    How to use FIRMTOOL

    By Venomous Fire
    [FONT=&quot] D/L your firmware from Xbins as normal

    Rename your iXtreme benQ file ix15.bin

    Grab your orig.bin and your iXtreme file and firmtool.exe and place them ALL at the location "c:/"
    without quotes.

    Now open up command promt and type "cd c:\" without quotes


    [​IMG]

    Type "firmtool orig.bin ix15.bin" without quotes, ix15.bin is now your hacked firmware.

    Congratulations!!!!

    Note this tutorial used BenQ firmware, but any drives firmware will work

    Why not just use powertoy for xp and open whatever folder you want in cmd from there and do it?

    Then go make a tutorial and YOU explain to people that they need to install something, when all it does is eliminate 2 steps to add 1

    I got the firmware and jungle flasher, and dos flash and i don't see anywhere where it says how to flash a samsung or a benq. I'm having problems with iprep so I need some help on how to get jungle flasher ready/working.

    So all I have to do is backup my original firmware than fowllow these steps making the hacked firmware than just go open it up in a a flashing program and just flash it?
    ****ing gay ... iprep and dosflash gives me the "internal overstacking has caused this session to be halted" error.

    Hello, on the first step to rename the benQ file, when I download from xbins I get the "ixtreme_1.5_benq.rar", do I rename that whole file to "[FONT=&quot]ix15.bin"? Sorry this is my first time. Thanks.

    Nice job with the tut. but is anyone have issues with their new 1.5 firmware? Mine has been wanting to freeze my box and not want to read normal game disks anymore. i sometimes have to take out my HDD and open my drive a couple of times before it starts working right?

    Are there any bugs in 1.5 firmware?
