Xbox360 Experimental Patches for Linux Kernel 2.6.24.3
Posted by XanTium | April 16 00:37 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
New experimental patches have been released on free60.org for one of the latest linux kernel (2.6.24.3). This will allow the people running Linux on their Xbox 360 to upgrade to a newer kernel:

Get the source for the Linux 2.6.24.3 Kernel from kernel.org (http://www.kernel.org/) and unpack it somewhere in your home directory.
cd
wget http://www.kernel.or....6.24.3.tar.bz2
tar -xvjf linux-2.6.24.3.tar.bz2


2. Download and apply the experimental Xenon patchset.
cd linux-2.6.24.3/
wget http://home.comcast....24.3-xenon.diff
patch -p1 < linux-2.6.24.3-xenon.diff
done


3. Configure the Kernel.
make ARCH=powerpc CROSS_COMPILE=powerpc64-unknown-linux-gnu- menuconfig

4. Build the Kernel by typing:
make ARCH=powerpc CROSS_COMPILE=powerpc64-unknown-linux-gnu- all

Or if you have ppu-gcc properly set-up: CROSS_COMPILE=ppu-

If everything goes well, you will end up with a file arch/powerpc/boot/zImage.xenon containing the kernel which can be loaded by the XeLL.

Remember, these patches are Experimental!

Nice, but still, is sound and 3d video working? That would be so awesome if yes, it would make me consider buying an Infectus to downgrade my Xbox 360!

Still no sound (use some usb-sound thing).
As for 3d it would require someone to write api's for dri/glx/compositing which would take up LOTS of time.
But since there is allready a very lowlevel 3d gpu library, it should be possible.
When there is an easier hack/exploit and more people will start using free60 then I'm sure it will happen.

Sorry, my mistake.

It's good to know that Free60 wiki is working again!

Whoa! Everyone keeps copying this article out of context all over the Internet.
I sincerely doubt that the Xbox 360 uses a POWERPC architecture.
