Is an eprom generator possible? Something that will generate valid eproms for banned users?

Just generate a random eprom... similar to how a lot of key generators out there for generating serial numbers for software.

give m$ a ring and ask them what thier algorithms are fopr generating xbox eeprom data.

or

pretend you are IRS and you want to audit thier console system, so you want samples of lots of eeprom data.

or don't get banned

Maybe if we setup a place for people to submit their banned eproms. If we have enough, we might be able to find a pattern in the different keys that compose the eprom. smile.gif

How do you plan on Generating "VALID" EEPROMS? dry.gif laugh.gif Sure you might be able to come up with a generator, but it will end up being like the ones for example CS. You'll make a key that will get the game working, but when it comes to playing online it won't be Authenticated by WON. The same story will take place with M$.

really it's not a joke and here is why:

there are already "brute force" key gens for Windows XP and Ofice XP which have to athenticated by an MS server before they install. Those Key Gens generate a key, then connect to the MS verification server and say "Why, hello. I am a copy of windows xp that is being installed, here is my install key"

Then the MS server is like "That is not a valid key, so go home"

Then the key gen is all like "hmmm... ok, how about this one?" and gives it another key that it generated.

And the MS server is like" nope, sorry, please try again"

And this goes back and forth for like 10 or 15 mins till the key gen says to the server "try this one"

And the MS server says "this one checks out, come on in"

And the Key Gen saves that key to a text file and disconnects from the server.



So, if someone could decode the formula for the Xbox Eprom and if some one used a packet sniffer to figure out the what LIVE says to the Xbox when is has a valid eprom, and what is says to the Xbox when it has an invalid Eprom, you easily make a program that generates eproms and validates them using the live server.

Things that might get in the way of this:

The complexity of the Eprom formula (encrypted?)
The protocol of the Xbox-Live validation (encrypted?)

What if MS figured out how to detect this "brute force" eprom gen and validation method and started black listing all the generated eproms? Thats ok, because the will only hurt them selfs by black listing valid eproms. Imagine what would happen if brand new Xboxes could not go on live becuase MS had already banned the eprom from when on modchip-user had generated this same eprom by chance. It would be a Cust. Serv. nightmare, and a PR debochel.

well, its not that big of a joke since, crackers did the same exact thing as m$ does for windows xp prof, they used a serial generator that generated the millions of serials that were in m$ database and therefore was 100% working and a licenced and non pirated copy from m$ coputers, i still doubt it will happend though

EDIT: whoops didnt see ^^^ post
