    A Matrix Glitcher is a little less than an Ace v3.

    The same kind of thing happened here in Australia, now we have GST (10%) added on to overseas purchases through eBay and Ali Express etc.

    $8 is a bit steep though.

    Yeah, another solution would be to find someone in UK or Germany to act as a middleman. Civilian gifts don't get the fees applied.

    @Spawn @Tupakaveli I just finished my first custom sound mod with just a Teensy 2.0 & the python script on a broken corona v4( won't boot but the sounds still work).
    Everything works pretty good and after a few little tweaks on the python script I have it running on windows.

    I had to change
    Code:
    parser_read = subparsers.add_parser('read', help='Dumps device')
    parser_read.add_argument('file', nargs=1, type=argparse.FileType('w'), help='The file to dump to')
    parser_write = subparsers.add_parser('write', help='Writes device')
    parser_write.add_argument('file', nargs=1, type=argparse.FileType('r'), help='The file to write to the device')
    to this to fix the problem of it using the windows line ending.
    Code:
    parser_read = subparsers.add_parser('read', help='Dumps device')
    parser_read.add_argument('file', nargs=1, type=argparse.FileType('wb'), help='The file to dump to')
    parser_write = subparsers.add_parser('write', help='Writes device')
    parser_write.add_argument('file', nargs=1, type=argparse.FileType('rb'), help='The file to write to the device')
    After I got that fixed my dumps were still to big so I changed
    Code:
    ISD2100 = [[0x11, "ISD2130", 0x20000], [0x10, "ISD2115A", 0x10000], [0x01, "ISD2110A", 0xB000]]
    to
    Code:
    ISD2100 = [[0x11, "ISD2130", 0x20000], [0x10, "ISD2115A", 0xB000], [0x01, "ISD2110A", 0xB000]]
    I don't know if I needed to do this but it's working :triumphant:
    Now I can write a sound file from the j runner sounds folder then read it back and they are identical.

    That's really cool, I'm still surprised it's possible with a Teensy lol.

    What's wrong with the Corona? If it's RDOD did you check the secondary error code?

    I was really surprised how easy it was once I got the script working on Windows. I just ordered a cheap Teensy from ebay & it didn't show up on time so I got it for half price so this turned out to be about a $5 project. Having a Teensy around may come in handy sometimes too.

    The Corona is one that someone tried to install a glitch chip & lifted some pads. It can probably be fixed if I would just take the time to find ways to patch it back together. It doesn't get any lights & the fan doesn't even try to start it makes the button sounds and that's it :(

    Ah that sucks. Probably not worth the effort, 360s are so cheap these days.

    If someone tried to glitch it then it probably doesn't even have the retail NAND on it. I would guess Xell is written to the first 50 blocks.

    Yeah, it was free & it worked for my test so I'm not too upset.

    @pinky Is this something you would want to make a guide about? I can't believe that it's not better known.

    I have been looking at the python script & keep thinking about making an app, something like sonus 360 but open source. It looks like it could be done but I need to find the info on making the bin from the wav files. At this point with the 360 I don't know if it would even get used lol

    Just to play around & try learning a little about working with usb devices I started porting the python script to c# using libusbdotnet to communicate with the Teensy. After some reading & a few silly mistakes I was able to get everything working.
    I haven't messed with creating the bins because it's easy enough to use J runner for that & I don't know if it's worth the time.
    Here is a little gui I have been playing around with. It needs some work & isn't very useful anymore but I'll probably go ahead & post it once I'm happy with everything.
