Its origins

What does it do?
For softmodded Xboxes:
* If your Xbox will boot a rescue disc, no matter which softmod you have on there this disk will upgrade it to the latest MS Dash and the latest Krayzie or Kingroach softmod - your choice. And, apart from making a couple of choices to start with, and confirming a couple of intermediate questions, it's one-click - including removing the old softmod and populating the shadow C. Importantly, it preserves the content of your E drive, including gamesaves (apart from 007, MA and SC).
* While it's doing that it installs the latest UnleashX and EvolutionX dashboards and the XBMC shortcut.
* It installs Krayzie gamesaves on all Xboxes (Krayzie and Kingroach) to provide a useful back door.
* It has one-click fixes to all common softmod problems:
- turn shadow C on and off (with visual indication)
- turn virtual eeprom on and off (with visual indication)
- enable or disable 480p and VGA
* It can remove all copies of eeprom.bin, thus eliminating the eeprom mismatch issue that is a common cause of blank screens and other problems.
* It can replace and automatically repopulate a corrupt shadowc, again with only one click.
* It implements ldotsfan's lxhdm for softmod hard disk upgrades, in only three steps, including repopulating the new shadow C and launching XBPartitioner 1.1 for extended partition formatting, so you don't get data corruption on large drives.

For chipped / flashed Xboxes:
* It only has the latest BIOSes, and all have LBA48 for large disk support
* It has a disk rebuilding option that automatically launches XBPartitioner 1.1 for extended partition formatting, so you don't get data corruption on large drives
* It can flash all TSOP types, including Winbond, and automatically set up the dashboards to work with the new BIOS.
* After TSOP flashing it has one-click cleaning for the disk, removing the softmod and installing a clean C.
* If you back out of the TSOP flash it has an option to clean up the disk and reset it to its original state.
* It installs Krayzie gamesaves on flashed Xboxes to provide a useful back door, in case your chip fails.

For all Xboxes:
* It installs common applications (including XBMC) to E or F
* It has one-click dashboard switching, putting the dashboard in the right place depending on your mod type. If you have XBMC installed as an application you can also select it as a dashboard.
* It supports blind video mode switching. If you've accidentally set your Xbox to PAL and your TV is NTSC only so you can't see the screen (or vice-versa), you can restore it simply with a couple of button presses and a couple of reboots.
* It has simple HD video mode enabling options that bypass virtual eeprom and launch the appropriate tools
* It installs a complementary UnleashX menu and a toolset to allow you to switch dashboards and fix common softmod problems without needing the rescue disc.
* Where one-click operation is infeasible, step-by-step instructions are provided on-screen.
* It has on-screen instructions to help you.
* It also has lots of error checking to prevent you from messing up your Xbox as far as possible!

:Indeed this disc draws upon the best ideas from Slayer, CASH, AID and builds on the foundation of Frosty and my personal favorite a optimal implementation of lxhdm. There is even Gentoox parts inside.

Heimdall deserves rounds of beerchug.gif a fine piece of work arising from his expert understanding of all xbox Modding from softmod to tsop to chip to dash to bios

Not directly, because it looks for files on D:\

It wouldn't be too difficult to install it on E:\ then do a search and replace on config.xml to repoint all of the D:\ references to a location on E:\, but not E:\HeXEn\, because I think I've already used E:\HeXEn\

Trying to format a Samsung 1TB sata drive (with a sata adapter), and I'm asked for a password. Thought it might be the password mentioned in the first post Heimdall01, but it says incorrect password.

Nevermind, i tried this instead - *3.5.3. New Disk, NTSC Xbox Passcode=AYBX

I am very curious about that statement above. On a softmod xbox, does this mean you can swap any hard drive from an xbox to another xbox without a problem? Like in the sense of literally just removing the hard drive without any unlocking and then put it in an xbox with a different motherboard?

No, it means what it says. It eliminates the eeprom mismatch issue that is a common cause of blank screens and other problems - no mention of swapping disks or removing the need for disk unlocking and locking.

ahh I never had the mistmatch issue which is why I was not familiar with the statement and read it as being something else

I would be interested in this, haven't had a DVD drive for a while and have just upgraded my HDD to a Seagate 400gb, but now i need to change my bios from iND-5003.06 to iND-5003.67, got the winbond W49F020T so i know i need to use raincoat, jus not sure how.

Can't use the Eurasia disc or this one, if you could give me some pointers to get it going from HDD i wouldn't mind trying this out. Thanks Heimdall great work, keeping the scene alive
