    even if you update theres still going to be 6 more so you might as well just wait for LT+2.0 or a workaround for it

    how true it is i dont know, but i heard if you use xbl, update is auto and it reverts drive to stock. so as b1gh3ad says just wait for new F/w. i think waiting a while is better than a trashed drive and ban.

    I didn't apply the dashboard update just a little bummed that it became available on the 18th @ 9 p.m. Hopefully this will all get sorted out within the next couple weeks :)

    There was a deal a week or so ago that if you created a new XBL account, you could get one month for 1$ (up to five months). I created one just so I could test and see if the new dash will ban flashed consoles.

    If the update rolls out today, I will sign on to XBL with my newly created ID and I will update a flahsed xbox (an older xenon that I dont really care about). I will report my finding to this forum and others as soon as I find everything out.

    If the update does come out today, I will have to wait until I get home from work to apply it. I will have this done around 7pm EST.

    Good luck to everyone!

    If you do update and it flashes your console, can you try re-flashing it and see if you can 1. Still go on xbox live with the new update and re-flashed firmware, and 2. If you can play your back-ups with the re-flashed firmware with the new update.

    Of course. The drive is an MS28 so when I supply this info, DO NOT assume you can do the same thing with Liteon/BenQ drives. If the Console is not banned after the update, I may try a second console with an older Hitachi drive.

    I realize 1 person and 2 consoles is a VERY small sample size, but I am sure there are many people out there who would love even a sliver of information on this issue.

    2 hours til quittin' time! ;D

    Probably the same for drive where we lost the DVD key, huh?

    Such a shame, I have 2 DVD players that I would love to get to work again.

    The update got a friends Xbox. It had a Benq that I flashed with LT+ 1.1. I still had his original firmware. So I reflashed it with LT+ 1.1 and he's back to playing back ups and staying off live for a little while.

    I have 2 systems I'm testing right now for this event. One is a Samsung and the other is a Hitachi. Both have the latest firmware available for each corresponding drive. I am on the West Coast of the U.S. On the Samsung, I'm being prompted to update. When I switch my hard drive out to the Hitachi, it does not require an update and I am capable of playing as normal, as it is not prompting to update to latest dashboard.

    The Hitachi is a 79 revision firmware.

    Just thought some of you might have the same luck....attempt to log in...if you're prompted to update, choose no...if you're not prompted to update, then welcome back to Xbox Live...at least, for now.
