Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Cromwell is a replacement firmware for the Microsoft Xbox gaming console that has been developed by the Xbox Linux Project. If programmed onto the onboard flash chip of the Xbox or a modchip, it can boot the Linux operating system and practically convert the Xbox into a full PC. It is unusual in that it is a legal firmware and was developed primarily through reverse-engineering of the original MS bios and its boot process. In light of this, many Xbox modchip manufacturers ship this firmware with their chips to avoid litigation and copyright infringement claims.
