Hey everyone, new to the forum and was wondering if anyone could shed some light to my situation.
Been doing xbox repairs for a while and have accumulated a few spare parts.
Last week my xbox gave me the good old RROD. TRy as I might, cant get it running again so its joining the junk pile.
Cant afford a new one at the moment so looked towards the pile of bits i have. Only system i'v got to work is a 2008 elite, but DVD drive is goosed. Tried changing the laser for a spare I had but no joy and I cant afford to buy a replacement.
So I pulled the drive from my recently deceased consol and just plugged it in so i could get some gaming. Connected to live, without any hdd and did a connection test to get the latest system updates. So now i have a console atleast, until I can buy a new one in January.
Now I've explained that here is my question(s)
I'm assuming that as long as I don't connect to live and sign in (wont be connected to the router) neither the console or my gamer tag will be banned.
My plan is to buy a slim in a couple of months and transfer my old hhd to the new console. Am I totally safe from getting my new console banned and will the gamer points i achieve while offline be transfered to my new console?
Thanks in advance for any help
