first off this is not my tutorial it is from xbox360iso
Please do this at your OWN RISK! I’m not responsible if it does not work for you!
Ok well I was trying to figure out a way to bypass the update and be online at the same time on my flashed Xbox, and I found a way to do that.
Your console must NOT [already] be updated.
I dont have a flashed xbox so please tell me the outcome.
1.) Start up your Xbox like you normally would
2.) Click the eject button as soon as it starts up
3.) Your drive should be open; you will receive update
4.) Now you must accept the update
5.) Your console will take a few minutes to download the firmware
6.) Right after the console is close to finishing, put your hand in the DVD drive
7.) The console will then shut off and then back on, and start downloading again
8.) You can now take your hand out and let it finish updating
Once that is all over with, your console may restart. Try putting in some burnt games and they should all load like they normally do. Also, go to system info and check your Dashboard Update (should read: 2.0.13146.0) and make sure it is correct.
There may be a chance that your console will be flagged for this so do it at your own risk people!
I figured that since your disk drive was not closed that it would basically bypass the reflashing or your disk drive. Some have said it worked. Now you may have to redo every time you want to play something though.
Well, I am confused. Why did you Bold ‘You must not have already updated or have a update’? Because if you updated before trying then of course this will not work. Figure this would help those that did not update in fear of reflashing their xbox.
