I rewrote a big part of the code in order to integrate a maximum of Options (about 200). Some functions was found on Internet forums, www.Gueux.net (http://gueux.be/), www.xbox-scene.com, www.BURNINGBOX.fr.st, other functions was taken from the tHc* dashboard. They are owned by their respective authors and I will not take any credits for them !
