Damn and here I went and updated people to 1.51.
To save others the hassle one NFO:
Code:
Team HyperX Presents IXtreme 1.6 firmware for Benq, Samsung and Liteon drives
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

IXtreme fw for Benq, Samsung and Liteon drives!


Features
--------

-Strict Wave 3 compliance! hybrid (modified disks) will not boot! 

-Strict drive speed compliance - 12x only for game discs! 

-Support for SS V2! 

-Integrated 0800 for game dumping including SS v2! 

-Full support for all known game exceptions! eg ddr etc! 

-One shot boot mode! - allows a one off boot of gamedisc without -stealth/partition checks (will still use stealth), use activate.iso disk to activate each time! 

-Support for easy drive key/version info cmd, same as liteon! 

-Strict stealth/wave checking, one shot boot mode will boot wave(x)! 


More Info
---------


Strict Wave 3 compliance means wave 3 games will only boot if they have correct PFI/DMI/SS and timestamp for wave 3

Strict drive speed compliance means games will only boot if drive is set for the initial speed of 12x, any modification of this make games fail to boot

SS v2 suports multiple timing samples for challenges type 5 and 7 , stroing them in the SS. This is a pre-requiste for SS v3 which has support for the so called AP2.5 check. Since this has never been used or may never be used by MS we will adopt a wait and see approach and continue to monitor for its usage.

With drive in Windows mode (Tray half open on powerup) 0800 mode is activated allowing easy dumping of game disc including SS v2. In this mode the drive is also able to output drive key, fw version and drive type by using a simple custom inquiry command.

Game exceptions are integrated in the fw for games that do not comply with the strict wave checks but are legitimate. These are Dance Dance Revolution Universe, Stoked, Ping 17 disk, afro samurai

One shot boot mode allows you to boot a Wave X or non stealth game by using the activate.iso disk as a flag. Just insert the activate disc and the next disc inserted will boot without any strict checks. This will still utilise full stealth if available. As soon as that disc is booted the flag is cleared, and you will have to re-insert the activate disk again to enable one shot boot. As always use with caution.

I am not very familiar with the stuff posted that comes with 1.6..I currently have 1.5.1..is 1.6 really necessary, I just don't want any issues with any of the newer games that come out that might require it..I had someone flash my drive for me, so if necessary, I will have to go back and have him put in the update

Hi,

So im on 1.5 and i have discs that i have patched to work with wave 3.
If i upgrade to 1.6 will that mean that these discs will no longer work?

Cheers

I've been waiting for it for a while now. I'm upgrading from 1.5 to 1.6 as we speak.

Finished updating. I was scared for a minute cause none of my backups or originals were working. But then I restarted the 360 and they work now.

Just want to confirm, the "patched" discs meaning patched to work on 1.5 or lower right?

Because some wave 3 games I got came with stealth related files that I actually needed to embed before burning. Hopefully discs that run on 1.51 also run on 1.6.

Yeah I'm not understanding this patched thing either. I am currently running 1.5.1..does this mean that if I want to upgrade to 1.6, that all of my burnt games will not work and I will have to burn them all over again or no

Patched means wave three games that were patched for 1.5 or below, to remove the wave three video partition!

They'll work if you use the activate.iso disc. Hopefully you aren't playing these patched games online.
