Hacking the Xbox – epub version

After finishing Cory Doctorow’s Little Brother, I was going through the “suggested reading” section at the back of the book. A title called “Hacking the Xbox – An introduction to reverse engineering” caught my eye, and I decided to see if there was an ebook available. Sure enough, the book had been released by the author, Andrew “bunnie” Huang, and the publisher, No Starch Press, for free as a pdf file.

Unfortunately, my Kobo doesn’t render the pdf all that well. To rectify the situation, I tried to convert the pdf to epub using Calibre. Something did come through the conversion, but nothing readable.

Since I really did want to read the book, I proceeded to manually edit the file to fix the formatting problems of the automatically generated version. After a couple of days of work, here are the results. Enjoy:


The manual editing process has most likely introduced typos and other errors in the epub-version. If you find one, please leave a comment.


  1. Thanks a bunch! I also just read Little Brother so I wanted to get “Hacking the xbox”.
    Happy hacking!

  2. I also finished Little Brother and was trying to find a digital version of this book. Thank you for your work.

  3. Hi,

    The link to your epub version of the book “Hacking the Xbox” is no longer working, do you still have a copy of it and do you still want to share it?
