    Default [Xbox 360] How to Flash Your HDDSS.bin in Windows

    First of all, this is NOT a method I would recommend for everyone as you can brick your drive or your computers' hard drives if you are careless. If you are trying to build a 360 drive from scratch see here first: How to hack a 250gb sata drive to work in the Xbox 360 and Xbox 360 Slim It is a fantastic tutorial written by InsaneNutter and should be used first. This tutorial is only for people who can launch HDDhacker, but it refuses to write to or read from your hard drive. This happens sometimes due to sector 16 being blank and HDDhacker thinking it's a failure to read, not a blank sector. Just make sure it's not your SATA controller first.

    This may allow you to use a non Western Digital hard drive in your 360. I have successfully done this to a Seagate model recently with no issues whatsoever. But don't count on it to work on every drive, and don't complain if you wreck your drive.

    Now with that out of the way, here's your standard disclaimer. If this tutorial works for you, great! If not, you either did something wrong, or you just have bad luck. Do not come complaining to me or blaming me if you break your hardware, you tried to modify it, not me.

    Anyway lets get to the good stuff!

    Things you will need:
    a hard drive you want to modify
    a hddss.bin appropriate to your hard drive
    a computer running Windows
    a hex editor, I used Hex Workshop (do not ask me how to pirate this software, buy it if you like it)
    a way to connect your hard drive to your computer (which you should already have)
    a bit of common sense

    For this tutorial I used a 250gb WD2500BEVS I salvaged from a dead laptop (Profit!). For my hddss.bin (signature file, security sector) I used the 250GB Hard Drive Security Sector available here. I used a USB Microsoft data transfer cable, but you could just as easily use the drive directly connected via SATA. In fact SATA is a better idea because you still have to create the partitions with HDDhacker. You can find that in the thread by InsaneNutter listed above. Finally I used Windows XP Professional 32bit. This should work in Vista or Windows 7 as well as long as you run your hex editor as administrator.


    Step 1) Connect your drive to your computer
    As stated above you can connect your new 360 hard drive to your PC in any manner that makes it visible as a device in Windows as seen below.

    The drive I'm modifying is highlighted.


    Step 2) Find and open your hex editor
    Find where you installed your hex editor and open it. Hex Workshop looks like this.



    Step 3) Find your hard drive
    In Hex Workshop, select the Disk dropdown menu and select Open Drive (or CTRL+D)
    In the Select box, switch to Physical Disks. The first time Hex Workshop is launched, it defaults to Logical Drives. So double check that you have selected Physical Disks.


    Your 360 hard drive will most likely be the last drive in your list, the size should also help you identify it. Be ABSOLUTELY sure you select your 360 hard drive on this step. If you select another drive, you could potentially lose all of the data or disable any other drive you modify.


    The Read Only box should not be selected if you wish to write a hddss.bin. If you're paranoid (or just extra careful) you can turn it on while creating your undo.bin. Just remember to turn it off again when writing your hddss.bin


    Step 4) Backup sectors 16-22
    Select the Disk dropdown menu again and choose Save Sectors.


    In the Target box, choose your backup filename and location. Most users should use undo.bin for ease of use with HDDhacker tutorials. I used hddss250.bin because the drive already had a 250gb hddss.bin on it from a previous modification.
    For Starting Sector use 16
    For Ending Sector use 22
    Results should say Sectors: 7 Size 3 KB. If it doesn't, you did something wrong.
    Click OK to create your undo.bin, it should only take one or two seconds.


    If you open the 250gb hddss.bin from digiex.net it will look like this:

    I opened the backup file I made in Hex Workshop, as you can see it's originally from a Hitachi drive, but works just fine on my WD drive.


    Step 5) Write sectors 16-22
    Make sure you disk is open with Read Only off this time, or you will not be able to write your sectors. Return to Step 3 if you opened your drive as Read Only.
    Select the Disk dropdown menu again.
    Choose Restore Sectors.


    For Source File choose the appropriate hddss.bin for your drive. For more information about the correct hddss.bin for your drive see InsaneNutters thread.
    Make sure you set sector 16 as the Starting Sector under Target Range.
    Results should once again read Sectors: 7 and Size 3 KB.


    Once you are sure you have the right hddss.bin and Starting Sector set, click Ok. Again this should only take 1 or 2 seconds to complete.


    Step 6) Return to InsaneNutter's awesome tutorial
    You have now backed up and written a 360 Hard Drive Security Sector to your 360 hard drive, but you still need to create the partitions with HDDhacker (or a FreeBoot console). Return to InsaneNutters thread as listed above to finish the modification.

    Once you're all done your drive should look something like this in the Memory menu on your 360.


    I find the Microsoft logo doesn't show up on FreeBoot consoles so it doesn't show up here. I apologize for the poor quality image; my capture card is lacking.

    I hope this tutorial helped, remember to see here FIRST as that is the safest method for modifying your hard drive.

    Enjoy!

    Nice tutorial Harcroft, hopefully this will be of help to anyone having issues with Hddhackr.

    I have added a link in the FAQ at the bottom of my tutorial.
    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.

    I kept promising to get it done, then forgetting again and again. So, I'm sorry it took so long. Please give it a try though, even just to test backing up your hddss.

    I'm also glad I managed to find time to squeeze this in. I'll try to get that Halo 2 fix up before I go to bed too. Thanks for the linkage in your FAQ.

    C to create partitions, as the firmware should already be written. I'll update it shortly.

    Now When it says [Partition 0/2/3 created succesfully] do I wait until it says Turn off computer.....or just shut off computer because nothing is showing just a green blinking underscore....there's no other option to do anything.

    Yes you can just shut your PC down from there. You could easily have found that out by reading the hddhacker thread, or taking a few seconds to read the hddhacker readme file. Please read official documentation before asking attempting modifications. I also did say this tutorial required common sense.

    I have a Seagate 250G HDD (ST9250315AS) and hence I'm trying this method instead of using hddhackr for flashing. I have followed the instructions from here for flashing using hex workshop.
    1.) I've used the Hitachi 250G HDDSS.BIN that is used in the linked tutorial to flash into Sector 16-22.
    2.) I have created partitions using hddhackr
    3.) The partitions can be detected using Xplorer360
    4.) Without any restoration of files or partitions, I've inserted the SATA HDD into the Xbox 360 slim's slot

    But the xbox 360 slim doesn't show the drive in the memory unit... just shows the built-in 4GB. Can you Harcroft please share how you were able to use the Seagate drive??
    Is there some step that I'm missing for the xbox360 slim to detect the drive??

    Hello,

    Doing it on other-than-WD drives is a no-go. I tried it with a Seagate drive and it seems that even if I write the 16-22 sectors and create the partitions, the XBOX still wouldn't recognize it. Also, all WD drives that are flashed via hddhackr are then seen by the computer (in both Windows and the BIOS) as Hitachi / Fujitsu (depending on the hddss.bin file used) and there's no way (yet) to flash the firmware of a non-WD drive with hddhackr. Other ways of modifying the firmware aren't really known to us mortals, as it implies modifying data in "negative" logical sectors.

    The xbox must be rejecting the drive when it sees it as Seagate at boot time. Too bad, would've been great to use non-wd drives laying around.

    Thank you very muchfor showingthe possible.Just did the samewith Hitachi HTS542580K9SA00.
    But there is a significant difference, yesterday accidentally flashed a drive hdddhackr on big brother WD. He even changed its name to the BIOS Fujitsu, and here also was Hitachi. hmmm....

    After work, try to run it on your XBox and see what came of it

    p|s Sorry my Bad English

    I can confirm that this method worked on my Hitachi 0J11562 640GB, thanks Harcroft!

    Actually it works in hddhacker as well, I verified both methods. When hddhacker says that it can only operate with WD drives, it asks you if you want to retry flashing. It then says that to resend the flash command, power your drive off/on after hitting enter. It sends a successful flash, all you have to do is restart hddhacker and enter the create partitions command.
    On a side note, I didn't send the undo.bin command so I'm not sure whether it works from hddhacker or not.
    But it does work using Harcroft's method!

    You mean in case I ever want to use the HDD in a PC?
    Fortunately I got started by following Harcroft's Hex Editor method, and so I did manage to save the undo.bin. Just didn't get a chance to see if you can save it from hddhacker.

    I actually have this hitachi drive(model) that is in the hex editor... its from my macbook pro after i replaced the hard drive



    I tried using the hddhackr and it said it flashed the drive but couldn't back it up and never asked about the partition, so I choose that option and it said it was successful

    Put in xbox slim and no detection

    So then I did this method and still no detection


    Any ideas?

    ARG, I might of bricked my Seagate 250 gig drive. I did everything I was supposed to, I made a undo.bin file, to fix the drive if there was an issue. I used Hex Workshop to write the HDDSS.BIN firmware to the drive, then I used the other tutorial to create the partitions. The xbox will not see the drive. I am using a Regular XBOX 360 SLIM, I am getting it glitched on Friday. So I am wondering if it is just not working because I havn't jtagged or glitched my slim. Or is this supposed to work with a xbox regardless if it is glitched or not? I tried to flash the undo.bin through Hex Workshop, my drive is no longer a visable drive in windows. I can see it in Device Managaer under hard drives as USB only it no longer shows it being a 250 gig drive. I cannot flash the undo.bin back to it to fix it either. Any idea's. I also tried to flash the undo.bin through msdos and hddhackr. Says the undo.bin is the wrong size. Am I bricked?

  25. #24

    Default

    I tried to open the Hex Workshop and Went Disk, Open Drive, and it shows the Seagate drive as Physical Disk 6(0 bytes) now? So I choose it, then click ok. I get Read failure: Unable to read sector 0. The drive may not be ready, contain bad sectors, or require read permissions. Then my option are Abort, Retry, Ignore. The only option I can really choose is Ignore. It then opens the drive. Fixed Disk 0x86 <sector 0x00 of 0xFFFFFFFF> Then I try to go back to disk and restore sectors. I choose the file undo.bin(3.5kb) that I previously saved. And I get this error. The disk image and start sector will exceed the total number of sectors on the disk. only option is ok. And of course it does nothing.

    So maybe everything is perfect: And it will only work in the glitched slim. I guess I just am hoping to hear that. If this drive is supposed to be recognized in Xbox settings, storage. Then it's not and I screwed up. Anybody?

    I also tried putting the undo.bin onto the usb drive, and booted to the usb and used hddhackr and was unable to use the undo.bin there to, recieved another error about it not being the correct size. Everything seemed to of flashed correctly. Maybe everything is fine, I just cannot see it in my xbox. This drive is invisible. Is there anyway I can check or test this. Or is there a undo.bin for seagate drives. Like there is for western digital drives?

    I dont know if people are still using this forum or what not, but I have a question. I have went through all the steps you described in the tutorial above, and even went through most of the steps in InsaneNutters tutorial. My only problem is when I go to run HDDHACKR in MS-DOS, my computer just sits there and idles with the hddhackr command still on the screen. It doesnt run at all. Im not sure what I might be doing wrong. I have a Seagate 320 GB SATA drive that I want to flash to use with my 4GB 360 Slim. Can anybody please help??? Thanks in advance!!!

    Also if you are still on msn messenger, can I possibly have you screen name so we can chat more directly? Would love to get advice from the person that made this awesome tutorial. Thanks!

    The current format of a hard drive would be irrelevant correct?

  30. #29

    Default

    Correct... For instance the drive im currently doing (got kicked off pc after flashing and copying my undo.bin) still has windows installed on it... When you use the Partitions command on hddhackr it will repartion the drive into 3 partitions (a partition is like a seperate draw on a file cabinet) then format them all so yeah...

    Edit:
    Been doing a full hex edit method (manually created the partitions using hxd and used the above method to flash... i did this as i had pulled apart my 250g portable hdd in the effectively giving me both a 250g portable and a usb to sata connector and i couldnt be bothered opening up my pc) managed to reach the point where my hacked explorer beta 6 detected both partition 1 and 2... of course the xbox didnt find it (it may have been because i timed out while filling hex blocks 120EB1000 through 130EAFFFF with 00 and thus didnt get up to fixing the cluster map... ive done that now tho and ill get back to you if it works) also if it still doesnt work considering ive done everything right then either i need some data for partition 1 or the seagate hm121hi is incompatible

    Edit2: Okay either ive done something wrong or i had to do something before the hex... I only get partition 0 and 2 no 3... When apparently im meant to already have 3... It wouldnt have anything to do with the fact i cleared the partitions off the drive before starting the partition hex edits (its all unallocated space right now) would it

    So I have a working WD3200BPVT 00JJ5TO in one of my XBOX 360s and a WD3200BEVT in another one. Both were made using HDDHACKR with no issues. The other day I picked up a WD3200BPVT 80JJ5TO and got the dreaded sector 16 DRQ error. After searching for solutions I ended up in this forum (GREAT POST!) followed the Hex Workshop steps (Win 7 64/bit OS), tried to partition the drive using HDDHACKR after that......partition BSY! error. I think by now I have tried everything, I am (for the second time) copying all the sectors from my 00JJ5TO to the 80JJ5TO and got about a good hour of waiting left. Can anyone confirm that in theory this should work? I have even seen Hex Workshop stating that sector 16 say ST9320325AS instead of the Western Digital type......Windows still saw it as a WD...... I'm about to take a 9V battery to this drive and return it to the store and get anything but a 80JJ5TO on EBay.

    Okay, I'm giving up, total clone didn't work again for the second time. I compared the first 22 sectors of both drives in Hex Workshop and they seem identical, Windows still sees the 80JJ5TO as a Western Digital and the XBox doesn't recognize it at all.

    Okay, so I followed your instructions exactly using hex workshop and the 120GB.bin

    I am not able to run hddhackr on my alienware (Freezes with blinking cursor on next line when the program is run) , so I must resort to doing everything manually in hex.

    Do you know of anyone who has done that and has posted instructions on this?

    Lastly, after you flash the security sector, is the hd supposed to come up as a hitachi on device manager?


    PS I have a WD 120BEVT-00A23T0

    Thanks for all of your help. If i can figure this out, ill post a tutorial in an easier to access place.

    It might work, use the 60gb bin file.

    Great tutorial, thanks!

    I'm having some problems though.

    I recently got a new Slim. Before, I had a Elite with a 120GB hard drive. When that one broke about a year ago, thinking I wouldn't need the HDD anymore for an Xbox, I formatted it and used it as an external drive for Windows.


    Now I decided to use it again in my Slim. So I followed your tutorial and did the following:
    - Download the HDDSS.BIN for 120GB Hitachi (exactly the right one for my HDD)
    - Used HexWorkshop to replace the Sectors 16-22 with this HDDSS.BIN
    - Then formatted the HDD/created the partitions (first using HDDHackr, and when that didn't work I tried FatXPlorer.)


    All went well, valid Security Sector and all, but my Xbox does not recognize the HDD at all.



    Is there anything left I could try? Or does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
    Help is greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot in advance!

    P.S.: With "when that didn't work", I meant the xbox didn't recognize the drive. HDDHackr itself was succesful in creating the partitions. The drive was still visible in Windows though... After using FatXPlorer, it didn't show up in Windows anymore, but in Xplorer, XPort etc. as a valid Xbox drive.

    EDIT: I'm aware this isn't supposed to work with every drive. I just figured, if it worked with a Seagate model, why shouldn't it work with a drive that belonged to a Xbox360 before, and now with the right SS should be exactly the way it was when I bought it...
