TX and C4eva Defeat All 360 Slim Drives with 1 PCB & 1 FW (LT Ultimate)!

TX and C4eva Defeat All 360 Slim Drives with 1 PCB & 1 FW (LT Ultimate)!

The wraps have finally come off what Team Xecuter recently teased as "The Lord of the Hacks One Xbox 360 Drive to Rule Them All". The surprise is a new Unlocked DVD Replacement PCB universal for all Xbox 360 Slim DVD drives (Lite-On DG-16D4S 9504/0272/0225/0401/1071, Lite-On DG-16D5S 1175/1532, Hitachi DLN10N 0500/0502).


In addition to this astounding feat, and equally amazing, is c4eva's creation of a new firmware in the Lite Touch line, dubbed "LT Ultimate", or "LTU" for short. LT Ultimate has been developed specifically for use with the new Slim DVD PCB, and is safe for use on Xbox LIVE and when performing dashboard SystemUpdates. Unlike previous firmwares, LT Ultimate boasts an incredible new feature that allows it to function without needing a previous full fw dump; only the DVD key is required!

LT Ultimate will initially be released as v1.0, and consists of a single firmware file, containing all the necessary code to function with each of the Slim DVD drives, and JungleFlasher handling the selection and programming of it for the appropriate drive model and firmware version.

Everybody thought it was a lost cause, but not anymore. C4Eva has announced on his IRC channel that he is now working to develop LT+3.0 firmware to Hitachi DLN10N

As always there is no ETA but it should take some months until we get any update about DLN10N LT+ firmware.


We are still waiting the official beta test for Lite-On 1175 LT+3.0 that C4Eva announced to be done and in testing stage.

According to C4eva's recent post on his IRC channel, the LT+3.0 Firmware for the Lite-On 1175 is complete.

[2012-10-05 08:45AM UTC] LT+ V3.0 for 1175 complete, rechecking code!

The firmware is now being tested, so we can expect an official soon.

The Lite-On 1175 is currently the most common drive on the recent Xbox 360 Slim, however future consoles will probably have the new 1532 drive.

*UPDATE* [2012-10-06 04:48PM UTC]: A tenth update has been released as part of the Fall 2012 Xbox LIVE Update Public Beta program. This latest update brings the Xbox 360 dashboard/kernel to version 2.0.16197.0. Backups continue to work fine under LT+ and xk3y, both offline and on Xbox LIVE.

Corona and Lite-On 1175 Inside Special Edition White 4GB Kinect Bundle

Corona and Lite-On 1175 Inside Special Edition White 4GB Kinect Bundle
Published by: X_Splinter on Monday, April 02, 2012
Tagged: Hardware, Homebrew, Xbox 360,

Just a quick note for those of you contemplating picking up the new "Casper" White Xbox 360 Special Edition 4GB Kinect Family Bundle and wondering what motherboard revision and drive it has inside.

Although we had an inkling of hope that, being 4GB models, they might come with older Trinity boards, it came as no surprise that they in fact contain a Corona board and the Lite-On DG-16D5S 1175 drive. Also worth mentioning is that the packaging has changed compared to older bundles insofar as there no longer being a flap/window to reveal the serial number.

With the team's current progress, it won't be long until you'll be able to fw flash and/or RGH these.

Details of the unit we received are as follows:

"Casper" White Xbox 360 Special Edition 4GB Kinect Family Bundle
  • Corona Motherboard
  • Lite-On DG-16D5S-11B, FW ver. 1175, HW ver. A0A0
  • MFR Date 2012-01-31
  • Lot 1205x
  • Team FDOU
