I have a Xbox HD, which is locked, and i don't have the eeprom. It was accidentaly wiped of data (everything i think). I'm wondering, can i possibly use XBHDM, to rebuild it, if i get a new eeprom? Or does the HD HAVE to be unlocked first?

Yes, it needs to be unlocked with the original key before anything else can be done.

So, he would absolutely HAVE to unlock it before, he can ever format it?

If the xbox still boots, you can also hotswap.

Read the hotswapping and xboxhdm tuts in my sig.


If it doesn't boot at all, there's no way to unlock it without the eeprom.

You cant do anything with a drive that is locked, as it doesnt allow access to the data, this also means....you cant format.
