Um, I bet half the people will still not even look at the read.me
as I understand it, when using the shadow eeprom any changes that effect the eeprom will be written to a file -> virtual eeprom. thus nothing changes in your real eeprom. Think the purpose was for people using other languages for the ms dash which messes around with the memory layout causing font's to not work correctly. and this works for any prog/tool NOT based on the xbox-linux work (anything based on xbox-linux tools read/write to the eeprom directly)

Ah, effectively it means virginize the eeprom forcing the kernel to load the dashboard first(as it was first opened). This then would trigger the hack and nkpatcher which will provide the shadow eeprom. The only catch seems to be, NO LIVE is possible.

i mean if your exploit screws up then you gotta problem

but there's no worries at the moment as retail games remain harmless. and when they do become potentially harmful, the user could just simply wait for the exploit to load along with nkpatcher. though this is an unlikely future. let me check it out

i don't think we have much to worry about. (damn PS5!!!!)

Also UXE was found and not invented. If it wasn't found everybody would still be switching regions.

me's glad my xbox isn't hooked up to the net. though i lose the ability to stream music, videos, browse the net and play system link. i don't care about LIVE.
LIVE is overrated anyhow.

You could use a fake EEPROM for your shadow, so that your real serial, HDD-key, and LiveID aren't given to servers.
The real EEPROM can still be grabbed through direct IO access though...and edited the same way. %99 of Xbox programs should use the kernel method and won't mess up your Xbox if you have it shadowed.
Linux based Xbox programs though don't use the kernel method - because its all supposed to be legal.
Anything else should be blocked because shadowing prevents the kernel method, but better safe than sorry.

--<potential though very unlikely>--
If everybody would start doing this, there's bound to be someone 'innocent' banned from Live (a modder would eventually take the same 'virtual eeprom' of some unknowing retail user's real eeprom)... when more and more of these innocent people get banned, MS will be forced to remove the check
