Debian v5.0 Mini LiveCD - Free60
Posted by XanTium | January 13 16:30 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
LAN-S and tuxuser released a new Linux LiveCD for homebrew Xbox360s with build-in lflash & xbrflash:


Summary:
The Free60-Project proudly presents a minimal Linux Debian 5.0 LiveCD with inbuilt NAND-Flash/Dump/Check utilities. It also includes an option to install Debian-Etch out of the net to your HDD. Have fun :)

Note:
For some reason nandcheck reports ECC errors that are not real.
Transfer the dumped image to your PC and check it there, it will be fine.

Next Release:
* FatX support
* Kernel with Sound-Support


Official Site: By LAN-S and tuxuser at free60.org (Thx to Icekiller for the news)

Since this has built in NAND flash/dump utilities, if you have a King Kong exploitable 360 could you skip wiring JTAG entirely and just use this to flash?

Yeah you shouldnt have to wire up a flasher, but you still need to jtag if you want to use xbr.

Just to clarify:
1. You solder JTAG connections, so you are able to run unsigned code.
2. You skip entirely LPT-flasher soldering, because you don't need it anymore.
3. You put the LiveCD to your 360 and using built-in tools you dump NAND (to USB drive?)
4. You take your NAND dump to PC and after making sure it's good (Degraded, several dumps comparision, etc.) you prepare XBR image.
5. Using LiveCD once again, you flash XBR to your 360.

Did I take it right?

If I did, it would be awesome! I just ordered brand new Jasper with MFR date 05.2009 to replace my XBRed Xenon for which I did a special RJ-45 port just to flash newer versions of XBR. I was about to do the same to Jasper, but if I could skip chasis cutting, doing more soldering (and of course wasting much more time), it would be just GREAT!

No dude, you'll need to at least flash Xell first in order to boot linux.


This is how I flashed my last xbox using Gentoo; same method can be used here and should load faster:

-JTAG wire Xbox360
-Solder flasher (I use LPT)

Now in NandPro (I've only done this with 16mb boards, no big blocks yet)

nandpro lpt: -r16 front0.bin 0 50
nandpro lpt: -r16 front1.bin 0 50

This will dump the first 50 blocks o the Nand, and it's where Xell will reside in.

Now compare them with HexWorkshop and if the match, all good.

Now take a xbr.bin just or testing purposes (you'll delete this file after verifying your CB!!!

nandpro xbr.bin: -w16 front0.bin 0 50

After, open this xbr.bin with 360NandDump Tool 0.91 to check your motherboard version, CB, etc.

Once you see that all checks out, delete and destroy this xbr.bin!!! it's not flashable and you'll fuck up so bad you'll cry for the longest time ever.

Now with nandpro, you'll extract your keyvault from front0.bin

nandpro front0.bin: -r16 rawkv.bin 1 1

Once you have this, we will compile a working XBR for your motherboard version and flash Xell as well.

nandpro xbr.bin: -w16 rawkv.bin 1 1
nandpro lpt: -w16 xell.bin 0

All this will be done in like... 10 minutes tops.

How, run Xell, run Linux Disc (I used Gentoo for this) Following the lflash guide.

once you are at the "./a.out backupnand.bin xbr.bin

your 360 will now be working with XBR flashed and all good.

After, take that backupnand.bin and inject your front0.bin like this with nandpro

nandpro backupnand.bin: -w16 front0.bin 0 50

This will make your "untouched" backup of your NAND if you ever need to flash original again.


The rest is magical, like this I don't have to wait 36 minutes for every read and write using LPT and NandPro.


I Hope you like this tutorial. Cheers

I'll come back when the errors are fixed.

What's the point if you have to back to your PC for checking?

XBRFlash eliminated the need for using your PC, but this just adds it back.

I think they meant: ECC error reports are not true, double check on your PC if you don't believe us.

how would I access my xbr.bin other than ftp to pc?

usb:\xbr.bin on one port and run


mount -t vfat -0 uid=debian,gid=root /dev/sda1 /home/debian/root/flash

than what now? run?

xbrflash -d /mount/dev/sda1/backup.bin -f /mount/dev/sda1/xbr.bin



????????????????


I don't find any tutorials for using this or at least a "here are the basics"


help anyone?

To clear up any confusion, to boot this CD you need a console that already has XeLL flashed on it (XBR, cygnos2 chip) and JTAG wiring installed _OR_ a console that can run the King Kong exploit.

For the king kong exploit, you'd boot the CD how you normally boot Linux Live CDs with that exploit. I don't have one so don't know how specifically. Once you've booted the Live CD and flashed the nand with XBR, THEN you install the JTAG wiring. Now you can run unsigned code from the dashboard/all the benefits of XBR, etc.
