From the NFO File: After a long development and testing process we give you the first official release of the iXtreme LT
• Supports all Liteon Drives (74850, 83850V1, 83850V2, 93450)
• Totally re-written code optimised for minimal patching
• Whole banks of firware now untouched
• New Drive response timing engine accurately mimics original drive timings
• Full disc stealth used by default
• Waveless booting , disc images are assumed to be correct!
• Split-Vid used as default
Warning! Ensure all disc images are checked with abgx as LT assumes all stealth/ss/pfi/dmi is correct. Disc images must also be splitvid and preferred SS v2
Warning! Lt will not save you from being banned if console is already flagged by using a previous firmware or non-stealth discs
It is also advisable to apply all system updates before flashing with LT. All future console system updates (not game updates) must be applied with caution

This is great news! A lot of people have been waiting for the release and now have gotten it. As for the security issues, I don't plan on logging in until actual user experiences provide a very consistent analysis of what Microsoft has to say about this exploit. Although I never really found activate.iso a hassle, I guess it just resumes the normal function of insert and play
Hey, any idea if the LT FW will be released for the hitachi drive as well ? As i have an XBOX with the Hitachi drive. I haven't modded it yet. But then if modding it is going to make it a banned console, I dont want to do it. LT seems to be the best bet.
