I'm an innocent victim of region encoding (honest) having moved from the UK to the US and upgraded my 360 in the process. Now I can't play my legit UK games for region encoding issues. I've been googling for a few hours, and I think I'm screwed but I'm not sure. Can anyone help answer the following?
1. What causes an XBox to get banned from live? JTAG, changing the region encoding on the drive, or playing copied games? I'm keen on using Live, so don't want to risk this too much.
2. Do the flash hacks for region encoding work on a non-JTAG'd box? I have no intention of physically mod'ing anything.
3. Is there any hack that will allow both US and UK games to be played without continuously flashing back and forth?
It just seems crap that I have a library of games that I can't play just because I moved a few thousand miles.
I wonder why MS couldn't operate a service by which you send in your old out-of-region games and get sent legit, modified, MS-authorized copies back for a small fee....
