Maximus - 360 FIRMWARE TOOLBOX for Windows Ver 2.0
---------------------------------------------------------
WHATS NEW ON V2.0:

   - Corrected: Lookup of keys on GDR-3120L V78 because
                they dont have same location on all drives.

   - Added:     Show of the "hacker string" that identifies 
                hacked versions. (Samsung on FFE0, Hitachi 
                on 37F0) In case of 512 KB roms will only
                show for bank 0

   - Added:     Option to quick view the key database

   - Added:     Bigger "Encrypt/Decrypt" button for those that 
                have not been using this save-time feature


WHAT IS IT ?
---------- 
   A graphical tool to handle several common dvd-drive firmware
   tasks. (yep, another one !)
 
   You can copy-paste the keys from one firmware to another not 
   matter if they are different vendor (samsung or hitachi)
   and not matter the version of the FW

   It is kinda annoying having going to MS-DOS to do firmcrypt 
   (encrypt or decrypt) operations, or having to open the file with
   an hexeditor to know if it is crypted or not, or to copy-paste
   the keys.


FEATURES:
---------
 - Allow copy-paste of the keys between firmare not matter if
   they are crypted or not or if they are different vendor or
   even better, not matter wich version of Fw (46,47,59,78 etc)
 - Do common firmware tasks with a mouse click
 - Supports Samsung and Hitachi firmwares All Versions 
 - Shows Vendor, ROM version and also if its CRYPTED or NOT
 - Allow crypt or decrypt the files
 - Shows the 16 byte Keys not matter if the file is Crypted
 - Allows adding of TAGS to a KEY like Owner, Serial No, Date.
   (Dont worry, the tags are not saved onto firmware file)
 - Fully Integrated with Windows Context Menu (like winrar)
 - Fully Supports 512 KB firmwares (2 banks)


INSTALLATION:
---------------
 - Unzip contents on the folder you like
 - Open application and go to Options->Enable Windows Context Menu
 - Close application


HOW TO USE:
------------------
 - To open a file you can just on Windows Explorer do Right Click and
   choose "Open with Firmware Toolbox", or you can first launch the 
   application and do File-Open menu or simply drag a file from your
   browser to the application.

 - To encrypt or decrypt a file just open it as above and click the
   button encrypt or decrypt.

 - To replace a key just type it or copy-paste it into the key
   textbox and click on "Replace Key"

 - To set or replace Tag Data just type it into the Tag Data Section
   "Save Tag Data".  This Tag Data will be show every time you open
   a file that have the same key.  Useful to identify an Owner's Key


KNOWN ISSUES:
--------------
If the context menu is not shown when you right-click over a file just
open the application and do Options-Disable Windows Menu and then
Options-Enable Windows Context Menu.
