    Thanks for putting up with all my questions, seems like ill just have to forget about live completely, i wouldn't want to waste my 120GB for nothing :/

    Either way, i still see that MW2, Forza 3, Borderlands, i.e. the new games got us this time, it seems that MS just finally bothered to do something about it, like they always due before the holidays.

    Thankfully I haven't been banned yet. After reading all these posts I'm going to stay off live until some new firmware is out.

    Going through xbox.com repair section, my console still states it's in warranty also.

    If you have been flagged for a ban and have not had it yet, if you do this trick you will retain the HDD install function when m$ hit you with the banhammer. Do this is if you haven't been able to get a NAND dump as required above.

    no, they just send a message to the system every time you try to login with a internet connection

    When I request a repair it asks me to describe the problem type and also to fill in my name and address. I haven't gone any further then that.

    "I am one of 600,000 to 1,000,000 banned from Xbox Live"

    that number is seriously underestimated. there are way more bans in russia and the middle east.

    600k number solely came from North America, same goes for 1mil target stuff.
    It would be something like double~triple of NA banned numbers worldwide.

    Yea, alot of bans have happened since they announced that it was the number they were "aiming for", so am sure number is higher than a mill...

    Oh man, I wish. If XBLA games could be pirated, I'd be on my 360 24/7.

    What exactly keeps XBLA from being cracked?
    I remember one of the GTA IV expansions could be loaded direct to the HDD somehow without actually buying it...
    If it ever does get cracked, the next step would be figuring out how to get huge hard drives to work [​IMG]
