    With the risk of only getting answers like "It's out when it's out!" and "Asking about it will only delay the release!" I ask you kindly if there's any news on the release of iXtreme 1.6.

    It was supposed to follow up the 1.51 iXtreme pretty fast but it's been 3 months or so. So I got a bit curious as I can't really find any news on it either.
    I'm not asking for a release date or an excuse or whatever, just some news on what's happening would be nice or interesting at the least.

    Sort of holding out on getting my 360 modded until 1.6 comes out.

    so, if anyone has any news about features, any problems they encountered or whatever please do post it.

    Thanks in advance!

    I think they are delaying it because microsoft is trying new anti-pirate methods and 1.6 is supposed to be more secure. Don't quote me on this though, I'm not entirely sure.

    Was this the new anti-piracy method you were referring to perhaps?
    Well, at least FIFA 09 is fine.
    I think they'll release the new FW soon as they will still be monitoring the new checks and nothing has changed yet really.
    Could be wrong though.

    Awesome stuff! Just read it on XS before heading here.
    50k... that's some mulah to spend on a drive and a hack...

    Anyway, thank you for posting this info!

    Does anyone know if that "one shot boot mode" will allow you to play modified games? Like texture hacks and stuff [​IMG]
    Because I have one of those discs and would like to play it.
    Otherwise, I wouldn't have a clue what that one-shot boot mode would do. As the firmware let's you play all the games currently available.
