    Just three days after releasing it to approximately 15,00 beta testers, Microsoft has made the Vista SP1 RC Refresh publicly available. It can be downloaded here, but any previous versions of the service pack must be removed before installing this one. For details of the changes included with Vista SP1, visit this site.

    That's the only one M$ has, so I'm assuming it works for all versions, not just X64 as the system requirements might suggest.

    This is M$ though, so it could just be scaremongering. TBH, I think it will probably end up that on new installs with SP1 integrated it won't work, but those hacks might continue to work on systems which update to SP1 - otherwise why wouldn't M$ already have patched it?
