I think people who play online with mods are either very brave or a little daft :)

MS does everything in its will to take the ability to play online away from the modded console user, remember this is a large slice of their bread and butter (the online play). Every time C4eva has beaten them they come back with a different set of challenges.

It may well be safe but for how long and when will MS find out before you have a chance to update..

Whilst I’m not answering your question directly I’m just saying, stay safe..

I personally think it’s pretty stupid of them to ban people from Live. They lose all of the money they would otherwise get from subscriptions and marketplace content.

Whilst true they can’t be seen giving favour to the pirates..

They really have no choice

i understand the band wave guys. looking for info on weather or not ms can detect if drive is locked or unlocked and is it safe to leave unlocked.

just to mention i don’t believe that ms bans people unless they have a jtag or they try to do those “no jtag needed/use this weird profile for gods”. i have a friend with an xbox that has a bad xval, because he must’ve failed an ap2.5 check or something. he still plays online all the time with his same profile and console. only catch is that when he needs to move his profile or if someone moves onto his box and back again we need to “uncorrupt” the files, which only takes a minute.

09 big ban wave over 1 million consoles banned never to sign on to live again. so trust ms does ban and xval is of no use anymore it is obsolete and can not be trusted as for ur friend he is flagged for ban and prob in november sometime he will be console banned. or when ms flicks the switch of all flagged consoles. that is the way it has always been with the ban wave

i think the xval is of no use to MS anymore either because so many people were getting bad xvals from playing scratched ap2.5 games… so i don’t think MS will ban you just for having a bad xval… he has been “flagged for ban” for a long time and people have been telling me “oh he’ll get it in the next wave” but i don’t think that will ever happen. he buys stuff from the marketplace and pays for a live subscription so i don’t think microsoft wants to lose that share of the market. there are many modders who don’t have jtags and still pay for live, dlc, and xbla. wasn’t the 09 ban wave from people who were playing online with ixtreme 1.6 which was NOT live safe or playing games that were wave patched or in other ways had the data compromised??

ms got a lot of unwanted atten. in 09 banwave so i think the banwave may not happen in the same fashion but who knows?
