1  General / XboxHacker Site Discussion / Xbox One sections on: May 21, 2013, 11:30:23 PM
The next generation Xbox has finally been announced! With it comes a brand new security architecture to analyze and eventually break. Grin
Does XboxHacker have plans to stick around for the next generation? If so, can sections be made?

Just to elaborate on xb0b's answer:

If you convert the first 4 bytes of the status code from hex to decimal you will get the previous dash version and the failed update dash version. These bytes happen to convert to 15574 --> 16203

Here is the official definition:
typedef struct _UPDATE_STATUS_CODE {
  USHORT VersionOld; // 0x00-0x02
  USHORT VersionNew; // 0x02-0x04
  UCHAR Area : 4; // 0x04-0x05
  UCHAR StorageDevice : 4; // 0x04-0x05
  UCHAR Downloaded : 1; // 0x05-0x06
  UCHAR Reserved : 6; // 0x05-0x06
  UCHAR Instrumentation : 1; // 0x05-0x06
  UCHAR InternalState; // 0x06-0x07
  UCHAR ListIndex; // 0x07-0x08
  UINT OperationResult; // 0x08-0x0C
}; // 0x0C

Thank you for the response Eaton. I did not even give a thought to it being setup by default to run like that. However, even if it already runs unsigned games and apps, Don't i need a DVD key to install dvd drive? suppose I can just hook one up and see what happens.

You can use an app called HvxDump to get it.
It will dump the KV for you. 0x100 into the file for 0x10 bytes is your DVD key.

Why would you want to JTAG it? As a developer box it is already capable of running homebrew and custom software.
It is miles better than the RGH/JTAG hack because you don't need to perform any hardware mods to make it run hacked code.

Leave it be, try to get a case for it, and you will have a nice devkit. Wink

I don't think it is wise to use solid-state disks on this console.
Think about it, the Nt OS was not optimized for SSDs until Windows 7. The Xbox 360 OS was developed before Windows Vista came out.
Using an SSD on an unoptimized OS (no TRIM, etc) may cause the lifespan of the device to degrade faster than it normally would. I am not sure if you will exactly get the performance increases you are expecting, either.

What happened exactly? Don't see any announcement or anything about the prolonged downtime.
10  Xbox 360 / Tech Support 360 / Re: I messed up my 250 GB Slim Hard Drive, Its not detectable anymore... on: October 14, 2012, 06:12:47 PM
You formatted it as a USB device.
The underlying FAT32 boot sector destroyed the security sector.
This drive will never work in an unmodified console again. Feel free to use it on a JTAG/RGH/XDK or even a computer.
11  Research & Technical XboxHacking (Xbox 360) / Hard Disk / Re: 500GB WD HDD - Upgrade later? on: October 05, 2012, 11:45:17 PM
If you were to do that, the file system would not be browsable. The allocation table of the file system will need to be updated if you change your SS.
I created a tool that will allow you to fix this problem. In the event of a 500GB HDD release, feel free to PM me here and I can help you. Smiley

The drive-specific Security Sector must be missing or corrupted.
You can't really fix this unless you made a backup of it in the past. Each SS is unique to each disk and is signed to prevent modification.
13  Research & Technical XboxHacking (Xbox 360) / Software (TECHNICAL) / Re: xebuild patches need help on: August 21, 2012, 06:01:05 PM
I try to open a compiled freeboot patch any patch. I get a error window popup.

Failed to read patch file.
Patch file: cd 9230.bin is not a valid size.

Running windows 7 32bit.


That is a bootloader not a patch?

I thought it was a patch for the trinity bootloader? Not the bootloader itself.
I still get an error when opening patches_trinity.bin

Failed to read patch file.
Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection.
Parameter name: StartIndex

Appears to be a bug in the tool. I will look into an update since it has been becoming increasingly popular lately.
14  Research & Technical XboxHacking (Xbox 360) / Software (TECHNICAL) / Re: xebuild patches need help on: August 17, 2012, 09:05:33 PM
Hi im new here and abit of a noob. Although ive been here reading/researching these threads for years.
Im looking for a little help if somone would be so kind.
Im after a program to open the xebuild patch sets? Ive tried eatons patch builder but get a size not valid error.
Im looking at opening the kernel/hv patches. Intrested in stripping them back to a bare minimum and looking at what they patch and why?

Thankyou people

What is the exact problem you are experiencing with my tool?
15  Xbox 360 / XboxHacking - General / Re: Blades Dash - Dashlaunch on: July 10, 2012, 10:35:42 PM
I recall people having posted videos of dash v1888 working. You should be able to run the dash.xex through xex tool to remove bounding path restrictions. Then put it on your device somewhere and direct DashLaunch to it.
16  Research & Technical XboxHacking (Xbox 360) / Hard Disk / Re: What is the largest HDD ?? Samsung 1TB Spinpoint M8 HN-M101MBB compatible? ????? on: April 28, 2012, 07:49:02 PM
Yes, that is all right. And look around the WD site and Google around.

The more RPM, the faster it is. Tests have been done and 7200 RPM HDDs do improve game speeds and such.

Before you buy a model, you may want to look around this forum and its many pages because I think that some newer models may be problematic, but i am not certain on that.

Yes. You may want to consider a 500 GB HDD because MS might eventually release one, and it will be very easy to upgrade in order to use more space.

It isn't impossible, but I just isn't easy. There is a reason HDD Hacker supports WD drives only. Each vendor makes their own HDD firmware, the code that controls the actual HDD and contains the model info, etc. Modifying this information, which is required, differs per vendor.

I know of no tools to write Samsung disk firmware, so you won't be able to use this HDD with your console.

Review the contents of the second image. HDD Hacker only supports Western Digital Scorpio drives.
You are trying to write a modified firmware to an unsupported HDD, so it will fail.

The largest theoretical size that the console can support is 2 TB. However, on unmodified retail systems, there are limitations.
It's a security measure, you can read more here:

So in short, you need to use a supported HDD and you cannot have a size bigger than 320 GB currently. You can buy a 321+ GB WD drive, but the console is only going to let you use 320 GB, as defined in the Security Sector.

Feel free to post anymore questions.

Sounds like your drive is flashed. Flash back to the original drive firmware and then apply the update. Flash back afterwards.
Error codes like that are common if the console detects a modified drive during an update.

How did you transfer the data?

Probably Party Buffalo.

kabelosean, the application could have modified the security sector for some reason. If this vital sector is modified, it would result in this exact behavior. Can you open your drive in a hex editor and go to sector 16? See if the security sector is still there.
