Dive was raised in West Philadelphia with his fraternal twin brother, Kick. When trouble brewed at their local park, the boys' mother sent them to live with their Uncle Sensei in Bel Air to learn how to Divekick.
Dive strives to perfect the art of diving into the air, using his love of math to ensure that he is always at an angle that will lead him to victory. His massive study sessions and dedication to his schoolwork have left him with less time to focus on his kicking, however.

Finally, after a long period of a scene that got riddled by money hungry dongle suppliers we uncover this big scam and show you how things actually work.
First of all, none of the code the dongles use comes from the creators. All files used come directly from higher PS3 firmwares. This works by using plugins / SPRX's who are basically just drivers, from a higher PS3 firmware.
To get games to work, you need to use the files from higher firmwares, that games require. Those plugins we are talking about, also have the decrypt information stored in them that the games use to work.
Some of the newer SPRX's are compatible with older firmwares and can be used on older firmwares quiet easily. All you need to do is place them in the right folder and that's it.
Of course this procedure doesn't work with all the games quite so easy, some of the 3.6+ games load right away, others need some fixing. This fixing is done by patching the SPRX's to work with the lower firmware. Porting the drivers, so they can work with lower firmwares should be the easiest...
WHY? There are many reasons why your Xbox360 could get revoked, but generally it means you have done something to piss off MS. So the best way to keep from being revoked? Don't do anything liable to piss off MS.
An example of a cause for revocation is the public sharing of your gamesaves or other similar files from your Xbox360 hard drive. This includes making publicly available "resigned" versions of these kinds of files. In order to be revoked you have to have done something that involves your Console ID so that MS has the ID required for revocation.

Speaking at CES in Las Vegas, Microsoft president Robbie Bach revealed that Microsoft intends to rely on the Xbox 360 for longer than usual because its hard to get consumers to upgrade. Hence they will not be rushing out a new XBox 720? model any time soon.
Additionally, they plan to increase the 100 friends limit on XBox Live through more frequent XBox 360 updates, according to Aaron Greenberg.
He also told gaming fanatics that they can expect more channels, content, and features on a regular basis due to the new interface.
To quote: Microsoft Corp. will rely on its Xbox 360 game console for longer than the previous version because it's getting harder to get consumers to upgrade, the head of the company's entertainment unit said.
The software maker will focus on improving the Xbox's games and features rather than rushing to introduce a new model, President Robbie Bach said Wednesday at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The Xbox 360 started selling in 2005, replacing the original Xbox, which debuted in 2001.
261w ago - The Internet is buzzing with multiple reports that there is a new Nintendo Wii revision which blocks all current Wii mod-chips.
Apparently, the drive controller chip has been completely removed and Nintendo has combined the older D1A and driver controller chip into one which is called the GC2-D3.
Therefore, a big space has been left on the motherboard (pictured below) where it used to sit. More pictures and analysis is available at CNGBA (linked above), and to quote via rough translation:
In December 2008 the first major Wii platform, which is available in the market the latest version of the Wii console has been great changes have taken place in-house. The original D2x with the master chip at the bottom of the D1A into one chip, into a GC2-D3!
This means that all direct-reading all the chips can not be directly used in the new version of the Wii console on. Hackers have also re-examine the GC2-D3-chip pin definitions, and then modify targeted direct reading of the bridge chip approach.
We speculated that the new version of the Wii is currently using only soft approach to achieve the break to read CD-ROM version of the D (soft-mod on the situation detailed HERE).
