I bought a 360 from a guy for cheap he said it works but it apparently doesnt. It powers on, no red ring or anything and will navigate the dashboard with no issues. When a game is put in it will start to load it and then freeze up. It will freeze at the same exact point in each game, before the game fully loads. I decided just to play with it and attempted to flash it with jungleflasher. Following the newest instruction guide it says to make sure the dashboard is up to date before flashing the latest ixtreme firmware. I downloaded the update and followed the directions to burn it to cd (the console is also banned from xbox live). When installing it gives me an error "E66". Thinking that the DVD ROM is bad I tried installing the update via USB and am still getting "E66".
Whats causing this error, the update itself or the DVD ROM? I found some articles linking the E66 error to hacked firmware but I dont know if that applies to me or not. a
What happens if i do not update the dashboard before flashing this firmware?
EDIT: well I figured out the E66 error, awhile back I had tried to flash the drive and thought I had been unsuccessful. On a whim I flashed it to stock and the update went through without the E66 error, however, The games still freeze up.
