                @ kingroach

You probably already saw it, but I released v1.7.
The big news are linux based locking/unlocking tools available from boot option 3). The DOS boot is now option 4)

These linux tools get the HDD password directly from the eeprom, meaning no password typing. When locking the tool also sets a Master Password ('XBOXSCENE') that will let you unlock the HDD without the eeprom or the HDD password.

I recommend using these tools instead of unlockx that has made quite a number of users pull their hair out by now...

                ldots,

Nice work. The things that I want to see in the next version(if there will be such a thing) of your UDE tools would be the added functionality of building the initrd that contains what is in the xboxhdm(including the eeprom.bin). Then I can just save away this initrd which is specific to a particular Xbox. It can be used to rescue or upgrade HD for each individual Xbox.

                I'm loving the work you've put into this along with the other guys. I do have one question though. I can't seem to find any doc about using the clone hd option. Whats the drive chain suppose to be like when using this option. I know I'll have 2 hd's and one cd drive, But whats master/slave and primary/secondary order?

                @ kingroach
Glad to see the update smile.gif
Any chance you could add the link to the
official xboxhdm tutorial since building a HDD and restore C: is just some of the things xboxhdm does?
I think it should also be considered a (stable smile.gif) alternative to HDDriver and fatxplorer with the xbrowser making file management pretty easy.
Not to mention the UDE installer for xboxhdm.

@ okayama
It's briefly mentioned in the root post of the xboxhdm thread (link above). But there is not a hole lot to it. You will be prompted to choose your source and destination drive. From my PC :'

                I feel like a moron asking this.  But can I use this to upgrade the HD in my 1.6 xbox?

I have modded close to 30 xboxes with softmods, but just ran into my first 1.6 box the other day.  Upto then I was using LiveInfo to calculate the new HD key and unlockx to lock/unlock the drives.  LiveInfo however won't read the 1.6 eeprom file.  So will this package be able to do this?

Great tutorial, and thnx again for the package ldots!

                Look at the "Final tips" section in the xboxhdm thread (1st link in my sig). Your drive is probably freeze locked.

                I just don't get it. Don't you have to hotswap when using xboxhdm? Or is that what you're doing in the picture where the xbox and pc is?
You must do it when cloning a hdd at least, right?
