I have a hitachi 79 with lt 2.0b running the last version of the old dash on it with the dae.bin changed so I have to use title updates with certain games. Ive been waiting for what feels like forever for lt 3.0 to update to the new dash. I accidentally burned a xgd3 game with the topology data in it already, I didn’t think my system would play it because it had the topology data in it and I’m running lt 2.0b, my system played it fine with no title update needed? My main question is why can’t I update and go online with lt 2.0b? I’m assuming that lt 2.0b won’t be able to respond to the checks ms would throw at it right? Can someone please shine some light on this situation for me please, I almost think lt 3.0 for hitachi 78/79 will never come out because it is unnecessary.

if your drive ran a topology disc with 2.0, then it might be one of the 78/79 drives that do not do ap2.5 checks. if that is the case then you don’t have to worry whether your discs have ap2.5 sectors or topology sectors. it would be like a samsung, which boots discs for both 2.0 and 3.0 since it ignores that part of the disc.

That’s what i figured but I still don’t want to update until I’m for sure.

hitachi LT+ 2.0 doesn’t boot truncated discs or xbox 1 backups, but xbox 1 originals work.

I have a 79 and I have been able to run all 3s’ topology data or not. I know there was a long post about this a few months ago but, I believe it was determined if it is booting your Hitachi does not have 2.5 checks and you should be fine to go online. I did a mod for a buddy the other night who has a lite on. Old rips would not play in his as there was no topology data but, ones I re-ran through abgx and got the data worked. On my Hitachi either disc version loaded immediately for me with or without topology.

Genuis just bit the bullet and tried my 78 with a game not yet verified with abgx and worked first time xval showing still clean :)
