Using modified firmware and going online usually does the trick.

Hi m8, the reason it is banned is because you cannot connect a modded box up to XBox Live. Hence the name banned - from Live
#3
A unmodded xbox reads the disc and takes like half a second to get a reply from the disc saying its a propper disc.A modded xbox automatically just says that its a proper disc (when it isnt) without checking , and replies in less then a second. Microsoft can run this test via live to check peoples disc.
banned#4
what kind of ban?is it hard ware ban?
for example punk duster ban you but too many times and you get HARDWARE BAN so pc cant use punkbuster
does the 360 get hardware ban and if so WHAT hardware is banned?
#5
ok cheers for replies so far

soooo......

if you was to buy a modded 360, use back up games for offline play and use the originals for online play, would this mean that you wont get banned?

its just that i see people saying not banned from live, but whats the difference if you get it and get bannded straight away lol

no differece safest thing is dont use a modded one online.

ok sorry for sounding a little thick....

but if i buy a modded xbox, (which isnt banned from live) i can still use my original games to go online, and then come offline and play back ups?
#8
No - once modded - the discdrive doesn't do the check on the disc at all - so doesn't matter whether or not they're real or back-ups
#9
ahhh....thankyou

so if you wanted to play back ups and still be online youd have to have 2 consoles, that sucks :) guess ill ust stay legal then

using modified firmware alone wont get you banned

once modded the drive does more checks on the disc to make sure it is patched, if it isnt patched correctly it wont boot

aslong as you make sure that the games are correctly patched then you will be fine, get a kroen drive to make sure there backed-up correctly
#14
thanks, very informative
#15
you must burn the game with the patch which you can use on live, eveytime a new firmwire comes out upgrade, i have an Ixtreme, well had and got 3 RROD and went on live and never got banned.
#16
i'm really interested in this too...can you un-ban your console?
#17
No, you can't

No, you can't

what gets BANNED on the console?as when you get a HARDWARE ban on punkbuster you can change hardware till you figure out whats banned then change it.any idea of how the xbox gets banned?as someone out their will have got a banned one working again as it always happens.maby not in england but in a foreign country they will have.

If you have ixtreme firmware you'll still get banned as i found out! safest way not to get baned is to stay legit or buy 2 consoles! M$ are able to track the SS, DMI, PFI (security sectors on xbox 360 games, a bit complicated) they can check if this information is on the disks and if it is valid, if it's not they know its an illegal copy and ban you! the console ID of the xbox is banned, meaning that it can never be used on Live again, someone has found a way round it but at this early stage its very complex and you need another xbox to complete process anyway so kinda pointless at mo!

Mine is ok up to now not been banned as yet, has been modded for approx a month and I play alot of online gaming, I have a premium 360 with benq drive flashed with the fast option on ixtreme V1.3beta
#24
If your using the Ixtreme mod then its down to the games them selfs if they aint stelthed properly then your going to get banned
#25
Mine has been modded and been playing backed up games for around 8 months now and still going
#26
apparantly the 1.3beta won't load the game if it isn't stealthed so i'm guessing my games must be stealthed
