So, I've been through two Xbox 360 Cores in my life. When the first one RROD'd, I got a new one swapped out under warranty. A couple of years later, my second Core succumbed to the same fate and I ended up buying a PS3 ಠ_ಠ
After throwing away my Core, I couldn't bring myself to getting rid of my games. A friend of mine is looking to sell his 360 Elite and it's going at a really good price, so obviously I want to jump at the chance!
My problem is this:
I'm buying an Elite that I know he's had the firmware upgraded so that he could play pirated games. He's even been through the process of (unknowingly) installing an update - which returned the drive to stock - and then getting the drive replaced so that he could install cracked firmware again!
I'm looking to buy this Elite, but I'm also wanting to get back into Microsoft's good books, and go back to doing things the "legal" way. I can fully appreciate that I'll be buying a unit that's got a voided warranty, since the stock drive has been replaced. But is it possible to return this console back to stock so I can at least use Live services without being blacklisted?
Any advise would be much appreciated.
