Submission + - Microsoft starts banning modified 360 consoles.

Tiger Nachos writes: Microsoft has started to ban XBOX 360 consoles with modified drive firmware. Posts on the official XBOX.com site confirm the bans. It appears that there are some glitches, as some users with modified firmware claim not to be banned, and other users with unmodified systems also claim to be banned. Like the original wave of bans on the original XBOX console, Microsoft only appears to be banning the modified system, and not the user account. Moving the user account to an unmodified system allows users to continue playing online over the Xbox LIVE service. http://gamerscoreblog.com/team/archive/2007/05/17/ 545414.aspx and http://www.xbox-scene.com/xbox1data/sep/EEZAuFAEuA jENKDCMV.php discuss the ban.

Computer programmers do it byte by byte.
