    I wonder if this will be able to be used, so that anyone on an updated dash can then run some equivalent to jtag or rgh to do cool stuff with their console?

    JTAG/RGH is both hardware.
    With RGH being the most recent.

    I doubt it.
    If you've read it closely, the flaw was already discovered and has been known about for a long time.
    Plenty of time for MS to patch it.

    Besides, you first need to gain access to the CPU with the machine.

    Nope.
    Just some detailing about a CPU bug similar to Spectre and Meltdown in the 360.

    so while the author is not sure there may have been a game that shipped with the bug? does that mean that there may be a mechassault style exploit for the 360 that nobody ever uncovered? that be cool.

    I doubt it.
    Not to mention that you'd need R/W access as well.

    Its not likely that an entirely soft-mod solution could be implemented using this, however it might be possible to combine this with some sort of hardware exploit (for writing to NAND) as another more stable option for troublesome boards that don't play nice with RGH (Xenon's, Zephyr's aka firestarters/space heaters lol). As much as I'd love to see another King Kong-esque hack for unsigned code on the 360, I'm not holding my breathe. You'd be more likely to win the lottery twice in a row lol. If something does come out of this (even if it requires hardware, which it likely will) that would be amazing either way <3
