    You will need
  • CD-R
  • CD burner
  • Nero
  • Xboxhdm 1.9



[/list]
Step 1: Making the Xboxhdm 1.9 Boot CD

Open xboxhdm, go into the "Linux" folder
Copy all the C files into the "C" folder in xboxhdm
Copy all the E files into the "E" folder in xboxhdm
Leave the eeprom folder empty ( this is so you can use this cd more than just once )
Put the "eeprom.bin" on a floppy disk for that harddrive.

Go back to the main directory in xboxhdm and run "make-iso-win" ( this will create a bootable Xboxhdm iso for Linux )
Let this process finish, the more you have on the cd, the longer it will take. ( try to do the bare minimum on gamesaves )
Once this is finished, Open Nero and burn this file to a CD as an Image. ( you can use a cdr, cdrw, dvd, dvdrw )

Step 2: Setting Up The Hardware

Remove the harddrive from the xbox and check the jumper, usually it will be on CS ( cable select )
If it is on CS, leave it there. If not set it to CS and plug the computers power cable & Master Ide cable.
Unplug all computer harddrives, leave only the xbox harddrive pluged in.
Set the computers Bios to AUTO on the master that the xbox harddrive is on.
Also set the comptuer to boot from CD first.
**( some computers are picky, try different settings on the bios to find what works for your computer, my computer has to be set to "NONE", and Linux finds the harddrive once xboxhdm boots up. )**

Step 3: Booting Linux and unlocking/locking the harddrive

Put the xboxhdm CD in the CD drive, reboot the computer.
Now Xboxhdm will load, you will have 4 choices
Press "3" to goto the locking/unlocking tools.
Type "unlockhd -a" this is to unlock the harddrive, the -a is for autosearch
Pop in the floppy disk with the eeprom.bin on it and choose "1" for floppy disk
The harddrive is now unlocked!
Type "reboot" to reboot

Step 4: Rebuilding The Harddrive

When xboxhdm boots up this time choose option "1"
Type "xboxhd" for a menu of tools to help you build your harddrive and more.
Find what you're looking for in the menu and type the number
Build a new harddrive from scratch is the most common
This will copy the "C" & "E" folders off your xboxhdm CD!
Type "8" to quit once it's finished
Type "reboot" to reboot

Step 5: Locking The Harddrive

Just like step 3 load the locking/unlocking tools
Now type Lockhd -a "this locks the harddrive"
Put the floppy disk in and choose "1" again for floppy disk
It will now lock the harddrive with the same eeprom as before.
Type "poweroff" to ..... yup power off

Plug your xbox harddrive back up to your xbox and put your computer back to normal.

you need the eeprom.bin or the entire hdd key.
one way to get the key is if you still have the exploit still saved on your xbox
pop in the game and load "run linux" while your xbox is on the network, FTP to it by the IP address on the screen.
there should be an option to "back up" once the backup is complete look for the eeprom.bin save it to your PC and put it on a floppy disk.
now your all set to follow the tut above.

if you can't get the game to read the save and did not format the harddrive, you can put use "Slayers Auto installer" in a chipped xbox to unlock and then FTP to the xbox to get the eeprom bin
((( NEVER DO THE BACKUP OPTION IN THE CHIPPED XBOX - IT WILL MAKE A NEW EEPROM FOR THE CHIPPED XBOX )))
lock the hdd back with slayers and then use the tut above
( don't try to short cut the lock and unlock by not locking it back, it will have a lock frozen error when you try to use it in the PC. ) trust me.... if not have the advil handy.
once you have the eeprom.bin and the hdd locked back, use the tut above to rebuild your hdd.

Hope this Helps

every xbox has a different eeprom based on the xbox motherboard, harddrive and dvdrom.

yes you can put it on a harddrive and use it like that. good idea for many xboxes. I have 3 different CD's for xboxhdm.
1 - for making a stock xbox again with the Ltools exploits for all the games.
2 - for making a stock xbox again with the Ndure exploits for all the games.
3 - for making a a modded custom xbox loaded with Apps, Trainers, Skins and Emulators all on F for large harddrives.

but thats me and I get bored and do stuff like that.
have fun with it, if you need anything msg me here or hop in the chat room.

CD-Rs are cheap anyways, having a few backups never hurt

ok im lost on step 1. The tutorial says to copy files from "c" to "c" and from "e" to "e" folders. Can someone tell me where the files are that needs to be copied over?

if you open a ftp to your xbox, you will see all the partitions of the hdd on the xbox, C: and E: are drives on the xbox. You need to copy everthing inside those drives into the C and E folders in xboxhdm
