Motherboard

Extra unnamed header used for TITAN board, near ROL board connector. \==TITAN Board== Some board used for CPU debugging (?) Has DIP switches which have unknown functions LED lights for indicating something DIP switches are set to 4 down, 3 up, 2 down, 1 down (from a china xedk), although this can be random.

CPU key and 1BL key set to 00...00 (16 bytes of 00's) \==Pre-1838== 1640 seems to include some strings to do with xshell "\Device\Harddisk0\Partition1\dashboard.xbx", "\Device\Harddisk0\Partition1\xshell.xex", 1746 doesn't have a single mention Bootloader names are different, instead of SB/SC/SD/SE/SF/SG it's S2/S3/S4/S5/S6/S7 Kernel seems to have version field blanked out in the SE section, and different magic bytes on decompression. ECC data is different: *2 bytes to indicate block number, but second byte has 0xF0 added to it, XOR that byte with 0xF0 to get true number

  • Doesn't indicate where the FS blocks are
  • Doesn't seem to have bad block management... probably does though

Uses a whole different file system for storing the dashboard files, instead of SFCX it uses FATX Loads more files inside FATX NANDs: *drivers.xex *xnet.xex *xlivebase.xex *xgi.xex *uvbase.xex *musicplayer.xex (not sure if this is there normally) *gamercard.xex *gamercard.xzp *livecommon.xzp *spa.bin *common.xzp *huduiskin.xzp *processdump.xex *rrbkgnd.bmp *saferec.bmp *recovery.ttf \=File Formats=

XEX1 format for xex files instead of XEX2... xorloser where are you?

Pre-1839

Keyvault is different (e.g. console serial is 0x18 bytes?!) Keyvault also has different device keys, which stops wireless controllers from working Also, console security certificate is incomplete-ish: *Part number set to 12345678901 *No manufacturing date? *Console type is weird, 0x80000002, normally when it ends in 02 it's retail :S
