    Hi, I was wondering if there was any WORKING halo 3 program similar to the halo 2 modding program DotHalo? If not, is it possible to make one (would it work). Because I am quite used to modding halo 2 through it, and would like it if halo 3 was as easy to mod. (hate sandbox program)

    even then, johnson is buggy as ****.

    Your best bet is to wait until Halo 3 modding is actually possible (ie people can actually play the maps), and then tools will come out.

    Container package builders are already possible. I know a few people who've made them. A .map resigner will also never happen, as long as RSA has no known weaknesses. The only way you'll be able to play maps on a retail xbox is with an xbox exploit that bypasses XeX checks.


    It's more like never.

    It's actually possible right now. Recent progress has been made in getting past the hypervisor which allows unsigned code to be run. However, this requires downgrading your kernal to an exploitable version using a timing attack, running the King Kong exploit, setting up the new hypervisor, then acquiring a modified Halo 3 XEX which removes the map checks. Difficult right now, but not impossible.

    No, not owned. You'd need to have an xbox with a 1888 basekernel, and they haven't been released since around mid 2006. If you had a working box from then, you'd have to buy infectus to downgrade to 1888. Then You'd have to upgrade to 4532 to run the kk exploit, and then finally use this new info, which as of right now has only been used to change the LED's to orange, to load a modified XeX.

    The chance of you having the xbox requirements and the skill to do this close to the chance of you getting a dev-kit.

    Plus, a custom kernel was already made, just never released. If this new development in the hypervisor exploit ever came to anything, what makes you think that it would be released?

    Like I said, it's more or less impossible.

    MxRider, if you're talking about something different from the xboxhacker topic, then let me know.

    This has gone totally off topic, the question has been answered. Could an admin close this?
