Xbox 360 Homebrew Emulation Via Xbox Emulator Exploit Opened

Undertakencodes found the Holy Grail of Xbox 360 Homebrewers - a hole in the security of the emulator of Xbox. He says this hole makes it possible to load homebrew and backups without hardware/firmware modifications. As proof of concept, Undertakencodes developed a port of the Snes9x which loads on the Xbox 360 but is not playable at the moment.

Wii, eat your heart out.

Let's just hope Microsoft doesn't find this security hole and fix it.

TheMART6558d ago

I bet MS will find and fix it in an update. Or is there a possibility they can't fix it?

Someone with more knowledge about this probably?

Qofthedead6558d ago

It says "Block is Empty", Does this mean its been deleted or removed?

just mod your original xbox if you want emulated games. i ahve all the snes/genesis games and some n64/ps1 games on my xbox. with xbmc, it's also a better media center than the 360.

Krimson6558d ago

Your obviously missing the point. When the 360 is opened up to homebrew we will get XBMC and the emulators and all that jazz on a much more powerful and capable system. XBMC is great but the original xbox is not poweful enough to decode/render hi-def video sources. It's not even poweful enough to decode H.264 at SDef.

Running the homebrew apps is fun, and yes, it is a lot better on the original xbox right now. However, because of the xbox 360's greater power, much more would be possible if the modding community could use it instead of the original xbox. I don't know if this would be possible with this exploit because it goes in through the BC software so I wonder if it would only run original xbox homebrew.

If anybody knows if this exploit allows the programmer to access xbox 360 hardware directly and not through the BC software, please post.

WOW! What an incredible amount of words to say so little.

A bizarre, verbal onslaught "review" that tries so hard to be eloquently whimsical in its writing to cover the fact it doesn't really contain any content. Other than the self explanatory and rehashing what we already know...

Someone's either trying really hard to impress someone at the office or this was written by AI.. Tone it down a bit, It'll give people less of a headache.

Why Metal Gear Solid 3 is the Best Prequel Ever Made

With Metal Gear Solid Delta on its way, we look back to see how the original Snake Eater is the foundation on which the entire Metal Gear series is built and is without doubt the greatest prequel ever made.

The fact you can kill the end by either changing your console clock or my way when he is on the dock is such a cool Easter egg.

My video/play through i time coded the part of end getting killed at the dock

The river scene with ocelot's dad will also change depending on your kill count
https://www.youtube.com/liv...

So many things that can change on each playthrough

Oh also the iconic ladder scene always a classic

wait are people upset i gave out spoilers on a 20 year old ps2 game?

Like for real this was on top of alot of charts for sales with so many different versions

SimpleDad2d ago

There are many people (new) that didn't experience the game dude.

just_looken2d ago

It's 20 years old man these new "gamers" are weak

No one here ever turn on a history channel or go to school there are scary spoilers there too.

Getting hate for talking about a 20year old game on a comment section with a article that talks about the 20year old game with spoilers in the article

" original Snake, aka Big Boss, whose DNA was used to create the clones Solid, Liquid and Solidus"

Quick call 911 IGN spoiled the game

Chard2d ago

Wait til he realises there are people born years after MGS3 released who are now getting into mature gaming

just_looken2d ago

@chard

I was watching robocop before i grew chest hair are you seriously saying people only play M rated games after they turn 17?

Chard1d 23h ago (Edited 1d 23h ago )

@just_looken
That’s not what I’m saying at all.
Im referring to the weird conclusion you jumped to, which is that anyone who hasn’t played MGS3 by now took too long and are also weak for being bothered by spoilers this long after the original release.

Plenty of people without chest hair will try this remake as their first exposure to MGS3. It’s not somebody’s fault or weakness if they were born in 2010 and had better things to do than play MGS3 prior to this remake. The world doesn’t revolve around you

Aphrodia1d 12h ago

And no one who hasn't played this game yet will know what the hell he's referring too. sensitive, delicate, snowflake.....

Have an agree, if people haven't bothered playing a 20 year old game and get mad at spoilers then they should stay out of enthusiast posts.

just_looken2d ago

Right and this article has series/game spoilers

Yui_Suzumiya2d ago

I'll call the WHAMBULANCE for the down voters, lol

just_looken2d ago

Right? like wow perhaps i should post about the gta 3 story in the next article get hate there for spoiling that game.

SimpleDad2d ago (Edited 2d ago )

You really are something. Not only does a world turn around you, but you also are sensitive to 5 dislikes.
Who is weak now?
All remakes are done to bring in a new audience and make new money.
Why would you spoil a game or any kind of media for whatever reason If You experienced it?

Ohhh for your Youtube channel... there it is.

Jesus... imagine if someone commented your gameplay. Badly...

My boys will experience this remake for the first time.

just_looken2d ago

1. Its not the dislikes its many post's on this site and other's always the haters or like you mad about spoilers on old old games.

2. My youtube channel is older that most "gamers" today i lost alot of vids do too youtube bots and yourself has no proof even playing any of the games so go ahead post away on stuff you have no idea how to play.

3. My header is real i used to make a few k or more a month or more with mahcinima when bf/gta/halo/world of tanks were in there prime.Now there is just few vids here there

MeteorPanda2d ago

love it.

Just remember while this game came out years ago, theres a whole generation f gamers who would have never played it. it wasn't current for them.

So the remasters are aimed at bringing in new fans of the franchise, posting these may spoil it for some.
