So , I own a 360 and play it a lot but I've started to wonder how it works. I know the basics about the CPU etc. I guess I want to know about the software side and kernel and RSA encryption and how it all works and what it all is. Anyone have a link or is just willing to explain to me?

Thanks in advance!

Yeah, I read that but it didn't really tell you the technical side of it just the principles of the CPU. Thanks anyway.

I'd like to know what the kernel is and what it does in the 360. Also what else it needs to operate. Software wise I'd just like to know how it's coded and what in etc. And what is affected by software as opposed to hardware.

The Kernel is a 16 year old hot girl....

Protected by the security system, aka the dad with a shotgun, known as the Hypervisor :smile:

ummm... Kernel is the juicy goodness.... you dont NEED to know it in technical terms.... the Hypervisor protects the kernel from most attacks, there was an exploit in it that could be used on unupdated consoles, but after certain kernel numbers that spot is no longer vulnerable

See, the dad caught one kid sneaking into the house, so he put up an alarm system :frown:
