Re: X box live ??

If you have a modchip installed and running when you login to xbox-live your xbox will be banned from using their service and it is very hard to get a new key.

If you dont have a modchip in your xbox dont worry about it. All the switch does is disable the modchip.

I am not 100% on this but the same will go if you have changed your xbox bios (no modchip required if the xbox's bios is replaced with a hacked one which allows the booting of unsigned code.)

I think you both need to be sure about the legality of what you're discussing.

Microsoft check for moded Xbox's and if it is moded it will be banned, this can be BIOS, mod chip or bigger hard disk.

Your best getting a second box to play on live if your into the mod scene

Modchips are legal, you dont need to use an illegal hacked bios! A legal bios will allow you to boot linux among other things. The xbox isnt the same without a modchip due to it being so much similair to the pc and no you dont need to mod it just to use it for illegal purposes, thats not my main purpose Wink

To play on Xbox Live you must not have any chip installed. If you have one installed, it must be disabled. With this disabled, any backups of games you legally own will not work, because the chip is needed to play these.

Yes, however, the main purpose for them is the use of copied and/or pirated - AKA illegal - software.

Just as the talk on P2P applications and usage is closly monitored, these topics are too.

Under no circumstances must discussion take place, in aiding the use of illegal material.

On to the Xbox issue though. I thought under the licence of Microsoft (which doesn't surprise me with them), bypassing copy protection functions with hardware toher than that sanctioned by Microsoft is in breech.

That sounds about right: They block these things on Xbox Live because they breach the license.

thanks to all for your advice-- I bought the console 2nd hand from a lad I work with, but obviously I didn't want to wreck my chances of playing live! If I understand you all-
I can disable the chip with a switch that's fitted (which by all accounts is legal) and still go on live with geniuine software HuhHuhHuh

Thats what the switch is for, to disable the mod Smiley

If its disabled xboxlive wont detect a mod now will it!
