  1. Dude, i’ve been down that road, you don’t want a modded 360. Don’t buy a back up, sell your modded 360, buy a new one and use that. I got banned from XBL from using modded 360’s with different firmware. Apparently it was a breach of the contract you sign when you sign up for XBL.

  2. Im pretty sure there similar. They can both play wave 3 backups (basically anything new). Here is a link to some info on ixtreme 1.6:

    Don’t listen to the other guy, not one person has been banned as of yet with ixtreme 1.51 or above due to backups not launching unless stealth is correctly patched and video partition matches either wave 1, 2 or 3.

    You can buy backups which will work on your format of console eg PAL= Europe and Australia or ones that are region free. Your firmware will play any backup at this point as it supports all 3 waves. E-mail me if you need help with it.
