I just updated my dvd from LT Plus 2.0 to LT Plus 3.0 in less than 3 minutes without opening the console and that includes the time to download the software
You just need to download the software from their website, unzip it, connect the pc to the usb programmer and press the "write ixtreme" button. That's all, no messing with sata ports, jungle flasher, opening the console and all all that other stuff.
Guess I just wasted 4 hr of my life, as I got to reinstall my original board now, but my wires are too short!!
Why would you need to reinstall the original board at all to update the firmware?!?
You only need the original board the first time to extract the key and the other data related to your drive (and even in that case you don't really need to connect it to the dvd drive, you can just use the pcb by itself). Affter that you don't ever need to touch it again.
