    hi, i keep seeing posts about whether you'll get banned from live by playing a backed-up game, but have yet to really see anything mentioning if you'll get banned from simply going onto live and downloading demos, etc. but never actually playing any backed-up games.

    Make sure your firmware is up to date and you should be fine [​IMG]

    Nothing on 1.2c has been banned yet so your safe on that so far, and nobody can see anything different now between the functioning drives which will allow ms to tell if you have modified firmware.

    so there is no way for ms to see if you have a modded firmware if you have the latest ixtreme firmware??

    At the moment it can't be detected. Make sure you have ixtreme 1.2 installed. It could all change when microsoft release the new firmware in august. Playing games too early when they've been uploaded is a good give away your using a modded console.

    Hum, I still got the Xtreme 52 firmware, or whatever it was called, and I didn't get banned, yet. Been doing Demos, Arcade and lots of games. Played Halo 3 early.

    I don't play on Live though. Don't wanna spend the money on Gold.
