It is official my friend. Flashed to Lt+ 1.1 for safety purposes, popped in my AC:B that had NO AP25 replay sector at all and the game loaded without a hitch. I also confirmed that my X value has not changed after running the naked AP25 backup.

I now firmly believe, after this test and circumstances, that the Hitachi 79 4b00 drives do NOT perform AP25/26 checks. You can take that to the bank. Looks like other 79 4b00 owners don’t need to waste their time waiting around for Lt+ 3.0 and no re-rips/burns. Based on my test, this confirms the 79 4b00 is essentially a Samsung or pre-78 drive in regards to AP25/26. yeee-haawww! =)

Wonder what the incredibly brilliant minds on IRC would have to say about them apples! Completely virgin, brand new never touched Xbox with an original Hitachi 79FL 4b00, never repaired, that does NOT perform AP25/26 checks.
