    That is the question!

    whats the general consensus here about this?

    if i have Ixtreme 1.4 on my drive do i REALLY need to flash it to 1.5?[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    If you have the means to do it, you might aswell.

    If you're someone who pays to have it done, then leave it.

    I would assume that its best to be on the highest iXtreme firmware. Like Omgporn said if you can do it yourself easily then you should do it since it increases the security measures of the firmware.

    Enhanced c/r timing - all drives
    Enhanced disc jitter - all drives
    Enhanced bad angle support - all drives

    whats c/r timing? anyone knows? the rest does not seem that needed if you use "good" rips

    This makes me wonder, if it has been improved - was anything wrong?

    Not that I'm complaining or anything - I'm greatful for all this work given to us for free - it's just that nearly any time ixtreme / c4eva comes up on this board, most people get excited about how perfect it is as well as laughable claims like future proofing. Was just wondering out of interest if there was a flaw with 1.4 or whether 1.5 addresses new checks or something.

    I dont think there is any new checks from an earlier post from omgporn. Just enhancements. But i theory is if it aint broke to fix it

    I'm a little reluctant to upgrade mine. I know upgrading is usually the best course of action but on something like XBL the issue is that we don't know what Microsoft are/can check for. This new firmware might improve things but "could" be easier to detect.

    I don't really play too much on Live any more anyway and when I do they are original disks anyway but all the same - I'll stick with 1.4 for now. I am away for January so when I come back I will see if there have been any issues and re-evalute the situation.

    Surely an upgrade is always the best?! I find I am playing on live more and more recently with the relese of Left for Dead. I never used to play on it before, but I'm addicted to this...bloody brilliant game it is.
