How can I help? I'm willing to learn and this thread has me very interested, Just not sure what to do I guess.

Edit: After actually reading the all the posts on this thread and not skimming it I realize how difficult this could be to explain and no one wants to do this as it would take a while, so I'm just gonna takes ballin amount of notes from the thread and work backwards. However if anyone is interested in helping me learn please PM me

I hinting Moddable Xbox one's
I just bought the UWP devkit, going to see if anything can be done about getting linux to run on it.

I think Team Xecuter have found something tbh as they're being too quiet, maybe firmware mods.

I think they've found something too, although I'd be very surprised if it's a firmware exploit

Hello, I have discovered how to view the xbox one system files. I have not figured out how to edit any of the files because I am not a coder. Hopefully, someone will figure out how to do this. This is how to access the xbox one files. First, you need to download the xbox one app on your pc. Next, follow this tutorial to gain admin access to the xbox one files. youtube /watch?v=EMOvnNpWeGs. After you have completed this, do this:
1. Windows search: This PC
2. OS (C:smile:
3. Click "View" at the top bar and make sure you check hidden items
4. Program files
5. Windows apps
6. Xbox one files will be at the bottom
7. Click the designated folders and that is as far as I got to accessing the system files.

There are forensics tools that allow this that have been available for a long time. They're also free.


I am pretty sure that the games are ran in virtual machines, like what Android programs do with Dalvik, but instead with Microsofts version of performing this. The SDK may just be to develop for their virtual machine environment that I am pretty sure they are using. If this is the case, the SDK will probably not give any secrets away. The hardrive might. You can also convert a code on the hard disk so that you can have it plugged into your pc. It's formatted as NTFS, it just has a code that causes other computers not to recognize the file system.

So it turns out that you do not need to use forensics tools. I don't know what people can see in Windows when the Xbox one HDD is plugged in, but I can see five partitions. I can see all of the stuff in the partitions too. A lot of the file extensions are ".xvd"; which are the same label of extension that xen hypervisor uses for virtual disks. I do not know how to use xen hypervisor, and I don't know that this extension is a virtual disk. But, considering that I do not see a single name of a game that is on here, I think that the xbox one might be using virtual machines even more than I thought before seeing these.

Anyone know how to use Xen Hypervisor? If so, you may want to check these out. I understand that these may not do anything in that. But I am pretty sure that games are stored in these things.

I took my hard drive out to copy onto a Samsung V-NAND SSD 850 EVO. I used a pipe saw to separate the SATA 2 connector from the connection that the Xbox one came with, and am now using a SATA 3 in its place. I have NO IDEA if that wire made an improvement. So now I'm about to compare the Fallout 4 load times from an external SanDisk Extreme 500. But, I was hoping to see game folders and such to try to add Fallout mods from the internet that are not accessible from the Xbox One.

XVD's are Xbox Virtual Drives or mainly referred to Xbox Virtual Disks by the community.
They are a heavily customised version of "VHD" that are encrypted, etc.
You cannot access any encrypted package that is stored on the HDD as a typical file.

The Xbox One has 3 "Virtual Machines" running (someone might wanna correct me on that but I am assuming Host is now considered a VM due to recent findings?) which are as follows:
- HostOS
- SystemOS (SRA)
- GameOS (ERA)

GameOS is only started when you start a game. Mainly because every game on the Xbox One contains an era.xvd inside the package. 
anyone have the sdk anymore? links are all dead pretty much
The November 2013 (or 2014) is useless. In fact, any SDK prior to 2015 is no longer of use and nobody should really being using them as a reference anymore.

If we can decrypt the era.xvd then we possiblely might be able to play Xbox One games on the PC because thats the file for the Game OS on the Xbox One.
we are no looking to be able to play xbox one games on pc we are looking to be able to mod xbox one
