I just read this on another forum. Obviously makes sense. Not sure now they got info this site hasn’t but…

“C4eva shared with us in private today some further details about the upcoming iXtreme LT+ v3.0, which is now targetted for release sometime after December 6, 2011. Earlier this week, Microsoft’s Major Nelson announced December 6 as the official release date for the final version of its Fall 2011 Dashboard Update. Scheduling LT+ v3.0 for release after this date will allow c4eva and the team a chance to analyze the final update so as to ensure no additional changes to v3.0 are necessary.

With the new iXtreme LT+ v3.0, original game discs will need to be analyzed by Xbox Backup Creator in order to gain disc topology data. This data replaces the need for AP2.5/dae.bin data and enables any AP2.5 challenge to be answered correctly. C4eva noted that the topology data method is very efficient — using only 24kB of space — and extremely accurate. Due to differences between them, each game will require its own individual set of topology data. A risk of backups being detected poses itself if the same topology data is used between two different titles. This risk is mitigated by using abgx360 to make certain that the backup contains the appropriate topology data.

Backups will remain the same layout, but will either need to have the topology data inserted by the new abgx360, or be re-dumped with the new Xbox Backup Creator. C4eva reconfirmed that all current AP2.5-active XGD2 and XGD3 backups with old AP25 replay data are not backward-compatible with iXtreme LT+ v3.0 and will indeed need to be patched or re-dumped and re-burned. Non-AP2.5 titles, however, will remain unchanged and do not require re-burning.”

Be warned, there are passworded I presume bogus files being uploaded to 360.games on usenet.

Avira says they are clean but I’d bet they are not real…

People cracking the password beware before you flash your drive!

mclane, are you saying there are supposed “alpha” versions of LT 3.0 floating around? seems weird as you’d need to have the topology data on your backup for it to even be of any use. plus it’s passworded? why would they do that…

Just some info. If you can get your hands on a Samsung drive you can use that to play your backups since it’s not affected by the AP2.x checks

@Quick, I don’t know what they are for sure, apart from virus free and passworded I have no clue what they are, internally they look legit but as C4eva has said Dec 6th all I’m saying is be careful.

Just do a Binsearch for Iextreme 3 and you will see them..

yeah that is pretty crazy… i have no idea how to get these binsearch/nzb/usenet things or whatever but it says the files inside are:

Latest_iXtreme_and_Stock_Firmware_Pack/Firmware/Firmware.md5, Firmware.txt, LT-sammy-v3.0.bin, LTPlus-0225-v3.0.bin, and v3.0u.bin

i’d love to see the firmware.txt, but why would there be a 3.0 for samsung…? i wouldn’t actually flash this to a drive, it’s 99.9999% probably fake, but my curiosity is so overwhelming that i’m looking up how usenet works and such. oh yeah you have to pay for an account…that’s why i never messed with it. i remember looking this up before. (oddly enough i can’t stay signed in here again, but i tried it in firefox instead of opera, and it worked fine.)

Yeah you have to pay quite a bit for them. A mate used to pay for usenet to get his ISOs. Costs quite a bit but if you’re downloading a lot of GBs a day it can be worth it. You should be able to easily find like a free weekly trial for one of the clients if you’re that curious
