XBMC4XBOX v3.0.1 Stable

From the press release: We are pleased to announce stable version 3.0.1 of the popular media center platform XBMC for the 1st generation XBOX (now called XBMC4XBOX). A huge amount of work has been put into this, and it features numerous additions and improvements over the last release such as: * librtmp Support (http://rtmpdump.mplayerhq.hu/) to support many online video streaming services. * Updates to dvdplayer�s ffmpeg libraries, including some tweaks for additional speed. Performance with h.264 for example is much improved from previous releases thanks to plenty of optimisations upstream. * Many improvements and bug fixes to the video/music libraries and scrapers. * Python updated to 2.4.6 as well as improved compatibility for addons intended for mainline XBMC. * Support for encoding CD�s to the FLAC format. * We now ship with a customised version of the Confluence skin optimised for the XBOX. * Bug fixes and updates to many core components such as Samba and libCurl – such as compatibility with Windows 7 shares. and plenty more! Join the community at http://www.xbmc4xbox.org. Nightly builds can be downloaded from http://www.xbmcsvn.com, where the stable release should also soon be available. Further information and history XBMC4XBOX was once called XBMC (XBOX Media Center), then it was ported to other platforms and became plain XBMC or XBMC Media Center without the XBOX connection. To differentiate our version from the mainline multiplatform XBMC we renamed to XBMC4XBOX. Apart from the name the next noticable thing is the changed version numbering. The last official release was 9.11 Camelot, which at the time was more closely connected to the multiplatform XBMC that had been in development for some time. We have reverted to version numbering that doesn't include a reference to a date for release. Now it's a simple major.minor version – which is what was used also before XBOX Media Center became XBMC. New...

Team Xecuter: New Dash Update Info and 0225 Unlock Update

From team-xecuter.com: QUOTE For many weeks a dedicated team has been hard at work in preparation for the release of the new dash which started to roll out today (2.0.13146). Although we have been quiet in recent weeks, work has been ferocious with a large group of talented, and very well known scene individuals, busting their asses to make sure that the work of the 360 scene keeps on rolling. So now that the rollout has started, the team can actually start to implement much of the work into releases for public consumption. Here are some things of note so you have a clue of what's coming: * After the update the drive fw is also updated with a new stock fw, rendering the drive unable to play backups (for now). * When the drives are flashed back again with LT fw the previous AP2.5 patched titles are no longer booting (expected and will be updated with new XBC and 0800) * It seems that the first update has only been sent to Liteon DG-16D2S and Liteon DG-16D4S drives (Unconfirmed) * The key location on phat models is now in a different area, so a new JF will be released to accommodate this change which was already anticipated in advance. * There has been EXTENSIVE progress with all the new AP2.5 challenges. New 0800 BENQ fw is almost ready. * There is a new XBC (Xbox Backup Creator) that has been designed alongside the new 0800 ripping fw, you'll love it * There will be new LT fw's for all of the new versions that have been released. * XGD3 progress is being made and there will be an update on this soon. * We have received unverified reports that after the update to a 9504 slim drive the write protect was enabled like the 0225 drives (Unconfirmed) *...

New Xbox 360 System Update Starts Rolling Out

As leaked a few days ago, Microsoft is rolling out the new dashboard upgrade (2.0.13146.0) starting today. We of course suggest people with a modified DVD FW do NOT update for now until the update has been analysed, but as we know from the beta dashboards this update will probably flash your DVD firmware with a new one (mostly done to support the XGD3 disc format). If you decide to upgrade anyway, we HIGHLY suggest you get your DVD KEY before the update. You can then eventually try to reflash the modified FW after the update is done. But a new modified FW will probably be required (certainly to support those new XGD3 discs). From majornelson.com I am happy to announce that, as a part of a new Xbox 360 System Update, we're expanding our integration with PayPal to allow U.S. and international Xbox LIVE users to make purchases on their Xbox 360 consoles with their PayPal accounts.* Once you've linked your PayPal account to your Xbox LIVE account on Xbox.com, you'll be off and running to use it as a billing option, allowing you to buy content such as Microsoft Points, Xbox LIVE Gold subscriptions and Games on Demand titles. We are rolling out the Xbox 360 System Update gradually to all Xbox LIVE users starting today and throughout the next couple weeks to ensure a high quality deployment. Just like any other update to our service, you will know you've received it when you turn on your Xbox 360 console, connect to Xbox LIVE and receive a notification to download the update. It's important to note that it may take a few days to make its way around the globe. Thanks for your patience if you don't get it right away! This particular update will also bring an auto-standby feature that places your console on standby if...

Xbox 360 Spring 2011 update launches May 19, adds PayPal; Avatar Kinect coming May 27

Source: Joystiq Even before that new app smell has worn off from Hulu Plus, Microsoft will launch its annual spring update for the Xbox 360 Dashboard. Images sent to Joystiq by a Microsoft tech support employee reveal that the next Dashboard update will begin rolling out on May 19. According to the documents, the update will be distributed in six separate waves between May 19 and May 30 "to ensure a high quality deployment." Additionally, while not technically part of the automatic update, Avatar Kinect is listed for a May 27 arrival as a separate download. Aside from offering support for the new Microsoft disc format — which will "be used in future game titles releasing later in 2011" — the spring system update will enable PayPal support on the console, extending the payment option "to new international markets." PayPal will be "the only user facing feature" of the update. Microsoft had yet to respond to request for comment as of...

MOLEXT – Molex On The Move !

We would like to give a big shout out to our friends over at XCONSOLES.COM who sent us a brand new product from the USA called the "MOLEXT" which will be right up your street if you are a mobile modder with an X360USB PRO The scene has been crying out for a portable Molex device that is both high performing and high quality at the same time without busting the bank balance. Designed and Made in the good 'ole USA, this unassuming little gizmo knocked our socks off at Xecuter HQ with its outstanding performance ! We expected to get maybe 5 or 10 good flashes of a drive (including a full eject cycle just to give the 12v a solid workout). Boy, were we wrong. With just 2 alkaline 9v batteries we were able to do 112 drive flashes before the battery indicators started to go red !!! Out of all the DIY portable molex devices we have ever tested – this is the first professionally manufactured product that is as good as it gets and is a must for any serious mobile modder, because lets face it if you are a pro and you are mobile, in all probability you own a laptop or netbook already and you want to be flashing 10 drives in 10 minutes – not 2 hours, right ? We can't wait for these to be on sale to the public. We're told that Radio Shack are looking to pick these up and there are will also be a distribution program setup for other wholesalers and retailers. We will look at buying a large quantity for our X360USB PRO customers so we will be able to save you a few $$. Features: Portable Molex Power Supply 2 x 9v Alkaline Batteries AC/DC Pass through (Wall socket / Car Adapter etc) Dual Battery...
