Hello. I would like to know what I should do with the internet connection before modding my Xbox 360 to avoid the ban? I have a couple of questions, all of them refer to the already-modified console (excluding dual NAND case).

1) If I will log in to my Xbox live account without stealth server my console will be blocked after some time. Does the same apply to the Xbox/Microsoft account? Also, do those bans are permanent?

2) Should I disconnect console or account from the internet when I will be modifying it? Is there are any specific way of doing so? I heard that it's possible to connect to not official services after the modification. Any guides?

3) Will I have to set the Xbox to the factory settings to avoid complications?

In general, what steps should I take?
