Maximus - FIRMWARE TOOLBOX V4.0
Posted by Iriez | July 10 02:03 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
A new software flasher for the xbox360 dvd-rom, Hitachi-LG GDR-3120 ..

The credit on ixtreme firmware is for Commodore4eva, I only ported to 360 Firmware Toolbox(info)(info) to support all variants of 78/79 drives (and upper).

SPECIAL NOTE ON FLASHING HITACHI 79FK DRIVES:
Sorry for the confusion that the "79 flashing" video have caused, that video was uploaded by one no-more-beta-tester without my permision. I wake up this morning flooded by tons of emails for congratulations and I feel the need to clarify the situation.

It is possible to flash by software the 79 drives but needs the previous installation of a physical device (as the one proposed by team xecuter).

Hardware devices will be needed until a better solution arrives (our research never stop). Me and some friends have developed also a small device to allow the flashing, the info can be accesed here: v79 FlashKey

New in 4.0:
- Added: Smart Hack Patcher now implements ixtreme 1.2 (thanks to c4e)
- Added: Now Supports 100% BENQ Firmwares (spoof, key changing, etc)
- Added: Option to Restore Original Firmwares based on any dump you have
- Corrected: Several other bugs
- Added: OCX's included on the release (there are available on Microsoft site anyway)



Note, this does NOT mean that you can dump and flash benq firmwares with fw toolbox. It simply supports reading the firmware and spoofing it.

Has any one tried flashing BenQ yet?

I haven't come across a BenQ yet to try it. Also are there much of these drive out there?


Sorry, re read the first post, you cannot dump/flash benq drives with this one, but if you have one (dumped with external programmer) you can open with toolbox and read keys, change them, spoof it, etc

I only have seen 2 boxes here in mexico with benq drives and both of them have manufacturing date of december 2006, I have seen like 15 xbox elite but all of them had 79 drive.

Regards

Thanks alot for this great software! I have one question tho..

How would one go about using the new restore function for <58 versions (its not mentioned in the tutorial.txt or read.me)
Do I have to load my original firmware and then go to the menu: Tools-->Direct Drive Flash-->Differential Flash (RESTORE) or is there a way to restore without loading my original firmware? Like with the bat files?

From the readme file:
- Added: Option to Restore Original Firmwares based on any dump you have

What does 'based on any dump you have' mean?

Thanks Again smile.gif

Got this last night before I went to bed. All my games that pass through Mulleter work great, the one that doesn't will not load, giving me a white screen with the text "please insert game into an Xbox 360 system". So it appears to be working quite well.

Thanks for the effort.

solder/desolder chip on it or
add on chip to allow toolbox to be used such as team Xecuter x79 or maximus passkey.

I just tried v3 of the toolbox the other day, so I have some questions about v4

in vista, I couldnt get the app the recognise the ocx files, no matter where i put them. what am i doing wrong?

in winxp, the app stalled every time it tried to send a command to the drive. what am i doing wrong? i used slax to get in modeB and it had a dive letter.

can i use v4 and still have non stealth rips playable or is it stealth or bust?

cheers
