How To Unlock An 160gig Hdd That I Already Locked
Posted 04 October 2012 - 04:37 PM
When I'm in xboxhdm with my hdd connected I choose option 3 to lock/unlock drive then I write unlocked -a, and everythings looks fine but it never ask me if I want to unlock the drive, it only shows me my hdd password and information about the lock (it shows me that its locked).
So could someone help me to unlock my drive? thanks

then when you get to a black screen type.
then when you get to a new window. find your locked drive and say dissable password with master password
then tell it to remove password.
again use XBOXSCENE to remove password..
error 13 is because you did not have dash files correctly installed.
you may still be able to boot a recovery disk like HEXEN "heimdalls xbox engineering disk"
or if not you may still be able to run a xbox disk like halo 2 and tell it to log on to xbox live so it updates the dash so it boots.
and if your lucky you may be able to boot splinter cell and have game save exploits on the drive so you can either boot a recovery disk. or install a minimal softmod.
so you may want to try that before you unloick the drive
oh and the drive may be unlocked already.
it wont show a change of state from locked to unlocked untill you reboot. but the drive state could be changed.

but for heimdalls xbox engineering disk, do I put the disk on the xbox or I have to run it on a PC.
I'll try your solutions and I'll tell the results.

If it's not XBOXSCENE or TEAMASSEMBLY, or you don't have it written down or have a copy of the EEPROM, you're pretty much stuck. ATA security mode is designed to be really, really difficult to defeat.
Do you have copy of the EEPROM?

stock xbox drives can be unlocked without knowing any of the passwords even if you dont have the eeprom or mother board. "i posted how some where in hardware forum"
any way try to just unlock the hard disk with XBOXSCENE as the password, you can even try doing it with the normal unlocking tools and doing
unlockhd -p XBOXSCENE
having said that i will again state.. that it will still say the drive is locked. but just look out for
Commeand sucsessfull. "or something along those lines" thats the only thing you need to see. any subsiquent drive state messages are just being displayed from memory as it were, and not the actual drive state now.

The problem is that I waited like 20 minutes and no change on the screen, it keeps telling me to "press any key to abort the operation". What's wrong? thanks for the help.

Here are the files I put in the C:\ folder of xboxhdm:
and in my E:\ folder (I think most folders are from XBMC):
I would like to know if I'm missing a folder or file because I don't want to get another error 13 or whatever.

you must be using a really old tutorial..
use a ndure 1.1.1 based softmod..
or auto builder.
your file config there looks prety old to me.

unlockhd -p XBOXSCENE
I could be wrong, I'm getting confused with what I did with xboxhdm2X and chimp2618 but cross-referencing this thread and this this thread, suggests unlockhd uses the hex representation for the -p option, hence
for XBOXSCENE i t will be
unlockhd -p 58424F585343454E4500
for TEAMASSEMBLY, it will be
unlockhd -p 5445414D414353454D424C59
This should be true for xboxhdm 1.9. Can somebody confirm?
EDIT: Confirmed, do a google for "how to unlock MMCS" and you will find posts at a mitsubishi automobile forum where those folks use unlockhd with a hex password

thats why i 1st recommended atapwd not sure why they say they cant unlock it though.
i do notice they are missing some stock dash folders in the setup. but given its sid based i just recoomended using ndure 1.1.1 or auto builder.
