c4eva Spoke! (2012-04-21 [priv msg])

[2012-04-21 06:30AM UTC] <******> did you end up doing a LIVE log for 14719? the update appeared to just be some additional bugfixes over 717, but wasn't sure if anything had changed on the backend (I assume not)
[2012-04-21 06:33AM UTC] <c4eva> yes, all good
[2012-04-21 06:34PM UTC] <******> great!

      You should always revert to stock but you probably won't get a ban. I know a couple of people that do it because they can easily replace their console if need be and they haven't been banned. Apparently they've done it for years. You should update using a USB to be certain as well rather than downloading the update through the Xbox.

        If your 360 is running stock, why would it make a difference if you update via usb instead of downloading it from live?

    HA!!! I was right!! I figured that my logic was wrong originally. I think if there was anything really serious, c4e would tell us right away not to go live, etc. Just like he did with AP25.

    I'm sceptical about this conversation as whoever had it has blanked out their name & it allegedly happened in PM where this kind of question/answer is the kind that should be done in public chat so its validity can be verified. Anybody can make up anything as this is the internet & I hope I'm wrong about this but it definitely smells fishy.

      actually the voltage didnt change but what the cosnole needs for air flow did because my fans run higher now since dashboard update

      Reply | Reply with Quote
      • avatar QuickMythril says:

        there are 6 temperatures within the system files of the dashboard. one is the "target temperature" that the console tries to maintain, and one is the "shutoff temp" which is supposed to keep the console from overheating. there are three of these pairs, one for CPU, GPU and RAM. the new updates actually lower the temperatures, so if your fans are running higher that would be a good thing, as it is trying harder to keep your console cool. so it is actually the opposite of what was originally suspected. the update improves the fans.

      disc two of kinect rush is 14th wave, and battleship is 15th wave, and they both still work fine with LT+ 2.0 and 3.0. there are also a few xgd3 games that now require 14699 or above, as opposed to all the older ones that just required 13599. these also will work fine with LT+ 3.0 as long as the topology is properly confirmed with abgx360.

      This is the second time I've seen someone asking a similar question today, and again the answer is "no". Are you getting this rumor from some other lame site, or just jumping to incorrect conclusions on your own? The team hasn't said a single thing to even remotely give that impression, so why are people asking this?

    I have an Ihas burner, that said it looks as if they are about gone. Looking at most vender's sites people are saying the new ones are now c not the b version. Any thoughts on supporting more burners, it is just around the corner before they are extinct. As much revenue as this topic brings I am surprised this has not already been addressed. Any thoughts thanks.

      This question has been previously addressed here. Alternatively, you can buy one of the many re-badged drives that can be cross-flashed with the iHAS fw. I may add a list of those to the iHAS notes in the Status table. You can find mention of them by searching the comments or forum. I've now added a list of the confirmed models to the Status table on the front page at the bottom of the Lite-On PC DVD Burner section.

    Are any flags of any sort stored on the xbox hard drive or just on the nand? Most would say just format the hard drive but that does not fully write over all the sectors. This will be coming off an off line box that was banned well before I ever got it. The hard drive is not the original one. Thanks in advance.

      Here's there canned response to this question (asked 1000000x a day) from the abgx360 channel on IRC:

      [2012-05-11 08:11PM] <Fw-Helper> (verify) games get verified by people buying/renting the game, ripping it (twice) and then uploading the files to the database. Until that happens, the game will NOT be verified. There is no 'timeframe' as to when a game will be verified.

        yes you should be safe as long as your xbox at home is not flashed. also when did you get the achievments before the game came out or after because that could be a problem if you got the arhievment before.

    Все просто, вам нужно установить нужную игру на хард, затем скинуть только на флешку любую mp3 песню и включить песню в музыкальном плеере, затем запускаете игру, ошибка не выскакивает и игра работает, а песню можно поставить на паузу. Смысл чтобы на лт2 с даебином запускать игры не прошиваясь на лт 3, муз плеер помогает обойти ошибку при запуске.

    Quite simply, you need to set the desired game on hard, then throw the stick just any mp3 song and include a song in music player, and then start the game, no error pops up and the game works, but the song can be put on pause. Meaning that on lt2 dae bin om to run the game is not for Lt. proshivayas 3 music player helps to avoid errors during startup.

        sorry to @Admin : but this DVD is ok ,, THE PIF VALUE IS MORE IMPORTANT ) that was no scream :D )

        THE PI VALUE IS FOR THE STRENGHT OF YOUR XBOX DRIVES LASER
        so a PI MAX 137 is for moderate til good Lasers ,, if your PI MAX is higher than 140 then you will have to teak the laser

        i did it and voila ,, every DVD with PI Max 170 & PIF MAX 6 & PIF AVERAGE 0.8,, WORKED

        THE PIF VALUE DETERMINE HOW CORRECT THE FINNER LINES ( because you need more space in Disc ) are burned ,, so a PIF 0,10 average is perfect as long MAX PIF reach 6 – 8 also depents on the Laser Power

        ANd to rech the good results ,, Burn with 2,4 OPC on ( clear every third DVD DL THE EEPROM HISTORY FOR OPC ) and thats it ,, a 100 % burning

        PS: i tried 3 IHAS BURNER and different settings and this is the best ,, needs only patience ^^

      future soldier can be truncated – i have been playing on a truncated copy for the past few days.

      dragon dogma and dirt showdown have to be burned at 100%. invest in an ihas drive – i just ordered one and some verbs – no problems from then on out.

      i was riding the truncated wave as long as i could just to finish up my stack of memorex dvd r dl's and it happened right in time for the new security checks-

          firstly no one should be truncating any games. you are just setting yourselves up to fail. secondly, you CAN get 100% burns with memorex, and you MIGHT get the game to install to the xbox to 100% and play with no problems, but you will ONLY get this to happen a very very small % of the time. verbatim costs maybe twice as much at the very most. (actually i usually see verbatims cheaper online than the memorex costs in the stores) but you will be wasting way way less discs. i have personally never gotten an xgd3 memorex disc to be read by any xbox. usually there are errors around the layerbreak.

    When it comes to XGD3 games Verbatim to me is the only choice. Everything else are a hit or miss. So for XGD3 I use Verbatim. The rest I use cheap WinData's. Also new Verbatim DataLifePlus have the same Media ID as WinData's, "UMEDISC". Funny thing is DataLifePlus work better. Made In China junk!

    • avatar QuickMythril says:

      i also bought a pack of white printable verbatims and they came with the UMEDISC media id. i could tell they were lesser quality than the MKM white printable discs, they even felt thinner. i had nowhere near the success rate of an MKM disc. honestly i have probably only wasted maybe 10% or less of MKM discs, and probably closer to 50% for any other brand. (not counting bad batches where i have an almost 0% success rate)
