I have an unmodified Xbox which I'll be soft-modding in due course. But before that, I want to create an image file of its hard disk, so I can recover it if/when I screw up somehow.
So I need to find out the hard disk ATA password. Then I'll connect the drive up to my PC and image it after unlocking.
Is there any save-game exploit which just shows the HDD password on screen, or the HDD key and drive product/serial so I can use some PC-based tool to calculate the password? As I understand it, the Krayzie exploit/mod (and maybe most others?) can backup the EEPROM data to the Xbox's hard disk. But I'd prefer to be able to image the HDD before making any changes to it.
