On the Dreamcast it was all software, not even a jailbreak, just some code on the pirated game. It left no traces, you could boot a legit disc and connect to SegaNet, try doing that with LIVE and not get banned.

Right now pirating on a X360, either with LT, RGH or JTAG takes so much work the vast majority of users don't bother to even try, but if it was like the Dreamcast you would have a totally different situation.




IIRC, I had my import DC chipped, but shortly after, the Utopia disc came out but by that time, I had lost interest in gaming for several years.
