has the XBOX 360 self-destruct integrated circuit?



Rumors and more rumors about the IBM eFuse circuits in the XBOX 360 CPU… Funny if it’s true and I can think of funny things to do with the CPU when modding is detected… B-)



(IBM)


“Some may say that I should strap on my tin foil hat, but in fact VID data is stored in the eFuses, it may be possible to shut power off to the CPU permanently or increase the core supply to the point of self-destruct.

Remember that VID “111111” or “111110” (VID order 4,3,2,1,0,5) indicated “NO CPU” therefore no supply power to the core.

This is just one possible scenario and may give new meaning to “FRAG your opponent”.
