    ~~~~HDD Games Info~~~~
    Basically, we know how to fix the security on HDD installed or downloaded games, the problem is, if downloaded (like Xbox originals), it is a LIVE file which only Microsoft has the private key for resigning LIVE files. But if it is a HDD installed game, it seems that the game can only work if the KV is the one of your Xbox's, which means we cannot resign them, thus, no game modification.

    Well besides completely ignoring DJ's post, you can't right now.

    That should be simple enough.

    That doesn't make sense. Use proper grammar so we can understand it.

    I'm sure everybody has their 360's KeyVault. Plus, so far its only a theory.

    So the Keyvault for the game has to match the one for your Xbox, or it does match the one for your Xbox and most people can't extract their keyvault?

    If it's the second one does that mean people with the tools and time to extract their keyvault could effectively mod any aspect of the game that is contained on the disc container (I think it's CON but I'm not sure) but not the LIVE container.

    I realize a lot of what I just said is patchy but it's hard to get the full picture of how it all works just from reading the Halo 3 modding section.

    i honestly dont know what you are asking
    the keyvault used to resign the file has to be the one xbox it was installed on
    theoretically, you could mod SOME things, but everything still applies with file security, as in RSA signatures and such, so it doesnt make a difference
    plus, if they had an exploitable xbox, i seriously doubt the NXE would be on there, thus not having the HDD game option, not only that, the potential they have with one of those xboxes so much more, that concept would be pointless

    So you could mod the game if you had the keyvault to your 360 but you can't get the keyvault if you have the NXE therefore you can't install games.

    I hope I've got this right.

    One more question, if you get you extract your keyvault on an un-updated, exploitable 360 would you be able to then update it and mod it using the keyvault you extracted before you updated it?

    of course, but then you would lose the exploit which is way more valuable than anything, plus, you still couldnt mod the game, there are RSA security checks on files and stuff

    I'm just curious what could you do with the exploit that is better than modding because from looking at superaisons recently 'released' app he only exploited it so people could mod Halo 3.

    wtf? uhm... you mean he restricted it to only resign halo files?...

    an "exploit" is a glitch in the system that allows a hole to be able to do things that were not intended, as in running Linux on the Xbox 360, that would allow you to run unsigned code, that is the exploit im talking about

    Oh right, I thought an exploitable Xbox was one which you could extract the keyvault from. My bad.

    it is, it uses the exploit to get into the system to dump everything

    I think that RSA encryptions are not on all games.
