My friend was asking me about 360 mods, and since I haven't really looked into them yet (don't have money for a 360 right now), I didn't know which to recommend. Can anyone recommend a good 360 mod for running "back ups"? Also, are they drive firmware based, or mod chip based? Finally, Xbox Live, does it work with modded 360's, and if so, what's the risk of being banned? I personally don't care if I have Live access on my Xbox, but I know my friend uses it a lot, so I think he'd want to keep it. I remember I had my original Xbox modded and could never get Live because it could detect the mod chip very easily (even if you disconnected from Live, flashed to the original firmware, and reconnected, it would log any firmware changes and upload them to Microsoft, who would then ban your mac address). I thought I read some where that people go on Live all the time with modded 360's. Thanks in advance if anyone can answer this.
