    How to Get Xbox One Games for Cheap 

    Xbox One games are priced too high in India – it’s something even Microsoft agrees with, but for early adopters, digital deals took away the sting of the pricing of physical games. For the first year of the Xbox One’s life in India, we were treated to a number of digital deals that made the high cost of Internet well worth the price of admission. Now though, pricing of digital games is a lot higher than before, and in a lot of cases, almost double of what they were a year ago. And there’s the fact that other regions like Canada and Hong Kong tend to have a better price point for most games, while the United States has certain games that may not make it here – all this makes buying games in India starts to look downright depressing.

    For example: Elite: Dangerous was only available in India only after it was out of Microsoft’s Early Access program. You can get around these problems by buying your games from other regions, and you might get good deals along the way too. This guide tells you how to get your digital games for cheap, and it might come in handy considering there’s another end of year sale on the Xbox One that will take place in less than a week.

    There are two parts to this. First, you have to change the location of your Xbox One, and then you can buy download codes from the correct places.

    Change the location of your Xbox One

    Before changing your location, you need to know where the best deals are. You can track game prices before switching regions.

    Fire up the Settings app, choose System and select Language & Location.

    Select the location of your choice. Regions like Canada, Hong Kong, and Singapore have a surprisingly good pricing advantage over India, thanks to the worsening Rupee-Dollar relationship.

    After selecting your location you’ll be prompted to reboot your Xbox One. Now the store will show prices in the currency of the region you’ve chosen.

    Jailbreak firmware turns cheap digital walkie-talkie into DMR scanning receiver 

    ? LiveJournal

    In the last years, DMR and MOTOTRBO (a.k.a. TRBO a Motorola Solutions branded DMR Radios ) has become a very popular digital voice mode on the UHF and VHF bands and the MD380 radio is the latest cheap DMR walkie-talkie to come out of China.The question is, is it any good? The longer answer is slightly more complicated, and involves discussing the difference in price between this radio and other more expensive, but higher quality, radios. But i can tell you that a group of hams here recently purchased the Beihaidao DMR radio (also sold under brands like Tytera, KERUIER or Retevis) and have been having excellent results with them.

    Every once in a great while, a piece of radio gear catches the attention of a prolific hardware guru and is reverse engineered. A few years ago, it was the RTL-SDR, and since then, software defined radios became the next big thing. Last Shmoocon, Travis Goodspeed presented his reverse engineering of the MD380 digital handheld radio.

    The hack has since been published in PoC||GTFO 0x10 (donwload site) with all the gory details that turn a radio under $200 into the first hardware scanner for digital mobile radio. For comparison, the cost of a Motorola MotoTRBO UHF XPR 7550 DMR radio can reach $800.
    The MD380 is a fairly basic radio with two main chips: an STM32F405 with a megabyte of Flash and 192k of RAM, and an HR C5000 baseband. The STM32 has both JTAG and a ROM bootloader, but both of these are protected by the Readout Device Protection (RDP). Getting around the RDP is the very definition of a jailbreak.

    In Digital Mobile Radio, audio is sent through either a public talk group or a private contact. The radio is usually set to only one talk group, and so it’s not really possible to listen in on other talk groups without changing settings. A patch for promiscuous mode – a mode that puts all talk groups through the speaker – is now out.

    Here in the US Project 25 (P25 or APCO-25) is a suite of standards for digital radio communications for federal users,  but for state/county and local public safety organizations including police dispatch channels are using Mototrbo DMR digital standard.

    How to install the Hacked Firmware for the MD380. ( Here is a YouTube Video on the Update Process to the Jailbreak of the Beihaidao Radio)

    You need source code from https://github.com/travisgoodspeed/md380tools this download  does not ship with firmware to avoid legal trouble. Instead it grabs firmware from the Internet, decrypts it, and applies patches to that revision.

    The output files have a .img extension when unencrypted, and a .bin extension when packaged for the official firmware updater.
    If you use the Tytera Updater you need .binHere is a description of the files and procedure.* prom-public.img and prom-public.bin: patched to monitor all talk groups.* prom-private.img and prom-private.bin: patched to monitor all talk groups, private calls.* experiment.img and experiment.bin: patched to monitor all talk groups, private calls, and sideload alternate firmware.You can install any of these patched firmware files into your MD380 by using the respective .bin file with the Ty$* Turn off your MD380 using the volume knob.* Attach the Tytera USB cable to the SP and MIC ports of your MD380.* Attach the Tytera USB cable to your host computer.* Hold down the PTT and the button above the PTT button (*not* the button with the “M” on it).* Turn on your MD380 using the volume knob.* Release the buttons on the radio.* The status LED should be on and alternating between red and green, indicating you’re in flash upgrade mode.* Start the Tytera “Upgrade.exe” program.* Click “Open Update File” and choose one of the .bin files produced from the process above.* Click “Download Update File” and wait for the flash update process to finish. It takes less than a minute.* Turn off your MD380 using the volume knob.* Disconnect the USB cable from your MD380 and host computer.* Turn the MD380 back on, and you should see the “PoC||GTFO” welcome screen.

    You’re running patched firmware!

    var _top100q = _top100q || []; _top100q.push([‘setAccount’, ‘1111412’]); _top100q.push([‘trackPageview’]); ;(function () { LJ.injectScript(‘//ad.rambler.ru/static/green2.min.js’) .done(function () { _green.defineSlot(‘8990’, [1, 1], ‘rambler_ad_counter_145411388258’); _green.display(‘rambler_ad_counter_145411388258’); }); }());
