Underground Xbox

Xbox Scene News

Just before E3 2019 last week, something amazing occurred in the Xbox One scene finally!

During E3 2019, Microsoft announced a new Xbox console is coming, and around the same time, underground scene developers also leaked out anonymous they have a new exploit that allows end-users to gain access to the normally protected SystemOS area of the current Xbox One consoles, this is basically an more advanced version of what was release last year that gained previously win32 code execution in UWP devmode, with this new update to original exploit, now you can break out of UWP sandbox and gain proper access to 'SystemOS' on the Xbox One console.

Enjoy having fun! :)

An open-source Xbox kernel alternative, designed for use with XQEMU

Xbox developer @mborgerson has been for a while working on neat 'project' which is building a complete working Xbox kernel for the original Xbox console, and making it completely open-source and not using any copyrighted code from the official Xbox kernel by Microsoft, currently the project still an 'work-in-progress', but its been moving along recently, so its one to keep an on eye on, check out the introduction below and how to build it in its current WIP state for running on the development version of XQEMU. :)
Xbox One Dev Mode - Shell and Win32 code execution

Earlier today, @XVMM posted up some key info on 'getting started' on your path of enlightenment when using the 'dev mode' that is available on all Xbox One consoles, now normally this UWP is sandboxed, but thanks to the anonymous creators if this unique exploit you can now get a shell (cmd.exe) and win32 code execution on Xbox One in UWP Devkit mode.

Normally you can only deploy "sandboxed" UWP containers with very limited access rights, hence this write-up, which is very technical, but its aim at those that want to explore more of inner workings and power of XB1 console itself, and hopefully now with this information out to public, more developers will get on-board and help expand the scene of greatness in the Xbox landscape.

Welcome back XBMP

We all here at MaxConsole, remember the glory days of original Xbox console modding, the main thing to install after you got it flashed or modded was a new dashboard like EvoX or AvaLaunch, and then of course right away installing XBMP with all its plugins, and now the joy of those days can be re-lived on the Xbox One console, as Microsoft surprising enough has helped the Kodi Team to port it over to UWP format and its now rolling out across the world on the Xbox One Store, with Europeans getting the first dibs! :)
