XBox 360 homebrew a comin’


Usually I like to see a full implimentation before posting stuff like this.. An anonymous developer put out some screen shots of his MAME360 app running on a developer system. Why care? A hop over to [Bunnie]‘s blog points out a recent vulnerability in the Xbox 360 Hypervisor. Thanks to [XanTium] for the original tip.

    Sounds great, except for these subtle details in the vulnerability report:

    “Jan 09, 2007 – vendor releases patch”

    “Systems Affected:
    All Xbox 360 systems with a kernel version of 4532 (released Oct 31,
    2006) and 4548 (released Nov 30, 2006). Versions prior to 4532 are not
    affected. Bug was fixed in version 4552 (released Jan 09, 2007 – not a
    Patch Tuesday).”

    So, if you’ve updated your 360 since January 9th, or haven’t updated it at all, you’re SOL.

    Yeah, but if you’ve just bought a new one or haven’t used live than you can most likely just disable the efuses by deslodering a single resistor (R6T3) and you’ll be able to downgrade in the future if necessary.
