no, if you play on live you will get raped by microsoft I'm afraid, you'll definatley be banned, and if you download a system update your console might be screwed, best avoided IMHO.

As HeartBreaker says, modded console = xbox live ban. You're missing out on the best aspect of the 360, get an unmodded one and join the fun. :thumbsup:

my m8 has a modded 360. his hasnt been banned and its been like 6 months.

As posted above M$ are clamping down on the modded 360's that are connected to live, you may not get banned straight away but you will get banned in the end if you use it on live.

If you plan to play alot of games on live it's well worth buying an unmodded console for that purpose and can always pick them up at a decent price second hand
#5
hmm best not risking it then!
how much do u think i can pickup a 2nd hand core?

My 360 is also modded (flashed) and i got over 50 games no ban over 1 year..
#7
Shouldn't this be in Misc?
#8
so what if you dont want to play live can you still play modded games?!
#9
and is that certain if u do system updates it can mess up?

Get it flashed with latest I-extreme firmware before you go online ( might prolong it). a friend of mine didn`t use his online for ages then had it flashed to the latest and he is still on after the 1st lot of ban`s, over 6 months ago.

I got banned but brought a new 360 from wool worths on Thursday with free halo 3. now i have 2 360`s and the best of both worlds.


Ps don`t forget it`s the console that gets banned not the HDD so all your game saves etc are still fine to use..

Yes i paid the price for having my other flashed but now i have an unmodded one so Microsoft still get my money in an around about way.:whistling:

I don`t condone it nor do i recommend it ! :oops:

It was my choice i got burnt.

Now my new console will stay as it is UNMODDED.

No it`s not. No one can put the finger on how the bans were implemented system update was just one of many things presumed.
#12
but eventhough u gt banned does xbox 360 work ok?
#13
Works perfect !!

Just wont connect to live thats all

If your gonna play it , take the network lead out :thumbsup: , better to be safe.

Once the consoles banned atm theres no unbanning unless it was banned accidentally that is, that way you can still get it reflashed before you get banned.
#14
cool
i might start playing mine again!

Taking the network lead out doesn't work. The console keeps track of information so next time you connect it will send the info instead.

So will you get banned if your console has been modded but you only play originals online. ???? I have heard that its ok .... its a urban myth. People got banned for playing non-stealth backups. Can an microsoft update bar you.

Thats why I said if your gonna use it before getting the latest firmware flash take the network lead out.

Simple reason is then he won`t accidentally connect to live.

Once re-flashed it can`t up load information it dosn`t have.

And before you say it`s still stored, it`s been proven that this method does work :thumbsup:

No one knows exactly how Microsoft detected the consoles. and obviously there not going to let on.

One things for sure to be absolutely safe have a modded one and a none modded one.

As the old saying goes ` Play with fire your gonna get burned` ;-)

It`s like gambling, you should only ever gamble what you can afford.
If you can`t afford it, STAY WELL CLEAR !!
