Programmers/Developers/Hackers
Posted 10/23/11
I was originally going to ask how many members here program, develop or hack software.

But the amount of people here who program is probably so slim that I'll never talk to one.

So the real question here, how many Jailbroken/Softmodded/Hardmodded devices do you own?

A lot of people use software of R4i cards for DS/3DS and jailbreak their iDevices.

How many "pwned"(Geohotz term) devices do you own? I think they're really cool and one of the main things that inspired me to become a programmer.

You'd be a liar to say you never used emulators, repositories and such for your PC or other device, I mean, who doesn't install custom roms on their Android?(Except me, I'm an iOS guy).

I'm currently trying to crack the Xbox 360 for a Jailbreak(Not Mod), using a custom firmware, but modifiying one of the updates, when you insert a USB stick into the 360, it boots its front USB ports and drive first, it'll read an "update" uf a stick with an "update" is in the 360.

I'm trying to partially reverse engineer an update, so you plug it into the 360, it reads it as an update, but it installs custom firmware(Dashboard) over the old one, adding a Cydia like repository....

How many devices have you modded or installed custom firmware or jailbroken?

I- I don't even know how to answer this question because I don't even know the devices I use. Sorry.

Well do you use emulators and the sort? Have you ever modified something?

Have you ever jailbroken an iDevice? Installed custom firmware on Android?

Ever modified a Wii, 360 or Jailbroken a PS3?

Have I ever modified something? PS3, I guess.

What is Jailbroken anyway?

Whenever you jailbreak a PS3(Or any device for that matter), You get rid of Sony's really gay restrictions like no repos or running backups off the Harddrive or USB.

You take off the security so you can make your own applications or run programmers application that Sony wouldn't allow like custom icons, all kinds of tweaks to the OS and installing applications made by programmers who aren't Sony.

Oh, I see. Thank you for telling me.

Well, since I didn't know what that was, I guess it's only obvious that I have never done that before. Heh, interesting, indeed.

I've done my share of scripting (PHP, Perl, VBScript) and more hard-core coding (Java, C++, C). I haven't written full applications in the more base languages, but I've done a lot of modification for purpose and even bugfixing. One of my more interesting excursions was changing a few quirks in a driver for NTP (a time-setting tool) to work better with the Trimble GPS being used as the time source.

I'm also working to become a fully-privileged packager for the Mageia Linux distribution. That doesn't take too much in the way of programming skills, however.

Most of my time, I'm building code for websites, usually in PHP.

I have at least three. My old HTC Dream (T-Mobile G1) has Cyanogenmod on it. Likewise for my Samsung Vibrant (The T-Mobile version of the Galaxy S series). My Wii has some cIOS installed so I don't have to flip discs when I'm playing and to speed up load time. You'd be surprised how slow DDR can be when reading from the disc.

I remember Nesticle on DOS. That was fun and gory at the same time. Still have my original NES, but it's packed up right now in the original box. I just don't have room to keep it out.

i not lying when i say i don't, my brother does but i am morally against such things.
the only current gen systems i have are a psp and wii both clean and unmodified, nor do i use emulators of any kind... if you're going to ask me why then the answer would be "because i don't think we should do it"

i don't even understand how people figure out how to do half of these things in the first place.

I don't own any modded electronics. Largely on part I don't know anyone with the capacity to do that. And due to me not being that savvy with electronics I wouldn't trust myself to do the modding.

I once disabled the governor on a golf cart, does that count?

Joking aside. I have been pleased with how scripts have gotten ever more concise and less redundant. I recall programming in DOS. That took forever; hours going back and checking every line to figure out where something wasn't working right, test, rinse, repeat. Now, things seem like coding shorthand, by comparison.

I have no idea about any of this apart from the jail breaking. Did it for my PS3, and modded the shit out of a wii (which is completely different, because even a young child could do that).

I'm a programmer by trade, specialising in graphics and tools for artists. I have an R4 card, but I still buy software for my DS. My 360 and PS3 are clean, but given my job I get tax back on video games anyway.

To an extent that none of my game systems aren't modded by now (I've even built a cable to use a USB drive to mod the original HUEG xbox), and I'm guessing you're JTAGing your xbox? Also, I can flash a good chunk of phones to different firmwares, mostly SE and Nokias, and the occasional Motorola.
