The best thing to do is to use the latest iXtreme firmware and play online....If you dont get banned then thats good, if you do get banned it was a risk you had to take from the time you flashed your 360

M$ read your firmware (the thing you flashed), not the games you play, so you have equal chance of getting banned by playing back-up or original games.
If that was true, everyone who has flashed their firmware would have been banned. The current theory is that as long as you use 1:1 backups (created with a samsung 360 drive) then you will be ok on live. Therefore, using originals in a flashed drive should be fine, for the time being at least.
I flashed my 360 with iXtreme 1.4 5x, just to make the drive quieter. I don't care about backing up my games, I just use the originals. I play on LIVE all the time and havn't been banned. Watch out though, if M$ do start detecting the firmware, you will be banned whether its an original you are playing, or not.

i used to frequent live before i modded my xbox, but after that i havent even plugged a ethernet cable in. now ever since my brother started playing COD4 on live i decided to try it with 1.4 ixtreme and a original disc, of course, and was soon banned

Every time MS finds a way to detect modified firmwire they will ban conversely the people who create the firmware will find a way to thwart their detection. This goes back and fourth.
The only way to stay safe is not to use modified firmware otherwise proceed at your own risk.
