I think it would be much easier to download a back-up off of a bittorrent site, in my situation anyway. None of the stickies have guides on what you need to look for when downloading a torrent of a game and what you need to do to them. Is there a tutorial on this subject? There isn't one sticked and after half an hour of searching this forum I cannot find a tutorial regarding this subject. I'm buying a core 360 and will flash it, which brings me to another question - with the core 360, I will swap HDs with my previously purchased 360 and use the core flashed 360 to play back-ups. I do believe that eventually I will be banned from live with a flashed console so my question regarding that is this - if my core 360 is banned, and I'm using the HD from my unflashed 360, will I have to format my HD after I'm banned in order to use it on my unflashed original 360? Thanks for any input.
