Good Evening Everyone! I hope you all are doing well tonight. I was just wondering if someone could please give me some insight if I am on the right track for flashing a TS drive? I have certainly looked around on the forums, but with the different methods/firmwares, I think I am confusing things for myself. Basically this is what I am looking to do. I may be way off, so please forgive me if I am in the totally wrong direction.
Ok, so I downloaded, iPrep_101_v0.0.6.2 and installed and updated it. I am loading the iXtreme v1.4 8x firmware. (Is this even the best program / firmware to use?) and then, just to test it out and see what files it actually makes, I just sent the destination to my C: drive (though I know I need to use a floppy/USB when I actually do this).
In the readme, I saw this business:
"1. Load your floppy disk or connect your USB Flash Drive. (optional)
2. Run iPrep.
3. Detect your sata chipset, if required.
4. Open your Xtreme Firmware's .bin file.
6. Click "DO IT!".
7. Boot from your prepared drive or your NTFS cd.
8. Type "iDump xxxxxxx xxxxx" to backup your 360's original firmware and create you hacked firmware.
9. Type "iFlash xxxxxxx xxxxx" to flash the hacked firmware.
(Don't include the quotes, and replace x with your 360's Serial Number.)"
I don't even see the iDump, or iFlash commands in the directory it created.
When everything is created, and I boot off the USB key, what command should I even be running? Also, whenever I run the command, will it automatically pull my original firmware and patch it and write the new hacked firmware to the drive? (and ofcourse back it up?)
I really appreciate everyone's time and help. I just want to see if I am even on the right track, or if anyone can recommend another program that will make things easier or more efficient? Thank you very much and I hope you all have a good evening.
