What To Do If OSx360 Fails Verification

36

Comodo

UPDATE 6/23/2011 – isoBurn has been submitted to the Mac App Store, to read more about it and see some screen shots please visit http://empoc.com/isoburn

OSx360 probably the only application that is available for Mac that can properly burn XBOX 360 games. It seems as though the developer has abandoned the project. I have checked the developers website and a few forums where he interacted with a few people that had issues with OSx360.

I’ve tried to contact him to see if he would release the source code to the application so that I could continue development and work out all of the bugs, including the ability to verify stealth on the newer released games. However, I have not been able to make any contact so I will be developing a new burning application for Mac OS X that will burn XBOX 360 games.

I’d like to ask my readers to please leave me comments with feature requests, etc…

In the meantime, OSx360 will still properly burn XBOX 360 games even if stealth is not verified. What I would suggest is this, use abgx360 to verify the ISO to ensure it has been properly patched. You can follow my tutorial on how to do that by clicking the link here. http://chris-fletcher.com/2009/06/07/how-to-stealth-patch-xbox-360-games-on-a-mac/

After you’ve finished with abgx360 and everything appears to look good, you can proceed to open OSx360. Follow my tutorial by clicking the link below on how to burn XBOX 360 games using OSx360.

http://chris-fletcher.com/2009/06/05/how-to-burn-xbox-360-games-on-a-mac/

You’ll want to follow the tutorial step by step, here’s the exception, If everything checked out fine in abgx360 but you are seeing stealth not verified in OSx360 then you must make a minor change to the configuration.

  • Configuration
  • Burn Options Pane
  • Uncheck Require Stealth Verification

 

OSx360 - Configuration - Uncheck Stealth

OSx360 - Configuration - Uncheck Stealth

After you’ve made the configuration changes you can proceed to burn your game. I have been able to this without any problems, but don’t blame me if this ends up producing coasters for you.

Just wanted to mention again that I will be developing a new burning application for Mac OS X to burn XBOX 360 games and urge anyone reading this blog to submit any type feature requests.

The goal of the application will be to mimic OSx360 in that you can open an ISO it will verify stealth, dmi, pfi, etc… and allow you to burn the game. I’d like to try and keep it as simple as possible but will consider all feature requests.

That’s it and thanks for reading.

    David, got your message, thanks for the info. I was already aware of iBurn and that it makes use of growisofs. I am already working on the application, and I am using growisofs as well as a command line version of abgx360.

    All will be bundled in a nice GUI so that .iso and .000 files can be opened and be verified and burned just by clicking a few buttons. The current state of the application is pre-alpha, meaning its working but I’m testing and working out bugs as well as making it look pretty.

    When the application is released it will be Alpha and I’m hoping to receive lots of feedback with any bugs that are encountered as well as additional feature requests.

    Keep checking back for updates. I’ll add a new post when I have the application done.

    i am really happy that you are creating a new application to burn xbox 360 games. at the moment i’m using osx360 but i just got the new Fight Night Round 4 RF XBOX360-CCCLX version and i put it into osx 360 and it only failed on the pfi file. I burnt it anyways do you think i’m safe to play it online, and will you be creating abgx360 for ppc mac computers? because at the moment abgx 360 is only for intel macs.

    Thanks in advance.

  4. Chris says:

    So… I can’t say with a 100% certainty but all signs point to the Stealth being valid on that particular release of Fight Night, so you should be safe, but like I said I can’t be sure and definitely wouldn’t stake my life on it.

    The issue with abgx360 only working on Intel has to do with the Endianness of the architecture. While x86 uses little endian, ppc uses big endian. What this means is basically the way the bytes are stored ( reversed byte order ).

    So to make a program like abgx360 work on ppc would be quite a task. It would probably be easier if I could understand more of the source code but as it stands, my new burning application will only work on Intel Macs running OS X 10.5. After I get some feedback for the application, bug reports, etc… I will look more into developing a universal app.

    Hi Chris,

    Great what you are doing ! I’m sure a lot of Mac users will appreciate your work. I know I will.
    Do I understand correctly you are integrating abgx360 in your new version of OSx360?

    This was the first feature request that popped into my mind, great to have stealth check etc.
    in a single application ; )
    Another one is perhaps to make it possible to not only burn 360 ISO’s but just any ISO.

    BR, Bart

    Yes I am planning on integrating the autofix functionality of abgx360 into my new version of ISOx360. In regards to burning any type of ISO, I don’t think I will be implementing this feature into ISOx360 but perhaps develop a new application similar to imgburn but for OS X

    Crud – I just burnt my first game and it coastered with osx360.

    It failed to finish it properly somehow. In the preferences there are two “methods”:
    1. Apple DiscRecording.Framework
    2. growisof

    I picked the first one which is the default, should I have picked the other?

    I am posting this comment because I am having serious issues with abgx. I have been following your tutorial, but once I hit the launch button in abgx…nothing happens. I have tried waiting it out, re-launching the app, and I still don’t get any type of output screen or terminal output. Is there something that I am doing wrong, or is there an update I am missing to run abgx properly? I would truly appreciate any help I can get…

    Hey Chris.
    I`m tryingo to burn a Blazblue ISO but I`m having problems. Everytime I burn it and put it on my console to play There’s only a white screen with the Xbox360 logo on it, and it looks like it was a DVD movie…
    The thing is on osx360 it fails stealthcheck, but abgx360 says everything is fine (only green lines). So I burned it anyway, but then it won`t play… Also I tried burning it with iburn360, but same story.

    So I don’t know what to do do… Can you help me please?
    I have no idea where the problem is, the iso, my console, etc…

    Thanks

    Hey Chris,

    I have to tell you that your ISOx360 is fantastic. I am pretty sure that it will become the reference in Xbox360 burning software for mac. I tried to burn a .000 extension ISO with osx360 and was imposible. Fortunately I found ISOx360 and it worked great!

    I am going to recommend it to all my friends.

    Have you consider to make it compatible with .dvd extensions? it would be good.

    Keep the fantastic work.

    Best wishes from Spain

  19. Chris says:

    Beatleg Thanks for the kind words. I’ve been thinking about adding support for .dvd files, but all the dvd file does is tell the software what the layerbreak should be and since all of the XBOX 360 games currently use the same layer break and ISOx360 has the layer break automatically set, I didn’t see it necessary to add an option for .dvd files.

    If you want you can add that to the forum on ISOx360.com as a feature request.

    Thanks,

    Chris

  20. Beatleg says:

    Yes Chris, I think you’re right with that. If the layer break is automatically set it is not necessary .dvd support at all.

    Hey Chris,

    I tried running magnacarta 2 on abgx, it says it is stealth patched but the verification failed? Should I burn the game and play it anyway or should I wait till it is verified? If any game isn’t verified but says it is stealth patched, is it safe to run?

    Thanks.

    Platano,

    It’s a safe bet that it hasn’t been correctly patched, if the game wasn’t added to the abgx database you would be getting an entirely different message. I would try to download a different copy of the ISO and delete the one you have.

    Hello Chris.

    Thanks for making the app for us Mac users. I have tried OSX360 but had nothing but failures with verbs no less. I would take the same ISO and burn in imgburn, and it would play just fine. Could be that OSX360 don’t like my LiteOn drive.

    I am in the process of downloading your app and will try my first burn on it. I will let you know how it goes.

    It would also be nice if you did work on a mac imgburn as I see you mention.

    Hey Chris,
    I have similar problems alike Felipe in a previous post. The .iso passes all verifications in abgx, (all green) but once i drag to osx360 it fails (ie stealth checks and pfi=invalid); I have 1.61 firmware on a samsung drive. I went ahead and burned anways and it came up as a dvd with the big xbox logo. I even tried the activate.iso to boot, just in case..but didn’t work also. I’m wondering if it’s the original .iso file, eventhough it passed everything in abgx. I’ll try and dl another but if you have suggesetions, it’d be appreciated!

    Hi,
    I just wanted to stop by to say that I developed OSx360. Due to my fathers death, loss of my job and everything else that went wrong in my life, I had to suddenly stop developing the software. I still am broke but have decided to continue development of OSx360 since I am still broke as hell.

    I will probably just rely on abgx360 for the stealth checks since it seems to stay current and the checks that OSx360 were rudimentary at best.

    The website should be back up soon and I will try to have an update as soon as possible. Next step after that will probably be a full re-write so stay tuned. Updates will be posted at http://www.nukedsoftware.com/

    PS: Why did you blatantly rip off my software?

    Wolfienuke,

    Happy to see that you are picking up development for OSx360 again. Relying on abgx360 to do stealth checking is probably the smartest way to go. I wasn’t ripping off your software I was simply providing everyone with an alternative since stopped developing yours. I developed ISOx360 in my spare time and I am not nor will I ever be charging for it. When I first started the development of ISOx360 I tried tracking you down to see if you might want to join forces and develop further 360 software for the Mac together. I’m still up for that if you are.

    Anyway, sorry to hear about your dad and your job, hopefully things will start looking better for you.

    Davey,

    Does abgx say that stealth failed or is it OSx360 or ISOx360? If abgx says everything is fine, then you should be ok to burn.

    Hope that helps.
