Team Jungle Tweets About The iXtreme LT Firmware
Posted by XanTium | November 23 16:05 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
From team-xecuter.com:


Team Jungle have been updating their Twitter Page regarding development of the forthcoming iXtreme LT firmware from C4E. Looks like they are having a great time with it, kinda reminds us of XB1 BIOS development in the old days :)

Here are some direct quotes - you can read the full posts on their Twitter Page - some interesting points, particularly regarding SplitVid.
* Lots of performance data put into fw!
* Note: backups need to have SplitVid from now on to be safe for LT
* LT is not only Lite Touch, lots of great new code making this version the most accurate fw eva! :)
* new code looking good, lots of new code!
* iXtreme LT for all drives, in dev/testing and going well. No ETA!

I can't wait for people to be banned because some guy said the firmware is undetectable like most of the previous firmwares.

^^ people like this shouldn't even read this if they are gonig to bitch. It'slike you installing nos in your car buy you sure the manufacturer when you destroy something? No one is making anyone use his firmware we all know the risks.

Just glad everything is going great! biggrin.gif

Well everyone makes mistakes. Look at it this way, most people probably pirated thousands of dollars in games, so whats the hurt of making them buy a new console every 6 months.

QUOTE
If you put an Xbox 360 disc in a normal DVD video player you will see a screen that says, "To play this disc, put it in an Xbox 360 console." This happens because there's a DVD video partition on the disc which is split over both layers on original discs. On normal backups the video partition is all on layer 0, and hacked firmwares are supposed to redirect reads to the layer 1 video back to layer 0. However, it was discovered that some hacked firmware versions prior to the release of iXtreme were not doing this properly, and if the Xbox 360 host tried to read the entire video partition, the second part of it would be blank because the firmware started reading from layer 1 instead of continuing to read from layer 0 like it was supposed to. One solution to this problem was called SplitVid, and it works by appending the layer 1 video to the end of an iso (padded up to the proper position based on PFI) so that when these buggy firmwares start reading from layer 1 they will actually read the layer 1 video instead of blank data. The better solution is to simply upgrade your firmware to the latest iXtreme version because these old firmwares have even more security holes, even if you have a perfectly stealthed disc. iXtreme versions prior to v1.4 also have a bug in disc jitter (see 'Is there such a thing as a "bad kreon rip"?' for more on this). If you still want to add SplitVid (or even if you want to remove it) you can select your preference in the Misc tab. The default behavior is to not check for it and just leave it the way it is, because if you're using iXtreme firmware it doesn't matter if a backup has SplitVid or not; data past the game partition will not be readable by the Xbox 360 host.


Does that mean we have to reburn all our discs?

you're a moron...why even come to a modding community if you're just gona be a hater? when was it ever said that it will NEVER be detectable? do you have any idea how any of this works? of course eventually microsoft will find a way to detect this firmware..it's always going to be a cat and mouse game...stay out of the kitchen if you can't take the heat

If you haven't included SplitVid, my assumption to that would be "yes" as the new firmware requires it for safety reasons.

So does this mean ixtreme didnt spoof splitvid as it should? Or LT doesnt spoof at all, so it requires splitvid?

Ahhh crap, had my original Halo 3 disk get stepped on and have been playing the backup. That sucks.
