What's stopping MS from challenging ALL games with AP2.5? Why only 6 games?
Also, is it possible to make a non-live safe F/W that will respond with challenges good enough to make a backup boot? Removing the need to make new backups every time the challenges change.
I thought X-S policy was to keep backups off live anyways.
I'm sure there are plenty of people that have absolutely no interest in playing backups on live, yet missed the chance for Jtag. These people still want the latest dashboards for playing the latest games, but don't care about being live safe.
exactly what I'm looking for...
I have 2 systems here @ home, one still using original fw, never modded and thus live safe (of course) and my old xbox system which was banned with 9199 (thus preventing me from jtag-ing it).
what I wanted to do is boot anything just like what used to be done with old Xtreme 5.* releases that didn't need to be stealth at all.
From what I understand now, the problem lies not on the DVD fw , but on the dashboard + disc data combo, as the challenge / response tables are changing with every dashboard update.
As we have just a few challenge / response matches at the moment I guess it would be impossible to do, but if we have more data, couldn't we work onto something like a dummy response that would always return something valid? not meant to be live safe, just to boot every piece of game we burnt withouth having to worry with patches and stuff.
in the OP`s faq there is something about some "fake" patches which allows you to boot your games but are not live safe.
would those patches work on future dashboard updates?
