    Hi All,

    My son has an xbox 360 that has be banned and i was wondering how we can get any updates that are required to run any newer games.
    We used to get updates online but since we cant go online i need another option if possible.
    Maybe there is a site that uploads the latest xbox 360 updates and i can download it from there and install via usb.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers

    I think the updates for the dashboard are on the discs, so you'll be fine there.

    As far as patches for specific games go, that's a different story. I don't know how to get those without Xbox Live... [​IMG]

    You can take apart the 360's harddrive and connect it to your computer through a SATA port, then using software like XPort360 or XPlorer360 you can place updates on Partition 3 of the HDD. Check out this thread for more info:

    Yeah what Frozen mentioned is for game updates. However actual system updates are easier. Either you can get them off a disc or you can use a USB flash drive to get them on. You'll have to google how to do that because I can't post the link to what I would have given you. (I'm 100% sure the actual page is legal, but I'm not so certain about the rest of the site)

    Ok so is it easier using a xbox 360 transfer cable to do it or just take drive out of 360 and connect sata to sata?
    Also i assume it means i cant do this with xbla games unless the xbox 360 is jtagged is that correct?

    Cheers

    Unless you crack signing (not likely to happen) then you need a homebrew capable 360.

    As for game updates I am far too lazy to type stuff right now so a bit of copy and paste from the 360 releases thread

    Thanks Fast6191 im just looking for someone who can jtag an xbox 360 in Melbourne,Australia any ideas?
    Also if i jtag is it safe to go on live or will i get banned?
    I thought a new xbox 360 for jtag stuff + live and the old banned unit for copies will that work?

    Cheers
