First you'll need to get iXtreme LT, which'll attempt to return your console to a playable state. The catch is that you need to know your CPU code and that the instructions rely on a lot of different (free) tools.

The problem with this, though, is that you need a working, unbanned console, and when you're done you can't run both consoles online at the same time.

Kind of limits the fix, unless you know someone who never uses Live. #bannedxboxworkaround
