Notice to Matrix Freedom Light Customers!


Due to a small production mistake a small batch of FREEDOM LIGHT for 16D4S was manufactured using a bigger memory chipset intended to be used for our next 16D5S product.

The only issue is that JungleFlasher does not recognize this bigger memory chipset, so we prepared a patch to enable Jungleflasher to correctly recognize and read/program this small production lot of Freedom Light PCB.


If you are having one of these boards, you will see the following error while attempting to identify it into JungleFlasher:


To fix it simply download the following patch, unzip into Jungleflasher v0.1.92 Beta (304) folder and run it:

Patch for Jungleflasher v0.1.92 Beta (304) Windows XP: DOWNLOAD HERE!  

Patch for Jungleflasher v0.1.92 Beta (304) Windows Vista/7: DOWNLOAD HERE!  


Proceed using Jungleflasher as normal, and your Freedom Light will be correctly recognized:

If needed, full instructions are inside the .ZIP files!

Matrix Freedom Light for 16D4S, and coming Matrix Freedom 1175 board replacement for 16D5S.


Regarding the 16D5S drives, we are inching to the end of the testing and engineering road.

There has been a bunch of issues that needed to be taken care of, now all of this seems solved and we are ready to proceed to the final prototype and testing of the board and the key extractor system.


Secondly, due to huge request, we are manufacturing some cheaper 16D4S replacement boards, renamed Freedom Light.

The Freedom Light does not have the tray cable fixed on board, but it comes with the double option to solder the cable directly on board of the Freedom Light or to use the optional solder less kit. Installers will be free to solder the cable as we know they prefer to do so, while end user can use the solder less kit to install without need of soldering tools.



More information are available on the Matrix Freedom PCB page HERE.

Installation procedure is same as Matrix Freedom PCB and is available in the download section of the website, HERE.

The Solder Diagram for the wires (in case you choose not to use the solder less kit), is available HERE.


Stay tuned for the coming release of the 16D5S drives solution, the MATRIX FREEDOM 1175!

Matrix Glitcher V2 Rev.C officially supports Corona V2.


Well, since production of the new reader is about to start we might as well announce it :


Matrix Glitcher V2 Rev.C officially supports Corona V2.


A new Nand reader/writer had to be developed to interface to the 4GB Corona motherboard due to the new phison chip and the differences in the communication protocol.


Installation difficulty is about the same as the old Nand SPI reader (even though the pads are slightly closer together, installers will have the choice to use a quick solder board or directly solder wires to the motherboard).


One small note regarding nand dumps : V2 nand dumps don't have ECC bytes (this is by design, since they are stripped by the phison controller which also takes care of blocks remapping and a bunch of other stuff), so scripts that expect them to be present might need to be modified (either that or they need to be added after the nand has been dumped).

The final nand reader software will automatically add/remove ECC bytes to the nand image as to try to preserve compatibility with existing software as much as possible.

Official Video Release of coming Freedom 1175 Board Replacement


Before we begin, some notes regarding the 16D5S drives and why we made the choices that we made :

First of all, the SPI eeprom is locked just like in the old drives and the WP pad is connected to GND, thus making it impossible to erase/rewrite.


Why the old Geremia/kamikaze style method is not feasible in the 16D5S drives :

The area were the WP wire can be cut is less than 1mm in length and the WP bonding wire runs parallel to the DO bonding wire with around 0.1mm of separation between them.

Cutting the WP wire without damaging the DO wire is doable when the chip is decapped and under a good microscope but we can't see any way where someone can do this without some serious lab instruments.

For this reasons we have developed a replacement PCB, similar to our previous Freedom replacement PCB but with some additional hardware needed to cope with the enhanced crypto requirements in the 16D5S firmware.

This PCB will replace the original drive PCB and work on any unmodded Xbox360 (including the 4GB V2 coronas and those with dashboard 15572+ ).

The firmware is finished and stable and has all the features you would expect :

stealth, XGD3, all titles work (basically everything iXtreme 3.0 has) plus some additional features that we are testing and considering for inclusion in the final release.




The new video which we quickly threw together first shows a 16D5S drive connected to a corona motherboard (check the marking in the IC and the tracks going to the SATA connector to see that it really is a 16D5S drive).

An original game is already inside (drive is upside down to show the PCB) and it is booted to show that the drive is married to the Xbox motherboard.

The drive is then swapped with another one with the Matrix replacement PCB already installed, and a few backups are booted to show it working on the same motherboard.

Additional videos will be released shortly, but for the moment being our time is better spent in development than in movie making ;-).


This one was mainly done due to the leaked video, to show our drive working without all the programming/debugging hardware that is normally connected to the drives during the development stage.



Stay tuned for more exciting news in the near future!

Leaked 1775 Proof of Concept Video.


As a first official announcement after the video showing our proprietary CFW running back-ups on the 1175 drive leaked, we have the following to say:

1) The aforementioned video is a POC (Proof of Concept), which should not be disclosed to the general public. This video is REAL.
2) Our CFW is currently fully working, is  “stealth” on Live, and has all the features of Ixtreme plus some more goodies regarding AP25 sector management.

Since the video has been leaked, we might consider it “official” now. We are now going to make another one, more detailed, in order to clear up any doubts. Stay tuned!

Matrix GLitcher II Revision C.


We are releasing today the Matrix Glitcher II Revision C, adding full support and compatibility for 250 GB Corona consoles.

As with the previous version the Matrix GLitcher II is still a complete plug and play solution. No need to program it before use, simply install it and select the correct switch combination for your console.

Additionally, because we discovered than Glitching the Corona needs the timing to be extremely precise, we also added a new configuration procedure using the onboard switches.

User installing the Matrix Glitcher II Revision C into a Corona will now have the possibility to test different timings to find the one that will give them the best Glitch times on the console, and all of this without need of reprogramming.

Here is the new Switch Table Settings:

Announcing the MATRIX TRIDENT.


We are proud to announce the MATRIX TRIDENT (PSI), the first TRIPLE NAND solution available for Xbox360.


The TRIDENT will transform your Xbox360 16 MB NAND in 3 independent 16 MB banks that can be read and write with any available SPI reader/writer solution using software tools like Nandpro 2.0 and Nandpro 3.0.


The trident can work together with any Glitcher solution present in the market.

A flat cable is supplied to directly connect it to the Matrix GLitcher II, for enhanced performances.


It features a quick solder board solution for the Trinity slim  and an external switch with led indicators to quickly choose which one of the THREE banks of NAND to use.

With the Matrix Trident you can assign one bank to the Original NAND, the second bank to boot a modified dashboard and the third NAND bank to boot Xell or a second dashboard.


Whether you use it for fun or for hacking purposes, the Trident is going to be the tool of choice to add extra NAND capacity to your Xbox360.






- Allows for the use of 3 Independent banks of NAND on the Xbox 360.

- No need to cut any tracks on the Xbox360 motherboard.

- Extenal switch to quickly change among the 3 NANDs

- Compatible with every glitching solution present in the market, including Matrix Glitcher II.

Announcing the Matrix Glitcher II


We are proud to announce the availability of the Matrix Glitcher II.

Thanks to the hundreds of feedbacks we received from our distributors and testers around the world, we decided to release an updated version of the Matrix Glitcher.


Some  of the new features include:


·          Preprogrammed with a brand new and advanced Matrix Glitching code.

·          Compatible with all Xbox360 SLIM and FAT models (except Corona and Xenon motherboard)

·          On board switch to quickly select console type and model.

·          Future-proof updateable with external USB programmer (not included).

·          After-installation fine tuning of glitch timings to better fit each different console (external USB programmer needed)

·          Unique Serial code identification for each Glitcher II verifiable online.


By connecting the GLitcher II to a PC (using the same external programmer as the one used in the Matrix Freedom PCB), the installer will be able to cycle through 7 different timings for each console models of the Fat Xbox360 and 3 different timings settings for the Slim Xbox360.

This will allow the installers to fine tune the Glitcher II to the best available settings for each console.


More features will be given with future software releases, to enable an even more deep interaction of the Matrix Glitcher II with your Xbox360. 




Goods are in stock and already shipping to our official resellers. You can find the nearest one to you on our Resellers page.




Installation Diagrams are already available here.  A small tutorial on the use of the External Programmer to connect the Matrix Glitcher II to the PC and how to use the “Fine Tuning” feature will be available shortly.


Hope you all will enjoy this new product as much as we enjoyed developing it.

Matrix Glitcher boot times on Slim Xbox360.


A very smart guy who goes by the nick “ameel” discovered an interesting and unusual solution to the unreliable boot times problem that all current glitching solutions suffer from on slim Xbox 360s.


The problem with glitching slim consoles resides in the need to send a glitch signal with some very precise parameters that are hard to control on the simple XC2C64A cpld, especially due to the higher clock frequency and the currently used injection point.

Increasing the wire length "fixes" this problem probably due to the added distortion, ringing, etc. that is added to the glitching signal. This will have to be analyzed in more details with the right equipment.
For the moment being, what's important is that it's a possible fix that many people seems to be very happy with, so we give our warm congratulations to “ameel” for this ingenuous solution!
Original thread available here:


For everyone installing a Matrix Glicher in a Slim Xbox360, simply make the wire for PAD A of a length of between 25-30 cm.

Everything else is unchanged.

Matrix Glitcher copies issues.


We are receiving tons of e-Mail complaining about the presence of Matrix Glitcher copies present in the market.

Many of these copies are even made with re-marked Xilinx parts. Unfortunately there is nothing we can really do at the moment except to help you to identify the copies.

What you CAN do, to be sure to purchase an original product, is to purchase only from our official reseller list and to avoid websites like Rambogames and Dealextreme that are offering cheap imitations.


We do stand 100% behind the quality of our products, and we do take full responsibility and offer a full exchange program for any faulty piece, but we cannot take responsibility for the issues with the copies.

We are back.

After several years since we gave our last contribution to the scene we decided that it was time to come back as we think that there is still lot of work to be done to bring innovation and quality in the console market.
After all we do still love this job too much : ).

A big difference from the past will be that we are not going to focus anymore on a single console, but we are going to spread our product line across all the consoles available on the market.

Our first product is going to be based on the GliGli hack. Maybe many do not fully realize it, but this guy made a hell of an Engineering work to get to that result and I personally want to congratulate him for having found something that is worth to be called an “Hack” !

To celebrate him and our comeback we decided to call this first new product “The Matrix Glitcher”.

If you are asking yourself why, you should remember “The Matrix” movie:

Trinity: A déjà vu is usually a glitch in the Matrix. It happens when they change something.

So, are you ready for the change?
