    NO NO NO don't do it, you will be banned by M$, When you mod the game the games partition will be changed and you will mess up the security info on the disc. I.E. thay won't match anymore, M$ will spot this and it's bye bye on-line xbox 360.

    Original Xbox games can't go on Live.
    Seeing those have barely any security, region changing them might work.
    Then again, if one really wants to play old Xbox games, then it's better to get an old Xbox.

    Considering you would break the signature anyway by changing one bit in the executable (which holds the region information), the game wouldn't start anyway through xk3y means ... so it's not even worth a shot.

    Makes sense, i did try it but no dice, i am guessing the same can be said for the widescreen hacks that can be done to the ISO?
