Thread: Hack a 250gb, 320gb or 500gb Sata harddrive to work in the Xbox 360 and Xbox 360 Slim

    This tutorial is NOT built for hddhackr.exe version 1.30. Use hddhackr version 1.25 for this tutorial...that v 1.30 link should be removed.

    If you want to use v 1.30:

    Run hddhackr and note the port your 250GB is on. The port is the alphanumeric sequence in bold:

    0) 0x09E0 SATA Sec Master WDC WD2500BEVT-00ZCT 11.01A11

    Flash it using the method described in the tutorial. You will notice it didn't ask you to create partitions 0/2/3. Because it didn't! Go ahead and restart your computer as it tells, BUT boot into the drive with hddackr on it again. YOU need to create those three partitions. Do not type in "hddhackr" at the C:\ prompt. Instead, type this and repleace 09E0 with your own port:

    hddhackr C 09E0 A0

    This will create the three partitions. If you're using Xplorer to put some files back/restore Partition 2, it will most likely give you an error like "FatX drive not found" or something. BEFORE using Xplorer 360 to put your files BACK, you need to put this new, hddhackr'd drive into your Xbox 360, format it via Drive Settings or whatever, and create a new offline profile.

    This will format the drive as FatX and create the necessary folders. I don't know if you need to make a new offline profile, but I did.

    THEN you may replace Partition 2 with Xplorer 360 and your profiles/save games with Xplorer 360 250GB edition.

    Whew...this guide needs to be updated! It does NOT work as wrttien.

    I'm able to get in DOS and pull up HDDHACKR, but when asked for the number at the beginning my hard drive I want to hack says Hitachi something something, even though its a WD Scorpio Blue 2500BEVT right out of the packaging. I tried looking into the Bios for my laptop, but can't find where to change the settings. I use a HP Pavilion dv9000. I also hooked it up via USB case. Any suggestions?

    Okay so I used v 1.30 and flashed it, then tried to create the partitions manually, but it gave me an error. I tried restoring the drive with the undo file, but it gives me "Can't write firmware to drive! DRQ Error: 0x0816"

    I'm out of ideas and hopefully not totally screwed my hdd.

    Another question.

    Okay, so I downloaded all the files and renamed the files HDDSS_250GB.BIN to HDDSS.BIN, and then restarted my computer.
    I get to the part with Windows Millennium Emergency Boot, and type in the words hddhackr and pressed enter.
    Nothing appears after that? The screen stays the same and doesn't show me my other drives?

    My western digital is connected with a usb at the moment.

    Yes, the dos is on the flashdrive. I booted off from that.
    I'm guessing then I can't use this?

    Yeah i bought Battlestations Pacific on my Australian account & it downloads and plays great. I think my other account is Russian?
    Any way i can get my xbox to download the games without bein corrupt? I dont really care about online play. Maybe a Russian IP?

    Thanks Rick

    Edit: Sorry its not linked to Russia, Its linked to the United States. Any way i can get a proxy to download the games without bein corrupt?

    Hi, I have an original 250GB HDD from the MW2 limited edition it was working fine but then it started to run slowly so I "cleared the cache" after that the drive show as "unformatted" I try to format it but it returns to "unformatted" so I connect it to my PC via USB(transfer Cable) and format it with windows 7 disk manager and then use "fat32format" for fat32 as a tutorial I read recommended, connect it back to the xbox format it ... and nothing I have the same problem.

    Now here is my question:

    If I use the methods from here and flash a HDDSS.BIN file etc and hddhackr etc... It could work? Should it try that? i mean this is for modded HDDs, the one that I have was originally for the xbox. Note that when I connected the drive for the first time to my PC it didnt show any partition, I lose my original HDDSS.BIN file when I format the drive from my PC?. If I didnt deleted it, how can I extract it? for this purposes.

    Sorry for my english, I hope that anyone could help me =( or Maybe I need to forget my xbox drive and use it as an external HDD =(.

    Default How to Flash on a Mac

    I can verify that you definitely can use a Mac to flash the drive. In my case, the SATA PCI card I ordered off eBay never arrived (it's been over 30 days now-coming from Hong Kong), so i got tired of waiting and decided to see if I could use one of my Macs.

    There are 2 ways that I know of at this time, for flashing on a Mac.
    Easiest (and most expensive): Buy the Xecuter USB Pro from Team Xecuter ($60) and use it under Bootcamp
    Least Expensive: Use rEFIt to boot from a bootable DOS flash drive

    All the information needed it already out there, but it's a pain gathering it all together and working out the kinks. Hopefully, this saves someone else some time.


    The hardest part for me was finding a Mac that could boot from DOS on a flash drive. It seems a hit and miss type of thing, but I suspect most recent Macs will work just fine.

    I tried 2 models. A late 2007 MacBook (2,1) did NOT work. A 2009 Mac Mini did work. However, anyone who's taken a Mac Mini apart will know what a complete pain in the @ss it can be to swap the hard drive (although it's a whole lot easier than the older iBooks). I recommend finding a more recent Mac Laptop instead, or even a Mac Pro, which would obviously be the ideal option.

    Steps:
    1) Download rEFIt from: rEFIt - An EFI Boot Menu and Toolkit

    2) Burn it to a CD-RW

    3) Create a bootable DOS flash drive, using the instructions in the tutorial

    4) Replace the Mac's hard drive with the drive you'll flash (in my case, it was a WD3200BEVT). DO NOT HAVE ANY OTHER HARD DRIVE ATTACHED!!!

    5) Plug the flash drive in the Mac's USB port

    6) Turn on the Mac

    7) Immediately insert the CD

    8) Immediately hold down the option key

    9) You'll see the rEFIt icon pop up. Select that.

    10) You'll then see a icon for the flash drive (I think the label says something about "legacy OS"). Select that.

    11) Run hddhackr and follow the rest of the tutorial to flash the drive.

    12) After turning off the computer, put the flashed drive in a USB or Firewire enclosure, replace the Mac's hard drive, and boot into Bootcamp.

    13) Follow the rest of the tutorial for transferring files.

    A few things to note:
    a) Based on all the problems people have reported with hddhackr 1.30, I used 1.25. Worked like a charm.
    b) After flashing the drive, I put it in my Xbox and reformatted before restoring partition 2, just in case.
    c) I used Hoffman's partition 2, since I didn't have an existing Xbox drive.
    d) rEFIt does not seem to work properly if you have a Bootcamp partition on the Mac. No matter what other legacy OS partition you select, the Mac will always boot up from the Bootcamp partition, if it's attached. Yet another reason to make sure no other hard drive is attached, other than the one you're going to flash.
    e) It's also possible to partition the flash drive so that rEFIt is on the 2nd partition, eliminating the need for a CD. However, the software for creating the bootable flash drive that's linked in this tutorial does not allow for a partitioned flash drive. You'll have to find some other way to created the flash drive. I used the CD because it was the easiest.
    f) Some anti-malware software may complain that Xplorer 360 Extreme is malware. That's because so many copies of this on the various file share sites ARE infected. Make sure you only get it from the link in the tutorial, and scan it before using. You may have to turn off you anti-malware software to use it.
    g) My Win XP setup complained that a .dll file was missing, whenever I tried to run Xplorer 360 Extreme. A quick search of the .dll (can't recall the name) gave me a link to a downloadable copy from a reputable site. I put the file in the same folder as the application, and it worked just fine.

    Key words: Boot Intel Mac DOS Flash Drive

    Thanks for the great guide.

    I managed to convert a spare 120GB wd drive to use in my xbox 360 slim 4G. I use HddHackr v1.3 to flash the firmware and run the HddHackr 2nd time to create the partition manually. That works great, now I have additional 106GB of free space!!!

    FYI guys, anyone see that Gears of War 3 limited edition console will launch with a 320gb hard drive? Looks like we'll be getting a nice space upgrade this fall! Can't wait till the security sector gets ripped and we can all have 320gb hard drives!

    EDIT#2: It took me five hours but I finally finished. Turns out my computer couldn't see the drive, so I switched to my dads and it worked perfectly. I had to run it a second time to partition the drive, though.

    EDIT: Got it working until it searches for ATA devices and it doesn't find the hard drive. I read the tut and it said switch it to Legacy if you have that, in my BIOS there is a "Legacy IDE" option and if I switch to it and reboot nothing happens.

    I get to the part where it says, "Starting Windows Millennium Emergency Boot...", but after that it says, "Your program caused a divide overflow error. If problem persists, contact your program vendor."
    I'll try and make the usb boot device again and see what happens.

    So I went ahead and followed through these directions with a 250GB WD2500BEKT drive. Everything seemed like it worked fine, but when I put it into my Xbox it only shows up as a 762MB drive? Any ideas what I may have done wrong? I was previously using the drive in a laptop so I'm not sure if it has to be reinitialized somehow before or what. All I did was format it and start the hack instructions.

    Hey, flashed it, all works fine. But want to undo it, did it awhile ago so I don't have that undo.bin
    WD3200BEKT

    Is there any other possible way to restore it to original settings. I can format it for windows but it'll only recognize it as the hitachi 250gb.

    What if someone pm'd me the undo.bin file if they have the exact same hdd, will that work? If anyone has it could they send please and thank you.

  35. #1073

    Default Probably already asked... but there's a lot of pages and i may have missed it

    I have a WD Black 2500 BEKT and I have followed the tutorial as carefully as I could but when I put the drive in my Xbox, it wouldn't recognize it and I couldn't even find it in storage devices.

    I tried re-flashing the firmware and it says it already matches and should work... any ideas?

    Hi i have followed the tutorial and everything was going fine until i tried to restore partition 2 it just takes ages i have left it for 30 mins and still nothing is this normal? If not does anybody have any ideas for how to solve this perhaps a different partition 2 to restore from? or is there a way i can manually copy the files without restoring the partition.

    Thanks to all your work, especially to InsaneNutter and rick550. For me there is one question left. I've bought a new Xbox 360 4GB Slim and an additional WD Blue BPVT 250GB drive. Do I need (or is it recommended) to create the 0/1/2 partitions for this box (slim)? What about the partition 2 backup/restore procedure only covered by the guide for the original Xbox 360 versions? I'd expect that the Xbox 1 emulator (if even still existing) is already sitting on the 4GB flash drive. That means I neither need partitions nor the partition 2 backup/restore?

    run hddhackr and use the create partitions option then try to transfer partition 2 *this will erase anything you copied to the hard drive

    If the 0/1/2 partitions are not created when you hack the drive, re run hddhackr and create them. The Xbox 1 emulator is on Partition 2 of all 360 hard drives, the 4gb slim can not play Xbox 1 games without you adding a proper hard drive to the console. The 4gb of space on the slim is basically an internal memory card.

    So if hacking a drive you need to restore partition 2 if you want Xbox 1 support, the slim is no different what so ever.

    XB1: Launch console - 500gb internal drive
    360: Jasper - 1tb drive - jtag hacked running the 16547 dashboard
    360: Falcon - 500gb drive hacked with hddhackr, not flashed

    Have a question or need help? Post on the forum, thats why it's here. I will only reply to Digiex related issues via PM, not general help requests.
    If I helped you say thanks by signing up for Dropbox with my referral link, we will both get an extra 500mb of space for free.
