FreeBOOT v0.2 Allows Running Unsigned XEX Files on XBox 360!

400°
228w ago - Today some HOT news in the XBox 360 scene has surfaced... ikari has released FreeBOOT v0.2 which allows users to run unsigned XEX files on their XBox 360 consoles... this essentially renders the dev boxes useless, so keep an eye on eBay for price drops soon.

Download: FreeBOOT v0.2 / FreeBOOT v0.2 [Mirror]

From the ReadMe file: FreeBOOT is a rebooter for the Microsoft Xbox 360. This version of freeBOOT allows you to reboot into kernel 2.0.8955 on all Xenon, Zephyr, Falcon, and Jasper consoles with 16MB flashes, which are vulnerable to the JTAG hack.

Support for Opus and Jasper consoles with larger flashes will follow soon. As freeBOOT needs a second flash memory to store kernel 2.0.8955 and associated data, either a Cygnos360 or an xD card mod is required at the moment.

Bug Fixes:

• Harddisk installation and save game/profile issues have been fixed

New Features:

• Updated to kernel 8955
• Additional support for Zephyr and Jasper consoles with 16MB flashes
• Support for xD card mod and Cygnos360 V1 added
• Harddisk authentication disabled. The Xbox 360 will now accept any SATA...

650°
229w ago - If you own a Sony PS3 console (or any other DivX certified device) then you can claim and download a free DivX movie.

According to greavsie of the official European PlayStation Forums when you register on the official DivX site MoviePromo.Divx.com you are entitled to a free movie download that you can transfer to the PlayStation 3.

To quote: "All you need is to get a DivX VOD Registration Code from your PS3's System Settings and then enter that code on your Web site account.

You will then have to download a small file to play on your PlayStation 3 to activate it for Video-on-demand playback.

Finally, you can now choose what movie you want for free. The selection is small and not great, but the best one is probably Batman Begins. To download the film, you need the latest version of DivX installed on your PC."
