I never thought it would come to this, but it appears not everyone is as awesome as I. I thought Coder worded his step by step tutorial on his post very well. However, some of us seem to be having problems. His thread can be found here (click me). In case you've been living under a rock, your modified xbox can now go online for free, pending on the server that is. First of all, this will not be about how to set it up, this is an FAQ topic. Q. - My Xbox loads up and sits on the boot screen. A. - This is either because the server is down, or the server is being overwhelmed with all the people. Q. - How do I get passed the boot screen when the server is down? A. - When you turn your console on, once you see the outer rings of the power button blink all at once, press the eject button. This will bypass your dashlaunch settings. Q. - What do I do with my KV.bin and CPUKey.bin? A. - You place these two files on the root of your hard drive. XBLS flashes the KV for you. Q. - Is there any way to tell, without posting on the thread, if the server is up/down? A. - A the moment, there is no really accurate tool. There was one released couple days ago but nobody knows the authenticity of the program. Q. - What can I do to prevent my retail Xbox from getting banned as well? A. - While there is no sure-fire way of fully preventing the Xbox from getting banned, just disconnect that Xbox from the network. Also, before and after you play online with your modified console, bring up your command prompt, and type "ipconfig /release" to release the current IP. Then type ipconfig /renew, to obtain a brand new IP address. (This is for windows. For Mac user's I'm sure it's along the same lines.) Q. - What all can we do online? Is there anything that's an instant ban? A. - Not exactly. You can play games like you would normally and your chances of getting banned are way less. However, if you plan to use your modified console for what's it made for, then your chances are much higher. Do NOT try and run homebrew. I heard there's an xex menu that is undeteced by Microsoft, but I don't trust the sources. I believe I covered everything that has been asked on the thread. If, God forbid, that I missed your question, please ask it. We don't like our members to be left unassisted. Also, if you find someone asking any of these questions, on any thread, please direct them here. It will save us cluster as well as time. Thank you! Big ole thanks to my senior minion, Bullet. :fish: King Awesome, out.
