Been tinkering with Xbox stuff since 2001. Be it hardware, software, or otherwise. Under different usernames, I've been involved in: Xbox Linux dev, halo map modding (and some corresponding GUI tools), softmod updated repacks, and lots of really badly thought-out potential attack points to exploit the xbox security system. I've attempted getting the Xbox Alpha Kit software running under virtualization, going as far as to edit the system xbe's in order to skip over nvidia hardware checks, without knowing anything about opcodes and the like (and likely, xbe/exe signatures, which just dawned on me this moment). I've kept my xbox's alive for the past 14 years, and still have a decent library of Xbox and Xbox 360 discs.
