    I believe that is a question a lot of, if not all, people are waiting to be answered.

    Although my confidence is baseless, I feel that those with iXtreme 1.4 will be fine. That is to say... I do expect a lot of:[*]FFFFFFFFFFFFFF[*]OH SHI-[*]OMGWTFBBQIt would have been a bit more epic had Microsoft chose November 5th.

    Theres a download that supposedly has the full version of the NXE you can put it on a CD or USB stick and update your console. Though apparently you can't connect to Live until the 19th. I'm not doing this myself until I learn more about it, I don't want a version of the NXE that stops my 360 from -ever- connecting to Live.

    Edit: I just recieved this bits of info about it, still not sure what to think:

    I don't think it is worth you trying it. Things are downloaded during the installation process, so it is possible your console being banned might stall you during the installation process, effectively bricking your console.

    1. If I download and install that, why will I not be able to connect to LIVE?

    No you wont because the Dashboard currently is tied to your consoles ID number. If your console ID isn't on the list to have the new Dash, you wont be able to use live

    Quote:2. Where did you get this?

    There was a Preview Program opened a day or two back so Microsoft could check the new Dashboard out in the wild as it were, with a combination of ISPs and hardware. This download has come from someone who has taken it off of their hard drive.

    Quote:3. What version of this software is this?

    4. Is this the final release?

    Basically the final test release which has been given to members of the public to test.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------

    Further information I've just recieved, supposedly this is from an email that microsoft sent the people who were part of the test:

    But, shouldn't there be some sort of new authentication system for the DVD drive since NXE allows you to completely download a disk to your HDD?

    That it just to check if the correct disc is in the dvd drive.

    I think people with flashed drives will be fine.

    Incorrect, banned consoles update just fine. Things are not downloaded during the installation. Normally, if your console is banned, you can download the entire update and just burn it to disc. This NXE preview rip does not include the Avatars and considering you can't connect to Live, I would say screw it and just wait [​IMG]

    Yeah I've installed Fallout 3 as well with my flashed drive and all is well. It kinda sucks we don't get to create any avatars until we can sign into Live, but at least I can play my games with complete silence from my 360.

    I had a thought but I'm not sure how valid it is, with 360 games running off the hard drive instead of the dvd drive, will that help the temperature inside the xbox itself stay even a degree cooler? I don't know how much heat a constantly spinning drive would give off.

    The dashboard is tied to the console ID that was leaked with it. So no LIVE until it sees its november 19. Don't try changing the date.
