    I just recently found out i could flash my xbox ...so i did a bunch of research and flashed my benq and a friends lite on


    but im curious, what are the drawbacks?

    I have never brought my xbox online for anything since i bought it 2 years ago

    for someone like me that never even goes online are there any drawbacks?

    and lets say i did go online for some reason and did happen to get caught somehow. what happens?

    If you got caught, your console would be banned from XboxLive

    Other than that there really aren't any drawbacks. If you have the correct firmware and check your games properly with ABGX, you won't get banned.

    I just started browsing the ABGX site but What does Stealth passed acctually mean? and if there any good guides or anything explaining this?

    EDIT!!::

    rofl

    "Very easy to use.
    Runs natively on practically any operating system.
    All the info you could want is contained in the GUI.
    If you still need a tutorial or you plan to write one, you're an idiot.
    Enjoy and thanks to everyone involved! You know who you are!"


    never mind im sure ill figure it out =D

    That is a picture of what the output from ABGX looks like

    The program checks the game file (.iso) to ensure it's safe to play online. A stealth check means that the game is properly 'stealthed' so that you can play it without worrying about being banned.

    This may help you
