Note this is only of use to homebrew users and while older versions needed a dual nand arrangement this one does not (in essence it replaces XBReboot). I would have saved this for the next releases post but it is big news for some so it gets a post just for it. Xbox-scene have reported on an update/fork of freeboot with an eye towards using the 9199 Kernel as a base. Note to those that saw this release earlier today- there seems to have been a quick repack/update and version bump without a changelog (more on that as it becomes known). NFO for the release: http://www.xbins.org/nfo.php?file=xboxnfo1826.nfo While I do not think we have any games require it just yet (not sure about title updates and we certainly have not seen wave 7 discs yet) and the official kernel does not really offer that much in the way of new features (rebooter users have long had USB support and ways of using it) such things are always welcome. The NFO also includes building instructions (considerably easier than it was) but the changelog part reads: It should go without saying that your older patches (some of which were distributed outside of the rebooter packages) will probably not work with this although that should not matter to most people as there are numerous ways around such things. -------- Some interesting updates, I will probably be flashing/updating mine in the next day or so but I am not in a rush. I am liking the trainers and unprotected memory though. Update: Reading around a bit it looks like for now it is going to be troublesome to update without given kernels and dumps (yes that means hardware dumping). Waiting on XBReboot v4 then, making a dummy image with all the relevant data is not going to be all that fun. removed from original post: Flashing can be done by many things but flash360 ( http://www.xbins.org/nfo.php?file=xboxnfo1777.nfo ) is a good app here if you already have a homebrew enabled 360.
