    I just had a thought a few moments ago. I was wondering if it would be possible to get some kind of splitter cable so that you could have two dvd drives for your 360. One flashed for offline use and then you could switch off the flashed one and switch on the stock drive for online use. I know you would have to change the drive key or w/e its called so they are the same.

    Does anyone think this is possible , or have a better idea?

    Not exactly, if he made an offline account not connected to xbox live it wouldn't send any information.

    dosnt matter if its gold or silver as soon as any game gets put in the dvd rom an it reads the start of the disc to see if its a back up or original.the custom fw that you put on your systems is to prevent m$ counter measures like the disc jutter.
    any system that gets flagged gets an id ban which dosnt lock you drive from xbl it bans the console id so it wouldnt matter if you use a splitter or not the console id never changes so they would have you as soon as you play your first bad stealthed game,also if the fw is below 1.4

    I think what the guy means is, he has one xbox, two drives, and when he wants to play modded games he just hits a switch 2 use one drive (signs out his xbox live gamertag + d/c ethernet cable, signs into a profile with no xbox live whtso ever) then just plays modded games normally, then once he gets in the mood to play sum halo 3 online, he changes the disk drive, plugs ethernet cable in, signs into xbox live gamertag and commences to play

    Sorry for the wall of text

    Thanks for the reply's. I guess i wont risk trying it since there's not a definitive answer as to whether ill be banned or not , and i really cant afford another 360 if mine gets banned.

    I don't have live anymore , my account is silver now and i don't buy games anymore i get them from a friend that gives them to me after he beats them. I've also sold everything but my computer (which i doubt i would get much of anything for it its a 12 year old stock dell) , my 360 , my 20" tv , and couch.

    does anyone want to donate an rrod box to the minichimp is broke foundation? lol
