^ no problems cause im not the one being banned here hey (and yes i'm speaking in general, not just to you)
but if there was a disagreement with someone say Arakon who was actually involved in the testing with secdata.bin don't you think he would have shot me down by now ?? disagree however much you want because I really could give 2 $#!ts honestly
random2k your almost right - hey, at least you did some readin'
So, regardless of online or offline so long as you put a a poorly ripped(non stealthed) burned game disk in drive. It will be logged to the secdata.bin on your hard drive? Then sent to MS and down road, that is why people have/will/are being banned. (I get this, MS cant detect firmware just poorly burned games)
Yes correct except secdata.bin is stored in the NAND of the Xbox 360
I was under impression 1.4 firmware was suppose to protect the newbies from playing poorly stealthed games. That would then keep your secdata.bin log clean since the firmware itself stopped you from being dumb.
It won't keep it clean...if it happens to play a bad game (as in the firmware allows it) it's logged and if you have had a previous bad game from the use of old firmware that still exists in the log, however a note here is that as I said before not EVERYTHING is known about what exactly is and isn't logged in secdata.bin but also things like for example e66 are logged..."doggy stuff"
secdata.bin, anyway we can stop/delete/ it? (maybe takeout HD? use a memory card when playing burned games offline?)
what I said before...the theory I had way long time ago was that if you cleared it (every time) you should be fine however this isn't easily done and isn't dooable for alot of people AND I don't know how M$ are using these logs (read up a bit) so that may be useless
What guide or tool or tools should we all use to recheck all my games to see if any where not stealthed right? (so far i am not banned. I don't usually play my burned games on live. I actually buy my live games (halo3/cod4)(only 2 i play online) But since the secdata.bin can screw you i am a bit worried about a ban down the road. maybe)
mulleter (which i'm only suggesting cause I know "people" don't like my suggestion of abgx since it's "geared towards pirates" but IMHO abgx is the new and improved mulleter...way better in every aspect anywhoo)
How can I recheck my games (I got all the isos ive burned) Anyone have a newbie guide on how to check your games so your secdata.bin wont log/then report your ass.
as above...making sure (if your going to use abgx) that it's set up properly (Arakon i'm not trying to give the wrong impression or any suggestions towards pirating or piracy, this tool can be used legitamentally same with mulleter)
I used random things to check but i figured it wasn't THAT important since i THOUGHT 1.4 stopped nonstealths from running lol anyhooo i hope my elite wont get banned LOL we shall see...
Yeaaah but as I said, it's not just that, secdata.bin
Maybe its time for 1.5 firmware that rejects non stealthed games or something because a lot of people who don't know better will be banned lol.
Just want to make this clear to everyone not just you
THERE is NO problem with the current firmware and the detection method/s have been the same as always (well since 4532 when secdata.bin was incorporated into the kernal hehe, sneaky sneaky)
remember...if you disagree...I don't care
