there are a couple of 78 drives, and maybe 79's as well who knows where the ap2.5 starts, when people have been confirming it on and others off of different drives

I have Hitachi 79 drive modded with Hitachi 1.51. Haven't played with my xbox360 for a long time, so might just as well test this.

I just read about ap2.5 for the first time so this might be a stupid question, but what do I need to do in order to confirm if the ap2.5 checks are there with my hitachi 79 drive? Note: I don't want to go online with the console.

Unfortunately I don't have Fable 3 at the moment so I can't confirm this yet.

But I did find this (in spanish though):

So it seems the ap2.5 checks are not there with hitachi79, if that guy is to be believed.

I have an Elite with a Hitachi 79FL patched with ixtreme 1.51. So far it's working with the Fall 2010 Kinect updated dashboard and Fable 3. I'm not sure if the Marvel release is different from retail, but it loaded right up.
I don't use live with it so I'm not sure about being banned.

Very interesting, so I guess c4eva was either wrong and no Hitachi supports AP2.5 or Microsoft has chosen not to enable it on any Hitachi type drive. Either way this is really good news for anyone with a sammy or a hitachi.

Thanks, I was about to ask the same question - nice to have it answered already wink.gif
Going to get a 4GB 360 Slim and mod my current Elite I think (which has the 79FL drive) and use it as a completely offline console, so good to know.

Just tried my console, its a 78 but further confirms no problems so far with it.

Xbox Premium, Banned Fall 2010. Offline Gaming only (obviously)
Hitachi 78 Drive with ixtreme 1.51 (i think, its been a while)
Updated to latest dash from usb (downloaded from xbox.com)
playing Assassins Creed Brotherhood fine, dont have Fable 3 to test but i believe this title is also AP 2.5

Hope this helps people

My XVal reports Console Banned
