Hello,

I would like to know if in 2021 there are still risks of account/console bans for RGH or JTAG that would be linked to Xbox Live. Around me I was informed that today Microsoft no longer had the necessary tools to control these machines, because of the new generation consoles.

Is it true ? Or is the risk still present?

The risk is 100% still there.
Microsoft’s servers still have a challenge system which detects modded consoles.. the risk has lowered significantly as many stealth servers have really fine-tuned the challenge responses over the years (KV files can last months to years now, opposed to days or week back in 2014-2015.)
Account suspensions can also be banned due to serious modding/reports against the account. I would and always will suggest not using your main account on a modified console. Always use a burner account.

In case i would like to get lost DLCs (like the Forza Horizon 1 ones) to do achievements for my main account, can I get banned just for using a "cracked" game?

I do not condone piracy.
However, Xbox live doesn’t seem to really care if a game is “signed” - as flashed disc drive consoles have been around for ages with very little ban rates.
There is always a risk with bringing an account online and cheating with it that it may be punished. It’s hard to really give a definite answer, as everyone has always told me never to use my main account but my burners instead.
