Hacking the Xbox is a hands-on guide to the mysterious inner workings of the popular Xbox game console. Xbox hacker "Bunnie" skillfully guides readers through taking the Xbox apart, basic circuit board "reading, " and reverse engineering. Readers learn to add hardware to their console, understand Xbox security, and even how to sneak into secret backdoors within the Xbox's firmware. Sprinkled amongst the book's technical material, readers enjoy antidotes and sidebars on the colorful Xbox hacker underground, and appendices on essential Xbox hacking skills such as soldering and circuit board layout, as well as Xbox hardware references and debugging. Hacking the Xbox even covers the legal issues surrounding modifying and tinkering with the console, how the DMCA does (or does not) apply to Xbox hacking, and an introduction to the legal issues from the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF.)
