Warning

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS CORONA RGH METHOD IS NOT TOO RELIABLE AND DOES NOT GLITCH AT THE BEST SPEEDS. THE HACK IS MADE AVAILABLE SO YOU CAN HAVE A PLAY WITH THIS YOURSELF AND SEE WHAT RESULTS YOU CAN ACHIEVE.

THIS IS WHY WE DESIGNED THE COOLRUNNER 3, IT HAS BEEN FINE TUNED USING A MUCH MORE ADVANCED DESIGN AND GLITCHES VERY RELIABLY AND VERY FAST. WE DO NOT OFFER ANY GUARANTEES OR SUPPORT WITH THIS CORONA METHOD.



To get this working on CoolRunner Rev A B or C you simply have to add a 48.000MHz crystal.

If you have Rev A or Rev B remember to remove C15.

It's a bit cheap and cheerful but here it is anyway.

The crystal has to be good quality - not some cheap crappy one as it will not work.

These work very well:

48.000MHz crystal wiring to the CoolRunner:
PIN 1,4 to 3v3
PIN 2 to GND
PIN 3 to B





We have included 6 files with different timings

tx_corona_0_2.xsvf
tx_corona_0_3.xsvf
tx_corona_1_2.xsvf
tx_corona_1_3.xsvf
tx_corona_2_2.xsvf
tx_corona_2_3.xsvf

The most important point is the CPU_RST - this will make the difference between a 30 second glitch and a 30 minute glitch.

You may want to try using the CPU RESET CLEANER addon that we released - it works very well with RGH1 and RGH2.

We also recommend you try the different wire layouts as per the original CoolRunner instructions.

CoolRunner 3 is in production right now - you will get to see how Slim glitching should be done ;)

Thanks to GliGli & Tiros for the original RGH exploit.

Wow those are some fluctuating boot times. Great work non the less. It's great that you guys made this available for the current hardware. But like you said it's not worth using the rev c.. just wait for the Coolrunner 3!

Another great job from a great team. Love the fact that i can try and use my current hardware for this, may not be the best but the TX guys are at least giving me an option.

Very good work. i've read nand with j-runner and nand-x v3, on my corona, but if i manual attempt to write .ecc with nandpro command on j-runner (on advance option) it write me with -w right? so ecc not boot. Where i wrong?
