Linux Mint 16 and the Xbox 360?

Postby Jessey Lawson on Sat Aug 31, 2013 7:34 pm

Ok I was thinking about buying an 360 in december after Linux Mint 16 comes out. Now I have no idea what ter to get or if Mint would even run on the thing. I know many people like to point to http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=595902, but this includes soft moding it and hacking a game. Is it possible just to wipe the 360's hard drive and then just put in Mints DVD and install it. I know that the 360's hard drive is on top so is it realy hard to do that or do they not do this becuase they still want to play their 360's games. I have no idea if this is like Windows NTFS partions issue or not?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

2. Mint won't run on the 360.

1. The link does work, so it must just be you.
