Chapter 11: Virtual Eeprom Patching

This chapter will teach you how to set up your Eeprom after the install of SID 5 if you want that extra step in the security of a softmod.

“X-Man9” from official developer of the nkpatcher systems after Rmenhal, has stated that some games cannot keep Xbox Live! Data in HDD if your Xbox HDD is nulled, we haven’t had any issues, but he has stated that games like “Ghost Recon” will automatically delete your Xbox Live! Maps from your HDD if your HDD serial is not valid.

We will not be held responsible for data loss, do this at your own risk.

Step 1: Getting to access true files on your Xbox C drive.

First you must understand how FTP works, this tutorial will not teach you how to FTP.

First you must have an nkpatcher *.xbe loaded that will not mount the virtual, this *.xbe can easily be the one you booted SID 5 and it’s how this tutorial will show it to you.

  • Cold boot game of Choice or use a file manager to navigate to save.
  • If you boot SID 5 from game of exploit, simply fix your Network Settings to a proper way to access your Xbox from FTP. If your going to use a file manager, the file to be executed is NOT menu.xbe, you’ll execute “install.xbe”, this file is nkpatcher 11-01 with no virtual mounts. Directory for manual boot is: E:\UDATA\21585554\000000000000\
  • You’ll get the Eeprom.bin found in C:\SID5\ from your real partition, to know if it’s your real partition, you should be able to see the following files (not all files or folders are mentioned here.

\SID5                                 <- This is where the files are located
\Xbox Book.xtf

Step 2: Making Changes on the Eeprom.bin dump

First you’ll open up LiveInfo.exe. (This tutorial should have it for you, if it doesn’t, please download in either Xbins, Xbox-Hq downloads, or any other place that hosts these files for you.

This is how live info will open up to be like.

This is usually how you’ll see it when it opens up. Now the Next pictures will go in order as you must follow the tutorial, if you already familiar with Live Info, just go to the last picture to see what needs to be done.

Open the File by choosing “Load EEPROM”

This picture will show you what need modification and WHAT NOT to modify.

MAC address is very important, as well as the hash of the Eeprom to be a valid file, this is the reason why we are doing this manually, since most of the PAL users can’t get a good Eeprom patch by previous versions.

This is what’s to be modified. You don’t have to make them all Zeros, it can be anything randomly, just make sure you don’t randomly make it correct.

After all this is done, simply use the “Save as .BIN” and either overwrite the old Eeprom.bin or name it differently, just make sure you have a proper backup of the Eeprom your self, and not the modified, if you try to make new HDD with this modified Eeprom you’ll never get it to work, since it’s only going to give you invalid HDD keys, and your HDD will result in error 06 on your Xbox.

Make sure that you FTP the modified file named Eeprom.bin to overwrite the old file in C:\SID5\, after you have completed this, simply turn off Xbox, and power back on, most apps/dashes including ConfigMagic will display your unlock key, but when it’s time to call the Eeprom to unlock is when it will fail. To see if your changes are in fact active, please use ConfigMagic, and see what you get onscreen, UnleashX and other dashes will always display the correct unlock key in the settings or info screen.
