    This is not my work. ConnorRigby shared his work on GitHub:

    "Long time no see XBMC4XBOX crew. After about 5 years i've just picked up an Xbox from a goodwill, and wanted to play some Halo 2 online.
    I don't have a windows machine, and ddwrt support seems to have been dropped, and all other guides seem to be pretty out of date. so i decided id whip something up myself.

    I want my Xlink server to be running all the time so Raspbain wasn't an option for me. Soooo naturally i made my own tiny distro that does the following:

    1) boots linux kernel
    2) connects to network
    3) sets time
    4) downloads latest latest xlink engine
    5) starts engine on port 80

    and thats it. no screwing around with iniit scripts or anything like that. If the engine exits, it restarts it etc. Very stable. been running all day long.

    Heres the latest download: https://github.com/ConnorRigby/xlink-ka ... v0.1.0.img
    Instructions in the README.md: https://github.com/ConnorRigby/xlink-ka ... /README.md

    It only works on raspberry pi 3 currently. I have some plans for this package so check back if your interested."


    It now works on all of the Raspberry Pi versions. https://github.com/ConnorRigby/xlink-kai/releases

    Would it be possible to use this for LAN/WIFI PS4 link play on 4.55 (obviously without PSN)
