Hello,
I started to RGH my Falcon but a problem occured :frown: . I have done a Jasper successfully in the past.
After soldering I started flashing with NAND-X and I got "Error reading block 1C2" while reading NAND during both first and second tries. After that I tried once more and then it started showing the
"Flash Config: 0x00000000
Can not Continue
Version: 03"
I returned to the forum to check possible problems, so I followed the steps for each solution.
A. http://www.forums.team-xecuter.com/showthread.php?t=95286
Started here.
B. Done Martin C troubleshooting and got the following values.
http://team-xecuter.com/forums/showthread.php?t=77908
1. 3.3V
2. 3.3V
3. 0V
4. 0.2V
5. 3V
6. 0V
So there is something wrong with points 1 and 3.
C. I resolder every point with extra flux to prevent QSB lift problems.
D. I read from some users that if there are heavy power load devices on the same plug with the xbox they might produce block reading errors.
E. My console doesn't power up so it is possible a STBY_CLK resistor failure but I did check it and gives 33 Ohm all the way up to coolrunner point B(or C, I cannot remember) as the rest of the wirings were ok from QSB till Coolrunner C.
Excuse me and correct me if I missunderstood some point.
Your help will be highly apreciated :)

p.s. are there any blueprints with the falcon motherboard resistance and voltage values so I can check whats is wrong?











Cheers!

I also noticed a diode that I could not determine if it was a damaged diode or just some dirt because it fell of and the mobo seems clean like there was nothing soldered to its connections.

This is where you should have stopped and asked/searched.

You have a bad block at 1C2 more than likely. J-Runner would have advised you of this when it compared NANDs.

Replace the Diode and report back.

Thank you for your fast reply.

I went to the lab again and did nothing but check the voltages and the resistance. I also decided that the diode was not installed from the beginning on the mobo (it was just dirt) so I did not try to solder a LED as the schematics indicated.


To clarify this, the diodes points are as shown on the above image, and it doesn't seem that there was an LED that was burned out.

Then I checked with the microscope if there were any broken connections on the soldered parts and get the voltages.








this is the 33 ohm resistor that seems fine.







So in the end I saw that the voltages matched with Martins so I decided to power up, and it did. I don't know why this happened because I haven't changed anything from yesterday ???

So I started the flashing. Here is the log.

As I read on other posts if the "Error: 250 reading block 1C2" occurs it is not a problem because it is not one of the first 50 block so I proceeded.

After I wrote the ECC I tried to boot to XELL but it seems like it is trying to glitch (green led on CR blinks) but it is not booting XELL in the end.

I tried different XVSF RGH2 types (B,C,Falcon) but with no solution (I have 14719 dash). Tried to powerup with eject and power button but no difference.

That's all for the moment, any ideas?
Cheers!

Cool - thinking about it, there is no diode there. Didn't have a board at hand to check.

You need to play with CPU_RST wire location and CPU_RST cleaner settings (as well as timing).

By "play with CPU_RST wire location" you mean change the path the wire follows or the soldering point?
Can I replace my purple wire withe the white shielded that was with NAND-X, and place it at the edge of the mobo?
Finaly the "CPU_RST cleaner settings" you mention, is something that can be done only if I have the "CPU_RST Cleaner"?

Thank you Slayertex I haven't realized this, I will rewire and report.

Report:
Done the RGH2 wiring, removed one QSB and solder on mobo, added shielded wire but,
Error 0x00000000 hit again.
I checked the continuity of the wiring and the 33ohm resistor and seems fine. My option now is to go to the lab again because the solder iron at home is crap. I will resolder everything and hope that something will come out.





My sh*tty iron made me lose one of the pads on CR, but I scrached the board and solder on the wire. I tested it and there is continuity so there is no problem from that. I also applied the default RGH2 settings on the CR capacitor and jumper.

Enough for today I hope there is better luck tomorrow.

When attempting to do RGH2 on a falcon you really should use the CPU_RST Cleaner it will make life a hell of a lot easier, without you might be there for days trying to get the falcon to glitch, if you get it to glitch at all.
especially when using a clone CR
