Hi, I bought a jtag xbox that was dash 12625. It worked fine with no issue. I wanted dashlaunch to be able to boot freestyle dash directly so I flashed freeboot with jtag tool using flash360.

the dash version was 12611, I had several warnings that the files were mismatched, following forum suggestions I ignored them. Of course, after power cycling I was greeted with a 30 second delay RROD. My question is, can I recover from this and if so- what are the exact steps to do so? thank

When it happened there wasn't a dashlaunch for it I don't believe. -2 weeks ago? Either way, 30 second delay and then rrod occurs. I assume this is strictly a failed flash issue and nothing to do with the common rrod-overheat issue?

I don't believe xell is on it, no matter how I turn it on it goes straight to _ green blinking light for approx: 30 seconds then rrod. The reason I ask is I want to make sure it's worth buying the Nand-X and is repairable in doing so.

Well i don't know much about your Jtag like who did it or it's history if you didn't open it i would say it sounds like a bad flash, ether way buddy its still worth your while getting a Nand X as its always handy to have if you have a Jtag.
Like now as you can see the only way to write to your nand now is by hooking straight up to your nand and if you made a backup of the nand with dash 12625 before you flash it with 12611 then you can write that back if you didn't make a backup then use the original nand and key you got with the Jtag and write that back.

Jonny is in my opion dead on. 9 out of ten its a bad flash. If it was working before the flash reflash your original nand or last know freeboot image and take it from there. Keep in mind this is assuming your console has no rrod history. Also building an ltp would save you a little coin.

Eh, money isn't the issue. It's technical skill. I haven't worked inside an xbox since the original and it was putting in a xecutor chip xD . If anyone actually was to offer me service of fixing it for me i'd be more then willing to accept. If not, I suppose i'll take the plunge into the icy water

Its easy peasy.... As long as you have decent soldering skills & Jtag tool is amazing .
I'm not sure if I do, and as our friend said- the person who sold me the jtag, I am unsure of what exactly they did as far as method- Regardless if it's rrod or not, it will read the nand- show up in jtag tool and I can flash the nand back presumably? Please correct me if I am wrong in any way.

I went with

XC17549 Xecuter NAND-X $39.95 on xconsoles.com website. Hopefully it's the complete kit as well. thanks for the input, rather try this then pay 100 bux to some guy who might make it worse :p

So, me and my friend who is pro at soldering spent about 5 hours trying to get the 360 to detect in jtag tool/nandpro . All we got is could not detect flash controller. We tried and exausted all options : QSB, pin header and finally direct to the board wires solder.. nothing nothing and nothing..

then we tried doing the jtag wiring as well, still nothing..

Any ideas? we exausted all options.. all I can think of is there is some special way we have to do it since it was jtagged before and is 0022 rrod currently..

Ignore the RRoD - it's NOT a hardware fault. If it's taking 30 seconds to RRoD it's the image at fault.

What guide are you following to dump the NAND? Take a pic of your soldering/setup and let us have a look.

Did you know you need the PSU connected to the console for this?

Yes psu/component cables connected entire time. Here is the final solder appearance, hopefully the pictures suffice..

I need to see clearer images of J1D2 and J2D2 - your HTC cameraphone doesn't do the job unless you have a macro-zoom facility. Clarity is better than zoom - take the image further away so it's in focus!

I will say that from the blurred images you've posted, the above two areas look VERY dodgy...
