We might be using Xbox One's now, but before there was this thing called XB1 in our living room taking space, there was amazing new device released 5,218 days ago, that ended up being the de-facto standard for streaming media from our PC's and direct from the 'net, when XBMC was born.
So many things have changed in the 'scene world' since those amazing first Xbox days, so its good to see a team out there still working on the original core of XBMC and adding in little features and improvements for all those people still madly in love with the green box.
XBMC4Xbox 3.5.3 has been released. A smaller update again, but includes some weather and scraper fixes, and some library updates.
Changes since 3.5.1 include:
Thanks to Dom and tim619 for contributing patches.

Team-Xecuter has been famous for over a decade in hacking into the original Xbox and Xbox 360, and hopefully in the near future the Xbox One, but it seems someone decided to turn the tables on them and hack TX's big official support forum.
Here is official statement from TX regarding what happen:
We recently moved to a new server and stupidly left our backend open for an easy attack which has now been fixed.
Luckily the guys who gained access left their muddy prints all over the place so it was easy to clean up. What we did find out was more interesting. Who did it, why they did it.
If you want a quality hack, use someone who isn't going to leave their signature all over the place and take 5 minutes to find out who they are and have half their team rat out the other half. In short - don't hire these guys for the job: http://xbl.services http://refaced.org
For the last 12 years our community of 282,000+ members have always had the security of knowing that we have never used their information for any purpose other than to be part of the Xecuter community. You will now be pleased to hear these group of hackers tried to steal the accounts to various high level staff and admin of the se7ensins community, who are also part of the Xecuter community, so they came in to grab our entire database. Hackers have been trying to do this for years and this weekend succeeded due to a stupid failure on our part to button up a few holes in our backed after we moved to a new server, making it easier for lesser skilled individuals.
If you have an account with us you can now assume that your email and password is now in their possession. We highly recommend you change your password here on the Xecuter forums and if you use the password anywhere else that you change it too - there is a maximum probability that it is now, or will be in the very near future compromised. No passwords are stored in clear text of course, they are all hashed but we are very skilled in this area and know there are ways around this so we can only assume they know the same tricks that we do so it is only a matter of time. These guys attempted to install a crappy keylogger too, it didn't work of course, it was a mess so no worries there.
We're not sure who to reach out to at se7ensins but i'm sure this will no doubt reach their ears in good time.
We are reporting this news since alot of Xbox and Xbox 360'ers use our forum site, and just might have similar passwords out there, and as warning to other website admins that run similar 'scene' sites keep an eye out for this horrible group of messy bad hackers.
It most likely will be a few weeks before we get official sales tracking info on what console did the most sales over the American Thanksgiving long weekend, famously called Black Friday / Cyber Monday, but one market research firm is claiming the Microsoft Xbox One came out as the King of Hill for holiday sales so far.
The Xbox One was on sale for $330 at a number of big stores like Target and Walmart, and Microsoft bundled it with big games like Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Unity. That helped gamers choose the Xbox One over the PlayStation 4, which was $400 bundled with Bungie's sci-fi shooter Destiny or with the rereleases of Grand Theft Auto V and The Last of Us.
They claim XB1 got 53% of the Black Friday sales, compare to 31% for Sony's PS4, and leaving 16% to other consoles.
As shown in the picture above from InfoScout, the poor Nintendo Wii U come in losing Fourth place below Microsoft's older Xbox 360.
ModRobert over at EurAsia is reporting that 15432 has released a nice update for the X360ACE glitch'ing chips that are very affordable let via stable, so now with this custom firmware you be able to easy RGH your Phat Xbox 360 console.
Here is the translated tutorial from HackFAQ posted by 15432 in Russian:
For about a month I have been working on the launch of the chip RGH2 x360ace. Finally, everything is ready for release!
Once decided on the length, select the time of discharge, it is easier - to sort out all 4 options.
For more info please see the original source (http://www.hackfaq.net/xbox360/x360ace/) and for the needed files, check out the news links below. -- Enjoy!
Team-Xecuter has been rocking' the Xbox scene for over a decade now, they have been a trusted brand when it comes to modding your Microsoft Xbox gaming consoles, and so has ModChipCentral they been a trusted reseller and supporter of the video gaming modding scene for just as long, and are offering up great deals for your Holiday shopping this season, along with discount codes for more deals on TX products.
Here is sample of some of latest cool TX gadgets you can order from MCC today:
Looks like Microsoft is still improving the Xbox 360 console, releasing yet another new model, and because it is new PCB layout with a smaller die chipset, it is sadly incompatible with the current RGH hacking setups, leaving those buying these new Xbox 360 consoles unable to mod them correctly.
"KonzolozZ over at team-xecuter.com has posted info about a new Xbox 360 Corona motherboard bundled as 500GB + Fifa 15 Pack which is incompatible with RGH. Various observations from the forum post: The CGPU is without IHS, and the type is: 4672991 D-A3;X888841-001. Featuring SKhynix or ST NAND Samsung K4J10324KG-HC14 NAND flash. These are the new 500 GB consoles, the MFR DATE 2014.08.14; LOT NO./DATE: 1436X. The NAND is readable and writeable, after writing ECC it gives 0010 secondary error. The post_out fix adapter doesn't fit."
But don't worry, Team-Xecuter says they will have one of these new models tomorrow, and 15432 is already looking at the new Nand dumps, so it might not be long before you be able to RGH these new boxes, all tho for sure you will need a new post_out fix adapter, and I guess this means CR4 will be delayed a bit more again by TX until these new Corona models are sorted out by everyone.
15432 (Russia) and DrShottky (Italia) have released XeLL images and XeBuild patches compatible with Winbond RAM.
|Someday I’ve promised to start working at my own Winbond solution, if TX won’t release it soon.|
I thought, if somebody can do that, I can do that, too! (Now I understand, that was slightly wrong belief)
After the first failure, I had to delay everything for a month (mountains, sea, other rest).
I’ve returned a week ago, and started research from scratch. I had only Trinity console (thanks to grifon2006!!) and lots of hardware tools (sent by mixail21).
But the most important help was from an italian colleague (DrShottky), he solved a lot of problems and suggested main ideas.
So..This project was made not only by me, we all did it!
Thank you, guys!
