It seems that a lot people are trying to swap benq drives with hitachis but after an unsuccessful key patching,the drive is not recognized as hitachi anymore so that drives look useless.The problem is even though you can put hitachis under modeB,Maximus Firmware Toolbox 4.0 doesn't recognize the drive as hitachi since it was already spoofed as Benq.In this case,you may think that the hitachi drive can't be used anymore.It's so easy to respoof/unspoof the hitachi drive even if it's spoofed as Pioneer drive!!!
The purpose of this tutorial is for people who buy new Xbox 360 with benq drives,managed to get the firmware and want to use a spoofed hitachi drives to play backup games.As it seems a lot of people can't find a good solution,i wanted to make this tutorial.
If,somehow,you fail what i'm trying to show here,i take no responsibility since this method has been used many times with 100% success.You need to do exactly what it's shown here to avoid any error.Ok here we go:
1-First,you need to download C4EVA_XTRM-HITACHI_v2_4_Stealth.rar and extract it somewhere.Copy the X-LG folder into C: drive. When you navigate into X-LG folder,you will see lots of EXE files.We only need to commands here --Memdump.exe and 47flash.exe(in case you have a v46 or v59 hitachi,you will use 46flash.exe or 59flash.exe respectively)
2- Flash the hitachi drive with this firmware(you can try iextreme firmware pack but i haven't used that pack for this method)
3-After flash is succesful,see if the drive ejects.Don't put the sata cable back.Now we use memdump command to dump the current firmware.For this,you need to be in the X-LG folder.For those who don't know how to go into X-LG folder,Start>Run>cmd and look at the next picture:
4-Now it's time to use memdump command:
memdump X 12200 8 8000 myfranco.bin (where X is your drive letter)
You will have myfranco.bin in the X-LG folder.Take this binary file ,open the Maximus Firmware Toolbox 4.0.
First patch the benq key,spoof the drive as BENQ and ENCRYPT the firmware.DO NEVER PROCESS BEFORE ENCRYPTING!!!! you brick your drive without any doubt.Be sure that latest Benq drive is not supported by Maximus Firmware Toolbox 4.0.Wait for updated revision if you have the latest Benq 64930C.
5-You have myfranco-e.bin (which is key patched,spoofed as benq and ENCRYPTED) .Put it into X-LG folder.
6-This time we use two commands to spoof the firmware:
47flash X 9003d000 1000 myfranco-e.bin (where X is your drive letter) hit enter
47flash X 9003e000 1000 myfranco-e.bin (where X is your drive letter) hit enter
7-Now ,we patch the key.For patching the key ,again in X-LG folder,we use:
code 47flash X 90004000 1000 myfranco-e.bin /code
Your drive is spoofed this way.If,one day,you want to unspoof/flash the drive,just use myfranco.bin.Encrypt it with Maximus Firmware Toolbox and write the same sectors(as quoted 47flash command).You don't need to memdump again since we already have a memdumped firmware.
I hope this helps people.If you want me to add some information,simply post to this topic.
