Darkmatter Xbox Laptop Project and DIY Kit. Build your own!

Darkmatter Xbox Laptop Project and DIY Kit. Build your own!

Introducing Darkmatter, the world's first Xbox laptop that you can buy as a fully assembled product or in kit form. Now Xbox ONE compatible!


Inspired by Ben Heck and many other modders and hackers in the Xbox Community, Darkmatter is the world's first portable Open Source Xbox system that you can buy as a fully finished product, or in kit form.

The project is Open Source and once the funding goal on Kickstarter is met, all design files will be released to the public. The laptop features touch controls for eject, synch, volume etc. It also comes with built in stereo speakers, a headphone jack and an amp. The display is a 15 inch 720p pane. A DVD drive is included and the system is compatible with all Xbox 360 games as it is based on the slim version of the popular Microsoft console.

Darkmatter Xbox Laptop Features
  • Thin
  • Xbox 360 and XBox ONE (kit only) compatible
  • Easy to build
  • Affordable
  • Equipped with an internal DVD
  • Able to work with Xbox peripherals such as Kinect(r)
  • Equipped with capacitive touch controls for volume, mute, sync, power etc.

The Darkmatter laptop is powered off the same power brick that comes with your Xbox. When you contribute at the $999 or greater levels, you get a fully functional, ready-to-go Darkmatter unit with the power brick included. Please note, Darkmatter is not equipped with an internal battery.


Darkmatter incorporates an Xbox 360 Slim 4GB inside, which means that it supports Wi-Fi connectivity, Xbox Live and all the other Xbox 360 features. As of Update #1, we've announced Xbox ONE compatibility for the $499 reward level (complete kit).

Newer Xbox 360 Slim drives will require RGH to obtain DVD key

Newer Xbox 360 Slim drives will require RGH to obtain DVD key
Published by: X_Splinter on Wednesday, October 31, 2012
Tagged: Gaming, Hardware, Homebrew, Xbox 360,

With Team Xecuter's official annoucement today of the associated products (CR3 Pro and CR3-DGX), we're now able to publicly clarify that, contrary to an earlier statement made by c4eva on 2012-08-19, RGH (Reset Glitch Hack) is in fact required for DVD Key retrieval from all newer drives; Lite-On 1175/1532 DG-16D5S, and Hitachi 0500/0502 DLN10N.

Team Xecuter

To break it down a bit, these are the DVD Key retrieval RGH requirements:
  • DVD Key retrieval from Lite-On 1175/1532 DG-16D5S on kernel 2.0.14XXX.0 or lower, requires CoolRunner Rev. A/B/C, CR3 Lite, or CR3 Pro (Slim version).

  • DVD Key retrieval from Lite-On 1175/1532 DG-16D5S on kernel 2.0.15XXX.0/2.0.16XXX.0 and higher, requires CR3 Pro (Slim version) + CR3-DGX.

  • DVD Key retrieval from Hitachi 0500/0502 DLN10N on kernel 2.0.14XXX.0 or lower, requires CoolRunner Rev. A/B/C, CR3 Lite, or CR3 Pro (Slim version).

  • DVD Key retrieval from Hitachi 0500/0502 DLN10N on kernel 2.0.15XXX.0/2.0.16XXX.0 and higher, requires CR3 Pro (Slim version) + CR3-DGX.

The CR3-DGX is an add-on that connects to the CR3 Pro and aids in CPU/DVD Key retrieval for systems on updated kernels 2.0.15XXX.0/2.0.16XXX.0 and higher. Until now, these systems were unable to have their keys retrieved by normal means due to Microsoft's thwarting of the "XOR hack" as of the 2.0.15572.0 update, which added a new key to the RC4 key hash calculation.

With the new Unlocked DVD Replacement PCB, LT Ultimate, and now Team Xecuter's other newly-introduced products, all 360s can now be RGH'd and all DVD drives can be flashed a truly momentous point in Xbox 360 scene history!
