    The new version of firmware for HITACHI's was released (XBINS)...

    Was reading the text file and it says support for ALL versions

    of HITACHI's...

    I am a little confused... I have a v78 and had to use Maximus Toolbox to flash up to this point... Could someone confirm if the new firmware can be used on a v78 or if the new version for the v78 is still to come?

    Any help would be appreciated... Thanks JLF24

    cool.. i just flashed mine

    in the beginning it showed me three times a E64 error, but now it seems ok.
    could you report back if you have E64 errors as well. My flash went excellent, no problems.. and my 360 plays games in between this E64 errors.

    It doesn't FULLY support 79's yet. It'll patch them, but it won't read/write to the drive yet. Also, reading through other forums, it seems people who are using an sata to usb are having problems.

    There is a second Hitachi firmware available now. It's C4EVA_XTRM-HITACHI_v2_4_Stealth .

    I'd be willing to bet there's going to be more updates to the new Hitachi firmwares within the next few days/week. For those of you who can stand to wait, you might just want to do that to avoid having to reflash every couple of days.

    OPA just updated the new Hitachi firmware (released yesterday) from 3.1 to 3.1b... just like I said might happen in my previous post. And I'm sure more updates are still coming.

    restore.bat to get back to original then flash24s.bat to flash if using C4E's firmware. Same firmware in FW toolbox 3.1 as C4E, just a different method.

    Right here

    I was wrong earlier, the firmware's are different. Both add disc-jitter checking, but C4E's firmware maintains the stealth fw and F900 core. You can use C4E's firmware for all drives except the 0078/0079. You can use FW Toolbox for all hitachi drives but the firmware built in is for the 0078/0079 drives.

    I "think" it's the exact same OPA package just with C4E's new anti disc-jitter.

    But flash the exact same way as OPA packages.
