System Ping Check Removal v0.1 – No More 30ms Limit

Team FBDev released System Ping Check Removal v0.1 for homebrew 360: What is this? This patch will remove the 30ms check on the key exchange from xbox to xbox over system link. This was known as the "30ms ping limit". It seems that only the client needs the patch. 1) Make sure you have Dashlaunch v1.0 installed. 2) Place Kxam.patch in the root of usb or hdd. Hopefully this will encourage people to stay off of xbox live with hacked xboxs as there is no real reason for it. Usage – FreeBoot 0.032 with DashLaunch 1.0 (kernel 9199) – An internal harddrive and/or usb stick (check DashLaunch 1.0 readme) – The file from this release on the root of it (kxam.patch) – Power up Xlink Kai(info) – And see you online! Known Bugs? None really, its possible some games have internal Pinglimits.. They'll need to be removed by doing MemoryPatches (gametrainer per example) Official Site: n/a, by FBDev Download: n/a (might be illegal under DMCA/EUCD) News-Source:...

Freehood360 v1.0 RC1 – Xbox 360 Neighbourhood for JTAG's

Xerax released Freehood360 v1.0 RC1 to be used with homebrew360s: I made this application since I wanted to give the JTAG community the ability to use official tools and tools the lucky Devkit owners can have. I started coding in Early may 2010 and development got a bit slow due to many things; Exams, Busy with my Fiance, Reach Beta, Mapping Plugins for Reach, Other projects, Lazyness and other stuff. Also a huge problem of not being about to rig my dev up to be able to test and not having a JTAG so development of the browser was restricted to coding on friends computers VIA Teamviewer. Then the added bonus of the second i finish school and can really press on with coming, Micrsoft decided to Brick my Dev, so i had to go back to developing over Teamviewer. But i managed to pull my finger out and deliver this application. I hope you enjoy it and i might be releasing more features and updates depending on if you guys want it and how busy i become with more advanced school over the next two years, Who knows? I hope you enjoy and i suppose here is my gift to the JTAG Community. Features in RC1: – Add/Edit/Removal of Devices in the Applcation. – Ability to browse files on all devices in or on the xbox (Hdd1, HddX, Flash, Usbi, Memcardi ect) – Look and feel of Xbox 360 Neighbourhood in the Xbox 360 SDK – Download and Upload files directly to the Device. – Supports Infinite amout of JTAG's (But who has more than 10 at the most… lol.) – Support for Development Kits (Reviewer, Test, Stress Test, Demo ect) – Exception catching, so it shouldn't be a bitch and through a emo fit if you do something stupid. – Creation of Folders – Creation of Text...

XM360 v1.7

Node21 (Team XeDev) now released XM360 v1.7 to the public, a tool running on homebrew 360s that will allow to organize, scan and unlock XBLA and DLC content. What's new/fixed: * Fix DLC where multiple DLCs are actually contained in the same file. They will now display properly, get transferred properly, and get deleted properly. * Fix ignored DLC not being remembered between session. I broke this a couple of versions back, I think. * Changed code so that if you have multiple files queued up, it will only transfer one at a time. Three at a time was cool, but one at a time is faster. * Removed the "new unlock" that was in 1.7 until I can get a handle on why it didn't always work. May be re-introduced later. * Finally, and maybe most interestingly, the old perl scripts for scraping DLC and XBLA content have been rewritten in C++, and are now included as features of xm360_server.exe * One of the key features of this is that it is no longer silent while running. It will keep you updated on what it is working on. Sometimes the MS server takes a long time * to respond, so it's best to just be patient. * Also, the first line of the generated CSV file is now the date that it was run on. This allows *subsequent* runs to only UPDATE the content that MS says has changed. This * saves CONSIDERABLE time. XM360 has been modified to accept CSV file either with the date, or without…so old CSV files (or ones generated by the perl scripts) will not break * XM360…however, that's only true of version 1.7b and above…anything earlier will choke on a CSV file with a date at the top.
