    >> Redline99 released an XDK (XEX) flasher to overwrite your NAND (like for an XBReboot update) directly from your homebrew Xbox 360!
    From the readme/nfo:
    Official Site: n/a, by Redline99
    Download: n/a (built with XDK)

    EclipseModz on Se7enSins has wrote a tutorial on this. Big up to the original author.



    Flash 360 is a new flashing program that boots from the 360 Dashboard. It makes updating it 100x easier and faster! Full NAND dumps and flashes in around 30 seconds!

    What you will need:
    Xbox 360 with XBR installed
    USB Drive with Flash360 files in root.
    XeXLoader


    1) Download Flash 360 from Xbins (Link)

    Open Xbins.exe and download Flash360 from the XBOX360/dashboards/Flash360 folder

    3) Put XBR image with or without KV and Config injected. It doesn't matter. Name the File updflash.bin

    4) Connect USB drive to 360 and turn the 360 on.

    5) Go into your games and start XEXLoader

    6) In XEXLoader launch the Flash360.xex

    7) Once Flash360 has loaded up. We are going to make a backup of your NAND before we flash to it. So hit the X Button.

    [​IMG]

    8) Hit A Button to Save entire NAND to file.

    9) Once done you will see this. Then press any button to continue.

    10) Press back to return to main menu. Now push A Button to Write updflash.bin to NAND.

    [​IMG]

    11) If you did not inject your KV and config then you will push Button A.
    If you injected your KV and config then you will push Button B.

    [​IMG]

    12) It will say comparing KV's then say. Press A button to begin. So Press A.

    [​IMG]

    13) You will then see the progress.

    15)Press back button to go to main menu

    http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r167/XxEclispedMoonxX/FLASH360XBR/IMG_0101.jpg

    16)Press BACK Button to SHUTDOWN. *DO NOT RETURN TO DASHBOARD!*

    17) You are done. Turn the 360 back on and enjoy your updated XBR![/QUOTE]

    I just re-flashed 4 xenon consoles that had xbr_1 to xbr_3 and added xellous at the same time last night. Didn't have to take the systems apart, or use lpt cable or a linux cd and it took no time at all this is awesome!

    Re-flashing without LPT cables and 30 minute read/writes?!?!

    I just had an orgasm. Wait........... just had another.

    So cool.

    Just one more reason that somebody needs to create a temporary JTAG tool.

    In the satellite receiver NAND flashing days this was done by using "pogo" pins, which are spring-loaded pins that are attached to wire/LPT. The pins are arranged to make contact with the proper points on the motherboard and clip into place when you need to read/write the NAND. When you are finished, you simply unclip the pins and you can re-use your NAND reader for another box; no soldering required.

    Here is a link to pogo pins on eBay: http://cgi.ebay.com/Spring-Loaded-P...emQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item3ca75c2f95

    Who's up to the task of designing this for the 360? :)

    pretty sure that the jtag connections have to stay in place though on 360s. otherwise it would be a great idea.

    EDIT : Ignore, just realised after Wabash's post that it does need to be permanent for the JTAG bit, only the FTP cable can be removed

    EDIT 2: Sorry, though I pressed Edit not Reply

    Forgive me, I haven't actually done the homebrew hack to a 360 yet, but I plan to very soon (just got a compatible Xbox)... but can you leave the JTAG portion of the hack where you are only joining connections on the motherboard and remove the other portion of the hack, the NAND reader/writer? If that were the case, we could still use a pogo pin flasher and just solder the JTAG portion of the hack itself. That would still be a lot less soldering.

    That's correct.
    I could be wrong but don't think that "commercially" a group would release a pogo setup for sale since there might not really be many exploitable 360's out there and fewer people that would spend money on it only to do their one system.
    If you're actually doing multiple systems or uncrippling banned systems then it could be useful but I actually like soldering.
    I bet that we will see some useful stuff that is user made though.

    I don't mind soldering... I just don't like soldering on $200 pieces of equipment any more than I have to :)
