SID5 Pimped is back with a vengeance - SID5 PimpedV5: CD Edition

Well guys after a long dry spell SID5 Pimped is back with a vengeance. While it may still look somewhat the same I have gutted the program to make it faster, smoother and more user friendly. Boot times have been dropped to almost instantaneous (hot swappers be sure to edit the time out value or you'll be hitting that HDD with a hammer). Also through higher level compression and support for zipped files over 1.4GB of info will now fit on a 700MB CD.

UnleashXv0.40 has now been added as the official default dash of Pimped and the newest stable T3CH XBMC has been added. Knoppix Failsafe coding has been included for problem PCs and the need for a boot disc has been removed.

Manual detection override has also been added for the real problem BIOS. If you get the message no HDD found just boot the BIOS and turn off IDE Master Channel 1, (thats right shut er right down) and Pimped will take control of that channel so that the PC BIOS cant lay claim and freeze the security on the HDD. The UnleashX version will be released first but will be followed shortly by the XBMC(as dash) edition. Enjoy Hq-ers.

Judge Bars Fair Use In Mod Trial

Xbox Hacking
A Judge has Barred the ‘Fair Use’ Defense in a new Xbox Modding Trial which is set to start next week.

A California man charged with violating the DMCA by modifying Xbox 360 consoles won’t be allowed to claim “fair use” at his scheduled jury trial next week, a federal judge ruled Tuesday — a decision potentially devastating to the defense, and not particularly favorable to anyone who thinks they have the right to tinker with hardware that they’ve bought and paid for.

Matthew Crippen, 28, faces three years in prison on two allegations of violating the anti-circumvention provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act for financial gain. Crippen, who’s from Anaheim, allegedly had a business modding Xbox 360s for between $60 and $80 a pop, allowing the consoles to run pirated games or unapproved homebrew software. He was indicted after allegedly performing the service for an undercover corporate security investigator with the Entertainment Software Association, then again for an undercover federal agent.

His trial is set to begin on November 30 in Los Angeles, and would be the first federal criminal prosecution for console-modding to reach a jury.

Crippen’s lawyer hoped to convince that jury that Crippen’s alleged modifications weren’t intended to enable piracy, but to allow Xbox owners to make lawful “fair use” of copyrighted material, or for other non-infringing purposes. The lawyer compared modding the console to jail breaking an iPhone, an activity explicitly permitted under a recent DMCA exception approved by the U.S. Copyright Office."

Xbox modding may be Fair Use, rules judge

Xbox Hacking
Great news for anyone who likes tampering with their game consoles came out of a federal court today. The judge in a high-profile Xbox modding case has allowed use of the argument that altering the device in your own home fits into the long-defined Fair Use legal doctrine.

28-year-old Anaheim, California resident Matthew Crippen found himself in hot water when prosecutors brought charges against him for charging to mod Xbox 360s. They said that by violating the official software put in place on the system, Crippen could be charged with copyright infringement violations.

However, the judge overhearing the case has said he will accept a defense of "Fair Use" in the case. It's the same defense that eventually led to the ruling that iPhone jailbreaking isn't illegal. Following that legal precedent to the letter may allow Crippen to get off scot-free.

Lead prosecutor Allen Chiu argued that any sort of evidence or arguments citing Fair Use are t irrelevant to the case, will be used to wrongly achieve a "not guilty" sentence from the jury despite the evidence, and should not be admitted. The judge didn't agree, saying, "Because fair use is a mixed question of law and fact, it is a permissible question for the jury."

Of course, modding your Xbox 360 voids its warranty and could render it inoperable or unable to play future games. Sony has taken the proactive measure of continuously updating its firmware to brick PS3s that are modded without authorization. Microsoft hasn't been quite so strict with its console.

The decision today is merely a small victory for Crippen, who still needs to undergo an entire trial before his fate is decided. If convicted of violating the Digital Millenium Copyright Act, as prosecutors allege, he could face up to three years in prison. But if the Fair Use defense holds, it may set a new precedent.
