I have extracted the rom blocks from a firmware and unpacked them using the tool. Attached the zipped files. When the drive starts clicking and the fails with "WDC-ROM SN# XYZ----" "WDC ROM MODEL-BUCCANER-"..look at the unpacked block 6 => bk6_up.bin :)

btw. I've finished the packing option too. The tool it's now complete for "rom modding" :lol:

louis - Did you finish the compression option for your unpacker? The version posted says unimplemented. I'm very interested in this exploration.

Regards.

Hi all

@dustyhair I still haven't decided if.. to make that packer version public.

@Spildit I'm working these days (in my free time) at my tool. I'm coding the server side scripts to handle an online database with wd firmwares. Off-course, that must be populated in time by the users of my application. Do u have an idea of how many wd models exist? If I store 3 firmware versions for each model I could estimate the disk space required on server side.


le:ok, found something here. about 1500models. x3 x7MB (medium firmware size) =~ 30-35GB online space needed

Thanks for the heads up.
Looks like a nice tool indeed !
Hope that you can make it public in the near furute, or sell it at a decent price.
I like the idea of a server based database from where the tool will pull the firmware as needed.
Best regards.

that page doesn't hold any firmware files. it's just a list of wd models made by a software which doesn't serve for firmware repair.

Found a nice VSC command. ReadMemory(address, size). I can dump the 0xffff0000 aka the bootstrap...if that's the address on my marvel; or the unpacked blocks of code described in the table at the beginning of the rom.bin :)


@louis
Would you be willing to share the specifics of the ReadMemory VSC command (or at least where you found it)? I'd like to do some analysis of my own without having to hookup JTAG.
