edit:now posted over at xbox scene too.
Tried submitting this through the news form twice but I got undelivered mail back to my inbox so gathered I should post this here.
New firmware by C4EVA is to hopefully be released this weekend which is undetectable and should not get you banned. Of course it is questionable, but seems legit.
Translation of the website by wildsoldier (you get the idea)
Good night commodore4eva, is a dream to speak with you.
Thank you very much.
The users are asking if the old Xtreme copies will work with iXtreme.
Xtreme Online will not take backups without stealth, only disc with stealth, PFI and DMI will run.
Do you already know which is the real reason of the bans?
The bans is a manual process, logs and logs are watched. It takes time.
Manual? What is what they verify exactly?
Many things. Timming and startings without reader, like when you flasheas the reader with the power supply of the console, and some more.
So when we flash the XBOX360 with Xtreme Online we will not be able to do it with the power source of the console?
Correct. Or to do it with a console already banned.
On the other hand, will Xtreme Online will be completely secure?
Does Xtreme Online will be available for Hitachi readers?
Will also be available for the readers with firmware v79?
All the Hitachi, including the 79, but still would be necessary to flash it via hardware.
What happens with BenQ readers?
The version for BenQ will be available after the others, almost all the work was finished before the bans began.
Will be safe for the users to flash with Xtreme Online if they previously flash with others versions of Xtreme and they have not been banned?
We do not know that, it could happen or it couldnt happen. It could be too late if the user is already in the logs. But when the drive is flashed with Xtreme Online, it would be possible to called Microsoft complaining that the ban was not justified so they dont banned you console and there is no need to buy a new one.
So thanks to Xtreme Online we have a little hope for the ban to be removed?
Aparently yes they reescan the console if you complain to the SAT.
Briefly, how does the Xtreme Online works?
Xtreme Online will emulate the exact speed and timings of the original games, and will protect the users to execute backups stealth not avoiding its execution.
We must have some precaution with Xtreme Online?
The users must have well-taken care of not to flash the drive using the power supply of the unbann console. They should not play games before they leave the region.
Thank you very much by your time.
Something that to add?
YES look for release this weekend.
