XBReboot v0.05 8955_1 for Zephyr, Falcon and Jasper-16 is out!


228w ago - As a follow-up to the previous release comes XBReboot v0.05 8955_1 for Zephyr, Falcon and Jasper-16 today.

They are all available with the latest 8955_1 patch revision now, so each 16mb motherboard can now run XBR v0.05 8955_1!

Only support for Jasper 256/512mb motherboards is still missing now. Don't forget to inject your own KeyVault and Config before flashing.

Download: XBR Zephyr 8955_1 / XBR Falcon 8955_1 / XBR Jasper 16 8955_1 / 360 Flash Tool v0.90 / FindSecData v0.61

XBReboot Block Layout:

Ox00 - 0x2F 4548 boot FW
0x30 - 0x3F Backup Xell
0x40 - 0x4F XBRfw.bin Rebooter core
0x50 - 0xBF Patch.bin Kernel and patches
0xC0 - 0x?? Flash file system

Version: XBRfw 0.5beta Initial
The fw version need not change for any given Patch.bin

Patch.bin is what needs to change for any new patch
The following are Patch.bin versions

8955_0: Initial
Don't need xextool:
automatically detect correct key for dev or retail xex.
Drag and drop any xex to cdr.
No specific secdata.bin or crl.bin requirements.

8955_1:
Add support for PIRS
Fixed Backup Xell

HowTo:

1) Extract KV and Config blocks from orig.bin

nandpro orig.bin: -r16 rawkv.bin 1 1
nandpro orig.bin: -r16 rawconfig.bin 3de 2

2) Inject those blocks into XBR.bin

nandpro XBR.bin: -w16 rawkv.bin 1 1
nandpro XBR.bin: -w16 rawconfig.bin 3de 2

3) Flash result

nandpro lpt: -w16 XBR.bin

Notes:

There is no need to unpack and repack pirs files!
This is a limitation of freeboot. Not XBR.
Aside from that major difference, all functionality is the same.

Individual sections can be updated or extracted seperately using nandpro.

The image can be made to work for all 16M consoles.

The standard method of using build.py can be used to change the 4548 boot FW portion of the flash to the console type.

Generally:

Create the image as described above.
The command to rebuild it might look like this:

build.py XBR.bin CB CD update.bin xell-1f.bin XBRfw.bin smcp.bin

Then the .ecc file result from build.py would be "flashed" back into the XBR

nandpro XBR.bin: -w16 image_00000000.ecc

i personally prefer xbr over freeboot as its quicker and more stable.

this latest XBR is a godsend, things just work much better than past versions, and because of the extra stability + now autopatching of things such as title updates it trumps freeboot, the only thing i really noticed was that the console takes a second or 2 longer to boot, and its not totally bulletproof yet either, i had one slight glitch earlier which resulted in this:
it takes longer to boot as its using the freeboot patch system to reboot the console.

your graphical errors are a precursor to a RROD. its not xbr. i played AC2 all day yesterday on it.

Here is an XBReboot v0.05 8955_3 for Jasper 256/512mb update:
A version of XBReboot with the latest patches which solves the freezing/lagging issues and removes the need to patch the media-flag in XEX files has now been released for Big Block (256/512mb) Jasper motherboards..

XBReboot is an image you can flash on your onboard NAND that will allow you to 'reboot' a JTAG-exploitable (pre mid-June 2009 MFR date AND pre-8xxx kernel) 360 in a patched 8955 kernel which makes homebrew XDK (unsigned XEXs etc) possible.

XBReboot for Jasper motherboards with CB 6723 and either 256mbit or 512mbit NAND flash. This will reboot into a patched 8955 kernel. However, this one can be flashed directly in your onboard NAND flash, no need for a 2-nand solution.

Features:

- Harddisk authentication disabled. The Xbox 360 will now accept any SATA harddisk.
- removed XEX signature checks
- removed LIVE/PIRS signature checks - extendable patch system.
- Fixed freezing/lagging issues and removes the need to patch XEX files (media check etc).

Some more XBReboot v0.05 8955_3b Zephyr and 8955_3a Jasper16 updates!
Another bug-fix version of XBReboot v0.05 8955_3 has been released for Zephyr motherboards fixing some issues with the 3a release. 3b is now confirmed working right on Zephyr!

*Update* Geremia also released a new version for Jasper16 motherboards (8955_3a) to fix support for the 'newer' Jasper (with new southbridge, flashconfig=00023010) SMC.

This is ONLY for the Zephyr and new-SB-Jasper16mb motherboards, for other motherboard versions you can just use the previous releases (8955_3a for Falcon and 8955_3 for Xenon).
