DGX v1.1S On Sale Now !

After the phenomenal success of our DGX product, we listened to a great deal of feedback from our loyal userbase and have implimented some changes to the design to make the DGX perform even better than before – especially for Trinity boards.

DGX V1.1S change log:

  • Added 70cm 24WG POST_OUT Wire
  • Added a ceramic cap option (Point C29) between D and GND (same as CR3 Pro) – included an optional 10pf ceramic cap
  • Added a selectable 5ohm and 10ohm resistor to post_out (simple solder jumpers 1 Closed: 10ohm, 2 Closed: 5ohm, 3 Closed: 0ohm Default)
  • Added a a grounded IPEX socket (Point J1) for CPU_RST (10cm IPEX cable included)
  • Larger solder pads and stronger vias (C D E F 5v GND)
  • Removed JTAG pin header (Programming is not required – some users tried to program their DGX and damaged it)
  • Optimized code for enhanced Trinity performance. DGX 1.1 would boot the worst Trinity we had in 30 seconds (v1.0 booted in 2 minutes)
  • My preferred settings for Trinity were: D: 10cm IPEX to R4D4, C: 70cm 24AWG Wire , 10pf Cap Installed, 0ohm (Default)
  • My preferred settings for Corona were: D: 10cm IPEX to C5R11, C: Default wire, No Cap Installed, 10ohm

Remember that there may be fake DGX 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

C4E’s BurnerMAX Payload Tool v0.15

C4E is the man – this really is an amazingly cool app – serious top shelf hacking !

C4E’s BurnerMAX Payload Tool in association with Team Jungle & Team Xecuter

Official release of the BurnerMAX Payload Tool – works with most MTK chipset based DVD burners (Liteon etc)

– No need to flash burner firmware
– Delivers a realtime payload to increase capacity of DVD+R DL discs to support XGD3
– Support for stock iHas B, C, and D burners, all makes and models
– Support for many of the Liteon iHAS Clones
– Supports many other models such as ASUS, Samsung, Pioneer and many others
– Supports many Liteon and Samsung USB External Burners
– Supports many Liteon IDE Burners
– Supports any disc burning software – we recommend iMGBURN

How it Works

Load your favorite burning software. Insert your blank DVD+R DL disc. Send the BurnerMAX Payload. Re-select your drive in the burner software and the capacity will be increased.
You will need to send the BurnerMAX Payload evertime you insert a blank DVD+R DL disc.

Special vendor specific commands are sent to examine in realtime the drives custom registers, searching for specific DVD+R DL blank media capacity and layer capacity parameters.

If found these registers are modified using another set of vendor specific commands.

Due to the use of stock firmware and different burner makes and models, any settings the burner has play a more important role.

For iHas burners B, C and D, recommended settings are:

Force Hypertuning – Enabled
Online Hypertung – Disabled
Smartburn – Enabled
Overspeed – Enabled
OPC history – Do not clear

Results may vary depending on hardware and disc brand.

Verbatim DVD+R DL (Singapore Manufactured) Blank Discs are recommended for best results.

I would like to wish everyone a merry xmas and a happy new year – many more goodies are coming……

Thanks go to Team Jungle for their hard work and efforts in the development process.
Thanks also go to Team Xecuter for their support to this project.

I wish to dedicate BurnerMAX Payload Tool's release to the victims of the Connecticut school massacre and the bravery of the school teachers involved who saved many lives.
