1- Reset of southbridge is made by software... you can switch the NANDS without UNPLUG the power...
2- The UNPLUG is necessary (at the moment) only when you need to READ/FLASH the nands with the programmers... (a procedure that you do I think 2 times every months when is necessary to change the FW inside the NANDS) ... This is also a momentary issue that is already solved... an update will be released in few days.
3- The FCC cable is necessary ONLY when you want to UPDATE the SQUIRT FIRMWARE (JTAG) or the NANDs contents (SPI)... is not necessary at all to keep connected the PROGRAMMER... (I remember that TRIDENT etc need also a programmer)
about previous posts:
1- Cygnos is out of production since years! so you are talking about something that NO BODY can find anymore (or better maybe they can find it in some RARE shops for a HIGH price)
2- Cygnos cost about 4 times a SQUIRT
3- Cygnos need to install a really bad PCB outside the console when is 100% unnecessary... but if people want a BIG BLACK PCB with a switch that is like a 30 years old switch... is not a problem..
4- Cygnos NEED a RGH solution... so MORE MONEY... squirt is ALL IN ONE INTEGRATED... so for only 20 USD you have RGH, DUAL NAND, SWITCH and all what you want...
HAHA about SQUIRT... yes we like SQUIRT EVERYWHERE ... we work in a videogames FUNNY market... not sure in a church and we LIKE to joke EVER
About the VIDEO interpretation, now you know what we mean about "FIRST IN THE WORLD"
but if you insist to don't understand our point of view... then we note this and next time we will be more "specific".
Then finally a TECHNICAL NOTE... CYGNOS use an FPGA IC, this IC is enough to overwrite WITHOUT PROBLEMS the CHIP SELECT... with a XILINX is not so "obvious"...
Of course this is a technical thing that only developers know...
The important thing of SQUIRT is offer:
- A dual nand software on RGH modchip
- A cheaper NAND PCB easy to installed
- Any switch or things to install outside the console
- A small flat cable that allow to program the NANDS and update the JTAG RGH code if needed...
all this with few BUCKS then a standard RGH CHIP...
So guys let us know who want to TRY and REVIEW our solution
"1. does having the OSC 48Mhz onboard really make it cornoa hardware ready? good luck with that "
I am a very lucky person in life...
better stop here this point
