Just came back from a registration place in Guandu, after they checked they told me i couldnt registrate there because no way in their system to registrate in english... Maybe i should just let it go. My first scooter i registrated in 2007 near Dianchi Lu and there it wasnt a problem. Tomorrow i will check out the place, they guys mentioned today. After that, i have a registrated scooter or not. ;)

Forums > Living in Kunming > Xbox Live in China

I never had a problem using xboxlive without VPN-connection and also could play copied games on xboxlive, as long as i did make sure not to update (only if there is a custom firmware for the actual dashboard update) and also check that the copy is agbx-verified. (abgx360.net/)

But also note that the Xbox is not on the market in China, so isnt XboxLive. Thats the reason why you only can buy a japanese Xbox in China.

However, if you play only original games (offline and online) you can use xboxlive without fear. Please note that the box will log games that you play offline also! (means you can get flagged and later if you go online you get banned).

Nice little tool to check if your box is already flagged: blog.planetb.de/[...]

There was no problem to use xbox with flashed DVD-Drive on xboxlive, until now!!! (But i think its just a matter of time and the scene guys will come with a solution)

Do Not Go Online – Console will be flagged for ban

Ok, i'm sorry for being a little late on this but this is VERY important. It seems that microsoft released a silent update on the 16th of November and that update is flagging people's consoles. This applies to every console, even if you dont play XGD3 games, this new update is NOT good for your console. IT IS NOT SAFE TO GO ONLINE NOW.

You are not going to be informed about this update. It is done automatically without your knowledge.

Note: If you logged in to xbox live today and now cant play XGD3 games anymore ( getting a disc unsupported message). Your console has been flagged for a future ban.

Stay away from xbox live. Dont play ANY game Online on your console. Wait for further news. I'll keep on searching and will update this post as soon as possible.

EDIT 1 :

Another note. This whole scenerio only applies to people who play games on xbox live or use xbox live in one way or the other. If you never log in to Xlive and will never do so in the foreseeable future, you aren't affected by this update for now.

(Although there is a possibility that future XGD3 games may contain this update. In which case your XGD3 backups can be affected.)

EDIT 2 :

Some of you are still wondering what has happened, so i'll just summarize everything.

What is happening?
On the 16 of november, microsoft released a silent online update for xbox 360 consoles. This update, updates a thing called dae.bin in your console. Dae.bin is a file on your console's hard drive that compiles all anti piracy checks i.e it checks whether your console is using downloaded games ( put extremely simply).

What will happen if you go online?
If you go online, your dae.bin file is going to be updated and your console will be flagged for a future ban.

Why are some of my games working and others not working?
Previously, every console had a single or general dae.bin file. There was only 1 file for every xbox 360 console that checked for piracy. Now, after this update, every console has a different dae.bin file. So every console will react in a different way. For some modern warfare 3 wont work, for others battlefield 3 wont etc etc. This combination will be different for every console.

I didn't log in to xbox live in the last XXX days, What can i do?
STAY OFFLINE. Dont log in to xbox LIVE to do anything. Keep your console offline only until some solution is found.

I logged into xbox live and now some games dont work, What can i do?
Your console has been flagged for a ban, you cant do much now. Just stay offline and wait.......

After i bought a used xbox, with already flashed DVD-Drive but didnt know which flash-version was on... i dived into the world of flashing consoles... very time consuming. And now, i dont have really time to play all the games. ;)

@tigertiger: he doesnt recommend Wii, the reason here:

wii is not good for now. xbox has kinect and good games.
ps3 has good games and BD player and PS move.
wii has wii remote,we can do the same thing with kinect and
PS move,even better, kinect is best of them.
and we can`t play copy games on wii like xbox,we have to copy game in a hard-drive.and the worse thing is we need to change the firmware all the times for new games and the olds...
so wii is not a good choice for now.

@laotou: The brain-numbing you mentioned is half true, because you always can choose which games and when/how long your kids can play them. ;) Also there are games who train the brain. But your right, just playing/TV is not good.

@tigertiger: I will ask him and get back to you.

It does matter, but if you need help let me know.
I know a little shop on jinbi/beijing lu and the owner saved my xbox360 from becoming a DVD-Player. Very helpful, also he sell phones, ps3 and games. Except of the games (he also have originals) all his products are original.
Was searching long time, because i did not want drive to 121street everytime. Also the games for xbox360 at his shop are 3 RMB/each and on 121street 4 RMB/each, hehe. Still cheap... i know.

let me know via pm.

bye

We have family visiting us in Kunming and today for today we planned to make the bus-tour... surprise, surprise no bus there. After calling them, they told us now Tour today because the bus is broken. So, that means they just operate with one bus? I guess it was just a poor excuse for bad business (no visitors...).

We just went with the Metro... fast, reliable and cheap.

Maximum respect for keeping it real and not selling out yourself! The shadowside is, that it's hard to make money this way...
Keep it up mate, we hear you!!!
