    Hello Everyone, Hope all is well.

    It's been a long time from gamesaving. I haven't done this in years, but it's coming back to me. I have the current black xbox 360 that I purchased about 5 months ago (to replace the really old white model) and I've done a couple of saves. But my question is, I've recently updated this to the most resent MS software, I was on XLive playing COD is why, and I've pushed this to the latest about a week ago.

    Do saves still work?
    Is there chances of getting banned with an updated console?
    or is it not possible anymore being the firmware is flashed/upgraded?

    I know in the "oldendays" if your console's firmware was pushed to the latest/greatest then it wouldn't allow gamesaves. Maybe these issues have been resolved.

    Anyway, glad to be back, and I'll contribute too. I use to gamesave when the site was 360gamesaves.com...shows how long ago I've done this. Ha!

    Take care

    Their's always a chance of a BAN off XBL when it comes to modding it's the RISK the MODDER take's when they enter it. but i say game save's r a very small % chance of a BAN but it's BEST to ASK around just to be SAFE.

    Saves will still work on your updated console all you do is resign them to your IDs as for getting banned there is a very low chance depending what saves you use.

    ah yes 360gs was the first site i ever joined and i think your talking about when you needed a old dashboard to be-able to gamesave

    cool, thanks guys, yup, the old blade dashboard. People were paying good money on ebay for those "never touched Xbox live network" cause it was the only way to gamesave. I know a lot of people feel it's cheating but what I do is beat the game, then use a gamesave to get the rest of the pointless achievments like "all the gold in a game" or "collect every container" stupid things. I guess it's cheating...oh well lol

    All modding no matter what it is has some risk of bans.

    Gamesave modding is minimal because you have to use your ID and console ID, so it can be 'yours'. Gamesave modding depends more if you use it online or not.

    Ah I see, so like an online game that gets online achievements might be more of a risk. What's your feelings on "load and pop" saves. and if they are in order or not. I was reading somewhere that MS watches for gamesaves that are not in order for a game and if they were all popped at once vs over a month span or something. If MS really watches that closely to someone's saves then they must employee a ton of people that just monitor xbox profiles.

    By online or offline, i mean if you are using it in public matches.. like cod4 used to have USB mods with a gamesave, thats what i mean.

    Load and pop saves are fine as long as you space them out. Whenever I use load and pop saves they are broken into pieces, so for each save game you load, you get 60-100 gamerscore or whatever. the instant 1000G saves are riskier. Then again, it would be like adding a 1000GS GPD to your account, but I only do those if they are all unlocked offline, no online GS to make it less suspicious.

    And believe me, they dont normally look at your GS unless you magically go from 5000 to 50000 in a day. If you are going to be gamerscore modding, you need to do offline games, unless you want to timestamp each achievement.

    Honestly, if you were going to do do some GS modding, what I would do is use ultimate starter saves, so you have max everything, but play through the game normally and earn achievements normally, then mod the ones left with correct timestamps.
