My eject button is broke or stuck or something. Is their an app I can use to open and close the drive like in uleash x?

you can stick a paper clip into a little hole in the front and it should eject.

If you need to do it a lot, you could probably do the power switch on the controller thing (see tuts) and attatch the yellow wire to the eject instead of the power.

In xbins, there are two little apps you can download. On will eject and one will load the tray. I added them to my evox dashboard by editing the .ini file, so now I can eject the tray without the button.

I second the force opening.. It won't damage your drive if done right.. The eject/load xbe's might get annoying since you will need to reload your dash each time you need to deal with the dvd..
Actually, no reason not to use both methods
