XBMC for Android announced!

XBMC for Android announced! Source code now available, beta APKs coming soon! XBMC has announced its full-featured app for Android. 'Not a remote, not a thin client; the real deal. No root or jailbreak required'. Pretty good news for owners of Android devices, that are also fans of the famous XBMC released on the original Xbox platform. XBMC developers have revealed that they've created a version of their Media Center that runs on Android. The Source Code is available for download right now, and APKs for BETA testers are promised "in the coming weeks". QUOTE "Not a remote, not a thin client; the real deal. No root or jailbreak required. XBMC can be launched as an application on your set-top-box, tablet, phone, or wherever else Android may be found. The feature-set on Android is the same that you have come to expect from XBMC, no different from its cousin on the desktop. Running your favorite media-center software on small, cheap, embedded hardware is about to become a hassle-free reality. And as Android-based set-top-boxes are becoming more and more ubiquitous, it couldn't be a better time. …We will begin releasing apks for interested beta testers in the coming weeks. But for those who are up to the task, as you would expect from XBMC, the source code is available. We have decided not to push to Google Play until we are satisfied that users with all kinds of devices get the same great XBMC experience." /QUOTE So, stay tuned.

Xecuter Corona16 XC2C64A VHDL Source Code

We have added the full VHDL source code for our Corona16 XC2C64A hack. As reported before the limitations of the hardware make it an unreliable glitch – we have fixed this with the upcoming CoolRunner 3. We also found the possible reason that Xell doesn't boot with any video. The ref clock changes from 14Mhz to 24Mhz. On Corona it changes to 30Mhz and crashes – hence no video. This is ref clock for lvds controller on the GPU from lvds hana change sync in hdmi. But if lvds doesn't work, then the gui doesn't work. No doubt the Xell guys will have a fix shortly. In the meantime you can get your CPU Key via Jrunner over lan using Xell – and you can even use the CK3i or NAND-X USB Update cable to get the CPU Key over Serial – JRunner will open the COM Port and sniff the key out for you – we added this a couple of weeks ago 😉 Enjoy — Xbox 360 slim reset glitch hack, 48Mhz clock + fake POST + i2c version — by GliGli – Corona Added by Team Xecuter library IEEE; use IEEE.STD_LOGIC_1164.ALL; use IEEE.NUMERIC_STD.ALL; entity main is generic ( SCL_BITS : STD_LOGIC_VECTOR(255 downto 0) := b"1100100100100100100100100100001111100001001001001001001001001000011111000010010010010010010010010000111110000100100100100100100100100001111100001001001001001001001001000011111000010010010010010010010010000111110000100100100100100100100100001111100001111111"; SDA_SLOW_BITS : STD_LOGIC_VECTOR(255 downto 0) := b"1001111111110000000000000001111111111111111100000011111111111111111111111000000000000000111000000111111111110000001111110000000000001111111111100011100011100011100000011111111111000111000111000111000000111111111110000000000001110000000001111111111100101111"; SDA_FAST_BITS : STD_LOGIC_VECTOR(255 downto 0) := b"1001111111110000000000000001111111111111111100000011111111111111111111111000000000000000111000000111111111111111110000000000000000001111111111111100011100011111100000011111111111000111000000000111000000111111111110001110000000000000000001111111111100101111" ); port ( DBG : out STD_LOGIC := '0'; POSTBIT : in STD_LOGIC; CLK : in STD_LOGIC; CPU_RESET : inout STD_LOGIC := 'Z'; SDA : out  STD_LOGIC := 'Z'; SCL : out  STD_LOGIC := 'Z' ); end main; architecture counter of main is constant I2C_CNT_WIDTH : integer := 15; constant I2C_CLK_DIV : integer := 128; constant CNT_WIDTH : integer := 16; constant POSTCNT_WIDTH : integer := 4; constant POST_B8 : integer := 10; constant POST_BA : integer := 11; constant POST_BB : integer := 12; constant WIDTH_RESET_START ...

Xecuter DIY Corona16 CoolRunner – Free Upgrade

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS CORONA RGH METHOD IS NOT TOO RELIABLE AND DOES NOT GLITCH AT THE BEST SPEEDS. THE HACK IS MADE AVAILABLE SO YOU CAN  HAVE A PLAY WITH THIS YOURSELF AND SEE WHAT RESULTS YOU CAN ACHIEVE. THIS IS WHY WE DESIGNED THE COOLRUNNER 3, IT HAS BEEN FINE TUNED USING A MUCH MORE ADVANCED DESIGN AND GLITCHES VERY RELIABLY AND VERY FAST. WE DO NOT OFFER ANY GUARANTEES OR SUPPORT WITH THIS CORONA METHOD. To get this working on CoolRunner Rev A B or C you simply have to add a 48.000MHz crystal. If you have Rev A or Rev B remember to remove C15. It's a bit cheap and cheerful and the hack isn't that good with the limitations of the older gen XC264A hardware but here it is anyway. The crystal has to be good quality – not some cheap crappy one as it will not work. These work very well: http://ie.farnell.com/jsp/search/pro…sp?SKU=1640968 48.000MHz crystal wiring to the CoolRunner: PIN 1,4 to 3v3 PIN 2 to GND PIN 3 to B We have included 6 files with different timings: tx_corona_0_2.xsvf tx_corona_0_3.xsvf tx_corona_1_2.xsvf tx_corona_1_3.xsvf tx_corona_2_2.xsvf tx_corona_2_3.xsvf The most important point is the CPU_RST – this will make the difference between a 30 second glitch and a 30 minute glitch. You may want to try using the CPU RESET CLEANER addon that we released – it works very well with RGH1 and RGH2. We also recommend you try the different wire layouts as per the original CoolRunner instructions. CoolRunner 3 is in production right now – you will get to see how Slim glitching should be done Thanks to GliGli & Tiros for the original RGH exploit. – Team Xecuter   Download...

CoolRunner 3 In Production/Free DIY Corona Upgrade/CPU RESET Cleaner/JRPv1 Upgrade /iPhone App for Demon and CoolRunner

CoolRunner 3 Now In Production We are now pleased to announce that full production has started and PRE-ORDERS will be authorized this week. It's been just over 2 months since we cracked the Corona and perfected the boot performance along with the new RATER System so you can get the absolute best quality glitch for your money. The JR programmer v2 is also in production along with a brand new QSB for the Trinity and the Corona. As a special gift and in honor of our American friends as today is 4th July we will include a free RATER QSB System in the first 1000 CoolRunner 3's free of charge (Value $6.95) Free DIY Corona Upgrade For CoolRunners Speaking of special gifts….. We have decided to release some of our code that will glitch 16MB Corona's using a CoolRunner or any other standard XC2C64A based glitch board. It's still RGH2 based and is no where near as good and fast and reliable as the CoolRunner 3 / RGH3 – but for those that want to have a play until then, you can easily do a DIY upgrade by adding a 48.000MHz crystal. A NAND-X or JR programmer v1 can still be used to read/write the 16MB NAND. The pic shows a Rev A, we're just putting together the info for the Rev B and Rev C too and will get all of that code and parts info posted shortly. EDIT: DOWNLOAD HERE CPU RESET Cleaner Shipping This Week ! One of the main problems for RGH2 users (and some RGH1 too), is the quality of the CPU_RST line. Over the last couple of weeks we have seen some great results on our forums with various methods of combining different capacitors and resistors to give a really nice performance boost (some guys went from not glitching at all to 10...

Xecuter CoolRunner 3 Update & RATER Feature

We are happy to announce that the new and latest version of the CoolRunner 3 design is now in the hands of a core group of testers and we are very happy with the results on Trinity & Corona. The updated RGH3 is giving great timings on our test machines (both Trinity & Corona are glitching amazingly well (1,1,2,1,1,1,1,1,2,1…..). We can also now tell you about the new RATER feature. When hooked up to a new QSB system that we will show you soon and the new J-R programmer v2, the J-Runner software will automatically test your glitch settings for you giving an overall score in performance (this is fully automatic including console resets!) There are several timing settings that we found to work across our test machines so we included them all on the CoolRunner v3 – so you can simply test each setting and stick with the best RATER score. The average timings can be taken over a few tests or hundreds – even thousands (example we tested a machine with 1500 and found its highest rater score to show that 83% of its glitches were in its very first glitch cycle!) No more guess work We will give you more info very soon, but we are gearing up ready for full production in the next few weeks. Join IRC Channel #RGH3 For all the latest...
