What is RGH3?:
RGH 3 is a new method to glitch your XBOX 360 console. This method only requires 2 wires and some resistors. No glitch chip required.
What consoles work with RGH3?:
- Jasper (16mb/256mb/512mb)
NOTE: RGH3 is very hit or miss on some phat consoles. If you have issues, or strange booting behaviour, your console might not be playing nice with RGH3 and I would strongly advise using RGH1.2.
- Corona (v1 – v6)
Need help understanding what console you have? Use Octal’s Xbox 360 Identification Wizard!
Things you'll need:
- A basic toolkit which includes torx bits
- A device to read the consoles nand (xFlasher, NAND-X, JR-Programmer, MTX Flasher, Raspberry Pi Pico)
- Some 28-30awg single core wrapping wire (sometimes known as Kynar wire)
- A soldering iron and some soldering experience as you’ll be working with tiny points.
NOTE: Corona V3/V4/V5/V6 motherboards will need a Post Fix Adapter, if you are unsure please follow this diagram:
Resistors and diodes:
- All Phats: 1x 1n4148 (or similar) Diode
- All Phats: 1x 22k Resistor: (Red, Red, Orange, Yellow)
- Trinity: 1x 3k-10k Resistor: (Brown, Black, Orange, Gold)
- Corona: 1x 1k Resistor: (Brown, Black, Red, Gold)
Raspberry Pi Pico:
If you want to use the Raspberry Pi Pico – make sure you are using the latest version of Octal450’s J-Runner with Extras.
You will also need to flash your Raspberry Pi Pico with the latest version of PicoFlasher which can be found here: https://github.com/X360Tools/PicoFlasher/releases/
Flashing your Pico with UF2 file:
- Simply hold the BOOTSEL button down on your Pico and plug into your computer, it should show up as removable storage.
- Click and drag the UF2 file to the Pico in your file explorer. The device should automatically unmount on completion.
- Now, load up J-Runner and you should see PicoFlasher come up as connected device. Once you see this, follow through with steps below!
Step 1: Tear down your console to the motherboard, follow guides on YouTube if you get stuck!
Step 2: Once torn down, solder your NAND headers to your console. Here are some diagrams for each console variation
NAND header locations:
JR-P / NAND-X / xFlasher 360
Step 3: Once you connect your NAND reader cables, wire up your RGH3 cables. See below for install points.
RGH3 install diagrams:
Place a 22k resistor on the PLL point and solder your wire to the other side of the resistor.
Place a 1n4148 diode with the cathode end (black banded end) on POST and solder your wire to the other side of the Diode.
Topside PLL Point
Bottom Alt PLL Point
Step 4: Once you are happy with the points, they are connected properly, and your NAND cables are installed, it’s time to glitch the console!
Give your console standby power and and connect your programmer. Follow the steps below.
To begin – press the ‘?’ button in J-Runner to make sure your programmer can see your console properly.
If you get an error – check your programmer wires before continuing!
Thank you to Octal450 for his amazing J-Runner with Extras
Thank you to 15432 for the discovery of RGH3
