Unlikely...

However it WILL modify/replace your existing dash, so you'll need the original dashboard up before installation.

MS has stated that they would be looking for non-original games, not mod chips. with Xbox Live.

Makes sense when you consider it. They still collect money from you for XBLive, then they force you to have an original game to play it via Live.

It's a no brainer for them.

The 2 new games coming this week for beta testers has the dashboard update. If you are a beta tester and go to the beta tester forums, you will see that people are getting the new dash. my new games will be here tonight and i guess i will have to remove my evo x dash and let the update do its thing to the original ms dash. did anyone here get the new games?

thanks

Download code, activate "security" check on disk.

No big deal to do as the original DVD's were designed for this.
A replacement drive would not return the correct result.
