    Greetings

    So I bought a wasabi 360 ultra and I need to get the key from my xbox drive, what do I need to get it from the drive?

    And could anyone possibly direct me to a tutorial script or video which shows how it is done from hooking up the drive to pc to extracting the key.

    Many thanks .

    The Wasabi has auto DVD key extraction.
    I think it's just a matter of plugging it all in and then boot it.
    This should clarify it a bit



    edit: Just found out that DVD key extraction for Phat drives is under development.
    So you'll have to wait for that or you'll have ot get a X360 USB Pro v2 and a Probe 3.
    Then download Jungleflasher to extract the keys.

    Jungleflasher comes with a manual so it shouldn't be a problem.

    Or you can send it to me and let me extract the DVD keys for you.

    I needed those extra tools to extract keys from that drive when I had mine done, on the upside it is a one off process so you wont need to ever do it again once you have the keys.

    its a bit complicated if you do not have a tool. i have a ck3 probe that just need a simple mod done. there are plenty of guides out there.

    this is what killed me when i was doing it. when power cycling the drive, you DO NOT cut the full power from it, only the WIRE has to lose power. i kept turning all the power off and it kept failing I was freaking out!

    this is the basics:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    feel free to PM me if you have any other questions. I doubt you will even be back since you are a one poster. and this site is not even the best for xbox hacking!

    Thanks for the help :)

    I'm going to get X360 USB Pro v2 as it says it can get the key from any drive, DinohScene do I really need the probe as well?

    I notice that wasabi comes with a probe , can this be used?

    I must say although the concept of wasabi is brilliant in reality setting it up is turning out to be a pain in the backside and expensive too.

    Thanks again :)

    It might be cheaper sending it so me (I believe it's less then 10 quid shipping and 10 quid of getting it back)
    But if you want to do it yourself then yep a Probe 3 is needed for DVD key extraction along with the X360 USBPro V2 (or v1 + CK3i)

    I honestly have no idea if you can use it.


    Lol yep that's why I usually recommend Xkey's

    Welcomes~

    xkey is just as complicated i would imagine. unless wasabi did something crazy about the installation.

    you still need the key for xkey.

    @xxThe_Dice_manxx dude, did you completely skip my post. its not hard to make a PMT probe. you need your xbox dvd power cable (you just cut one, maybe two wires if you want the power and ground from it) and a pin, can be a damn sewing needle or even a bread tie without the paper on it. plug it in the pc via sata and good to go. it will take an hour at most for a newb. just read up first.

    of course if your sata chipset doesn't work it will suck balls. most chipsets work though.

    buy extra hardware if you want, but its not really worth it.

    Yes.
    If you patch EVERY backup with ABGX and burn them on Verbatim DVD's with 2.4x speed then you should be safe.
    Don't cheat, don't draw attention and NEVER PLAY PRERELEASE GAMES!

    There is always a chance of getting banned but laying low by not cheating, not modding savegames, not blurting out you pirate on XBL and not playing games before the release should keep you nonbanned ;]

    You can fork out more and get the USB pro v2.
    It's a X360 USB and a CK3i in one.
    It might be a bit cheaper then the CK3i and the X360 seperate but I'm not sure.
    And yes you need a Probe to extract the key.

    Don't use the 360 to power the drive while flashing. Each time the console is powered on without the DVD SATA plugged in, the console will log an error. This could show up on live as a red flag and put your console under scrutiny.

    Wasabi 360 FAT does come with a Probe , but in order to operate with JF you will also need a compatible SATA chip in your motherboard ( or X360USB Pro for best results ) . Check your motherboard's SATA chip , if it works you could try it alone , but if not there's no point in investing in X360USB Pro
    Find a local modder who can extract the keys for you .
    Now , about Wasabi , i had a FAT one and did not operate very well , stopped working after only one day , i hope it doesn't happen the same to you , i read reports that the FAT ones are not really reliable
