    Xbox 360 permement xbl ban, your console, not your account. So you can make as many accounts as you like and still be banned.

    No, there are plenty of people using flashed drives right now that aren't banned

    If you get banned, then you'll be screwed, but there's a pretty slim chance you'll get banned

    Then what's the point of your Elite? It will sit there while you play burnt games on your 'crapbox':thumbdown:

    just flash it and be done with it... defiantly worth it, and the new system doesn't detect 1.4 at all.

    This is what we get into to when we modify your console, face the consequences of modding your 360 and getting banned.

    Don't whine, when you flash your 360 you are taking that risk. That is like a week old, the ban waves are over dude.

    did it end?

    While there is a chance of being banned with ixtreme 1.4 and personally checking games the risk your taking is lowered, but having a second box if you really worried about being banned isnt a bad idea because it is always possible to be banned no matter how unlikely.
