    I fail to understand how a update can give you RROD but the first thing that came to mind was oh-shi.

    I fail to see how an update could cause the RROD, seeing it's a hardware issue.

    I agree with raulpica.

    Is it me or does that RROD looks odd?

    Errr no. The NXE is confirmed to not block flash dvd drives.

    and this has nothing to do with people with flashed drives.

    I personally think this has nothing to do with the NXE actually causing RRoD, but more to do with people who get RRoD soon after installing the update. They will probably think the update caused it but in actuality it was just bad timing when their system decided to choke. They they will call Microsoft complaining about how the NXE killed their system. Thats what I think the rep meant when he said trouble.

    Just like with a guitar hero 2 update. People went crazy in the forums complaining.

    I finally figured out what was bothering about that ring. It has the top right part lit up instead the bottom right.
