Episode 15 – Modding – Xbox Softmod

February 10th, 2008 by Patchy
For Full Disclosures first Modding episode, we show you how to turn your old Xbox that’s collecting dust, into a ultimate gaming/media playing/linux machine without opening the case. We use a specially crafted save game that exploits a vulnerability in Mech Assault to install a new Dashboard on the Xbox. The Xbox Media Center dashboard allows you to manage your music and videos, play your old favorite games with emulators, and it allows you to play backed up Xbox games. Furthermore, you can install various versions of Linux.
