Guide: XBox 360 Hack - Free60 Homebrew With No Chip Needed
Today French site Logic-Sunrise.com (linked above) has published a guide based on the Free60 Exploit and the work of Tiros.
For those seeking to give it a try, to quote: "We're going to explain you the Free60 exploit, which consists in launching decrypted code (hello word) on a Xbox 360 system.
Once this bug has been well exploited, It will be possible, in a near future, to use your Xbox 360 as a media center, and for example lauch XBMC, or homebrews (megadrive, SNES emulators, and others) and maybe Xbox 360 games from the hard disk as well, everything a Xbox 1st generation did but more powerfully !
But before being there, there is a long way to do, even if the basis is here : it's now possible to load decrypted code on Xbox 360 system. It's been for 4years we have waiting for this huge news !
This tutorial is written in order to explain the way to hack you Xbox 360. No chips needed !
What you need :
- a Xbox 360 XENON system
- parallel port adaptater
- NAND Pro, available here : http://www.logic-sunrise.com/telecha...-nand-pro.html
- solder gear
- a PC with parallel port (printer port)
- three 330 Ohms resistances
Let's Go ! :
1 - 1 - Open up your Xbox 360 system
You can find the tutorial here : http://www.logic-sunrise.com/dossier...-xbox-360.html
2 - link the motherboard solder points to the parallel port ones :
3 - Download and install the NAND Pro, available in download here : http://www.logic-sunrise.com/telecha...-nand-pro.html Then unzip the package, and install the port95nt.exe
You must reboot your PC. Once on Windows, launch a CMD MsDOS (start, run, cmd, then press enter). Run in the unzipped directory : NandPro.exe, writing in the CMD : NandPro.exe lpt: -r16 nand.bin
NandPro is going to test all you parallel ports, and recover you system Nand. Make sure you keep it
With a parallel port, the operation can take 30mins. Once the thing is done, you should get your nand.bin, about 16Mb
Operation success !
Now you can Write the nand, by a hacked one (xenon_hack.bin for example), typing : NandPro.exe lpt: -w16 nand.bin

The tutorial is well written, but they blatantly took relapse's photo and tried to put their watermark over his without his permission. Otherwise, it's a nice guide.
