I just logged on to live (19/01/2011) and got hit with a large update MajorNelson says it's so u can boot game on startup but it seems too big to be just that, they say there's an update to look of game cards. I smell somthing fishy here as it seems to be taking far too long to download, restart then download again (25 MINS SO FAR! @ 2.5mbs)

Changing game booting seems a good cover for them to drop in new FW checks FWcert.bin anyone>?


What do y'all think???

My son is having the same problem he was just playing black ops got kicked and it updated on him and now no backups are working, they go to a black screen and that's it. All originals are fine and at this moment he is not banned from xbox live.

I am guessing that MS have just put a new booting check in and we'll just have to await a new firmware.

Halo reach doesnt work either because I tried that as well as black ops and got a black screen for both games and the system takes ages to turn off.

I have used my backup to play blackops for almost 35 hours++, but after xbox live update today the game isn't booting.. The screen just turns black and if you want to return to dashboard it just freezes.

I have tried to clear the system cache but it didn't help and likewise the game won't boot even if you are offline.

I also found out that MW2 isn't working and I have never had any problem with that game either.

ACB, Forza 3, COD 4, COD WAW works just fine..

Have ms found a way to block these games?

If NFS is working then is it possible that they have somehow enabled ap2.5 for those games that arent working ???
