How to JTAG your Xbox 360 and run homebrew

Step 4: Dumping the nand

Picture of Dumping the nand
Download the files here (I forgot to include nandpro get that here)
Extract the rar, and open up the nandpro folder
install port95nt.exe (if running vista or 7 set it for compatibility mode for xp.)
Plug your Xbox 360 in, but don't power it on.
Plug the lpt cable in
Pop open cmd and change directories to your nandpro folder
type nandpro lpt: -r16 nand.bin
It will start to dump, this will take 35 minutes
Type nandpro lpt: -r16 nand2.bin and dump it a second time.

If during the dump it has trouble reading blocks, don't worry.  You only have a problem if can't read block after block, which means something went wrong in the middle of the dump and you have to restart it again.

If you are having issues having nandpro detecting it, go over and double check all of your soldering. If you skipped out on the diode, try adding one, and just restarting your computer has fixed the issue quite a few times for me. You also want to make sure your cable is short as possible.

i can't install porn95nt.exe, it says incompatability with x64 bit verson of windows 7 (i did change the compatability to Windows xp service pack 2)

Shouldn't have an LPT port on a windows 7 computer anyway...

This goes out to all having trouble dumping nand through lpt
1. make shure 360 is plugged in both wall and motherboard
2.make shure plugged up to lpt good and snug

no results then go into to system bios and check if lpt is
1. enabled
2. set to EPP+ECP mode or into normal if in EPP+ECP

still no results
1.check soldering
2.check soldering
3.check soldering

nothing again?
1.check direction of diodes
2.add/remove the 100 ohm resisters on pins 1,2,14,16,17

nothing again bad lpt port/xbox

I had tried reading the nand and got the error about flash cannot be found i resoldered everything and then after around an hour... i then read that the power plug had to be inserted into the xbox 360 and it plugged into the wall after i done this it read first time on port 0378 so this is just a tip for those who also receives this error
getting an error trying to dump:

Testing LPT device address:0378
Testing LPT device address:0278
Testing LPT device address:03BC
Could not detect a flash controller!
Can not continue

help !!?????
Like a previous statement ensure that your XBOX POWER PLUG is inserted into the xbox when using nandpro but DO NOT TURN XBOX ON!!
I have checked my soldering very many times and added the diodes and restarted my computer but nandpro still doesnt detect it, What do i do?

did you make sure the diodes are facing the correct direction, thats what my problem was, it took me hours to discover it, i was about to give up too.

hey i got the same error how did you fix it help ?
hey how do i change directories to my nandpro folder help ?
I got this to I reread the instructions and found that when it says plug in the 360 it means the power cord I thought it meant plug the lpt cable to the 360 then plug the lpt cable to the pc

i even tried adding a diode to DB25.11 to J1D2.4, tried it both ways to get the polarity.

its most likely a finicky port on the computer. I've had the problem too, usually restarting the computer with it plugged in at boot up has fixed it for me and got windows to detect it.

J281 actually

Thank you for the reply but I am still having trouble. I've narrowed down the problem maybe, because i noticed if I unplug J2D1.5(I think that's the part where you just use 5 and 6) the xbox will be able to start up while plugged into the computer.
how do i Pop open cmd and change directories to your nandpro folder?? help

Wasn't detected at first, got the

error. I unsoldered everything, used a thicker guage wire (instead of the gamecube controller wire I was using), and got rid of the diode. I resoldered and triple checked everything, and it is now dumping.

I also used this wiring diagram: http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=693742
(the new xenon one).
