    So if you are like me and have no idea what you did with your original nand or it has bad block you can still update!


    What you need:

    1.) Get Your CPU Key - Directions Here

    2.) Flash360

    3.) freeBOOT v0.032

    4.) libeay32.dll if you have issues with ibuild

    5.) 9199.zip

    6.) 1BL Key (just google for 1BL XBOX)

    7.) Hex editor

    8.) Donor Files for your Motherboard - Donor Files for all

    9.) The official MS Xbox Update $SystemUpdate_9199.zip (Optional)


    How to build a FreeBOOT Image:

    1.) Boot into Xellous and read out your CPU Key

    2.) Start Flash360 and create a Full Nand Backup of your XBR3 (flashdmp.bin)

    3.) open flashdmp.bin with a Hex editor, at the top you should find CB0=####. Record that numbrt

    4.) extract freeboot v0.032 , the libeay32.dll should go into *\freeBOOT-0.032\

    5.) copy your XBR3 Backup (flashdmp.bin) to *\freeBOOT-0.032\bin

    6.) open the Dos Command prompt (Start>Run> type 'cmd' )

    7.) cd to the freeboot root directory ("cd *\freeboot-0.032") and paste:

    8.) ibuild x -d data\ -b "1BL Key" -p "CPU Key" bin\flashdmp.bin
    "1BL Key" replace it with the 1BL Key
    "CPU Key" replace it with your CPU Key

    9.) THERE WILL BE AN ERROR, but we don't care about it, because we only need 3 files from it

    10.) Go to *\freeBOOT-0.032\data delete everything except only these 3 files should stay kv.bin, smc.bin and smc_config.bin

    11.) Extract 9199.zip into *\freeBOOT-0.032\data

    12.) Extract Donor_Files.zip in a different directory.

    13 & 14) In the Donor Folder, open the folder for your Motherboard (Falcon, Jasper, Xenon). Then choose the folder that is the number of your CB0, found with the hex editor earlier.

    15.) Copy the files (crl.bin, crl.bin.meta, extended.bin, extended.bin.meta, odd.bin, odd.bin.meta, secdata.bin, secdata.bin.meta) into *\freeBOOT-0.032\data

    16.) Open the Dos Command prompt

    17.) cd *\freeBOOT-0.032

    18.) ibuild.exe c freeBOOT -c [Console] -d data\ -p [CPU Key] -b [1BL Key] bin\image.bin bin\fuses.bin

    [Console] replace it with falcon, xenon, jasper, jasper256 or jasper512
    [1BL Key] replace it with the 1BL Key
    [CPU Key] replace it with your CPU Key

    the Image creation need to finish without errors!!!!

    19.) you should find now a image.bin in your *\freeBOOT-0.032\bin folder, the size should be the same as your XBR Nand Backup.

    20.) Rename now image.bin to updflash.bin and put it on the root of your USB Stick where you have flash360 on it

    21.) Connect the Usb Stick to your console and open Flash360.xex

    22.) now flash with A B A, if there is a KV mismatch, then you did something wrong, wrong CPU Key.......

    23.) now you should have the freeBOOT image installed, check it out in your Settings, it should tell you 2.0.9199.0

    OPTIONAL
    24.) now to make it complete we install also the official Systemupdate, to install the missing files.

    25.) extract the $SystemUpdate_9199.zip and burn a CD with $SystemUpdate_9199 on it

    26.) now put the CD into your Xbox drive, start something and it should tell you that there is a new update avaible, install it.

    27.) after a reboot your are finally at 2.0.9199.0
