    Although that's not to say it couldn't happen in the future... Just look at recent history of Xbox360 banhammers falling from the sky.

    your better flashing with ixtreme 1.2c as its the latest one. Something to do with if the xtreme doesn't boot the none stealth games, the 360 makes a log file of games that haven't been booted, then microsoft can get the log file anytime they want. ixtreme 1.2c either stops the log file from being created or the 360 sending the information to microsoft.

    If you're VERY careful, I suppose you could get the warranty seal off safely. Otherwise, I haven't heard of a way -- you have to split the case open to do it.

    If he only means breaking the warranty seals, I suppose you can dremel through the side of the case -- voids your warranty still, but the stickers haven't been touched.

    Don't think so. Samsung only, the hitachi one should be round soon. Just make sure all the backups your playing are stealth patched. You can get the warranty sticker off without breaking it by using a hairdryer. But its not meant to be a 100% guarantee. Something like flashing your 360 I would do myself. The main reason being if you have to update the firmware again or you have to flash back to the original firmware for one reason or another.
