    Haven't seen a post here yet so thought I'd spread the word here, got this info off another forum, as well as a log from IRC below it:

    Rejoice!

    Holy crap. I knew it was only a matter of time but I am still surprised. Props to microsoft for defeating flashing for as long as they did.

    Probably not but the only issue I can see is that Microsoft is going to go on a new ban wave when the program is completed.

    Whoo: they fixed it.

    Damn: 10 people at least (Christmas morning may see that rise substantially) got new xboxes and as I am either "the friend" or "friend of a friend"........ Guess I should get my computer with serial ports up and running.

    "decapped in acid". Nice going people, I like to see reverse engineering on that level still going on outside of the commercial/educational* establishments.

    *I am aware it probably happened in one of these.

    For now yes, but they plan to work out a simpler method.

    good news, i'm considering getting a premod xbox 360 soon, the prices have been sky high because of the unhackable drives.
