Like anyone ever disables their modchips ever!

Sure. Take care though. Even with the modchip off, without enough research as to what you have installed onto C:/ and E:/ you will almost certainly be banned the instant you go on live.

Erm..the EEPROM perhaps? The software that runs on the xbox to lock hard drives usually sets the password by reading the HDD key from the EEPROM and using it to lock the drive. Some tools also set a secondary master password to "TEAMASSEMBLY" just in case your xbox breaks and you do not know your EEPROM HDD key.
