    Took about 6 months, which was the same amount of time for the original Xbox. It was quick due to the amount of security though.

    the original xbox was actually cracked about three weeks after it came out, but it was kept quiet for six months. the guy who did it was scared of the microsoft litigation machine coming down on him

    Exactly what happened with the 360. The Specialist (who I know from XboxHacker), didn't release it because of the same reason. It was technically hacked and cracked a few months ago.

    from what people are saying

    this will be overwritten or reflashed with the ms update, and possibly block future hacks of flashing the firmware.

    i wouldnt waste my time with this.

    This is very likely to happen. Even the people that disconnect themselves from Live to try and keep the hack will only get reflashed once they play newer games that have the BIOS updates and other executables. There's really no way around it, unfortunately.
