    Hey Hoffmann,

    is this partition2 from Hitachi, Seagate or from another Xbox HDD Manufactor?

    I have a original partition2 from a Seagate and i compared both files (your partition2.bin and mine) but there are mismatches.
    The 250GB HDDSS.BIN I use is from an Hitachi HDD, maybe its safer to have an partition2.bin from an Hitachi drive too, if you think about Xbox Live.

    ;) i'm just asking. my i have downloaded two partition2 dumps and i dumped my originale 20gb Xbox HDD.

    I compared them, but they are not equal - thats why I'm asking. How can they missmatch? Shouldn't they be exactly the same? Maybe the partition2 depends on the harddrive manufactor?

    The Xbox emulator does receive updates, after it is updated that would more then likely modify the size of the space in partition 2.

    According to XBL, this is the most up to date version of the emulator.

    Its very unlikely anyones partition 2 will match this one, not that it matters anyway.

    Partition 2 also contains the avatar files, the avatars get updated every time there is a new dashboard update so thats one reason why they are never going to match.

    This was dumped a long time ago, however should have the latest version of the emulator.

    Explorer 360 Hangs Up When Restoring Partition 2

    First of all I'd like to say thanks for posting these instructions, they are very helpful. I am having one problem though, when I get to the part where I am actually restoring paritition 2 to my 250 GB Hitatchi HDD the progress bar dispayed on the screen with Xplorer 360 shows no progress even after running 30 minutes or more. Any idea what would cause this? I'm running XP SP 3 by the way.

    Do you have to have JTAG?
    Or could you use a normal xbox 360?
    Please reply

    If I do the process mentioned by the thread, will that get me banned or set my profile in risk? I should note that i have the 4 GB version of xbox 360 "slim" and bought a 250 chinese HDD. Also, besides the transfer cable is there another cable, or cables, i can use to connect the HDD to my computer (like say a standard sata cable)??

    I'm also curious whether or not you'll get banned on Live if you restore partition 2. I, too, have a non-official Chinese 250 GB HDD. Also, do I need to first hex edit the drive or could I just go into Xplore 360 and recover partition 2 directly? Thanks.

    1.you won't get banned for this,im currently online with the latest dashboard
    2.if xplorer 360 shows the 3 partitions then there is no need for hex editing

    Ok
    I have xp media center and I have followed this guide to a T and my games still do not work. What could I be doing wrong?

    During the process 360explorer froze up as soon as the progress bar was complete. I had to restart the program and explore the drive again in order to see the partitions content. I then explored it and it looked like it had a folder that says compatibility and some other folder.

    What I want to know is why am I still getting an error message the the games are not compatible?

    run xplorer360 extreme as admin
    open drive
    click on restore partition 2
    don't mess with any other partition or it may corrupt the drive
    test on xbox 360,it should work

    I followed your instructions exactly and now this time I'm missing partition 0. Then I put it back in the 360 and it worked but the compatibility does not work. I then formatted the drive and partition 0 is still missing. So the drive is still working in 360, it is now missing partition 0 and the partition compatibility still does not work.

    I don't know what else to do but to give up on this. It seems to work for everyone else but me. I must be missing something.
