    so I have a banned+modded (just dvd drive, no jtag) 360 and a regular unbanned system

    say if I put my profile on the banned 360 and loaded it (which would now show up as corrupted if you tried to load it on an unbanned 360)
    could I use something like to this retrieve the account off the hdd and put it on a different hdd? http://www.dinodirect.com/XBOX-360-Hard-Dr...-Cable-Kit.html

    is there a program you could use when you hook it up?

    i was able to uncorrupt my profile and game saves using the hdd transfer cable and a couple different programs.

    there are some options for accessing the hdd, and i can't remember if the datel or other program worked for me. i'm leaning towards datel. both options are pretty terrible, though.

    i then had to go into each folder, and another program corrected the hex code that corrupts the data.

    and a third program to re-sign all the files. then, it all got copied back to the hdd.

    it was a pain (three profiles, and a TON of saves), it was slow, but it was worth it.

    i wish i could help more. but that computer died a few months ago. i know for a fact that a certain warez site specific to the 360 has a guide, which i used.

    If you have some smaller torx screwdrivers you can pull the drive apart and wire it up to your PC (it is just a laptop sata drive which should rock the same connectors). Xplorer360 (make sure you get a version compatible with your drive size- the 250 gig edition has a habit of messing with non 250 gig drives) takes care of the accessing and writing side of things. Equally you can cannibalise one of those MS hard drive transfer tools if you have one.
    Option 2 is jump to a USB compatible dashboard, copy things there and grab it all with XTAF.

    Live and Save files are CON files. Funnily enough there is a CON uncorrupter program (the basic process is easy enough but since sweenish did his we have a batch program or two to do it all- Consaver being a prominent one http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?act...=0#entry4686278 ). MS stopped the corrupting of profiles in one of the updates earlier this year too so move up to that (I assume you are still on whatever one you got banned on), if you are happy to ignore the kinect dash for a while/want an older one http://www.xboxhacker.org/index.php?topic=9414.0 usually has it all.

    Thanks for the tips, FAST. I have the same problem, and I should actually get around doing this [​IMG]

    I haven't used my 360 since. I should actually update the Dash to avoid this happening again.

    so basically just update the banned 360 (via usb drive) and it wont corrupt anymore?
    so I could move my profile to either box earn achievements on the banned system and it will show up fine on the regular 360?

    You might have to uncorrupt the existing files/profiles but yeah the update stopped the corruption from happening again.
    It also added USB drive support (you get some space-up to 16 gigs- set aside for such things) making the USB drive appear as a memory card of sorts (before you could only do things like update) so you can transfer stuff more easily (and being a USB drive also transfer it to your PC) and yeah that should stretch to achievements.

    You might run into trouble with a few games (you will probably not have your keyvault for that console and have to use another).

    You are mixing up things, profiles still get corrupted they only removed the hdd crippling (which means you can install games again on the harddrive) with that update.

    Oh? I was under the impression they restored everything but Live and divx playback (which was tied to it in some way) with that update.

    If that is the case you are going to have to either pass things by your PC on the way to the other console or restore the secdata.bin from backup/wear levelling.

    That requires many of the same tools, wiring and techniques as JTAG.

    I guess the best/easiest option would be that device then and some program

    Im just after the profile, not interested in saves

    Yes a USB HDD Transfer Kit is really simple. Just plug in everything install the Driver, and then have a program extract the Profile. I personally use Modio, because of it's features, but it seems like you might need another program to Uncorrupt your Profile.
