To all those asking about banned consoles, read the threads about it. There are many.
To "unban" a console you would have to meet the following requirements:
a) you have the CPU key and NAND dump from an unbanned console. To do this you'd have had to run the KK or SMC (JTAG) exploit at some point in recent history and boot Xell
you have the CPU key and NAND dump from a banned console. To do this you also need to boot Xell by running either exploit.
In short, if you have a console banned/unbanned console that's been on live within the past 6 months you are fucked (ie anyone banned in october). You can wait around and hope that they find a new exploit for you (unlikely) or you can nut up and move on with your life.

Flash the config too. People saying that you only need the kv, know s*it.
Config has your mac adress, console specific calibration info, fan speed and more in it.
Um, interesting that you'd say something like that, because it seems to me like you don't know much more than them.
In an ideal world, everyone would flash their config sectors. However, some people have issues with the config sectors. Perhaps it is a flashing error, not a problem with the actual data contained, but that doesn't explain why some people only get their systems working after omitting to flash the config sectors. I personally got my console working by only flashing the KV and never went back to try flashing the config sectors. Perhaps some time over the weekend I'll boot into ubuntu and flash my config sectors in with lflash. I'm not saying that it is better to NOT flash config (if you can get yours working with config, more power to you), but opting not to flash the config sectors is an option for those that have issues. It might not be ideal, but it works.
The MAC address might be stored in the config sectors, but that doesn't mean the wired NIC 'loses' its MAC address if you don't flash the config sectors.
Again, I flashed without config sectors and I can tell you with certainty that my router not only sees my JTAG'd 360's MAC address but also properly assigns it a static DHCP address. You can't have network connectivity in modern day networks without a MAC address.
Furthermore, where do you think this config data comes from? Isn't it entirely plausible that the 360 itself would be able to generate all of this info and save it back to the NAND.
