XBOX 360 Firmware upgrade

Ξ December 20th, 2009 | → 0 Comments | ∇ Hacks |

I was commisioned with a task to upgrade a couple 360's. Needless to say one of them was brand spanking new. Still in the box to be exact. Well, the 83850c Lite-on drives don't like to have their firmware dumped. Reading through countless articles and posts i decided a solder method was the only way to go.

With permission, i dove in.

This is the board with the protective film removed. I used my leatherman and scraped it off with my knife.

Here are my soldered joints. Not bad for a first time on a super small board ;)

And a close up of the solders.

The switch to enable/disbale the ground.

All put back together and ready to dump :)

Use jungle flasher
1. Intro the drive
2. Read the firmware.
3. Make a dummy copy (right click)
4. Load dummy in source, let it auto-ixtreme it.
5. Repair drive (put all the cuts and solders back)
6. Intro it again.
7. Click "Write"
8. Enjoy

Defcon 16 this year was good stuff. Me an Thurm drove down on wednesdat night so we could get our tickets early. We met up with Jake and Bryce and stayed at a Holiday Inn, which had very nice beds.

The second night we were there, we ate out at ??? and they had some sour cream chicken, sooo nice. I will put the name of place in when i remember it, i paid cash, so i cant go back and look.

A couple of my fav talks:

1. BackTrack Foo- From bug to 0day
2. Shifting the Focus of WiFi Security: Beyond Cracking your neighbor's WEP key.

The back of the badge has a 2-D barcode, which i figured to say: . It also has a SD card slot, USB connector solder points, and a dip switch solder point. I got a usb connector, but i dissapeared on the way home :(
The badge:

A crowd Shot:

** My badge either appears to be toast, or my battery is dead. I went to show someone and it wouldn't turn on. Turns out the battery was in backwards?? So, when i find a new battery i test it out.

Ignition Autoconnect crap errors “wzccmd.exe”

Ξ June 3rd, 2008 | → 0 Comments | ∇ Hacks |

BYU-Idaho wireless requires the Ignition AutoConnect to be install to take care of the certificates in order to log on to their 802.1x wireless. In the process of using their setup program it crashes with wzccmd.exe. Google brought up like 3 results, all about spyware.

I gave up for a while. I use linux for everyday use so i didn't need to too badly. Linux (ubuntu 8.04) connects perfectly.

After plinking around with it today and sending hate mail to the help desk, i started looking around my system to find something that could possibly be conflicting. Long story short, i disabled the vmware network adapters in my network control panel. BAM! it worked.

Just disable your vmware adapters, install autoconnect, then re-enable them. Its working for me, so i am writing this post to help others who may have this same issue.

My wife got a pink razr, we tried to put new ringtones on it, but it seems we are “locked out”… riiiiight. Locked out my butt! After some digging i found out how…
OK, so u can charge your phone on the usb port? And u have mpt 4.21a installed? And the last step we need to do is enable multimedia studio so u can add ringtones.
ok. u need to download 2 programs.
1) MSU (motorola software updater) this will get your phone into the correct mode to edit the seem files.
2) P2Kseem - this is what we will use to change the seem files.
here is a link to where u can download them…
Just download them, dont install them yet.
k. plug in phone, make sure it is in as usb modem. then run and install MSU 1st. U will be prompted with a series of 3 or 4 drivers, choose automatic […]

Coming with my new M3 card is DSlinux. Very small and with a screen font of 3, which is quite interesting.
Ok, do the port to the DS doesn’t seem to bad, not super funtional, but not bad. The basic ARM processor doesn’t allow a lot to be compiled, such as kismet and aircrack. There is a ARM build for aircrack, and i will look into it.
Here is a shot of DSlinux and BitchX via SSH and the WIFI.
