FreeBOOT v0.01 - XBox 360 8498 Rebooter for JTAG Hack Arrives

200°
263w ago - Today Ikari released the first version of 'freeBOOT' for xenon (v1) and falcon (v3) consoles with JTAG/SMC-Hack. This hasn't been tested yet, so try/use at own risk for now.

Download: FreeBOOT v0.01 for XBox 360

To quote: A 'rebooter', allows to 'reboot' the 360 into an MS kernel after starting it with the JTAG Hack... in this case (freeBOOT v0.01) it should reboot the console into MS kernel 8498 (but I assume 8507 will be possible too, and it's probably also the first step into rebooting into patched/modified MS kernels).

The readme says it requires the Cygnos360 v2 chip atm, I'm assuming they need it to automatically reset the SMC back to original.





Booting your 360 into 849x+ and keeping the JTAG Hack working was impossible until now, because updating to 849x+ via the MS update procedures burned a CB-fuse which made it impossible to still perform the JTAG Hack.

If you already updated your console to 849x+ via normal update methods there is still no solution for you, but if you have a JTAG 'hackable' console (kernel 7371 or lower on NAND) freeBOOT should allow you to 're boot' it into 8498 via the JTAG Hack.
 

Uncharted 2 PS3 Game Freezing Problems Being Reported

650°
263w ago - This weekend is the first many Uncharted 2 fans have had to get into the PS3 game, which was released last week on October 13 in the US, October 15 in Australia and October 16 in European markets.

That being said, this weekend also marks the beginning of numerous Uncharted 2: Among Thieves freezing reports surfacing... which appear to affect all makes and models of PS3 and can 'strike' at anytime.

However, the majority of reports say that it comes near the end of the game, with a few complaining of freezing problems at the start.

Currently there is no surefire way to fix this problem, however, many are simply returning the game to their retailer to exchange it for a new copy.

To quote: "Whether the system is the cause of the problem, the game, or a possible firmware glitch is the root of the problem hasn't been deciphered, yet. Unfortunately for those who are being affected by the freezing issue, there isn't a sure way to fix it at the given time.

If you are experiencing this problem, you may want to exchange your current copy for a new copy at your local retailer. Hopefully, that will fix the problem for you."

If anyone here has experienced a freezing issue with Uncharted 2 on their PlayStation 3 console feel free to report it in the comments below!
 

PlayStation Home Avatars Now Include Free Wolverine Claws

200°
264w ago - European PS3 gamers who view the two-minute long trailer for X-Men Origins: Wolverine at Sony's PlayStation Home Theatre will then find a free set of Wolverine Claws waiting for them in the Threads store of the Home Mall.

Unfortunately, these are non-functional weapons so you won't be able to go on a virtual rampage in Home... but free is always nice!

To quote: "As of today, it gets a little more dangerous with the addition of wearable Wolverine claws in Sony's virtual social space.

In an effort to promote the release of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, this year's best mutant action-comedy, on Blu-ray and DVD, Twentieth Century Fox and Sony Computer Entertainment Europe are giving away free adamantium upgrades to Home users. And they're giving away a free animated shirt. They call it a vest in Europe, which sounds much nicer than "wife-beater."

How does one get these lovely prizes?

Well, all one needs to do is visit the old Threads Store in Home, presumably after visiting the Home Theatre to watch a preview of the Blu-ray release."

To quote, from the NFO File: !Fixed Version! USB Support was broken

Finally the Zephyr JTAG Hack is here

This is XELL (compiled 11.09.09) inserted into 4558 Zephyr-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.

Of course you should have a working backup of your NAND before you proceed.

Just flash with:

LPT
nandpro lpt: -w16 zephyr_hack_updxell.bin 0

USB
nandpro usb: -w16 zephyr_hack_updxell.bin 0
