Introduction
Welcome to the RGH/JTAG FAQ. First off, it should be noted that the JTAG and RGH methods of hacking your console are two completely different things but they run the same code. Basically, you can pick either method and still get the same console and sweet mods.

RGH
FAQ

Q. What is an RGH?
A. The term RGH stands for Reset Glitch Hack. In order to successfully have an RGH, it requires more soldering and a chip permanently on the motherboard. Free60 "found that by sending a tiny reset pulse to the processor while it is slowed down does not reset it but instead changes the way the code runs".

Q. How much do RGHs cost?
A. $150-$200
The price varies when you take the motherboard revision and accessories into account.

Q. Can RGHs go online?
A. Yes, they can. A service called XBLSE can get you online.

Q. What is my motherboard revision?
A.

Q. Can I RGH my console?
A. This chart should help you:

Q. UGH! I need more information! Where can I get it?
A. The Xbox 360 Ultimate Exploit Guide should help you.

Q. What is Dashlaunch and how can I get it?
A. Dashlaunch is almost like an alternative dashboard for your console. This tool is significant because it allows you to run RTE, or Real Time Editing, which is needed in some games like Halo and Call of Duty. If I put a download link, in the future it will become outdated, so Google is your friend.

Q. What do I need to RGH my console?
A. The following list is the necessary:
- Soldering skills
- Flux
- Exploitable console
- NAND-X or an alternative NAND dump chip
-Coolrunner or an alternative RGH chip
-T9 or T10 screw drivers

FAQ
Q. Wait a second, what's the difference between an RGH and a JTAG?
A. The methods of getting the hacked console. The JTAG method is relatively easier than the RGH, but the JTAG method is out of date and can only be done on Phat consoles with dashboard 7371 or lower , while console higher than that to 14699 have to be RGHed. Consoles with 14717 or Higher need to have RGH2 or R-JTAG ( Which has been discontinued )

Q. If the JTAG method is out of date, what else could I do?
A. You could see if you can do the RGH method, of course, but you also could do the R-JTAG method. It's somewhat new and it's an alternative to the JTAG method.

Q. What's the best motherboard for the JTAG hack?
A. I would say the Jasper motherboard is the best motherboard. It's the latest of the Phat consoles. Second best is Falcons.

Thats all pretty much personal preference. Of course a jasper jtag is rare and most wanted, but alot of people would rather have a slim which can only be RGH2

Might I suggest updating the motherboard identification image to include reference to the Xbox 360 Slim E series? Since those are all that is currently in production these days...

I mocked up this image some time ago, and it's probably worth mentioning that there is a new motherboard out there "Winchester" that is likely never going to be RGH'able at all. As far as I know those are only in the blue Slim E bundles that were sold with Fifa 15.

Ought to change the date on the E :tongue: Just thought I would pick fun as the Es were released in 2013.

Have you heard of anyone testing the die on the Winchester? I know they moved the post out, but that has a vital part in the console working, so its there, just where? I want to get my hands on one so I can remove the main BGA and do some testing myself :smile:

Haha sala your right on, I just copied pasted that section from the one to the left so it kept the date. I'm only on a chromebook right now and can't really edit images so maybe somebody can snag the image and update it.

The physical size of the XCGPU is different on the Winchester, it's a couple mm smaller than the old one was so I don't know of anyone having messed with it yet. I think PlayingMax over on the TX forums said he was going to but I never saw any update on that.

15432 did some initial analysis and said he though it was not going to get RGH'd and that dude has been really reliable about this stuff so I figure there are enough other consoles in circulation it won't really be a problem.

There has to be some way. I know they changed the die all together, but everything is still the same as the corona, other than the traces and pinouts in and around the die. If I am correct that is the only real part of the motherboard they changed.

I like the thought of this thread and I will be linking my customers here as it shows alot of the info most people ask about!

Worst to best phat motherboards:

Xenon, Opus, Zephyr, Falcon, Jasper

Jaspers are newer and more reliable.

Perceived quality dictates the price. And assuming the console is RGH'd or JTAG then yes, they could use stealth.

So I had been PMing some people trying to figure out information but it seems like everyone just expects you to just know whats what and thats it, no help whatsoever mostly :c This thread has shed some light on things, but I have so many questions. I hope you dont mind me asking them here.

Other than the plug being different and "reliability" somehow being better, is there a real difference in the boards?

If I wanted to get either a JTAG/RGH for fun (money doesnt matter to me, so the price of the system is not a matter - I would buy a system, not doing it myself) purposes, basically being able to mod my stats in any games (cod for instance) as well as my friends stats or prestiges/challenges etc, or host fun lobbies / wall hacks / stupid stuff of the sort, which one is better or easier to get on with? Ive seen people turn themselves invincible and fly around the maps or drop characters wherever they wanted, thats the weird kinda stuff Id like to troll ppl with lol.

Also getting online with the 2, what does it really require? I see lots of ppl make it seem impossible, is it actually annoying to do? I mean, I see people online modding allll the time, so I find it hard to believe. Whats the difference in the rgh/jtag to getting online? Do you have to buy stealth for both? What even is stealth and how long does that last? I guess the same question is to be asked about the KVs :/

Sorry its a ton of questions, but Ive been tryina figure this out for a while. I probably have more, but Im not trying to be here all night haha
