I'm thinkin about doing the modded name thing but I have a few questions. I'm not going all out just probably gonna switch it to a name or single word. No colors, buttons, or anything.

1. Can I get banned? What are the chances? If yea.. how long?

2. I play on GB and I can't play with a name different on my GB even though it will still be the same tag. Is there any way to turn it off/on? A friend said I can make 2 different profiles. My real GT profile and my modded GT profile. Just sign on the real one when I need to use that. Is that possible?

2a. If I can do that.. will they both have the same stuff? Say if I unlock some titles or levels on one. Will the other one be the same or different?

Thanks

1. Yes, of course you can get banned, but I highly doubt it. Im not sure how long.

2. You sign into your modded gamertag, which when you press xbox live it will say 'This profile is not allowed to play on Xbox live'. It'll then redirect you to a sign in screen and when you sign into your normal profile, your modded gt will be on it.

2a. Yes because your still on your original account.

1. the chance is very low. (Except u meet a IW/MS admin in ranked matches lol)
2. U just have to go back to main menu and the GT is normal.
2a. the other account is not live, and cant connect to live (i think). its like a new created account.:smile:

Alright sounds good. One last thing. What's the thing about everything getting reset and you have to change margins/brightness/controls everytime you play a game? Seems like it would get real annoying quick.

There is a way around it. In fact theres a tutorial on this forum on how to do it, you might have to look a little bit it's probably buried under spam.

to answer your first question yes. I got suspended for 2 weeks. Then after getting "unsuspended I tried to renew my gold subscription and it wouldn't let me. I called customer support and they said my accound is suspended indefinately for system tampering. haha. so be careful.

I hope this helps:

I modded my gamertag several times, you dont lose and titles, emblems, challenges ect. If you get banned from what i have heard it is up to 1 month. I have gotten banned on my previous xbox(console banned) for flashing my Hdrive and modding my gamertag(im pretty sure why i got CB'ed). But anyways if you are going to mod dont use Hex editers, they are hard to use, just stick with EzGt and Modio for easiest modding. But if you are mostly worried about getting banned you can download a console protector, which protects your ip adress and prevents you from getting banned, i havent got banned scince ive used it so i think its working.

Some peoples suspensions are longer because they have offensive or inappropriate gamertags. And if you planning to just add a single word (no colors or anything) you should be safe, because most people wont know your GT is even modded if it looks normal.
