================================================================================Xboxhdm2.2 (USB Edition) - Final Release - Updated 24-10-2011
This is Xboxhdm2.2 with a bugfix on the bootloader. It reverts back to grub4dos. FreeDOS also fixed.
Xboxhdm2.2 is designed to help you rebuild your XBOX HDD using a USB flash drive. It can also help you un/lock your XBOX HDD.

Xboxhdm2.2 is primarily designed to boot from USB flash drives.
The tool is designed for advanced users as it assumes you are already familiar with xboxhdm
It may not work at all and may thrash your drive. Ensure you already have an eeprom.bin
and can recover with the original xboxhdm.
HDD start up times will be greatly extended if you have a locked HDD attached, although this is markedly reduced when un/locking using FreeDOS/ATAPWD or if IDE detection is turned off in your BIOS.Additional features over old version:
Boots from USB.
Integrated dual-booting allows for Linux & DOS tools to co-exist to get your HDD un/locked.
Any of the 4 IDE connections may be used now to connect Xbox HDD. CD-ROM drive not needed (if you can boot from USB).
No reboots between HDD rebuilds and locking.
Linux ISO building no longer required.Quick use/set-up:
Extract xboxhdm2.2 to the root of your USB flash drive.
Populate the /hdm/C folder with the M$ Dashboard files.
Populate the /hdm/E folder with any chosen files (games saves etc) that you require installed.
Place your "eeprom.bin" file in the eeprom folder located on the root of the flash drive if you intend to un/lock.
To install the multiboot, download grub4dos Installer (ver 1.1)
& follow the install instructions from Section 1.
That's it! Reboot using the USB drive and if all gone well, you should see the boot screen. Notes:
Xboxhdm2.2 was developed from XboxHDM2 (USB Edition)
& covers much of its features.
If you intend on using the stable Xboxhdm2.1
then here are some quick install instructions
Some help files located in a “help” folder on the root of the USB stick. This may assist with you advanced un/locking techniques & basic use of xboxhdm2.2.
To access FreeDOS/ATAPWD un/locking tools - select FreeDOS in the boot menu & press enter twice. Navigate to the FreeDOS folder using DOS commands (cd freedos).
This is a final personal build & is unsupported as the tool is no longer being developed. But it works
Have fun with it.
