XBR-Flash for Linux v0.2 beta *update: v0.2.3*
Posted by XanTium | January 10 21:58 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
Trancy released a new version of XBR-Flash. With LFlash it was already possible to update your XBReboot on NAND-16mb consoles directly from your Xbox 360 booted into a Linux Distro like Gentoo (so no need to flash over LPT or USB again). Based on LFlash, XBR-Flash however will now allow you to flash on 256/512mb consoles as well and v0.2 comes with more additional features.


USE THIS SOFTWARE AT OWN RISK.

Two new features must be tested for 16/256/512MB Nands, so I need some more Beta-tester again ;)
- Bad Block Management (BBM)
- KV and Config Injection

usage: ./a backup.bin xbr_virgin.bin -i

backup.bin Backup from your current Nand
xbr.bin XBReboot file
-i [optional] Injecting KV and Config from the current Nand to XBR-File

If you want to use -i (Injecting KV and Config), KV and Config must be valid in the current Nand, because XBR-Flash read the current Nand out and inject this to the XBR-file

Thanks goes to tmbinc, Redline99 and other I forgot

History
v0.1 initial by tmbinc
v0.1.x used sources from Redline99 (Xell mods)
v0.1.1 modified by trancy
v0.2 Added Bad Block Management (BBM)
Added KV and Config Injection
v0.2.1 Hotfix for BBM
v0.2.2 2nd Hotfix for BBM
v0.2.3 Hotfix for KV and Config Injection


Note: This tool can of course only be only be used if you already run XBReboot/XeLL and want to update to a newer version (will be much faster, certainly on BB NANDs), the first time to perform the hack you will still have to do it over LPT or USB.

*Update* Trancy made a hotfix (v0.2.1) for the problem with bad blocks! But it needs testing again - so please report your findings!
*Update* 2nd hotfix for bad blocks (reserved area is on the end of 64 MB and not 256 or 512)
*Update* v0.2.3, fixed KV and Config Injection

Just a question; kinda looking at something here.


If this was to put compiled in a very very small linux barebone release of Gentoo, so small that It can be installed to a USB Stick (less than 1G if possible), or something similar to xboxhdm2 for Xbox1, where you can build an ISO with the necessary files in it and have it do it all automaticly. Just add xbr.bin (with kv.bin and config.bin injected of course).

Watch it do it all on it's own.

Be sweet.

Not sure if I made it clear.


Cheers, great app, just tested on Zephyr 16mb NAND, flashed XBR_3a

if you was to do that you wouldnt even need the kv.bin or rewconfig.bin

as you could get them on the xbox and aye you could do that np (then you can do almost any thing the really question is will you)

But what about if I'm going to only flash Xell after my original backup is made with nandpro where my kv and rawconfig are not present in NAND, but will be in my xbr.bin that I'll be flashing?

Will I what? I don't do much Linux, I only code in basic (lame) and script in XML.

What's I'm looking for is to make it a self flashing script to run within Gentoo, this is to avoid waiting for Gnome desktop to load, mount USB, build executable flasher, and manually flash it all. Ah, don't forget that not all of us have USB keyboard and mouse (I do, but because I had to buy them).

The idea is to run Xell, after that something that will automaticly flash xbr.bin so that It doesn't take that long from nandpro via lpt and writing to nand is more stable from xbrflash.c / lflash.c


Cheers.

I really don't use Linux at all but I have used lflash a few time to update boxes.

could someone be so kind as to put together a clean noob friendly tut on using this?

I just want to make sure I have all the steps clear and and if there is any difference between using this and lflash besides the final line of code for execution of the script.

Lol. I guess that's why my 512mb flash attempts from gentoo weren't working. Hooray for having a working Nand tonight. =)
