Just done mine & still connected to live afterwards.
I disconnected & reconnected a few times too & as reported in previous post, nothing untoward.

Could this be something Commodore4eva has to take a look at? An update followed by a ban wave could be a smart move from Microsoft just before release of GTA4.

true, first thing I thought - but this is one of my first 10 posts and I aint no MS worker smile.gif Maybe he just got banned and had a look around for some info.. but it does seem a bit wierd! Hence we gotta wait for a few more reports. Hope they dont come though! Normally when the banning kicks in it is'nt like instant after the update is it? I thought last time they let people update then had a big banning wave a few days later, or am I talking rubbish? Cant rememebr!

major nelsons blog will never give you exact details on whats in the update (as they want to catch as many as they can).

they may be locking out drive spoofing, and possibly banning consoles, but i cannot confirm this. i suggest everyone try to hold off until more reports show up.

seems like the same thing they did with samsung drive downgrading which suggest its detecting a spoofed drive.

i took the leap and just updated my xbox. it didnt sign in straight away, but i am now signed in to live. dashboard and kernel version is now 6690.

just a bit of info:
Benq (not spoofed)
iXtreme 1.41 8x
original COD4 was in the drive during update

now im off to kill some people...

just posted on majornelsons site:

Xbox 360 System update now available (no new features)
A few minutes ago, the team released a system update for the Xbox 360 over Xbox LIVE. Sometime over the next few hours when you sign in to Xbox LIVE you’ll recieve a prompt to accept this mandatory update. This update contains code to ‘prepare for future growth of the service.’ There are no other changes or enhancements in this update…in other words no new features. The next obvious question you’ll have is about the Spring update. At this point we have nothing to announce, and the moment there is information to share I will do so
.

This is why I hate MS. A no feature update with no release notes (that I could find). "Future growth" preparation can't include release notes?

If i remember rightly sometime last year there was a small update come out which was announced to be something to do with the future release of Scene It, something to do with the controller or something then a couple of weeks later BAM the ban hamer began to fall. I'll just stay well away from this until we hear more news from respected figures in the community.

Still no hardship i'll just play on PS3 on line or have a 32 player match of Team Fortress2 on the PC lol.. cool.gif
