Well stonersmurf, to be honest, it's been a long time since I've been messing around with assembly code (how could you know that btw.
It'd take me a really many hours to complete such tasks and I'm defenitely not the right guy for such things. To be honest, I doubt I'll be able to successfully do this, next thing is, I doubt I could do it in any decent time. I'm not a professinal programmer - but I never said I was *gg*
About 5 years ago, I fell in love with some more user friendly and - of course - easier to understand programming languages and I sticked to it till today.
I actually never needed to code anything in assembly that my friendly programming languages wouldn't do aswell (maybe even better) for me.
I did some very, very basic assembly stuff in the good old dos days, using SoftIce etc. - but thats all about it ... nothing worth to be mentioned anyway.
I thought I'd just let you know, since you seem to be a very friendly person.
What i did was creating some nice little tool, which runs under windows xp, based on the discoveries I posted in this thread.
Don't know if I'm the first one who discovered those things, but most important: I don't even care if I was or not
. I never spent much time in your forums until last week, but what I discoverd, I discovered solely on my own, with some ideas taken from that excellent PDF tutorial which you are hosting here.
What I made out of my - not enormously great knowledge and skills in programming - was that tool I mentioned above, which has the function to search for individual, significant bytes within a raw dump (made by a hacked Hitachi) then compares those byte strings with the corresponding ones in a true "xtreme way" dumped security sector and tells you, if you can use it for burning or not ... sounds pretty easy, I know, but it might save you lots of coasters.
It can also rebuild security sectors "the xtreme way" from a raw dump (without the few missing bytes of course)
Want me to upload it here ?
I read C4E's gonna iclude the possibility to dump security sectors in the next release of his hacked firmware, so i guess we'll all be lucky and I don't have to mess around with assemby
Have a nice weekend mate
