should've been around the 13xxx kernel update. I don't have a dump of the update, but my mind is telling me it was 13599. I think that's when xgd3 support was added to the system. it was probably shortly after that, so check when that dash kernel was released.
maybe, I don't know. I think normally you had to reflash back to stock before taking the 13599 update or it would give a specific error. it's possible the same update was applied, maybe before lt 3.0 was released, like around the day of that dash kernel's release. I guess that's possible.
I think with xebuild and jrunner, there was a patch to circumvent the drive from being flashed officially. it may be on by default, because I don't remember having to return to stock flashing my main jtag, but I think you had to if using official dash kernel. afaik, the only truly important file is the one that says su in the name of an official update. it's the only one patched for jtag/rgh afaik, and it's around 12MBs last time I checked.
I only know that because I've manually updated my jtag before using command line. I have a tutorial on it, but it's obsolete now. you have to know a lot about your system. it's easy as hell to flash a new nand build now, almost idiot proof, as all info is read by the nand dump itself.
Yea i think so, same goes with Bioshock Infinite and i think GOW3. In fact even the size of the isos exceeds 8.5 or whatever the limit is for DVD9 discs, so it has a certain way to burned or the disc will be incomplete and fail.
yeah, you can probably tell by the iso size. xgd2 games, iirc, are 7.05 or 7.29GBs regardless of the actual game size, due to padding and security sectors. xgd3 games are probably larger, and likely have a set size for all of them as well.
another possibility is the layer break causing a problem. that's what the .dvd file is for. you don't need it if you set the layer break in imgburn by default for dvd-9. however, I'm sure the layer break for xgd3 games is different than xgd2 games, which was like 1,931,760 or something like that off hand memory. it's close to that, but you can check in the .dvd file as it will specify the layer break. that's the file's entire purpose.
I'm straight as well, but I like teasing @AncientBoi . I like him a lot. I don't care if someone is gay or transgender at all. all I care about is what's on the inside of a person's heart. sound like a cbs special. haha
