iXtreme 1.51 is OUT for ALL DRIVES (including Hitachi's) !!!!!!

As title,

For those who wanted to play games with the new video partition that contains the new NXE update, you now can.

Thanks go to C4E and team for getting it out so quickly.

You can get it in the usual places.

The word is that the next firmware release is purely to allow you to use your 360 drives to read your originals to make your own backups, in the same way a Kreon drive currently does. This update will not be needed unless you wish to use a 360 drive for this purpose on your PC in a windows environment, it will not contain any iXtreme enhancements over 1.51

Now I am sure I should be interested in this as I want to Mod an xbox. (modded the original one a few times, so sure I'll get my head round the 360)

Basically does it mean that you can extract the games to your pc, using the drive from your own xbox ?

Is there not a way yet to rip them to the hard drive and then use a "backup" to instigate the xbox into playing the game from the HD ?

Cheers for the info dudey - + rep

You can use back-ups in the same way as originals, I copy my most played games to the 360's hard drive and use the backup to let me play it.


Not sure I see the point in hooking a 360 dvd drive to a pc each time you want to rip a game, with a kreon you can install it to your pc and leave it there and £20 is hardly going to break the bank!

Do you still need the xbox to be modded tho ?

In theory by the looks of the due firmware yes. Much easier to buy a kreon flashed or one capable of being flashed dvd rom, I bought mine for £20.99 ready to go for the pc it installs like a normal dvd-rom. No need to keep moving your 360 drive then.

yes, the 1.6 is only for people that want to use a 360 DVD drive to rip their own games, Kreon drives are readily available, and do the job very well.

A 360 running 1.51 is no more "detectable" than one running 1.6 when released.

Oh, and to rip your games with the 360 drive, you will of course need to open the 360 and take out the drive every time. Unless you have a spair 360 drive doing nothing which in essence, the firmware for ripping games with them has always been around, but was previously either ripping OR iXtreme, now he is just merging the two.

All lite-on ixtreme owners that do not have their firmware backed up, will need it reading again with the special tool, something that may cost more than just a re-flash.

I just upgraded my sammy and benq.

i still have the very first extreme firmware from the beginning, last game i played was skate 2 and that worked fine , is there an update to the games lately that needs my firmware upgrading? i dont play online at all

Kung fu, that is fine mate, the games should all boot

Might just wait for 1.6, also note abgx v1.0.0 is out too

so you intend to use the drive to make your own backups, taking it out of your 360 every time to do so?

I just like to have the latest firmware without having to open it up twice. Is what you said 100% confirmed?

Sorry haven't been keeping up - what is the crack with 1.51 vs 1.6? Anything worth waiting for?
