So this is what I have discovered… After the spring update, my Samsung ms28 with NME-360 1.2 kept freezing up for a minute or so. This also happened to my Hitachi drive flashed with the 2.4 firmware. It seemed as if the spring update checked if the console was modded in any way, then reported the consoles serial number to Xbox Live, which in turn banned that console. Even if you not hooked up to broadband but have a modded console with the new spring update, you screwed when you connect to Live! Bad luck for people who want to reverse or remove their mods. If your console was modded when you updated your console with the spring update, the update will still report back to Live, and ban your console! So now you thinking, I won’t update my console with the spring update! Unfortunately all the latest 360 game’s like Forza 2 will have this security update on the disc. So, if you want to play online with originals and you have a modded console, reverse or remove your mods before you plan to update with the spring update. The update will report back to M$ that your console is Kosher!
