Maximus 1.1 Hitachi Firmware Stealth-Maker - ALL VERSIONS !!!
---------------------------------------------------------

WHAT IS IT ?
---------- 
   It is a tool to take any hacked xtreme version for the hitachi and
   patch it to make 100% firmware stealth (appears like 100% original
   when you dump it) including the CHECKSUM !!!

   The only way to know if it has the hack is de-soldering the flash
   chip and read with external programmer, so the console will dont
   know !!! (I hope)

   It is NOT MEDIA-STEALTH yet, garyopa is already working on that 
   side but when he finish that part he can implement this hack on his
   version. 

   I first do the stealth hack mannually, but then I realized that
   it is a pain in the ass to calculate the differences by hand, and
   when a new xtreme release appears it will need to be calculated again
   so instead of that I have done a tool that do the necessary
   calculations and patches to make it stealth   
   
   I have done the tests only on 46 and 47 drives but is the same
   principle for every others.


FEATURES:
---------
 - Take an input hacked firmware and patch it to make firmware stealth
 - Incorporates firmcrypt routines into the code (a little slower but
   I hope with that somebody will not kill his drive because a forgotten
   crypt)
 - You will have the following options:
       FULL STEALTH:
         * All the reads (memdump) will read as 100% original.

       NON STEALTH ON MODEB: 
         * It will read the real hacked firmware when you are on MODEB
           (Not very useful for testing LOL)
                
       NON STEALTH ON MODEB AND TRAY OPEN: 
         * When attached to windows if the tray is closed will read as 
           original, when you open it will read as real non-stealth

       NON STEALTH ON MEMORY VALUE:
         * It will lookup an Internal memory value to determine if should
           be read as real or as original. You will need to POKE that
           memory value before do the dump

       ENSURE NO STEALTH:
         * This option causes ALWAYS read as real hacked, not very useful
           but here is it.


TECHNICAL INFO:
---------------
 - Supports 32/36/40/46/47/58/59 versions and ALL present and future 
   XTREME HACK versions

 - Protects the following ranges wich already are SAME_BYTE address 
          0X0001A0 - 0x000FFF  all 0xFF
          0X003000 - 0x003FFF  all 0xFF
          0x005000 - 0x005FFF  all 0x74
          0x03E800 - 0x03FFFF  all 0x74
	  * That means that you can put your custom code on the above areas
            (except the 5000-5FFF, read below) and the custom code will be stealth

 - For other areas not covered on the above ranges a "Table of Differences"
   is generated based on comparation of original Vs hacked, this is in order
   to guarantee 100% stealth and reduce at minimum the data required for stealth

 - It uses flash range 0x005000 - 0x005FFF for store stealth data and code 
	  0x005000 - 0x005800 reserved for stealth code
	  0x005800 - 0x005FFF reserved for stealth data (Table of Differences)
          * So on future Hacks dont use that Sections (they are mine, lol)
 - If you are a hacker and plan to release something read APPENDIX


HOW TO USE / TEST:
------------------
CASE A) If you already have your drive flashed (any version of XTREME):
	- Attach the drive to windows and make it detect it (Use 2 wire trick 
          or Open Tray on Power Up tweak)

        - Do a dump of your hacked firmware on the drive with:

            read.bat <your_drive_letter> hacked.bin
             * The read.bat is included on the tools directory

        - Open Hitachi Stealth-Maker App and select the file hacked.bin that you dump
             * To do good test use NON-STEALTH ON MODEB AND TRAY OPEN option ;)

        - Click Generate, choose Output file name (stealth.bin by example) and away you go

        - Once finished, take the ENCRYPTED file (suffix "-e.bin") and do the following 2 
          commands IN THAT ORDER (flasher's included on tools subfolder)

	        47flash <your_drive_letter> stealth-e.bin 90005000 1000 
	           *dont advance until the above command executes without error (if error, retry)

                47flash <your_drive_letter> stealth-e.bin 90033000 1000

		*NOTES: *    DO BOTH COMMANDS IN THAT ORDER !!!, 
                        **   On versions 32,36,40 and 46 you must use 46flash instead !!!
                        ***  On versions 47 you must use 47flash instead !!!
                        **** On versions 59,59 you must use 59flash instead !!!

        - If you dont mess any step then your drive is now STEALTH !!! give a try with
                read.bat <your_drive_letter> dump.bin
                   *It must return the original firmware 100%
                    do it again but with tray open and you will get the real hacked.

        - In case you need to RESTORE to un-stealth version you must restore the 
          sectors on inverse order, so first restore 90033000 and then 90005000
	  never flash the second sector before flashing sucessfully the first 
          one or you will brick the drive (no more windows detection) also ensure
          to restore from a crypted version of your firmware.
       
CASE B) If your drive is not flashed:
	- Until Garyopa and other hackers implement this hack on their releases you
          will need to do in 2 big steps:
	        - STEP 1: flash the xtreme hack you want (follow such instruccions)
	        - STEP 2: when you have tested it works simply do the stealth hack
                          as explained on CASE A)


APPENDIX - HOW TO IMPLEMENT ON CURRENT OR FUTURE XTREME RELEASES:
-----------------------------------------------------------------    
	- Do your homework and make a nice new featured xtreme version
	- To avoid hybrids DONT work on an already stealth version, work on a
          clean version
        - Dont use 5000-5FFF sections, they are mine ;)
 	- Before release, use this tool to patch your release with the needed
          changes to make it stealth
        - On the flasher routines (flash.bat) remember that you must flash
          sectors 90005000 and then 90033000 in that order, never flash the
          second sector before flashing sucessfully the first one or you will
          KILL the read routine and brick the drive (no more windows detection)
        - You can leave a DOOR OPENED I mean if you choose "Non Stealth on MODEB
          and OPEN TRAY" you always will get the possiblity to read the real hacked
          firmware on the chip (for verification purposes) but of course that   
          will leave the door opened for M$ 
        - On the RESTORE routines (flash.bat) you must flash the sectors on 
          inverse order, so first restore 90033000 and then 90005000
	  never flash the second sector before flashing sucessfully the first 
          one or you will KILL the read routine and brick the drive 
          (no more windows detection)
