"For a completely "hacked" 360 don't expect anything on the scale of the first Xbox - at least not for a long, long time, however you can expect to see a hack of some sort soon - not only from Xecuter(info) but from at least one other group of guys we have spoken to. Unsigned code is looking unlikely atm but booting of raw dumps maybe quite possible - but no where near as much fun or scope as Xbox1 mods. Kudos to M$ for their security on this one, however there is always a way....."
I know this was posted and closed in one of the other threads.
My question as to team xecuter, they state they have a chip in the works, does anyone have any idea as to the possible location of chip placement? From what I have read about the dev of these chips it has everything to do with the laser in the dvd-rom drive itself and nothing to do with anything else. Does anyone care to speculate as to why a chip may be neccesary and not just a firmware flash to the dvd-rom drive itself? I saw someone had been able to dump the dvd-rom firmware, just wondering if a flash was possible, or is the chip necessary as it will be using the firmware on the dvd-rom drive and then manipulating what info is being sent on from there? Just wondering if someone else had more info as to how these first gen chips will work.

I think everyone is afraid to say anything about future 360 hacks now but
Since Xecuter, a respected source, seems to think there will be a hack of some sort soon for the 360 to at least run raw dumps (probably backup isos), anyone care to speculate about this news without mentioning the infamous names that get every interesting thread locked?
How soon? What type of hack? Will it even be a chip? What exactly will it allow for? Etc...
Please don't get this thread locked! I want to hear some more speculation! I know the mods say no speculation, but since this is based on a somewhat factual news items with some info to go by......how can you have discussions without it anyway. Might as well let machines talk back and forth.
