    Can't post the source since its a warez site but Modcontrol states that on IRC C4eva said that Ixtreme 1.61 will be released by the end of this month.

    In German:
    Woop, looks I'll be playing Modern Warfare 2 after all. [​IMG]

    Next week is the end of the month...

    I think this also means abgx360 1.0.2 isn't far behind either.

    We do not know for certain but given tekken is wave 4, a good chunk of releases big and small are too and we are looking at a just over 3 week wait until street date it is a very good bet.

    As I understand it games have a given wave and all games mastered after a certain date (it is on the disc, ABGX360 will tell you) will be of a given wave but there are a few outlying games, this is the reason for the lines from the iextreme release notes:

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

    Looks like I will be back with a 360 news post in the morning as well.

    I wish they would release the new firmware since a few of the games I Have such as Tekken 6, Fairytale Fights, and Grand Theft Auto Liberty City are wave 4. I would never use that patch method since that gets you banned from XBOX Live

    Using the activate disc now to play wave 4 is just as safe as 1.61 will be when it comes out.

    Unfortunately Lite-On drives won't get the new firmware over the weekend. It's not even in testing.

    I know I'm off topic but does anyone know if a fix is in the works for the Liteon 83850c (made after AUG 2009) and 93450c?

    Dang, I totally lost. I don't know if I should get a 360 from walmart, risking it be non moddable? Or should I just use my $100 giftcard to get MW2 and wait it out.
