Linux On X360 Without A Dvd Drive
Posted 28 February 2010 - 06:27 AM
Ok so if I have a jtagg'd xbox 360, is it possible to install Ubuntu onto it without a working dvd drive?
I mean you could use unbetbootin to install ubuntu to the usb thumb drive?

If you can JTAG than buy a DVD-Rom, extract the key via decrypting keyvault and flash a firmware to it. Or simply use Xellous to set key on that DVD-Rom so it's usable with games as well.
Just for the note: Linux doesn't run well on the 360 yet. This is due to Xell only having 700mhz of processing power access of 1 core. Wait till we get all 3 cores runnig at 3Ghz, even I will get a spare HDD and run linux in it.

Wait, so how long do you think this will take, and I am not quite sure why they can't allow the full power of the 360, I mean why is it severely underclocked?
Because it is a custom Processor not a normal PPC , it has a different instruction set , it uses efuses. A lot of reasons why they haven't figured it out. It is called reverse engineering , they don't have everything they need right in front of them so they have too figure it out. Give it time the Jtag mod has not been out "that" long , it would be nice though too have all cores running at full speed.

Another thing to keep in mind is that the "OS" the dashboard for the 360 is in flash so it is the first thing the 360 checks. Read the original article on how the 360 mod works , it is very technical but it will help to understand how the boot process works. At this point the limitation in linux comes from lack of knowledge in regards to the CPU on the 360 , if they knew what they needed to program to get them working they would have and they will in time , if people work on it.
