I want WIndows 10, how can I upgrade now for free?

Normal Users -
Simply download the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool from Microsoft and follow the on screen instructions.

Advanced Users - We have mirrors of the EN-GB and EN-US ISO on our members only FTP, however we have also provided links to download an official ISO directly from Microsoft. Please note if you force the upgrade with an ISO it must be for the version of WIndows you would be automatically upgraded to. For example Windows 8 Home to Windows 10 Home, you can't upgrade from Windows 8 home to Windows 10 Professional for free, it has to be the same edition of Windows. You must...

If you enjoy independent websites like Digiex that are setup by people passionate about a certain subject, for example gaming, you need to help us and fellow webmasters out by contacting ICANN and letting them know you object to any release of personal information without a court order.

ICANN are responsible for domain names on the internet, under proposed new guidelines websites associated to "commercial activity" (e.g. simply having adverts the site to help pay the server costs) will no longer be able to protect their private information with WHOIS protection services.

Without WHOIS protection anyone in the world can freely look up the contact details of the person who owns a domain name. These contact details have to be valid otherwise the domain can be taken away from the owner.

We feel these proposed changes will greatly limit peoples freedom on the internet, discouraging many people from setting up websites on subjects they are passionate about in the future.

We hope many of our readers can take a few moments to do this and help not just Digiex, but many of the people behind other website you might also browse. Thank you.

Xenia is a free and open-source emulator for Windows 8 / 10 that allows Xbox 360 games to be played on a PC.

The emulator is now capable of playing a handful of Xbox 360 titles at full speed, so we thought it was now worth posting about. At the moment most games have various graphical problems, still Xenia has made great progress in emulating the Xbox 360. Who knows we might all be playing classics such as the Gears and Halo trilogies on the PC in 1080p 60fps sooner than we think!

2D games such as Sonic 4 Episode 2 now emulate very well:

A free custom firmware has now been released for the Nintendo 3DS, named Pasta CFW, this firmware removes the signature checks from the 3DS's system software.

Essentially this means if you have an Nintendo 3DS [3DS, 3DS XL, 2DS, New 3DS] and want the benefits Gateway Flashcard owners have, such as been able to install unsigned CIA files, this is what you now have without buying an expensive flashcard.

Some things you can do with this firmware include:
  • Install .cia (.exe's for the 3DS) apps, emulators and tools
  • Dump roms of your games, then convert the games to cia files, meaning they can be installed and launched from the 3DS's home screen without the cartridge in your console
  • Use SaveDataFiler to dump and backup your save games from your game cartridges
  • Modify / hack games, their is already a mod for some of the Pokemon games which changes the story
  • Play games from any region
You will need a copy of the game Cubic Ninja to install this custom firmware, if we have got you interested and would like a little project to complete this bank holiday weekend, then Digiex has an easy to follow tutorials ready and waiting for you.

Here at Digiex we always try to cover the alternate side of owning a console, by alternate side we mean things the mainstream websites like Kotaku would never cover, such as hacking your console to run homebrew applications and emulators, or even other cool things that were never intended to be done with the console by the manufacturer.

The Nintendo 3DS and all its variants (3DS, 3DS XL, 2DS and the New 3DS) have all been hacked wide open recently, allowing homebrew and emulators to be run on any 3DS with 9.2 or lower firmware installed it on.

We currently have a new Nintendo 3DS tutorial section covering both the Ninjhax Exploit and the new Web Browser exploit released by Gateway, which esentially allows you full control over a 3DS.

In addition we now have a download category for Nintendo 3DS Downloads which includes Apps, Game Updates, Demos, Emulators and other useful content.

If you have a 3DS we would encourage you to join in with the up and coming 3DS scene, we intend to provide detailed tutorials where we can.
A group calling itself H4LT has leaked the full version of Microsoft's official Xbox One SDK (software development kit) from November 2014.

The leak of the SDK doesn't mean that everyone can start launching games and apps on Xbox One, developers must still register and be approved by Microsoft before doing so. But with the SDK in the hands of the public, there's the possibility that developers could create homebrew apps and modifications for the console further down the line once a hack or exploit is discovered for the Xbox One.
Just quick post to wish all our members old and new a Merry Christmas! We hope you all enjoy a well-earned rest, do let us know if you got anything nice in the comments!
If you are reading back this far and wonder where all the news from 2010 to 2014 is, we unfortunately had no way to import the news we posted on the old vBulletin CMS to XenForo, however as most of our news was essentially bringing certain forum topics to peoples attention we don't feel we really lost anything of value, as all forum topics have been imported and redirect from their old links perfectly. Older news from the vBulletin 3 days (2007 to August 2010) is still in the general forums, as we used a portal for the news back then which posted it in the forum, essentially like we're doing now on XenForo.

As you might have noticed I have copied and pasted all the news articles we had from 2014 to present, so we have almost three years worth of front page content regardless.

Thank you for sticking with us during this upgrade.
