    Xecuter CR3 Pro v1.0s FAKE POST (Corona v3/v4) - Installation Guides

    LAST UPDATED 07:48PM GMT


    INFO


    This link has all the information you need regarding motherboard identification, NAND 4GB RW QSB and the POSTFIX ADAPTER http://team-xecuter.com/forums/showt...-amp-Solutions



    After yet another exhaustive test run, the CR3 Pro for Corona v3/v4 is ready for public consumption.

    This is aimed at users who demand the highest RGH performance possible and the ability to tune their settings to an extreme level. The CR3 Pro is not for beginners, modders looking for cheap and cheerful solutions or anyone who is happy with slow, unreliable glitching.

    There are other devices out there that claim to be as good and with their own version of RATER but don't believe the hype. Without a 150Mhz RER crystal you are not going to get any where near the performance levels that the CR3 Pro gives you. This is the fastest and most configurable RGH device on the market.

    This new version of CR3 Pro is now designed for slims that have had POST removed - so is developed with new code to support FAKE POST (Corona v3 & Corona v4).

    We have put together two packages. The CR3 Pro Kit which covers the basics (mainly for those who already own the QSB's and JR Programmer v2 etc) and the CR3 Pro Ultimate 19pc Kit which includes absolutely everything that you need to do a complete high performance install including a new version of the POSTFIX ADAPTER (V2 now includes varied lengths for POST_OUT 5/50/70/90/120 CM)

    Xecuter CR3 Pro v1.0S FAKE POST Features:

    • Brand new design - totally new RGH code

    *The new J-R Programmer v2 now includes POST monitoring for the CR3 Pro RATER feature. Speed enhancements are also included that puts it within 50 seconds of the high speed NAND-X



    NEW 2 Version with Fake & Full POST Monitoring and CR3 Pro RATER Support. Also includes speed enhancements (2-3 minutes faster than JRP v1 !)

    The new TX J-R Programmer V2 has been created to cater to the budget conscious and coded to work hand in hand with the latest version of the J-Runner app.

    A third of the size of the TX NAND-X and optimized to run faster than any other USB-SPI PIC based tool (Example Speeds: Others average 16M read 7m 20s, JRP v2 average 16M read 3mins), this nifty tool can fully read/write NAND over SPI, program CoolRunners or any Xilinx based RGH device over USB and also able to program onboard sounds using the TX SONUS 360 !

    Complete with a CR JTAG cable so you simply plug 'n program without any soldering using the latest J-Runner App (needs to be at least Build 283). Also comes with NAND installation wires that have the connectors that are compatible with the NAND-X QSB boards. If you don't use the QSB's you can simply cut off the connectors and do a normal wires only install.

    The J-R Programmer V2 is also fully upgradeable and can be programmed using the Xecuter X360USB PRO Update app. Onboard LED's indicate Power and BootLoader mode.

    RED LED: Bootloader Mode (Switch to the left)
    GREEN LED: J-R Programmer Mode (Switch to the right)
    RED LED FLASHING: R/W Activity & POST Activity (Switch to the right)

    WARNING


    DO NOT - I REPEAT - DO NOT ATTEMPT TO WRITE ANY XSVF TIMING FILE TO YOUR CR3-PRO. They are pre-programmed. Writing any other timing file to the CR3-Pro without instruction from T-X will result in permanently damaging it

    **The new V3 QSB kits also allow Xell monitoring over SERIAL/UART using the latest version J-Runner software (NAND-X USB Update Cable Required - we designed the software so it could also use this cable without having to design a new one). The new V3 QSB's are also designed to be Plug n Play compatible with both J-R Programmer & NAND-X and offer the cleanest and most optimum RGH install possible.

    Here is a screenshot of the v3 QSB Xell Monitoring at work:



    Not only do you have multiple tuning settings available to you with the CR3 Pro but you are also able to monitor and tune the performance using the much talked about CR3 Pro RATER Feature. No longer do you scratch around in the dark looking for your best settings, we now completely eliminate the guess work. Just look at these glitch times on a Corona !

    CR3 Pro Rater - can you make your 360 slim scream PERFECTO! ?

    INFO


    The Nand read/write cable also has to be connected from JRP v2 to Nand QSB to allow the xbox to be powered off by J-Runner's Rater





    This is the FAKE POST version of RATER (Note that COR3+ is selected)



    CR3 Pro (Corona v3/v4) Solder Points:



    Installing the POSTFIX ADAPTER V2:

    First remove the heatsink using the XCLAMP Removal Tool. As you can see the heat thermal paste is old and probably poor quality. It may be a good idea to clean it up and use some good quality paste like Arctic Silver.







    R2C4 Fix

    Before hooking up any of the QSB's a resistor has been removed on Corona v3/v4 motherboards that needs replacing. You can simply solder a jumper across these points.



    Corona v3 Installation:

    Note: As you can see we have included the new CORONA POSTFIX ADAPTER V2. You are now able to not only bring out the POST points from underneath the CPU, but you can now select different POST_OUT lengths to fine tune the shape of the pulse giving you even more control over the speed and stability of your boot times. Length options are (in CM) 5/50/70/90/120





    Corona v4 Installation:

    Note: The picture shows the 4GB NAND R/W QSB - this is not included in the CR3 Pro kit.





    NOTE


    If using CR3 PRO Corona v3 with DemoN you need to remove the DemoN Kiosk (orange wire) to get RATER software remote power on feature. Simply remove the wire from the DemoN during RATER testing, when finished reconnect the wire.





    RATER is used to calculate the score (rate) the glitch you have installed. It uses Kiosk to power up your 360, then log POST to monitor boot status, counts reset up to the point the kernel boots fully, then logs the cycles taken, and then powers down the console. The cycle repeats for as long as you choose and scores the install.

    This is really fantastic for tweaking installs. CR3 PRO is so good it's hard to see the difference between greatness and true awesomeness RATER addresses this need.....

    INSTALL

    Installation is pretty similar to previous generation CoolRunners. There are however a few distinct differences.

    As usual we have designed QSB's to make the installs clean and superbly optimized.

    Solder Points

    • (D) blue wire to cpu_rst solder pad on bottom side POST QSB V2. Wire supplied is 55cm so you have more than enough length to cut different lengths to test best results. Our personal best is 10CM but it can differ - sometimes 8CM sometimes 12CM - we give you enough to play
    • (E) Short green wire to top side qsb, i2c SCL signal.
    • (F) Short brown wire to top side qsb, i2c SDA signal.
    • (K) Short orange wire to top side qsb, kiosk line for remote power on from JR PROGRAMMER V2
    • (5v) Short red wire, thick to top side qsb
    • (gnd) Longer black wire, thick to AV chassis.
    • (IO1) Short Yellow wire to POSTFIX ADAPTER V2 - 5 is the default point but you can try the variable lengths to fine tune your signal. Options are 5/50/70/90/120.


    DIP SWITCH SETTINGS

    The CR3 PRO has 8 dips.

    DIPS 1 to 8 are used to adjust timing and the cpu_rst wave shape.

    WARNING


    DO NOT - I REPEAT - DO NOT ATTEMPT TO WRITE ANY XSVF TIMING FILE TO YOUR CR3-PRO. They are pre-programmed. Writing any other timing file to the CR3-Pro without instruction from T-X will result in permanently damaging it




    First you need to find your center:

    IMPORTANT NOTE: When testing each cycle make sure you hook everything back up to the case (ODD, HDD, WIFI etc). If you dont do this your tuning will be wasted as when you hook everything back up it changes the shape of the pulse. Take your time and do it right and you will get a super fast booting RGH console

    1. For the first initial test ensure all DIPS OFF
    2. Don't install any ceramic caps yet. Set DIP 3 on and test.
    3. If it's close to optimal (what we call your center result) a RATER score of 7 or 8 will be expected (set number of reboots to 20 to get a good solid median)
    4. If not set DIP 4 and test...
    5. If not set DIP 5 and test...
    6. and so on with DIPS 6 then 1 and 2...
    7. We're basically circling out from what we know is optimum.

    So let's say you landed on DIP 4 as your center you will now want to tune up......

    Quote Originally Posted by Xecuter

    1. Add a ceramic cap to C10 with 1 DIP on (note a 1 cap per DIP cannot be higher than 50pf - anything higher will absorb the pulse)



    2. So start with a 10pf cap and test. Then 22pf then 30pf then 47pf
    3. You should now be getting a score of > 8.5
    4. Sometimes you may need to tweak even further than just 1 DIP and use a combo. So for example if you found DIP 3 and DIP 4 to be the same you can try 3.5. We achieve this be setting DIP 2 & 3 on with a large ceramic cap to delay and absorb the pulse (so 2 DIPS and a large cap equals 1.5 pulse time)
    5. So to achieve 3.5 set DIPS 2 & 3 on and test with caps 68pf, 82pf and 100pf.

    UNDERSTANDING FAKE POST CODES

    The POST codes can seem a bit daunting - like we said this isn't for amateurs. However, once you get used to using RATER it becomes reasonably straight forward so don't panic


    • 0x0B as last post means wrong timing or wrong install - 0x0B is like F2 or DA on fullpost, we cant say 100% if it's a complete wrong install, DEBUG LED in this case helps as for old RGH1/RGH2
    • 0x0C as last post means glitch too early or too deep - 0x0C is like DB-20-21 meaning you has to do a +1 on dip or change cap or make POST length longer (you can change to the 5/50/70/90/120 points on the POSTFIX ADAPTER V2)


    Can you imagine having to tweak this stuff without RATER?

    Now go and get that PERFECTO! rating (anything above >8.75)

    Xecuter testers have already done thousands of hours of testing to perfect this product. The following settings will work in 90% of scenarios.

    Corona: v3 and v4

    1. DIPS 3 = ON : 10 cm wire to (CPU_RESET) pad on the POST QSB V2 : NO ceramic cap installed to CR3 PRO : 5 POST POINT
    2. DIPS 4 = ON : 10 cm wire to (CPU_RESET) pad on the POST QSB V2 : NO ceramic cap installed to CR3 PRO : 5 POST POINT
    3. DIPS 3, 4 = ON : 10 cm wire to (CPU_RESET) pad on the POST QSB V2 : 100pf ceramic cap installed to CR3 PRO : 5 POST POINT
    4. DIPS 4 = ON : 10 cm wire to (SMC_RST) pad on the POST QSB V2 : 47pf ceramic cap installed to CR3 PRO : 50 POST POINT

    The CR3 PRO is the ultimate enthusiasts RGH tool, there are literally 1000's of possible setups for you to play with and RATER lets you see just how well your system is performing.
    Now let's see those RATER screenshots - If you can hit anything above 8.75 then you will achieve PERFECTO! My best is 9.4 on a Corona v3 - what's yours?

    Remember that there may be fake CR3 Pro & JR Programmer v2 out there – it goes without saying that they are cheap garbage and you should stay away. Every official Xecuter product has a serial code – you should claim ownership of the code at serial.xecuter.com

    Is it me or does the hardware seem very similar to the R-JTAG hardware? Am I wrong in assuming they share some design elements?

    The PCB design is very similar.

    I believe it has something to do with a "new" PCB/circuit design Xecuter is using - I could be wrong though.
