Hey so I am interested in buying a 360 sometime in the next few months. I will probably buy a lightly used one from ebay and am wanting to get a slim version with the 250GB drive. I have already done some research and have decided that I want to get the RGH mod installed to it. I have a few questions about this that I hope some of you could answer. - A console with RGH should not ever connect to MS online stuff because it will be banned yeah? This is hopefully not a problem for me – I do not want to play online multiplayer. I do want game updates, however. I understand one of the custom system software installed after RGH will allow this? To actually download the game updates is that done by downloading them from MS servers or is it through sideloading (not downloaded from MS servers)? - How are system updates handled? If a game is released that required newer system software what is the usual procedure here? Is it simply an update to the custom software loader OS thingo you can just download from the internet? - What should I ask when buying from ebay? I understand I should ask for the current system software version, a picture of the back of the system (around where it marks the current near the PSU, and a picture of the open disc tray. That all correct or do I simply need to know the current system software version? If buying a NEW system should I be concerned about one shipping with a system software that is incompatible with RGH? If these questions could be answered I will be very thankful. I plan to get the actual installation done by a local service, so I don't have to worry about that.
