If anyone is willing to help, please do so.

I have an x3, v1.6, and I haven't gone live yet cuz Im afraid to. I dont know everything about my mod so Im wondering a few things:

1-I can go Live by just running it from the MS dash while my tray is ejected, then Im assuming I can run whatever game is in my tray once Live is loaded (?). But am I able to get updates with a mod? If I try and get the autoupdate for H2 will they recognize my mod?

2-Is there anything I have to watch out for while Im on live. How can I make sure my chip isnt detected?

Thanks, anyone please help me!

Just lock your harddrive and disable the X3 (hold power button for about 4 seconds) then you can go on live..or at least I think that's right

Yep that's right, and the state of your DVD tray is irrelevant. (note that you can't run backed up games on LIVE)

for the ultra parrenoid people install all your apps and dashboards etc. onto the f or g drive. You can download the updates. Just do like DrKickflip said and make sure you disable the chip and you'll be right.

If you don't lock your hdd, the xbox will not boot up in disabled mode. It just gives you an error # 5. The only way to get in to the original dashboard/bios is with the hdd locked.

as long as you have your hard drive locked (your xbox wint boot otherwise) and you have your mod chip disabled, you should be fone.

Things have changed somewhat ladies and gents...

Microsoft are now performing all other manner or checks...

Even putting signals through ports on the mobo to see if there's any chip installed..

Also note once you connect to live the first time your xbox serial is recorded... if you changge hdd and connect again, im fairly sure you'll get you a$$ bann3d.

peace

Fairly sure this is true.
