HDDHACKR v1.40 Build 20130303


** Notes **

- HDDHackr is made only for real MS-DOS, not for windows command prompt or even windows XP/Vista/7 !!!!
- 99% of problems appears to be Mainboard chipset (SATA Chipset) or some BIOS configurations (RAID, AHCI, LegacyIDE, ...), not HDDHacker app!!
- Use Bootable USB Drive Creator Tool to prepare USB drive.
- Download package contains approx. 70 recovery files (UNDO.BIN)

How to use
-------------

HddHacker supports two flashing modes, Auto and Manual. Typing HddHackr at a DOS prompt
will start auto mode. In auto mode all hard drives will be detected automatically.
In manual mode you can enter all the parameters used for flashing by hand.

The following help screen is displayed if you start HddHacker with a wrong number of
arguments:

HDDHACKR [C|D|F|R] [PORT] [DRIVE POS] [SECTOR FILE] [RESTORE FILE]
                       C: Create Partitions 0/2/3
                       D: Dump sector 16-22 from XBOX360 HDD to file
                       F: Flash Western Digital firmware
                       R: Restore Western Digital firmware
                 PORT: Port to send command to e.g. 09F0
          DRIVE POS: A0 for Master, B0 for Slave
       SECTOR FILE: Sector dump file e.g. HDDSS.BIN
     RESTORE FILE: Firmware restore file e.g. UNDO.BIN

Example for create, dump, flash and restore:
HDDHACKR C 09F0 A0
HDDHACKR D 09F0 A0 HDDSS.BIN
HDDHACKR F 09F0 A0 HDDSS.BIN UNDO.BIN
HDDHACKR R 09F0 A0 UNDO.BIN



Explanation of the Parameters
---------------------------------

[C|D|F|R]
---------
- this will set the mode of operation, it is recommended to first try to dump the XBOX360
   hard drive data, if the dump will fail, it is highly unlikely that a flash or restore
   will succeed on the Western Digital drive

[PORT]
--------
- the port to which the Hard Drive is connected, a port number should always be entered
   in hexadecimal and have 4 hex digits, valid ports are: 01F0, 09F0, .....
- this option can be used if your PCI adapter card or on board SATA ports are
   not identified by the auto mode

[DRIVE POS]
-------------
- on SATA ports this value is always A0, cause you can only connect a master drive to
   a SATA port, so for SATA you will always type A0 here

[SECTOR FILE]
---------------
- name of the sector 16-22 dump file better known as HDDSS.BIN

[RESTORE FILE]
----------------
- name of the firmware restore file e.g. UNDO.BIN



Using HddHacker in auto or manual mode
------------------------------------

* Dumping the HDDSS.BIN file *
Boot to MS-DOS from a writeable medium (like a floppy or UBS Stick).
Connect an *original* Xbox360 HDD to your SATA controller. Make sure it is the only
SATA device that is connected. Now run 'HDDHACKR D [PORT] A0 HDDSS.BIN' and it will create
the file 'HDDSS.BIN' and save it to the path you've started HddHacker from.

* Creating Partitions 0/2/3 *
In auto-mode the Partition 0/2/3 will be created automaticly to make the drive compatible
with "Xplorer360" and XBOX360 Console. In manual-mode you have to type 'HDDHACKR C [PORT] A0'.

* Flashing your Western Digital *
Turn off your PC and connect the Western Digital hard drive. Boot to MS-DOS again.
Type 'HDDHACKR F [PORT] A0 HDDSS.BIN UNDO.BIN' from the same path you have saved the HDDSS.BIN
file to. This will create an 'UNDO.BIN' file that you need if you want to undo the hack
and flash your firmware back to the original state.

* Restoring your WD to original state *
If you don't want to use your modded WD HDD in your XBOX360 anymore and you want to
flash it back to its original size/state, then you can now do so. Boot to MS-DOS and
run 'HDDHACKR R [PORT] A0 UNDO.BIN'. This will use the UNDO.BIN file you created before to
restore the drive to its original state.

* Vendor Intro Power Brute for misflashed drives *
To enter the recovery mode you should boot to MS-DOS, connect your hard drive to PC and type
'HDDHACKR R [PORT] A0 UNDO.BIN'. If the hard drive is misflashed you will be prompted with:
"Western Digital Vendor Intro failed on port [PORT]"
"Do you want to resend the command until the drive responds (Y/N)?"
Press YES, disconnect the hard drive from power and connect it again.
You should get Status 0x50 and the drive will be reflashed.

* Adjust IntelliPark Timer, WD only *
IntelliPark is not that intelligent. In fact, with default settings it parks the heads
after 8 seconds of inactivity. This means, depends of your OS and usage pattern the drive will reach
it's designed lifetime in very short time. Meaning of IntelliPark values.
Resolution is 0.1 seconds from 0.1 to 12.8 seconds.
Resolution is 30.0 seconds from 30.0 to 3810.0 seconds.
Note, times between 12.8 and 30.0 seconds will be set to 30.0 seconds.
Default timer is 8.0 seconds, recommended timer is 300.0 seconds.
To disable timer type 0 seconds.



FAQ
-----

Q. Is it true that in several cases, booting PC with connected HDD
will change LBA size of my hard drive and it will no longer work in x360?
A. Yes, most modern mainboard/BIOS manufacturer modify LBA size,
they cut the harddrive for HPA and store additional BIOS data at the end of a hard disk.
So if you have such mainboard that uses this technology, do not have the a hard drive
powered on during BIOS detection, it will break XBOX360 compatibility.
To get the x360 compatibility back, simply reflash the HDDSS.BIN.


Q. I heard lot of people having problems with the new 2010/2011 models.
Does it matter wich moddel I have?
A. The 2010/2011 drive are the same, lots of people have hacked them perfectly.
99% of problems appear to be SATA chipset or BIOS configuration.


Q. Will this tool allow me to connect a 500GB drive to my x360 ?
A. No. The information on sector 16 is signed and can't be changed. You can
only use the size where you have a valid signature for. In otherwords, if a
bigger HDD comes out, then you can use that signature.


Q. With which HDD's does this work ?
A. As of version 1.40, it now works with all sizes and versions of the
WesternDigital Scorpio Series.


Q. Do I need the same size WD HDD as the size on sector 16 states ?
A. No. You can use bigger HDD's, but you can't use more than the size stated
in sector 16. You can NOT use smaller HDD's than the size on sector 16 states.
For example, you can use a 40GB HDD with a sector 16 from a 20GB HDD, but
not the other way around of course.


Q. Can I use the HDD in my PC again ?
A. Of course. The tool comes with an 'restore' option, that will restore the
original size. For example, you use a 40GB WD HDD, you used HDDSS.BIN from
a valid xbox360 20GB HDD, so the tool will transform your 40GB HDD into a 20GB HDD.
However, you can restore it to 40GB anytime you want with the restore option.


Q. I lost my UNDO.BIN file, can I use it from another drive ?
A. There's no guarantee this will work. It might kill your drive.
Using a UNDO.BIN from a different model (e.g. LAT/RST) will kill your drive for sure.


Q. I have a XBOX360 Core/Arcade version and want to use this hack to buy a cheap HDD.
But how do i connect it ?
A. If you don't have a Premium/Elite, you can make the HDD internal. One great tutorial
that will show you how to do this: http://www.xboxhacker.net/index.php?topic=9542.0


Q. The tool doesn't detect my HDD !
A. First, make sure you are running it from real MS-DOS, not from a DOS box under windows.
If the HddHacker does not autodetect your SATA controller then let us know about it.


Q. The HddHacker says the UNDO.BIN file already exists.
A. If you previously made an UNDO.BIN file, then you should keep that one. There's no
need to create another one. Keep in mind that the UNDO.BIN represents the current state
of the drive.


Q. Could you do this for my Seagate, Maxtor, Samsung or whatever drive too ?
A. Yes, but I don't have plans to do so. It is a lot of work to convert this tool
for usage with other brands and don't think it is worth the trouble.


Q. Where can I donate ?
A. Nowhere. Just enjoy!

why would you want to waste 200GB? Stick with a 120-160GB drive.

ya i understand it may be a waste but eventually they could put out a xbox 320gb drive, where i am looking to pick one up the options are scorpio blue(250) or the one i mentioned and it easier for me to go to the store and pick it up instead of ordering one(lazy)

thanks for the input though

Even if you use a 320GB hard drive, only 120GB is going to be usable. You are just wasting your money.
also, Microsoft is not planning to release any new hard drives bigger than 120GB.

I still have one small problem with my harddrive - the divx update is not saved.

With the original xbox360 harddrive you can download the divx update and then play divx/xvid-movies offline

With a WD harddrive prepared with hddhackr you can download the divx-update and play a movie, however - nexttime you want to play a movie the update must be downloaded again.

So it will not work if you are offline.

Im not talking about the 20Mb media update - this is a small divx update from Ms.

Have tried this with hddhackr 0.91 and 1.00

Any ideas ?

the update is locked to a drive and console. your only option: create a fake account, download the update using that.

Since now HddHackr is including support for WD Black series also, a question has popped-up on my mind that WD Black 120GB BJKT has the following specs:

*16 MB cache
*7200rpm
*SATA 3GB/s

Now I'm looking to upgrade my stock 60GB with a 120GB WD Scorpio Black.

Questions:
------------

Q1: Will the 360 use the 16MB cache or still the 8MB cache?
Q2: Will the spin speed 7200rpm improve the overall performance of games like load times, frame rates?
Q3: Will data transfer be 3GB/sec?

Probably YES to all of your statement, and to be honest, most of those questions that you have asked doesn't have to do with the Xbox much, it's mainly the drive performance that itself affects

you won't see any major difference. the drive speed is limited by other factors too.

I am having a slight issue trying to modify a OEM WD1600BEVS Scorpio Drive

I keep getting
"LBA size does not match!"

Manufacturer: WDC WD1600BEVS-60RST0
Serial: WD-WXEZ07R01611
Firmware Revision: 04.01G04
LBA: 312581808

It does dump the undo.bin
here is a copy if that will help.
http://pastebin.com/f8605491

I have tried 5 different sata chipsets and some will error out and not dump the undo.bin but all the ones that get far enough to dump it will error out with "LBA size does not match!"
I then tried auto-detect and manual and the same error happens.
I also tried version .91b and it will detect the drive but reports incompatibility.

any body have any ideas? is this a known issue?
thanks for any help.

I am not sure which LBA size it is matching to what? i am going to load it up in ida pro and see if i can figure out what the error message means.

any chance of getting the source?

I am not positive, but I think that this release only supports the 20GB and 120GB version. The ones you guys are using are 20GB< x >120GB
