Well the title speaks for itself. I bought my 360 flashed and i was planning to update its firmware to 1.6
(i have a lite-on), but i was wondering if you need a connectivity kit and all those other things u need when flashing your firmware when u update your firmware.

its all the same thing... you always need the same tools whether you are flashing it for the first time, or updating it for the umpteenth time.

I would always recommend the ck3 kit, as I do think people get banned for using the xbox as a power supply.

You can get away without an extractor. Since it is already flashed you can choose dummy from ixtreme to get the dump files from your drive.
