Hi,

A friend brought me his console to update it and flash to the lates LT firmware, thing is, the damn console got a samsung drive spoofed as liteon 74850.

Now, I managed to update the dashboard by flashing with blank dvd key (all zeros or FFFFF) and then updating from USB flash drive, then I flashed the drive with the samsung lt 2.01, now normal XGD2 games works but AP25 & XGD3 don’t.

with AP25 I get an error of unreadable disc and XGD3 games just make the console freeze, the tv goes to the blue background and the xbox ring turn all red untill the console is switched off and back on, and that’s a good situation, that it won’t make the drive freeze and not open, in that case the red lights get fixed only after manually removing the Disc from the drive.

So, buttom line, is there even a chance to make it work or my friend need to get a liteon 74850 somehow?

that xbox expects to have a liteon drive, which is able to do ap2.5 security checks. it will always try to do those checks, but a samsung drive cannot do it, so it will always fail the check. in other words no ap2.5 (which includes all xgd3) games will boot. you need to get a liteon drive, but it doesn’t have to be the same. the 74850C, 83850C, and 93450C were all updated to the same firmware 02510C. so any old liteon DG-16D2S will work.
