    Hello,

    As you know people are placing KV Stealers into JTAG/RGH Tools. And many people start complaining, All tools here on XPG are Safe, all tools that look suspicious will be tested for any KV stealer so don't be scared to download a tool here they are gone. So lets get back on topic...

    To protect your self from a KV Stealer you can Flash your KV to your Xbox instead of your HDD.

    Why?

    KV Stealers are programmed to take, delete and UpLoad your KV to their FTP/Email

    Deep breef from Coder123:

    To make it as simple as possible:
    KV Stealers check the root of Hdd for a file called KV.bin (or KV_dec.bin) and they upload that file to the developers server and sometimes delete the original file from the Hdd to disable from the user from using nor banning it

    btw, some of them also check for CPUKey.bin too atleast people who have brain would.... xD

    Tutorial(Think the vid is right, not sure as I don't own a JTAG nor RGH I just know you need to flash your KV to prevent it being stole:

    So yea manually flashing the KV will disable these idiots from stealing it ;) nice topic!
