    Everyone.... Hide your stuffs. Microsoft caught on, and are issuing Profile Bans. If you didn't download from the Download History, or play a non-jtag game you should be fine.

    I followed your guide on a GTA IV non-jtag and matching profile, but when selecting the profile on the Xbox, it shows up as corrupted. I have to navigate to settings>memory>flashdrive>profiles to even get at it. Trying the steps again, the same thing happens. I'm using an 8GB flashdrive, if that means anything.

    Any thoughts? Thanks for the tutorial anyways.

    If it's corrupt, then it's most likely the fault of the uploader. Try to find another profile, with the same game and retry. Although, the games are signed to a specific profile, you can resign them by redownloading it from the download history. (It won't redownload the entire game, just resign it.) Although people say not to, and go to great lengths to prevent you from doing so.

    As a word of caution, I'd stay off the non-jtag games until the rumored ban wave has ceased.

    When I go to the downloaded account and try and play the non-jtagged game I downloaded it shows up as the trial version, why is this?

    Thanks.

    Are you sure the account you downloaded was associated with the game? Check first, if it says it is and you still can't access check on the game marketplace and see if the game was purchased, if not then inform the uploader of their mistake. If it has then redownload the game and try it again. If it still doesn't work, again inform the uploader of it and try and see if he knows what is wrong.


    EDIT: Oh and whatever you don't DON'T DOWNLOAD THE GAME FROM THE GAME MARKETPLACE!!!

    lol this is awesome, piracy without piracy leaning on the trust of your fellow pirate.

    Also do I use account recovery to get the profile?

    Just an update, it seems Microsoft has stopped the ban wave on NonJTAG users, it's considered safe to play now. Although I HIGHLY suggest setting up a second profile if you ever use this method, that way you don't lose any DLC or achievements and what not if they start banning again.

    I just use a flashed dvd drive, and keep a spare (The original) for when I update.
    I have hundreds of spare blank DL dvds so its all good with me.

    So what is this exactly, I'm kind of confused. You give out your password to your friends and they download whatever you bought? As for as companies are concerned, that's piracy isn't it?

    2 Questions,

    1. I got everything to work, when I started the game it said it needed to download xMB of game data to continue, if I press no it signs me out of Xbox live.

    My question is, is it safe to download the additional data?

    2. (& this could be because of declining the above) I got an arcade game & when I started it, it was the trial. How do I fix this?


    Thanks.

    1. It's safe to download these, it's just an update to the game.

    2. Make sure you are signed in to the profile that came with the account that downloaded it, once it gets to the main menu of the game log out and log back in with your account and you should be able to play. I did hear some Arcade games don't work so it may depend on the game you are trying to play.

    They did, but on the Microsoft forums I believe they stated they were ending the ban wave and got all the offenders whom they were looking for. So now the chance of getting banned for this is quite slim, but still a possibility. But I personally wouldn't worry about it, as I've used this method for quite a lot of games to test them out and so far I haven't been banned at all. If you're worried about being banned, just create a new gold profile for use with this method and only buy 3 months of gold at a time.

    This is the best exploit ever and will work untill microsoft does a dashboard update that blocks modded profiles forever.

    to op it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you put a disclaimer that many people have been banned [check the 360iso forums for a 130 page thread of people posting about their ban] microsoft knows when you do this just once so it is NEVER SAFE so never switch to your main account, this is confirmed traceable before the first update and after so no one is safe cause next ban wave it probably won't be profile bans but console ones
