Hackers have discovered a way to enable the Xbox One jailbreak and if their claims are to be believed, users will be able to run homebrew apps and pirated games on their Xbox One.
According to the reports of Cyberland, Hackers are claming that they’ve found an exploit on the Xbox One that will allow homebrew on the console. A chat log that comes from the EFnet lobby #xbonehack has hackers claiming victory in their quest to jailbreak the Xbox One.
“Let’s just say it’s already done,” according to one poster in the chatroom. Claiming that he’s got “great news for Xbox One hacking.”
“We will see examples within the following months… right now is the discovery phase, development must be done,” reads the log which can be found on Paste Bin. “Think of the most radical situation that could have possibly happened. The thing that would most hurt the security. That’s what happened.”
The post of the hackers hint that the keys needed to sign files for the Xbox One have been discovered, and that to stop the exploit, Microsoft would need to roll out new hardware to stop it.
“Xbox One full homebrew will likely be a reality in a short time,” the conversation concludes.
While the post offered very little proof when it comes to the claims that were made, there’s no doubt a large community of modders and hackers that are looking for a homebrew solution on the Xbox One.The ability to run unsigned code on the console would likely lead to piracy on the Xbox One.
