Not that it does us any good, but consider the 360 officially hacked. After "months of hard
work," a team of
from have released video
) of a back-up copy of PGR3
running on an Xbox 360 with reprogrammed
DVD drive firmware. This comes on the heels of the FW security details being posted on XboxHacker.net. The
"new" firmware, which requires a hardware reprogrammer to install, will boot any properly formatted disc with
matching CR be data, but does not circumvent region encoding.
As explained earlier, the security flaw that
allows this is really in the hardware design, so it looks like hackers are in control of the cat/mouse game from now
on, even if MS forces an update via XBL. But don't expect it to show up on Xbins any time soon. TheSpecialist explains
the group's noble intentions:There are no plans to make some kind of tutorial for n00bs. Intention of
this site is to get an understanding of how the 360 is protected, not to enable n00bs playing backups.
They hack because they care.
