So far I've dumped the Falcons nand over 7 times but each and every dump fails to open in either Degraded v1.1 or 360 Flash Tool. While dumping I receive no errors and everything appears to go as it should. I have a Xenon 360 which I've also dumped several times using exactly the same set up and I've encountered no problems whatsoever. I've tried adding resistors, shortening the cable between Xbox and PC but the resulting Falcon nand.bin still refuses to open in Degraded or Flash Tool.
I've also followed tmbinc's info on how to check CB version using a hex editor. I use Hex Workshop to open the Falcon's nand.bin and I see "2004-2009 Microsoft Corporation" in the top right corner so it looks to have at least partially dumped the nand correctly. I select to go to offset 0x8202 (as per tmbinc's instructions) but I'm not too sure what I'm supposed to be looking at. I'm not too familiar with using hex editors so I'm a little lost at this point. I can see the letters "CB" writted halfway down the right of the screen but see nothing that might suggest version. I could post a screenshot if that helps anyone work this out.
So in brief, I appear to have no problems dumping the Falcon's nand. I am however unable to open the .bin files in either Degraded or Flash Tool to decipher CB version. I'm not sure how to use a hex editor to do this. Basically I just want to know if I should keep this 360 or not. If it can't be used for future homebrew then I need to sell it.
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. I've wasted several hours on it already and I have a bad feeling it's going to end up being a non exploitable box .
