Zephyr RGH2 Tutorial

Learn how to RGH2 your Zephyr System!

Chip: X360ACE V3
Install: Custom RGH2
Built by: Octal

Please keep in mind, this tutorial is designed for people who already have RGH experience. It is strongly not recommended to do a Zephyr as a first console. Do a Falcon or Jasper first.

ECC and XeBuild Info:

Read NAND as normal (2 dumps, make sure they match)

Instead of clicking Create ECC/Write ECC, go to Advanced -> Custom NAND/CR Functions, click Write, 16, and load the file J-Runner/common/ECC/FALCON.ECC. Then click Run to write the ECC to the console.

Get the CPU key like normal after installing the chip.

Before clicking ‘Create XeBuild image’, make sure to change the board from ZEPHYR to FALCON. Failure to do so will cause infinite glitching!

Timing File Info:

Because we removed the diode and put 1.8V, you must have the Xbox plugged into power in order to program the glitch chip. Or else it won’t work!

I recommend to start with 300MHz 3_1. The best timings are:

  • 150MHz 2_1
  • 300MHz 3_1
  • 300MHz 4_1

Chip placement, 1.8V point, GND to A/V port:


Solder wire from 1.8V on board to 1.8V point on ACE:
Remove the diode. Failing to do so will cause damage to your CPU


Solder 5V, E (SCL) and F (SDA):


Solder wire to alternate C (POST_OUT) point on ACE:
Don’t use the normal C pad!!!!!!!!!!!

Solder C (POST_OUT):


Solder D (CPU_RST):
