    I'm hoping there is an alpha recovery in my tapes. Found references to Xbox 2 SDK, but no files yet. Will be a bit before I get back to dumping them

    That would be sick. I always find stuff from years back on flash drives. I used to be one of those ya now... Easy Techs at staple.. I'd just about walk home with a flash drive every day so I'm religious when it comes to storing on flash drives and not external hdds. so much easier to label them and pop it in a droor =p

    You have to remember where these files came from. The 21265.18 shadowboot rom that allows access to Prod was made (or at least commissioned and distributed by) the XBL ninja guys so they could advertise XDK support on their service. The files have all been custom made, mostly by a very small group of individuals, some with access to the original internal tools to produce the files and others who have reverse engineered the structure and used their knowledge of the 360 to custom tailor roms for their own purposes. There really aren't any "limits" to the shadowboot rom, it literally gives us raw access almost the entire Xbox 360 boot loader from CB up; it just happens that the public roms floating around have been tailored to some specific use cases.

    I don't think anyone has given oscar193 enough credit for what has probably been the biggest official (and by that I mean not leaked, stolen) release in the recent history of the development scene. He actually reverse engineered the shadowboot rom and gave us the tools to do what I was only stepping over in my research; huge props to him. This is exactly the kind of stuff a modding scene thrives on, public information that others can build and learn from, not whispers passed around in private messages.

    I'm going to have some free time within the next couple weeks, and what I'd like to do is bring this as far as I can by finishing up on a couple of half-finished ideas I had a while back.

    I have a huge pack of Xbox 360 xdk and recovery versions and files. I don't know if any of the items people are looking for but I'd be happy to share if there is interest. I don't know if this pack is readily available elsewhere. If it is disregard my post!

    Here is a screenshot of the NFO file with the list of what is included in the pack. Just right-click the image and open in a new tab to view full size. I didn't want to have the long image take up pages for 1 post.:

    Why oh why are there no recovery ISOs for alpha kits? :(

    I assume the 1888.0 recovery iso isn't too far away from the last alpha version, but I can't remember

    File format would be the issue... Alpha recoveries were xex0 while Beta were xex1, but even then 1888 is final (xex2) if I remember correctly... I have yet to find ISO or Remote for a beta unit myself. Would save the trouble of swapping Beta nands around.

    This was already uploaded around here somewhere, its spread in two mega accounts and there is a torrent we can seed if people need the files.

    I'd actually be interested in getting a seed group for the archive in the nfo. I have a few of the versions I'm missing due to them not being seeded any more.

    I started seeding it again and will do so on and off for the next few days or so.

    Code:
    magnet:?xt=urn:btih:9d4ff4d6af7e1894b3a007bbc637bb10520d25ac&dn=XDK&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Ftracker.openbittorrent.com%3A80&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Ftracker.publicbt.com%3A80&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Ftracker.ccc.de%3A80
    EDIT: I uploaded all of it to mega but I have no idea where those links went.

    Thanks! I appreciate the link and help! I can just use the magnet link you gave. Don't worry about going to the effort to find the old links unless someone else would be interested in them as well.

    Edit: The one you have actually has some additional versions that weren't in my original download! Thanks again.

    I may actually request those links you mentioned before. The seeds on the pack have halted around 16% for me. If you'd be willing to find them I'd be thankful for the help.

    Oh, I didn't realize that the seed was actually coming from you! Sorry if that came across wrong. I thought it was a general group file you had linked to. I will just turn the download back on I can be patient since there is really no rush. Thanks for letting me know about the seeding.

    Here is most of that pack but I recall my internet cutting at the end so there is 5 or so remote recoveries missing.

    Code:
    https://mega.nz/#F!voIzCAjQ!FoAE6zLRzo2QAoBCDP5dPg
    Code:
    https://mega.nz/#F!LYh0GC7T!MnbNb-YKg5o7JUorImWGKA
    EDIT: You could just download from mega then use the torrent to get the missing ones if you wanted to speed things up.
