New Jungle Flasher, New Firmware, New SPUTNIK Unlock

A busy week ! We have collected all of the bug reports surrounding the last release of Jungle Flasher and they have all now been fixed and are in testing as we speak. New versions of the 0272 firmware have also been found and this will address the issues some of you are having with Open DVD / Play DVD errors. be patient. The new AP2.5 challenges have been captured and there are differences which we can work with. Expect news soon. SPUTNIK360 Thanks to some Russian guys, there has been a trace cut / solder backdoor hack discovered for unlocking the SPI status of DG-16D4S MXIC chipsets – kudos to those guys and thanks for opening some previously unseen doors. Unfortunatley most of the drives are Winbond, but this is a great platform to start from. Naturally we will move this to the next level and have branded this the SPUTNIK360 hack in honor of our Russian colleagues. We are currently working on the more "in the wild" Winbond version with a number of well known associates. The latest Jungle Flasher (with the bug fixes) also includes full support for SPUTNIK360 SPI LOCK / UNLOCK hack together with the X360USB PRO, so there will be no need for extra 3rd party software and you can be assured of full compatibility with the quality that you have come to expect from Team Xecuter and Team Jungle.

XeLL Updater v1.2

Tuxuser released a new version of his homebrew application that will allow you to easily update just the XeLL part of your freeBOOT NAND. It'd been updated following fbBuild v0.32's release, and adds support for the 13599 kernel: XeLL Updater for freeBOOT – v1.2 for Kernel 9199, 12611, 12625, 13146 and 13599 Based on dashlaunch installer by cOz This little tool is needed to update XeLL in Flash/NAND properly. The freeBOOT/fbBuild Rebooter has a different layout compared to XBR or pure-XeLL images so the XeLL binary isn't at the beginning of a NAND Block anymore. Using the old updslot0/updslot1-Method (which worked on XBR and XeLL Images just fine) you would render your freeBOOT console non-booting (until you reflash it externally of course). This application however works for freeBOOT/fbBuild It reads the specific part of the NAND, injects the XeLL binary and writes the blocks back. Use it on Single-NAND freeBOOT only (9199, 12611, 12625, 13146 and 13599). Official Site: http://libxenon.org Download: n/a (built with XDK) News-Source:...

fbBuild v0.32

What's new/fixed: * fixed yet another bug in the ini parser (affected lhelper.xex integration) – corrected bad block detection bug on large block dumps (nandmu) * correct mobile dat extraction on small block dumps for big block controllers * corrected wording (oops!) of ECD option in ini sample file * added option to ini file to try to retain NAND MU data on big block machines * added option to ini file to set which power-on reason starts xell when not using oldvd/nodvd * -v messages are now automatically logged to a file regardless of specifying -v on command line * core and ini updated to allow specifying a power reason to cause dual NAND !SWITCH command * add 13599 Official Site: n/a (anonymous) Download: n/a (might be illegal under DMCA/EUCD) News-Source:...

Maximus Lizard360: Gecko v1.14

Some of you may be doing a double take and wondering why we have Maximus news here at Xecuter Well regardless of what the squadrons of fanboys think, Max and I actually do work together from time to time and there isn't any problems between the teams – other than the odd sly dig in advertising but thats just business marketing Anyway, they have released a new version of  Gecko 1.14 and it includes full support for the Xecuter DG-16D4S Unlocked PCB and also PCB's that have had the Pro Install kits fitted. So here is a full plug just for you – don't expect it too often lol 😉 Have been a long day but finally we can approve Gecko 1.14 to public release. Since this is a Major Update we encourage you to update all the following: a) Gecko 1.14 on your lizard (both application and flash) b) Get Toolbox 1.30 from our download page c) Get Latest Filesets from the Fileset Blog d) Get Latest SD Card files (for standalone) from the Fileset Blog We have implemented support for flashing the T-X pcbs but you can also use any unlocked SPI board to flash your custom firmware. We also have incorporated a Lock/Unlock option but currently works only on boards with switch (T-X boards at this moment). As we anticipate if you already have a 0225 dummy file there YOU NEED REDUMP with this gecko 1.14, if you dont do that your drive hack will not likely work. There is a reported bug about 0272 LTPlus 1.9 not replying back the proper real time checks, as soon as c4e fixes it we will just update the Filesets and SD card files, but meanwhile we have what is available. Another important recommendation is to update the console Dashboard to latest 13599 before proceeding with custom hack. Be...

C4E's iXtreme Slim LT+ 1.9 FULL Firmware Pack Released !

Perfect timing 😉 C4E's iXtreme Slim LT+ 1.9 in association with Team Jungle & Team Xecuter —————————————————————————————— World first backups for XBOX 360 Slim, no need for expensive emulators, flash fw for free! – For all Liteon Drive models (0272 – which is an updated 9504, 0225 & 0401) – Support for XGD3 originals – Optimised rootkit code, ALL timings for realtime checks are same as original firmware We have also included all the original firmwares (OFW) – as you can see there are 2 different version 0225's too. There is a new kind of calibration data at 1FF80 that is different in 2 occurances (so far) so if you get a PLAY DVD error then you need to redump your original with the new upcoming JF and let that do its magic for you. FYI The other variation is the factory updated version, and this difference at 1FF80 was only discovered in the last week so bear with us as there may be more variations out there. You know if you have a factory upgraded version if the label says 9504 but the fw is 0225 Included OFW files explained: 1. Orig-0272.bin – 0272 (Retail 9504 flashed to new dash over XBL) 2. Orig-0225.bin – Retail 0225 3. Orig-0225u.bin – Retail 9504 flashed at factory to 0225u … big differences in sector 1FF00 (calibration data at 1FF80) 4. Orig-0401.bin – Retail 0401 Thanks go to Team Jungle for their hard work and efforts in the development process. Thanks as always go to Team Xecuter for their generous support to this whole project. Special thanks go to Foundmy.com for their help with the 0401 drives and the factory updated 0225 drives...

New 2.0.13599.0 Dash Update FAQ

Today saw a new dashboard update roll out to all boxes. Here is a run down of the changes and what you should be aware of…. 1. We recommend that you DO NOT update on 9504/0272 drives – they lock the spi on the chip (just like we told you they could) 2. If you insist on updating we recommend as always that you revert to stock fw (OFW) or the update might fail or you may get banned 3. If you have a spoofed drive and you update – expect to be banned. We have been telling you not to spoof for over a year now, so tough tits. 4. 9504/0272 drives updated in 0225/0401 Xbox's were NOT locked. Another proof that the unlocked PCB works perfectly and that they dont update drives where the OSIG was a locked drive. 5. The new dash 13599 updates ap2.5 challenges (this was totally expected). update if you want live. stay offline and don't update if you cant wait for new ap2.5 patches 6. The update is NOT just simply to set up some background technology for further improvements later this year. this is being investigated as we speak. Lot's discovered already ! 7. Use your original AP2.5 games! Abgx will be updated eventually! (there are still the original 6 AP2.5 games – no new ones...

FreeStyle Dash Update…

From teamfsd.com: Good Day, I am posting this to let everyone know where things stand and to clear things up a little bit FSD is being worked on actively and we are really putting a lot of work into this version. We hope you will all like it and there will be a lot of changes. Now i also want to say we do this in our spare time and we do it cause we like to do it. I am sorry you don't think we update you enough or we don't release enough but really we do the best we can. We all have jobs to pay the bills and families we enjoy spending time with. It's summer so we are enjoying vacations and the weather. This does not mean we aren't working on FSD but it DOES mean that things slow down a bit. So with that being said we will release information when it becomes relevant and we will release Versions when they become stable. If that is not quick enough or soon enough that's too bad for you. SO with all that being said here is an update for you. We will likely NOT be posting another update thread soon as it won't mean anything to you when i say "Fixed crash in General Settings Screen: cause on your version there isn't one. So we are working on it and we are going to get it out as soon as we can. ********* WE DO NOT PLAN ON DOING A RELEASE THIS SUMMER ************* Official Site:...
