    The user Zerrix who seems to know his stuff mentioned in another thread that 1.6 firmware will be released soon and that it would allow the user to dump data from the 360 to a PC directly. Is this true? If so I would wait!! But as Bob Marley said 'I don't want to wait in vain'. [​IMG]

    It would be great to be able to backup originals without extra hardware. Anyway let me know if you know anything, thanks for reading!

    Yes, like I said, this IS true. But many people say the new function isn't so comfortable as it seems, they rather rely on the old method. But I guess since it hasn't got any new features expect this inside for now, you can flash it up to 1.5. But anyways, what's the problem? Flash it to 1.5 now and then to 1.6 when it comes out [​IMG]

    Thanks for your reply! What did you mean by 'many people say the new function isn't so comfortable as it seems, they rather rely on the old method'?

    Oh and I would flash it now and later on with 1.6 but it costs me $50 each time 8)

    You gotta open your Xbox Drive and connect it to the PC if you want to read out games from your x360 to your PC each time, and therefore many people on the iNet meant that having a drvie in your pc is much more comfortable than each time connecting the x360 drive to the pc.

    And I'd recommend you to flash now to 1.5 because who knows when xTREME 1.6 is coming out? ^^
    You should flash it now or you don't know what you're missing! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Well, c4eva said it was scheduled to be released late January, but hold your pants on, I guess c4eva knows what he is doing! [​IMG]
    I'm sure you will see Hitachi Update very soon! [​IMG]
