    Did the XBox brick? I don't recall that, I just remember the furore about MS killing off the on line accounts of anyone who used a modded anything.

    Ah, seems I mis-remembered.

    The bricking was from an update. One of Microsofts updates bricked older Xboxes, which was "unintentional" apparently.

    Microsoft permaban the MAC address of your Xbox from Live if you're caught modding. Which doesn't stop you from just getting a new one and doing it again.
