New XBOX 360 250GB (S / Slim / Whatever) Hacked

Team Xecuter have been working closely with Team Jungle & C4E for several weeks now on the new Xbox 360 250GB Model (some call it 360 S or 360 Slim). We are pleased to officially announce that the team has successfully patched the DVD Rom to be able to play backups. This is the first successful step and there is much work still to be done for the general public's consumption. [youtube BbRvrwWoSJY nolink] Never Say Never 😉 Update: Just to answer a few comments: Comment: It's fake Answer: We are Xecuter, C4E and Team Jungle. Duh. Comment: …Get rich quick scheme Answer: You mean like all the other free firmwares released ? Xecuter finance everything in the group so you don't have to. Comment: Does anyone knows a cheap decapping service in Europe? Answer: If only they still used the MT1319L, eh? 😉 We love it when something like this gets released, all the crazies come out of the woodwork craving for a bit of the spotlight. The console scene never changes does it? Just enjoy the fact that a public method to hack your shiny new 360 will be available shortly. Discuss the news on our forums:...

XM360 v1.8d

Node21 (Team XeDev) now released XM360 v1.8d 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 (since v1.7): * Fixed fact that you couldn't sort by ratings or raters in the collection manager (v1.8) * Fixed new scraper (1.7b) getting ratings wrong. I made a change to the file format that breaks compatibility with old xbla_titles.csv, so make sure you are not using an old version of the file. (v1.8) * Fixed initial scan crashing the 360 if there was no existing content.bin file. (v1.8) * xm360_server is now aware of the last time xbla_titles.csv and dlc_titles.csv were generated. Every 360 that connects to xm360_server will *automatically* update the xbla_titles.csv and dlc_titles.csv on that 360. Furthermore, you can regenerate, or replace those files without stopping xm360_server from running. So, I leave the server running all the time, 24/7. I have scheduled a /X and a /D every night at midnight as well. It's all invisible without any hands on maintenance. Basically, this feature means you shouldn't ever have to worry about moving these files to your 360 anymore. On the server, these files should be in the same place as content.bin. (v1.8) * Also, if you put an xm360.xex in that same directory, xm360 will *also* update itself if the version there is newer than the version that is running. It will automatically restart if this happens. This is a moot feature though, unfortunately. (v1.8) * A request was made to include the DLC filename for missing DLC in the DLC_report.txt (v1.8b) * A suggestion from a donater: The first scene now has the ability to seperate GOD from XBLA (use RB to toggle) (v1.8c) * The server will now wait for you to hit enter after scraping XBLA or DLC (v1.8c) * The server...
