Your chip is what xbox live detects, If the chip is enabled and you try going on live then you will be canned. All the bios does is boot code.. Its more or less an issue of stability of each bios, use M8 or X2 if you have a cheaper chip and stick with the X3 bios for the X3 only.

Not true. The BIOS is what Xbox Live detects not the chip (otherwise TSOPers would be very happy). Some BIOS (check to make sure, cause I dont know about M8) have Xbox Live blocking which basically prevents you from being able to sign on (says that cable is not connected) with hacked BIOS so a ban can never take place with your chip on. I know that the latest X2 & X3 BIOS both have this feature.

I was speaking of the chip in general, you can cut the D0 line before the xbox boots and the chip wont get detected even though its still on the LPC bus

I was wondering if the M8 prevents games from logging into Xbox Live in a non retail bios? Or prevents you from logging in by accident.

thanks

Since nobody has graced you with a reply yet, I will. EvoX M8 does not have XBL blocking built in. However, you can find the M8plus Metoo edition at the usual place and this has X2-style Live blocking built in, though I haven't tested it.
