    Wow that is pretty cool especially for those who do not have a modchip like me. This could be interesting to me if it is somewhst simple to do.

    Already updated. Oh well. If worse comes to worse and I feel the need to pirate on the 360 I'll just get a mod chip.

    I don't care about a homebrew exploit -- any funny activity that would get me banned from Live isn't worth it.

    I updated yesterday...meh, too late. Anyways, what are they thinking? If they release the Exploit, Microsoft will find a way to detect it, and then:

    -Ban you from Live.
    -Delete it with the next update (already happend).

    I'm sorry, but I'm not willing to let me ban from Live for an XBox360 Linux and XBMC. Yes, the XBox would be great for Homebrew (Emulators, XBMC, etc...), but still Microsoft has done a better job than Nintendo, and can ban everyone or destroy the Exploit easely. And no Chance that they would allow this...they want money with "their" Indie-Games, and not free Homebrew-Games/Apps. Micro$oft is and will always be in the better position, because they can say: "Decide: XBox Live or Homebrew!" and most people want Online gaming. I'll stick with Nintendo, they can't and won't do much there against Homebrew.

    Damm.. well its sad that i just missed homebrew on my 360. Ive been in beta since 2. August.... but well.. im not really sad about it. I have a PC for homebrew and such right beside my 360.

    But sad for those who really was waiting for this to happend and updated.

    Ah who cares witch dash you need, if this hack is real, we al will learn a lot more about the xbox360 and will find a new workaround sooner.
    Only hopes this hack gets more excepted then the last one, so more homebrew will emerge.

    Safer just to flash the thing. Besides, they announced it too late. Unless someone was out on vacation or not playing their 360, I don't see why they wouldn't update.

    Haha there was a reason I never let my 360 on the internet. I just hope my friends have not done anything or I will have to fix some of the RROD 360s presently taking up valuable shelf space.

    Oh and mandatory 360 security talk video for these sort of situations:

    Also
    *crosses fingers for 360 XBMC-a-like*
