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
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.
Add support for PIRS
Fixed Backup Xell
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
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.
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
