Banned Xbox 360s to get Potential Fix

Using free tools and information online one may get modded Xbox unbanned

Last month, Microsoft announced that once banned Xbox 360 consoles won't be usable again on Xbox LIVE. As per a few online reports, about one million 'modded' Xbox 360 consoles have been banned from Xbox LIVE service. That's a sizeable number and hence, console hackers have come out with a potential fix to 'un-ban' those modded consoles. This means, there's a chance to reconnect to Xbox LIVE with firmware 'hacks'.

Microsoft is banning all the modded consoles, the consoles that are hacked for playing pirated copies of official games from Xbox LIVE service. DailyTech posted details about the two fixes made public so far to "un-ban" the Xbox 360 console. First is to download the "hacked" iXtreme LT firmware that will bypass all security checks performed by Microsoft when the console is connected online to Xbox LIVE.

So, this custom firmware will make the original firmware of banned Xbox 360 console appear as a legit firmware and continue playing pirated game discs. This firmware is still in the developmental stage.

There's another fix which involves bit of hard work along with variety of free tools, and other non-banned Xbox 360 console. Xbox Scene forum user k0mpresd has posted the method to un-ban the modded Xbox 360 console at the forum. This tutorial looks simple but has several pre-requisites to be met in order to revive the console for Xbox LIVE.

Microsoft may adopt as many restrictions to ban the modded Xbox 360 consoles, but the workarounds would be found come what may. Just like Apple continues to play the cat and mouse game with iPhone OS hackers, Microsoft will begin to do the same with Xbox 360 owners. Xbox 360 owners who are disgruntled with Red Ring of Death (hardware failure) and Xbox LIVE are slowly moving towards using modded consoles.

Very true,  but I guarantee that 99.9999% of banned users do not have their KV.  If the console was banned as of recent,  after summer update,  there is no way to get KV,  and no way to jtag.  Advanced hackers knew a nand swap would work,  but if you dont have your KV pre summer update. your're not getting anywhere.
