    5. i disegree, you may get banned but no one knows for sure, i have had one banned from live but my other two 360's have not been banned and they have been modded for over 8 months.
    definitely a mod chip is not the best way to go, the mod chip will get you banned before the firmware flash.

    The fact you got banned once means that its is possibility, so why run the risk. besides you heard about the guy with halo he got banned hard.. then again his was severe but still i would not want to be known for having backup copies.

    As for flashing goes there was an issue with the elite its not as easy as just buying one it has to have the right drive which is a type samsung, and you have a 75% chance of not getting one.

    i would agree flashing is quicker but im a mod chip guy and i always have been, never had any issues with them.

    But still i would wait for it to mature more before doing anything to an elite

    Here's a question maybe somebody could answer.........

    If you go onto xbox live with a modded 360 using an original disc can you still run the risk of being banned? Or is it only when you go online with "backed up" games.

    Like can they detect the firmware of your DVD Rom online? If they can how is it not possible to mod your 360 without sticking a disc straight into the 360 rather than hooking it up to your pc?

    Does anybody know the process of how they catch you? I mean do they just do random scans of firmwares or do they scan each and every user? I always thought it was when you used backup games, i dont use xbox live that much, but i have used it a few times and have never had any issues, is it inevitable that i will be banned at some time though?
