NEW PRODUCT – Hacking the Xbox, An Introduction to Reverse Engineering by Andrew “bunnie” Huang
NEW PRODUCT – Hacking the Xbox, An Introduction to Reverse Engineering by Andrew “bunnie” Huang. This hands-on guide to hacking was canceled by the original publisher, Wiley, out of fear of DMCA-related lawsuits. After a period of direct distribution by the author, “Hacking the Xbox” is brought to you by the No Starch Press and now at Adafruit. The book begins with a few step-by-step tutorials on hardware modifications that teaches basic hacking techniques as well as essential reverse engineering skills. The book progresses into a discussion of the Xbox security mechanisms and other advanced hacking topics, with an emphasis on educating the readers on the important subjects of computer security and reverse engineering. Hacking the Xbox includes numerous practical guides, such as where to get hacking gear, soldering techniques, debugging tips and an Xbox hardware reference guide.
“Although it’s a technical book, it unfolds like a spy novel.” –SLASHDOT (more reviews!)
