    You need a modchip if you want to play xbox live. Without a modchip, the flashed BIOS may get you banned from xbox live.

    If you get a modchip, like one of the new xecuter models, the mod can be switched off, so you can boot from the MS dash, and access xbox live, only with an original game. And yes, when you get your chip, if it is pre-flashed, it is probably some sort of a linux bios. This will not allow you to install any 3rd party apps/homebrew apps. You'll have to locate a different bios to flash your chip with.
