samsung and the older hitachis are immune to ap2.5, so you don’t need to worry about staying offline to avoid the silent update, or reburning your discs. LT 3.0 is not necessary for those drives, but by the time it comes out there may be some changes to the dashboard that will need to be addressed for those drives. basically no one knows at the moment if there will be a 3.0 for those drives, but the way it is looking you won’t need it anytime soon.

“Backups will remain the same layout, but will either need to have the topology data inserted by the new abgx360, or be re-dumped with the new Xbox Backup Creator. C4eva reconfirmed that all current AP2.5-active XGD2 and XGD3 backups with old AP25 replay data are not backward-compatible with iXtreme LT+ v3.0 and will indeed need to be patched or re-dumped and re-burned. Non-AP2.5 titles, however, will remain unchanged and do not require re-burning.”

so i am guessing that the topology data will just be in the same place that the ap2.5 data used to be. that way if someone burns you a disc with topology data because they don’t know what kind of drive you have, it will still work with LT 2.0 on the non-ap2.5 drives because they don’t ever even check that part of the disc. just like the old fable 3 that came out before ap2.5 was activated (with no ap2.5 data), or games with ap2.5 data that doesn’t match your dash would still work.
