Xecuter CR4 and DGX(RGX) Xbox 360 Mods Reviewed

Xecuter CR4 and DGX(RGX) Xbox 360 Mods Reviewed
Published by: scarface on Sunday, February 11, 2018
Tagged: Gaming, Hardware, Homebrew, Xbox 360,

Our friend's over at Shop01media sent out a couple of RGH Chips to test out.

The first one is Xecuter DGX V1.0S

This is also known as the RGX as it was first only used to pull the key for slims only good for slims also for the RGH But with Xecuter releasing a couple tweaked files its like having a ck3 pro but better.



The second one is Xecuter CR4


Tools:
- Soldering Iron
- Soldering Knowledge (practice makes perfect ha) J-R Programmer V2



PC Software:
- Jrunner (Download)

Install Tutorials:
- DGX
- CR4

**Check in Jrunner Folder there is a diagram for both DGX(RGX) and CR4 and a lot of helpful info.**

How the DGX became the RGX:
RGX

Xbox 360s I installed them too
- Trinity (DGX)
- Corona (CR4)

The items arrived well packaged and they shipped perfectly with no damage. Shop01media ships worldwide which is nice for lots of people trying to find a good place to get real xecuter chips or other modding products. They have a variety of products from Nintendo GC to PS4 and of course Xbox to Xbox One products Big list of items nice layout has prices in DKK, EUR, NOK, PLN, GBP, SEK, USD so you can look at without having to guess. But now onto the products I received.

So i installed the DGX (RGX) in a trinity that was being very stubborn and couldn't get it to glitch for the life of me no matter what i set it to and how good my soldering was this would just not boot. Well with this installed i was able to out of 10 glitches it would glitch within 1-2 glitches about 5-10 secs this would have my console booting i am very well surprised that this chip was able to make that much of a difference and is worth every penny to me. There is several timing files for the trinity and corona that are used with different resistors you find the right set and you are golden and that tutorial they state what to try first i got lucky and did the first set and worked perfect so i did not need to test further as 5-15 sec boots are amazing to me and i am just super stoked that this chip allowed me to do this to my trinity as it was sitting in storage for the longest time, tried multiple chips and this one worked perfect out of them all. If you ever had installed any previous Xecuter glitch chip this one is just as easy as the others.



Now with the CR4 on my corona i am not big fan of the Corona boards as well there is so many versions and before you go and try buying stuff you think you need, first thing you should do is take the xbox apart and figure out what version you have and this will help and save money in the long run. I by far am a big Xecuter fan as they make top notch products that hold many years to come and it proves that with my original Xbox X3 and X2 Modchips still working today. I do not knock others I will be testing other brands here in the next few months to also give my honest feedback and just like Xecuter, even though I like their products if I find something that I don't like i speak my mind. This chip works just as great and i actually tested this out in my corona and also a standard phat 360 (little bit slower on the phats but not by much on boot times this was with no tweaking so if I was to tweak it some I could get amazing boot speeds but i just wanted to test it really fast) my corona boots in about 15 seconds, this I am happy with and install was easy with the guidance of the tutorials on Jrunner itself. This one is a good overall for both the phat and slim Xbox 360's and boots really fast (5 to 15 secs) There is so much tweaking options on the CR4 in time i will see if i can slim that time down but myself i don't like to spend hours on something that boots 2-5 secs when 5-15 seconds is not that long lol. But this option is there for those that want to really fine tweak there console.



If you have a trinity that is really struggling with boot times and/or no booting the DGX(RGX) is going to be the cure for you and I would get them while you can before they get sold out. I am going to be buying a few myself here soon just because of how many hours i spent on trying to get this one i have now to boot in a decent amount of time or to boot at all this chip was able to fix both issues and give me great boot speeds and also if you having issues for some reason Use a 50cm - 70cm to post_out and this should fix the issue.

CR4 overall a great all around chip for both phat and slim Xbox 360s with many tweaking options all in one chip itself in my book is also a great purchase and time saving chip as i just dumped my nands and installed xex and did the custom dash and set it to what they said in jrunner for my type of board and like i said it boots within 5 to 15 secs and i am happy with this.

I have also ordered from Shop01media and i am based in the usa and they will anwser any questions you have before hand and help guide you to the best choice and again have a great selection in many different consoles and world wide shipping. So if you need anything Xbox related or PlayStation or even Nintendo check them out amazing selection.

As a Christmas bonus we have also released our latest GamePack – Call of Duty: Ghosts !

GCW-Zero Open Source Gaming Handheld Reviewed

GCW-Zero Open Source Gaming Handheld Reviewed
Published by: forahobby on Friday, August 09, 2013
Tagged: Gaming, Hardware, Homebrew,

The guys over at gcw-zero have graciously shipped us out their GCW-Zero: Open Source Gaming Handheld to review for you all on HQ.


A huge thanks are in order to the guy's over at www.gcw-zero.com for shipping this unit out to us! Before we go any further you should understand that this unit is still in early stages, this meaning that there is not alot that it can do at the moment.

What's a GCW-Zero I hear you say? The GCW-Zero is a Linux flavored handheld powerful enough to run classic PC games, emulate the game consoles we grew up with and run homebrew games seamlessly at high frame rates.

The GCW can be comparable to a phat PSP 1001 models in a way, back in the day there were tons and tons of firmware exploits released that allowed you to run homebrew and emulators. With the GCW Zero you can do just that without having to have to worry about a update blocking your emulators. Below we see the unit on.

The console runs on Linux software, not android. So far the only way to get Apps is through FTPing OPK files which is basically binary c/c++ programming from my understanding, or loading them through a Micro SD card slot. Personally the console Emulates just fine for me. I tested a NES emulator and had no issues, as mentioned there is not alot it can do at the moment as it is still in early beta stages. Devs are working really hard on pushing out software. The guy's over at GCW Zero did mention that there would be a App store pushed eventually.

In all honesty do not expect this device to run high end games, as the specs are a bit low, coincidentally the GCW zero ships with a respectable 32GB of internal memory it can be expandable to 64GB. Since this device is to mainly run retro gaming the screen resolution is 320 x 240 with a 3:4 ratio which is ideal for retro gaming as stated on their website.

Microsoft: Independent Developers Can Self-Publish on Xbox One

Microsoft: Independent Developers Can Self-Publish on Xbox One
Published by: forahobby on Wednesday, July 24, 2013
Tagged: Gaming, Hardware, Homebrew, Xbox One,

Major Nelson confirmed today that the next generation Xbox One console, scheduled for release this November, will allow independent game developers to self-publish their own Indie games.


Here's what Microsoft Mac Whitten had to say:

"Our vision is that every person can be a creator. That every Xbox One can be used for development. That every game and experience can take advantage of all of the features of Xbox One and Xbox LIVE. This means self-publishing. This means Kinect, the cloud, achievements. This means great discoverability on Xbox LIVE."

Marc also clarified to IGN just recently that not all of these features will be available at launch (including the ability to use any console as a dev kit), but the goal is to make the process have "as low of a barrier to entry as possible" for independent developers.

Microsoft will be revealing further details on the program and the timeline at Gamescom this August. Until then, browse through all of XboxONE-HQ's info on the Microsoft's upcoming next generation Xbox One Console including: Xbox One Video Games & Release Dates, Xbox One Screenshots, Xbox One Game Trailers and the latest Xbox One News via the games database.

Hacker Ports Xbox 360 Game to PC, Calls It 'Justice'

Hacker Ports Xbox 360 Game to PC, Calls It 'Justice'
Published by: X_Splinter on Wednesday, June 05, 2013
Tagged: Gaming, Homebrew, Xbox 360,

Some Russian hacker, unilaterally deciding that PC gamers have the inalienable right to play the 2011 Xbox 360 game The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile (pictured), just up and ported the thing, saying "This is not piracy, this is restoration of justice."

The Dishwasher Hacked!

According to a translation of the GameDev.ru forums, the hacker, named Barabus, said "the authors are not very nice to publish the game exclusively for the Xbox 360, making it impossible for PC gamers to play in such a great game."

Then, "Given that developers ignore the PC platform, about any loss of profit for them is not out of the question. After all, if they wanted to earn money, then the game would be issued on all available platforms."

Darkmatter Xbox Laptop Project and DIY Kit. Build your own!
Published by: forahobby on Friday, May 24, 2013
Tagged: Gaming, Hardware, Homebrew, Xbox 360, Xbox One,

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).
