The Maximus Lizard 360 is the very latest offering from Maximus in Xbox 360 flashing tools. It’s safe to say that the 360 Lizard is a ground breaking tool for the flashing community. For a long time now the process of key retrieval and flashing of 360 drives required a variety of hardware which at times could be confusing and have problems on various PC setups, with the Maximus Lizard 360 those days are over. The very first and most powerful feature of the device is that it converts SATA to USB, this means you no longer need to have a VIA VT6421A SATA card, nor do you need to connect your Xbox 360 drive to a PC for the flashing process. This eliminates the problems people have had with driver conflicts, PC’s hanging and more.
Now all that needs to be done is the Maximus 360 Lizard connects to your Xbox 360 drive directly, using the onboard LCD display and navigation buttons you can select the options you need, such as to retrieve the key, or flash the drive and more. Because the PC has been taken out of the key retrieval & flashing process, there is no need to worry about those problems associated with PC conflicts that could cause anything from I/O pots not to display, PC hanging during the flashing process, or the drive not displaying in Jungle flasher, also you will no longer need a dedicated PC rig setup just for drive flashing. Now it’s a simple case of using the Maximus Lizard 360 to first retrieve the key from the drive, which can be sent to the PC directly via USB and using a software GUI to save the dummy.bin or you can get the 360 Lizard to store the dummy.bin onto a USB flash drive, then you just need to put that dummy.bin into your PC and use a program like Jungle Flasher to imbed that key into which ever firmware you want and save on the USB stick, then use the Maximus Lizard 360 to flash the custom firmware back to the drive.
Now there are some features for the 360 Lizard that have not been announced and also add-on hardware, when news of these become available we will be updating this page. One of the massive features / add-on’s that has just been announced is the Scorpion add-on board, this little add-on is going to be a god sent for end users that are wanting to flash their own Lite-on 83 v2 or 93 drives as it means you no longer have to cut tracks on these model drives or rebuild the cut tracks by soldering wires or installing and soldering in a rebuild board such as the LT Switch v1.5. That’s right you have not read wrong, the new Scorpion add-on for the Maximus Lizard means you will no longer have to cut traces or solder on these drives, this is a massive leap forward and Maximus was the very first to achieve it.
One feature Maximus has confirmed is that the 360 Lizard will be able to read and write to the new Xbox 360 Slim Lite-On drives Model DG-16D4S F/W Ver 9504, be it there is no CFW available for these drives. When there is you can be assured that the Maximus 360 Lizard will be able to read and write to those drives. There is still no exact info on if these drives will require an MRA method, once again we will update this page as more info becomes available. The Maximus Lizard flashing tool is really going to make the whole process of key retrieval & flashing drives that much simpler, it will now even be possible for mobile tech’s to come out to your home and do a 360 drive replacement or custom firmware flash on the spot, because now they will be able to just use a laptop and not require a whole PC rig to do the job.

This is the new Xecuter LT Switch v1.6 - the latest version in the #1 selling Xecuter LT Switch range.
Xecuter has designed a simple switch for all the Liteon drives that enables firmware full read/write. They have also included an ON/OFF Led to show correct operation when switching to 0x72 vendor mode.
Now Includes MULTI-R Function. After the discovery that a small number of Liteon drives would not dump the fw with a 20 ohm resistor - but required an 18 Ohm or 22 Ohm resistor - so you can now select between 18, 20 and 22 Ohms ! (Default should be set to 20 Ohms - this will work 99% of the time)
The installation is very simple and takes about 5 minutes if you have some small experience with a soldering iron. It has been tested with the latest Jungle Flasher 0.1.73. All Liteon drive versions have been tested with 100% Success (Including the troublesome Winbond IC). There is no need to remove the LT Switch after it has been installed - simply switch to normal mode and you are good to go. Even if you have to upgrade in the future - you don't have to touch the switch again !
Don't be fooled by more expensive copycat products. This is the only solution you need to do a very simple job. Remember this product follows the K.I.S.S engineering principle (KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID) :)

The Trident MX tool will unlock Slim Lite-on DVD drives (DG-16D4S) that come with a Macronix internal SPI Flash. Until recently locked drives were only found in the firmware’s 0225, 0401 and 1071, but the latest dashboard update (2.0.13599) has locked the 9504 drives with 0272 firmware. The Trident MX is a MUST have in your arsenal of weapons.
Combined with the POWER of Maximus Lizard (Gecko 1.16 and above) and in a few days supported by Jungleflasher, this is the perfect tool to do the job professionally and without hassle.
Forget about tricking/spoofing the drive with unsafe methods of picking and choosing different resistors; We have a 0 to 100 ohm trimmer installed. There is no need to run a complex application to do the Macronix Unlock - Maximus Lizard does the magic for you.
The Trident MX is a tool designed for pro-modders but will be loved be even by the newest Modder!!
Note: This tool works only with Macronix SPI Flash. (For Winbond we are still developing a proper and safe solution to be announced at another time.)
