 XFlasher 360 0.75 by trancy
------------------------------

In the past there have been many users who have had problems when it comes to flashing their drive 
under Windows (Drive-bricking, Windows freezes, etc.) so I have decided to program a DOS-based tool 
that automatically does the following:

  Copying of the DVD-Drive Firmware
  Spoofing/patching of the Firmware
  Flashing the DVD-Drive with iXtreme 

The Tool: XFlasher completes the entire Flash-Procedure (see Figure 1). For this the original firmware 
as well as the the files iXtreme.bin, org.bin, key.bin, identify.bin, inquiry.bin or dummy.bin are 
placed in separate folders. Note: Not all of the files mentioned above are created for every drive model.
DVD drives from Lite-On, BenQ, and Samsung/Toshiba are supported. It is not possible to flash Hi-tachi 
drives under DOS at the moment, if this should change in the future then newer versions of Xflasher 
will most probably be released with the added support.


Essential Hardware
------------------
1) A PC with SATA and COM Ports (a COM port is only necessary for Lite-On drives). 
   A PCI-SATA card also does the trick. Boards with VIA or INTEL chipsets are recommended
2) A USB-Boot-Stick with DOS and the content from the XFlasher 360 file	
3) iXtreme firmware for Lite-On (ix15Lite.bin), BenQ (ix15Benq.bin) and Samsung/Toshiba (ix15Sam.bin) drives 
   (gets copied to the Firmware folder)
4) A RS232 converter for the Lite-On drive (i.e. 360 Xtractor Tool)


INSTALLATION:
-------------
Warning: This will completely format your USB-drive!!!
1) Open the files "Install and format USB.bat" and select the drive letter of your USB-drive.
   All required files will be copied to your USB-drive, this will make it bootable.
2) Boot your PC from the USB-drive.
