The following guide assumes you have updated to the new XGD3 dashboard 2.0.13146.0 (or newer) - Your Liteon DG-16D2S will have been updated to a new firmware - 02510C (so it is now no longer classed as a 74850C, 83850C or 93450C - but a Liteon DG-16D2S 02510C). The guide also assumes that you have your drive key saved from a previous firmware update - DUMMY.BIN or Original Firmware Dump (OFW).


To make sure that your system has been updated simply goto the System Info tab and check the dashboard version. It should say 2.0.13146.0. If it doesn't then you have not updated your console yet so this guide is not applicable to you (until you update)



TIP



With X360USB PRO you don't need CK3 Pro drivers, you don't have to use any COM ports (if you don't want the "no Com Ports" message showing up when you boot Jungle Flasher then simply save and run this reg file) and you don't have to have any PortIO stuff installed so no F8 or Driver signing disabled or any of that crap any more (simply tick the USB Only button and all the PortIO stuff gets disabled / ignored) - just ignore all that as it's the old way of doing things - X360USB PRO takes care of ALL of it.




The following tutorial will take you through the simple process of communicating with a Liteon DG-16D2S DVD Drive using Jungle Flasher and an X360USB PRO adapter. It doesn't matter what firmware you have on your drive - this method will work regardless.

Requirements:

  • Xecuter X360USB Pro
  • Xecuter CK3 Pro or Xecuter CK3 Lite to power/control the DVD drive
  • Xecuter CK3 Probe 3 (To extract your DVD Key)
  • Latest version of Jungle Flasher (Must be v0.1.84 (250) and above)
  • Latest version of X360USB PRO firmware (must be at least v18)
  • X360USB PRO Windows Drivers
  • Windows XP / Vista / 7 - 32bit or 64bit
  • MAC OSX (Using Parallels, Bootcamp or VMWare)
There are originally four versions of the Liteon DG-16D2S, 74850C, 83850C(v1), 83850C(v2) & 93450C, however if you have updated to the new XGD3 dashboard, all Liteons were updated to the one single version - 02510C.
To find out which version of Liteon drive you have simply look at the label and you will see "FW Ver.: XXXXXC" - Naturally if you have updated to the new dashboard, this version number is now irrelevant but we show it to you as a guide.

Warning

AUX Power Cable

The X360USB PRO comes with an AUX Power cable. This is NOT to be used unless it is required. Your X360USB PRO will function with no problems on 99% of USB ports as they have a 500ma output. A tiny amount of USB ports only carry 100ma. The AUX Power is supplied as a worst case scenario for those instances (you would plug it into a USB capable power supply unit such as the iPod's power brick). DO NOT use the AUX Power cable if your computer supports 500ma as you may cause damage to your X360USB PRO. The best way to test is it just set everything up to see if drivers install, jungle flasher detects the drive etc.


Here is an example of the Liteon DG-16D2S DVD label. As you can see we have highlighted the F/W version - in this case it is the 74850C (When referencing the drives the letter C is rarely mentioned as it doesn't have any relevance so don't worry if you simply see "74850". Naturally the version on the label is no longer relevant if you have updated to the new dashboard - all Liteon DG-16D2S are now 02510C.




Before you connect everything you first need to install the X360USB Pro Drivers. These are signed and work in Windows XP / Vista / 7 both 32bit and 64bit. Download the small driverpack and plug in the X360USB PRO USB Cable. When it asks for the drivers simply point to the files you saved and they will install with ease. You are now ready to hook everything else up.

Let's get everything hooked up. First, simply connect the DVD power supply (in this case the Xecuter CK3 Pro) to the DVD drive (take care to make sure it is fitted the correct way - the wrong way can damage your drive - the green wires on the power cable show it to be the correct way up - red is the wrong way. Connect the molex power cable from your PC or from an external Molex power supply to the CK3 Pro/Lite. Connect the SATA cable from the DVD drive to the X360USB Pro, and then connect the USB cable from the X360USB Pro to a USB port on your Netbook/Notebook/Laptop/Desktop computer. All these connections are illustrated in the diagrams below.




OK we are ready to begin:

1. We are assuming that you have a saved Dummy.bin from a previous firmware upgrade (You may have used the MRA hack and have a full firmware dump - that can be used too. Most people have the dummy.bin so we will use that for this example). Load Jungle Flasher and first click on the FirmwareTool 32 tab and then click the Open Source Firmware button.

Note: If you do not have your Dummy.bin file then you need to use a CK3 Probe 3 to extract your DVD key - follow this guide



2. Now load the Dummy.bin file. Navigate to where the file is saved, select it and click open.



3. You will be asked if you want to auto-load Liteon iXtreme

If the Dummy.bin is from before the dashboard update - click No
If the Dummy.bin is from after the dashboard update - click Yes



4. The following part of the guide is solely to show 3rd party tools working with the X360USB PRO. You must own any game that you backup and we do not condone any kind of piracy and this is purely for educational purposes only. We do not provide any of the LT Plus firmware files and they are not provided or included with Jungle Flasher so do not ask for them.

If your Dummy.bin was from before the dashboard update the simply click Open Target Firmware and load LTPlus-025v1.9.bin then click Spoof Source to Target

Everything is now loaded into Jungle Flasher and you are ready to go. Lets explain whats happening on the screen at the moment.

(1) The source buffer is loaded with the information extracted from your Liteon drive.
(2) This is your DVD key - always keep this safe !
(3) This is the iXtreme LT Plus firmware auto loaded into the target buffer

Note: Serial and ID Info are not used with the new LT+ v1.9 as it is generic across all 02510C drives, so do not be alarmed if you see any messages that these values have not been copied or used.



5. Now you are ready to program your drive.

(1) Select the MTK Flash 32 tab
(2) Click the Lite-On Erase button



6. You will get a pop-up warning you to be 100% sure that you have your DVD Key. If you are sure click YES



7. Another pop-up explaining that the drive will be erased and when it sends an intro to the drive to kick it into vendor mode. If you are ready click YES



8. You need to power cycle the drive (turn the CK3 Pro power switch OFF then ON) when the drive status displays as 0x90. Your drive will then switch to vendor mode ( 0x72 ) and you are ready to write data to the drive. To program the firmware click the Write button.



9. After writing, Jungle Flasher also reads and verifies every sector to make sure that the drive programmed correctly. Once everything is completed it will say "Write Verified OK!"



10. Success ! You can now click the Outro / ATA Reset button to take the drive out of vendor mode :)
