well.. this is kind of same type of installer that are available for gamesave installers, just for xboxhdm. Started working on it today.. The difference between UDE-installer for xboxhdm and this installer is that, user will have many options and choose what types to hack/bios loader to install..

Features:
UDE2+PBL
UDE2+NKP
UXE+PBL
UXE+NKP

the installer will create shadowc.img in the E:/shadowc/ directory. users will have 3 option of building shadowc unlike gamesave based installers. Users can create shadowc.img from their existing C partition, users can create shadowc.img from the C drive files available in "linux>C" folder. It can also create blank shadowc.img, NKptacher will boot fine. after Nkpatcher boots to dashboard, users can ftp C drive filoes in shadowc.

This is looking great.... It will make a nice addition to XboxHDM.

I like the shadowC options....

Why the UDE2? Does it prove necessary on some boxes?

smile.gif UDE2 is not necessary.. I might remove this option later, I think it will create some confusion among new users.. I am in U.S so I mod all xbox's with UDE2.. biggrin.gif

How did you get the shadowc.img file made in linux?

My idea for shadowC i was writing it for opendash linux part..
CODE

#!/bin/sh

###            This script is for creating ShadowC              ###

### Edit this how ever you want but don't remove this THANKS!   ###
###################################################################
blink grxg

## Lets make the shadowC folder
echo -e "Creating E:/shadowc/"
mkdir /mnt/E/shdowtst

# mkdir /mnt/E/shadowc
echo -e "Done"
sleep1
blink gggx

echo -e "Creating shadowc.img"
mkfs.fatx /mnt/C/* /mnt/E/shdowtst/shadowc.img
echo -e "Done"
blink oooo
sleep1
clear
exit


You can also create it like an addon like mine which won't require remaking/downloading the initrd.. Link insig.

It can be done in several ways.. I used "dd" to dump a 1:1 copy of C drive as a .img file ( got teh idea after seeing sources of driveimage utils).. or it can be done by creating a fatx partition image and then use 'loop" to mount it and then copy the files from cd.

It works, as I was testing yesterday.. I made a shadowc.img with xboxhdm in vmware. then transferred the image to my real xbox and NKP could use it fine..

Smart.. Better idea then what i had.. That way you don't need format the folder while dumping to it hence mkfs.fatx.. Cool.. Can't wait to see that code ;-).

does that code work?.. I never tested and know very little about opendash project.. however my idea of code is:

CODE
I dont know about opendash.. but if you want to use this code, the kernel of opendash must have loop module support..

the correct code would be:

echo -e "Creating shadowc.img"
modprobe loop
dd if=mkfs.fatx of=/mnt/E/shdowtst/shadowc.img bs=512k count=x
mount -t fatx /mnt/E/shdowtst/shadowc.img / /your dir/
cp -R /patch to C/* /path to shadowc mounted/  
echo -e "Done"
blink oooo
sleep1
clear

Nope it's yet to work.. I think i need to remove the /C/* the star.. just /C i havn't had time to mess with it.. Nice code BTW and yea the opendash linux i ripped from ltools does support loop.

I besically added a series of commands.. it even goes much more lengthier in the installer than this code here.. but nobody has to see the code.. tongue.gif biggrin.gif
