    Need help, my partner has switched my Xbox on with the mod chip switched on and the Xbox was set to auto sign in for Live and it no longer connects. I get an error displaying unable to connect to Live and when I troubleshoot the connection it displays "Modified Xbox error" - any ideas or do I have to go and buy a new one :confused:

    Any positive help will be appreciated

    You have 4 options.

    1. Buy a new Xbox
    2. Buy and fit a new motherboard
    3. Swap Xbox / motherboard with someone else who will never go on Live
    4. Change the identity of your Xbox (using the link above)

    When you do get this fixed I suggest you do 2 things.

    1. Ensure Auto Sign In is switched off.
    2. Because that is not foolproof, I would strongly suggest you fit a 'push to make' switch. This means it is impossible to switch you Xbox on with chip enabled unless you mean to.

    Good luck.

    Watch out a new patch released last week detects modded hard drives even with the mod chip disabled!

    I've managed to get a new Eprom from my mates Xbox which will never go online as he has the old mod chip fitted which can't be disabled. I've ran an account recovery and I'm now back on live - for the moment....

    Thanks for all the reply's guys I guess we will just have to wait and see if this new patch detects the modded hard drives
