Making your iXtreme Burner for PC-MAX Burning of XGD3 Disks
Tutorial has just hit from Team Xecuter on the process of creating your new iXtreme Burner to burn XGD3 games all the way to 100%. Including the extra 130 MB that doesn’t normally fit. Defeating the Forza 4 CIV checks and making online gaming with back-ups as safe as can be by burning all of the data from the retail disk onto a DVD +R DL (Verbatim recommended by C4Eva).
How to make yours!
Firstly you need a compatible DVD Writer the range is listed below:
- LiteOn iHas124-XX B
- LiteOn iHas224-XX B
- LiteOn iHas324-XX B
- LiteOn iHas424-XX B
- LiteOn iHas524-XX B
- LiteOn iHas624-XX B
(The XX varies –the importantpart is the firmware version B: denotes chipset)
THIS TUTORIAL SHOWS THE PROCESS FOR 324! ENSURE YOU USE CORRECT UPGRADE.EXE AND CORRECT FW FOR YOUR DRIVE!
Then of course you need the Max iXtreme custom Burner firmware for your relevant model. You wil lalso require the drive upgrade.exe, againensure correct one for your drive! Plus 2 other utility programsfrom
- EEPROM Utility(v6.2.0)
- Flash Utility(v6.0.1)
Firstly –connect your drive (normal onboard SATA should be more than adequate) and you can also use X360USB Pro if you wish. Ensure your drive shows in device manager and is listed in windows.
Upgrade Your Drive
Now run the upgrade.exe relevant to your drive. (Ensure it is for YOUR iHas drive before you continue) Click “Yes” Button
Once complete it will ask you to reboot the PC (do so before you continue!)
BackUp your Current Firmware and EEPROM
For safety –you should backup your current drive firmware and EEPROM. Now open the EEPROM Utility – Ensure the correct Drive(iHas). Press the “Backup Eeprom” button. Click “Save”. Once finished click “Exit”.
Open the Flash Utility. Ensure correct drive (iHas) is showing. Click the “Read Flash” Button (should already have automatically selected the 2MB Option). Click “Save”
Writing the Max iXtreme Firmware!
With the Flash Utilitystillopen (ensure iHas selected). Click “WriteFlash” Button. Click “Yes” Button! Navigate and select the correct Firmware for your drive model.(Very important). Click “Open” Button. If you are 100% sure you have chosen correct file: Click “Yes” Button.
Wait for the flash to finish
