Downgrade Kernel of 'eFused' Xbox 360 Possible if CPU Key is Known

What does that title mean? It means that if the CPU Key can be discovered that the Xbox 360 will be able to be modded with little resistance.

This is such a mixed bag, while i like homebrew and such i really don't want to start putting up with modders on Halo 3, Forza 2, or a host of other xbox 360 title that have been immune to this form of cheating thus far. Because you know as soon as they figure ways to truly mod the 360 there will be people jumping as high as the sky will let them and getting headshot after headshot in Halo 3 which makes the game horrible for all involved, except for the modder apparently.

I think MS will always be a step ahead of the modders! As soon the 360 gets modded, Microsoft will release a new firmware update that identifies and changes the dashboard software. Which will kill your 360, on the spot if you are modding!

The you will have to buy a new 360 and start all over again, and again and again!
