Microsoft Begins Banning Homebrew XBox 360s from LIVE
The inevitable has happened according to a multi-page thread on XBox-Scene (linked above), it appears Microsoft is now beginning to ban homebrew XBox 360 consoles running freeBOOT or XBReboot from XBox LIVE.
To quote from -DeToX-: "Well.. it seems new bans have been handed out, just now.
I just have over 7 people with XBR/FreeBOOT consoles report to me that they have been banned, and I as well have. However, anyone who played hacked games with these people remain untouched.
I was playing MW2, when I was disconnected from live. I went back to dash, and I was able to sign back in. Restarted, and I could still sign in at the dash. I turned it off.. Waited 5 minutes. Tried to sign in, console ban..
Good job Microsoft, bout time you disallowed this to be on Xbox Live."
If they can detect a modded drive by several complex reading operations in dvd, why they not detect a xex modified in system?
it's easier then detect a dvd mod, they can check by md5 or any other hash.. or they can check the CB and test if this console is a retail or dev console.
Really, i never thought MS cannot detecta Xell moded console. Do you really believe in Santa?
that is why i sold my xbrick, first of all we have to pay yearly so they should allow true gamers to do as they please, they made their money already, what's the point hb 360's can get online at "other" sites it makes no differance screw ms i dis like the 360 untill it was replaced 4 times!
