Xbox Live Question
Posted 05 November 2004 - 12:26 PM
If you want to be 100% LIVE Compatible, be sure to have nothing on the hard drive that the box wouldn't put their on it's own. (Hacked Gamesaves, Dashboards, Applications, Games, Exploits....). Also, don't be dumb and connect with a modified kernel/bios.
It seems that ever since the leak of Halo 2, MS have been doing some things to attack us modders. As we are unsure on the exact nature of these 'scans'; hundreds of people have been banned for reasons that wouldn't have warranted a ban previously.
Some theories that have been come up with involve the scanning of the 'C' and possibly 'E' parition of the drive. I'm unsure on what they are looking for exactly otherwise I'd specify. Another possible solution would be those people that have a swapped out 'xboxdash.xbe' file on 'C'. There is more than likely a checksum being done on the file. This is extremely dangerous to UDE/UXE users that use retail games for live purposes
thats basically it, now really wut i want is a simple answer of wut exactly is needed to go on live

|I have never used live, so I can't tell you from experience, but I can tell you from knowledge that if you put everything in F you will be safe. Since a stock hd has no F partition, it will never look there. You can put your dashboard(s) there as well and boot to them.|
so if i jus put all my bios, dashboard, xbox media centre, everything that wasnt there before on the f drive, then i shouldnt b caught right?? and jus wondering will the f drive b automatically there when i get my chip (my installer is orderin it now, so i dun have it in my xbox yet)
|an unmodded box is the best thing ... to Not get f**ked by MS|
actually that is no help 4 me, cuz i really want this chip and i really want live

That's my knowledge, however I would like for someone that uses live to respond, because I can't talk from experience.

|If your hard drive is stock, then it needs to be a seagate to have a F partition. You need to format F and you will get 2GB. If you have a larger hd, you will have an F already.|
mine is a stock hard drive, so what do u mean by "seagate" is it just another program like dvd2xbox or wuteva, or is it sumtin difference, please gimme a push in da right direction.

i dun exacly know wuts goin on, but im jus gonna take my chances, and jus if im gonna go on live, jus turn off the modchip and hope for the best
but really, can m$ do this, like having a modchip isnt illegal, backing up your own BOUGHT games is legal, so im jus wonderin if their takin it 2 far by tryin 2 find programs needed to play backed up games, i know they dont want it on live bcuz u can cheat, but there really is no point in banning people who are going on live with their modchip turned OFF, so they cant cheat
