Team Xecuter Presents: DemoN NandSwitcher 1.0 (Codename !DSWITCH)

Team Xecuter Presents: DemoN NandSwitcher 1.0 (Codename !DSWITCH) Users who have a demon can now toggle their nands without getting up. This solution works after the console has glitched and the bootanimation has played. For this reason this solution is more pleasant to use on a console that glitches super fast, for example the CR3 Pro (Slim) or our brand new hack for phats – R-JTAG (more on that later….) Technical Details: XEX file is launched. UART command is issued to inform DemoN of the nand switching intentions. Console is issued a clean shutdown command. DemoN uses X8 to detect console is off. DemoN toggles nand, clears smc and boots console. Once the user is done playing on the console and shuts it down DemoN takes over again. DemoN again uses X8 to detect console is off. DemoN toggles nand, clears smc and leaves console off. DemoN Requirements: For proper operation, X8 needs to be soldered to 3V3 non-standby. Kiosk pin (x7) needs to be soldered to the kiosk pin on the console. DemoN needs to be updated to the latest firmware v1.04 How to Use: Install Demon as normal with the additional requirements of X8 being installed. Transfer the XEX to the console. Setup the xex file as a quick launch entry in launch.ini. Example: BUT_X = hdd:\Apps\NandSwitcher.xex Boot console and hold the quick launch button you used. Thanks to TB, BioHazard, cOz, NatelX and the rest of the DemoN dev team. DemoN really is a fantastic device. If anyone is serious about having a high end nand switching system that includes a stack of low level development commands and features with continued support, at just $49.95 the DemoN is the only choice on the market.

Xecuter Sonus 360 Phat Edition (REVIEW)

Thanks to 360crunch.net for their nice review of the Xecuter Sonus for Xbox 360 Phat Consoles. I must start out by saying the Sonus for Phat 360s is one of if not the coolest mod I have seen released for the 360. This Sonus was installed to my sons RGHed Falcon but would work the same on a retail Phat console minus the ability for the Glitch sound. The install was very easy and took maybe 10mins which includes disassembling the 360. Then came the hard part which was finding a sound that my son liked. After going through all the Slim sounds and a few of the custom sounds I finally found the one he wanted which was some "Mario" sounds created by a TX user named "x360ccm". It was funny to watch him try and hide his excitement but the big grin on his face gave it all away. I must say that I am very impressed with every aspect of this little mod, and what makes it better is the excitement my son got from it. Normally when I do a review I like to list the Pros and Cons but have not found a single Con with this.
