Actually, if we hide the way we do shit it'll be harder for MS to patch it, how will they patch a hole they don't know how it's beeing exploited? now, sure they can probably figure it out and solve the "problem" the same way hackers do, but if we don't tell them HOW we do things they'll have to figure it out themselves, figuring things out take time... if we give them our knowledge we're supplying them with a shortcut to starting work on closing the hole
No I am sorry but thats crap. Im not one to try and start shit, join in any flaming, or be disrespectful but the whole point of the "scene" is to share ALL info and to be OPEN, the complete opposite of M$. besides, when it gets released they will then be able to get the info and and close the hole. Cat and mouse just like always.
I agree with keeping something quiet until its perfected or ready for release but there was no reason for TX to keep this info a secret. These other guys released the new build.py without needing any new hardware in any way, shape, form, or fashion. Now if you remember TX said new hardware would be needed and that NO other hardware would be able to use this "new" method they have. Im sorry but to me that sounds like them just trying to make more money.
I have nothing against TX, if they want to make tools to aid in modding then fine by me. I am just getting to the point where I cant stand the attitude they have anymore, the "Elite" hardware they release and such. There are other hardware devs out there that make products just as good as they do, sorry to break that to any TX fanboys out there but thats just a simple fact and not an opinion. I get some things from TX, some from others.
All this is beside the point though. It just looks to me that TX got upset because these other guys released info that they wanted to keep secret so they could make money off it. I am sorry but that isnt right. That isnt the point of the "scene". Did anybody see gligli, tmbinc, tiros, ect, ect make money off these hacks??? Nope. Just think about that one for a minute. TX isnt the team xecuter I am used too(dont let my join date fool you, been a lurker for many, many years...my wife can vouch for that )
ps: This isnt a bash against TX or anyone else so dont take offence. This is just a different point of view.
