    So it turns out "Major.League.BaseBall.2K9.USA.READNFO.XBOX360-x360inT" The latest 360 release has some weird 3rd video wave data on it which wont allow it to work on any ixtreme frimwares at the moment.

    Code:
    Hey there you're thinking great MLB 2K9
    
    http://s5.tinypic.com/14n22pz.jpg
    
    not that great..
    hate to be the grp to bring you bad news but this info needs to be rls'ed to the scene 
    people need to know there is gonna be probs with new games.
    I've included all the info we have found and also forwarded the 
    info and the rls to the stealth and fw teams.
    
    
    Basically,
    
    We have security features in the modded fw we use.
    these features make sure that the PFI and Video are from Wave 1 or Wave 2
    this was done to insure games not burnt right or with the data missing 
    wouldn't boot and lead to bannings.
    
    When we used the program we all use to check our games we noticed that 
    MLB 2K9 Had a new pfi and Video A so called 3rd wave.
    
    Here is the 3rd video wave from below
    
    ÂÂÂÂ PFI CRC = 2A4CCBD3
    PFI does not match known data (could be corrupt or a new wave not seen before)
    Displaying suspicious PFI in hex and ascii:
    
    ÂÂÂÂ OFFSETÂÂ 0ÂÂ1ÂÂ2ÂÂ3ÂÂ4ÂÂ5ÂÂ6ÂÂ7ÂÂ8ÂÂ9ÂÂAÂÂBÂÂCÂÂDÂÂEÂÂF
    ÂÂÂÂ 0x0000ÂÂ01 02 31 10 00 03 00 00 00 FC FF DF 00 03 97 5FÂÂÂÂ1 . ...n ¯.ÂÂ_
    ÂÂÂÂ 0x0010ÂÂ00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00ÂÂ................
    ÂÂÂÂ *
    
    
    
    now for those of you that don't know what that means
    
    THIS GAME WILL NOT BOOT ON CURRENT MOD
    
    The only way we could get the game too boot was by rolling back our mod to 1.41 non stealth on a benq

    http://s5.tinypic.com/2mydr9s.jpg
    http://s5.tinypic.com/2z4wbgx.jpg
    
    Not too much can be done about this untill we see another new game to see if this is the new way or what
    there is question if they fucked up and its just mlb 2k9 like this..
    
    no one knows
    no one can know untill another new game surfaces.
    
    We've sectioned off the area in question with special lines in the saved output below.
    
    GROUPS PLEASE PAY ATTENTION WHEN RIPPING NEW 360 GAMES
    
    THE RIPPING APPS WE USE MIGHT NEED TO BE RE WRITEN TO ALLOW FOR THIS CHANGE..
    
    ITS ALL BEING LOOKED INTO
    
    This Release is pre'd As-Is
    
    IT WILL NOT BOOT ON IX1.5
    
    I pred this cause i know the fw team will be getting a new mod and then ppl will want it.
    
    I have notified teamstealth about this before preing and it it's per their request
    
    We need this info out.

    It doesn't have to be broken, they just have to change some checks in the FW, so it doesn't think this is a bad rip.

    Interesting turn of events.

    In related news [stream of four lettered words]; why did I have to set myself up as someone who can flash 360 drives.

    Don't know why they bother. It'll get fixed in a few days. Wonder if all games will be like this from now?, will be interesting to see the panic if re5 is the same.

    Please, PLEASE.... Don't do this shit to Resident Evil 5. I don't really care about any other game, just don't fuck me over with Resident Evil 5! :< Especially since I can't/don't know how to flash my 360... so if anew firmware is released to avoid these games, I won't be able to update.

    Really nowadays theres no harm in reverting back to an old non stealth extreme if you run your releases through abgx first.

    Oh and aparently HAWX also has this new 3rd wave video partition too. *Dont fuck us over by doing this on RE5*

    I read that this is not a security measure. 360 games are being released with the nxe update on them now and the video partition is the only place they could fit it. I don't know if that is true. But, all we have to do is wait for iX 1.6 which shouldn't be long.

    I'm still on the old xtreme 5.3 on my samsung, so I'll be fine (don't use live). Wouldn't recommend it if you use live though, even if you run through abgx first. There's been other adjustments made to the firmware, not just blocking non-stealth games, something to do with jitter was changed (no idea what for), also only ix1.4 and up take care of the ss angle >359 thing, older firmwares don't and return an invalid one.

    Simple,

    I don't like basebal games [​IMG]
    No need to reflash my samsung drive ATM and we'll see what the future will bring for this new thing.
    I'll wait for iExtreme 1.6 (or whatever number it's gonna be)

    Still waiting for the 1.5 iExteme for Hitatchi drives to. (wonder where that one is???)

    Gosh, now I'm really nervous... I hope the popular games don't get this third wave.... especially RE5.

    Hitachi iXtreme 1.5 (including 3rd Wave fix) is scheduled to be released this or next week aswell as iXtreme 1.6 for all other drives. C4 said this on IRC.

    CODE[08:48pm] [+c4eva] new video partition support in ix1.6 , coming soon!

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    c4eva: is it hard to fix this problem?
    no
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    new games are coming out with the nxe update on the disc
    and the only place microsoft could put it was in the video partition
    now, old firmwares and games didnt always have a video partition, so when ixtreme was made, they got it to check the video partition
    and if its crc didnt match wave 1 or wave 2, then the game wouldnt boot
    now, this is wave 3, so ixtreme wont boot new games
    if you need to boot the game, then flash to xtreme or non-stealth firmware
    or wait for 1.6

    Here's what I picked up from my sources.

    Yeah, that's right. It shouldn't be that hard to fix this, since it's not even or protection.
