    I don't know if this is true (I mean, I could verify it through some first hand experience, but for obvious reasons I won't), so better be careful.

    Although it' s a hassle, from a security-point of view this whole thing with the 360 reflashing itself is actually kinda cool.

    This is massive, so does it change the key? If you want to reflash must you extract the key again?

    I never thought they would do this for fear of bricking drives.

    I updated to the new dashboard first and it did updated the firmwire version. I updated to the new LT v1.9 using the same key and everything still works. It only changes the firmwire version.

    So basically the people who win out are the ones modding 360s for money. [​IMG]
