I've never ran any of my backups through abgx360 with my xkey (using the remote). Should I stealth patch them all thrhoug abgx360?

I've played about 4 "backups" and installed about 10 already without playing them yet. I even played one of them online. So I'll abgx360 them all, but what are possible consequences of the games I've played and installed already?

Getting a flag (failed AP2.5/empty topology etc)
And if you're flagged, you'll eventually get a ban ;]

Wow, finally someone that's honest about it :-)

I pirate and purchase games.
The lesser games I pirate and the good ones I purchase ;]
I also backup me own games and play those on me RGH (easier to bring along then a ton of discs ;])

I also "backup" all of my games. The Slim Xbox 360 disc drive makes a lot of noise and emulating it with a disc drive makes it just about silent in comparison. But I'll definitely abgx360 all my backups from now on. I've actually let a few non patched discs out into the wild, for friends who also want to preserve their original discs and use backups instead. Telling them that I need it back would feel kinda like calling old partners to tell them you have been diagnosed with an STI.

Is there a GBATemp or DinohScene recommended abgx360 guide? Hopefully the backups I've already installed were already patched (I get whacked on mescaline whenever I rip my backups, so I'm never sure what goes on during the process), but I'll run everything through abgx360 with recommended settings. We should probably sticky a thread with links to the best guide for it, if stealth patching is an important process that is considered mandatory for full security.

So mine is coming in a few days time. I actually own over a 100 original retail discs. If im ripping these to a hard drive, is it wise then to run all of them through this abgx or because they are mine and I know they are proper retail games, do i not need to for these? Only for downloaded ones?
