Free60 Gentoo LiveCD Xenon is a liveCD for Linux on the Xbox 360.
Free60 Gentoo LiveCD Xenon is a liveCD for Linux on the Xbox 360. It is based on the experimental gentoo liveCD that can be found here:

http://gentoo.mirrors.pair.com/experimental/ppc64/livecd/

It has a few changes to boot on the Xbox 360 (codename xenon).

How does it work ?

Burn gentoo-livecd-xenon-beta-v2.iso. Upload the cdreader binary via serial, or use the new king kong patcher with built-in readcd code, this will open the dvd tray. Put the gentoo-livecd-xenon-beta CD in the drive. cdreader will automatically start the xell bootloader located at lba 0x20 on this cd and boot the Linux Kernel.

Thanks to stonersmurf for the compilation of the liveCD.
