TX and C4eva Defeat All 360 Slim Drives with PCB & LT Ultimate! *UPDATED*

The wraps have finally come off what Team Xecuter recently teased as "The Lord of the Hacks – One Xbox 360 Drive to Rule Them All". The surprise is a new Unlocked DVD Replacement PCB universal for all Xbox 360 Slim DVD drives (Lite-On DG-16D4S 9504/0272/0225/0401/1071, Lite-On DG-16D5S 1175/1532, Hitachi DLN10N 0500/0502).

In addition to this astounding feat, and equally amazing, is c4eva's creation of a new firmware in the Lite Touch line, dubbed "LT Ultimate", or "LTU" for short. LT Ultimate has been developed specifically for use with the new Slim DVD PCB, and is safe for use on Xbox LIVE and when performing dashboard SystemUpdates. Unlike previous firmwares, LT Ultimate boasts an incredible new feature that allows it to function without needing a previous full fw dump; only the DVD key is required! LT Ultimate will initially be released as v1.0, and consists of a single firmware file, containing all the necessary code to function with each of the Slim DVD drives, and JungleFlasher handling the selection and programming of it for the appropriate drive model and firmware version.

LT Ultimate is based on LT+ v3.0, so nothing has changed with respect to ripping, ISO structure, or AP2.5 Topology Data requirements. As was the case with LT+ v3.0 for Lite-On DG-16D4S, support is retained for truncated XGD3 backups by LT Ultimate on Lite-On DG-16D4S & DG-16D5S and Hitachi DLN10N, but their use is strongly recommended against.

Additional information concerning the key dumping process will be announced soon.

To be absolutely clear, and to mitigate the inevitable deluge of repeat questions, the new Unlocked DVD Replacement PCB is for Xbox 360 Slim DVD drives only, and the LT Ultimate firmware can only be used in conjunction with the new PCB — it cannot be flashed to original Slim drive PCBs or the old TX v1.0/v1.1 PCBs.

LT Ultimate is now currently "in testing", and the Firmware Status table on c4evaSpeaks.com has been updated accodingly to reflect the new version and statuses, as well as on the dedicated LiteOn1175.com and LiteOn1532.com landing pages.

*UPDATE* [2012-10-30 08:11AM UTC]
With Team Xecuter's official annoucement today of the associated products (CR3 Pro and CR3-DGX), we're now able to publicly clarify that, contrary to an earlier statement made by c4eva on 2012-08-19, RGH (Reset Glitch Hack) is in fact required for DVD Key retrieval from all newer drives; Lite-On 1175/1532 DG-16D5S, and Hitachi 0500/0502 DLN10N.

To break it down a bit, these are the DVD Key retrieval RGH requirements:

  • DVD Key retrieval from Lite-On 1175/1532 DG-16D5S on kernel 2.0.14XXX.0 or lower, requires CoolRunner Rev. A/B/C, CR3 Lite, or CR3 Pro (Slim version).
  • DVD Key retrieval from Lite-On 1175/1532 DG-16D5S on kernel 2.0.15XXX.0/2.0.16XXX.0 and higher, requires CR3 Pro (Slim version) + CR3-DGX.
  • DVD Key retrieval from Hitachi 0500/0502 DLN10N on kernel 2.0.14XXX.0 or lower, requires CoolRunner Rev. A/B/C, CR3 Lite, or CR3 Pro (Slim version).
  • DVD Key retrieval from Hitachi 0500/0502 DLN10N on kernel 2.0.15XXX.0/2.0.16XXX.0 and higher, requires CR3 Pro (Slim version) + CR3-DGX.

The CR3-DGX is an add-on that connects to the CR3 Pro and aids in CPU/DVD Key retrieval for systems on updated kernels 2.0.15XXX.0/2.0.16XXX.0 and higher. Until now, these systems were unable to have their keys retrieved by normal means due to Microsoft's thwarting of the "XOR hack" as of the 2.0.15572.0 update, which added a new key to the RC4 key hash calculation.

With the new Unlocked DVD Replacement PCB, LT Ultimate, and now Team Xecuter's other newly-introduced products, all 360s can now be RGH'd and all DVD drives can be flashed — a truly momentous point in Xbox 360 scene history!

*UPDATE* [2012-10-31 11:53PM UTC]
On IRC today, c4eva made a statement clarifying why it was originally thought that the Lite-On 1175 DG-16D5S would not require RGH for DVD Key extraction. This should clear up people's confusion, and hopefully put an end to the silly rumors that there was a secret non-RGH method for grabbing the Key.

[2012-10-31 11:45PM UTC] #fw <c4eva> the key originally dumped from 1175 drive is an aes key,but it was not the dvd key as originally thought. This aes key will still be dumped by the flashing process as it is unique per drive!
[2012-10-31 11:53PM UTC] #fw <c4eva> for 1175/1532 the dvdkey and realtime fw checks have been moved into the drive cpu, complicating things a bit! :)

Below is a demo video from Team Xecuter showing the new Slim Unlocked DVD Replacement PCB in action with c4eva's LT Ultimate firmware on a Lite-On DG-16D5S 1532:

      Mate,there is a reason why its better to use Verbatim.They maybe are a little bit expensive than the other medias,but you have to pay for the quality,don't you think?

      1 – You can keep Verbatim medias more longer than the others medias.
      2 – When you buy a Verbatim spindle,all your discs will be good to
      burn,and not 30% of them like cheaper medias.
      3 – To burn XGD3 games successfully,you need to burn on all the surface of your disc,especially the extreme part on the corner.With cheaper medias,this part is often blank.You can in reality burn 8,2 GB or 8,3 GB,instead of 8,5 GB.Verbatim don't have this problem.

      If you want to use them,it's up to you,but you will have a truncated game.You already know the consequences.

        You're 50% wrong – in the media dept.

        Once the iHAS Burner & IMGBurn Settings are tuned-in (OPC & HT – Google this) to your particular PC and Brand of Media. After a few test burns, You (or myself for example), will eventually get consistent burns. The burn quality will only get better as the OPC isn't cleared and the initial Settings aren't modified.

        However, you will achieve slightly better Kprobe 2 results with Verbatim (I emphasize Slightly) per my experience since iHAS FW was released; but will still achieve good enough quality results with the Media Brand that I mention (below).

        WinData DVD+R DL 8x 8.5GB (I used to be a huge Verbatim Fanboy, until I pulled the trigger on the infamous Brand)
