My brother has been banned also...latest firmware....samsung drive.

He said he phoned microsft and they want 86 pounds to sort it out, im not 100% sure he has been banned i am trying to find out more.

He said he cannot sign into live at all.

I havent turned mine on yet....latest firmware...samsung....but reading other forums it seems some people have been banned.


EDIT

Yes he has been banned SAMSUNG DRIVE....LATEST FIRMWARE.....same banned screen as posted above......DO NOT TURN ON YOUR CONSOLES!

Same problem here and I also played Halo 3 beta earlier today.

Mine is a Hitachi 47 drive with Xtreme firmware 2.4 (with Jitter fix).

Looks like MS leaked false info to the firmware modders and the check got through sad.gif

Well I am playing online the entire day with 5,3 samsung and didnt try halo 3 and didnt got banned.

It seems halo3 is owning you people.

I never used 5.2 on new dashboard update only latest.

I got banned too.
Hitachi drive here.
I haven't touched the firmware since I modded my box and that was couple of months ago.
And yea this happened after testing the Halo 3 beta.
The game sucks so much that it might be just a trick to get us modders banned.
Maybe the copied Crackdown had somekind of serialnumber that MS is using to ban modders so don't touch the Halo 3 BETA.
Damn.. should have waited some time and check these forums before I downloaded that piece of shit beta.
I'm going to miss GoW sad.gif
Guess I have to get that 360 Elite then.
