 I'm no developer, so help me out here...

what exactly are the possibilities with this exploit?  And what advantages would this have over Complex's !loader disc? blink.gif

 This exploit does EVERYTHING

The code is there to play with.  Right now, it only does Linux, but with a bit of playing it can be used to run absolutely everythings.... apps/emulators/games....... you name it.  This exploit only needs to be run once to install too.

 From my reading of it, possibilities are total.  You can do anything with this exploit including booting 3rd party software (EvoX) by default without a modchip and even going on Live and preventing the dashboard being overwritten again to prevent this.

You don't need to boot this from 007 everytime like before, since this one is permanent.

 This is BOOT DISK level, (still need a memory card and 007 auf ext.(!one time!)) but unopened unmoded running of unsigned code.

 You use 007 to load the new font files. Then you are free to do what you want. You know longer need to flash the TSOP to run backups or anything else you want.

You can also use xbox live with backed up games or hacks or whatever (M$ will fix this in the next 24 hours if they have not already done so).

 Anybody ever thought about how difficult it would be to actually swap an HD without a modchip? Once you swap to a new drive, you don't have a dashboard... how are you going to use the new exploit?

It's the modchip that allows unsigned programs like EVOX to run so that you can format the new HD WITHOUT a dashboard hack.

With this new hack, I don't think you can prepare a new drive without a PC.

 Hey, so if we combine this new exploit, with the new M$Dash hack (the launcher within msdash), we will be unstoppable? heh. I got a question tho, if we use a locked 120 gig hdd, wont the xbox only recognize 8 gigs if it does not have modified bios? Or....will this exploit remove this limit

Yeah, maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see what the big deal is...  The fact you still need to use the 007 hack or a hard drive swap is prohibitive to making the Xbox truly "independent".  It seems to me this guy has a personal beef with M$ and is trying to get as much attention as possible.  I don't blame MS for ignoring him, and I question the justification of him calling July 4th the "day of the XBOX independence".

If they do fix it, what stops someone from using the 007 hack and coping and older version of the dashboard and all related files over M$s "new" fixed dashboard

I suppose you could still do a TSOP flash, but then you'd have to open the box to do that...kind of defeats the purpose...still a very interesting hack though.

I'm gonna sit back and watch this carefully, I wonder how MS will react or if they will do anything at all? .pop.gif  This seems too big to ignore.  A regular Pandora's Box if you will... blink.gif

 How do these people get this smart? anyways, this is quite the hack and a pound in the ass for M$, in the near future it should be 007 or mechasault hack copy fontsound files and evox-> ms dashboard hack -> apps and backed up games.  I almost feel sorry for M$, but then I remember they're money grubbing whores smile.gif and they deserve it.

See, the 'fixed' dashboard won't let you use the exploit. That's why it will have earned the term 'fixed'.

Keep in mind this could also hurt to good, honest game developers too... if too many n00bs look at this as an "easy" way to pirate games... (although not much easier than a modchip)...
