Team Jungle: 'Samsung iXtreme LT on the way' and Key Verification Routines

Team Jungle posted an update on their twitter page:Sammy Lt on the way, no ETA. JF Team adding our key verification routines More details about the key verification routines was posted on their forums:Recently, c4eva contacted us with a proposal for a key verification procedure. Basically, with known key to hand you can check it against a connected drive. These procedures have always been been there, but now we can use them to our advantage. They are clearly visible in C4eva's live logs. OK…. So we messed with the routines for a few hours as per C4eva's instructions and with a bit of to-ing and fro-ing, we got them to work. As for a known key, you should have them in your database.So we are adding a couple of routines. 1. Simply bang every key you have at the drive until it hits the right one…. Simples! It does a hundred keys in a couple of seconds…. Brutal, but effective.2. Lite-on have a unique identifier in their Inquiry. So, on a port refresh, a lite-on can be readily identified and the key returned and verified – Uber Cool –3. So we are adding an index to the KeyDB against the drive barcode, to take advantage of 2 above. KeyDB refreshes will also update existing entries.. The team are testing an bashing around ideas on what to do once you have the key… Official Site: http://www.jungleflasher.net | http://twitter.com/TeamJungle Original Source:...

FreeStyleDash v2.0 Current Status and Release Information

From Helldoc's Blog: You guys keep asking about an eta : we have no ETA and probably wont have. Working on FSD is a hobby for all the team, so we never know much time we can put on it. Current Status :* Its pretty hard to give an overall status… Media player is still not in there (JQE is working on this, but still not committed the code)* Recent games list still need to be totally redone. Some skin work need to be done to have a dynamic number of tabs. We still need to experiment and try to figure out how to get stock dash recently played list. If we cant do easily we'll probably just add a last time played datetime to each game and use this.* Favorites : Still need to be 100% rewritten.* Game type switching : Still need to be 100% rewritten* Copy DVD : Still need to adapt FSD 1.XX code and properly clean. Currently not working.* File Manager : Working but we want to change the way it behave (should be back to drive list instead of having to use shoulder button to switch drive)* Nand flasher : working great* About : Still need some work but will be quick.* Game List : Games are listed but not sorted. Everything still need to be plugged in (boxart, game description, preview). I think game renaming feature broke in some previous rev, will need to fix it.* Built-In Indexer : Need to add screenshots and preview movie with proper settings.* HTTP : Still having some freeze issue and need to tweakt it a bit, otherwise its working great. Need to add priorites to the download queue.* XeX extraction : Working great.* Skin Edit Mode : Working great.* Skin customisation : Working great.* RSS Reader : Still need some work.* Internal XML Reader :...

NAND Flasher 360 for Windows v1.0.0

Trancy of modcontrol.com released NAND Flasher 360 for Windows: What is the NAND Flasher 360 for Windows?The NAND Flasher 360 is a NAND -flash program for MS Windows. With this program you can update to a new version of XBReboot within minutes over USB. With a 16 MB NAND this takes about 8min, Including three extractions steps and one for writing. the Data gets verified for each extraction and writing step. 256/512 MB NANDs take round about 16mins (approx. 128 KB/s). Bad blocks automatically get moved to the appropriate positions (Bad block management).This works for the small as well as the larger NANDs (16/256/512MB). The program also extracts the KV and Config data from the current NAND and writes it to the XBRreboot.bin file. The function "write only valid data" speeds up the writing process. Empty blocks (0xFF) are no longer handled when this function is selected! This results in a 64MB large NAND file being overwritten almost as fast as a 16MB file. Information on the hardware and NAND is also displayed. Features:– Simple, easy to use interface (a lot of the more complicated stuff gets done automatically)– Displays information on the hardware and NAND– Compatible with all USB NAND flashing devices– Possible to easily add additional languages– Extracting and writing of the NAND memory within minutes– Bad blocks automatically get relocated (for all NAND sizes, 16/256/512MB)– KV and Config files get patched automatically– Verification process which results in very safe, virtually error-free read and write processes– Deletion of the Memory Unit (MU) partition– Only relevant blocks get written, unnecessary writing of empty blocks is avoided. This speeds up the overall writing process and preserves the NAND memory as well.– Extraction and overwriting of the entire NAND– Dumping of the KV and Config data– KV and Config file gets created!– Possible to only extract and overwrite the first...

CK3 Probe II Tutorial – MRA MODE (Liteon 83850V2 & 93450)

CK3 Probe II Tutorial – MRA MODE (Liteon 83850V2 & 93450) Instructions Here is the method to do a full dump of your Liteon drive using the CK3 Probe II (MRA) Method. This has been tested working on ALL drives including  83850 v2 & 93450 (it works on the older 74850, 83850 v1 but there is no need to do an MRA dump of those drives – it's already proven that the laser calibration data was just manufacturer data and does not have any bearing on the fw at all) – including BOTH the MXIC & WINBOND chipsets (Some competitors products do not have the Probe v1 function, do not have the Multi-R switch and do not have circuit protection – so be aware of the differences before you purchase.) Recommended Tools (Sponsored by ModTraders) CK3 Pro: http://www.modtraders.co.uk/xecuter-ck3pro-rev-d.html CK3 Probe II: http://www.modtraders.co.uk/xecuter-ck3-probe-v2.html Fiberglass Scratch pen: http://www.modtraders.co.uk/xecuter-fiberglass-scratch-pen.html Xacto Knive Set: http://www.modtraders.co.uk/16pc-xacto-style-knive-set.html Before you use the CK3 Probe II we recommend that you make sure your PC SATA setup is working correctly. So connect the CK3 Pro to the DVD drive and connect the SATA cable to your SATA card/motherboard and check Jungle Flasher to see if there is any communication. If all is well this is what it should look like: We are assuming that you have opened up your Liteon DVD drive and taken the PCB out ready for the procedure. 1. This is how you connect the CK3 Probe II to the CK3 Pro. Make sure the OP Switch is in the UP position and switch the mode to MRA. If you power on the CK3 Pro you will see that the CK3 Probe II BLUE POWER LED is on and the MRA GREEN NORMAL LED is on (IF the RED LED is Lit, OP-Switch is in WRONG position!). This shows that everything is functioning. You should now turn the CK3 Pro power OFF. MULTI-R SWITCH: We recommend you...

freeBOOT v0.032

A new version of freeBOOT v0.03x has been released (a patched-9199 rebooter for all JTAG-exploitable 360s). What's new/fixed:* fixed profile corruption* fixed xb1 emu* updated xellous General Features:* updated to kernel 2.0.9199* now supports all consoles and flashing solutions (ikari)* removed memory protectionsCode can be executed and modified anywhere in the range from 0x80000000 to 0x9FFFFFFF. This can be used to create game trainers and will allow for porting of emulators, which rely on dynamic compilation.2 different patches 1 with this: xbox1 emu doesn't, 1 without xbox1 emu does work* encrypted DevKit XEXes are now working* includes dash launch patch* LIVE/PIRS/GOD content fully working* internal security breach reports deactivated (Redline99)* easier image generation process (ikari)* ibuild can now also generate single flash XeLL and original images (ikari) A bit more info about the fixes/changes in this release: This is a fixed set of patches for freeBOOT 0.031. It addresses profile corruption and Xbox 1 emulator compatibility. Unfortunately, you will need to choose between the functionality of the memory protection patch and the ability for full compatibility with Xbox originals, you cannot have both. Two sets of patches have been included, you may use the ones that fit you best. Profile corruption has been fixed completely, but understand that if you have anything previously signed by a banned keyvault, the container will be console locked to it (corrupted). There are a number of free tools to fix those profiles, but you should notice that the console is no longer rejecting containers from everything but itself. Possibly these patches can fix E79 issues (dashlaunch changes), but since we have not experienced any similar issues, it's hard to test. To those experiencing frequent or sporadic E79 issues (specifically on Zephyrs), it has been reported that using this alternate wiring with voltage regulation may solve the issue: see here Official Site: n/a, by...

NAND-X JTAG Kits Update

Many users have asked us about the different JTAG kit designs that we mentioned yesterday. We are sending a bunch of different variations out to many different testers of varying skill over the next few days so we will have the perfect universal solution for you confirmed by next week. Not only are there versions designed for the top of the Xbox motherboard but we've also designed variations for the alternate points on the bottom of the motherboard, using BAT41 diodes where necessary and utilizing a 3 mode Multi-R resistor feature (0Ω / 330Ω  / 470Ω). Here's a sample of the various versions: To confirm (again), a JTAG Kit is INCLUDED with NAND-X. It is a complete package with everything you need with an MSRP of $34.95. Further kits will of course be available at a very reasonable...

Xecuter LT CLIP, LT SWITCH 2, CK3-CP Update, NAND-X JTAG Update, CK3 Probe 2 Update

We have been extremely busy these past few weeks, so we figured we'd give you one big update to keep you up to speed with whats going on at the Xecuter factory. 1. Xecuter LT Clip After a great deal of brainstorming we are pleased to finally announce the perfect solution for all Liteon DVD drives. Utilizing a completely innovative design we have been able to create a special clip that simply plugs onto the Liteon PCB with no wires, no solder and no conductive glue. Simply make your MRA hack trace cuts and connect the Xecuter LT Clip – that's it. We have even included a continuity tester into the circuit. Push a button and if its a Red LED = Bad Trace Cuts, a Green LED = Good Trace Cuts The Xecuter Clip has been designed to work with both the new CK3 Probe 2 and also the new LT Switch 2. Available at the end of April. 2: LT Switch 2 The latest design in the best selling LT Switch series of products. The LT Switch v2 goes hand in hand with the LT Clip. Once the clip is installed you simply plug the LT Switch v2 into the the DVD drive via its own special DVD Power cable. Note: This does not replace the LT Switch v1.5, it operates the same as the current LT Switch v1.5 which includes the essential Multi-R feature for those difficult 93450 drives – it is designed specifically for the users who don't want to do any soldering or have to take any major risks with their DVD drive. It doesn't get any easier than this ! 3. CK3-CP Update The long awaited CK3-CP is in its final stages of development. Now includes complete Jungle Flasher integration with full LCD output and its own custom designed menus. Imagine just a...

XeXtractor v0.20

HellDoc released XeXtractor: While doing the FSD2.0 XEX extraction lib, i made a pc software that do multiple operation on the xex. I think this is something that could be usefull to the 360 community as my app do more than XEXTool and code is a lot more simple. Only problem is that my software is not really user driven, therefore, i decided to clean it up, and release XeXtractor : a cleaner way to handle xex and its component. With each release I'll bundle some sample class file that describe bits of the xex struture. XeXtractor v0.10:-First Release-Extract XUIZ files-Sample class included : XUIZ.cs-XUIZ files are containers for visual data (xur, png…) included mostly in the dashboard xex files.

Title Id Folder Renamer

CLK Rebellion released Title Id Folder Renamer: So whenever I started working on this (maybe it was like an hour ago?), I was really bored and wanted to code something, this is the first thing that came to mind… Basically, what this program does is it lets you select a folder that has subfolders with game title ID's (so like if you dragged a profile folder off of your hard drive and it contains all folders for your games), then it will get the ACTUAL game name from Xbox.com, and after that you can choose to:-Rename folder as original name + game name (looks like FFFFFFFF ; GameName)-Rename folder as game name-Rename folder as custom formatting So, I'm tired as hell (when I got done coding this I didn't even know what I was working on), tested like one part of this, and I'm pretty sure it works, but if something doesn't work, I'll fix it later..
