Video: XBMC Running on XBox 360 / Ubuntu by Team Cygnos

250w ago - Team Cygnos have posted a video of XBox Media Center (XBMC) running on XBox 360 with Ubuntu launched via the Xell loader by tmbinc.

To quote: We managed to patch XBMC for Linux so that it runs on the XBox 360. It is still a proof-of-concept and does not have sound or 3D acceleration, but it runs!

This is a demonstration of XBMC (Xbox Media Center) running on an XBox 360 with Ubuntu 7.10.

I'm sure it works but I have a few questions!

1. At the 0:53 mark, he inserts a dvd and it states that it will boot Unbuntu from the hard disk. Clearly there is no HDD on his arcade model!

2. How come the controller indicator lights switch between quadrant 1 and 2 before anything is installed?
