Hey guys, i have 2 xbox 360s right now. I use one for my backups and one for the originals. My question though, can i take my Harddrive from my legit console, with my gold gamertag account, and place it into my modded console allowing me to play online? Or do i need two seperate gold accounts for this?
thanks alot.

As far as I know, you can use the "Recover Gamertag" option in the menu to get online with the other XBOX. You have to be signed out of a profile to be able to access it.
You also would not have to swap hard drives.

swapping harddrives is perfectly fine, and much easier than doing an account recovery each time. account recovery also means you run the risk of losing achievements.

i personally keep my profile on a memory card, that option works too

Doesnt the account recovery cost money? If i recover the gamertag to my modded xbox, would i be able to go online with both then? or would i have to recover it again on my legit system?
thanks.

its free to do account recoveries, but you have to recover back and forth. when you do an account recovery on one system, the account becomes invalidated on the other one. this means that all achievements gained after the last time that box was online will have been lost.

you are MUCH better off swapping hard drives back and forth, or just keeping your account on a memory card if you can pick up a cheap used one. (or if you already have one. i ended up picking up an xbox live arcade pack, and it came with one)

And just to get this straight... if i use my xbox account on my modded console, and i get banned. Only the console is banned right? I can safely swap it back to my legit one with no problems?
thanks for all the help guys.
