+ - Xbox360 reset hack yields unsigned code execution->

Submitted by walshy007
walshy007 (906710) writes "A new exploit has been shown which allows unsigned code execution on the xbox360 on all current models. It functions by pulsing the reset pin at a critical time during the checksumming/crypto boot process.

The exploit enables the running of Xell a boot loader which facilitates the running of linux amongst other programs."
