I know this is random, but thanks for porting Doom on the PSP!

Do you guys remember the old days when by just one sd card and a file you could hack your wii and play unlimited games

Imagine if companies put this much effort into securing our machines for us, instead of from us...

I really hope that the PlayStation 4 / Xbox One Security gets Defeated very soon. The PS4 is only Semi-Jailbreaked with a Kernel Exploit on 5.05 or lower.
But the scene is currently dead.

Fun conspiracy theory: xbox red ring was a anti piracy measure to replace hackable xboxes. (I joke but I thought it was funny)

Getting those RGH boot timings down can be a fine art and a test of patience. I've had systems be in range of anywhere from instaboot to 5 minutes, which is why I always loved the JTAG. No fuss, no timings to mess with! Excellent video, my dude.

Meanwhile the Nintendo switch has full Homebrew quicker than any modern console before

Some seriously skilled people out there in the hacking community.

No matter how secure you think your code is, there will be someone out there that can beat it.

The era of JTAGs and MW2 was amazing, feel lucky to have been there lol.

I wouldn't call the 360 a dead system.
Phil Spencer himself even said that there are at least 10 million Xbox 360 players online to this day.

Soldered my first JTAG in late 2009 on my falcon board 360.
It died pretty fast with a RROD. I just sold it off because I didn't want to spend any time or money to get it reballed.
Then in early 2010 I bought a premade jtagged 360 with a jasper board and that is still working to this day.
I even drilled a hole on top of the case to add a fan that draws in air into the case. I also replaced the back fan with 2 noiseblocker 60mm fans.
Now it is almost completely silent and runs much cooler than with just the stock fan.

How will console homebrew change as consoles become more desktop pc like (their OS, hardware ) and out of the box features)??
