This looks awesome. I'm definitely buying this.
If this will emulate XBOX Live arcade games, it would definitely be a sure buy for me
Wow.. I might buy this as the Xbox360 looks to complicated for me xD
So basically, this is like the PS3break in the respect that it allows you to run backups through a special system present on the device itself without any prior hacking? Pretty neat if you ask me. I let my friend know about it to see if he would be interested.
He might not bite though, since users caught using a device such as this would inevitably receive a permanent online ban, which is a major pull in for a lot of people for the 360.
Wait wait wait wait wait. Plug n play Xbox hacking? Looks like I'll need a 2nd Xbox so I don't get my Live account banned.
If I read it correctly it is a DVD drive emulator so you can stick all your xbox backups on a hard drive and replace the dvd drive in your 360 with this device then plug your hardrive into the 360key. So if it isn't a disk you can stick in your dvd-drive, it is not something that will run with this.
If you read it again, it says it sits in there between the disc drive and the motherboard through a simple connection to the "SATA bus" inside of the 360.
Meh. I'll stick with my JTAG. Although if I ever get a 4th XBOX 360, I'll grab this.
This is highly interesting, I wonder how detectable this little thing is?
I might be intrigued enough to purchase one and test it out on an old prone to breaking lots xbox I have lying around that I can't shift.
It's very intriguing though, considering you're not overwriting or modding the 360 console in any way, just pretty much plug and play.
Although my old 360 being prone to breaking, it wouldn't be worth the purchase :3 maybe if I decide to upgrade to a slim I'll use this on my current arcade console insead.
But if you read OzModChips twitter, they refer to it as a disc drive emulator.
Anyway, any speculation on this thing's cost?
I want one!
I fear that this thing will get blocked with an update, but oh well, 'till it works, why not.
And obviously, I'm expecting a $100+ price tag.
You can disable the disc drive without actually removing it.
it looks expensive though
is this from the same makers of wiikey and ps3key?
Since the 360 updates can now flash the DVD drive firmware to stock, I wonder what the chance is of an update bricking this neat little device. And if it blocks that aspect of the update, I would imagine it would be highly detectable. I would imagine they would be smart enough to install a Dummy NAND chip to "catch" the firmware flash.
I have no desire to further pirate 360 although I am damn curious about the price of this unit. It will not be cheap but it is interesting nonetheless.
it will probably be easily detectable my guess
just like on the ps3
if you do use this expect a 360 ban
That's not quite what I was getting at. I was saying the device will only work as a disc drive emu. Your earlier post made it sound like you disagreed.
cheers to the hackers, hope this doesnt become a Sony case where Microsoft court cases ban the key
