184w ago - After the release of the hack for Xenon, Falcon/Opus and Zephyr XBox 360 motherboards, today we get the Free60 JTAG / SMC XeLL Hack for Jasper (v4) motherboards with 16MB NAND chips (so NOT compatible with 256 & 512MB NAND yet).
This NAND image will boot your Jasper XBox 360 right into XeLL, which allows you to launch linux distros or run libxenon homebrew software, as long as you never upgraded it via the normal MS upgrade procedures to kernel 849x or higher.
To quote from the NFO File: Finally the Jasper JTAG Hack is here
This is XELL (compiled 11.09.09) inserted into 6712 Jasper-Kernel.
Don't wonder about the Filesize, its correct like that. It just flashes the beginning of the NAND so your console specific data like MAC adress will stay.
196w ago - Today French site Logic-Sunrise.com (linked above) has published a guide based on the Free60 Exploit and the work of Tiros.
For those seeking to give it a try, to quote: "We're going to explain you the Free60 exploit, which consists in launching decrypted code (hello word) on a Xbox 360 system.
Once this bug has been well exploited, It will be possible, in a near future, to use your Xbox 360 as a media center, and for example lauch XBMC, or homebrews (megadrive, SNES emulators, and others) and maybe Xbox 360 games from the hard disk as well, everything a Xbox 1st generation did but more powerfully !
But before being there, there is a long way to do, even if the basis is here : it's now possible to load decrypted code on Xbox 360 system. It's been for 4years we have waiting for this huge news !
This tutorial is written in order to explain the way to hack you Xbox 360. No chips needed !
What you need :
• a Xbox 360 XENON system
• parallel port adaptater
• NAND Pro, available here : http://www.logic-sunrise.com/telechargement-40683-nand-pro.html
• solder gear
197w ago - Today xZool2k9 has released a video demonstrating the upcoming Free60 Homebrew Exploit for XBox 360 consoles.
The video is available below, and to quote from the caption:
This is the confirmation that the hack announced by Tmbinc is actually working. I have used a sample Cygnos360 V2 I got from Team Cygnos and flashed the hack onto the second NAND. The onboard NAND was untouched by that.
As you can see I can still switch to the NXE dash. When switching to the NAND onboard of Cygnos the blue LED lights up on the USB daughter board. I can then boot straight of that NAND.
