If you haven't done so already, you should check out bungie.net and read up on the halo2 update it will ban all modded xboxs from playing matchmaking if your not careful. Contact site admistrators if they are online. Everyone be careful!!! don't download the update untill you know whats going on and if we can get past it.

Well,

You can get banned permanantly from XBLive, going on with a modded xbox and they detect it. They are heavily focusing right now on Halo 2. So good information for the new guys to know, but there has always been that chance of getting banned with a modded xbox.

Correct.

You can get banned now just by having hacked Halo files.

I posted the complete story, along with the questions and answers.

They are probably just getting jiggy with md5 checksums. Easiest way.

Or, if people don't understand what checksum comparisons are, think of it like this:

x = the Official Halo 2 files
y = the Hacked Halo 2 files.

If x does not equal y, then you are automatically updated. That'd be the most logical way to do it.


(Yes, yes, I know that the entire files aren't actually compared, but let's keep it simple for people who aren't big on jargon)

I just soft modded a friend's xbox and logged onto live with it in the MS Dash, then updated it, and then still was able to play in matchmaking. I wasnt banned. looks like i got passed it. This was only tested with a soft modded xbox with no hacked halo 2 content on my hard drive.

Well, from what I understand that is what they are looking for. The H2 hacks.

They arent out to catch Modded Xbox's

They are out to catch the people who Mod in Halo 2.

So if your friend and you havent modded Halo 2 on Live yet then no, they wont catch you.

And if they do, you only get banned from Matchmaking, you can still play custom games as much as you want.

ok- from what i found out-
They in NO WAY changed the encryption, it still run's the same as the new update, so that is good. What the update dose is checks for Hacked stuff is by running commands throuh the xbox memory (i think the X , Y, & Z drives) for any pre-loaded trainers/ACtion replay cheats- if any are loaded, the system takes time to notify the XB live servers when you log in- then takes the liberty of dumping your account (AKA good bye LivE)
Also- if anyone else know's ANYTHING abouut the lvl file patch's included with the new maps and there encryption- please tell me!!! i know alot about them, but im not sure if i know everything
