Apparently YES

The thinking is they can tell that your firmware has been modded, so when you appear online you console will be added to the ban hammer list. If you've played online in past few months, they may already have your console details and it may only be a matter of time before the bans issued.

Even re flashing back to the original fw may not save it as they can still tell you've modded and have been playing copies (NAND). Better staying offline unless you want the ban and some features disabling from your console (Can't play from HDD on banned console).

You knew the risks when you chose to mod the xbox. Here they are.

The thing is, I bought a console that was pre modded, I have had this console for 6 months now, never been online, have only been playing legit games offline and thought I'd play MW2 online for the first time, is there no way around it ?

Yes you will. You'll be banned anyway, you're already earmarked for a ban. Everyone is.

It's not an if you'll be banned, it's a when.

If you've had it six months and never been online, its unlikely yours is flagged. I'm guessing the detection stuff came in on the August update. MS have probably been sat on the ban list until MW2 was released and there are no more cheap Arcade consoles to replace them.

With the money you've not spent on games over the last 6 months, buy yourself a clean one. Use this for online, with originals and keep you modded one for trialing offline games. If you do enjoy a game, then you should really do the decent thing and buy it.

I'm sure the majority of people frowning on your console situation have at some stage watched a pirate DVD, listened to copied music or installed some non-official software on their computer.
