This Tutorial explains how to hack your Xbox 360 with the Reset Glitch Hack of GliGli and Tiros in order to launch unsigned code.


I: Preamble :

   A: Compatible console revisions :



? Opus

? Zephyr

? Falcon

? Jasper


? Slim

? Trinity


   B: Exceptions


? FAT with split CB:

Some xbox Fat have a split CB (NAND contains CB_A and CB_B instead of CB_A only) they CAN'T be glitched at this time of writing.

? Zephyr  CB 4577

? Falcon CB 5772

? Jasper CB 6752


? Slim with Corona motherboard




How to recognize it:

? There is no HANA chip

HANA chip


?On the backside of the case you can see an Amperage of 9.86A (Some trinity have that too but must of the console with 9.86A written are corona).

III: Hacking the XBOX

   A: NAND Dump

Step 1 : Use the following diagram to solder your USB SPI Programmert








If you have a NAND-X you can find the diagram HERE


Step 2 : Open windows' command prompt and launch NandPro.


Étape 3 : Dump your NAND twice by using the read command :


?  If you have a 16 mo nand


nandpro usb : -r16 nanddumpaname.bin


?  If you have a 256/512 mo nand


nandpro usb : -r64 nanddumpaname.bin



Step 3 : Compare the two dumps with the following command (you can use MD5 Checksums too) :


fc /b  nanddumpname.bin nanddumpname2.bin 



You should see something like FC : No difference found. If the two dumps don't match, do a new dump and check again.


B: Installation de Python et Python Crypto 


NB : The part B et C can be done with GUI Apps like BestPig ToolBox or 360 Mutlibuilder, but in this tutorial we will explain the former method.


Step 1 : Install Python 2.7 (32bit!) and PyCrypto 2.3 with the default settings :


Step 2 : Go in Control Panel > System > Advanced system settings



Step 3 : Click on environnement variables




Step 4 : Click on New in system variable



Step 5 : Add this for the name and the value of the variable :


%PYTHONPATH%;C:\Python27 ;



C: Creating the ECC image :


Step 1 : Download  this archive and uncompress.


Step 2 : Put your original NAND dump in the root of the gggggg-folder and create a folder named "ouput" (in the root aswell).



The Step 3 and 4 arent' necessary for slim console.


Step 3 : In the common/imguild folder, do a right clik on the build.py, and open with it IDLE..



Step 4 : Then add the 1BL like that : :





Step 5 : Open windows' command prompt again and navigate to the hack folder, then type this python command (don't forget to modify it with your NAND dump name) :




python common/imgbuild/build.py nanddumpname.bin common/cdxell/CD common/xell/xell-gggggg.bin


? Command for JASPER :


python common/imgbuild/build.py nanddumpname.bin common/cdxell/CDjasper common/xell/xell-gggggg.bin



If you have a Jasper with CB version 6751 you need to downgrade to 6750, download this archive, copy the cb_6750.bin file next to your nand image in the RGH folder.
Then use this command :


python common/imgbuild/build.py orig.bin common/cdxell/CDjasper common/xell/xell-gggggg.bin Cb_6750.bin.


Example with an Xbox Slim :



You should see the following



Once the process is over, you should find the file image_00000000.ecc in the output folder.



D : Flashing the ECC image :


Step 1 : Copy the image_00000000.ecc file into your nandpro folder and navigate to the folder via command prompt again.


Step 2 : Use the following command to flash the image to your console's NAND.


? SIf you have a 16 mo nand


nandpro usb: +w16 image_00000000.ecc


Pay attention that you have to use the +w16 command instead of -w16


If you have a 256/512 mo nand


nandpro usb: +w64 image_00000000.ecc


Pay attention that you have to use the +w64 command instead of -w64



The flashed file has a size of 50 blocks so you should see 004F when the flashing is done.


E: Wiring :





If you use CMOD or seeestudio board, you will have to add this electronic components :






If you use CMOD or seeestudio board, you will have to add this electronic components :


F: Programming the CPLD :


Step 1 : Grab your LPT/USB XilinX JTAG programmer cable. Connect the cable to the PC and the CPLD.(If you don't have one, you can use GliGli's schematic to build a LPT JTAG Programmer)


Step 2 : if you use a LPT a cable, connect the power suppy to your console without turning it on.


Step 3 : Two program the CPLD you can use, 360gcprog (recommended) or "iMPACT" (from XilinX Lab Tools)


? 360GCProg


Step 4 : If you have a LPT Jtag cable, you will have to know the port adress of you LPT cable. Go in Device Manager and in the Ports (COM and LPT) section open the properties of you cable).



Now check the Input Adress (on the pics it’s D480)



Step 5 : In select cable, choose if you have a USB ou LPT cable:


? If you have a USB cable go directly so step 4.

? If you have a LPT cable, clik on the settiongs logo.



Step 6 : Put the value we get in Step 1 and then Save.



Step 7 : Click on connect, you should see the status at the bottom moving to Connected and displaying the chip model.




Step 8 : In select file to flash, click on the small arrow and choose the JED corresponding to your motherboard.
NB : You can use a custom on by clicking on the … logo



Step 9 : Now clik on Flash.



You should see :



Your CPLD is now programmed and ready to make your console glitch.

? Impact


Launch "iMPACT" (from XilinX Lab Tools) and let's start the programming ... just follow the images.(You have to setup the compatibility mode only if your Programmer does not get detected right away).









Selectionner le JED pour Zéphyr ou Jasper selon votre console.






F: Grabing the CPU keys and building the Hacked Image:


 Step 1 : Connect your xbox (to your local network too), start your console normally and see XeLL boot within 2 minutes



Step 2 : Note the Ip adress written at the end of XeLL :


Step 3 : Create your nand with XeBuild GUI. Follow the step in the video (watch in full screen for better quality).

Example for Xbox Slim :



The FCRT patch permit to not provide FCRT.bin and .meta files for the building process. You can use it on all xbox slim except the one with 1175 Drive.


G: Flashing the hacked NAND


Step 1 : Download RawFlash V4 and put the xenon.elf file at the root of the USB key.


Step 2 : Copy the hacked NAND renamed nandflash.bin at the root of the USBkey.



Step 3 : Plus the USB key in your 360 and turn it on, you should see this :



H: Installing Dashlaunch


The patch for dashlaunch are already added in the nand built by Xebuild GUI, you only have to create a launch.ini file in order to set the apps you want on direct boot.


Step 1 : Create a NotePad file and rename it to launch.ini


Step 2 : Open the launch.ini with NotePad and set the path you want as directboot and quickboot:


Currently supported devices and paths:
- internal hard disk    Hdd:\
- usb memory stick      Usb:\
- memory unit           Mu:\
- USB memory unit       UsbMu:\
- big block NAND mu     FlashMu:\

- 4Go Slim memory        IntMu:\

- CD/DVD                Dvd:\     (not recommended to use this one)
buttons can point to any xex, or any CON with default.xex in it on any of the above devices
note that Right Bumper is ALWAYS default to return NXE


This file should begin with [QuickLaunchButtons]


For example mine is

Default = Usb:\applications\FSD2 Alpha\Default.xex
BUT_X = Hdd:\Content\0000000000000000\C0DE9999\00080000\C0DE99990F586558


My console startup on FSD and if i press X it boot on XeXMenu. To boot on NXE maintain RB during return to dashboard.


Step 3 : Put the launch.ini at the root of your HDD USB, HDD 360 or memory unit


H: Avatars Update


Step 1 : Download the official update corresponding to kernel version you need. (type in the LS bar search the number of the update ex : 14699, 13599 ...)

Step 2 : Rename $systemupdate to $$ystemupdate


Step 3 : Placez le dossier à la racine d'une clé USB et laisser la mise à jours se faire. La console va redémarrer  et les avatars seront installé.


IV: TroubleShootings


A: Soldering the Hardware


? After soldering i get 0022 RROD :

?This can happen if the wire from CPY_PLL_BYPASS is too thick or too thin. Try to use another cable.
?You flashed the image with a wrong command via nandpro or you didn't flash the Hack-Image yet.


? The console doesn't show any reaction after the soldering (doesn't turn on) :

?The trace/solder point STBY_CLK could be damaged. Check it and solder again if needed. (It needs connection to the resistor!)


? A point of the motherboard got damaged while soldering:

?Get somebody, who knows what he does, to do this job

?Look at the diagram in the Altpoint folder




B: Programming the CPLD :

Your CPLD don’t show up on iMPACT or 360gcprog :

?Vérifiez  que votre CPLD est bien alimenter si vous utilisez un cable LPT.

?Vérifiez vos soudures et qu'il n'y est pas de court-circuit


C: Grabing the CPU key  :

? Console doesn't show XeLL

?Be sure you hear the Resets (Power supply giving a high pitched sound, Fans slowing down around each 5 seconds)

?Check if the .ecc Image was created correctly :

         - 1BL added in build.py for FAT?

         - Did you use the good CD File (CD/CDjasper)?

         - Did you remap the badblock before 4F,

         - Did you flash the .ecc image with Nandpro 2.0e and the command "+w16" or "+w64" (depending on your NAND-Size)?.

?Avoid this area on FAT



? Xell Boot but console freeze randomly (FAT)

?Check you wiring don't pass throught these areas.



D : Hacked NAND  :


? Xell Show up but not on the MS dash.

?The LDV value you used is probably false, grab it directly from XeLL : count the number of F in the fuseline 7, when you have the value rebuild a nand with the proper value and flash it.

it's pretty much the same things, look in the hack archive /fat/wiring ... for the wiring.
Then you just have to use the correct jed and command line for the fat...

Low-cost JTAG configuration solution
Intended for use with Digilent FPGA boards. (Not intended for use with Digilent AVR boards)
Connects directly to the parallel port of a PC, and to a standard 6-pin JTAG programming header
Can program devices that have a JTAG voltage of 1.8V or greater

http://digilentinc.c...ath=2,395&Cat=5 (Dernier sur la liste..)

Cela va fonctionner avec le Digital C-Mod ?

Je ne trouve pas le plant pour le wiring du "Phat" ...

Good work Gents, very impressive!

Anyone have a schematic for a SPI USB Programmer?
Would I be able to replicate the Digilent C-mod from these schematics {http://digilentinc.c.../C-Mod_sch.pdf} ? Or does the Digilent C-mod chip come pre-programmed with a bootloader of sorts?
Can I use any JTAG programmer, or build one perhaps from a online schematic?'

Any help would be much appreciated, this hack is frikken AWeSome!

Well there is not much things to say :

- Double check all you soldering, you can use multimeter to be sure ...
- Be sure to have the needed driver installed ...*

If you still get trouble maybe just buy a cheap usb spi ... it should cost like 15 20 $ ...

My link was remowed (but it's not a warez site) ???
So I decided to wrote here...

My Jasper Dead after I wrote the ecc image.
It wont boot at all & I can't wrote the original nand.

Used USB nand reader (PIC F182550-17SP) with JtagTool (from coolshrimp)
"CB=6750 and Feb/March 2009 model with 74850c"

I have done reading nand couple of times.
1st : Done
2nd : Not matching with first.
3rd : Match.
4th : Match.

Program created ecc image and I wrote this to X360.

After that it never booted, or give a life signal.
My USB shown as a Memory device but when I try to wrote the image to xbox, nandpro shows that "no flash configuration found" message.

I have tryed with and without Coolrunner chip.
It won't open, what could it be?
I don't think is my CoolRunner causes the problem, because my jasper dead after I wrote the ecc image.

Someone says on other forums to anoher person "maybe your nand blocked, you have to shore the nand"...
But I can't find any information about that...

Thanks, I've a RGH and a JTAG and I favor the RGH more.The reason is simple -  it can be done on a slim. Not sure if Xbox 360 LT 3.0 can be jtagged. Any experience with it?
