• ALL Banned XBOX's Suddenly Unbanned!!!

    Pull all those banned consoles out from under your bed or from in your closet, because Microsoft just made one of the biggest mistakes they have ever done!

    Earlier this morning, on April 26th, Microsoft unbanned every single console that has ever been banned from Xbox Live. It is uncertain if Microsoft has a backup of all the banned consoles but as for now, there are no signs of the consoles being rebanned. With the unbanning of all the KV's this means all your Jtags will be unbanned as well, however booting them will still result in a near instant ban!

    It would be clever if Microsoft did this to inspire the people deprived of PS3 to reuse the server, however this seems more like a human error. Regardless of the situation, someone is going to be in a lot of trouble for this one!

    In order to do this you are going to need to take your banned console and plug it into live, then you are going to have to manually update your dash using this file http://www.fortresscrafts.com/systemupdate.zip Simply put that on the root of a USB stick and reboot the console, it should automatically start installing the update.

    The zip file is hit and miss, maybe register, if not use the update that came with Portal 2 or google for that dash.

    You need dash number: 12625




    P.S. I realize this isn't a DEAL but it might save a lot of people money if they don't have to buy a new box/suddenly now have a working second. Also, I don't condone any behavior that got them banned in the first place, so don't do it again!

      These bans were stored in M$ database. Even if the table that the data was stored in got deleted, you guys really think that M$ didnt have a database backup?

      Its just a matter of restoring a backup and the bans are back. Dont get your hopes up.

      I read a rumor that there is an update coming that resets your firmware back to factory default. Anyone know anything about this?

      All boxes that were banned were unbanned for about 2 days, mostly everyone has said the bans are back.

      Hmm, anything being done about this or is this the end of playing games from burned media? Also will it just effect newer games coming out or will older games that were fully stealth patched and live confirmed also become a ban alert.

      I guess it happened again, unbanned once again.
