Re: Xplorer carts

Hi, Sorry for the late reply. X-killer is an old close source tool from 1999, see attached files. I don't really have any technical knowledge regarding the cheat DB management/encryption. Maybe you could try reversing X-killer itself if that could bring some answer ? In the meantime, i could get and...

Re: Xplorer carts

Ah thanks for confirming it came from an Atmel based device ! You won't need to ask the donator who provided the Winbond based device you dumped the 4.55 from. Since i already verified the issue with such carts, i guess that validates it's a similar issue like with the German r4.50 PRO 1999-10-25 ro...

Re: Xplorer carts

I checked your dumps and could get 2.006 and 4.55 roms to work just fine with my devices. On the other hand, 3.18 hangs on a black screen past the Blaze logo. My Xplorer FX Pro and X-Terminator Pro DX have a Winbond W29C040P-90 512K eeprom. So i tried flashing my own 3.18 dump to and the same happen...

Re: Xplorer carts

Thank you very much for the dumps, i'll check them when i get free time. :) 2. There are user-added cheats found in the last 128KB section, too. I'm not entirely sure about this. Since original .fcd only cover the first 384Kb area for the rom program/cheat db, isn't the last 128Kb chunk reserved for...

Re: Xplorer carts

And I can confirm the v3.18 one is completely new and untouched in the package. As I just did its dumping 2 or 3 weeks ago. For the other two, I'm not sure if there is no user-added code in them. I dumped them just for backing up, as I borrowed those two carts from one of my friends for checking th...

Re: Xplorer carts

The tail of last 128KB of X-Terminator Pro DX(JP) stores header data and should be dumped if possible. I noticed almost all dumps here missed that. Hi, This header data isn't part of original .fcd files . It's created at first boot and/or while accessing the VMS function for the very first time. Th...

Re: Xplorer carts

Hi, i bought it from Japanese market. The update was already on 4.54 the first time i tested it. Also i found out the update is quite rare. So i share it here maybe it will be useful to someone. :D The current Xplorer romset doesn't have much Japanese roms so this one is very welcome. It will be ad...

Re: Xplorer carts

Hey many thanks for this one ! :)
Didn't know there was a 4.54 X-Terminator release, i thought the latest one for it was 4.53.
Did you get your cart with this version already installed or did you manually update it from an .fcd file ?

Re: Newer X-Flash Builds

Most 2.x and 3.x Datel roms were extracted from official upgrade discs by kHn, so they should afaik be the cleanest ones we could have. :)

Re: UniROM 8.0.C - CartDetector, AR/GS V2 Support, ExHandler, etc

Is there a list somewhere about what roms and their variants are on the Unirom-discs and what flashsize they require? I don't have such list on hand but you can simply load Unirom's iso with an emulator such as DuckStation and check available roms/sizes from the "Install Unirom -> Restore Cart...

Re: Newer X-Flash Builds

Nope, i don't have this one yet so it would be welcome if you could dump it. :)
The latest dumps collection is included with Unirom's disc (8.0.Eish / 8.0.Fish).

Re: New exploit - arbitrary code execution with ONLY a memory card (no game needed)

Confirming it's also working with SCPH-7002 and SCPH-7502 consoles since they share the same bios version you're currently targetting for the SCPH-9002 one.
Great work ! :)

Re: tonyhax - PS1 softmod backup loader thing using THPS2/3

Sorry, i have no idea how to trigger the AP on no$psx. I have it to trigger using real hardware, my original discs and either NO$CASH Kernel Clone , Unirom or n00bROM which all make use of Nocash Unlock. On the other hand, it does trigger using pSX 1.13 if you can make something out of its debugger.

Re: tonyhax - PS1 softmod backup loader thing using THPS2/3

You may want to check the following titles where the AP triggers aswell when using the Nocash unlock :

Biohazard 3 - Last Escape (Japan) [Internal Serial: SLPS-02300]
Dino Crisis (Japan) [Internal Serial: SLPS-02180]
Seiken Densetsu - Legend of Mana (Japan, Asia) [Internal Serial: SLPS-02170]

Re: Xplorer carts

Thanks for the dump.
Already had a copy of this one provided by another user last year. ;)
It was also dumped from a used cartridge, so the codelist is altered aswell.

Side note, my latest Xplorer romset is included with Unirom thanks to Sickle. :)
