a norwegian newspaper, the biggest in norway, runned a story about the xbox360 beeing hacked today. they have their information from this site:


i am lousy reading dutch text, but according to the norwegian articel a group of guys had hacked the machine so it could play unoriginal games, copyed games, copyed movies etc... but this group would not let the rest of the world know about it...

does anyone here know anything more about it?

I wouldn't say the xbox360 is hacked but they can play backups of games. You can't even play games that are not in your region.

Also there is a lot of information at http://www.xbox-scene.com (http://www.xbox-scene.com/)

Yah sure you have to

1. Open your xbox
2. open your dvd drive
3. desoder the chip
4. firmware flash the chip (5 GRAND BOX)
5. put it backtogater properly

its not a mod it a freking pain:uzi:

lol yes but it can be done is the point, no matter how much of a pain it is too do

its not really modded, it will play a backed up game that you have burned to a dvd-r, that has to be in the same region, when we can play a game from a different region, play a backed up game, and be able to do so for around 50 or 60 USD then it will be modded.

also whoever said so that you can watch backed up movies, you can watch backed up movies without the firmware hack

ok shall we term it an expensive hack then, the bottom line is (edit) games are possible....at a cost

we dont like that word that starts with a p here

03-20-2006, 06:44 PM
its only a firmware hack...they hooked the dvd drive up to linux and changed the firmware

some good news from http://www.teamxecuter.com (http://www.teamxecuter.com/)

"We have opened up a new forum dedicated to Xbox 360 Development


Please ask any questions you like and give any input that you see fit. If you would like a staff position to help run this forum please contact admin@teamxecuter.com

Also if there are any high end designers out there who'd like to take on the job of redesigning our front page please also email us at the same address.

We have made some progress with a new read/patch/write app and no doubt you will all be plugging in your drives to your PC and having some fun shortly - all for free too as no modchips required (and yes we still want to play!)

Here is what we envisage...

> Connect Xbox 360 DVD-ROM to PC
> App to update firmware with magic code
> Connect DVD-ROM back to 360 - and away you go

Also this site has some killer information : http://www.kev.nu/360/dvdshort.html

Obviousley the only use for this is (edit) - hence you wont see any modchips (not from us at least - however they wouldn't be needed anyway - however we do have a few cheap tools to make life much easier - more on that soon) Still a long long way off from unsigned code - but it's a start....

Thanks to The Specialist for reviving the scene! We understand he doesn't want to release anything due to possible backlash - but there are many of us who would - and will.

Keep your eyes on our 360 forums for updates.....

btw Qwix2 Rules !"

Isn't that last post condoning to the thought of Modding?

If so, that'll get this thread locked....

its a big deal but at the same time its not a big deal and veyr eeh.

cant wait for something shocking...or something just swizzle

03-21-2006, 12:14 PM
so for a some1 like me who knows f all about hacking does this mean that very soon we can play copyed xbxo360 games with out a chip

03-21-2006, 12:31 PM
in a word yes. with the kiosk disk it has been possible to burn things onto a dvd-r and watch them on the xbox- ie films tv etc etc

and now theyve released the stuff to FTP to the xbox, it wont b long till its the same state as the original one

but this shouldnt really be mentioned on this site, so lets stop it now
