Default xbox live on a modded xbox?

I heard that if you mod your xbox, xbox live doesn't work, is this true? And can anyone walk a noob through modding one? :0

I cannot walk you through modding an xbox but i can tell you this. Microsoft is trying to disallow all the people with modded xboxes to use the xbox live service. This is what I heard and it sounded legit from gamespot.com.

I found out, if you mod it, when you add the hard drive, you need to be able to turn it off for xbox live to work

It is possible to mod an XBOX and still play XBOX Live. There are mod chips available, which you can turn on and off when you want to go on Live.

Click here for a good Xbox Mod site.

From the information that I have read on various other forums is that if you are going to install a new harddrive in an Xbox do it before you join Live. The harddrive key is one of the items that is checked by Live. Also almost all 3rd generation and 4th generation mod chips can be turned off.
