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:

    WOW! This is incredible. I mean here everyone is thinking that the new fw that is being worked on is only for the 1175. Then all of a suden c4eva announces a flash for every slim dvd drive including the brand new Lite-on 1532 drive and even the slim Hitachi drive! this is amazing thank you so much c4eva and Team Xecuter for all of your hard work. I personally have a 1071 slim drive that has been flashed, but just to see this amazing progress is the flashing community is just amazing.

    Hi, i'm from colombia and my english is pretty bad, but if i'm right all the 360s slim can be "flashed" to read game copys with this new Lt ultimate, right?

    But i dont understan one thing whant means P-C-B? as i said my english is bad and i don't know what means that.

    "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 PCB — it cannot be flashed to original Slim drive PCBs."

    What mean when they say "it cannot be flashed to original Slim drive PCBs."

    My xbox 360 has been never opened or something its just like it was when i bougth it (it has a hitachi drive). is the LTU compatible with it?

    Sorry for the large comment but i was so happy when i read the topic, and i want to be sure if this Lt ultimate will help me.

    Thanks so much C4eva and team xecuter!

      What part are you confused about? You would to RGH to key the DVD Key, then use the PCB together with the LTU fw.

        will the CR3-DGX needed to rhg the consolle able to be reused? I mean, can we rhg, get the DVD key, un-rgh and flash the drive and then reuse the CR3-DGX/CR3 used for the first rhg to rhg and un-rhg another consolle and so on?

        Reply | Reply with Quote
        • avatar admin says:

          Yes, that's exactly right. The CR3-DGX has nothing to do with the actual RGH glitching, so after you've used it to retrieve the CPU/DVD Key, it and the CR3 Pro can be removed and re-used to extract keys on another 360.

    desculpa minha ignorância, mas se eu intendi bom e preciso primeiro instalar o rgh do videogame para depois extrair a key do dvd 1175, ou estou enganado.

    se for o caso posso eu colocar o dvd 1175 em outro videogame que ja esta com o rgh e extrair a key do dvd 1175

    abreu e lima – pernambuco – brasil

    excuse my ignorance, but if I intendi good and precise rgh install the game first and then extract the key dvd 1175, or am I mistaken.

    if so can i put the dvd 1175 in another game that is already with the rgh and extract the key from dvd 1175

    Both happy and sad about this.

    Fantastic! work by c4eva and the tx crew, no doubt about it. Thank you so much for all the hard work and dedication to the constant evolution of the x360. #humbled

    Sad, because it seems to leave all of us who cant solder to save our lives, out in the cold watching the LT Ultimate party through the windows… :(

    Oh well, time to buy that used, ancient model xbox and LT 3.0 hack it – lol :)

    Cheers and well done none the less!
