    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 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 drive *
    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.

    FAQ
    -----
    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 1.22, 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.

    Re: HddHackr v1.22 Build 20091022 inc 250GB hddss

    All right, well I have a couple of questions. First: I dont currently have a hard drive, so would this work a 250 gb hdd with the case for a 20/60/120gb hard drive? (I can get it from ebay, just search "xbox 360 hard drive case")

    Second, I was doing some reading about bans, so will I get banned from using the hddss.bin provided in the post above?

    Re: HddHackr v1.22 Build 20091022 inc 250GB hddss

    Hi i am new to this but have aquestion about which hdd's i can use for this i have an Hitachi 5K250-250? (it is a 250 gb hdd)

    I have tried to do as the tutorial say's but finish with a execption that it can't create a undo.bin. but when i hook it up to the xbox no mem device present ??.

    When i use hddhackr its does not say that the drive is already fixed. so i can format it over and over.

    ooh migjt be importend it is NTFS formated might here be the problem ??

    Kind regards Trible

    So this looks easy enough. Anyone heard of anyone else getting banned from live for this mod? I don't see how M$ would know as long as you are using the correct drive and bin file. Just curios because I'm about to order this. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6822136387

    Thanks.
