Getting In Through 360’s Backdoor?

A hacker who goes by the name of TheSpecialist claims to have found a backdoor into the Xbox 360. TheSpecialist says he figured out a way to use the DVD firmware to allow him to gain full control of the DVD and get it to accept backups of original game DVDs.

He hasn’t yet done the deed, but TheSpecialist claims to be close to getting the Xbox 360 to boot up with a backup. If this is true, that means a mod-free hack for at least a short while until MS release another mandatory update for their console.
