Well I am thinking I may just allow the update to come and see what it does. I dont use many backups so as long as my 360 can still play originals on live I am fine.

Being a Mac user its hard for me to get my drive flashed, so i dont feel like going to the original just to wait for a new firmware to get released a few weeks from now and find someone to flash it yet again.
Does anyone know of a way to flash using a Mac?


Erm well we wont know if live's still gonna work till tonight, Altho we all hope it will smile.gif. I'm not a Mac user so dont know of any way, search the forum im sure you'll find an answer to your questoion somewhere.

Thanks NS360

P.S Please only post your 2007 spring update results, No questions about bans and so on....

i think you should delete the replies and keep the thread clean

Same here


Sorry guys im no mod cant delete posts, I do however agree please keep this topic clean and only post results.

It dosent help when people post request to delete posts because i then have to reply making it even harder to find what we want which is results.

If a mod wants to delete the post please do other then any results.

Thanks I'm sure all you all understand.

-This is my last post till i have my results.

Drive: Hitachi v59
Firmware: 2.3S
Back-up tried: Gears of War

My Gears backup worked fine after the update, and I can't tell any difference between the backup or the retail copy in terms of loading speed / noise after the update was applied.
