    Oh yeah you'll be banned, no doubt. The switches are for flashing BIOS. Go to http://www.teamxecuter.com and read up the FAQ's page.

    in order to play a backed up game in the first place you must have a hacked bios...now if you sign onto live with the hacked bios(chip enabled) you WILL BE BANNED...you must use the original stock bios, and original game to play on xbox live...and if you mod your xbox after you have already been on live, you must use the stock hd as well.

    Thanks
    But just to clarify what you said
    If I upgrade my bog standard which I have already been playing on line with ,with a mod chip Xecuter 3 CE Mod Chip and XBox Xecuter 3 (X3) Control Panel and larger hard drive even with the switcher the hard drive will be detected.
    Are you saying its because ive already been on line and they will know ive updated it

    If this is so could I bye a new already moded and with a lg h.d and switcher and use this on line.

    if you mod a xbox that has already been on xbox live and you upgrade the hd you will get banned...the only way around it is to buy a new xbox, and mod it, and you should be able to upgrade the hd...or the best solution: have 2 xbox's 1 for live and 1 for everything else.

    do not try and play backups on live and do not try and play games of your hd on live...you will be banned instantly...everything must be stock(chip off etc...) and you must use original games.

    Its safe to say that the recent crop of XBL bans have come about by M$ collecting your eeprom data including your HDD serial number / key when you sign up to Xbox Live for the first time - this is what's known as the "Marriage Theory".

    So basically if you upgrade your hard drive after signing up to XBL your account will get fried. We feel there is no "drive scanning" taking place so dont be paranoid about where you are storing your files.

    Solution?: Upgrade your hard drive BEFORE signing up to the XBL service.

    Better Solution?: Hacking the firmware of the upgraded hard drive to have the same serial number / key as your stock hard drive.

    We will have a play - as I'm sure others will.

    I modded my box and put a 120 gig HDD in. I then signed up for XBox Live and all was well. I recently upgraded the chip in it as well as the HDD to a 160 gig. I don't have the option of signing into xbox live anymore. Have I been banned? I have the 120 gig drive, still, and I may have done an EEPROM backup somewhere along the line. Can I get back on Live? Any suggestions are much appreciated.
