well i haven’t heard of anyone saying their xval went bad from spoofing (i know xval doesn’t matter). and no one has told me they were banned from spoofing. however, some people still seem to think that bans always happen in “waves” and when the “next wave hits” everyone is going to get banned. i totally do not believe in “ban waves” anymore. i think microsoft messed up when they banned people who failed the ap2.5 with poor quality original discs, so they are hesitant to ban a bunch of people again without being sure they have a good reason. obviously if you take a jtag online you are out of luck, i’m not saying they will never ban anyone, but even if they say spoofing is not “supported”, i doubt they would ban for it.

also found this: “I don’t think c4e ever mentioned spoofing not working on the Fat boxes….the only reason it wouldn’t work for Slims is that they have real-time FW checks.”
2010-11-13 : new dash at some point checks slim drive fw, once it has spoof will cease to work

so NO SPOOFING of slims for sure!

my thought is that the fat drives are just not able to do realtime fw checks. i mean seriously i had a spoof and tried to update to 13599 twice, it knew something was wrong since it couldn’t write to it, but i never had any problems from that.

QuickMythril:
The best deal I can find on a BenQ VAD6038 drive (which is the only one I would want, screw the Lite-On’s) is $49.99 + shipping. It’s a refurb, but includes a 30 day warranty and isn’t from ebay (I don’t trust ebay at all anymore, especially with electronics)

I just don’t know if it’d be worth it, I have the Xecuter Blaster CK3 installed in my xbox so I never need to open the case to flash firmware. I have no problem with electronics, but I’m hesitant to keep messing with something as finicky as an Xbox360 manufactured in June of 2006 since I’ve had absolutely zero issues with it *knocks on wood* (aside from no Lt+ 2.0 of course hah).

I may buy the BenQ, but I don’t know that I would go through all the dismantling and spoofing even though I don’t use Live for anything so I couldn’t care less about a potential ban; I would use the BenQ in my PC as a ripping drive. I think the best option for me personally is to just wait for Hitachi 2.0, even though there has been nothing updated regarding an ETA.

P.S.
Sorry m8, I’ve been typing your nick wrong from the start – I always added one too many L’s at the end! :oops:

No spoofing just your drive key in the firmware to whatever model you replacing your drive with.
