No, car service manuals and the XBox guide are exactly the same thing.

Those car service manuals tell you how to disassemble your car piece by piece and see exactly how it works. The XBox guide does exactly the same thing. What you choose to do with it is your business.

Will this guide help people get more utility out of their XBox (including, but not limited to Linux)? Yes. Will it help them to play pirated games? Unfortunately, yes.

Chemistry books describe violent reactions among chemicals. Could this information be used for scientific research? Yes. Could it be used to build a bomb? Unfortunately, yes. Should chemistry books be banned? Answer that question and you've answered the XBox guide question.

Reverse-engineering is what brought you the IBM PC-compatible that you probably typed your post on. It'll be a sad day when people like you cause innovation like that to be illegal.
