Hi,

I have tweaked a little the official "install-ppc64-minimal-2006.1.iso" gentoo iso so it work on the 360. This livecd is a minimal one, no x-server and you still need a serial adapter (could change soon since it use the readcd binary from felix, if someone manage to put this in a modded shader). I'm still working on some more cool stuff actually.

The ftp where the file is hosted allow 50 users so if you can make some mirrors ..
You will find more info on the free60.org website.

ftp://linux360:linux360@mydedibox.homelinux.com/
http://www.free60.org/

Here is the readme :
CODE

gentoo-xenon-minimal-2006.1
***************************

This is a liveCD for Linux on the Xbox 360. It is based on the official gentoo
minimal installer named install-ppc64-minimal-2006.1.iso with a few changes to
boot on the Xbox 360 (codename xenon).
Currently, Samsung drives aren't supported, but it will work if you can load the
enable0800 ISO just before loading the cdreader binary via serial.


How does it work ?
==================
Burn gentoo-xenon-minimal-2006.1.iso.
Upload the cdreader binary via serial, this will open the xbox dvd drive.
Put the gentoo-xenon-minimal-2006.1 CD in the drive.
cdreader will automatically start the xell bootloader located at lba 0x20 on
this cd and boot the Linux Kernel.


Where to find more info on Linux for Xbox 360 :
===============================================
http://www.free60.org/
Free60 is a project towards porting GNU/Linux, BSD, Darwin and related
open-source operating systems to the Microsoft Xbox 360 video game console.


Thanks to :
===========
- Felix alias tmbinc, coded the cdreader binary and xell bootloader, without him,
  nothing would be possible.
- Stonersmurf, did the ISO mastering and gave his help and support on a lot of
  things, many thanks to him.
- The free60.org team.


Cheers,
Cpasjuste.

Wow, it's nice to see a patch like this to ease the installation. Shouldn't be long before we see major things.

seem to have discovered a few small things worth noting

i am connected via serial

i am using the original (crwl360) patched kk disc

dvd drive is flashed w/ 5.2 xtreme

when i receive the "xe" prompt i insert the enable0800.iso cd...the drive goes in to mode b...makes the ticking noise

i send the readcd.bin file...it sends ok..but the code is not executed

i have to send the original (crwl360) hello.bin file and then the readcd code is exectuded

the kernel loads and then hangs @ the second ata1 line...is it looking for a hdd? (duh..i just thought of that..guess ill connect a sata drive)

CODE
[  121.543823] ata1: SATA max UDMA/133 cmd 0xD0000800834E2200 ctl 0xD0000800834E
220A bmdma 0xD0000800834E4220 irq 36
[  121.562936] scsi0 : sata_xenon
[  122.036495] ata1: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 300)

Are you sure that that isn't just for hacking the beast via serial? This new exploit's nfo mentions nothing about different drives. It simply says (paraphrase) burn it, it ejects, stick in the live cd.
