Team-Xecuter coming to your Nintendo Switch console!

In the light of a recent presentation at the Chaos Communication Congress in Germany we've decided to come out of the woodwork and tease you all a bit with our latest upcoming product.

TX On Switch

This solution will work on ANY Nintendo Switch console regardless of the currently installed firmware, and will be completely future proof. This is *the* solution for opening up CFW (Custom FirmWare) on the Nintendo Switch. We want to move the community forward and provide a persistent, stable and fast method of running your own code and custom firmware patches on Nintendo's latest flagship product. And we think we've succeeded! 🙂

Below you can find a quick video showcasing a Nintendo Switch booting up, but there s something funny going on, can you spot it?

For all the non-believers and technically capable people! Try the following key to decrypt STAGE2 of the bootloader (1.0.0 up till 2.3.0):


Keep an eye on this space, more news and updates are coming! 🙂


Kodi media player arrives on the Xbox One

Welcome back XBMP

We all here at MaxConsole, remember the glory days of original Xbox console modding, the main thing to install after you got it flashed or modded was a new dashboard like EvoX or AvaLaunch, and then of course right away installing XBMP with all its plugins, and now the joy of those days can be re-lived on the Xbox One console, as Microsoft surprising enough has helped the Kodi Team to port it over to UWP format and its now rolling out across the world on the Xbox One Store, with Europeans getting the first dibs! 🙂

Kodi is a very capable player that’s highly expandable thanks to third-party add-ons like live TV and DVR services — something Microsoft isn’t going to provide. But Kodi is perhaps best known as the go to app for piracy due to a wide variety of plugins that let you illegally stream television shows, professional sports, and films from the comfort of your living room. This has led to a cottage industry of so-called "Kodi boxes," often built around cheap HDMI dongles like Amazon's Fire TV sticks. While the XBMC Foundation has attempted to distance itself from the illegal third-party plugins, it's also benefited from the exposure.

In a blog post, Kodi warns that the Xbox One download isn’t finished and may contain missing features and bugs. Here are a few known limitations as of today:

  • There’s limited access to only part of your Video and Music folders.
  • Network support is limited to NFS:// shares.
  • There’s no access to attached storage or to the Blu-ray drive.
  • There might be problems with some add-ons.

Kodi began life as XBMC (Xbox Media Center), or XBMP (Xbox Media Player) if you want to track back to the original incarnation that ran on hacked first-generation Xbox consoles — a capable PC with high-end graphics that Microsoft sold at a loss in order to gain an industry foothold back in the early noughts. So really, it's only fitting that Kodi should return to the roost.

Surprising enough Microsoft rolled out a new Dash for their old aging Xbox 360 consoles, but it didn't take long for Swizzy and his team (deep3r, cOz, ikari) to roll out a new set of xeBuild and DashLaunch to get everyone up to speed on using RGH on the latest Xbox 360 dashboard.

As of posting this Swizzy is still working on xeBuild GUI, but it will show up after release. Could this be the last kernel update for Xbox 360?

DosBox running on Xbox One

Sources to be published in the coming days by the author!

    A Video on youtube is showing DosBox running on the XBox One. This is impressive and is not runnning on a hack.

Recently, the Xbox One was updated with a feature that allows anyone to 'Develop' apps/games for it, using the UWP interface, and even tho its very limited in the sandbox, someone been able to figure out a way to get 'DosBox' running on it, allowing them to get their Xbox One to boot-up Windows '95 and play the first version of Duke Nuk'em the video game, all tho the framerate a bit slow for now!

Developer vcfan has not released any binary at this point. Nevertheless, this looks pretty cool, despite the awful framerate. The Author says this can be improved though. Vcfan says: "Its slow for now because it's only using the cpu interpreter. The dynarec still needs work since it produces crashes on 64bit, but it flies with it."

In the video, we can see the developer running Windows 95, Duke Nukem 3D, and a tiny bit of an SNES emulator (but no SNES games).

That's pretty cool, and it would be interesting to see where this goes. This could quickly make the Xbox One a more interesting platform for enthusiast devs than the PS4.

In some of the youtube comments, vcfan has promised he will publish the sources in the days to come, so stay tuned.

So this is one story we going to follow for sure, as it seems the UWP mode on the Xbox One, might just open up some neat doors!
