TIP: For those testing the DMS Team's cracked release of USBeXtreme/USBAdvance, forum member b081 offers the following advice for speeding up PC to USB HDD transfers...
A tip how to speed up installs significantly with Windows XP: My Computer->Properties->Hardware->Device Manager->Disk Drives->(external one here)->Properties->Policies->Optimize for performance. Speed ups from 1MBps to about 10-15MBps, but do not forget to unplug the device the proper way (that is Unplug or eject hardware...)
EDIT: Thanks to the work of kiyo, the identity of the cracker has been confirmed to be none other than former homebrew coder and now DMS4 coder and resident code theif sjeep/filterX. It has long been known since the fraudulent interview given by maxconsole that he has had a longstanding feud with success. You can view his interesting statement in this hidden text packed inside the elf
It seems some people well attuned to the DMS team have posted some interesting info about a supposed cracked release of USBExtreme by none other than us.
Although we did not actually crack this and dont dont even want to bother assuming who it was(its obvious) or if its real. Dont really know why anyone would bother though going through all this trouble to "frame?" us for cracking such an inferior product. But, Honest to goodness, if a release wasnt imminent we would have eventually cracked it ourselves. Success doesnt deserve the money. They have cheated and stole their way through the scene for a long time now. Even stooping as low as selling pressed naplink discs with the messages "Hacked by Paul" in it. Pressed Naplink News
There has also be some internal contraversy and wait to see what modules are used in USBExtreme. As many sceners know, there is no freely available usb driver for the ps2. The one contained in naplink is strictly for non commercial use and the other is well.. from sony. I guess this release from "us" will finally give curious the opportunity to have a look at this and confirm their suspicions for themselves, If infact its legit.
you can discuss the release at ongoing Forum Thread and of course, if you encounter any issues Feel free to drop by our HDD forums if you have any questions or problems relating to this release, we'll be happy to help.
There is also some interesting news from the toxicOS front. It seems that coder/cracker Kiyo is actively working on dumping and cracking toxicOS for those that do not have a DMS4 modchip! You can view his posts here
