My English is not very well, sorry about that, but I think you get my point.
I think it's a good idea monitoring the TSOP chip (Dashboard or other programmable chips) for datachanges after the next Live! update. Why? Because when M$ found a way detecting modded consoles and going to detect them, they could set a flag into those chip(s). This way they can ban/collect consoles on the next live connection (even when the console is unmodded before connecting to live).
So if there are people capable simply monitoring there chip(s), please inform us. Do some tests after the next update... see what happends (hopefully nothing
