This hands-on guide to hacking was canceled by the original publisher out of fear of DMCA-related lawsuits. Following the author's self-publication of the book (during which time he sold thousands directly), Hacking the Xbox is now brought to you by No Starch Press.

Hacking the Xbox begins with a few step-by-step tutorials on hardware modifications that teach basic hacking techniques as well as essential reverse-engineering skills. It progresses into a discussion of the Xbox security mechanisms and other advanced hacking topics, emphasizing the important subjects of computer security and reverse engineering. The book includes numerous practical guides, such as where to get hacking gear, soldering techniques, debugging tips, and an Xbox hardware reference guide.

Hacking the Xbox confronts the social and political issues facing today's hacker, and introduces readers to the humans behind the hacks through several interviews with master hackers. It looks at the potential impact of today's legal challenges to legitimate reverse-engineering activites, which are further examined in a chapter contributed by Lee Tien of the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) about the rights and responsibilities of hackers. The book concludes with a discussion of the latest trends and vulnerabilities in secure PC platforms.
