I'm new here, but please don't disregard my post. I recently switched Xbox's with a friend who had an early version of the fw, but no access to the internet ever. I upgraded to 5.3 and used my hdsk, and I'm currently not banned again. I'm not currently playing any backups, just halo3 beta through crackdown. Hope that helps alittle.
Why on earth would you flash it then go on Live? The xbox will also get banned. Flashing 5.3 does nothing.
