According to http://x360.gx-mod.com/ (serious french news site) someone found a way to unban 360 consoles from the Xbox Live! Not a very easy procedure yet though. Full topic in french: http://gueux-forum.net/index.php?showtopic=174687 Basically he was able to change his console's serial number. He tried a few times entering a random serial number, and unfortunately his attempts failed. Then he tried using a serial number from an existing, non-banned console and.. it worked! His console was unbanned. I think we can expect more news soon... maybe even tutorials (in english this time) That's good news anyway at least now, we know it can be done.
