    1. You need an Xbox with a kernel version of 4532 or 4548. You can check your kernel version in "System -> Console Settings -> System Info". The line at the bottom contains your kernel version in the format K:2.0.nnnn.0, where nnnn is your four digit kernel version. The kernel version can be older (lower number) than 4532 or 4548, but not newer (higher number). If you already have a newer version, there is nothing you can do right now. If you buy an Xbox, make sure that its manufacturing date is before 09 January 2007, so that the kernel version is 4548 or older. You can see the manufacturing date ("MFR Date") through the carton without opening it. Note, I have just got a new UK core pack with a MFG date of 19th June 2007, with all the new heatsink inside and the kernel version was one of the 2000 ones, so very old kernel on brand new xbox 360s. Note, I have just bought a premium pack with a MFG date of 16th May 2006, and the kernel version was 5759, so a new kernel on a 2006's Xbox 360.

    2. Upgrading the kernel to 4532
    If your kernel version is older than 4532 or 4548, you can update to one of these versions. Do not update to a version newer than 4598! You won't be able to downgrade! If you have a pre-4532 kernel, you need to get the file HD_DVD_10-2006.zip, check the MD5SUM to be cd4db8e2c94266ab73513c361dd5b8f6 (important!), burn it to a CD, and insert the CD into your Xbox 360. The program will update your machine to kernel version 4532. This file is an authentic Microsoft update application, but is not available on Microsoft's servers any more. If you own an Xbox, it should be legal for you to download and run this application.
    IMPORTANT:if you use a HDD and previously canceled a XBOX Live Update request, then you must remove the HDD to prevent the Kernel updater using the cached Kernel Updater, which is newer then the Kernel 4532! If you don't remove the HDD, then the Kernel Updater will use the cached Kernel Updater from the HDD and not from the CD!

    3. Flashing the DVD-ROM Drive
    Different tactics depending on the DVD model in your box. There are some excellent Firmware Flashing Tutorials on the net, which we won't link here for site policy reasons.
    This does mean opening your Xbox 360 as such warranty is void, Microsoft are known to be working on a way of checking this and banning any flashed Xbox 360's from Xbox Live


    4. Buy King Kong and make an image
    There are two versions of King Kong available. The patcher currently does not work with the newer "classics" version of "King Kong". If in doubt, buy the oldest version you can get. Backing up won't be covered here for site policy reasons, but the net is your friend again.


    5. Patch your King Kong image
    Patch your King Kong ISO with either the windows exe or compile the source for Linux. If you're using the windows patch, you will need to download cygwin1.dll and put it into your windows/system32 folder.
    Then make sure shader.bin, the exe, and your King Kong ISO are in the same folder and run:
    win_patch.exe <name of iso> or ./linux_patch <name of iso>
    After your ISO is patched, burn it like a normal game.

    6. Get Linux
    �This LiveCD is based on the BETA Gentoo LiveCD. It includes our X.org framebuffer driver and a Gnome Desktop environment. Download size is around 600MB.�
    Use the BETA v2 release or later in case you have a Samsung drive. Hitachi drive uses do not need to care. You may use rewriteable medias for the distributions as they may improve now in short distances... :-)

    7. Get it started
    Switch on your Xbox 360, and load up the patched King Kong, and press 'start' on the title screen. Wait until the tray opens. Insert the Linux CD. Close the tray. A few second later, you should be greeted by some penguins.


    8. Install it to harddisk (optional)

    If you fail an update, you have to restore a working copy of that update for the console to be usable again.

    Also, this should be cleared up: THIS thread talks about an exploit from 2 years ago.

    Coincidentally, a new one was announced today.

    Both will become inaccessible if you download the update released today.

    if you look on X-S then you'll see theres somthing new..... but for it to work you cant update to the new dash

    We kept on working on this idea, and it worked out. pretty well. We use JTAG to program the DMA target addr, and then SMC to trigger the DMA read. The exploit itself is based on the old 4532 exploit.

    The magic is how we launch 4532 - there is a "backdoor" for manufacturing since CB 1920. We have been able to restore the newer CD versions for all hardware types.

    This means:
    - We can boot own code in HV context ~5s after boot, before any video output, right after the kernel runs.
    - we need to reflash the flash, and add 3 resistors for the JTAG (no modchip required! but you might want a dual-nand modchip),
    - 8498 kills this by updating the bootloader - it blacklists 4532/4548. it also does hw init stuff which might interefere with the jtag hack, we don't know yet.
    - we have a proof of concept hack, we will release it SOON (a matter of hours/days, not more - promised.).
    - DON'T UPDATE to summer 09. Did i already say this?
    - you don't need to know your cpu key. You can update to all BUT summer '09. you don't need a dvdrom.
    - It works on all xenon, zephyr, falcon, opus, jasper. Unless you have updated to 849x. Then you're screwed.
