    Live updates are fine , they won't do anything to the firmware.

    I haven't done it myself (yet), but i try and keep up on the scene. And from what i've been reading, there's no full reason for why ban-sessions occur on such a large scale every now and again. Of course, playing a pre-release (read: leaked) copy of a game that you've downloaded, you will be banned when that game goes live (if not sooner).

    But for my end, i don't know if a flashed dvd can or cannot be detected by 360 updates.

    I can't give you a final answer, but do some heavy research before flashing your 360. If you REALLY like Live play (downloads and everything), which I do, then i'd hold off for a while about flashing until something 100% undetectable is figured out.

    (hell, and i hack every system i can get my hands on... i just loves my Live a bit too much [​IMG])

    live works fine with ixtreme 1.5, even ixtreme 1.4 is still undetectable by microsoft [​IMG]

    flashing really should not effect anything about the xbox and how it works. All it allows is backups and nothing else, and thats why its so popular.

    PS: I haven't played in a while, so IDK.

    Hmmm... interesting. I might look into iXtreme 1.5 in a short time here. That would be a new, fun hack with which i could mess around.

    WOAH, stop. DO NOT intent to put old backups of xbox. They are single layered. To play backups of xbox games, you need to rip them as a 360 game, then burn it to a dual layered disc. If you need to find them online, they are called xbox360E games. e stands for emulated. Personally, I haven't tried a xbox backup on my 360, but I know tons of people who say they think they got banned because of it.
