Ok a couple of days ago I was playing Splinter Cell. it was 4am I beat the game and I was looking at the menu. I saw the option to "download new level" and dispite the fact that I dont have XBL I clicked it and of course got the message that I need Live to D/L but rather than pressing B to cancel I pushed A to "subscribe". Now this was 4am mind you and I wasn't thinking straight... it got about 3/4 of the way through "updating" when I remembered I had a modchip and remembered hearing about modchip problems with XBL and people getting banned. so I dove at my xbox and shut the power off mid update. I booted it back up and Evox was replaced with the MS dash...

I've considered getting XBL for game updates like the splinter cell one. that's all I really care about. So my questions are:

-Could I be banned already? and
-Is there some place I could get the Splinter Cell update other than Live and "the usual places" (I'm not big on piracy)?

twistedsymphony, check the pinned topic here about the Kola Cell download.

BTW, it was not good you turned off your Xbox when it was updating the crucial C drive...I just hope you didn't mess any things up. sad.gif

everything seems to be in order. I typicaly back up my HD afer every change I make so I took the opertunity to install the latest EvoX and XBMP, which is what I typicaly use the xbox for.

hmm it looks like the kola cell d/l is Live only material. I dont have any game back ups so I'm not worried about that end I just want to play the level.

seeing as I dont have Live I can't use the X Y Z code to see if I've been banned. is there some other way I can tell before chaning being banned before I even buy Live, or is my doom pretty certain.

If so what's a good eprom programer to buy ")

.... on another note I didn't really care about ppl leaching my wireless until I caught word that they canceled their internet because they were just leeching off of me... I probably wouldn't have minded had they asked.... but the fools ended up dropping $120 in having their internet "installed" again HAHA

Hi , interesting, I have the same question !!!

In my case, I haven't started the "Xbox Live setup" process, but I have just opened the "download content" menu (without an installed XBLive account) with the ethernet cable plugged in and my router working...

Is there a chance that I might be banned?
Is it possible to check if I'm banned, without having to buy the XBLive starter kit?

Thanks for your answers.

I have to thin you are banned because when you access ANY xbox live menu's (from what i know) it scanes for a modchip and if it sees one it will make a 'bad packet', first time you connect to xbl it sends the packet and then bans your hd key....

from what i know you need to change you HD key and mother board key (on board bios, eprom) thus flashing ur eprom is very dangerous... so...
