from xbox linux faq.

To run unsiged code on the Xbox, wouldn't it be enough to write a boot
loader, make someone with the SDK sign it and spread it on the internet?

No. The SDK signs with a different key, only accepted by developer
Xboxes, not by retail systems. As a side effect, this file would be
illegal, and so would be using it within the project.

It would be a really good idea though.
