Chances are, he doesn’t NEED to use JF. I think he probably helps them code it to some degree. Either way, the latest JF (Jungle Flasher V0.1.91 beta (300)) doesn’t work on this drive. Normal guys like you and I just have to wait until it’s updated.

Hi,
currently I’m in a tough situation. I bought an XBOX with this drive. I have the posibility to return it within 7 days.
Is there any reason to have doupts that this drive will be flashable somewhere in the future? If it will NOT be flashable i won’t have any use for the console and will not be able to return it to amazon.
If I return it and buy a new one when a FW is out, I have the slight chance to get another drive that is not flashable :/
Does someone have an advise?

c4eva has never failed us and I also bought this new slim with the 1175 drive already knowing I would have to wait, I guess it helps that I have the phat xbox 360 with a benq drive for now. But I would say that it’s a safe bet this drive will be done.

To be honest, I’d return it and find a used (not refurbished, nor one that’s broken or has had error messages) one on eBay. It’s not that I doubt c4eva’s ability, it’s just that there’s no official word on what it takes to make the drive readable in the first place. There might be a whole ordeal you’d have to go through to make this drive flashable that none of us knows yet. C4eva’s been real quiet on the progress of this drive so far, so no one has any idea how long it’s going to take or if he’s even had any real success yet. :(

shougao,
you are comparing values of different dimensions (GB and GiB; if you don’t know the difference, google for the answer).
your codmow3.iso is not 8.13GB, it’s 8.13GiB which is 8.73GB.
That is the reason why it does not fit the standard size of DVD+R DL which is only 8.5GB (you have to use extended burn).

hi gen_player,
thank you for your analyze, i understand.
my result is the unit of storage is GB and the unit of file is GiB, right ?

codmow3.iso is a binary file, so it’s unit is binary byte.
8.13 GiB = 8.13 * 1024 * 1024 * 1024 binary bytes, and 1 GB = 1.0 * 1000(G) * 1000(M) * 1000(K) bytes
so, divide it by 1 000 000 000 bytes(1GB), i get 8.73GB, it is bigger than 8.5GB.

so we said a hard-disk with 320GB, but it could only store 320 / (1024*1024*1024) GiB

correct.
Hard-drive and CD/DVD manufacturers use GB (using decimal base).
Windows always uses GiB, MiB, KiB(even though it calls it GB, MB, KB; hence a confusion).

hi all,

i read the manual of writing LT + 3.0, one step of it is that plug out the power of slim-dvd wait 3 seconds plug-in power again.
my question is, using xbox360-slim power cable to support power to the dvd-drive, and plug out the cable of power, right?(i don`t have another device),
another way is i power down xbox360-slim wait 3seconds and power on again, right ?
which way is right ? or all the ways are right .
