hi admin,
i want to know when will release the firmware for Lite-on 1175,
on web site, show “Lite-On 1175 DG-16D5S NO INFO NO INFO”,
the firmware of “Lite-On 0800 DG-16D2S v3.0 RELEASED” has been release, but, i saw “[2012-01-05 08:42PM UTC] #c4e slim liteon 0800 v3 also coming soon! “, why c4 will go on working on liteon 0800? could you please release firmware Lite-On 1175 early?
thank you for your care of the user who using the “Lite-On 1175″

Dude, the 1175 hasn’t even been hacked yet. There isn’t any custom firmware for it until its security algorithm has been reversed and the drive can be put into vendor mode. Once C4eva’s done with 3.0 for the 4S, he’ll go back to work on the 5S.

hi mick,

thank you for your words, i just feel maybe it is a long time for c4 to hack the 5S, whether i can do some work for you or others to build a custom fireware. i have a slim with DG-16D5s rom-disk and pc software developing environmnet. i wish 5s will be hacked soon.

mick, they have been able to read the firmware from the 1175, but there is no easy dump method. also the data is encrypted and the dvd key cannot be extracted from it.

So, QM… what you’re saying…. basically: open mouth, insert gun? Am I screwed here? :(

Okay, so I just got my x360usb pro today. I hooked up my drive and tried all kinds of things to get the slimkey function to work. (ie, ejecting the drive, turning power on/off, using the alternate mode of the x360usb, etc.) Surprise of the century: it didn’t work. I’m using the latest Jungle Flasher (V0.1.91 beta (300)) and it just recognizes the drive. I’ve got two questions for either QuickMythril or anyone else who really knows what they’re talking about:

1. I understand that in order to flash a drive it needs to be in vendor mode. Does it also need to be in vendor mode to extract the key?
2. Based on this drive, will I eventually need to kamikaze hack this thing in order to get it into vendor mode?

Thanks!

yeah vendor mode to read and write. from what i understand someone basically dissolved the top of the controller chip to expose the inner circuitry and by messing with that they were able to read the firmware. but the firmware is encrypted differently than the previous slims and in a way that has not been broken yet, so there is not much you can do at this point. who knows if anyone will ever figure out a way to hack this drive or if you will just have to get replacement boards no matter what. again, none of that is relevant because if the encryption is not cracked then the dvd key cannot be extracted and also an ixtreme version cannot be created.

I guess all that has been done for the old drives too. Do you know how long it took them to decrypt the old drives?

hi QuickMythril

As you said, the encryption can’t be cracked, then can’t get DVD key.
we know that c4eva had dump the driver of 5S for a long time, so, at this state, whether c4 could get the method already, just there is no time to do this work? after all, decryption is so hard.

Well….. SORTA, shougao. This is a direct quote from the main page of this site:

[2011-12-31 05:22AM UTC] #c4e So wait. Do I manually patch Reach with the topography patch, or let ABGX use it’s database file to repair it?
[2011-12-31 05:23AM UTC] #c4e abgx doens’t support xgd3 yet or the patching of the topodata
[2011-12-31 05:23AM UTC] #c4e it will “soon” when new version comes out
[2011-12-31 05:24AM UTC] #c4e repatch with xbc
[2011-12-31 09:10AM UTC] #c4e hi. i have the LT 3.0 with 14699 dash. For example if i get cod mw3 i need only to verify via abgx?
[2011-12-31 09:15AM UTC] #c4e volk:no, patch with xbc
[2011-12-31 09:20AM UTC] #c4e lo c4eva, happy new year!
[2011-12-31 09:21AM UTC] #c4e happy new year!
[2011-12-31 09:21AM UTC] #c4e i have patched with XBC, Verbs MKM003 [ Mitsubishi Chemical Corp. ] 4x –> If i have game installed on hdd i have CIV error. Dont installed = any CIV error.
[2011-12-31 09:22AM UTC] #c4e sleepy:ihas burner?
[2011-12-31 09:23AM UTC] #c4e Hey c4eva, any word on slim drives on LT 3.0?
[2011-12-31 09:31AM UTC] #c4e C4eva ! what your new 2012 wishes ?
[2011-12-31 09:31AM UTC] #c4e 3.0 slim and 1175 slim drives xD
[2011-12-31 09:31AM UTC] #c4e haha
[2011-12-31 09:31AM UTC] #c4e It’s a secret
[2011-12-31 09:35AM UTC] #c4e 1175 will be done!

So, according to c himself, he’s confident that 1175 will be hacked. I think it’s more a matter of time than difficulty. Right now he’s too busy finishing up 3.0 for the other drives. I just hope his confidence isn’t misplaced :(
