XBox 360 Wave 4 Firmware Mod

29

Apple iTunes

As many of you may have noticed, Wave 4 games have started surfacing and if you have a previously flashed Lite-On drive with iXtreme 1.51 or lower, you will not be able to play any Wave 4 games.

However, using iXtreme 1.6 together with a special Activation disk, you can play all of the new Wave 4 titles. I have personally tested this and it does work, playing a backup of Tekken 6 as I write this post. I have previously flashed drives for several of my readers, any drive I have previously flashed, was flashed with iXtreme 1.51.

For anyone that has had their drive flashed by me, I am offering a $25.00 firmware update and will also include the activation disk when shipping the drive back. For anyone that has not had their drive flashed by me, I am offering for a limited time a firmware upgrade with activation disk for $30.00. Contact me for instructions.

If you have a drive that has not been modded and would like to play backups then I will continue to offer my services for $50.00 per mod for all Lite-On A0A1, BenQ, and Hitachi Drives.

A second generation of Lite-On Drives has started surfacing, A0A2 83850C. These drives require a different procedure for flashing. I am charging $60.00 for modding these drives. Please check on your drive lid for your HWVer and FWVer.

Note: As of today any drives that are shipped to me for modding will be flashed using iXtreme 1.6. If you would like your drive modded please contact me for more information.

    im curious, i dont know much about all this xbox stuff, my brother has a flashed xbox just got banned but my question is about the new wave 4 games we wanted to know if original (wave 4) would work on modded drives so we went to blockbusters rented tekken 6 brought it home stuck it into the drive (liteon fw 1.6) and it booted straight up so then he ripped the original from disc to pc ran it through abgx and it came up as splitvid 3rd wave then added loads of blue ini files so my question is, is it possible that tekken is a wave 3 game and abgx is patching it to a wave 4 ?

    I can confirm that Tekken 6 is indeed a wave 4 game. From what I understand it has to do with the video partition being a different size.

    yes i know it is supposed to be a wave 4 due to the pfi is larger on the newer games due to the update but the tekken6 we rented ripped then ran through abgx stated splitvid 3rd wave….. so if anyone wants to try it to confirm would be helpful, we in the uk so was a uk retail copy we used

    I’m not sure when the next firmware release for Lite-On drives will be available. I would suggest that until it becomes available that you use firmware 1.6

    I also urge you to stay away from wave 4 games, while you may be able to play these, using the activation disk, it will leave you more open to bans since what the activation disk does is bypass all of the strict stealth checks that are put in place with iXtreme 1.6

    If you must play wave 4 games, sign out of Live and then use the activation disk to load your game. In my opinion its just not worth it. I’d rather wait to play wave 4 on live when iXtreme releases the next firmware update.

    I imagine that 1.61 is similar to 1.51 which does not do any stealth checking, etc… that’s what version 1.6 did. So even using version 1.61, I wouldn’t play wave 4 on live, honestly I wouldn’t even upgrade to 1.61. I would wait for 1.7

    Hope that helps.

    Chris

    Jamie,

    Most likely, you don’t have the latest firmware, although it would help to know what type of drive you have and what firmware is loaded on it.

    I can assure you that the procedure for modding the newer Lite-On drives differs from that of the older ones, for one, there is no probing involved.

    Jamie, as far as I know you shouldn’t get banned if you have the original firmware. If anyone knows any different, feel free to add.

    i suggest everybody waits for IXtreme LT to come out before playing on live if you 1) Have any IXtreme firmware of any version or 2) Have had IXtreme firmware of any version flashed to your xbox drive and then reverted back to the original. Reason is because there is some information lost when you flash it to IXtreme the first time and quite frankly its a bitch to get that info injected back into the firmware. You’re not truly safe on live if you don’t have that info injected to the original firmware. Being so close to the release of LT, it would surly suck if you got banned now.

    Nate,

    The activation disc is a disc that needs to be inserted before you insert the wave 4 game, you put the disc in, wait for it to come up with the white screen and then take the disc out, wait for the dashboard to come back and then insert your wave 4 game.

    yes it does require i slightly diffrent approach to modding but not an awful lot of diffrence, why the extra charge? the 1st lite-on is more hassle than the 83850C or any other drive! im in the UK and i do all drives for the same price with a 20min turnaround time when people bring ther box to me, if they mail it i send it back same day as i recieved it. iv been modding consoles since the early ps1 days

  25. Chris says:

    Mike,

    I agree that the 1st Lite-On can be more of a hassle than the new ones. Unfortunately my pricing is set because, well that’s what I set it at. It’s no different than if you purchase something at Sears vs. Wal-Mart, everyone sets their own pricing and I haven’t had anyone complain as to the quality of service I provide.

    On a side note, I will no longer be offering modding services, for one because I just don’t have the time anymore and secondly it seems that everyone is getting banned lately so its not worth it in my opinion. I will however continue to provide tutorials for mods and will continue to provide software to aid in the modding process.

    Good luck with your business, I wish you nothing but success.

    Chris

    Hey Chris,

    I had a samsung drive modded on my elite that i bought two years ago but of course i got red rings and when i sent it in to them for the warranty repair they send me back some other unit with a lite on drive. I’m not sure if it’s the old one or the new one but i’d like to mod it. Also i want to buy a new unit with the more dependable chipset and i’m assuming that means the latest lite-on drive as well. Can you point me to the instructions to mod the newest lite-on drive? Also I might want to buy the probe from you instead of attempting to build it.
