    Can't they tell if your 360 is flashed? Why aren't they doing anything about flashed 360s?

    Just think of the large number of users that have modded xbox 360s and have a annual subscription to xbox live. They roll in the money that way. :wink:

    People get banned in waves once or twice a year. thats just one of the risks you take when you mod your console.

    I believe the ban is on the xbox and not the GT so yes if you recover it on another xbox then yes it should work.

    Huh, so then people whom have been banned for Tampering or using Hacked/Manipulated Files, or have had themselves reported for things unsaid and received Perm bans can still get on another console?

    Does this work for Perm bans in games? Like Halo 3 XP ban for example.

    Its still flashed, I'm sure they have a way to tell if your playing ripped games or not, so I'm guessing they bust the people whom haven't touched an unburnt game in years.
