Xbox 360 vulnerability found, homebrew could be just around the corner

done homebrew, it's always seemed like too much work, I might do it for the 360 if this works out.

I use homebrew on my PSP it is really good and has soo... much potential and of course can lower your spending costs on a system, if homebrew is available for the 360 and its safe, then i will definitely look into it.
Especially when the games cost so much compared to the PSP, PS2, Xbox1 etc.
