    okay, so I bought an old (gen 1?) RROD xbox 360 and brought it back to life. It's been running great now for a couple of months. I just hooked it up through my laptop, and it wants to update. The dashboard it has currently is 2.0.8955.0. As I'm hoping to mod it to play back ups, (hopefully off of a USB drive but I'm not too keen on soldering..) I'm guessing I shouldn't update it? But I'd also like to access downloadable content for Red Dead Redemption.. so I'm not too sure what to do... Should I look into Jungleflasher and leave my Dashboard how it is for now?

    Thanks

    Sure you can update it, 8955 has already blown the efuses so it doesn't make any difference.

    You need dash 7371 at the very latest to do what you want to do.

    There are two different types of modding/hacking on the 360.

    1. Flashing the DVD drive.
    2. JTAGing it.

    The one you want is JTAG, but you need a 7xxx Dashboard to do so.

    So it's too late now for my Xbox 360? no way to roll it back? And flashing the DVD drive, does that just allow me to play back up DVD roms?

    thanks

    Flashing the reader just allows you to play 360 dvds.
