Short version- this is more or less the same as any other hacked DVD firmware update in that you grab the base firmware, grab the matching version of jungleflasher, wind in your keys and flash that to your drive. http://www.jungleflasher.net/downloads.html has jungleflasher and tutorials but as per usual one needs to look a bit harder to find the firmware. Background. The recent dashboard update (and the betas of it) reflashed the DVD drives ostensibly to support the as yet unseen (aside from the discs sent with the beta) XDG3 disc format which in and of itself removed the ability to play copied discs but MS also took the time to fiddle with a few things meaning a more or less complete rewrite was needed. You could have just flashed an old hacked firmware back (at the cost of XDG3 support) but it would not have been livesafe. LT1.9 has been released for Samsung (LT+ was for ap2.5 and samsung does not support this if you recall) LT+ v1.9 for the benq and liteon (as in the original liteons (be it 7 series, 8v1 , 8v2 or 9 series)- the liteons that come with the slim are another matter) have been released. XDG3 backup support is not available in these releases but if you have a pressed disc with it on then it should work. The upcoming 2.0 branch should support it and now 1.9 has been released some news on 2.0 should be forthcoming. Hitachi has no release planned as it seems the new dash updates have ignored it (we saw an Hitachi LT+ release a while back but aside from Hitachi drives of version 78 and 79 there is no AP2.5 there either). Also as has been known for a while now the AP2.5 titles will need to be reburned with new AP2.5 patches (I have not checked to see if they have been released at this time) although a new 0800 firmware that can dump them has been promised. It is assumed you know what LT in general means but for those unaware LT brought several changes but the big one for most people was that splitvid became mandatory where before it was an option and a fix for a far older firmware. All releases since LT got released should have it (scene rules state releases must be compatible with the firmware of the day) and many older ones will as well but not all, it is a simple thing to check and add with disc/iso checking tool ABGX360 but discs burned without it will need to be reburned with it. LT(+) v1.9 releases Code: C4E's iXtreme LT+ in association with Team Jungle & Team Xecuter ------------------------------ ---------------------------------- Official release of the iXtreme LT v1.9 for Samsung & LT+ v1.9 for Benq and Lite-On (phat models) - CFW's based on new XGD3 dashboard (2.0.13146.0) updated OFW's - supports booting AP25 backups and XGD3 originals. All AP2.5 titles will need to be re-patched as the DAE tables have been updated. Thanks go to Team Jungle for their hard work and efforts in the development process. Thanks also go to Team Xecuter for their support to this project. Jungleflasher changelog http://www.jungleflasher.net/downloads.html Code: JungleFlasher 0.1.84(250) ======================================== LT 1.9 Sammy & LT Plus 1.9 Benq and Liteon(phat) KeyDB --------------------------------------- Export to .csv file Import/Merge from .csv file We will try to keep you up to date here but http://c4evaspeaks.com/ is a good source of news in the meantime. The slim liteon 0225 should still be in testing although there were some tweaks done and for those that missed it the slim Lite-On (both versions including the 0401) has some hardware mods coming up (either board replacements for about $70 USD or considerably more troubling chip replacements for about $20 USD). No word on anything for the slim hitachi drive although these are quite rare apparently.
