My dashboard is running the latest kinect if im not mistaken. Now I cant play Fifa 12. it has to be updated and it says like this :

An update must be applied to your console to play this game, if you decline this update, you wont able to play this game.

Yes
No

Should i just go for yes? I dont want to risk the yess without knowing the consequences. What should i do?

Microsoft has a new disk format for new ganes - xgd3.
The update will flash your dvd drive to the new stock firmware
to allow your 360 to run original xgd3 format games.
Also you need to have same brand of drive that your 360 came
With in the 360 when you do the update or the update will
Fail.

You will not be able to run backups after the update until you flash
Your dvd drive with lt 2.0 firmware.
The lt 2.0 is out for fat 360's expected to be out for slims soon.

Does that mean I cant play new games for the time being?

Is there anything i can do to make the new games playable?

Assuming that you're not on the latest dashboard version, what you need to do is this: -

1. Flash your 360 back to stock firmware
2. Update the dashboard to the latest version
3. Flash your 360 with the latest LT+ version available for your drive (hopefully, that's LT+ 2.0)

Then you can play backups of any games, at least until the next dashboard update comes out which is rumoured to be in the middle of November.

So your first step is to look in the settings on your console to see what dashboard version it's on. If it's not on 2.0.13599.0 then you need to do steps 1-3 that I listed above, or pay/get someone else to do it for you.

mickaiel have you ever had your dvd drive flashed in the 360 so it can read copied games that you have burnt that is what flashing is for,as you have posted in the 360 hacking section & your comment in your 2nd reply suggests you haven't otherwise you'd know what a flash was

My dash is currently running on 2.0.12625.0 so i have to do all three steps you listed above. The thing is i have no idea how to do any 3 of the things above. Could help me how to do step by step? I would appreciate if you help me.

Like i said, i have no idea what flash is and I know nothing about Xbox. All i know is start and play, thats it. I never burnt any games cause there are tons of shop that sell pirated games.

When you update the dashboard, it also updates the AP2.5 data table. AC: Brotherhood and Black Ops are both AP2.5 games so that's why they won't play. You need to rip the games to an ISO, patch them with abgx360, then re-burn them. Chances are you've flagged your 360 already just by trying to play them though (check with XVal 2.0).

How is Step# 3 done?i burned NBA 2k12 (which i believe is an XGD3) then when i tried it on my MODDED console, it prompted for an update, so i updated with the latest dashboard (thinking that it was the update i need). After that my console can't play copy games anymore, including the ones I use before. Can this still be fixed? Please help.

you can update yourself. but you sound like you can't flash, like me and have to get someone to do it for you. basically you update and all your back up games wont work ever again untill you pay someone to flash your drive. then you have to rip all your back ups to your pc and run them thru agbx again and they will work on ya new flashed drive. ( well i do believe coz im in the same boat as you, but know a bit more to be fair.) if you dont know about agbx and how to burn/rip and in the past patch then you need to do a lot of reading up before even contemplating flashing

There are plenty of tutorials, but your best bet is to google jungleflasher.pdf and read through it thoroughly. If you're still having problems, there are plenty of threads here on AD to help you out.
