So far c4eva’s word has been good. I’d hate to see him lose that integrity over the hitachi fw. a simple statement of “i will no longer be supporting the hitachi 78/79″ would be very welcome. at least we all would know.

Storm:
Either the BenQ or the Lite-On 16D2S will work in regards to spoofing & flashing to 2.0 without a bunch of extra accessories. A Samsung would also work, but there is no 0800 ripping firmware for the PC so I personally would not get a Samsung. And I totally understand how ya feel, my box was manf in 2006 as well and has been fine so I’m not exactly looking forward to getting a new drive. I may end up just using the drive in my computer w/ 0800 FW to rip games. Hope this helps m8 =)

-Edit to add-
oh, and if I had to absolutely choose between the BenQ VAD6038 or Lite-On DG-16D2S, I’d go with the BenQ, but as I mentioned either will work.

You’re right, the ebay store says 180 days but the actual website says 90. Either way though really, three months is a pretty long time so if it really turned out to be six months it would just be a thicker layer of delicious icing =)

Here is my sob story so far as a hitachi owner. I’ve already bought a lite-on ihas 124b. upgraded the firmware and have bf3 burned flawlessly. How do I know this? because i modded my friends xbox which has a lite on drive and installed lt2.0 on that. I have to give it back soon, but theres a part of me that just wants to swap the consoles! gah! Hell, i even tried going to #c4e and posing the question about hitachi, but i am sure he didn’t even see it.

Anyways, admin, if you’re reading this and have any sort of pull what-so-ever could you possibly get at least a status update out of him? We’re all very grateful yet very anxious and just want to know if it’s next week, next month, next year?! At least people can plan accordingly.

why is C4EVA the only person who can provide the flash?
isn’t there anyone else working on it?
who knows – maybe he has some personal issues to deal with.

If there’s anything that c4eva has shown, is that he doesn’t care about Hitachi owners plight. He need $, for this situation to matter to him.

Well I bit the bullet and purchased a BenQ VAD6038 drive about five minutes ago. Not sure if I’ll use it to spoof & flash 2.0 or just immediately put it in my computer and flash 0800 for ripping. Decisions, decisions…

I really don’t feel like tearing open my xbox twice, once to swap the drives and again to swap them when Hitachi 2.0 comes out. I have an Xecuter Blaster CK3 installed to avoid constantly opening my box.

Why can’t Hitachi 2.0 just release, it would make things so much easier…even a predicted ETA would suffice. I agree with mctknow, next week, next month or next year? Give us SOMETHING other than the “it will be done” and “its on the list” bullshit answers

I think c4e want to release all hitachi firmwares at same time. Last hitachi fw pack lt1.1 contains 15 CFWs, (+originals) so there must be lot of tweaking. Im sure he will release new fw pack when its ready.

I have 2x hitachi consoles and got XGD3 burner too, now just waiting and hitting refresh on status page every day. If its take too long then I go and get used xbox its around ~80eur with warranty, not so bad deal.

I still trust he is doing all us happy someday :)
