Please just shut up already. Your acting like all your "ways to prevent a ban" posts are the golden rules to prevent you from getting banned when in fact thats not the case now, before or ever.
Deal with these simple FACTS
People that have never verified discs are getting banned.
People that have always verified discs are getting banned.
Different firmwares are getting banned.
Different DVD Drives are getting banned.
None of use know the root cause to the banning.
I also love how people a.ssume MS doesn't and never will have a way of seeing if people have modded consoles or not, as if some guys who made ABGX and firmware flashing in their mothers' basements have much better systems than the billion dollar company Microsoft.
People are just stubborn and don't ever want to think that getting banned is a possibility.
Like seriously, c'mon guys, you think Microsoft of all people are completely lost and oblivious when it comes to this modding community that's COMPLETELY out in the open on the net? You think they somehow have no way of seeing the same websites you see with tutorials and programs for flashing and modding s**t? You think they can't sign up on Xbox 360 ISO for free and see everything you see? You think they can't flash their own consoles to find out some way of detecting all this s**t?
