RGH 1 Online?

Im planning on buying a Xbox 360 falcon that has a RGH 1, and is flashed with LT+3.0.
My question is do I have to pay for XBLSE on the rgh if I just want to go online with friends without modding like a RGH2 you can just push a button?

Yes you still have to pay. RGH1 vs RGH2 is just a difference in hardware used to do it; there is no difference in anything else to my knowledge.

Currently XBLSE is free, you would just need to pay for the KV’s.
