    Hey guys i was wondering if i can update my modded xbox to the latest version, and if its safe or not ? and will it flash my drive back to stock ?
    i bought this xbox like 3 months ago and as far as i know its flashed to LT 3.0 its a xbox360 slim 4gb

    some other information : 1- dashboard : v2.0.14719.0

    2- and everytime i try to update it through xbox live it gives me this error code :
    " Can't process the update. if the problem persists, go to www.xbox.com/suppourt.

    Status code: 397F - 3F4B - 1781 - 0300 - C800 - 0036"

    And the thing is that i have the 2.0.16197.0 firmware that i want to update to on my flash memory but im hesitant to do it because i dont know if it will flash back to stock :/ any help is appreciated ...

    It's a shame, because you have 1 post, no one is willing to help you. It's basically how this site is.. If I could relay some help, I would, but I simply don't know enough about the subject. My understanding is, always flash back to stock first, before flashing it with your current firmware. Good luck with it!

    @Homework- Haha.. Says the guy with 11 Rep.

    I see new members get ignored by the big wigs on this sight pretty often. It's a shame.

    You should be fine to update without anything happening to your drive. You could try to download the update from xbox.com and update via USB if you continue to get that error.



    It is not the fact that nobody wants to help him because he has 1 post. Possibly the people best suited to answer his question could be offline or did not see the topic.

    Update version 13146 is only one that actually updates the DVD drives firmware

    397f = 14719 current dash version

    3f4b = 16203 is the update it is looking for to properly update

    ??Is your console banned??

    Try updating it with a different update OFFLINE

    Thx alot guys :) hopefully i'll learn more about this site as i develop my xbox modding skills :p

    If memory serves correct i think that my friend already told me about this but i have not tried it yet :) thx alot :)

    i've seen it now and the system update that i've just downloaded is "systemupdate_16203_USB.zip" and i think its the v2.0.16203.0 so does it change anything ?
    anyway thx alot for your help, much appreciated ^^

    to be honest i didn't understand the "397f" and the "3f4b" part.
    no its not banned :) its a brand new xbox that i bought like 3 months ago and already modded :)
    I will try it :) thx alot :)

    397f is hex for 14719 which says what your current dash version is
    3f4b is hex for 16203 is the update it is looking for to properly update, so download a MS update 16203 and update it off USB or a game that has 16203 which is probably every new game out since that update came out

    From your code error
    Status code: 397F - 3F4B - 1781 - 0300 - C800 - 0036

    This clears your cache.


    But code C800 usually means the console is BAN that's why it will not update on LIVE

    Look in system settings and find your current kernel version. Once you find that you need to download a matching version update, so if you have kernel version #14719, you need to download kernel version 14719 MS update to fix your avatar and kinect issue.
    To run the update you need to have the update on USB then restart the console.

    You will not be able to update it online because your console is banned

    If you can't update through USB nor can you through the Xbox, odds are it's banned. 16203 is the newest supported version. There's a beta version out but I'm not sure JRunner or 360 Flash Tool support it yet. You can flash your modded console with 16203 using JRunner or 360 Flash Tool. You will need your nand dump as well. If you need help with any of that, be sure to ask.

    Here is JRunner as well as 360 Flash Tool - http://www.mediafire.com/?swbw5wgsdcycz5b

    Sorry to hear it is banned, if you just purchased it from a shop they should have informed you that the console was banned upfront, or at least give you a discount for purchasing a ban console.

    If I were you, and if you still can, I'd get your money back from the person that sold you a banned xbox.

    Safe but do restore original FW and then upgrade, then install CFW again!
