First public rebooter
Allows 849x on jtag boxes with no efuses blown

Taken from 'the scene

freeBOOT v0.01 - Xbox 360 8498 Rebooter for JTAG Hack
>> Ikari released the first version of 'freeBOOT' for xenon (v1) and falcon (v3) consoles with JTAG/SMC-Hack. This hasn't been tested yet, so try/use at own risk for now.

A 'rebooter', allows to 'reboot' the 360 into an MS kernel after starting it with the JTAG Hack ... in this case (freeBOOT v0.01) it should reboot the console into MS kernel 8498 (but I assume 8507 will be possible too, and it's probably also the first step into rebooting into patched/modified MS kernels).
The readme says it requires the Cygnos360 v2 chip atm, I'm assuming they need it to automatically reset the SMC back to original.

Booting your 360 into 849x+ and keeping the JTAG Hack working was impossible until now, because updating to 849x+ via the MS update procedures burned a CB-fuse which made it impossible to still perform the JTAG Hack. If you already updated your console to 849x+ via normal update methods there is still no solution for you, but if you have a JTAG 'hackable' console (kernel 7371 or lower on NAND) freeBOOT should allow you to 're boot' it into 8498 via the JTAG Hack.

From readme/nfo:
* Introduction
Finally, here it is - freeBOOT, a rebooter for the Microsoft Xbox 360. This version of freeBOOT allows you to reboot into kernel 2.0.8498 on a Xenon or Falcon console, which can be exploited by the JTAG hack. Support for Zephyr, Opus, and Jasper consoles will follow shortly.
As freeBOOT needs a second flash memory to store kernel 2.0.8498 and associated data, a Cygnos360 is required at the moment.
Read through the following instructions carefully. Building your own images is yet a complicated task involving many steps. Future versions of freeBOOT will be easier to build.

Power on your Xbox 360. If everything went correctly, you should see the blue LED light up a few seconds later, followed by the usual boot animation. If you power on your Xbox 360 with the DVD tray eject button, XeLL will be loaded instead.

* Credits
Writing freeBOOT would not have been possible without the great work done by many hackers. Kudoz to arnezami, Redline99, Robinsod, SeventhSon, Tiros, tmbinc, xorloser, and anyone else I may have missed.

* What's next
Features planned for the next release(s):
-support for all consoles
-update to the latest kernel
download: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=23DU4NP0
needs a dual nand setup

UPDATE 1: it would appear that this has been confirmed and that xbins has an 849x dump already

Damn, I'm really out of the loop. What happened to the good old days when you could just solder a mod chip in and start FTPing?

If you need someone to test the build, ask Jester I'm sure he might like to try.

He's been getting pissed, I've heard from some other people about the drama that is still around from when the original JTAG **** wasn't supposed to be released. This final release gives him an excuse to just leave it all imo

how long do you bet it takes for a custom kernel to get leaked and all of m$ security to go to hell
its going to suck if the 5 year olds start real modding(online)

Connecting to xbox live with a modified/no hypervisor is already quite the task. They can detect it extremely easily, and changing around your KV isn't as easy as it used to be to get unbanned. There are additional undocumented checks that occur when you try to even change the region. However, we may see real time editors and modified xexs to allow some fun single player modding.

That's what im looking forward too, and xbmc for 360 would be sick.
