I know that flashing the xbox360 drive is against terms of use but will I get caught if using this method? I really don't want to buy a $80 KV for a non-jtag xbox lol.

Doing anything that is against the terms of use can get you banned.
I'm not entirely sure the chances of getting caught though.

Whenever you mod there's always a chance of getting banned

why would you need a kv for a non jtag xbox? if you flash your xbox, yes, against the rules you will eventually get banned. doesn't matter how you do it.

Doesn't that unban it lol?
&I'm going to be honest with you idk anything about jtags or anything I'm trying to get one and if I get the money soon getting it through CA Viper a forum mod on GB and he's going to teach me all the stuff. I'm just curious the chance I'll get caught and will a KV unban the xbox so I can log back on live on the chance I do get banned. Also at any time can I unflash it?

You cannot unban a retail console with a KV. Jtags only.

lol yeah, that's why i asked why you needed a new kv. so let me bring this all together.

you don't need a kv
any type of modding will get you banned
flashing your xbox will get you banned eventually. once your flagged your screwed

No.

See my question was if I would get caught for violating one of the terms of use "system tampering" and "pirated copies of games". You on the other hand didn't tamper with the system you were just in someones modded lobby which is perfectly fine.

I wouldnt go too far with that though. If you're really worried, read the terms of use. I already know flashing your xbox is illegal I was just curious the odds of getting caught.

Eventually you will get caught..There are usually 2 ban waves a year which is when you will most likely get banned. To lower your chances do not play games early, and make sure they are verified before burning/playing them. Use lite touch, as Microsoft supposedly cannot detect it "yet". If you play many games then flashing it is a better option money wise as games cost $60 new and a whole console just costs $60, always good to have a retail unflashed one when you get banned so you can still play games you buy cheap or something.

And like others have stated a keyvault will just be a waste of money for you as they only work on jtags...

You can't inject a KV into a non-JTaged Xbox. To answer your question on getting banned for flashing, very slim as long as you keep up to date with software and make sure you don't play any games early.

Very low chance of getting banned.
