    My xbox 360 is flashed but i want to play games online, i have heard many different opinions on using it online

    i have heard that if i play original games online even with a flashed xbox 360 console, MS cannot detect that the console has been flashed. Is this true?

    Also, on a thread on this forum, 2 people where discussing whether a guy with a flashed xbox 360 console ciould play backup games online and not get banned, the 2nd guy continued to tell the guy with the flashed console to go to Dashboard > Sytem > Console Settings > System info > and then tell him what the version of thw dashboard he had, the guy read it as :

    D:2.0.2858.0 - k:2.0.2858.0 (BK:2.0.1888.0)

    Then the guy continued to tell him that the games could be upgraded, and that he could play backup game snline witout being banned, after reading this i checked my dashboard version, but mine is different, mine reads :

    D:2.0.5766.0 - K:2.0.5766.0 (BK:2.0.1888.0) X:01BC-9889-032E-9321

    What does this mean?
    and can i go on xbox live with my flashed console to play original games or not?

    please reaply i will be very greatful

    everything that you read was a complete lie. Let me give you the facts:
    1. Can you play backups online-YES
    2. Can you get banned for thi-YES
    3. What are your chances of getting banned, I would estimate 50-50 at this point.
    4. Are there ways to help avoid getting banned (notice i did not say ways you will NEVER get banned)- YES. By using quality media like Verbatim, By making sure all of your copies are stealth patched, by making sure your console always stays up to date with the current drive flash available.

    You should be fine playing originals online as from what most people speculate it is bad back up copies that are the cause of people getting banned. But i doubt highly that anyone can tell you and be 100% certain that Microsoft has no way to detect a flashed console.

    As far as dashboard and game updates, well once you sign into Live you have no choice. You either update the dashboard or game, or you can not sign onto Xbox Live. So there is no avoiding it.

    The "k" and the 4 digit number are what's important. That's your kernal. The latest kernal is 6683. Your kernal is 5766. So the first time you sign on to LIVE, you will be asked to update. If you don't update, you'll just be signed out of LIVE.

    IF YOU REALY WANT TO PLAY XBL THEN GET ANOTHER UNMODDED xbox to play original Xbox games. I wish I would have done this befor I got banned. Well any ways I could still play if I get another system. But it's not a matter of if you get banned it's a matter of when. There are over 10 milloin people playing XBOX live. It will take some time before they catch up to you. They know that people are playing modded systens online so they are always pushing the envelope to find a way to catch modded xboxes. It's like this if you don't want to become embarassed like I did when I called Tech support and they said I was banned, then just go out and get another xbox.

    I would have to agree with the above. That is the ONLY 100% sure fire way that you can have the best of both worlds. This of course means that you would have to buy every game you play online. So it may not be an option for you XBL addicts. But for people who only play 1-5 games online and the rest offline it is a great option.

    When you play your backups, make sure you have your cable unplugged before you even put a disc in the tray. The 360 will communicate with MS even if you're not signed in to your gamertag.
