So I had a Pre NXE Xenon console that I messed up the JTAG hack on. (accidentally updated to latest dashboard, idiot over here haha) Now I'm going to RGH it with a coolrunner.

The console I bought has been fixed for the RRoD with a reflow, new thermal compound and special heatsinks. The buyer I bought the console from said to just give it some space and it should never RRoD.

I hear that Xenons are incredibly unreliable for RGH... but is that only because of risk of RRoD? Otherwise are they pretty reliable glitch consoles?

Thanks.

I don't think it will survive rrod plague anyways. RROD is because defective GPU chip, not overheating. I had xbox 360 with 12 volt fan mod, got RROD on 35 degrees celsius.

At this time everything had this plague. Specially laptops and consoles: ps3 and xbox. Even computer gpu's. Ati and Nvidia did a great job for producing defective chips or poor design.

Ah. Okay.

I think I might just practice an RGH on this Xenon I've got. I've failed to RGH/JTAG 4 consoles already, I'll use this console as practice. If the RGH works I'll just flash it back to the retail NAND, sell it and get a Jasper to RGH or something. Hopefully the Jasper RGH will actually be successful lol.

Your Gonna Need A X360ace If You Plan To RGH That Console.

Personally i think the best console you could possibly get would be a trinity rgh. I haven't heard or seen many problems with them at all.
Tried RGHing a Trinity already. Didn't work, it was a bit difficult in my opinion. I might try it again soon, though.

Yeah they are a pain, but the suffering is so well worth it once its working.

Yeah agreed. I hope I get my next trinity working. On my first (and latest) Trinity I accidentally ripped the CPU_RST off as well as some other points. I was doing my console outside in the freezing cold so none of the solder stuck to the board, ripping all the points off that I soldered to. I'm an idiot :arghh:

You got this, you learn from mistakes so i think the next attempt you make it will come out working. do you plan to do anything else to it other than just glitch the board? id be very interested in seeing the progress if you don't mind making another post and keeping us updated!

No, definitely not, however if it is your only option then go ahead, boot times will be slow and will have a high chance of RROD.
Hope this helps :smile:

Slim is the way to go. Less noise, slimmer, power birck is smaller. WIFI. But RGH boot times are slower, but I don't mind it above these pros.
