    It looks as if Microsoft's efforts to ban all those 360's has made hackers pretty angry! According to reports, C4eva has a new firmware in the works with all features of it indistinguisable from the original so there will be NO MORE bans!

    <blockquote>4Eva announced he's working on a new firmware on IRC:
    "[c4eva] new fw in dev/test - ixtreme LT (Lite Touch) - more efficient , minimal patching , all aspects of fw indistinguisable from orig, no more bans, No ETA!"

    We do not have more details atm.
    As far as we know the 3 'test boxes' C4Eva has running (see here) are still fine (not banned).</blockquote>

      I don't think it's the firmware itself that is detectable. I don't know how any of that stuff works, but I think MS has found a way to send an inquiry to the drive. Depending on the drive's behavior, MS can tell if the firmware is original or not. That's my best guess so far.
      Either way, it's always a cat and mouse game. It seems that this time, Microsoft has been flagging consoles for months in preparation for this pre-holiday ban.

      At this point, I'm sure you are correct. There is no way that a million people were this careless and played games early, or had bad stealth on their disks. They banned 3% of all consoles sold, which can't be much lower than the total number of modded consoles. I don't know what the rate of modded consoles are on any system, but I can't imagine that the Xbox was that high because of the high risk and complications involved in modding the system.

      lol.. Seriously..
      I swear some of you read only what you want just so you can ***** about something.

      MOst of you dont leave the house do you?
      In what way was I complaining about people pirating games?

      My point was that maybe this will help the actual Homebrew scene along rather then people getting pissed because they got banned for playing stolen games then threatening people lives like the xbox enforcment team.

      Some of you are just so god damn brain dead I seriously weep for the future

      I haven't been ban yet. All the games i play online don't have the 4th wave crap. All my friends and people i know all got ban and all played games with the 4 wave security. abgx released there new version to check 4 wave games but i'm not too sure that you can be safe with that. So im just going to play all wave 4 offline. Its funny that the new wave took out so many.

      It's not about wave 4. Myself and a few others I know didn't play wave 4 games. You should check if you've been flagged.

      yeah no wave 4 for me. i'd be interested in seeing what firmwares where banned. of the people i know the only person not banned has a benq with 1.51. everyone i know with 1.6 or 1.61 got the ban hammer. and before i get flammed i'm not saying i know anything i'm just tossing out what has happened to me and the people that i modded.

      There's a ongoing compilation at xbox-scene of people filling out firmware, drive type, and other things.

      Not actually true, my friends all had 1.51 and 1.6 and got banned. I'm using a 1.61 and haven't got banned but i didn't play any wave 4 games online but who knows honestly.

      For a start here's the public logs from a modded xbox 360 http://xbins.org/xblive/

      Can't trust them at all some of these people have been caught out, often the ones you find on xbox.com claiming they've done nothing wrong.

      There are so many factors and issues here its easy to blame the firmware when we have too much/not enough information and plenty of misinformation, its a flawed scene. I doubt we'll ever know without c4eva saying something which is why its just not worth the risk.

      I'm also starting to believe ms has been preparing for this for some time now. Seems ms wasn't playing "cat and mouse" with hackers, but something more along the lines of chess, and this is starting to look like checkmate. I'm sure that hackers will find a way, but a lot of people are going to be more cautious now about modding. If you can afford to get yourself 2 360s then that's probably the only way to go about it safely.

      This fight is unlike sony vs the psp scene.

      Well he obviously made some modifications to the firmware to make sure only stealthed backups were booted, but it seems these addons backfired and MS was able to use them to detect the firmware. I think he is just getting rid of these "add on" features, so now it is up to the user to use stealth backups and not the firmware to decide if it is stealth or not.

      i was still running 1.6 on my lite on never played a wave 4 game either i was waiting for 1.7 to come,i also had a legit copy of mw2 granted got it a few days early.funny thing is got my copy last friday got banned on saturday!!seems rather funny that consoles getting banned just as mw2 comes out.
      but there is a silver lining to havin 1.6 now i dont have to get my banned machine reflashed i can just patch all the games to wave 3 and play off line.and yes i have a seperate hdd so no worries there either!!!

      It's only Mate since people can still play copies just fine. They just can't play them online. Checkmate is when they can stop both such as what the PS3 has been able to do (so far).
