Maximus - 360 FIRMWARE TOOLBOX for Windows Ver 3.0
---------------------------------------------------------
OFFICIAL TOOL, NOT BAD RIPPED ONE.

WHATS NEW ON V3.0:

   - Added: 	Direct Dumping of GDR3120L drives attached to PC.
                Also features a new RAW memdump wich is not fooled
                by the stealth method on currently hacked drives.
                Even can dump the nasty 78 drives all by software.

   - Added: 	Direct Flashing of Keys, Spoof data and also
                Direct flash of hacked firmwares over all hitachi
                drive models attached to the PC. Even flash the 
                0078FK drives and newer (I hope). So forgot epoxy
                removal for now.
                see video tutorial here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KSSPmAAtMUk

   - Added: 	Option to do a Smart hack on those "Rolling 
                Code" Firmwares like 78 and surely newer ones

   - Added: 	Option to create multibank fw
   - Added: 	Option to split multibank fw
   - Added: 	Option to Spoof a firmware, you can spoof
                a Hitachi XX version to a Hitachi YY version,
                you can even spoof a hitachi Fw to report as
                a samsung drive.
   - Added: 	Option validate checksum, this will allow 
                detect proper and bad dumps before flashing


WHAT IS IT ?
---------- 
   A graphical tool to handle several common dvd-drive firmware
   tasks. This is the better tool you will find.
 
   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

   Allows SMART PATCH for rolling code firmwares (Hitachi 0078) and
   also Direct Flash on all drives, even the nasty 78 drives.

   RAWDUMP does not work fine with SIL chipsets yet, be aware of use 
   the validate checksum feature to avoid bad dumps and bricks. We
   will be working on SIL chipsets later.

   The flasher/restore appears to be rock solid now, also very easy
   to understand, so this could be the base to flash future firmware 
   releases, even on the 78


FEATURES:
---------
 - Direct Dump and Direct Flash over all versions of GDR3120L drives
   even the 0078 FK drives.
 - Allow copy-paste of the keys between firmare not matter if

   even better, not matter wich version of Fw (46,47,59,78 etc)

 - Supports Samsung and Hitachi firmwares All Versions 
 - Shows Vendor, ROM version and also if its CRYPTED or NOT

CHANGE LOG

                they dont have same location on all drives.

                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
