Yeah you need to update you dashboard to the new Kinect DashBoard, since its modded I would update it offline but they are easy to find. Just download it (extract if needed) and put on a FAT32 formatted USB or burn it to a disc and update. No it won't mess up anything. I recently modded then updated a console this way.

What brand dvd drive is in your Xbox, if you have an older Samsumng or Hitachi drive then the newer games are playable (but with the hitachi drive you need to download and install the full update from xbox.com to make the games work, I dont understand why), but not might be entirely safe to play on life (especially late model Hitachi) if you have a newer Xbox then the newer games with AP25 will not work until a new LT+ firmware is released.

Edit: just realized you said you had a lite-on drive, this means that the newer games that come with the new dashboard update on the disc WILL NOT work on your xbox 360, and if you try to run them they will "flag" and very likely cause your system to get banned. Wait tell LT+ is released before attempting to run these days!

Also updating to the Dashboard is fine as far as keeping your drive in tact, all older games youve burned will still work, this only effects newer games that have "ap25".

Yeah basically you can't play those games until the new LT+ fw is out and if you have already tried to play them on the new dash, the console will now be flagged for a ban.

just update and forget about which games don't work on your console after the update, there are only a few newest games (non-kinect) games that it can't play at the moment and I'm sure your girls will never even touch those games

yes you need the new dashboard, but you can take it from the original kinect adventures bundled with the original kinect system . and you should be fine

regards

i used the dash from microsoft usb install, here are my only questions up to this point
w/ the lite on drive
1 which 360 games are ap2.5 protected
2 if you put in an ap2.5 protected game will it just ban u or could it brick you (these new games, when they ask u to update, its just updating the dash right)
3 when LT+ is released, will it be a software hack that we can use as a boot dick or something or will we need to take apart xbox and flash the dvd drive again

thanks
