Success with WD5000LPVX yesterday. Worked great!!!
I have x360 elite (fat), can i just buy official 500gb hdd which is for x360 slim, then take off hdd and put it to my elite? without any use of hddhackr?
Official 500gb hdd is about same price as WD Scorpio Blue 500gb.
Usually the 500gb by microsoft will cost around $110 while a wd 500gb will cost around $50. Maybe you're looking at a hacked wd drive for xbox 360 use. If it's by microsoft, im not sure if those cases for the slim will easily dissemble just incase you have to return it.
From previous posts i see some of the WD5000LPVX models are not working..
Just an update.. Successfully hacked WD5000LPVX-80V0TT0
Attached the original HDDSS.bin
I successfully hacked WD5000LPVX-80V0TT0 friday october 31 2014
My notes :
After hacked drive with flashing tool (HddHackr_v1.40), I must needed to create partition 0-2-3 manually with option "C"
I can't transfered partition 3 with Xplorer360Extreme2. I needed to use Party Buffalo to backup DATA directory and transfert back on new drive manually
I can use Xplorer360Extreme2 to backup and restore partition 2
Thanks a lot for this forum
PS Sorry for my english
Hello everyone, I have flashed many xbox hd for me and my friends, but they are two days that I have trouble flashing two 500GB hd LPVX series.
This is the error:
I wanted to ask if I can use on a 500GB hard drive, the file hddss.bin 320gb hard drive.
In so doing turned it from 500 to 320 GB? Or it is not possible?
Thanks for the help, and sorry for my broken english
What does the drive show up as in the bios?
I sign to this forum to say Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! 120 gig Absolutely Fantastic!
In the bios the hd is properly detected, as sata drive.
However I do not have the ability to set AHCI mode because I have the bios locked.
But I do not think that's the problem, because I have flashed other hard disk on this computer without problems.
Does it have the label as WD500 or something else?
Thanks dude, amazing guide ! How can i hack the drive WD10TPVT ( 1 tb ) if still not released the security sector of 1 tb yet ?
You can use a 1TB drive, however only 500gb of space will be usable.
Sorry if I reply late,but I was out of town for work.
Yes, there is the label WD5000BPVT 500GB.
Is that what it shows in the bios?
Thanks for the great guide. I am looking to upgrade a 20gb old style 360 for trade in. I have a WD 320gb in the approved list. Can I make it look like a 250gb by using that sector file (or some other way)? Thanks in advance.
Browsed for a bit. Does this answer my question above? (make a 320gb look like a 250gb)
Yes.but you can use the 320 file to use all of the space.
Worked like a charm. I wanted to make it look like 250 for purpose of trade in. Thank you!
can someone post the link HDDHackr v1.22 build 20091022 so i can download it the one i found on this forum says it cant be found or if you can tell me another link that will work the same. It's for a 120gb hard drive.
