I don't mean steal the X-Box and computer either! I read a very intresting article in my brother's Popular Science Magazine...
Here it is:
"For hackers, the X in Microsoft's Xbox might as well stand for Pandora's.
Xbox hacking is the subject of a controversial new book, Hacking the Xbox (No Starch Press; $25), and the focus of a passionate geek uprising.
Xbox hacks alter the basic code, called the BIOS, to let it run Linux (see "The Chipless Linux Install" below) or, with a mod chip, any other code you can find or write. These chips are soldered onto the motherboard and give you not only a full Linux PC but an Xbox that can back up games to the hard drive, emulate other consoles, even play wacky Japanese import games. Better still, the mod chip can be turned on and off with an external switch, so Microsoft never has to know it's there. (The company can detect?and ban?BIOS-modded boxes on Xbox Live.)
While Microsoft clearly doesn't approve of the chips, it hasn't sued any hackers ... yet. But Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo have won several multimillion-dollar lawsuits against mod chip manufacturers and distributors. Last year, a 22-year-old Virginian named David "krazy8" Rocci got five months in the slammer and $28,500 in fines for selling hundreds of mod chips through his site, isonews.com.
The feds won't knock on your door for buying or installing a mod chip, but doing so will void your warranty. And because you're messing with fundamental code, potential for permanent damage is high. So before you open this box, be certain you're ready for what's inside."
