    I am sure there have been people banned every day. But some people have just been lucky so far.

    why wait around to get banned? why not flash back to original bin and hope you still don't get banned. then wait for the new firmware to come out and proceed as if nothing ever happened.

    my theory is you paid for Live, why not use it while you can? If you unplug your cord then you pretty much paid for nothing because you don't have Live anyway. Plus if i get banned i won't really care all that Much,

    I don't think it's just luck steimy. Samsung drive, with stealth firmware and stealth backups seem more like it to me. That brand new 360 I flashed with 5.3a after the banning began is still on Live after 9 days now. I've been playing a proper stealth copy of Crackdown for the last 2 days.

    itzjonny,

    Technically you weren't banned 5/31. You just found out about it today. You obviously were already marked for banning before you unplugged.

    Also flashing back to original is a big mistake. Ms can see you have changed fingerprint. If it aint broke,dont try fix it

    im with memnock, sammy with stealth firmware and fully stealth games. but im not so sure about the stealth games because my copy of crackdown was a backup that wasnt stealth and i spent a week playing it online right after the bans started happening. but now with the new ix10 i think im safe for a while.

    Is it just me, or am I the only one that feels that backups should NEVER be played on Live period?

    if you can do it without being busted why not? you arent breaking the law until you get caught.

    why do you say this? surely everyone is entitled to make a copy of their game that they just paiid £50 for! Whats the difference if you play a copy of the game or the original? Its not like you use it to cheat in the games.

    & like mike, i also played my unstealthed crackdown online for a while and as of now I am still not banned. i have since upgraded to the ixtreme.

    its so strange that the same drive with the same firmware has been banned in some consoles but not banned in others.

    maybe it has to do with the different flashing process. i only ever use the mtkflash commands in dos. How do you flash yours Mike?

    You're breaking the law reguardless (as I have as well), you just convince yourself you're not until you DO get caught. Then you go "What the hell happened?"
