I bit the bullet and set up ubuntu 10.10 on my laptop dual-booting it, and backtrack 4, just to test this stuff further and even with a clean install of ubuntu maverick, I get the same error as before.
So I guess maybe this doesn't work for IDE HD's? or I am missing something. Prerequisites? Kernel modules?
Just to confirm, I used the guide you posted in this thread but since I already had a fully working xbox HD, I skipped right to steps 12 and 13. Is this ok? I get the errors noted above when I try those 2 commands.
Something else I noticed. I can't copy and paste the commands directly or I get "permission denied", even after cd'ing to the hdm2.3 dir and sudo su'ing. I have to type them this way:
hdparm --security-eeprom-lock eeprom.bin /dev/sdb (sdb is my drive)
note that I had to leave out the "./" at the beginning.This post has been edited by xboxmods2977: May 13 2011, 03:17 PM
