Unlocking HDD for Xbox

Postby Mustard » Sun Jun 17, 2018 11:00 pm

Hello Everyone,
So as the title says, I need some help unlocking my XBs HDD. After doing a little research on the world wide web lol... I was not finding what I was looking to try to do. Basically the closest thing I could find was this comment from Rocky5 in a diferent thread.

"Example: Cloned a new HDD to Xbox1 Xbox1 died and I never backed up my eeprom (as I'm a tit) Xbox2 has a 10GB hdd and I want to use my 300GB hdd from Xbox1 Xbox2 cannot use Xbox1 hdd as the eeprom key is different. But we can unlock Xbox1 hdd via chimp using the master key & relock it to Xbox2s eeprom. Now I can use my 300GB hdd in Xbox2 :D"

Sadly, like most threads no one finishes up the post with what the final remedy/ failure was. Now I would love to do this rather than reformatting the HDD and start with the days of FTPing, but I'm having some issues with Chimp261812. When I go to the Unlock Slave Drive option, the drive doesn't unlock.
When I softmod an XB I always backup the eeprom using the Sid5.
My HDD is a WD 500GB.

Any help would be great thanks in advance!

Wait you have the eeprom.bin from the other Xbox?

If you have your eeprom.bin backup, upload it to the root of the Y drive. Then use the unlock slave drive option using the file Y:\eeprom.bin not the motherboard. As this Xbox2 cannot unlock Xbox1's HDD without its HDDKey, this value is stored in the eeprom.bin backup from Xbox1.

If you don't have the eeprom.bin backup, you'll need to use an eeprom reader or raspberry pi to obtain the contents of Xbox1's configuration EEPROM (8-pin chip 256bytes of data).

Yes, I should have the eeprom backed up on the HDD, but Idk how to unlock it with the Chimp. I tried every option in the slave drive options of the chimp program. Nothing would unlock the HDD.

Do what I did. Get an EEPROM reader to extract the EEPROM from themotherboard, and use XboxHDM to unlock the drive and to lock another drive. Luckily, you can use a USB HDD adapter with XboxHDM to make the process easier with a modern PC without IDE.

Ok. Thanks XC-3730C, I'll definitely get the adapter and give that a try.
I'll report back when I give it a try.
