BREAKING !! Sept , 2012: FULL RGH2 Running on Corona 4G (All boards defeated !!)
After days of discussion on the dayton360mods
forums, we have pasted all the relevant information and developed a set of software tools (sdtool) that will allow you to boot RGH2 on your Corona 4G board today !!
The tools will make the process very simple and you dont have to mess with Winhex nor nandpro nor ecc data conversion, the sdtools does it all. Please note we are not taking credit for the procedure, we only take the steps and make software tools to make it easy and clear (at least is what we think).
Edson Dario has made a Step by Step tutorial. Please note this tutorial is rated C, only for those modders who know what they do, if you dont feel confortable reading then you can wait till other people do a more noob friendly tutorial.
Many thanks to c0z for the guidance. And all other folks over dayton360mods.

On another topic but related, we are producing our own version of the SD-Nand programmer, we will call it the Maximus SDTOOL to match our software tool name. And hell will be cheap too !!. We will post pictures very very soon.
July 2012: Stinger 3 running on Corona !!
Thanks to Team xecuter who released free DIY method for corona we have adapted their information to use Stinger V3. All you need is a 48MHZ oscilator 3.3volts. A good part number can be this
About the Boot time we must say its very good, we have reached boot times of 15 seconds or less doing some tweaks on the install.
It is pad by pad compatible with old Stinger 2 model, it uses the same .jed or .xsvf files as previous version, the improvements are:
a) Super fast install on Slim consoles (using the new Quicksolder Slim Kit). Check the Tutorial Here
b) Ultra fast booting, success at the very first try using the above tutorial recommendations
c) Incorporate onboard capacitors for stubborn Phats

.XSVF CPLD CONNECTIONS AND OPERATION
Follow instructions for USB install.
the following connections from the LPC2148
to the Xilinx device
Flash a .xsvf file, created by
Impact, to cpld:
General XSVF notes: LPT is not supported for this
Requires additional connections
from LPC2148 to the Xilinx jtag connector.
The Xilinx Impact tool is used to create
.xsvf files. The Xilinx Impact software
records/redirects cpld operations into a
binary file (.xsvf) that can be
by Nandpro. IE: Nandpro does not flash .jed
files, but .jed files
may be directly
converted to .xsvf by Impact.
Xilinx Impact tool for more information.
