I'm strongly considering buying a smartxx chip for my xbox, but before I do I want to be less confused. I read the instructions that said the power button boots to the smartxx OS, and the eject button is direct-boot. So if I use the eject button, does the xbox load to the default M$ dashboard and the modchip is off to prevent banning from Live? Or does it just mean it bypasses any dashboard loading and the chip is still on?
I tried a search for this, but I couldn't get any results.
