The best method to obtain the firmware is by using Xbins. Xbins is an IRC channel and FTP server that hosts Xbox and Xbox 360 mod files, homebrew programs, and development software.

If you have never used Xbins before, the easiest method is to use Ground Zero's automated Xbins downloader.


Download the self-extracting archive and run the xbins.exe file. It will ask you where you want to save the files, choose your desktop. Now, go into the "Xbins" folder on your desktop and run the .bat file. The program will automatically connect to the IRC channel, message the bot, and connect to the FTP server. When filezilla opens up you should see the local Xbins folder on your left side, and a few folders on your right side (this is the FTP server).

The hacked firmware can be found in:

/XBOX 360/firmware/hacked firmware/Samsung SH-D162C/


/XBOX 360/firmware/hacked firmware/Samsung SH-D163A/

Simply drag the "SH-D162C_KREON_V081.RAR" or "SH-D163A_KREON_V080.RAR" file over to the left side of FileZilla and wait for it to finish downloading. You can use WinRAR or 7-zip to extract the RAR archive.

Read the "How to upgrade firmware.txt" included in the RAR archive for instructions on flashing your drive with the Kreon firmware.

When the drive is flashed with the Kreon firmware, you can start making backups of your Xbox 360 games, by using Xbox Backup Creator 2.4 or SchtromExtract 3.2. Personally i like what both programs have to offer. Just pop in the 360 game and press the most obvious buttons in the program =P
