    I was just browsing the forums and I noticed that xbox one didn't have a section for hacking. Does this mean that no one's figured out how to hack the xbox one yet?

    It hasn't been hacked YET. So there is no need for a hacking section currently, not because its unhackable, because it is, but we just don't know how to yet

    There exist private hacks.
    However these haven't been publicly shared yet so you either wait or get a second Xbone.

    Please elaborate. Are you referring to what TX has been teasing or something else?

    No offense but this kind of sounds like bullshit.

    Take a good search around the web, evidence to be found.

    It says something about a 'Xbox One jtag', which obviously doesn't exist. When I clicked Download I got pop-ups and ads...

    Any site which says "console name" + "jailbreak" in its URL is 99.9% always fake.
    Don't even bother with it.

    Your mom's basement.
    I have seen zero interest, so that's probably why.

    The term "jailbreak" is something completely different.
    But yes, it's very often associated with the hacking of Apple devices.

    Not every finding has to be publicized.

    But why hide Xbox One exploits? Unless it's pure piracy related it's sorta unheard of in the Xbox scene for anything to be hidden for long. It can't be the modern "scene" either, since PS4 has custom code execution shown and available. It strikes me that this time around there isn't any motivation for exploits - the only people who would care are pirates or COD kids. Then you have the very few people who would actually be interested in Linux or Windows support on the machine in which case, historically speaking, wouldn't go untold. If something does exist for Xbox One, I'm convinced it's going to be for profit. It has to be at this point.

    Usually when it comes to Microsoft and Sony game consoles its always hardware hacks. Which is why people should not spend money on hacking them because most people will spend close to thousands of dollars to buy such hacks.


    Edit: I know from experience

    Baffles me as well.
    But you know how people are, if they can make a profit off off it, they will.

    If you have nothing better to contribute then consider not posting.

    The same reason why there isn't a decent original X-BOX emulator. Lack of interest.

    ^ this, yeah just lack of interest, and maybe only few people researching stuffs about xbox one.

    remember xbox360 was also hack, but homebrews are just limited to game managers, cheats, and pc tools to hack the console
