I'll be picking up a brand new XBOX 360 Go Pro! Bundle this Saturday from Toys R Us - not sure it if it will have Hitachi, BenQ or TS drive. Anyhow, I'll be flashing it to the latest iXtreme Firmware.
Before I flash it, I'll setup my Silver Live Account, download any updates and all so it's all set.
After that I plan on unplugging the network cable, keeping it unplugged and flashing to latest iXtreme so I can play my backups.
Is it best to just leave the Network Cable unplugged for now, until we have a better/updated firmware?
I don't play on Live, don't even have Gold - I only use my free Silver Live account for keeping achievements and downloading trailers and all. I had a 360 flashed to iXtreme1.4 that got banned on Christmas. I don't want to get my 2nd console banned, so just trying to be cautious.
Also, can I still use my old Gamertag? From what I understand, the console is banned, not the Gamertag, right?
