Hoth Datacron Locations
There are 5 Datacrons on Hoth.
Datacron 1 - Republic and Empire
(Red Matrix Shard)
Codex Entry - Galactic History 66: The Jedi Covenant
First you need to buy a Hydro-Thinner. Republic players can buy it from the Aurek Base Cantina Vendor at -3533, -1382. Empire players can buy it from the Dorn Base Cantina Vendor at -2633, 915. It costs 18,000 credits. Go to the Datacron’s location in Highmount Ridge and use the Hydro-Thinner on it. It’s encased in ice, and is kind of hard to see. I drove right past it 3 times trying to find it.

Datacron 2 - Republic and Empire
Codex Entry - Galactic History 65: An Exile on Rhen Var
This one is located in the Glacial Fissure area. To get to it, first go through a cave that starts at 1049, -1035. After you go thru the cave turn left, and go up the hill. At 1205, -977 jump up on the ice ledge and follow it around to the left. At 1143, -1075 jump down from the ledge. Be sure you are on the uphill side of the ice ledge below you, or you will have to fight your way back through the cave again. After you jump down, go up the hill a little and turn right. You will see a passage that leads to a cave. Go through the cave, and it will end at the Datacron.

Datacron 3 - Republic and Empire
Codex Entry - Galactic History 63: The Terentatek Hunt
This one is located in the Starship Graveyard area on the second floor of the Star of Coruscant. The entrance to the Star of Coruscant is in the southeast corner of the Starship Graveyard area at 2882, 448. First, when you get off the elevator to the second floor, go to your left. You will see the first moving crate going from left to right in the room. Climb up the crates on the left side of the room. Work your way towards the small wall to your right. Then jump over to a ledge on that wall. Walk around this ledge, and then jump down onto another large crate. Now wait for the first moving crate to arrive. When it does hop onto it, and ride it across the room. On the other side hop onto the large crates, and climb to the highest one. Then wait for the next moving crate to arrive, and hop onto it. Ride it half way across the room until it meets up with the crate that moves up and down in front of the Datacron. Hop onto it when it is even with the crate you are riding. Wait for it to rise up to the Datacron’s level, and hop off onto the Datacron’s ledge.

Datacron 4 - Republic and Empire
Codex Entry - Galactic History 64: The Kanz Disorders
This one is located in the northeast corner of the Starship Graveyard. You need to go to 2610, -848 in the Jedi Encampment Heroic Area and start climbing the ice. Work your way towards the arch you went through when you entered the area. Go over the top of the arch and jump down onto the ice ledge below you. From there work your way towards the edge of the huge crashed ship. Run along the ledge on the ship you’ll have to jump down at the end to an ice ledge below you. Follow it around to another starship ledge. Follow that ledge, until it ends with ice. Follow the ice ledge around and up to the next level of the starship. At the end of the path you find the Datatcron.

Datacron 5 - Republic and Empire
Go to the area of -4015, 24 in the western area of Clabburn Tundra, and find the Ancient Probe. It patrols this area, so you may need to look around for it. It’s a level 47 Champion, so you’ll need some help to take him down. He drops a Depleted Datacron. Once you have this take it to the north entrance to the Star of Coruscant at 2991, -94 in the Starship Graveyard. There you can use the Coupled Recharge Station to charge the Datacron, and use it.
Note: To get to the Coupled Recharge Station, you need to go to 2916, -94 and run up a pipe at that location. At the top of the pipe turn back, and run along the ledge to a point above the Coupled Recharge Station. Then just drop down on top of the Coupled Recharge Station and use it.
