    Ban wise, I believe gamesave modding is safer. Most of the time, gamesaves only affect the campaign mode of a game. Profile modding has more online content for you to mod. Therefore, gamesaves are the safest to mod in my opinion.

    He's talking about getting achievements, not modding a .svg or his profile. Gamesaves take longer and produce the same results a profile editor would. Profile editr is WAAYY faster, and you can add in time stamps to make it looks legit. I recommend profile editor because it is faster.

    I would say the gamesaving is safer, but profile editing is way faster. Both arn't 100% full proof, but just all the mechanics behind gamesaving would make it seem safer. And just a note, I'm basing this all off opinion so you don't have to listen to me if you don't want.

    Personally i'd use Profile Editing, as it is quicker, and as both are detectable anyway.

    No, all the achievements are unlocked at the same time with gamesaves.

    i really don't get why gamesaving is safer then profile edit since profile edit can add timestamps and gamesave don't.:?

    After 8/11 you'll have to stick to Gamesaving since you wont be able to use PE any longer.

    Gamesaving is alot safer because its actually unlocking the achievements. But both will get you reset anyways.

    Well profile editing does the exact same thing as game saving, just on a larger scale. Game saving also allows you to unlock the achievements while actually logged into xbox live, whereas profile editing unlocks them like they were offline. Also, game saving puts more of a difference in the achievement timestamps to something more believable. Microsoft might be able to tell if lets say 50 achievements were unlocked all within the time span of a few seconds (so to speak); while game saving puts actual time between achievements. If you were to unlock a single achievement using the profile editor as compared to a single achievement from a gamesave, there's no difference at all.

    Depends on the save set. Most save sets should include all achievements (and therefore you will need to find the saves that unlock your specific achievements). There are some that might only unlock 800/1000 for example, so you just need to look.
