I am confused, how did you update your 360 from an old firmware to the newest one, without the r6t3 resistor, I recall it blocked you in the middle of the install? Unless you mean you just install Freeboot, in which case, Linux still works for me.
EDIT: I take that back, I never ran Linux with the Kinect update, though I would assume it still works... ran on 8955.
Though this is how I just went to Linux:
Installed Xellous (I didn't care for freeboot or the 360 dashboard at all during this time, but you can install XBR or something(because I know for a fact that works))
Then I burned Gentoo to a cd (not a dvd, don't even think about it)
Then Xellous booted to the cd, and I am in the OS. Then I just installed it by running the ubuntuinstall.sh and bam, I have ubuntu install on my 360 hd
Then grab the sda2 boot disc.
Thanks for the assistance so far, I really appreciate all the help
Yep - I just updated Freeboot from 9199 to 12611 using Flash360 and then installed the $systemupdate from the MS web site via a USB, worked without issue. The RT63 resistor stops accidental updates, and gives an E79 error in such circumstances, but Freeboot updates are fine
I am still getting the error message though on the Gentoo Beta 2 Live CD:-
Not sure what to do, my gut feeling is it either to do with the single layer DVD-R I used (didn't realise I could use a CD-R) or the HDD currently attached (250GB). I might put the OEM 20GB drive in and see if this works / burn a new disc.
