You can purchase a new EEPROM. When you do this, you do not purchase the EEPROM chip itself, but the key on it. There is some risk to purchasing an EEPROM, because you do not have any defined guarantee that the seller will not sell it to other people or will not use it himself. You're best of purchasing from people you trust and from people with good references.

Once you have the EEPROM data, you can use ConfigMagic to write it to the EEPROM in your motherboard. This will effectively remove the ban on your Xbox, and you can then connect to Live with the same account. This time, make sure your mod is OFF!!! Many people recommend customizing your BIOS so you know if it's the retail or hacked BIOS - colormods, fastani, no ani...whatever.

very simple solution to unban ur xbox,

first if u just got banned, call or talk to MS(www.xbox.com) & tell them theres somthing wrong with ur set, not working on xbox live

& then they will ask u for ur particulars & will send u a CD to unban youself, Voila !!

The solution is so simple , but pp make it so complicated

Doesn't sound too far fetched. Ever tried phoning MS for reactivating your Office/WinXP product key? They give you the info no questions completely anonymously!

Is it true or not? I think I just got banned.

I was using the software control features of the chameleon and selected "Boot from TSOP (Disable Chameleon)" It seemed to work and I even got on live and played last night. I selected the same option today and right when it got to the live dashboard it told me there was a problem. When I selected to troubleshoot it told me I was modified. This sucks.... they just charged me the 50 bucks (going through my account tomorrow.)

I turned my Xbox on with the mod enabled and it didn't have a disk in it. For some reason it went to the xbox live section and logged in. I immediated hit b to go back and shut off the xbox. That was last night. Now today I am getting the message that it could not connect. There was an IP address problem, then it got through that using auto detect. The very last step it came up with the message about not being able to communicate because the software or hardware may have been modified.

It refers you to www.xbox.com/connect . You can call, do interactive chat or send an email. I may try to do the chat or email later. The comment about calling them and getting a disk to fix it and they'll know where you live is BS. If you signed up for LIVE they already know that info cause you had to put your credit card info and address in there.

Has anyone else been banned and successfully got unbanned??? I just paid my renewal Dec. 24th, so this really sucks! You can bet my ethernet cable will stay unhooked until I get ready to play on LIVE if I get unbanned!

You can "unban" yourself buy purchasing a new EEPROM from the buy and sell section of Xbox-Scene. Find a tutorial for how to install it.

Your old Live account should still work.

ALSO - upgrade to the newest Anti-Live BIOS. It will prevent you from accidentally going on Live.

Cuz you didnt configure it NOT to AUTOMATICALLY log in. You can do this thru the refular M$ Dashboard settings.
