H3Unlock, A tool to remove security checks from your Halo 3 & Halo 3 ODST executables.
Halo 3 Hacked Executables
By Xenon.7(DeToX) & Anthony
DO NOT CHEAT. DO NOT UTILIZE THIS ON XBOX LIVE, OR ANY SERVICE THAT DOES NOT ALLOW MODIFICATIONS OF GAMES/CONTENT.
Now that that's said..
This bundle of hacked halo 3 executables will allow you to run your modified .map files in Halo 3 and Halo 3 ODST, which was not possible prior to XBReboot because Bungie had implemented RSA checks. This executable removes those checks.
NOTICE!!: These executables have already been patched with updates.. so this package will contain Halo 3 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, and Halo 3 ODST. So if you have an update for Halo 3/ODST, you might want to clear your cache (Tutorial: http://news.teamxbox.com/xbox/11131/Xbox-3...Code-Revealed/)
, so that the update does not try reapplying ontop of the already patched executable, or it does not interfere with Halo 3 1.0, and etc.
This tool will auto detect if the XEX you opened is not a clean one, and will not proceed if it isn't.----------------------------------------------
Items & Descriptions
Halo 3 1.0 Hacked - Ability to mod .map file.
Halo 3 1.1 Hacked - Ability to mod .map file.
Halo 3 1.2 Hacked - Ability to mod .map file.
Halo 3 1.2 Ultimate - Ability to mod .map files, All armor is always unlocked(properly), alot more security removed from .map files, which, at times, would give you a dirty disc error, because the engine is really picky. Removed signatures on .blf images(mainmenu preview images), .mapinfo files(files that add .maps to your mainmenu). Alot more aswell.
Halo 3 ODST Hacked - Ability to mod .map files. I believe I also removed a bit more security here than that that made the engine less strict about certain header values that are to be calculated.
Note: If you have a copy of the Halo 3 Multiplayer Only disc that was bundled from Halo 3 ODST, you can take a hacked Halo 3 1.2 XEX, and replace it with that one, and the game will function the exact same, only security will be removed.
So here's an example of a mod. This was a quick one, but no research was done back then, so I had to start pretty small I suppose. This is the first decent mod made that was shown, some of you may recognize it as it got some publicity because Bungie had commented..
And here's just another for the hell of it.
So these are two fine examples of just some small
things you can do, because trust me, you can do a lot more than just this. I'll be sure to jump on bitmap injection soon for you guys when I have some time.========================================
HOW TO APPLY PATCHES TO THE EXECUTABLE
-Put xorloser's xextool.exe in the same folder as this application or else it will not function.
-Open H3Unlock.exe, open up a clean XEX from Halo 3 ODST or Halo 3, and select which patch you'd like to apply.
It's also been reported you should use xextool for all 4 .dll's:
