XeXMenu v1.0

Team XeDEV released their new homebrew Xbox360 dashboard with FTP support and more…From gx-mod.com: You might be wondering why it's XeDEV who are releasing this.. Since some people left the team, they don't want to retain the "freexex" name anymore. Also changed the name to XeXmenu (this is because XeXLoader is now much more of a menu than just a loader). So enjoy the new stuff : What's news/fixed: – Gametitle extraction from NXEART if possible (toggle)– Games with more than just one XEX will show up multiple times* Embedded FTP Server to transfer your stuff directly from your computer– Use xbox:xbox@ip:21* Use FTP to read/write/delete your onboard flash– Only user flash/flash is able to do that!* Support for all found XEX files. Not just default.xex (toggle)* Shows the content of any GAMES folder on any device– Use GAMES, APPLICATIONS, EMULATORS for auto discovery menu on each device* Switch between games/apps/emus in the discovery menu using RB/LB* Auto scale skins for most resolutions (toggle)* Different help screens for each menu* Use DPad to switch between devices while browsing files* Xbox1 compatibility partition support (if exists)– Xbox1 partition known as "HddX"* Alphanumeric listing for files* No more XEX auto patching when copying DVDs* Manual XEX patching for freeBOOT users* Configuration menu* Real XBox save system for the configuration– Gamesave known as "Unkown Xbox Game"* Chose between different skins from the configuration menu* Support for own skins* many more things we can't remember Press "BACK" for detailed help pages! Note: If you only get a black screen on startup try to delete the XeXmenu savegame known as "Unknown Xbox Game" using system tab in dash. There are some issues with the FTP upload speed for some people at the moment. We're still working on that. This will be fixed in further releases Official Site: n/a, by Team XeDEV (#team-xedev @EFnet)Download: n/a...

XBR-Flash v0.3.6 beta

Trancy released a new version of XBR-Flash. With LFlash it was already possible to update your XBReboot on NAND-16mb consoles directly from your Xbox 360 booted into a Linux Distro like Gentoo (so no need to flash over LPT or USB again). Based on LFlash, XBR-Flash however will now allow you to flash on 256/512mb consoles as well and comes with more additional features. What's new/fixed (since v0.3.1):* Completely rewrote code, so no more Open-Source* Various Bug fixed* No more option -i available* New Options added -kv and -config (meaning keep your KV- or Config-Data on Nand)* New Options added -fullerase and -erasedata (be careful with erase Nand)* Write only Valid Data, empty Blocks wouldn't be written to Nand. Improved write speed and save Nand for useless rewritings, like MS do on update* Fixed bug for full (256/512MB) read and write* 3nd Hotfix for BBM (v0.3.6) Official Site: by Trancy from modcontrol.comDownload (v0.3.1): hereNews-Source: xboxhacker.org Original Source:...

Flash360 v1.0

Redline99 released an XDK (XEX) flasher to overwrite your NAND (like for an XBReboot update) directly from your homebrew Xbox 360!From the readme/nfo: Place in the root dir of a usb drive:updslot0.bin – Xell (Address 0x0C0000 max length 0x040000 bytes, no metadata)updslot1.bin – Rebooter (Address 0x100000 max length 0x140000 bytes, no metadata)updpatch.bin – Rebooter Patches (Address 0x194000 max length 0x004000 bytes, no metadata) updflash.bin – Nand Image File (this must include the metadata or aka spare/ecc bytes) Must be the full nand with exceptions for consoles with a built in Memory Unit.Flash360 will scan the bad block reservation area of the file to be flashed. If it finds blocks that have been remapped then it sets the writing mode to write the file as-is. If it determines that no blocks have been remapped then it sets its write mode to relocate any blocks as it goes along.The block relocator logic will only apply to the Flash partition. This means that it will not try to relocate any block from the built in Memory Unit (if available). A simple check of the KV will be done if the choice to not copy it from the current nand is selected. Flash360 cannot currently get the CPU key to completely verify the KV before writing. If it detects a difference in the first page it will warn you before proceeding. If Flash360 is ran from a HDD, USB or MU, saving the current nand image will be available. The raw dumped nand file will be saved to "D:flashdmp.bin". (same dir as xex) For consoles with built in MU:You can select to save the entire nand or only the Flash partition (66 MiB). This also means you can write just Flash partition (66 MiB) to the nand. When writing the Flash you can select to keep the current Keyvault and Config blocks. This...

Team Jungle: 'All new checks found' – iXtreme LT Progress

We have been reading a lot of hate and bullshit towards Team Jungle. Those haters need to STFU. Seriously. The scene always ends up with a bunch of losers bashing on the efforts of others when they don't get what they want when they want it. Well guess what, if you want something made, do it yourself. W@nkers. Props to Team Jungle and C4E and frankly anyone who develops. From our own experience I can tell you just to ignore these tards – you have far more supporters than detractors. Anyway, Team Jungle posted a new update on their twitter page: All new checks found, all fws (stealth and non-stealth) will fail these checks and get flagged for banning, except...

XEX Resource Extracting

From Mojobojo's Blog: So my goal was to get an application going for extracting assets from the XEX's for the 360. After a couple hours in front of the beloved Hex Editor and a while in my trusted C++ Compiler I got an application going to do just that. Remember that in order to use this you NEED to decrypt and decompress the XEX first (xorloser's XEX tool FTW).
