Xbox 1 completely hacked

No more modding and switch flipping.

The Xbox hacking community claims that using specialized firmware mods, the purchase and installation of mod-chips is now no longer necessary. However, details about compatibility with Xbox Live have not yet been published.

Mod chips eventually could be detected by upgrades done through Xbox Live and those modded machines would be banned for life by Live. An improvement in modding came with the next generation of mods where a switch would allow changing between modded and original status.

Modding means to modify the console in a way that it would do things otherwise impossible (say "not permitted"). A modded Xbox could read copied discs from all zones, install Linux on the disc and more.
