    Default How to Uncorrupt a Gamertag or Gamesave from a Banned Xbox 360

    How to Uncorrupt a Gamertag or Gamesave from a Banned Xbox 360

    As you may know once you are banned from Xbox live if you use that banned console to play games and then put your HDD back into an unbanned console your profile shows as corrupted and you have to recover Gamertag from Xbox LIVE. In doing this though you lose any achievements you may have obtained on the banned Xbox. I have found a way to un-corrupt the profile without Recovering.

    What you need:
    A Data Transfer Cable for 360 or disassemble your hard drive.
    CON Flag Remover
    Xbox 360 Hash Block Calculator

    Choose one of the follow below, you do not need them all.
    Xplorer 360 20gb Edition
    Xplorer 360 60gb Edition
    Xplorer 360 100gb Edition
    Xplorer 360 160gb Edition
    Xplorer 360 250gb Edition
    Xplorer 360 320gb Edition
    Xplorer 360 500gb Edition
    Xplorer 360 1tb Edition
    Xplorer 360 Extreme 2 20gb and 120gb Edition

    Step 1:
    First thing you want to do is get a back-up of your current profile. You can skip this step and go to Step 3 B if you already have achievements on your banned console you wish to transfer to an unbanned. This is also just a precaution and can be skipped if you don't wish to make a back up.

    Either connect your hard drive to your PC through the Data Cable or disassemble the hard drive and connect using normal Sata connections.

    Next open "Xplorer360". Click "Drive>Open>Harddrive or Memory-card".
    Select "Partition 3", then expand "Content"

    Under this will be several folders Starting with "E". These folder names are your profile ID so I can't say for sure they name of yours but if there is only one profile it will be easiest.

    Expand your E folder, "FFFE07D1", then "000100000"

    Now you will see your Profile file, Drag this file onto your desktop or any where you can find it.

    Step 2:
    Now make a back up just in case something goes wrong. Right click on the file you just dragged from the hard drive. Click copy. Right click again and click paste. you can then rename this file what ever you want just remember it is the Original. I would suggest just adding ORG or BAK to the end of the file name.

    Step 3:
    A: For use with a previously recovered Gamertag that is not corrupted
    You can now put your Hard drive onto your banned console. I would suggest either just playing a game or getting an easy achievement to test. Then move on to Step 4.

    B: For those with a still corrupted Gamertag
    If you have a Corrupted Gamertag that you have received additional achievements you can uncorrupt that gamertag and have it add those achievements to your online gamerscore. Just remember not to recover your gamertag from LIVE untill after you have fixed this original corrupted one. Doing so will prevent you from ever being able to add those achievements to your gamerscore.

    Step 4:
    Once you are ready to move your Profile back to a Unbanned Console hook the hard drive back up to the PC. Repeat steps 1 & 2. This new profile will have all the achievements you just obtained on it.

    Step 5:
    Open "CON Flag Remover"
    Click "Open Profile". Browse for the file you just got in Xplorer360.
    Click "Remove Flags".

    Step 6:
    Open "Xbox 360 Hash Block Calculator"
    Click "File>Open"
    Open the file you just removed CON Flags From
    Click "Tools>Calculate Hash Blocks"


    Step 7:
    Open Xplorer360, open you hard drive. Navigate to where your profile is stored. Drag the file you you have edited onto the Xplorer360 window. Tell it to replace the file if asked. Disconnect hard drive from PC and reconnect to Xbox.

    It may take up to 30 minutes before your new score is seen by friends or on XBOX.com.

    This must be done each time hard drive is connected to a banned console. Its a bit of a pain but does make it so you can continue to get achievements on a banned console.

    To fix a game save, just extract it using "Xplorer360". Then use "CON Flag Remover" to fix it. Then make sure its all ok using "Xbox 360 Hash Block Calculator". If everything checks out, place it back onto your HDD disc / memory unit and enjoy.

    Default Gamertag not uploading to Live

    I had only ever used a banned console but recently purchased an new console to play live. I completed the steps in the tutorial and moved my profile over to the new xbox. I then signed up for xbox live with this profile. My gamertag, avatar, achievements and gamerscore all appeared fine but when I sign in to Live they disappear.

    Can anyone help? Thanks for your time.

    So you only see one profile right? and when your signed in with that profile disconnected from live the achievements still show on the dash? (the main screen where you see the DVD and such)

    Never had a banned console but whats corrupted on it? I think you just have to un-corrupt individual saves / profiles like in this tutorial.
    Phone: Galaxy Nexus - 16gb - bootloader unlocked & rooted - running Cyanogenmod 11 (Android 4.4)
    Tablet: Asus Transformer Prime - 32gb - rooted - running Cyanogenmod 10.2 (Android 4.3)
    360: Jasper - 1tb drive - jtag hacked running the 16547 dash (thanks to XeBuild)
    360: Falcon - 500gb drive hacked with hddhackr, not flashed

    Yes 1 profile. Signed in, disconnected from live and I can see the games I have achievements for and the number of achievements. I can't view the achievements though. I can see my gamerscore and my avatar. Sign in to live and my avatar goes to the ghosted outline and gamerscore is at 0 with no achievements. I followed the tutorial and loaded my fixed profile on to the new xbox with a mem stick. Profile read as ok - after trying to sign in to live - go to profile and it now reads Corrupted.

    Thats probably the problem, it would appear the profile is partly corrupted if you can not view the actual achievements. I'm not sure how that can be fixed really. Do you still have a backup of the offline profile before you converted it to a live profile, maybe you could check that and see if the achievements are viewable and try again.

    When your console is banned they "corrupt" your HDD. When you look at your memory in system setting it says you must format it. I've tried on a console and on my pc but it is still rejected by my 360.

    hey everybody and hey InsaneNutter!
    Been lurking here for quite a while and i would like to thank you, InsaneNutter, for your awesome tutorials (like the custom HDDs turning into Xbox360 HDDs one)!
    I am contemplating buying a cheap used unbanned 360 from ebay to play live again. I will most likely buy an arcade edition, because i do already use a 320GB drive in my banned console with my main profile on it. So i guess Arcade for 70bucks [€] will do it for me....
    my question is now: do i have to do the same steps as mentioned here? are all my savegames and achievements from my after-banned time corrupt?
    because i was using the original 20GB HDD the time i've been banned. (that was like 2009 or so)
    a couple of days ago, i made a 320GB HDD my new Xbox360 hard drive and copied all my stuff on it from the old HDD.
    so if i understood this right, the information that the saves and achievements are corrupted is stored in the saves/achievement themselves?
    so i have to unflag e very single save i have made since 2009? even the ones i made with original games? (just completed GOW2 on insane and i would grudgingly lose this)
    the fact that all my stuff is on a new hard drive that had no connection to my ban now, changes nothing?

    thanks in advance!

    Yup basically you need to un-flag everything, including any profiles on that console. Anything that console touches will become corrupt if the console changes it (aka you save a game, unlock an achievement and so on)

    Hey, i bought a second console like mentioned and i have some questions again
    right now i am backupping and flag removing my profile and savegames from the banned xbox.
    lets say i remove the flags from the gamerscore profile and the gears of war 3 savegame and copy them back on the HDD.
    if i put the HDD back in my banned xbox and play another game, like Portal, the savegame from GOW3 should not be touched by the xbox am i right?
    so if i put the HDD in the unbanned Xbox to play GOW3 afterwards, the saves are still unflagged because the banned xbox didnt change them? (The GOW3 saves, not the Portal saves) The Portal saves are corrupt because they had been made with the banned xbox.
    to sum this up: do i only have to unflag the saves i make with the banned xbox, to be able to play them on my original xbox? what happens with corrupted saves from my banned xbox that i dont use in the unbanned box? do they get removed?
    can i use the corrupt saves again in my banned box?

    Gears 3 saves to the profile, although does create checkpoint save files (i think anyway) so you will have to uncorrupt your profile every time you do anything on the banned console. I think you will only need to re un-corrupt saves the banned console touches, i cant be 100% as i dont have a banned console.

    Corrupt save games will just not show up on the legit console in game, they will still be there if you look under the "memory" option in system settings.

    Hey, I can't open the Xplorer 360, it says there is a file missing. How do you open it?

    hey, just wanted to say that the Gears 3 checkpoints seem to be corrupted after flag removing.
    i tried both, removing flags just from the profile file and from the checkpoints and data file in the gears 3 folder, nothing helped.
    but i am still able to choose the chapters i already played and start them over new, so i guess it works ok at least for me

    edit: of course i ran the hash block calc over every file after unflagging them

    Hey I have a couple of questions. My banned xbox is a 120gb elite and I'm buying now an 250gb slim. So can I uncorrupt the files from my old hard drive and then use the transfer cable again to transfer them to my slim? Or can I copy the files I want with an usb, uncorrupt them, and then paste them in the new xbox?
    And well another question. I think the new dashboard always asks you to recover you gamertag. What do I have to do? Uncorrupt my gamertag, paste it in the new hard drive and then recover the gamertag?

    I'm actually not very experienced using xplorer360 except for the time I downloaded the gears of war 3 beta. Please help me.

    Yes you can use a usb drive or transfer cable, it makes no difference. You just need some way to get the file on your PC.

    Just un corrupt your gamertag the same as your saves.

    If your gamertag is not corrupted it has worked

    Remember make a backup before you do anything, then you can always restore the backup if you mess up

    You transfer it to the new Xbox and that is it, no need to recover it from Xbox Live.

    Use Xbox 360 USB Storage Explorer.

    Presuming you have configured the drive for use in the 360 it should work fine.

    Thanks xzKinGzxBuRnzx for this guide, I have done what you have said NOT to do in section 3B...

    As the post was origianlly written back in 2010, Is there now any way around the fact that already recovered my gamer tag on a new console?

    My old console was banned for around 2 years, I finally got round to buying a new console and one of the first things I did was to recover my gamer tag.
    I then realised I need a data transfer cable and thats when I discovered that the data shows as corrupt

    ive followed the guide using the usb extractor and con flag says flags removed however hashblock calculator shows the last 2 blocks as false and the profile is still corrupt. not sure if it was a banned console that caused it or not and cant access the email account that it registered to recover. Dont care about the gs just the profile and live/live points registered. Any suggestions?

    You can't use a banned account on XBox Live anymore, however you can uncorrupt the gamertag.

    Its not banned that I know of its just corrupt and I can't uncorrupt it following this guide. I've run through conflag and when I check the hash block the bottom 2 fail. I can't recover as I can't remeber the password as it was years ago and the email account I used is no longer active
