Thats exactly what I feared and stupidly removed the block on my router to update FSD. Even though Live has always been blocked it shows as if its communicating with M$ and thats without signing in.
Anyways, whats the worst scenario if were banned? It's not like were ever gonna be able to use the service on a Jtag console.
Edit: I'm meaning for someone who never uses Live at all and would only want it for some desperate download.
If the above mentioned resistor is removed, it would only ruin your flash, probably E79/E74, and you'd have to link the console up and reflash your NAND. If not, it could remove your jtagged console's exploitability entirely.
Microsoft might also be able to come up with some other way to ruin/patch the jtag hack too in the future and push that update, but who knows - this is all speculation.

Thank you very much for taking the time to sniff all this stuff for us.
As per your last post, how would one go about applying such code to a router running Tomato?
I'm not sure. You'd have to browse the Tomato forums/wiki, or ask for help perhaps on their forums. You may be able to add the commands to the 'firewall' settings if you can find anything like that on your firmware, I don't know I'm afraid, I've never used Tomato.

Ok I did some more to try to disable my connection to live, and I got the ban notice from being connected to live less than 15 seconds yesterday.
does anybody know the implications for this on freebo 9199, I think nothing since f\/ck live, and 9199 has no hdd corruption. Is there anything I am not aware of?
The HDD corruption is indeed still present on 9199 - I can confirm this from my other console being banned (non jtag). I doubt there will be any problems for you now, unless you update (or microsoft find a way to force an update).

Does this only happen if you launch the game from FSD? My guess is since FSD is connecting to the internet, it's disabling (or bypassing) the XBL blockage in the console settings.
No, this is not the case I'm afraid. It's a direct handshake with the Microsoft servers, it's nothing to do with FSD. Plus FSD connects to its own servers and I believe (unconfirmed) microsoft's to fetch artwork - although I'm yet to sniff this. I'm away this weekend, I will when I'm back.
