    LT+ 3.0 releases as scheduled, your the man c4eva. Merry xmas :)

    I hope M$ just simply give up, since your obviously smarter than they (all of them) are.

    I have a question though.

    You said "Activation of ap25 on older non-ap25 games although technically possible is highly unlikely."

    Okay, so if M$ started doing this, which would be a desperate attempt to blacklist more consoles, we would have to start getting topology data for all games, for xbl safty.

    Anyway, my question.

    With a LT 3.0 flashed drive, would I be able to boot a non AP25 title which I ripped with topology data then burned.

    The reason I ask, is because if this would work, then we should just rip ALL games with topology data ap25 or no.

    Even though this all happened and lt3 has came out, I feel like M$ has something smarter planned, as in they knew they can't stop people from keep hacking their system (c4eva's team). Because if this last update was their final plan then M$ would have release a ban wave before christmas so everyone would buy a new Xbox. I feel like they are going to hit another sort of ninja update really soon (M$ can see what c4eva post too, not just us so they know more about what c4eva does more than we do) and set a ban wave when really need it. This is all just assuming and C4eva and your team you all are doing a great job but consumers of his products be aware and listen to stay as safe as possible from getting banned. Merry Christmas Everyone! (Donations help motivation)

    • avatar eltexmexalex says:

      They can't ban anymore not this late. If original games get flagged too we all get banned. No way M$ will risk that! Weak lasers do exist and that makes it fail to read topology data and it will be the same as if the topolagy data is missing from backup.

    Hi all,

    I have older dashboard, xbox connected to net, without Live subscription. So maybe the dae.bin was updated, but I newer played XGD3 on my box. With the new 3.0 firmware I am in safe, even with updated dae.bin?

    Should I flash back my drive to original firmware, then to 3.0?

    I have a question is there any difference patching an ISO with rrods ppf files or the .bin topology with backup creator?

    Reply | Reply with Quote
    • avatar admin says:

      There's no difference. The RRoD patches were made from ISOs which were patched with the same median.bin that was released. Either way, you end up with the same result.

  14. avatar John..... says:

    Thanks a ton c4eva, not much left that M$ can do now.

    I have a quick question, Since Samsung does not have AP25, would the topology rips work on Samsung drives flashed with LT+ 2.01, (also the non AP25 Hitachi drives)?

    I'm thinking yes, since the AP25 sector is missing, but not needed, topology data is in its place, but not needed also, so putting 2 and 2 together, I assume it could work, is this true?

    I dont understand why c4eva doesnt like Hitachi, i´m playing online with all xgd3 titles and not a single problem. No Topology ore other ap25 stuff needed, i even added extra fans to my precious xbox so it would last at least 5 more years :) So all of you who have problems ore dont want to wait, buy old xbox with Hitachi ore Samsung drive and start playing online :P

    If i am understanding correctly we only have to reburn AP25 games with the new lt 3 firmware. For NON AP25 games we can use our previous burned discs Am I right ??

    Thank you C4eva! Merry christmas!

    I see alot of the same questions but different versions on here. I know they will never stop but I thought I'd clear things up a bit since I followed directions and everything is working on my end.

    1. All previously burned XGD3 / AP 2.5 XGD2 backups are garbage. If you want to still use them, expect being flagged.
    2. Patch ISO backups with the latest Xbox Backup Creator. Click Image Tools, select Inject under Action, click AP 2.5 sector, select the ISO you're patching, then the patch itself (XGD2 or XGD3). You will know it works when you see "AP25 Sector file injected at LBA sector " etc.
    3. Burn with ImgBurn with Perform OPC checked. Calculate optimal for layer break. Speed 2.4x for MKM-001 and speed 4x for MKM-003 verbatims (It will tell you if you scroll down right side of ImgBurn what type of disk you're using).
    4. Make sure you're using an iHAS burner flashed with Burner Max! Stop being stubborn and buy it. 20 bucks isn't that much.

    That is all.

      done all of that, tried downloading the new AP2.5 data again and redoing it in XBC just to make sure it took, get the message im supposed to get but whenever i try to write from the XBC i get a failed message. So i tried burning in Imageburn just to see if that would work and sure enough i put it in my 360 and get a disc is unsupported error. Flashed back to stock, udpate dash, flashed to 3.0 using x360usb and it will not work!

    I'm getting RROD with XBG3 Games on LT+3.0. Not sure why…
    All XBG2 and original discs work but as soon as I put in an XBG3 disc = RROD.

    My Xbox is a Benq spoofed as a Liteon (Yes I know you're not supposed to spoof on LT but it works!).
    I returned to stock, updated to the newest 699 dash, and flashed to 3.0 = RROD on XBG3s. XBG2s work fine.

    I then swapped out my Benq and put in an original Liteon (not spoofed) and immediately get "Open Tray" error message on the new dash. I've done pot tweaks etc but no joy…. I had yet another spare Liteon and that too didn't work…

    Anyone else having this issue?!

    • avatar Rrainbowsix says:

      Please note that I was able to fix my issue.
      I flashed my Benq as a LT 3.0 Benq without spoofing and it worked!
      Even though a Liteon was the original drive, flashing as a Benq worked.
      Tested with Batman Arkham City XBG3 0800 ISO injected with Topology. Works!

      Great Job C4!!! LT 3.0 works like a charm!!!!
      Can't wait for Slim 3.0!!!!

I have flashed to LT+3.0 on both my benq systems, ran the games through the XBC, injected the correct files thorugh it where it even says it did it and operation completed and yet when i burn the games i am still getting disc is unsupported! I even had a buddy of mine come over last night who has all of his stuff working correctly and looked over what i was doing/ have done and he couldnt figure out what the problem was?!?

    I have checked the ap25 list and i do not see saints row the third on there? Is it true that this universal topology data file for XGD3 games, can be used for all the games, or just the ones with the ID listed for that file?

    I have originals and also some which were downloads, do i just need to patch the iso's with this topology data file (inject with XBC) and then they will work? I do not connect to live at all, and i have lt 3.0 benQ.

    It is just, that i tried to inject and burn saints row the third iso game with topology data using XBC350, and it came up with ap sector failed? but i still proceeded with burning and it did complete the burn at 100%, as i have burner max installed on iHAS drive, so does it matter that it said failed on the ap sector thing or does that mean that saints row the third game does not require a patch? i though it would as it is quite a new game and has to be an XGD3 protected game?

    Please help, i need to know the ins and outs of all this topology data injecting and which games need it or not? the lists and info out there already is not enough and not clear enough.

      LT+ v2.0: This version adds support for XGD3 backups, including the LT-MAX feature which allows burning XGD3 ISOs on regular DVD+R DL media.

      LT+ v3.0: RELEASED
      This version adds support for topology data in place of AP2.5 replay data for all XGD3 and AP2.5-active XGD2 backups. *NOTE: For drives that support AP2.5, all backups containing AP2.5 replay data will need to be patched or re-dumped and re-burned for compatibility with v3.0.

    can some one please help me, basically i injected black ops with XBC and it worked on my xbox with LT+ 3.0. so when i injected topology data for MW3 and burned it but it doesnt work online it gives me unsupported disc error but i can play it offline but not online.

    black ops works fine online and offline
    MW3 doesnt work online but works offline by deleting the update

    so can you please help me out and tell me what i need to do to play it online?

    and by the way i dont have IHAS drive and i cant burn xgd3 games full, only 97% through IMG BURN. do you think that could be the reason MW3 isnt working?

    @left4dead. truncated discs are no longer compatible with lt3. I have just reripped mw3 and ac3 patched the topology and written with ihas 324 burner. All is good. Online and offline it doesnt matter.

      The firmware is fine. Nothing has changed in going from 2.x to 3.0 as far as the burning process is concerned, so the tutorials don't need to change. The only additional step is patching with the topology data, which is literally a 4-click process and only takes a few seconds. There's no way you burned 100 duds — nobody's that stupid. Do a simple process of elimination to figure out where you're going wrong, or whether it's your setup, hardware, and so on. There are many points where things can go wrong, and easy steps you can take to narrow-down where the problem lies before pointing fingers or whining and saying the fw is garbage.

        I have read alot of post but yours seriously stands out…. first off the firmware for a million other people seem to work except for the few exceptions that seem to not wanna do a fundamental thing which is read… none the less hell watch a fuxking youtube video showing you how to do it there is a trillion… but mostly READ IT IS IN PLAIN FRIGGIN ENGLISH.. how simpler can this process get seriously? First off do you even know how to use a computer cause simply im not understanding if you can flash a drive ,, ihas or a xbox drive how can you not click a few buttons and just like admin said do a process of elimination sheesh 2.4x opc off Smart burn enabled.. online hypertuning enabled… Force hypertuning enabled.. has yet to fail me even with LT 3.0 with disc topology injected… still purring like a kitten when that bitch speed up so i dont know wdf u talking about bro neither with none of you guys thas having all these dumb ass issues … for you people using truncated copies online and is still complaining cry me a f**kin river ok.. this is a free service to the general public and for you to bash a firmware you know nothing about or because of your own blatant ignorance you dont know how to program, either the drive or know how to work on a few settings to get your trillion copies to work .. remember he dont owe you s**t so to bash other peoples work you look like a real sucker trying to use it…

    Liton iHAS324B burner I bought.
    I then closed my case I installed the burner CD burner for the test did not
    I went to the training process (really simple)
    Unfortunately, I threw a CD, then restart the system did not run the CD burner
    All the above tests, but does not have any type of CD.
    I bought the CD burner was my mistake at the top Czech Nkrdmkh credentials or not?
    Summary away with EEPROM_Utility I had to restore my backup, but did not answer …
    Now what I want … I get comments?

    Hello I am a Italian user who has upgraded to 'LT +3.0 not knowing the necessity of topology data. From what I understand from Team Xecuter released these games only work in English. I have to wait for the release of ABGX360 1.0.6 or is there a solution for us Italians?
    Thank you for your attention


    ciao sono un utente italiano , che ha aggiornato all' LT+3.0 non sapendo della necessità del topology data. Da come ho capito questi ultimi rilasciati dal TEAM XECUTER funzionano solo per i giochi in lingua inglese. Io devo attendere l'uscita del ABGX360 1.0.6 oppure c'è una soluzione per noi italiani?
    Grazie della tua attenzione
    Distinti Saluti

    People have the dumbest questions here, generally speaking. The time it takes to read through all the posts here on the site might take an hour. Instead people struggle for hours then post an uneducated question and people flame them. The people answering the questions are not c4eva they just read what he had to say so why don't you! Also, idiots saying c4eva is a fake or the fw is crap well just go away and die. The firmware does work, perhaps the problem is on your end if it don't…ie duh why are truncated discs not working hmm well they may or may not play on 3.0 depending on what CIV checks MS added so stop being a dumb ass and buy an iHAS burner. We need and "are you just being an idiot" checklist so people can compare to that before stating the fw doesn't work or asking why is this not working. Let me start 1)lt 3.0 with proper dvd key 2) using Verbatim 3)using iHAS burner with burnermax fw 4) adding correct topography data for the game. 5)verifying with kprobe that the disc is good. Anything else people could add to the check list? Thanks c 4 evarything

      No, there won't be as it's not needed. Please read the note about it under Samsung in the Status Table on the main page. If something changes in a future system update that necessitates a new fw for Samsung, only then will it get a new version.

    Hi guys if I buy a new benq vad for ripping any ideas if I need the drive code or just flash it with the ripping firmware. It will not ever be in a Xbox

    dvd key is only used for your 360. why would you need that for a drive thats never going to be in one ??? put the 0800 v3 firmware on there . what i did was took a HD dvd player for the xbox 360 , and put a liteon drive in it. I choose lite-on simply because C4eva said it is the most accurate on ripping the games. i took out the hd player and replaced it with the liteon drive . used the 0800 firmware and i can hook it to my pc using usb and the drive is well protected then just sold the hd drive aloneo to make back some of the money i spent

    That is, why you not updated your system dash! The ISO patched with topology continue with the old ap25 file until abgx is out to properly construct the iso!

    So I have a question, and It may have been answered sort of already, but I didn't see the exact answer I was looking for. So I'm wondering If I did a 0800 Rip of MW3 the day it came out, is this still a good rip, or does it need to be ripped again? As far as I know, the 0800 v 3.0 firmware on that day would've been the same 0800 v 3.0 firmware that I'm using now, which is the latest and possibly the only firmware if I'm not mistaken. I'm about to flash my BenQ with the LT v 3.0. I'm just trying to make sure I'm safe before I jump online. Anyone have any feedback on this?

      No, your backup doesn't contain the new topology data required by LT+ v3.0. The 0800 v3.0 hasn't changed, but that's beside the point as it's XBC that actually does the extraction of the AP25 topology data, not the 0800 fw itself. Since you made your backup with the older version of XBC, it would have included an AP25 replay sector which is fine for LT+ v2.x, but not for v3.0. You'll either need to rip your burned backup back to ISO with imgburn and patch with the appropriate topology data .bin, or re-rip your original again with the latest v2.9.0.350 of XBC.

    I have a question for c4eva, Is there a difference between laser failure and topology data missing for being flagged? Is there a way M$ will figure out the difference between a backup game and original game? Is it possible that M$ will risk the ban wave for all of us that are flagged including original games?

    LT+ 2.0 can't read togology data so the game will boot but if you update it will not read the topology data only with LT+3.0
