I understood that.
My question is: Has anyone else done it? Cygnos has a microprocessor on it and it actively connects to the computer through usb and controls that 16mb nand. It's not a passive method like switching the ce pin's between nands. What makes you so sure that just replacing the nand will work? Switching and dual booting might be working but I believe that flashing operations through the cygnos will not! So you must use the jtag interface and an external usb spi flasher or an lpt cable again to read and write the nands!
Long story short, I might give my 50 to 75 bucks for just a very expensive nand switch! A nand switch I could do myself using simple and cheap components. But if the package also includes a 512Mb/10 Minutes flasher then it worths my $$$.
So, has anyone done it to confirm it works both as a dual boot solution and as a flasher?
I personally dont think replacing the 512mb nand on the cygnos360v2 would work because like you said it does have a controller on it and if it was that easy they would have done that design in the revision F instead of making the revision F only a reader writer. But I am not sure. I cant be certain until someone tries it.
I know that hardware wise switching the 512mb chip on your xbox360 motherboard will work and changing the resistors next to it to use the 16mb nand but the whole other issue is getting the 512mb nand dump to work on the 16mb nand. If you wanted to do it I am sure it can be done but I am not sure how to go about it.
As far as older versions, the cygnos360v1 does not have a flasher. you would have to lift the CE pin or cut the trace on the motherboard and use a Infectious or SPI Flasher with it. The Cygnos360v1 also does not reset the Southbridge when switching from nand to nand. The Cygnos360v1 is like the nandwich.This post has been edited by Antman1: Oct 18 2011, 02:50 PM
