No, it means what it says. It eliminates the eeprom mismatch issue that is a common cause of blank screens and other problems - no mention of swapping disks or removing the need for disk unlocking and locking.


ahh I never had the mistmatch issue which is why I was not familiar with the statement and read it as being something else

Not directly, because it looks for files on D:\

It wouldn't be too difficult to install it on E:\ then do a search and replace on config.xml to repoint all of the D:\ references to a location on E:\, but not E:\HeXEn\, because I think I've already used E:\HeXEn\


I would be interested in this, haven't had a DVD drive for a while and have just upgraded my HDD to a Seagate 400gb, but now i need to change my bios from iND-5003.06 to iND-5003.67, got the winbond W49F020T so i know i need to use raincoat, jus not sure how.

Can't use the Eurasia disc or this one, if you could give me some pointers to get it going from HDD i wouldn't mind trying this out. Thanks Heimdall great work, keeping the scene alive

Well readig the post he seems to say if you extract the contents opf the dvd to E:\foldername
(the folder name cant be hexen)
Then on your pc open config.xml with an edit program, and do a search replace.
Search for : D:\
replace with E:\Foldername\

it should work like an app

I.e

You make the folder HexInst on E:\
"e:\hexinst"
Then extract all the contents of the hexen disk to
"e:\hexinst"
then edit
"E:\hexinst\config.xml"
With the search replace function of notepad or similar
and replace D:\ with E:\hexinst\
and then run hexen from E:\hexinst\
That should work..


Im just summerizing from the info given in the post you quoted. So you may want to wait for heimdall. But that is my understanding of what the post says.

Yeah i tried not long after my post, just replaced "D:\" with "E:\hex\" it works perfectly, flashed my Winbond chip, threw in my 400gb HD, now just need to ftp my stuff over. Cheers shambles1980 and cheers heimdall, the app works great, just need a CD re-writer so i can burn it to disc for emergency's

Obviously you can't do that!

It runs from a DVD, or (as described in the posts above) you can copy it to the hard drive to do things like reflash the TSOP etc. If you are upgrading the drive then there isn't a hard drive to run it from.......

The problem is that once you hotswap there isn't anything on the Xbox to format the new disk.

Chimp should work.

Alternatively you could try running UnleashX with a config that included the menu item:

<Item Action="PrepareHD">Prepare New HD</Item>

Load UnleashX, then hotswap, then select "Prepare New HD from the menu.

That will format the new disk with a basic format, and should install a dash as well, and once that's done you can use FTP to copy XBPartitioner 1.1 to properly format the F/G partitions, and also copy any other files you want.

How big is the ISO HeXEn? I am not sure if I unzipped it correctly. I use 7-Zip and the iso I got was 486MB. Is this correct?

I can't check at the moment, but that's about right. If it unzipped without errors then it should be fine.

Heimdall, I'm trying to format a sata 2tb drive for a softmodded 1.6 xbox with this disc.
I read all the instructions on the disc and followed them exactly, but my screen freezes during the preparation stage. Right after the message that says what to choose after preparation is complete, a gray unleashx logo appears, but no other status updates come up.

Any idea why this might occur? This is the same xbox I was trying to upgrade using xboxhdm.
