An amazingly easy to follow tutorial that takes you all the way from disassembling the Xbox 360 to installing the hacked firmware and backing up your Xbox 360 games, complete with pictures.
this is bad.
If you want to pirate you will.
If you don't you won't.
I've certainly had a lot of fun with this info. If you can do it, I recommend trying it... Gotta have a kingly rig though...
It is bad for any company if there are tutorials on how to hack their equipment, so they can play games for free..
"If you want to pirate you will.
If you don't you won't."
Not entirely true cause some years back the thought of pirate never crossed my mind until I started reading people's comments on how to do certain things and also by reading articles like this..
My point is that sometimes curiosity can be provoked by this kind of articles..
Since I was provoked I have been a very happy gamer :) Still waiting on some more reliable sources so I can hack the sh*t out of my PS3..
My best friend hacked the 360 and has already 20 games in about 2 months..
Ah yes, that's the beauty of the Internet. It gives you things you didn't even ask for. Speaking of which, I'd never even dream of doing what I'm used to doing now untill I saw some very creative and taboo-breaking xxx sites on the Internet :)) Curiosity can be dangerous though. For some.
more games for no price and a loss for warranty.
Keep in mind with a 360 its a bad idea since MANY 360s have overheated and got the three red light of death and such.
You have to admit it 360 does have a lot of issues, though its games are decent. 40 something % if i remember correctly, for the amount of defected 360s last time i checked.
Edit: It is also a bad idea to hack the PS3 after all blu-rays cost a lot right now and so do the burners, not to mention that I don't think there is a burning program out for burning blu-rays yet.
---correct me if im wrong about the program for burning blu-rays plz---
Im most likely gonna lose a bubble for saying that...
Yeah there are Bulray burners already, but movies can be transfered from your pc to the PS3 HDD..
Hacking hurts the industry but hey that's life, anyway I thought the 360 had already been hacked about 6 months after it was released? -at least I remember reading a article about it. I suppose you can never really stop anyone determined enough to hack a product, I think 360 will still do fine.....I guess it will always be a battle to at least make it harder for hackers, obviously this will void your warranty but it seems as if their is some risk of being banned from Live also. I like how they offer all the legal warnings as if they really care....awww how sweet...and I can't believe they suggest if you're worried about problems buy 2 360's -lol, We'll see how this plays out.
Please dont steal games it is short sighted.
Where did you hear that one, Timmy? A variety of factors contirbuted to the demise of the dreamcast, and the fact that it can be hacked is why it still has a rabid cult following today!
Still has a rabid following....
Great. Lot of good it's doing for SEGA and the programmers who made the games.
i thought a whole bunch of ppl hacked when the first xbox came out one of my friends modded his and then all of his friends friends wanted to mod theirs so he charged like $20 a job and he ended up like doing 20-25 so i thought it was very i never did but the stuff you could do i thought was pretty kewl like free games and old nintendo games and stuff was awesome
:) hey these tutorials are good for knowing how to take apart your stuff atleast. They taught me how to be really good at taking apart a 360 all while making the seal look like it's still intact. Ask Wal-Mart...they have a "returned" 360 with a nice broken DVD drive. So see, Microsoft screw you, you turn and screw Microsoft.
M$ ultimate weapon against pirates: 3 red lights. XD
This isn't news at all...
