News on Lite-On DG-16D5S 1175 Drive *Updated*
>> From c4evaspeaks.com:
[QUOTE]
Work on this drive is temporarily suspended while v3.0 is in progress for other drive models.

The original fw of the DG-16D5S 1175 drive was dumped several months ago, shortly after the drive first began appearing in retail units, but employs a new encryption that is different from the older DG-16D4S drive model. There will be no further progress on cfw for this drive until the encryption algorithm is reversed and the ofw decrypted.

Wasabi 360 Ultra firmware v1.2 BETA1
>> From wasabi360.com:
[QUOTE]
We have released Wasabi 360 Ultra firmware v1.2 BETA 1 which includes the following changes:
* Dynamic AP25 responses based on disc profiles are now supported, allowing AP25 protected titles to function with the latest 14699 dash and console specific dae.bin updates
* Support for GPT partitions added, enabling support for drives larger than 2TB

The updated handling of AP25 protection is in response so the recent AP25 updates that Microsoft has been rolling out via Xbox Live. Wasabi 360 Ultra is now capable of correctly responding to any random AP25 challenge, such as those found in the console specific part of dae.bin. This means that Wasabi 360 Ultra can now fully support any AP25 (and XGD3) games in conjunction with fully updated consoles running the latest 14699 dashboard. It is important to note that the way with which AP25 protection is handled has changed entirely with this release; full details may be found in the documentation within the update archive. Please ensure that you familiarise yourself with these changes before testing this BETA firmware.

Finally, if you are testing this BETA firmware, it is now safe to continue using Xbox Live with Wasabi 360 Ultra in pass-through mode.

xeBuild GUI v1.1
>> Swizzy released a new version of his GUI for xeBuild v1.0:
[QUOTE]
Overview - What it does
- This is a frontend/GUI for xeBuild, what it does is make it easy for you to select most options that you might need, such as Motherboard, SMC hack for freeboot, image type etc. etc.
- It is able to check what SMC hack you have previously used for JTAG it's also able to tell you what SMC version you have, and if it's a JTAG, Clean/Retail, Glitch or Cygnos patched SMC :)
- If you put any of these files next to the executable it'll use them
automaticly:
SMC.bin - Custom SMC of your choice; ONLY USE THIS OF YOU KNOW WHAT
YOU ARE DOING!!!!
Xell.bin - Custom Xell of your choice; ONLY USE THIS OF YOU KNOW WHAT
YOU ARE DOING!!!!
cpukey.txt - It'll read the first line of this file as CPUKey
flashdmp.bin - It'll load this as source nand ;)
Default.xml - It'll load any preset settings from this file ;)
options.ini - It'll load any custom settings from this (for xeBuild)
launch.ini - Settings for Dashlaunch, if you choose to use this setting it'll include this file in the built image ;)

What's new/fixed (v1.1):
- Added: Function to prepare a USB memory stick for updating your console with the AVATAR support (Update downloader)
- Fixed: Copying of Cygnos360 V2 SMC now works...
- Fixed: Some Xenon SMC's didn't show previous hack properly... works now :D
- Fixed: Sometimes the app will recognise your SMC as Cygnos whiles it's JTAG, the app will now show you it's JTAG if it can see that it's JTAG patched aswell instead of fooling you by saying it's a cygnos 360 patch...
- Changed: The app no longer asks if you want to clear the log after autosaving, instead it asks if you want to Close the app, Clear the log or just leave the way it is :)
- Added: Reading cpukey/ldv from fuse.txt or downloading it from xell now also saves both CPUKey and DVDKey (if available) to keys.txt :)

What's new/fixed (v1.0b):
- Fixed: XP Compatibilty issues causing the app to crash as it can't find the files it requires due to XP beeing generally gay when it comes to directory shit ]_[ (i thought i had found all of them, but apparently some little buggers passed by me prior to release :(
- Fixed: Already open windows will not automaticly be brought to the front so you can see them :)
- Fixed: Selecting Glitch/Trinity then selecing JTAG/Xenon will no longer cause the Xell section to be de-selected randomly :)
- Added: Failsafes in custom options, you can no longer set your MAX temp lower then your running temperatures! and you can also not set max/running temp without setting the other option aswell...
- Added: Check if you have selected the same Xell/Dualboot button twice (excludes not setting it of course)
