    Any chance to get the jtag on Kernel 8xxx sooner or later?

    I mean because of all this stuff MS did recently (what is their absolute correct way; I think in some cases) the hackers must be active now again or is there no way because of the changed bootloader? Is there someone who is trying something in that way?

    I believe the bootloader is in the CPU (I cant say for certain), although something may (please god) come up, it wont likely happen soon since a new hack is required.

    All I can say is that my banned console wont be upgraded for the next few years.

    I just wish the hackers announced the hack the day BEFORE the summer 09 dashboard, that is what really gets to me.

    They did warn us and made a few posts here telling people not to upgrade and most did wait for awhile, but now most people have and been banned. This on the other hand maybe of some help now http://www.divineo.com/cgi-bin/div-us/hb-360-cygnos2.html I am not sure to be honest, but it does say you can downgrade so it maybe a work around right there.

    The earliest I heard was in the afternoon after the update was released.

    Well I guess some of us got the news before you then, I knew not to update. So now I got an unused sammy to mess with now.

    But hey it happened and now most people got a choice, play for free offline or just go snag a used console. They aren't as hard to find as I thought.

    Description of Cygnos360 says:

    Some features of the new Cygnos360 V2.0 - downgrade Xbox360 (production before August 2007 and non-HDMI)

    So, is it possible to downgrade kernel 8955 with this?

    also depends on where the 1bl is installed, if its in the CPU and every old kernel is blacklisted then no chance what so ever (well, for most people anyway).

    The only option is to either buy a new console or wait and hope that a new exploit is found.

    No, you can not.
    Pretty much once you hit the 8xxx dash, there is no going back yet.
    The problem being that the update blows an efuse which stops the hack from being done, if the chip was install before hand then it would have used there virtual efuse and keep it safe.

    So in short at this point you'll need a new xbox or just wait and see what comes next.

    there won't be anything new for 8x kernals how i see it, this hack is already pretty old as it is, unless i'm wrong.

    either find an old box or go without it.

    only thing i like about it is playin backups off hd, not having to buy dl discs anymore is a huge plus.

    i might have to chase one down at some point.

    It is a bit of an old hack, its just now being pushed into the light more and growing in leaps and bounds everyday.
    I think its catching more eyes cause the new fw is not likely to be seen for free if at all now. I just love I can now play import games with the click of a button. Yes playing from the hd is nice no more blowing 60 dollars every few months on discs at bestbuy.

    Only down side is you got freeboot or xbr, so its like back with evox and unleashx. Haha which to choose.

    Its nothing like that at all, the xbr is just the 360 dash with the security checks removed, you still cant boot hard drive games from it without the disc, you need xex loader, then on top of that it isnt fully stable yet, needs more patching for the time being. As for people on about a downgrade, the reason you wont see a downgrade is because the bootloader was changer with the Aug 09 update, older firmwares wont boot due to the fuses. The modded 360s uses virtual fuses to by-pass this security check. There are some good advantages with xbr like using any unofficial hard drive, full unsigned code etc, but they all have drawbacks, the unofficial hard drive if mounted like on a normal 360 cant be read as there isnt a program to do that. You can use an external usb hard-drive, all the games show as demos upto now, as that hasnt been worked out, and nobodys managed to remove the security check to load games from the official hard-drive without the disc. There is something called 360menu which like like evox still no ftp etc but is an alternative to normal nxe dash for now. Xell is now installed on the flash so can be booted via any usb device being plugged into the rear usb, or the green windows button on the remote.
