Xecuter X360USB PRO Update

It's been a very busy week of testing with the recently announced X360USB PRO device. We can confirm that various members of the scene including Team Jungle have received working samples to help make this the ultimate affordable hardware aid for 360 DVD Firmware from beginners right through to advanced users. Team Jungle reported to us this morning that they absolutely love the device and are 100% committed to fully supporting it. As Jungle Flasher is the most advanced, secure and feature rich 360 Firmware Tool available we are also committed to enhancing the features of the X360 USB PRO to make sure that every eventuality is covered. There is still a very nice part of the hardware that we have not disclosed that will truly make it a true multi-function device, but what we have added this week is the ability to upgrade its firmware for future expansion and further enhancement with Jungle Flasher. Oh, did we forget to mention that amongst the new goodies the X360 USB PRO can do, it can dump the 360 Slim 9504 DVD fw and key ? 😉 Here is the latest scan of the X360 USB PRO device. In the immortal words of Michael Jackson we're "Working Day and Night" so much more to come……… There are few case designs that we are debating. here's the the favorite so...

Xecuter X360USB PRO – Benq Video Demo

Here is a nice demo video of the X360USB Pro in action with a BENQ VAD6038 It's a little crude and all the commands are DOS based but this is from a few weeks ago – it's come a long way since then http://www.team-xecuter.com/x360usbpro/benq/ FYI We have designed stand alone flashers in the past but it simply cannot handle the many variables that are involved in flashing/repairing drives. We believe that the most powerful app available is Jungle Flasher and the only way to make things easier and more cost effective for the end user is to have a very simple and straight forward connection point between the PC and the DVD drive – enabling you to be able to attack every single scenario of which experience shows there are hundreds of variations. You should be able to just plug in to USB – connect to Jungle Flasher and away you go. No messing about with SATA versions, or different drivers or having to worry about which version of Windows you were using or if you had to deal with some fancy tricks, not just to flash your drive, but to repair it, recover data from it or any other number or scenarios of which only Jungle Flasher could achieve. A plus point for wholesalers and retailers is that this is 100% legal with the DMCA and EUCD…. Many more updates and many more products coming soon. Currently up to our eyes in ARM...

abgx360 v1.0.4

With the release of C4E's iXtreme LT+ for LiteOn and BenQ drives with 'anti'-AP2.5 the guys over at abgx360 also released a new version of their software. What's new/fixed: * AntiPiracy 2.5 (AP25) replay sector for iXtreme LT+ firmware is checked for when a game has the AP25 system flag in the Xex set or when its media ID matches a list updatable through abgx360.dat (Fable III is the only game so far that uses AP25 but does not have the AP25 system flag set) * AP25 replay data is Verified/AutoFixed according to your settings, albeit separately from the normal INI based Verify/AutoFix, so make sure to read the entire abgx360 output * Video padding size changed to support the new AP25 replay sector using a variable which is updatable through abgx360.dat in case additional stealth sectors are needed so that the video padding check will not blank them out * Removed short explanations of ISO filesizes (unnecessary, hard to keep updated and misleading in terms of SplitVid; just because an ISO has the space for SplitVid doesn't mean it has valid SplitVid data in that space) * gzip compression is now supported when abgx360 downloads certain files * miscellaneous small changes * Note: The GUI has not been changed and will still display version 1.0.2, don't worry about it as long as the CLI app displays v1.0.4 Official Site: http://abgx360.net Download:...

XECUTER X360 USB PRO !

What a busy day it's been for the scene We have been working very hard on a number of products these last few months, one in particular that we have been very excited about. You may have read our news the other day that one of of our more popular products had been copied in China. We hear today that another group are releasing a product whose vague description sounded strinkingly similar to ours. As this is a cat and mouse business these days we figured that we'd let this particular cat out of the bag and give you a sneak peak at one of the big products we have been working on these last couple of months. The Xecuter X360 USB PRO – The World's first ALL 360 DVD to USB Adapter ! As part of the team who are extensively involved in the programming of DVD firmware, we have been able to develop the most stable and solid 360 DVD to USB converter that you could ever possibly wish for. Gone are the days of Sata cards and disabling VIA drivers and messing around with x64 issues. Simply plug in your drive to your USB port and go.  Supports all Hitachi, Samsung, Benq & Liteon DVD Drives ! Finally this is now open to all from beginners to hard core enthusiasts. The prototypes we have been working with are obviously very roughly made – but we are about a week or so away from a final test prototype and production should begin soon. There will also be custom software which is also in development. Watch this space Here is a snapshot of the current...

Official Release of iXtreme LT+ (Benq & Liteon)

Here you go folks http://bit.ly/fRMpXK Official release of C4E's iXtreme LT+ – Supports Benq and Liteon Drives (74850, 83850V1, 83850V2, 93450) – Optimized PFI code to accommodate AP25 SS data – Defeats current AP25 protection – Protects console from logging AP25 violation – Full disc stealth used by default – Waveless booting, disc images are assumed to be correct! – Split-Vid used as default If booting an AP25 title without AP25 SS game will not boot but will still be protected from logging AP25 violation on current dash 2.0.12611.0 If LT+ encounters an unknown AP25 challenge, game will not boot but console will still be protected from logging AP25 violation on current dash 2.0.12611.0 AP25 SS are region specific for region locked games (Current Example NFS: Hot Pursuit is both PAL and NTSC – 2 different AP25 Patches) If you boot the AP25 titles without LT+ you will probably be flagged for a ban. You cannot spoof a different model drive as that can now be detected. With this release of LT+ you HAVE to have an original Benq or Liteon. LT+ for slim 9504 is next followed by LT+ for slim 0225 Thanks go to Team Jungle for their hard work and efforts in the development process.

XM360 v2.0d

Node21 (Team XeDev) now released XM360 v2.0d to the public, a tool running on homebrew 360s that will allow to organize, scan and unlock XBLA and DLC content. What's new/fixed (since last public rls – v2.0a): * Fixed Server crashing on DLC update (missing data in the marketplace) * Added Custom FTP command "FREE" which will dump the size/used/free for each mounted device * Added status line information when remote ftp clients are connected, and transferring * Found and fixed big bug in xm360server that was preventing all DLC from being recognized. * Unfortunately, this means that entering the DLC scene in xm360 now takes up to 10 full seconds to process the data. * Some status messages have moved to a message box (since they disappeared in 2.0b) * Fixed issue which was causing the xbla_excludes.csv file to not always be written * Fixed seemingly never ending message boxes that I broke in 2.0c * Changed format of XBLA and DLC reports to include Utf8, and proper quoting Official Site: By node21 of http://xedev.xbins.org/ Download: n/a (built with...

SMC Utility v1.1

Blackaddr released a new version of SMC Utility: This is a general purpose SMC utility designed to replace the old SMC I/O Config Utility. The program itself is a patching engine, where the patches are written as scripts in the INI file. This will allow any future patches to be released as scripts instead of re-releasing the program itself. This allows you to build a hacked SMC from your original, unhacked version. Included is an All-In-One patch that provides a uniform exploit code base between several SMC versions, and applies a patch that improves the support for Play'N'Charge cables. It eliminates the 'reboot' problem while shutting down with a controller charging. Optional patches are included that allow you force the console to power down instead of charging if you do not wish to leave the console charging unattended. You can also patch it to restore the original unconditional booting. An analysis mode allows quick diagnostics of the SMC using the new code base to check the JTAG I/O configuration, bug status, status of other patches, etc. What's new/fixed: INI v1.1 Arrived -> Updates to AIO patch, GUIDE button and HDD swaps now boot correctly! Posted Version 1.1. All boot modes now work properly with PlayNCharge. No known issues. Thanks to Cory1492. Official Site: n/a, by Blackaddr Download (v1.1): here News-Source:...

Xecuter CK3 Pro – Fake Copies Warning

It has come to our attention that a small factory in China is making cheap, low quality copies of the hugely popular CK3 Pro 360 DVD Rom connectivity kit. They do say that imitation is the highest form of flattery, however these came through our retail channels due to a high number of faulty returns and there were attempts at having them replaced on the official Xecuter Warranty. Not only are they poor quality, but they are wholesaling them for the same cost at what we are wholesaling the genuine products to our wholesale network, so it's pointless buying them in the first place. If you are looking to buy genuine Xecuter products through wholesale channels then simply contact Supreme Factory or China Distribution and they will take care of you. If you are looking for genuine Xecuter retailers then they are listed on our Official Resellers Page. Remember that when you buy fake copies, even though you are paying the same price as the genuine product you will get no support, and no warranty. If you have bought a fake CK3 Pro or have any questions please use this thread on our forums. Here are some comparison photographs to see if you have a fake or genuine CK3...

SMC Utility v1.0a *Update v1.0b*

Blackaddr released SMC Utility v1.0 on xboxhacker.org: This is a general purpose SMC utility designed to replace the old SMC I/O Config Utility. The program itself is a patching engine, where the patches are written as scripts in the INI file. This will allow any future patches to be released as scripts instead of re-releasing the program itself. This allows you to build a hacked SMC from your original, unhacked version. Included is an All-In-One patch that provides a uniform exploit code base between several SMC versions, and applies a patch that improves the support for Play'N'Charge cables. It eliminates the 'reboot' problem while shutting down with a controller charging. Optional patches are included that allow you force the console to power down instead of charging if you do not wish to leave the console charging unattended. You can also patch it to restore the original unconditional booting. An analysis mode allows quick diagnostics of the SMC using the new code base to check the JTAG I/O configuration, bug status, status of other patches, etc. The readme contains directions for a simple two-step process to build a working SMC from your original. You can ignore all the advanced modes if using command-line utilities makes you crap your pants. AIO Known Issues: – while charging a battery in standby mode, the console will not boot properly using the controller GUIDE button. Pwr/Eject work fine. – If you insert/remove the hard drive while the console is up and running, it will hang. Press the pwr twice to reboot. The main advantage of using this program is to regain some Play'N'Charge functionality. This program is for JTAG EXPLOITABLE consoles only. *EDIT v1.0a* Link up dated, the original link used ARGON_DATA in AIO patch, now uses AUD_CLAMP as readme states. *EDIT* *EDIT v1.0b* Link updated to smc_utilty_v1.0b. Someone found a missing NOP in...
