c4eva Spoke! (2011-12-25 #c4e)


[2011-12-25 01:31AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> merry xmas!
[2011-12-25 01:48AM UTC] #c4e <redf0x> will previously burnt games work on 3.0 or do they have to be the newly burned topology
[2011-12-25 01:48AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> redfox:if they are ap25, will need topology, old games wont
[2011-12-25 01:48AM UTC] #c4e <HiveBlind> Thanks C4eva you rock
[2011-12-25 01:48AM UTC] #c4e <SpeedHack> Thank you c4eva marry xmas
[2011-12-25 01:48AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> np
[2011-12-25 01:48AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> merry xmas all
[2011-12-25 01:48AM UTC] #c4e <Disturbed> so will xgd3 games boot on the new dash now ?
[2011-12-25 01:48AM UTC] #c4e <Disturbed> with lt 3.0?
[2011-12-25 01:48AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> yes, with topology data
[2011-12-25 01:55AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> xbc up, merry xmas all!
[2011-12-25 01:56AM UTC] #c4e <Ichibani> is there a post anywhere on how the silver bullet solution works? just curious about it
[2011-12-25 01:56AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> ichibani:read nfo :)
[2011-12-25 02:39AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> merry xmas!
[2011-12-25 02:43AM UTC] #c4e <Spikemonk> Is there a d/l for just the topology files for xbc yet?
[2011-12-25 02:46AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> patches coming, topology data coming can patch with xbc!
[2011-12-25 04:17AM UTC] #c4e <ATARI> well I asked you earlier if we would be able to create our own topology and you told me a new bin file would be needed
[2011-12-25 04:17AM UTC] #c4e <SOL> ripping does not give you a median is what I said
[2011-12-25 04:17AM UTC] #c4e <ATARI> right, which means you cannot just rip burn and play… You still need the median.bin, as XBC needs it in order to patch even new rips
[2011-12-25 04:17AM UTC] #c4e <SOL> ATARI: no you can ripa nd play fine
[2011-12-25 04:18AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> atari:yes you can if you have the original
[2011-12-25 04:19AM UTC] #c4e <terpsfan> so we only need the median file if we are downloading, and if we just ripped games with the 800 v3 with the new xbc we don’t need to wait for the files?
[2011-12-25 04:19AM UTC] #c4e <godot> yes terps
[2011-12-25 04:19AM UTC] #c4e <Cornholio> so the median is like a file with topology data from a few different originals?
[2011-12-25 04:19AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> latest xbc rips will now include topology data
[2011-12-25 04:43AM UTC] #c4e <wodkamen> do i have 2 reinstall gaves onto my hdd after i patch and reburn or does that not matter?
[2011-12-25 04:44AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> wod:doesnt matter
[2011-12-25 04:59AM UTC] #c4e <INTENT1ON> hey k3rn3l the 3 older ap25 games on xgd2 will they patch through abgx using the new method..or do we need the do the same through xbc
[2011-12-25 05:00AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> intention:same use xbc
[2011-12-25 05:01AM UTC] #c4e <lolQaeda> Merry Christmas, everybody
[2011-12-25 05:01AM UTC] #c4e <Turk3y> merry christmas
[2011-12-25 05:01AM UTC] #c4e <BadIntent> Merry Christmas
[2011-12-25 05:01AM UTC] #c4e <davem> gracias c4eva we all love u
[2011-12-25 05:01AM UTC] #c4e <PayterX> hello c4eva THANKS
[2011-12-25 05:01AM UTC] #c4e <Kerromati> wow MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone!!!
[2011-12-25 05:01AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> merry xmas :)
[2011-12-25 05:02AM UTC] #c4e <King_Zyzz> Is there still the need to have the dae.bin for injecting the median in the already ripped games?
[2011-12-25 05:02AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> king:no
[2011-12-25 05:03AM UTC] #c4e <Allenpro> c4eva is this legit iXtreme_LTplus_3_Topology_Data_Patches-XBOX360-RRoD
[2011-12-25 05:03AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> allen:yes
[2011-12-25 06:18AM UTC] #c4e <PayterX> successfuly made and using topology for black ops/mw2/mw3/gow3/skyrim/bf3
[2011-12-25 06:19AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> well done :)
[2011-12-25 06:35AM UTC] #c4e <johnnn> Well, putting the facts together, xbox360 is kinda getting old, M$ just came out with ap25, its defeated, there already likely working on a new console, it seems like they could give up
[2011-12-25 06:37AM UTC] #c4e <johnnn> a new console means less attention for the 360
[2011-12-25 06:38AM UTC] #c4e <johnnn> with that said, maybe 3.0 could be the final
[2011-12-25 06:38AM UTC] #c4e <johnnn> AP25 waqs smart from M$, defeated easily by c4eva, whats left lol
[2011-12-25 06:38AM UTC] #c4e <johnnn> they have nowhere to go
[2011-12-25 06:39AM UTC] #c4e <johnnn> well, I cant think of anything else, topology data is emulating the retail disc, its just a matter of time before M$ cant win
[2011-12-25 06:41AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> johnnn:not much, in the end after evrything, it came down to per console ap25 :)
[2011-12-25 07:01AM UTC] #c4e <brucewarr> god you guys are awesome
[2011-12-25 07:02AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> merry xmas!
[2011-12-25 09:25AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> merry xmas!
[2011-12-25 10:44AM UTC] #c4e <tVenc> now trying to play skyrim
[2011-12-25 10:44AM UTC] #c4e <tVenc> it shows update
[2011-12-25 10:44AM UTC] #c4e <tVenc> is it safe to update now?
[2011-12-25 10:45AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> tvenc:yes
[2011-12-25 10:45AM UTC] #c4e <MrMagic> c4e: thanks and merry xmas!
[2011-12-25 10:45AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> merry xmas!
[2011-12-25 10:47AM UTC] #c4e <Sully> C4eva. You ok?
[2011-12-25 10:47AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> yes
[2011-12-25 10:50AM UTC] #c4e <Kombine> c4eva – new topology xgd3 detected
[2011-12-25 10:50AM UTC] #c4e <Kombine> in Driver (russian version)
[2011-12-25 10:51AM UTC] #c4e <Kombine> generic patch not working
[2011-12-25 10:51AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> kombine:use new xbc, backup original
[2011-12-25 08:30PM UTC] #c4e <n00b373> Hi, I am very confused about what we have to do to play XGD3/AP2.5 games. C4 said abgx is not needed but how do we patch games then?
[2011-12-25 08:32PM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> n00b:use xbc
[2011-12-25 08:34PM UTC] #c4e <wckdp4t> prankster : thx im confused because when i started the new xbc it still say ap25 could not locate dae.bin
[2011-12-25 08:35PM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> wckdp:ignore

[2011-12-22 10:00AM UTC] #fw <c4eva> hello

c4eva Spoke! (2011-12-22 #c4e)


[2011-12-22 09:08AM UTC] #c4e <xobex> can someone explain how lt 3.0 will work?
[2011-12-22 09:11AM UTC] #c4e <MatHazard> xobex what drive is in you're machine because not all drives will be getting / need lt 3.0.
[2011-12-22 09:12AM UTC] #c4e <xobex> liteon 0225
[2011-12-22 09:13AM UTC] #c4e <xobex> drilled, and runs on lt 2.0
[2011-12-22 09:13AM UTC] #c4e <MatHazard> ok you will need lt 3.0 but I am unsure what it means, I do believe you will need to reburn xgd3
[2011-12-22 09:13AM UTC] #c4e <xobex> thats no problem, but i mean, do i need to glitch hack my xbox
[2011-12-22 09:13AM UTC] #c4e <xobex> or do i just have to patch the iso files and reburn it
[2011-12-22 09:14AM UTC] #c4e <xobex> to get the "topology data"
[2011-12-22 09:46AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva_> xobex:patch iso and reburn
[2011-12-22 09:50AM UTC] #c4e <tim132> morning
[2011-12-22 09:54AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva_> morning :)
[2011-12-22 09:55AM UTC] #c4e <Absinth> Will patches be made available before hand or after fw release?
[2011-12-22 09:56AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva_> at same time
[2011-12-22 09:59AM UTC] #c4e * c4eva_ is now known as c4eva
[2011-12-22 09:59AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> :)
[2011-12-22 10:01AM UTC] #c4e <Plutonium> Will the topography data pontentially needed for all games as it has been said that it could be retroactivly used via a title update?
[2011-12-22 10:02AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> only ap25 activated titles
[2011-12-22 10:05AM UTC] #c4e <Xboxnube> And according to the site, we will be able to use XBC to inject topology data into previous backups until ABGX is released, correct?
[2011-12-22 10:06AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> yes
[2011-12-22 10:09AM UTC] #c4e <Cornholio> c4eva, won't they be able to activate ap2.5 on any game title?
[2011-12-22 10:09AM UTC] #c4e <Plutonium> he said they wouldn't
[2011-12-22 10:09AM UTC] #c4e <Plutonium> only ap25 titles
[2011-12-22 10:10AM UTC] #c4e <Cornholio> when did he say that?
[2011-12-22 10:10AM UTC] #c4e <Plutonium> 2 seconds ago when i asked lol
[2011-12-22 10:10AM UTC] #c4e <Cornholio> no he did not
[2011-12-22 10:10AM UTC] #c4e <zaidy> they can, but doesn't the silver bullet bypass the ap2.5 checks
[2011-12-22 10:10AM UTC] #c4e <Cornholio> he said "only ap2.5 activated titles"
[2011-12-22 10:10AM UTC] #c4e <Cornholio> he did not say that they could not activate it on older titles
[2011-12-22 10:10AM UTC] #c4e <Plutonium> <Plutonium> Will the topography data pontentially needed for all games as it has been said that it could be retroactivly used via a title update?
[2011-12-22 10:10AM UTC] #c4e <Plutonium> <@c4eva> only ap25 activated titles
[2011-12-22 10:11AM UTC] #c4e <Cornholio> yes Plutonium "ap25 activated titles"
[2011-12-22 10:11AM UTC] #c4e <Cornholio> that does not mean it can't be activated on more games
[2011-12-22 10:11AM UTC] #c4e <Cornholio> lol
[2011-12-22 10:11AM UTC] #c4e <Cornholio> the reason i asked was that reply
[2011-12-22 10:11AM UTC] #c4e <Xboxnube> No, you would need to patch in topology data if AP 2.5 were activated I believe
[2011-12-22 10:11AM UTC] #c4e <Cornholio> before it is activated to avoid flag i assume
[2011-12-22 10:12AM UTC] #c4e <Plutonium> I would love some clarification on this. I assumed it was clear but I guess not…
[2011-12-22 10:12AM UTC] #c4e <Cornholio> Plutonium, me2, thats why i ask :)
[Editor's note: To clarify, yes, it can be activated for older titles, at which time they would also need to be patched or re-ripped with topology data. Read this post for a more thorough explanation.]
[2011-12-22 10:13AM UTC] #c4e <Xboxnube> I believe you could re-rip your original & get topology data if you need to
[2011-12-22 10:14AM UTC] #c4e <c4eva> yes

Some Additional Info as the Christmas Eve Release of iXtreme LT+ v3.0 Nears


With the final testing stage of BenQ and phat Lite-On underway in preparation for the scheduled Christmas Eve release of c4eva's iXtreme LT+ v3.0, we thought we'd drop some additional bits of info into your Stockings in the form of answers to some recent questions.

Version 3.0 of iXtreme LT+ for BenQ and Lite-On (both phat and slim) does in fact retain support for truncated backups, although it is strongly recommended to use full burns made with a compatible Lite-On iHAS drive flashed with the iXtreme Burner MAX fw. Support for truncated backups, however, remains excluded from Hitachi in its forthcoming 3.0 version.

While abgx360 v1.0.6 remains in progress, the new version of Xbox Backup Creator can be used temporarily as an alternative for injecting the necessary new AP25 topology data files into existing backup ISOs. XBC doesn't perform the same degree of validation of topology data files, and provides no means to verify their authenticity or correctness, so be very cautious if using files from unknown sources until abgx360 is released. In addition to extracting/injecting AP25 topology data files, the new XBC also works with the existing 0800 v3.0 ripping firmware to dump backup ISOs that include proper topology data from original game discs. At the time of writing, it has yet to be definitively determined whether the new XBC will be released alongside LT v3.0, or if it will be released later. The new abgx360 is still under heavy development, and will release in due time.

Recently, there have been some rumors and bogus info spread by a sad individual that is attempting to trick and confuse people with fake release dates, false info, bogus IRC channels and Facebook accounts (note: we don't post on Facebook, only Twitter), and mislabeling things as "official" when they are in fact not. We'd like to remind users that the only official sources for news and info from c4eva and the team are here at c4evaSpeaks.com, the #c4e channel on EFNet IRC, the Team-Xecuter, JungleFlasher, and abgx360 websites, as well as reliable news outlets such as Xbox-Scene. Be wary of news or information from other outlets that don't cite the official #c4e IRC channel or one of the aforementioned sites as the original source.
