not strictly true , this is from toolbox 4.5 nfo............

"Direct Dump and Direct Flash over all versions of GDR3120L drives
even the 0078 FK drives. For 79 FK you will need aditional device
attached to the drive."

I can confirm toolbox can only be used to flash 78 and 79 drives and like other postered stated yes 79 also need passkey to be able to mod it for all 46 47 and 59 use the bat files with ixtreme. toolbox can also be used for spoofing and getting keys from firmwares adding new keys. Has many uses but as far as flashing its for 78 and 79 only.

antz1970 is right

Toolbox can be used to DUMP AND FLASH ALL HITACHI dvd-rom versions!!!!!

The difference is, that the hitachi v78 and v79 can ONLY be dumped and flashed with toolbox where the <78 versions can be dumped and flashed with the batch files.

any other info is incorrect, i've used both methods on different drives (47, 59, 78) and both work fine

I have a 46d hitachi and I used iXtreme 1.2 and it doesn't read backups worth crap. Befoer, this firmware I had the latest Garyopa Xtreme or whaterer and it read backups way better. I even have verbatim discs using schrom xtracter v3.3. Would it make a difference to reflash my drive using the Maximus toolbox v4.5? Will it make my backups read better or is it the version of my drive? My brother has v78 drive and used toolbox to flash (isn't the v4.5 toolbox essentially the same as iXtreme 1.2 when it flashes?) and his reades backups really fast as it they are retail games, never an "unplayable disc" or a "open tray". I am thinking about buying a 78 drive like my brother and flashing just like his since I know his works well. What do you think?
