XBoX Hdm 2.2a Copied Files To New Hdd With 8.3 File Format

Recommended Posts

I'm trying all methods of XBOX modding: softmodding with exploit is learned and understood, later steps will be TSOP (v1.2) and modchip (v1.2/v1.6) but for now I decided to replace the original 10GB Seagate HDD with a 80GB 7200rpm Seagate HDD because the original is reporting below 50% health with Acronis Drive Monitor. I went with XBOXHDM 2.2a because I already had a FAT32 flash drive for booting ISOs, so I just extracted the content, added the entries from menu.lst to my menu.lst,  copied eeprom.bin to \eeprom folder and extracted v5960 dashboard files from Clean_C_and_E_Files_for_Xbox.7z to \hdm\C.

 

It couldn't be simpler: Boot Slax, run xboxhd2 from command window (phase 2), run xboxhdm to create C/E/F partitions and autocopy the dashboard, lock the HDD with xboxhd2 again, insert HDD in the XBOX. All was OK until I booted the XBOX and was greeted with error 21. A quick Google search indicated it might be related to missing dashboard files, so I checked the C partition content with a quick hotswap, Windows XP and Xplorer360 beta6, and discovered that the files were copied in the 8.3 DOS naming scheme. For example, the "xboxdashdata.185ead00" folder was copied as "xboxda~1.185", the "XBox Book.xtf" file was copied as "xboxbo~1.xtf" and so on. Deleting all files and dropping them into Xplorer360 again solved the naming problem and the XBOX booted correctly.

 

(EDIT: for some strange reason, partition E had duplicated folders: tdata, udata, TDATA and UDATA)

 

So the question is: Why did Slax/QEMU copied the files in 8.3 format?

      Methods of Identification
      There is no single method of identifying your Xbox revision with 100% accuracy, but by using three well-tested methods together, you will be able to determine the version of your Xbox with certainty. The methods are as follows. It is best to perform all of these tests because Microsoft doesn't print the revision number on the Xbox (that would make it too easy for modders!).
      The goal of revision identification is ultimately to determine which type of mod chip you can use, so after you have determined the revision by a single test, it's a pretty safe bet that you have your revision. But just to be cautious, I recommend performing other checks of the revision to be certain.
      Manufacturing Date
      The manufacturing date of an Xbox is just a "suggestion" for the revision. The manufacturing date is printed on the serial number label on the bottom of the Xbox. You can see this label through a hole in the retail box (used for scanning the serial number at the cash register), so you can try to identify the revision without even removing an Xbox from the box (although a used Xbox is probably lacking a retail box in the first place).
      The serial number/bar code label on the bottom of the Xbox includes a "MFG. DATE" value in the format YYYY-MM-DD, representing year, month, and day. Table 3.1 will help you to identify your Xbox revision using the manufacturing date (although assembly line and factory appear to be more relevant factors).
      Table 3.1 Revision by Manufacturing Date
      Date Range
      Revision
      Location
      01/2001–10/2002
      1.0
      Hungary
      11/2002–04/2003
      1.1
      Hungary, Mexico
      05/2003–03/2004
      1.2–1.5
      China
      04/2004–?
      1.6
      China, Taiwan
       
      Hardware Serial Number
      If you are browsing the used Xboxes at your local video game store in the hope that you can buy an older Xbox that will work with your solderless mod chip of choice, you will need to use the serial number version test. But what happens if the manufacturing label has been removed? This is a fairly common occurrence that might have something to do with Xbox owners not wanting to change their Xbox Live accounts (which makes one wonder why they sold the Xbox in the first place). Here is how you can decode the hardware serial number if it is available:
      Please login or register to see this code. where
      L is the number of the production line within the factory.
      NNNNNN is the number of the Xbox produced during the workweek.
      Y is the last digit of the production year.
      WW is the number of the week of the production year.
      FF is the code of the factory where the Xbox was manufactured, according to Table 3.2.
      Table 3.2 Factory Codes
      Factory
      Location
      Revision
      02
      Mexico
      1.0 or 1.1
      03
      Hungary
      1.0
      05
      China
      1.2 (or later)
      06
      Taiwan
      1.2 (or later)
       
      Because the factory code method is not very reliable (because there may be some codes missing from this list), let's try another method of identifying your Xbox to narrow things down a bit. See Table 3.3 for a serial number check that is accurate but not very specific. If your code is not shown, I would recommend using the closest code to yours, leaning toward the previous one if there is a value above and below your code.
      Table 3.3 Serial Number Check
      Serial Number
      Revision
      LNNNNNN 20WFF
      1.0

      LNNNNNN 23WFF
      1.0, 1.1
      LNNNNNN 24WFF
      1.1
      LNNNNNN 25WFF

      LNNNNNN 30WFF

      LNNNNNN 31WFF
      1.3
      LNNNNNN 32WFF
      1.3
      LNNNNNN 33WFF
      1.4, 1.5
      LNNNNNN 42WFF
      1.6
       
      Video Chip Verification
      If you have used the preceding two checks to narrow down what you think your Xbox revision is, the next two steps will really give you a concrete answer to the question. Assuming you have already opened your Xbox per Chapter 2, "Disassembling Your Xbox," you should look for the video chip. It is located on the motherboard, directly below the video output port on the back of the Xbox (see Please login or register to see this link. ). This is another excellent verification of the revision, as Table 3.4 illustrates, and may be considered foolproof.

      Xbox BIOS Version Number
      You can use one final check to verify the Xbox revision that you own (or are considering buying): Look at the BIOS kernel version and dashboard version numbers. To view these numbers, boot the Xbox in dashboard mode (by powering up without a disc in the DVD-ROM drive). Go to Settings and then System Info. A disclaimer will scroll down and will eventually show you two version numbers: a K: value for the kernel and a 😧 value for the dashboard. You can perform an unscientific check of the revision using Table 3.5.
      If you are at a video store, this may be your only way of double-checking the revision. Note that revision 1.0 of the Xbox did not provide these numbers, so if you can't find them, it is definitely a 1.0. Nevertheless, I will include the 1.0 kernel version in Table 3.5. Some kernel versions may not be shown in this list; if yours is not shown, you can base it on the nearest version to yours. Along with the other noninvasive tests, this should give you a clear idea about the revision for a particular Xbox.

      Xbox Revision
      Kernel Version
      1.0
      3944,4034,4036,4627
