90% of the info came from personal reserch from our company into the matter, hence there are no links. However there is a lot of spec sheets for amtel chips out there, if there was any chance of brute force working, the meothod would be examine the flash codes from each chip and find a pattern (multilayerchips only) then try brute force. Does anyone have a spare jtag programmer lying around i could borrow?

This may seem like a stupid question, but has anyone tried distributed computing to crack the xbox private signing key? Or would that not work.... Is it the right kind of encryption? Just thougt I'd ask.

thats a pretty liberal guess, lol, i figure it will be the year 5000 or so
Current estimates of computing power would take more energy than the sun has. The biggest key to be factored currently is 576 bits (took 2 years)...the xbox is 2048 bits. This means that without huge jumps in computing power it will take 10^444 (thats a 1 followed by 444 zeros) times as long to crack it....so never.

ok , just hear me out on this one. i have not done this yet so it is purly speciation.
if u had a xbox 1.0 - 1.5 with all the tosp points together for flashing, couldnt u grab the eeprom chip from xbox v1.6 and solder it inplace from the older xbox and then flash it. or use a eeprom programer to write the data to the chip?

The eeprom is not the same chip as a tsop. 1.6 boxes have an eeprom chip, that is flashable, but they do not have a tsop (where the bios is stored). The eeprom just holds info such as region, serial number, video mode, parental settings....etc
