    It was a userland exploit.
    Pretty useless as we already have Devmode, where we can write our own programs.

    Not really, Devmode does not give us everything we'd want

    Yes but it does give us everything that hack would have... it's a userland exploit and doesn't have control over the system/gets no more access than the software that was exploited had.

    Devmode gives us exactly what we want.
    Except for piracy, which is illegal and wrong anyway.

    Homebrewers usually don't encourage piracy.
    Besides, PS3 wasn't hacked for 5 years cause hackers already had Linux running.
    That's all they want.

    MS already gave us the option to have our own code running in devmode, so there's little motivation to hack the console.


    Devmode is not an exploit.
    It's an intended feature of the One.

    It's free if you got a .edu mail.
    Think it's also free if you're an MSDN subscriber.
    Must also be another way for it to be free but eh.

  13. Done some digging, you can get a one time use code for a free dev account here

    https://developer.microsoft.com/en-...utm_medium=email&utm_content=pstbldeml_wrapup

    Get your code, goto aka.ms/activatexbox and sign up for a dev account, on the billing section enter your promo code and it will let you grab a free account, then you can use the dev app on the xbox to get your activation done.

    we can agree to disagree on the piracy thing....

    HOWEVER dev mode is very weak and locks alot of the systems resources away... a better hack would be so much better.

    Sure, but dev mode seems to be good enough for now.

    With that being said, I wouldn't mind seeing a kernel exploit when the console is discontinued.

    would just be nice to see more hardware usage and ability to run better emulators.

    Devmode recently got an update that allocated more resources to it.

    A kernel hack would purely be of piracy reasons.
