    You have installed a HD with EVOX software on it. Just thinking of adding the HD to my Xbox and the guy thought that could happen.

    Hi there,

    I may be wrong and I've yet to try it but I've heard that they can now scan you're hard drive and if its not the original, then they will ban you permanently.

    Ahh crap, Can anyone confirm/deny this please. I was not told they did a hardware GUID scan more the fact it could determine that the Evox s/w should not be there.

    "they can now".....
    not at all, they just cant one minute, and the next minute they can :lesson:
    how would any one be able to upload and execute such a program to your xbox via the internet
    microsoft never introduced this and even if they did the point of evox and other dashboards was to eliminate all these holds that microsoft had against you (copied games etc)

    Solar are you saying then that it's completely safe to run a 120gb HD with evox on it on LIVE?

    Right now it is yes - the only thing MS "scan for" is an unsigned bios. How long that will be the case for however is another question altogether...

    And the minute they start scanning MY hard-drive, i shall be suing them, it is my MY XBox, they have no right to terminate service for having a modified console unless you are using a hacked bios on the service(read the terms and conditions of xbox live). MS aren't stupid and know that if they start scanning drives, thery would be breaking anti-trust laws, and perhaps even human rights laws.

    I have modded my xbox and play on LIVE. Just disable the mod chips BIOS so that the XBOX is using its own BIOS and all is dandy. I have played on LIVE now for awhile now and have had no problems or issues. Just remember to disable the mod when ever you shove an RJ45 in the back.
