Another milestone in Xbox 360 hacking has been reached, an application called freeBOOT will now allow your jtag hacked Xbox 360 to boot a patched kernel / dashboard. Think of this like custom firmware for the PSP, in plain English this means your Xbox 360 can run the latest dashboard with most of the security checks removed. What does this mean to you? Basically you can do anything you want with your Xbox 360. Your console can run anything coded with the official Xbox 360 development kit (XDK) such as the mame emulator and XBMC 360 when released without needing the application / game to be signed by Microsoft. You can connect any hard drive you want to the Xbox 360 and load applications and games from it. An Xbox 360 with a 1TB hard drive? Yes please… hey its cheaper than the official 120gig! The Xbox 360 can now boot games from any region on your Xbox 360 either from DVD or the hard drive. Games can be patched and customized so user created maps for games such as Halo, Gears of War and Call of Duty are now possible. Much more but I will keep this short and sweet...
