Hey guys, i just bought a flashed 360. The person i bought it from told me it was banned from Xbox Live. I have been reading around and ive heard from to many sources that there is not way to Un-Ban yourself. However, i got into the system settings just to check it out for sure myself, because who knows maby it isnt. And when i do a Xbox Live Connection test, it tells me i need to update. Is this a good thing? Is it possible im not banned? If i hit the update button will it tell me it cant update because it can't connect in the first place? Or is it impossible for a banned system to even get to that official update screen? Also, my 2nd and more important question - how do i update the flashed dash? Currently under System Into it reads - Dashboard 2.0.13146.0 I called him about it asking which version of "LT+" it is, and he told it me was "LT+1.9". There are a few games i want to play, that research shows it needs "LT+2.0". How do i update this?? Thats my biggest question. Also, will the offical Dashboard Updates erase the flashed dashboard? What will happen if i do an official update? Will i no longer be able to play burnt games? Last and finally, ive been trying to research if i can run ISO's off of a portable harddrive that is formatted to FAT 32. Ive seen alot of people saying you can with Jtagg, but can i do it with the LT+? Thanks for any responses. Pretty new to all of this stuff.
