Hackers! Join us now and free the… Hardware? Notes from a presentation by Bunnie on Hardware Hacking at this so-called Emerging Tech conference, which seems to be where all the cool kids are this week.
During the presentation he scooped up the contents of a Gamecube’s ROM as it booted up and showed it to the crowd. Bunnie originally became famous by circumventing Microsoft’s double-super-secret encryption and layers of decoy code (really!) to find, dump, and post the Flash ROM of the Xbox. Within 12 hours Microsoft was on the phone, and they weren’t exactly congratulating him. He took down the ROM, but left up all the information about how he got it.
