Hi all, After a few hours of searching I thought I might as well just ask: I have an Xbox 360 arcade with a Benq VAD6038 drive with dashboard 2.0.12611.0. My drive has been modded (dont know which firmware) and I have played copied games on it. However, since the mod (years ago) my Xbox 360 has never ever been online. Apparently I need to upgrade my dashboard because new (legal store versions) games simply won't play. I want to install the latest dashboard and restore the flashed firmware back to stock, so that I can go online with new games (basically have a legal 360 again, without having the risk of getting banned). I read that updating to 2.0.13146.0 or later will restore the original firmware for my drive. Since Im still running an old dashboard version I am thinking this is an easy solution. Code: 2.0.13146.0 ystem Software Changes Reflashes the DVD drives to support XGD3 Media : PLDS DG-16D4S, PBDS VAD6038 and PLDS DG-16D2S, to a new stock firmware : 0272, 04421C, 02510C. Also patches Samsung MS25 & MS28. Anti-Piracy 2.5 scheme updated. Support for the new XGD3 disc format for games, adds 1GB of usable disk space and extra anti-piracy features to new games. Adds a new 1 hour Auto-Off setting in addition to the 6 hour Auto-Off setting previously available. Xbox Live Changes Adds PayPal support as a payment option for all Xbox Live users, except : Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Czech Republic, Finland, Greece, Hungary, India, Japan, Russia, South Africa, South Korea and Taiwan. Other Minor bugfix. Does this mean that after updating (via USB) to the latest Dashboard I can safely go on Xbox Live? Or would I need to restore to factory settings the entire Xbox after updating to the latest Dashboard? Or am I missing something all together? Thanks!
