Is there a way to get the xbox operating system files out from the media storing them ?

There's probably a loader for the XEX files over there, doing some kind of pseudo-decryption.

We don't have the hardware here yet.  We'll have to wait a couple of days ;-)

That's quite easy to get, buy a 360 game, the OS is on it, and the disc is standard DVD format. Stick in a standard DVD equipped computer and start hacking

First crack the FAT format (probably newer/different from XFAT), and you got the files you want...

The dashboard and (I think) the OS kernel are on the flash chip.

Xbox has a onboard 16 MB flash chip.  On there is the dashboard and all that crap.  Its encrypted with a unique key (each xbox has a diff key; keys are stored in CPU).  So to get those files you'll need to get the key and figure out what algorithm there using.

If your asking about the BIOS data.  Well thats also on the CPU.  Not sure how'd you'd get that.

Capture the data while it's on it's way to the RAM? Or is the code directly executed in the CPU?

As current reports state, the bootloader is in the CPU itself. What good would it be to put it there if it still would have to be executed from system RAM ? smile.gif

the dashbaord is executed in RAM, so its feasible to grab that, of course i dont know how much good it will do without the bootloader and kernel
