I can't see how I would have been flagged but yes I did swap the drive from my old one. However I'm very sure I was never flagged on my old box so I don't see this as a problem. If you can think of anything that I've done wrong so I can avoid this in the future I'll gladly stop flipping out.

There is nothing wrong with this installer at all. Many people have used it without getting banned. Kingroach's Ndure and Krayzie's Ndure are based off the same exploits and softmod techniques. You took a risk when you softmodded your Xbox. There is always a possibility of getting banned from Xbox Live when you modify the Xbox.
That's horsecrap. ndure protagonist has pointed out problems in his hacked xboxdash.xbe
krayzie, I was referring specifically to the xboxdash.xbe's "Live Aware" interaction with XBL (as indicated by my first post above) and ONLY YOUR 1.1[...] INSTALLER hacks that. Consequently, other Ndure installers (including your 1.0) don't have this potential risk.
I suspect this aspect of XBL usage wasn't discussed/debated, as you stated you were unfamiliar with it when related questions arose in your installer's thread. It pertains to an XBL connection that occurs via the Eject boot, under certain circumstances.
Swithing the softmod off and/or reverting to retail would of course workaround it, but that's not a solution. The fix is to use the real MS xboxdash.xbe for the open tray boot (instead of the krayzie 1.1[...] hacked version), as per the other Ndure installers!
Followup from Krazie
@Ndure Protagonist: I think I might understand what you're getting at. I guess xbl comunicates via xboxdash.xbe with parts of the xboxdashdata folder which is renamed so that might be causing the problems showing the friends list etc. And since xboxdash.xbe is hacked to locate another xboxdashdata folder there might be conflicts which I guess you guess are a potential risk of xbox
I think I will adjust the package to use the normal xboxdashdata path to fix the friends lists problem and eliminate the possible potential risk of getting banned.
Potential risk....Seems easily possible to me!
On top of that krazie has understood the problem and issued no warning. If I was krazie I would issue a big warning in red saying that you are at extreme high risk if you plan on using dual or tri boot with his softmod.....or recommend not using either at the moment until the problem is locked down.
Not to mention the on/off switch. What is the on/off switch? I'm really hoping it has nothing to do with xbl and on top of that wasn't implimented into 1.1. YOu mentioned that the on/off switch was now implimented in 1.1.1 update. Krazie, I'm really hoping that doesn't have anything to do with xbl safety because then i'll be really po'd. However if that is teh case then I guess I've figured out why I was banned! (was using 1.1 of the installer) and if the on/off switch has to do with disabling your mod with eject then that's dissapointing. However I'm probobly being paranoid and the on/off switch probobly has to do with uninstalling the softmod or something.
Fact is that there is a risk here and from what I understand an easy implimentation to fix that "small risk".This post has been edited by kgonepostl: Jul 17 2006, 05:06 PM
