Hi everyone,

To start sorry for my english, I do my best.

I found a way to make a full raw dump of your original Xbox360 games.
I didn't use a modified firmware because the existing ones are not public, and they are for only one or two models of DVD drive. My procedure use the hotswap method and a software I developed, named wxRipper.

IPB Image

So let's start with the hotswap method. I think everyone here already knows that the TOC of the original game is a fake one, so you have to load a big DVD (data or movie, more than 8Go) in your drive, then stop it (my software has a function for that), and replace by the game you want to backup.

Now the DVD drive thinks that you have a big DVD loaded, so it let you access all the Xbox DVD sectors (nearly 4000000). But because your hotswap DVD is larger than the Xbox DVD, you have to find the difference between the two DVD, to compensate the shift of the second layer (layer1).

The software has a function to find the shift, it's called 'Hotswap/Find magic number'. To do that, the software use some 'bench marks' on layer0 and layer1. These bench marks are already known by the software, and stored in a little text file (provided with the software). So for now you have to use a known game to find the magic number. When you have it, you can replace in the drive the known game by an unknown one. And if you want the software to add the unknown game to thje database, you just have to clic on 'Hotswap/Add game to database' and choose a name for the game.

For the moment, the known games are :

CODE
PGR3_PAL
QUAKE4_PAL
QUAKE4_BONUS_PAL
KAMEO_PAL
PDZ_PAL
PDZ_BONUS_PAL
CONDEMNED_PAL
CALL_OF_DUTY_2_PAL
NEED_FOR_SPEED_MOST_WANTED_PAL
FIFA_06_PAL
FINAL_FANTASY_XI_BETA_PAL


So to recapitulate all the procedure :

For a known game :
1 - Select your DVD drive in wxRipper
2 - Load your big hotswap DVD in the DVD drive
3 - Let the drive read the TOC, then stop it with 'Hotswap/Stop drive'
4 - Replace the hotswap DVD by the Xbox DVD (without eject of course)
5 - Clic on 'Hotswap/Find magic number' and wait until the software give you the magic number and add a list of tasks in the main window
6 - Clic on 'File/Start dump', choose a name for the ISO file, and wait

For an unknown game :
1 - Select your DVD drive in wxRipper
2 - Load your big hotswap DVD in the DVD drive
3 - Let the drive read the TOC, then stop it with 'Hotswap/Stop drive'
4 - Replace the hotswap DVD by a known Xbox DVD
5 - Clic on 'Hotswap/Find magic number' and wait until the software give you the magic number and add a list of tasks in the main window
6 - Replace the known game by the unknown one
7 - Here you can clic on 'Hotswap/Add game to database' to add your game to the known list
8 - Clic on 'File/Start dump', choose a name for the ISO file, and wait

You should have issues with old DVD drives. During all the testing, I found working drives and non working drives, the only advice I can give you is to try with a recent drive, and if you can, a DVD burner.

The original post in french is here :
http://gueux-forum.n...showtopic=92178

And you can download the software from here :
http://bouclier.free.fr/wxRipper.php

To finish I want to remember you that this procedure do NOT solve the mediatype/mediaflag issue in any way, so you won't be able to burn the raw dump on a DVD9 and play with it, except if you do a hotswap with the original on the Xbox DVD drive.

This hotswap procedure is explained here :
http://forums.xbox-s...howtopic=473693

And for the usual guys who say 'everything is useless if I can't play warez on my Xbox', the answer is to wait for a modchip or a firmware hack for the DVD drive, to make it report a false media type. This day I think you should be happy to be able to do a full rawx dump of your games ...

EDIT : you can open the ISO file with another software I made : wx360. With this, you can explore the ISO, extract files or even replace files in it wink.gif

It works with the raw dump ISO created with wxRipper, and the XDVDFS releases from Team Pi. It also should work with all Xbox1 ISO.

Gael360 you are a good programmer,
I've tried your wxRipper 1.0 with QUAKE 4 + Bonus DISC and it works fine (also find magic number) but NFSMW it tell me that it is not a game!!! blink.gif

I've also dumpet it fine, using the .LTF modded by me with the correct magic number but why it doesn't recognize my NFSMW PAL ITA???

Can I add some code to the wxRipper.db?

NEED_FOR_SPEED_MOST_WANTED_PAL
7A86E1C0F72BE57297B3F97093ABCF11
D95DFA51FADEA0B1329B7DA8D4F38FED
???????????????????????????????????????

Where you find this bytes?

Thanks

I think it's because NFSMW exists in french, italian, english, ...

I haven't got this game, but someone from gueux.be report me that the french version has files named blacklist_01_french_pal.wmv, blacklist_02_french_pal.wmv, ... in the folder 'Movies'

I had a look at the pi-nfsmw.360 file, and guess what ? these files are named blacklist_01_english_pal.wmv, blacklist_02_english_pal.wmv, ...

What about yours ? are they named blacklist_01_italian_pal.wmv ???

So the entry for NFSMW in the original wxRipper database is the french one, so the correct name for this entry should be NEED_FOR_SPEED_MOST_WANTED_FRENCH_PAL

What you can do now :

Do the 'Find magic number' using your Quake4 dvd. Wait for the drive to stop then put your italian NFSMW in the drive (by hotswap of course), and clic on 'add game to database'. Put 'NEED_FOR_SPEED_MOST_WANTED_ITALIAN_PAL' for the name, and start the dump (or just exit because now the software knows your version of NFSMW.

For your information, each game entry is made with the name of the game, a checksum of some data on layer0 (to recognize the game) and the checksum of some data on layer1 (to find the layer1 shift)

I think I'll put a updated version of wxRipper.db on my website, so if you can provide me your checksums for the italian NFSMW, it will be great !

It would be a great thing !
But because wxRipper need to know the game to find the shift between your hotswap DVD and the original Xbox360 games layout, you have to use a known game before using it on an unknown game.

So if everyone who have both games (known and unknown) is invited to feed the database wink.gif

Great!!!

I've put an updated database on my web site :
http://bouclier.free.fr/wxRipper.db

You just have to replace the existing file with this one in the same directory than wxRipper.exe

Yes this is normal, the entries do not contain the real data of the game but md5 hash, so no copyright issues ph34r.gif

Well I did a little research and I think, for the "silver" kiosk disk theme, you're offsets are off. Here is what I found.

icon.png = 0x0000171A
guidetile.png = 0x0000F000
Wallpaper1.png = 0x00010000
Wallpaper2.png = 0x000D2001
Wallpaper3.png = 0x0016E001
Wallpaper4.png = 0x00236001

P.S. Sorry to hijack you topic but I did'nt know how else to tell you.
