    The Xbox 360 is full of homebrew tools, here is one created byBadBloke fromforums.xbox-scene.com that helps you with the Jtaging process

    Download     http://dwl.xbox-scene.com/xbox360pc/nandtools/AutoHacker_V2.1.rar Download

    AutoHacker is an app I wrote which helps automate the proccess of SMC/JTAG Hack (on nand-related stuff only, of course).


    - Motherboard Autodetection
    - CB version / exploitability Autodetection
    - Reads NAND two times (or part of it if we are using a BB Jasper)
    - Compares the two backups, if they are identical, it saves them in a folder with a name of our choice.
    - Extracts KV and ConfigBlock from the NAND Backup.
    - Patches previously extracted KV and ConfigBlock in to the correct version of XBReboot (which is also autodetected).
    - Writes final image to NAND memory of our console.
    - Can also erase NAND (or part of it, if we are using a BB Jasper)
    - Can also write original backup into NAND.

    It can also be used regardless of JTAG Hacking in the following ways:

    - Nand Dump
    - Nand Compare
    - Nand Write (any .bin image)

    It uses a full (custom) GUI which saves as from typos or mistakes which can be done by manually typing in commands. It also saves as from looking up to Guides to determine the correct NAND addresses which are varied along with the motherboard revisions, since AutoHacker knows the motherboard we are working on, if it is exploitable etc. If something is not right (CB not exploitable / we have not patched XBR / we have not two identical backups) it does NOT overwrite our NAND.  ;D

    NOTICE: This program DEPENDS on NandPro and does NOT replace it.
    I will update the app regularly, fixing bugs and adding features. Of course, each time a new XBR comes out, AutoHacker will need to be updated (this goes without saying).

    The newest update for DivX Plus now supports the conversion of MKV (H.264) files that work on the PS3 and Xbox 360. Its very easy to convert, and is basically “drag and drop”. The program copies the converted file to a USB/disc. Remember, files larger than 4gb need to be split or transferred via media server to PS3/360 (can’t upload a 4gb+ file to USB stick)

    You can download the converter here.

    More information available here.

    A hacked version of the Xbox1 Backwards Compatibility v5829 (November 2007) has been leaked yesterday. Was originally made for devkits, but should work just fine on jtagged homebrew 360s too:

    I’ve attempted to remove any limits on the emulator, although i left in game ratings checks in case you dont want your little ones to play violent games :)

    This can be toggled in the dashboard anyway. The following hacks were done to the emulator:
    * Xbe signature checks removed (lets you run unsigned code)
    * Xbe section hash checks removed (lets u run hacked xbes)
    * Game region checks removed (region free baby!)
    * Game media checks removed (play games from your hard drive)
    * Debug/Devkit xbes supported (run your own xbox1 code)
    * Attempt to play unsupported games (doesn’t mean it will work hehe)

    To install this, copy the Compatibilty folder to your devkits Y drive.
    You may want to remove any existing files, although this should overwrite all files.

    Note: it will boot (some) Xbox1 homebrew as well, however don’t expect everything to work perfectly. And XBMC will not run fully on it (don’t expect video playback etc).

    C4E’s LT DVD firmware for BENQ drives has been released:

    C4E’s iXtreme Lite Touch (LT) in association with Team Jungle & Team Xecuter

    After a long development and testing process we give you the first official release of the iXtreme LT
    - Supports all BenQ Drives (62430C, 64930C)
    - Supports all Liteon Drives (74850, 83850V1, 83850V2, 93450)
    - Totally re-written code optimised for minimal patching
    - Whole banks of firware now untouched
    - New Drive response timing engine accurately mimics original drive timings
    - Full disc stealth used by default
    - Waveless booting , disc images are assumed to be correct!
    - Split-Vid used as default

    * Warning! Ensure all disc images are checked with abgx as LT assumes all stealth/ss/pfi/dmi is correct. Disc images must also be splitvid and preferred SS v2
    * Warning! Lt will not save you from being banned if console is already flagged by using a previous firmware or non-stealth discs
    * It is also advisable to apply all system updates before flashing with LT. All future console system updates (not game updates) must be applied with caution


    * Thanks go to Team Jungle for their hard work and efforts in the development process.
    * Thanks also go to Te

    Following on from Team XeDev’s release of NXE2GOD, here’s a new PC app for converting Xbox 360 ISO images straight into Games on Demand containers. While it’s possible to extract ISOs and run them off USB using replacement dashboards, it’s nice to be able to run them as GODs as well. This functionality has only been available through the Xbox 360 SDK until now, so we thought it was about time a legal app was released to perform the same task.

    Thanks go out to Team XeDev/Dstruktiv for NXE2GOD which helped us figure out what was needed for CON->GOD converts. Special thanks to rolly poly for testing and putting up with my endless ramblings about file formats!

    * ISO to Games on Demand container conversion
    * Support for XSF and GDF/XDVDFS ISOs
    * Automatically reads title info from ISO default.xex
    * Multiple I2G conversions can be queued up to run
    - Requires .NET Framework 2.0

    v1.0.6 updates:
    What’s new/fixed:

    + New GDF/XDVDFS code to improve stability and prepare for removing padding sectors in v1.1 release.
    + Taskbar icon now flashes when a conversion finishes
    ~ Fix: Access Denied errors when trying to open ISO on network shares.
    ~ Fix: Crash when locating default.xex on certain ISOs
    ~ Fix: Proper checking of fields in the “Add ISO” GUI
    ~ Fix: Trying to use an Xbox1 ISO won’t throw unhandled errors. (Xbox1 still not supported)
    ~ Fix: Lots of other minor stuff.

    XeX Loader 0.12 is the first public and fully functional XEX loader for homebrew capable Xbox 360 consoles.


    * Launch media-patched XEXs from any storage device
    * Manage the filesystems of all storage devices
    * Rip any inserted game to any storage device (ISO Extraction) - Still requires patching with XexTool or 360 Game Hack to remove the media check.

    Although it should work on all patched kernels, our releases are only tested
    with freeBOOT using Cygnos, not with XBRebooter. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Installing the LIVE package:

    1) Burned CD/DVD using XeXLoader.iso
    Use the file browser to copy (using the “X” button) the directory “C0DE9999″ to the 360 HDD at: Hdd1://Content/0000000000000000/

    2) Transfer Cable
    Use appropriate software such as Xplorer 360 to copy the directory “C0DE9999″ to 360 hard drive at: Partition3Content

    This includes all of the features of XBLA Unlocker previously released by dstruktiv.
    The additional “Collection Management” is contributed by node21.

    What’s new/fixed (v0.4)
    * Added ability to launch titles directly from the Scan list, or the Collection Manager List (for titles that you actually have) [use the A button]
    * added support for multiple usb devices being connected
    * More information is added the the resulting xbla_report.txt so you can choose to ignore missing titles that are rated very low.
    * Some titleIds are intentionally duplicated since they exist in the wild, but aren’t on the MS web site. You should simply “Ignore” (with the X button) the versions that you don’t have (assuming you care about such things)

    Most people have supported C4E and Team Jungle for some time now, and it is so ridiculous to everyone, when you see so much garbage, and drama being posted around on different forums. First you see some sites trying to sell iXtreme LT for stupid amounts of money, then the price goes in half, then it doubles ,then it shows as out of stock? Well, how can a piece of copy-n-paste software be out of stock? Then of course everyone bitches about C4E, even though this wasn’t his idea and; these guys also forget that the iXtreme firmwares are HIS work, and no one else’s. The fact is, he owes nothing to anyone. He should be showered with credits and support, not with bitching and whining. It’s a surprise that he even bothers any more with all that, but we also know how much he loves to do this work. It really is pathetic to see some fools post crap like that, but the console scene never changes, does it?

    Now you see attempts at “cracking” a pre-release demo version of the LT firmware, and people trying to gain credits and “pats on the back” for this work. Well, umm, people have looked at both firmwares; the real Lt and the leaked one. Take some well read advise, don’t use the leaked one! It’s an incomplete version, and if you connect to Xbox Live, you’ll be sorry, and; even MORE sorry if you paid for it.

    You should know how much time and effort it takes to do this kind of work – so you should fully support C4E in all the work he does, and as members of the entire XBox360 scene, you should thank him for it, and stop complaining because it’s not out when YOU want it to be.

    Anyway the guys at Team Jungle have updated their Twitter page with this info:
    “iXtreme LT will release shortly as promised for free. Unofficial files are incomplete and unsafe. Protection was to prevent unofficial use!” This is LiteOn firmware, by the way.

    Maybe you should start giving a few posts of appreciation, kudos, SOMETHING! Then maybe you’ll see Benq, Samsung & Hitachi versions too – because they won’t come from anyone else, you can be assured of that.

    A modified version of BenQ iXtreme v1.41 has been released:

    (1.41 REV4 (SS)) Secret Liteon MS Inquiry cdb support – Samsung and Benq
    (1.41 REV3 (SS)) Drive Serial added like the original firmware
    (1.41 REV3 (SS)) Disc speed fixed
    (v1.41) Read Sector fix
    (v1.4) Disc jitter fix

    Use Rev. 4 to spoof BenQ as a Liteon drive. If you use the old Rev 4 or 5, just upgrade to the Final rev4. If you use Rev 3 you do not do anything.

    Use on Xbox Live at own risk.

    Another launcher has been released for homebrew enabled Xbox360 consoles;
    From gsx302.

    This launcher is said to be coded by a friend of his, posted with permission. The source wishes to remain anonymous.

    This is an alternative launcher, that was created in a said “30 minutes”, and may be upgraded soon? As you can see, the pace on this stuff is moving fast, so dishing out big updates should be easy for the developer.

    It features a UI, Game launcher, and a file manager, to copy/paste/delete files.
    Keep in mind, when you copy, it counts files, so if it stalls for you? It’s a beta, it’s just counting files, so give it a second.

    When it’s pasting, the UI will also appear to be frozen until it is complete, then it will resume. Same with deleting, but that is usually faster, so it may be unnoticeable.

    Two methods to go about utilizing this:
    * Disc: Download the ISO from the usual places, and burn it using a program such as ImgBurn to a CD/DVD/etc. Pop it in, and click play game.
    * Hard drive(Game Demo): Download the VIPER360_LIVE.rar, extract the contents, and you will have a “CODE7777″ folder. Place this in your “Content000000000000000” folder on your hard drive. Now when you go to games library, you should have a Demo called “Viper360″. You can boot that to utilize it.

    boby2pc released a new version of FindSecData, a tool to help you uncripple the HDD features on a banned Xbox 360 console.   FindSecData will extract secdata.bin and filetable of NAND dump. It uses patch-latest secdata.bin method.

    What’s new/fixed (since v0.4):
    * added bypassing FF version records in filesystem (v0.41)
    * more accurate timestamp – used for visual purposes only (v0.41)
    * added parameter to show time part of timestamp in filetables (v0.42)
    * added support for large blocks (v0.5)
    * block rellocation support (v0.6)
    * now for 256MB and 512MB Jaspers is only needed dump of 0×600 blocks:
    nandpro lpt: -r256 raw.bin AE0 600
    or nandpro lpt: -r512 raw.bin AE0 600
    so only about 1h dumping (v0.6)
    * protection to use large block controller with small 24MB dump (v0.61)

    Carranzafp/Maximus released a modified version of the Lite-On iXtreme v1.6 to work with the 83850-v2 and 93450 drives.

    He Wrote: “Just finished hexediting and testing. Here are templates for Ixtreme 1.6 for 83V2 and 93450 liteon firmwares what you need to do is place your keys/serials on it and flash
    use Jungleflasher or Hexedit, whatever, keep you original stored for future upgrades.

    Dont ask why you got banned if you play Online with this firmware, its 1.6, also I just tested with 2 consoles so its your call the fws are based on the 83v1 ixtreme 1.6 I could have do it based on the 74 but Its the first I saw, dont think based on the 74 would make them safer anyway.”

    In related news, MRA released a new and better method to dump/read those Lite-On 83850-v2 and 93450 drives:

    No pin lifting or epoxy removing needed anymore! Just solder anything on the back according to this picture.
    Also if you got status 0×52 instead of 0×72 with the “1,8V-method” this should do it. I already dumped 4 drives with this method without any issues.

    -switch it to position 1
    -power the drive
    -start Dosflash –> SPI should get recognized with status 0×72
    -switch to position 2
    -click “read”

    Unsolder anything and reconnect the lines that have been cut.

    XBReboot v0.05: by phonsey and tuxuser on XBH – Has now also been released for Zephyr, Falcon and Jasper-16mb motherboards.
    *Update* They are all available with the latest 8955_1 patch revision now, so each 16mb motherboard can now run XBR v0.05 8955_1! Only support for Jasper 256/512mb motherboards is still missing now.  Don’t forget to inject your own KeyVault and Config before flashing!

    360 Flash Dump Tool: by MODFREAKz on XBH – Since Robinsod released the source of “360 Flash Dump Tool” and stopped developing a few people decided to continue develop this great app.
    This tool will allow you to decrypt/encrypt and extract various parts of a XBOX360 flash dump and much more!!

    Note: Jasper dumps are not supported in this version, largeblock is being worked on.

    What’s new/fixed:
    - Bugfix, regarding to CD decryption. If you have a 1920+ CD version it doesn’t decrypt CD properly. (by arnezami)
    - Bugfix, if a CPU key starts with 00 then the program crashed. (by arnezami)
    - Added, separate extract option for all important stuff (Security Data, Extended Key Vault, Console Revocation List, AP25 Challenge Database, Config Blocks)

    pic for news

    Well it look’s like Microsoft are at it again with all the system ban’s that have been sent out in last few weeks this latest step shows that they are putting a stop to hackers once and for all…As you can read below

    Datel announced that it has filed an antitrust lawsuit against Microsoft, in response to Microsoft’s lockout (via Xbox 360 firmware update) of the company’s Max Memory Cards. We doubt this is the “remedy” for the lockout issue to which the company previously referred, but it’s certainly one way to address it.

    Microsoft has taken steps to render inoperable the competing Datel memory card for no visible purpose other than to have that market entirely to themselves,” Datel attorney Marty Glick explained in a press release. “They accomplished their recent update by making a system change that will not recognize or allow operation of a memory card with greater capacity than their own. We believe that with the power Microsoft enjoys in the market for Xbox accessories this conduct is unlawful.”

    In the press release, Datel goes on to say that the lawsuit is intended to “restore competition” which, the company suggests, is beneficial to consumers. It’s now up to a federal court in San Francisco to determine whether the Max Memory-crippling Xbox update constitutes unlawful anti-competitive behavior on the part of Microsoft.

    The last time Datel went to court, it viewed the experience from the other side. Sony filed suit against the peripheral maker over the “Lite Blue Tool,” which would have enabled users to run unsigned code on PSP hardware.

    GodzIvan strikes again, this time with a diagram which simply write protects the NAND flash in the Xbox 360 by connecting WP to ground pin (if the flash type has different pinout, just find the datasheet to locate WP). This modification does not stop the ban from M$, but it prevents deletion of the HD installation certificates required by games which means you can still install them on the hard drive. In order to update the kernel this mod must be disabled; a simple switch solution comes to mind.” This is only a safegaurd against a ban, and only works on a unbanned 360 console, and prevents against future bans.

  • Posted by Pirate , on 14/11/2009 , @ 01:29am


    The fight against the 360 ban is heating up as hackers start to pull out there big guns.  k0mpresd from X-S has posted a tutorial (confirmed working), which unbans any Xbox 360 console (8955).  The method is old and known (more info below), and is quite complicated so its not “newb friendly”.

    Post from k0mpresd :

    what you need:

    your 8955 live console + cpu key
    a 2nd unbanned console
    nandpro b + flash cable
    xell loader
    1888 fs
    robinsod’s flashtool


    use nandpro and dump nand from unbanned console.
    flash xell and use jtag hack to obtain cpu key.
    use flashtool to extract file system.

    dump nand from 8955 console.
    use flashtool to patch nand dump with kv.bin from unbanned console.
    save patched file (patched_kv.bin).

    open degraded + 1888 fs.
    create 1888 downgrader image (downgrader.bin) from your patched_kv.bin file.

    flash downgrader.bin to 8955 console.
    attach hdd + ethernet cable and boot console.

    connect to live and update to 8955 dashboard.

    console is now fully working and unbanned!

    More info on this method:

    I see lots of sites posting today about a way to unban Xbox 360 from LIVE often linking to a thread made on our forums here.

    This method has been known for a long time (since the King Kong Exploit days) and does indeed ‘work’. Basically you swap the Keyvault (or ‘KV’ in short, it stores stuff like console certificates, per-box private keys, DVD key, etc) inside the NAND with the KV from an unbanned console. While technically very different you could somewhat compare it to swapping eeprom data during the Xbox1 days.

    However there’s a (really) big ‘IF’ (besides the required tech knowledge) … you need the (unique) CPU key of your banned console - without it you can’t correctly write (or encrypt if you want) the new KV data in the NAND bin of your banned console.
    Now you wonder how to get the CPU-key … well by running XeLL of course!
    To run XeLL u need to perform the JTAG hack (or the King Kong exploit, but that’s even more outdated) … and if you got banned the last few weeks it means you updated to the latest dashboard/kernel (else you can’t get on LIVE).
    And that’s the problem… Microsoft patched the JTAG hack since kernel 849x (July 2009) … so no way to boot up XeLL (= no realistic way for you to get the CPU-key atm) and thus no way to swap the KV data in your NAND image.
    And then there’s also added KV protection (hashing) on newer motherboards (Falcon+ ? and kernel 1888 won’t boot on those), but if you can’t even get your CPU-key it doesn’t matter much to do deeper into this problem.
    The only way it would work is if you retrieved the CPU-key of your old banned 360 before you updated to anything over 849x. If you did that you probably know about all of this and I’m not telling you anything new ;)
    Downgrading kernel is not an option either, older kernels won’t boot as both kernel and CB fuses were burned during the various updates MS performed, and you can’t bypass that without … your CPU-key.

    Hope that explains the situation a bit (tried to make it not ‘too’ technical)
    On a side-note, it would probably be pretty easy for MS to detect KV-swaps (like HW-mismatches etc).
    Side-note2: in case it wasn’t obvious yet those “unban isos” are fake and iXtreme LT won’t unban you (it will instead try to avoid new bans).

    In other news, C4eva has announced he is working on a new firmware for the 360 which is not bannable, more info:

    C4Eva announced he’s working on a new firmware on IRC:
    “[c4eva] new fw in dev/test - ixtreme LT (Lite Touch) - more efficient , minimal patching , all aspects of fw indistinguisable from orig, no more bans, No ETA!”

    We do not have more details atm.
    As far as we know the 3 ‘test boxes’ C4Eva has running (see here) are still fine (not banned).

    v1.0.2 has been officially released.

    * Changes affecting all platforms:
    - Added support for 4th Wave PFI/Video
    - Added support for SS v2
    - Added the new check for DMI corruption which the database has been using since 2009/06/14
    - Added ability to at least try to verify the game data when no Xex/SS ini is available and we’re not going to AutoFix
    - Added support for Avatar Awards
    - Added option to select your preferred language to use when displaying strings from the Xex title resource
    - Added drag & drop support for the GUI Input panel
    - Added option to embed images in the HTML source code as data URIs for better portability (when using HTML output)
    - Added JavaScript to HTML output that allows you to check off achievements and see the achieved text (especially useful when the how-to text is vague)
    - Added a Donate button to the GUI so you can help me pay the bills and continue working on improvements :)
    - Removed “Look for verified files in the local folder only” option from the GUI. I can’t tell you how many people have checked this box without reading it because they saw it in a tutorial or someone else told them to do it, and then they can’t figure out why abgx360 says you need to enable online functions. Please stop writing/following tutorials! Just read the Quickstart topics, the tutorial is right there.
    - Checking for updates to GameNameLookup.csv is now optional (the csv was eating 50% of our bandwidth and you probably don’t need it anyway since the game name can be retrieved directly from the Xex)
    - Fixed a bug where folders would be considered files when parsing the ISO filesystem on some recent games
    - Fixed a bug where default.pe (a temporary file used when decompressing a compressed default.xex) wasn’t being deleted automatically
    - Fixed a bug where unicode code point 160 (no-break space) would be displayed in a CLI window as ” ?” instead of ” ”
    - Small changes to the way some messages are displayed (harder to miss)

    * Changes affecting Windows:
    - Now storing data files in the AppData folder to prevent errors related to permissions and UAC. You can open the GUI and hit Ctrl+F to find out where your StealthFiles are now stored and optionally have it opened for you. abgx360 will still check for Video ISOs in the old install directory first though, so you don’t need to move that 3rd Wave Video ISO if you have it saved there already.
    - Using libcurl 7.19.6 which should hopefully fix some strange connection problems affecting a small percentage of users

    * Changes affecting Linux/BSD:
    - Fixed a bug on 64 bit systems which made it impossible to read PFI/Video exceptions from abgx360.dat
    - Added code to the unix version of kbhit() to prevent hanging when abgx360 is launched as a background process

    * Changes affecting Mac OS X:
    - Fixed a bug where abgx360 would fail to launch if you supplied a filename that contained an apostrophe
    - Changed the dark gray text used for things like achievement type to normal gray since it was actually showing up black (invisible on a black background)
    - Removed GUI option to “Use Terminal font characters” (this refers to a Windows font which replicates CP437 characters and not Terminal.app)

    * Special Note: It’s recommended to wait for iXtreme LT (Lite Touch) before you play any more backups or originals on an unbanned console flashed with custom firmware.
