solder points.
My first recommendation is that you install your Reset Glitch first. Here are some pics of mine installed on my Falcon (Fat360):
And here are some pics of my Kipper2k Glitch board installed in my Xbox360 Slim (Trinity):
I know it looks messy in this pic but it really isn't. my camera is showing too much detail and at that angle it looks strange.
This pic is the bottom of the Slim (Trinity) board:
I changed how I have the extra wire because my Slim would not boot the Glitch due to some kind of interference when I would put the case back together. What I did was unroll the wire and run the looped wire through the big hole on the motherboard and wrap it around the cpu fan. After I did this I was able to put my Slim all the way back together and when I have the onboard tsop48 selected it loads my stock dash without any problems and I can go on xbox live and such. Then when I select my Cygnos360v2 tsop48 chip it loads the glitch. I found that this interference was also causing the stock dash to throw a red light due to the interference and this fixed it as well.
That is my Glitch "CMOD" board that I installed first. I recommend installing it first to get this first part of the hack out of the way. It will be different for a lot of people except for the points on the board for the fat 360s and the Slims. If you need an easy way to program the board I found this tool below to be useful from Soulheaven:http://fileserve.com/file/y4wd5G4
Now we get to installing the Cygnos360v2 Rev E Chip. The Cygnos360v2 rev C, D and E appear to be the safest best to use as they will reset the southbridge info when switching from nand to nand.
I first put a dab of flux and solder on all the points I will be soldering (also known as tinning the points).
Get some flux and put a little on all the points you will be soldering to, after doing this place your Cygnos360v2 Rev E in place for the quick solder points and you dont have to use much solder since you tinned the solder points on the Cygnos360v2 Rev E (I used a 15 watt soldering iron). You do need to solder the "X0", "RB", "VCC" and "GND" points as shown in the pic below. The "X0 point is new to my guide as it was recently brought to my attention that the southbridge was not resetting when switching between the 2 different nands. Thank you to "JeffJ" and "Cory1492" at the Cygnos360 forums that brought this to my attention and helped me to test what will need to be corrected for the southbridge to reset properly. For those that didnt know, if the southbridge doesnt reset when switching nands it is possible some data stored in a hacked smc may load with your Live enabled nand and cause problems and possible ban on Xbox Live. Other dual nand solutions would require you to unplug the Xbox360 when switching nands.
You will also see that I am real big into hot glue to make sure no complications happen so you can see that I hot glued a little of the sides of the Cygnos360v2 Rev E to make sure it does not pull on any of the quick solder points. THE "X4" POINT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE INSTALLED ON THIS SETUP AFTER ALL. CORY1492 BROUGHT THIS TO MY ATTENTION
On the Trinity board (known as the Slim) you will need to do a wire install to these points on this picture below:THE "X4" POINT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE INSTALLED ON THIS SETUP AFTER ALL. CORY1492 BROUGHT THIS TO MY ATTENTION
Thank you "warbeast" from xbox-scene foums for original diagram.
Trinity Board (Slim) Confirmed working by member "Zoneout" and :mufsta" on xbox-scene forumsIf you have an old Cygnos360v1 it will also work on the Slim by installing it like below but remember you have to lift the "CE" leg (pin 9) on the original TSOP (nand) chip with installation and it will not reset the southbridge and may be unsafe for xbox live unless you power cycle for the time being in between switching from nand to nand. Also remember that the Cygnos360v1 does not have a programmer with it so you would still have to use a SPI Programmer or the Infectious to program your nands with this version.
Diagram of installing Cygnos360v1 is below:Cygnos360v2 Rev A and B will work as well but will not reset south brigde and have same results as the Cygnos360v1 and other dual nand methods so it would need to be power cycled between instances of switching from nand to nand.
here is a install done in a Slim by "mufsta" on the xbox-scene forums:If you want the Glitch board to turn off when you turn the Cygnos360v2 nand off then you will need to use a relay as shown in the pic below, this was optional but is necessary now for it to work properly after dash update 14717. here is how to install a relay with this setup:</strong>
Here is how I installed mine in my MW3 Slim Trinity Board:
Once these are soldered on you will need to connect the flat cable that has the switch and mini usb port. You will now need to get some electrical tape and tape off the Cygnos360v2 Rev E and make sure it is insulated from the metal cage when you put it back together.
Now you will need to get things ready for the Dual Nand setup and the Glitch. First connect your Micro USB cable to your PC and install the drivers located here at the cygnos360.com website. Now open "Cygnos360 V2 Toolbox 1.10 beta5" and make sure you have the switch off on the Cygnos360v2 Rev E and do a few of nand dumps to make sure you have a good copy of your original nand.
Now for this next part you will have to prepare a full nand image with the new Reset Glitch Hack already implemented into it because the Cygnos360 v2 Toolbox does not have this feature yet to flash the ecc file to the nand.
you will need to make your ecc Glitch Hack File first and this can be done using this:File name: 360_Multi_Builder_v0.921.rar File size: 46.38 MB
(check my site http://www.heavenlymodz.com
for more details on ecc image creation)
After you have made this file you will need to place Nandpro v2.0e and all the files created (in the ouput folder) from the Reset Hack Glitch package above in the same folder with your <strong>copy</strong> of your nand image (important because we will be writing direct to the image).
Now you will need to open command prompt and navigate to the folder will all these files and type the command "nandpro nand.bin: +w16 image_00000000.ecc", the "nand.bin" being the name of your nand file in this directory.
Once it is complete you will need to open "Cygnos360 V2 Toolbox 1.10 beta5" and make sure the Cygnos360v2 Rev E is on the tsop you want to flash the hacked image to. Now program the nand image you just wrote the ecc file to the Cygnos360v2 Rev E.
At this point after the flash is complete you should be able to turn the the 360 back on with the switch off and it will have your normal startup of the Xbox360 unmodified dash. Then turn the 360 off and switch the Cygnos360v2 Rev E back on with the blue light lit and then turn the 360 back on. If the Glitch board is installed correctly and working then you should be greeted with the "Xell-Reloaded" screen within 2 minutes (mine never takes that long, usually within 5 seconds) and it will show you your CPU key and DVD Key. At this point put everything back together and make it pretty when you mount the switch. Of course it will be oposite if you flashed the hacked image to the original tsop and the stock dash to the cygnos360v2 tsop.
Here is how I have my switch mounted in my fat 360 and what it looks like:
And here is what it looks like on mustfas Xbox360 Slim when he mounted his switch:
If you want to make sure you are always safe now from being banned you can change the KV on your Cygnos360v2 so that the console information is completely different to Microsoft and safe from your real KV being banned. Guide to do so is here: Create another Nand image with a different keyvault to prevent banning on Xbox Live
