Ah, you dumped the flash drive after you formated it in windows so that's just a dump of a regular FAT32 usb thumb drive.

Stick it back in the xbox, have it format it, then try to get a dump.

HexWorkshop isn't going to be able to do the dump because windows doesn't support the FATX filesystem.

If you boot up any live distro of linux you should be able to just run "dd if=sda of=thumbdrive.bin" and get a 1:1 dump.

Hex Workshop CAN make a dump of a drive without supported filesystem, as long as it gets recognized by windows as a drive. I've done it with a corrupt memory card.

I know that Xebian could be run as a live linux cd in your pc, in addition to running in your XBox. It did indeed have FatX support, but I'm not sure as to whether it's been updated with the latest 360 supporting driver. I'm not sure whether they offer the Updated FatX in Module form, but if they did, you could simply add that module to an installed linux distro I believe....

Oh, and BTW, you should rename the memory card on the 360 to something like X360MU. If we find that as plain text, it's likely to be not encrypted (but can be signed though).
EDIT: That dump got heavily compressed, 64MB to 700kb biggrin.gif Good thing, makes downloadin a lot faster tongue.gif

I know i was thinking of where i was going to host it, then i compressed it and it went down it 700kb. It made things alot eaiser. I made a dump wih hex workshop after i re formated it in the xbox. and before i formated it in the pc. It was different from the other dump. I will post it once i get home but i dont think it will help, I didn't see much in it.

Don't use "memory unit" with the dd command. That's not the real device name. It will probably be sda. If that doesn't work try sdb, sdc... ect.

Nope no go. I tried all the way to /sdk.

I think i might need to install the driver, but i can't figure out how to do it.

Edit: after reading some things abount mounting usb storage devices i dont think all the usb modules are loaded. Can anyone recommmend another distro of linux that might be better than the one i am using which is slax.

Looking at that dump it has a FATX header but what appears to be some garbage on it, probably due to it being formatted with FAT32 at some point.
I would suggest wiping it clean (restoring a zero'd image dump if that won't kill it) and formatting it in the 360, then attaching it to the pc and taking another grab. Then I'd add a save to it and then another grab for comparison purposes smile.gif

Just a thought, how about copying Hexic to your memory card, we have access to the Demo version of Hexic on the kiosk disk, Might be something good to compare agaisnt.

Using xboxdumper and your image I was able to extract the contents. Here's what the first image contained.

CODE
/name.txt  [    ] (SZ:24 CL:2 D1:07:09:50-31/12/2005 D2:07:09:50-31/12/2005 D3:07:09:50-31/12/2005)
/Content  [    ] (SZ:0 CL:3 D1:07:39:38-31/12/2005 D2:07:39:38-31/12/2005 D3:07:39:38-31/12/2005)
/E0000A4A5A5364A4  [    ] (SZ:0 CL:4 D1:07:39:38-31/12/2005 D2:07:39:38-31/12/2005 D3:07:39:38-31/12/2005)
  /FFFE07D1  [    ] (SZ:0 CL:5 D1:07:39:38-31/12/2005 D2:07:39:38-31/12/2005 D3:07:39:38-31/12/2005)
   /00010000  [    ] (SZ:0 CL:6 D1:07:39:38-31/12/2005 D2:07:39:38-31/12/2005 D3:07:39:38-31/12/2005)
    /E0000A4A5A5364A4  [    ] (SZ:102400 CL:7 D1:07:39:38-31/12/2005 D2:07:39:38-31/12/2005 D3:07:39:38-31/12/2005)


'name.txt' containing the phrase 'Memory Unit'
and the only other file: /E0000A4A5A5364A4 is a strange version of a PIRS file. Hexing through it I located a few .pngs and a compressed bit of data called 'ACCOUNT' (your xbox live account?) PNG's contained were that of a dog.. This ur gamerpicture?

Noticed your 'unformatted' dump. Here's it's contents.

CODE
J:\xbox360hdd>xboxdumper -memcard list 0 newdump.bin
/name.txt  [    ] (SZ:2 CL:2 D1:04:20:32-2/1/2006 D2:04:20:32-2/1/2006 D3:04:20:32-2/1/2006)
/Cache  [    ] (SZ:0 CL:3 D1:04:20:32-2/1/2006 D2:04:20:32-2/1/2006 D3:04:20:32-2/1/2006)

J:\xbox360hdd>xboxdumper -memcard list 1 newdump.bin
/name.txt  [    ] (SZ:24 CL:2 D1:04:21:24-2/1/2006 D2:04:21:24-2/1/2006 D3:04:21:24-2/1/2006)


All memory units should have to Fatx Partitions. One at 0x00 offset and another at 0x7ff000. It seems ur first image had the first partition corrupted. If u could, dump some more images with other files. Interested in tearing them apart.

Wow Angerwound and JoHnnyTK36, that's pretty cool ;D
Hope to see some savegame exploits smile.gif
But we first need some savegames to get dumped biggrin.gif
I'd myself try this out if I had a HD for backup if I screw up my MU for some reason biggrin.gif
Maybe we could DD the contents of the MU to a 64Mb flash drive and try it smile.gif

Yes, please make some more dumps available with different content on it. Anything u can manage to copy to the sucker. If u could, try and copy a live arcade title to it and dump (if she fits).
