    2012 Xbox LIVE Update Public Beta Registration Open

    Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson (Larry Hryb) posted today that the 2012 Xbox LIVE Update Public Beta program is open for registration.
    Users who register and are accepted into the program can expect updates to be pushed out to their enrolled console(s) that will include dashboard features such as:
    • Internet Explorer on Xbox
    • Personalized dashboard recommendations
    • Enhanced category search and discovery features
    • Pins to customize the Xbox dashboard
    Other features may also become available during the program, and Microsoft notes that consoles in the program are expected to remain fully compatible with standard retail consoles not in the program (meaning you should still be able to play against others on Xbox LIVE whose consoles aren't running the beta dash).

    It's of course too early to know whether the beta updates or the final update will bring about any changes that affect the Xbox 360 DVD drives or c4eva's cfw. However, once the beta updates start being pushed out, we'll report here on c4evaSpeaks if there are any firmware-related effects after team member's test boxes have been put through their paces.


    *UPDATE*
    Registration is already closed. The first Beta program update has been pushed out to enrolled users, and brings the Xbox 360 dashboard/kernel up to version 2.0.16091.0. Users have reported that backups still boot fine on LT+ v3.0 and xk3y also continues to work on LIVE. So far, there have been no reports of any adverse effects on c4eva's iXtreme firmware.

    They reopened the Public Beta

    Open Call, More Testers Welcome for 2012 Xbox LIVE Update Public Beta!

    The amount of interest we received in July for the 2012 Xbox LIVE Update Public Beta was so staggering that today we’re announcing a second open call for Xbox LIVE subscribers to test out the beta program. I can tell you that we’re accepting far more beta-testers this time around, but space is still limited and once the spots are filled the beta will be closed, so sign up today!
    If you’re selected, an update will be pushed to your Xbox 360 in the next few days. The update will contain new Xbox LIVE features, including:
    • Internet Explorer for Xbox
    • Recommendations and ratings
    • Pinning and favorites
    • Enhanced category search and discovery features
    • Voice search (in specified markets)
    Note: A console in the program is expected to remain fully compatible with standard retail consoles not in the program.
    If you would like to participate, please register for the 2012 Xbox LIVE Update Beta here. You will be required to agree to a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) for confidentiality reasons. Any participant who violates the NDA will be removed from this beta and all Xbox betas moving forward, and will not have access to Xbox LIVE until the end of this beta program period. Our NDA enforcement squad is really good at finding violators; so save us both the trouble and don’t test them. We also ask that you fill out a brief 5-minute survey at the end of the beta to let us know what you think.
    Your interest and passion in helping the Xbox team has been awesome and we’re very excited to see the early feedback so that we can make Xbox even better. Thanks again for your participation and enjoy!
    Update: Several users have reported an issue with accessing the registration link for this program — keep trying – there is a high demand on the site right now due to the popularity of the program.
