    Hi All,

    I have a jtag xbox 360 with the above firmware and was trying to go online but its asking for an update.
    Is it safe for me to update?
    Also after update some games like Fable 3 + Need For Speed Hot Pursuit come up as disc unreadable but can be fixed by applying dash launch 2.06.

    Cheers

    Never ever let official updates near your JTAG 360 except if you want avatar data from a dashboard you are already at.

    If you do run a newer update depending on the setup you might be able to pull it back (see efuses) but it will take fiddling with hardware.

    The answer would be NO - to run the update would = official update. To quote FAST: "Never ever let official updates near your JTAG 360".

    As far as I am aware you should not go online with your JTag... Or if you did you would get instant banned... (So I believe)

    Plain and simple, JTAGS DO NOT BELONG ONLINE.

    He wasnt trying to update his JTAG to get online, maybe you should actually read the post

    And I love how less than a year ago everyone was all "OMG JTAGS ONLINE LET ME IN A LOBBY" and now once the creators of freeboot stopped and said their intentions werent to allow online cheating and business everyone jumped on the bandwagon and says "Oh yeah yeah JTAGs were meant only for online use (even though a month ago they were begging to get into a lobby)"

    I have not ever condoned online cheating. Fine that a new rebooter is needed occasionally for some newer features (Kinect with the 12611 update for example), but the cheating drives me nuts. I've had a Jtag since XBR (before freeBOOT was a single NAND option), and a flashed 360 for XBL. It pisses me off when there are people winning, not due to skill, but to a blatent cheat. SO PISS OFF IF YOU DON"T LIKE MY OPINION.
