________ #RGLoader @ EFnet ________
***THIS IS A BETA RELEASE, NOT EVEN THE NFO IS FINISHED YET***
We had to issue another release to fix a dumb mistake with falcon rgh1, so we thought it would be a good idea to throw some new features in to
make it worth updating .
There has been another dynamic patch added that gives a pretty great boot speed increase (4-5 seconds faster). On a falcon jtag it measured 8 seconds
to bootanim in minimal mode, and 9.5 seconds in full mode.
We have added a library (RGLoader.xex) that runs after the kernel has been initialized and patches xam and other things. We will be adding more
features to this later, but copy the RGLoader.ini to the root of your hard drive to check out some new features.
- USB Fat32 drives show up in xbox neighborhood and you can launch games/xex from them.
(this means you can flash the image on, boot into minimal, and load the hdd files off a flash drive and copy them to the hard drive)
- Xbox Live DNS blocking
- Configurable default dashboard
MAKE SURE YOU UPDATE YOUR HDD FILESYSTEM FOLDER!
WARNING: There is a problem with some slims not running in minimal mode (NAND only mode). This means it is critical for you to
have a hdd and your files setup correctly. You will get E79 if you have this problem.
---Trinity RGH (minimal mode may not work)
===================Flexible Systemroot Patches==========================
(hard drive free installs!)
We have added a new feature to replace the E90 error that gets thrown when the hard drive is missing or files have been misnamed.
If any errors occur during its attempt to remap systemroot to the hard drive (wrong folder name, hdd unplugged, etc..) it will boot into
minimal NAND only mode where the devkit launcher dashboard will still boot.
This means that a hard drive is not neccesary to run RGLoader! This also means that you can just flash the image on and use minimal mode to copy
and setup the hard drive files for the full installation using xbox neighborhood.
It is not recommended to use the minimal mode, but it does work. It won't do things like load the metro dashboard. This is one way to detect if your in minimal mode or not. We will add an indicator in a future update.
=============JTAG BETA RELEASE - All but big block jasper =====================
We are now beta testing xenon and hdmi jtags!
When building a jtag image, it is best to supply an already jtagged NAND. This way any customizations
to your SMC will be kept and also if your crc does not match it will not matter. (this will not be neccesary in final release)
NOTE: When an already patched SMC is supplied, the builder will say (unable to patch). Just ignore this.
XELL HAS BEEN ADDED TO JTAG IMAGES!
=====================DUMMY KV Generation===========================
To protect you from getting your keyvaults banned, we have added an option to options.ini for creating a
temporary dummy KV. This sometimes introduces a lag when going to the dashboard and some xex caused by the
xbox live connection timeout. If this annoys you, just disable it in options.ini and we will get it fixed soon.
RGH2 Support has been added! Big thanks to Team-Xecuter for their research and work.
Dynamic patches have been added! Use options.ini to configure extra patches like NOFCRT or NOMU.
Big thanks to team-xecuter & xconsoles for donating a xenon jtag! Would not have been possible without this.
This builder still does not support big block jaspers. I know this sucks for a lot of jtags, so we will try to get this out ASAP.
---Things to come---
Jtag patch compiling at build time
Big block support.
\_____________|- RGLoader Runtime Patcher -|________________/
Adds extra patches for xam or any other exe/dll in memory. Gives more runtime access and control on patches. Loads rgloader.ini from the
hard drive root and also flash drive root.
Block_Live_Dns = Blocks xbox live DNS so you can't "phone home"
Map_USB_Mass = Makes all usb devices show up in xbox neighborhood
Default_Dashboard = Sets the default dashboard
Configure and place rgloader.ini onto the root of your hard drive (Partition 1), or usb thumb drive.
\_____________________|- Usage -|________________________/
AS OF 0v99 YOU NEED TO PROVIDE THE FILESYSTEM FILES --
Download a filesystem package and extract it into the same folder as this builder (merging filesystems and loaders)
Slims require fcrt.bin to play retail DVDs.
You will need .NET Framework 4 installed. May work with Mono.
Create a folder 'Filesystems' (don't forget the 's') on the xbox hard drive.
(This is where you will store the devkit system files since they won't all fit on a 16MB retail NAND.)
Copy the devkit files to a folder '14699-dev' (or 14719-dev for ver.14719) inside of 'Filesystems' on the HDD.
Put your nand next to the builder and name it "nand.bin".
Open the RGBuild Launcher and type in your CPU_Key and select your build options.
Click "RGBuilder" button to start the process.
Output will be next to this file named: Image._____.bin
----------- Prototype NAND Image Editor -----------
Click "Image Editor" button in the launcher, or run rgbuild.exe /ui to open the rgbuild UI, which is a prototype NAND image editor similar to 360 flash tool. The GUI is still in beta, but should be very functional. Please reports bugs to #rgloader!
\_____________________|- Known Bugs -|________________________/
-Occasionally slims/trinitys will freeze or reboot on the first boot attempt after a reflash.
This usually only happens the first time, if ever.
-Some slims won't boot into minimal mode.
-Slims require fcrt for retail dvds to run.

\_____________________|- GREETINGS -|_________________________/
RGLoader was started from the foundations left by others.
We hold no claim to researching everything used in rgloader.
It's thanks to the work of the amazing people below that we got anywhere:
tmbinc, almost every 360 tool owes you for your initial work. although
we may be -FAR- away from your intended goals, we'd still like to thank
you for your amazing work and the example you set for a good reverse engineerer.
The 360 Flash Tool team, thanks for your amazing tool which has
helped many people, many times over. My only gripe is that it's
not open, maybe one day.
GliGli, Tiros, and co., I'm sure anybody with a glitched console should
know the work you all put in. I hope recent releases won't deter you
from continuing to contribute to the scene with your work.
Last but not least: the donators who helped get me a glitched box
and CPLD, I will add the names to the nfo in the final release.
jsjar for graphics and dash skin.
m0j0j0_j0 for RGLauncher skin and icons.
Big thanks to cOz for tips and hints and for the work he has contributed
to the scene.
Thanks to Tortuga Cove for providing news updates and hosting services.
GliGli, Tiros, cOz, and co.
(many more to add)

GUI Fix for non-english OSes has been added! If you had any issues with the GUI crashing on start or pressing buttons please take a look at the fix:
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE YOUR OS AS ENGLISH PLEASE CHECK THIS FIX:

We've discovered that the Launcher GUI had issues with finding the .dll libraries so I threw together this fix. Copy the content and paste it into the rgloader folder, make sure you overwrite all the old files!
