OK... I got banned from live about 3 months ago for a modded xbox (don't ask, I was just stupid and logged on with my modchip on). I found someone who was kind enough to swap xboxes with me... so I'm back on live...

BUT... it seems like with the latest version of XBox live it AUTOMATICALLY logs you onto xbox live as soon as you turn on the xbox (if there is no game in!!!!!!). WHAT'S the deal with THAT?? Has anyone gotten banned for this???

I'm a little worried... especially since I've managed to turn into a total Pandora Tomorrow addict over the last week. Does anyone have any advice/experience with this? I haven't gotten banned yet... but i'm allready dreading turning on my xbox tomorrow.... :-(

Thanks for the speed replies...

I have the X-BIT chip.

So, does this mean that I've allready been banned??? (since it has logged on with a cracked bios???). I guess I'll find out tomorrow....

Thanks,
Mark

The Ansewr is:

YES, I've been banned. Darn.

OH well.... I've allready got the latest X2 bios with XBox live block... but this is seriously annoying. GRAGH!

Yeah, the newer X2 bioses will prevent you from going on live.-- however, they did it some strange way, because apparently you have to test it "per game". I tried with Splinter Cell PT and it worked. Should've gotten this bios before I got banned... that's ok, I just went out and got myself a new xbox :-D

Questions:

1) If I install evox dash, will this get me banned as well??? I *REALLY* don't want to get banned again... so, just making sure. As long as the evox dash named something else, this will NOT get me banned... correct? Anyone, everyone, please confirm!! :-)

Any other tips for a dumbnut like me are much appreciated....

Thanks,
Mark

Why the heck did you buy another XBOX?!?!?! I got banned from the auto login as well. All I did was go buy and put in a new EEPROM file on my banned XBOX. It worked great.

be sure to turn off auto login heh smile.gif

its cool... as far as i know you cant change the dash to play on live or am i wrong.

i have never played on live, evertime my xbox boots up it goes to my xenium os v2 and from there i can pick which dashboard app game etc etc... so if i were to start using xb live how would that operate without getting banned. would i have to select the original ms dash and login to xbox live uhh.gif

OK, I'm an idiot... and I just found out about the new eeprom option!!! I guess that's what makes me a certified NOOOOOB.

OH well... so it goes, live and learn.... :-)

Thanks everyone for the help.
