How to make a LPT cable for reading and writing the Xbox 360's NAND

So, you have found a Xbox 360 with an exploitable dashboard or firmware version. Now you have to read the NAND and flash the hacked firmware back to it. This guide will cover the steps to making a solid, reliable LPT cable for doing such a job. This is not hard at all to do, it is just very time consuming. You will need about 1 hour of free time and the following tools and items


Soldering iron
Wire cutters
Wire stripper
Tape.... preferably electrical


Approximately 18 1/2 feet of 18 gauge solid wire
male connector
5x 100 Ohm 1/4 watt resistors
1x 1N914 switching diode

Optional Items

DB25 hood/cover
Shrink tubing
Approximately two foot of 1/4 split wire loom. your choice of color

Once you have everything you need, let's begin.

You are going to need 9 separate wires so cut your wire into 8 two foot sections. Your 9th section will be 2 1/2 feet.  Now strip 1/4 of the insulation off of each end of each wire. Lay your parts out for ease of access

Add flux to the pins indicated in the picture. Solder one of your wires to each pin and indicate at the end of the wire what color or number the pin is. I use a cut up shipping label. Make note that there will be two wires soldered to the purple connection marked GND. Your wire that is 2 1/2 feet is for the area marked with a purple line. This is the chassis ground.  The purpose for three grounds is to make sure that the data is not corrupted during a read or write.

To make your cable more sturdy, grab all the wires and give it a little twist. Next, tightly wrap electrical tape around the wires

Now solder a resistor to the blue, magenta, red, green, and orange end of each wire. Solder the diode at the end of the light blue wire. Make sure to solder the diode to where the black band is facing away from the wire.

You can stop here and consider the project done and proceed to reading or writing your NAND. If you want the cable to look a bit more professional, then try using the optional items to finish it.

XBOX Tutorials / Xbox 360 12 volt fan mod simplified

Xbox 360 12 volt fan mod

Want to try to avoid the RROD? Give this mod a go to have your fans running full blast all the time. I will warn you that this will make your Xbox a bit loud, but this mod is almost necessary to combat the shitty design flaws that Microsoft came up with for the cooling system. The motherboard does not need to come out. So if you are following my tutorial on how to disassemble a 360, stop before you do that.

What you will need:

Soldering Iron
About 1/2 of solid core wire (the thinner the better)
Knowledge of how to disassemble a 360 (tutorial CLICK HERE)

There is really only one step here and that is to connect the points as shown in the picture. The non-HDMI console a.k.a Xenon has two places that need bridged because the fans are individually controlled. For instance, if your cpu was running quite hot, the xbox would adjust only the fan running behind the cpu. The Falcon, Zephyr, Jasper, and Opus (although non-hdmi) is setup to where both fans run at the same speed.

XBOX Tutorials / Xbox 360 RROD permanent/temporary fix

Xbox 360 RROD permanent/temporary fix

So you have experienced the dreaded three red lights or otherwise known as RROD (Red Ring of Death). This guide will help you perform a method that can bring your Xbox back to life. Please keep in mind that this solution should be considered temporary. Sometimes this fix will work 10 minutes or it might work 10 years (doubtful). I have one Xbox that has been going for a year and a half strong doing this fix. It is just hit and miss with the success rate because it is unknown how long the solder will hold up under the GPU chip. If your console is under warranty (1-800-4-MY-XBOX) or you do not have any patience then DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS FIX.

Since the Xbox is classified as a child's toy, it is illegal to use leaded solder for the motherboard connections. Now tell me what child is going to open the Xbox up and chew on the motherboard??? As you may or may not know, non leaded solder melts at a higher temperature than leaded solder; however the non leaded solder is not as flexible so it cannot shrink and expand like leaded solder. Over time, the heating and cooling of the non leaded solder soon develops small stress cracks that over time, will lose connection with the motherboard.

Combine the solder factor along with the shitty cooling design and you have a catastrophe waiting to happen. If this fix works for you then that is awesome. If the fix only lasts for a short time then you are going to have to send it off to have the chips removed and re-balled. Shown below is a few RROD examples of what the underside of these chips can look like. The third photo is what the chips solder points are supposed to look like.

First off, you are going to have to disassemble the 360 console. If you do not know how, here is my GUIDE. Also since the console has overheated, you may want to consider doing the 12 volt fan mod located HERE

You are going to need the following items:

Isopropyl Alcohol 97% or better
Some kind of adhesive remover like Goo-Gone or WD-40
Arctic Silver 5 or Stars thermal paste
24 5mm flat washers
8 M5 x .8 x 10mm machine screws (Phillips pan-head)
Phillips screwdriver
A pick set or a small flat-head precision screwdriver
1/4 wide thin piece of plastic like a cut up credit card for spreading thermal paste
1/4 wrench, I use a screwdriver/nut driver tool that I lost the bits too.
Masking tape

Turn your motherboard upside down and you will be presented with the x-clamp. To remove these abominations takes quite a bit of patience. Eventually you will find a technique that best suits you to remove them. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO PRY X-CLAMPS LOOSE BY USING THE MOTHERBOARD AS A PRY POINT. The way I do it is insert my small flat-head as shown in the picture. I then gently pry in the direction of the arrow. I  GENTLY work my way around the post, using it as a pry-point, to eventually free the clip. I then repeat on the next clip and then the third clip. After the third clip is released, the x-clamp can easily slide off.

Once the x-clamp is off, repeat for the other one and then turn the motherboard over and gently pull the heat-sink off. You may have to use a little force to break it free from the old hardened thermal paste.

Now you see the mess that needs cleaned. Get out your adhesive remover and Q-tips. Get the end of a Q-tip wet. Apply enough so the thermal compound is coated well. Allow a minute or two for the adhesive remover to set in. Get the other end of the Q-tip wet and start rubbing on the thermal compound with a little amount of friction. The compound should start turning to goo, thus making it easier to remove. Remember to do this to both chips and both heat-sinks.

Once that is done, use your wrench to remove the posts on the bottom of both heat-sinks.

Grab your Isopropyl Alcohol and a Q-tips. Get a Q-tip wet but not soaked and clean the entire surface of the heat-sink and the dies that sit on top of the chips. The dies, when cleaned right will have a mirror shine as shown in the picture. If your dies have a reddish tint that may or may not fade to blue, then you have had some serious cooling problems with the Xbox that has caused the chip to discolor like that.

Apply a small amount of heat-sink compound as shown in the picture. Then use your thermal paste spreader to even out the compound over the die.

Now gather your hardware and set it out like below. Tear off four pieces of tape and place next to the hardware.

Now lets take a time out and take a close look at the washers. It is VERY important to know the difference between a finished side and an unfinished side. The left washer is showing the finished side, notice how smooth and shiny it is. Now look at the other washer. The unfinished side is not shiny and rough around the edges. Always make sure that the finished side of the washer is facing towards the motherboard.

Take a screw and set it on top of the sticky side of the tape. Add a washer remembering the previous red text. Repeat this process until you have all 8 of your screws setup. Take the set up hardware and insert the screws through the back of the motherboard. Apply pressure to the tape so that the screws will stay in place when flipping the motherboard back over.

Next, add two washers to each of the screws for the heat-sink you are installing....(red text). Once the washers are added, turn the motherboard to where it is standing up just enough that the washers do not fall off of the screw. Grab the appropriate heat-sink and align the holes to the screws. LIGHTLY hold the heat-sink against the screws while you use your Phillips head screwdriver to get the screws started. Once the screws are started, remove the tape and turn the motherboard over and repeat for the other heat-sink.

Turn the motherboard on its side and take a look at how close the washers are to those tiny circuit traces. If you were to use the unfinished side of the washer facing the motherboard, you run the risk of the jagged edges cutting into those traces thus resulting in a RROD. Tighten the screws in a criss-cross pattern to where the screw stops with no force. Try to make sure the washer is center when doing this step. Now tighten, in a criss-cross pattern, to where the heat-sink screws are firmly snug. Repeat for other heat-sink.

Now insert your motherboard into the chassis. Insert the R/F board (power button board) into the slot. Insert the A/V cables and hook up the power supply. You can install the fan and shroud but DO NOT HOOK UP THE FAN yet. Turn the Xbox on and you should still be greeted with the three red lights. Let the console run until it starts flashing two red lights. Once the two red lights are flashing, countdown 2 minutes and shut the console off. Let it cool off for about 30 minutes. Hook the fans up and turn it back on. The console should boot up!!

Now this totally blows. Good thing we all have backups right ;)

The popular private BitTorrent tracker bitGAMER has shut down its operation. The site’s owners mention that the legal climate has changed over the years and say that they are ready to move on with their lives. The founders have considered handing over ownership but chose not to share any sensitive user data with a third-party. The site’s 65,000 members, meanwhile, are looking for alternatives to resume their torrenting habits.

Founded in 2006, bitGAMER has become one of the larger private BitTorrent trackers dedicated to sharing games of all sorts.

What started out as a sister site of the Underground Gamer tracker turned into a serious player on its own, amassing 65,000 members over the years.

However, at the start of 2013 the site’s founders have decided to quit the game for good, leaving a large and active community behind. In a statement posted on the site’s homepage they explain that they are ready to move on to new things.

“We’ve reached the end of the ride. bitGAMER has been an amazingly fun ride, but all rides must come to an end,” the notice starts, also mentioning the “legal climate” as a factor to pull the plug.

“You all know that the legal climate has changed over the years, so we won’t bore you with that stuff. More importantly, the founders are simply ready to move on with their lives.”

The news caused some confusion among the site’s members as it came without prior warning. This also led to the inevitable rumors that there is something more to the shutdown, but the site’s founders explained in a follow up statement that this is certainly not the case.

“We didn’t give advance warning due to the nature of the site. We don’t want to give any advance notice in case someone was ready to kick someone’s door in at the last minute,” read a message posted in the IRC channel.

The founders further say that those who donated to the site in the last month can ask for a refund.

In an attempt to save the community the bitGAMER staff explored whether it was possible to hand over the reigns to new owners. However, they decided not to do so as that would require sharing details on all its members with a relatively unknown third-party.

“We tried to find new, trusted owners to carry the torch, but after years of attempts fell though, we had no choice but to close down the site. We wouldn’t be willing to transfer sensitive database data to a third-party that we’re not well acquainted with,” the founders explain.

But that doesn’t mean the tens of thousands of members will stop sharing.

There are already suggestions of re-spawning the bitGAMER community at new BitTorrent tracker, as is often the case when a large site dies. Other members will simply resume their game-sharing habits elsewhere. Invites for other private BitTorrent trackers are being shared by the dozens behind the scenes.

But for bitGAMER it’s Game Over.

Went and seen Blue October and Staind last night (thursday). This was my second time seeing Blue October and my fourth with Staind. As some of you may know Aaron Lewis is my idol LOL. So anytime I go see them, I get as close to the stage as possible. Also another great plus of the night was I got to see my sister whom I have not seen in over 10 years. Awesome time.

This show was pretty solid with a local band opening called Corvus. They were actually pretty damn good and I see good things for them. If you want to check them out here is their facebook page Luckily I liked the band because the chick next to me asked me what I thought of them. I said they were pretty good. Then she says that her dad is the bass player with the bushy red beard.... LOL.

After Corvus, Blue October took the stage. While I like this bands mainstream hits such as Hate Me, Into the Ocean, and Say it, I am mixed about the other songs. You can tell the lead singer has some anger issues by the words to some of his songs. But he puts them in there with emotion. Check out Blue October here: . give the songs I listed above a listen.

Up next was the band I came to see. With this being my fourth time seeing Staind, me and my fiancee decided to take our teenage nephew who absolutely loves Aaron Lewis and wants to do what this man can do. You can see the shit eatin grin in one of the pics LOL. He ended up catching a guitar pick from him. For those of you who have only heard of a few Staind songs are probably familiar with Outside, Its Been a While, and Right Here(.... and many more LOL). Let me tell you, their new stuff is nothing like the artsy fartsy stuff they have been releasing.... these guys went back to their roots and are hardcore. Give their new album a listen. When they were playing the hard shit mosh pits broke out. The next thing I know is my fiancee is like "here hold my coat!!" and she runs right into the middle of the mosh pit and starts moshing..... LOL crazy woman but I lover her. Oh and if you have not heard of Staind then a simple YouTube search will produce a massive amount of results :)

For some odd reason, this pic is my most favorite of all the ones I took. The way the blue is shining, and his facial emotions combined with the slight blurriness.

I would like to hear about your concert experiences and possibly see some pics.
