The 2010 Xbox Live Dashboard Update just went live yesterday, and already lots of Xbox 360 users are reporting problems encountered while trying to download the update or install it, not to mention many who don't like some of the new features implemented in this fall update.
Microsoft launched its traditional Fall update to the Xbox Live
online service and the regular Xbox 360 dashboard, but this time the mandatory update caused quite a lot of problems, as lots of Softpedia readers left comments on yesterday's story detailing the changes made by the update.
It seems that download issues were encountered by lots of people, as their Xbox 360 consoles required them to download the update in order to access Xbox Live.
Sadly, for many of our readers, the download wouldn't start, or when it did start, the update process was stuck in the first stages.
A lot of comments pointed to this issue, including users like 'J Dub
' or 'Donny
', not to mention the eloquently named 'Angry Xbox Live customer
We tried to update our own console yesterday and encountered the same download problem, with the Xbox 360 not being able to start the download process, even if the Internet connection was working flawlessly.
Reader 'big rob
' was stuck in pretty serious loop, saying that: "Update says I can't connect then tells me to test my connection. I did that and it tells me to update to finish connection test.
' experiencing freezing issues during the update process: "I'm having issues with it. It won't let me finish downloading it and it just goes white to a white box and freezes.
Some of our readers said that the new update doesn't really enhance the design of the Xbox 360 dashboard, with 'iRocheyy
' saying that it is too white, while 'Recon
' only appreciates the new icons.
' wasn't exactly thrilled about the update, but after experiencing it, he was quite pleased: "Never mind, I take it all back. The new dashboard looks great and the new additions, especially those in the games marketplace, are very nice to have.
For its part, Microsoft revealed that it is aware of the problems with the 2010 Xbox Live Fall Update, and that it is working on solving all of the problems encountered by gamers.Until then, feel free to share with us any other problems you encountered with the new Xbox 360 update.

Worst update I have seen because there is no choice. If system is not updated it will log you out of your xbox live account. Tried to update several times and it finally did my netflix had to be updated too and again it struggle to get the updated for that and it requires to get a gold xbox live account. Talk about microsoft stick it to the consumers. I will be looking for alternatives to replace the xbox.

For some reason my Force Unleashed 2 will no longer come up. Every time I pour the disc in I get a, "open tray". It worked fine before the update.

I've been on the preview program and during that time i've had about 10 or 12 updates and it's worked flawlessly for me every time.
One thing to try is clear your cache before and after the update. Some files from the old dash appear to be causing problems with the new updated dash.
Also the download does appear to get stuck at certain points, just try to leave it, some people have had to wait 15 minutes or more for it to move on. There are a lot of people all downloading the same file at the same time, so it will swamp the servers.

Trying to format my 360's * drive and it doesnt seem to respond. I go through the steps and enter the serial number, then it just returns me to the enter serial number screen. I was hoping a format would help clean up some issues. Anyone else try to format?

I had the same problem with updating, saying I wasn't connected and I was, so I just downloaded the update and put it on my flash drive and installed it like that, and now I'm getting an error about a system update is required for xbox live and then saying it is temporarily unavailable.. WTF???

Try going to the my xbox thingy where your avatar is placed. You have to update your online agreement before having access to Live.

I've had the same problem. I have tried everything in all of the options available, I have even deleted and recovered my gamertag but still no friends and no ability to play online! Shocking!

I'm so angry at Microsoft or whoever is responsible for the update.
We have all payed good money for our liv3 membership.
I believe we should be compensated for every day that passes that we've paid for. If they don't return our money, then they're basically stealing.
Also, I've come to relize that xbox arcade games (that we've paid for) don't work unless your connected to xbox live... It just gives you the demo version?... WTF?
Well I hope someone from xbox is reading all these comments.
|Comment #14 by: CHE on 02 Nov 2010, 15:46 UTC|| reply to this comment|
My xbox keeps freezing and got the RROD. This never happened before I got the update. It also keeps getting E79 and E71 error messages. I don't want to switch to another console because Xbox live is great. I think they should do something for people who's xbox is ****ed. Like extend the warranty or fix the ones that were affected.
|Comment #14.1 by: bill098i on 02 Nov 2010, 19:00 GMT|
theres no way the update cause rrod, it was F'ed up before your just trying to get something for free
|Comment #14.2 by: FordId42 on 04 Nov 2010, 04:19 GMT|
No billirod, mine got a red ring after the update, too, and there was NEVER any problems with it before. From what I understand, this s actually a rampant problem.
|Comment #14.3 by: dlf_loki on 09 Nov 2010, 02:05 GMT|
my x-box has played like a champ for years and as soon as i download the update that i had no choice in downloading, i too now have a $300 paperweight. microsoft then tells me that as my system is out of warranty i have to pay to get it fixed. so as i see it this is the mentality of microsoft: i pay for xbox live gold, i have no choice in downloading the update (if i don't, i can't get on xbox live, that i have paid for) , the xbox takes a crap after downloading said update, therefore it is up to me to pay to have my xbox fixed.

After the update my xbox live id/windows id is no longer valid! wtf!!!

I'm in the same boat. I have a family package Gold and out of four of us only one can sign in to xbox live, the rest say invalid xbox live id. How much can you get for these consoles at the pawn shop? lol

This updae blows.... Not only does is freeze 10 to 20 seconds between selections or backing out of selections it now looks and sounds like the nintendo wii... come on now, the people that play the xbox don't want kiddie crap. Ya the kenect may be cool and simular to the wii controls but that doesnt mean change everything to look, sound and act the it. Xbox keeps this crap up I'm buying a PS3.......Already shopping on ebay.

when browsing my Watch Instantly Queue on Netflix, it automatically takes me back to a certain point in the C's (it's arranged alphabetically), no matter where I'm browsing. it's infuriating. it doesn't do it when browsing anything but Instant Queue...

As soon as I updated I was signed out of live and it wouldn't let me back on. An hour later it did, then kicked me off 5 minutes in. This never happened before the update. It should be optional seeing as most(from what I could see) of it was geared for kinect. I don't even plan on getting it.

I was able to download and install the update, but now my xbox will not read any of my games. The tray opens and closes, but does not see any of the games, and I've tried 5 or 6 different ones.

I have one thought. WHY exactly was the update in bloody foreign languages?
I have yet to download it because i dont update without reading the terms of service.

I can no longer play any games or do anything at all, as now my xbox has become useless. I would rather have a red ring than this. What idiot made the layout.. it looks like it was done by someone who was flunking college with bad grades. It was good the way it was, the future was not meant to be. I thought it was me. I played too much on the t.v.

This update is horrible, my xbox is responding slowly to almost every action I do, the updated netflix is great, but it doesn't load all of the time. I am conitually getting a error basically stating I can't use all of the x box live features at this moment.. this update was horrible and they have quite possibly ruined a great dashboard application.

All the problems I have had have been in game since the update. I have been playing Fallout New Vegas and every time I attempt to use Vats, my box freezes and I have to turn it off. Also about one out of every five times I try to load a new area, bam freezes.

Ok, here's what happened. The first thing I did was not buy Kinect. I turned on my XBOX, and sat through the mandatory dashboard update. As it finished, my screen got all pin-striped and looked really messed up. After the update finished and after the walkthrough, i restarted the XBOX. Now I have the ERROR 74 message with one blinking led on the front. Thanks, Microsoft, for breaking my console less than a week before Black Ops...

|Comment #52 by: Mike on 06 Nov 2010, 07:59 UTC|| reply to this comment|
Here's one for you: I downloaded the new update and now, despite the test connection telling me there's no problem, I can't connect to my account online, meaning I can't access my friends or do anything the requires connecting to the internet. I can't even access Netflix because it keeps telling me that I need to have a Gold account (and I do) and when I try to sign on with my account, it not only disregards it, but then disconnects me from XBox Live! What did they just slap this update together to keep in time with the Kinect release, or what?

There are countless graphical errors in my Dashboard. It even shows up when I play my games. Too bad I can't redownload the update so that I start over. Also, most of the games I've tried to play freeze during gameplay. Microsoft, you've messed up. Badly.
|Comment #60 by: dan on 15 Nov 2010, 18:33 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I agree with alot of these people making comments.
My issue is every time I try to go on net flix or play any game online it instantly kicks me to offline status. I cant even watch the videos I have downloaded because it says my licenses were erased. Not to mention all of my friends I had vanished with this fail update.
So in other words I cant play with friends online and I cant even message them in the first place because they all got erased. Not to mention all my downloads for fable 2, oblivion, left for dead 2 and etc.... have all been erased.And every time I look for a solution I git the run around.
PS3 looks really nice right now.
why can't xbox 360 just add a universal update to fix what they have done.
Instead they tell you to wait on the phone for hours while some guy you cant even understand gives you the run around.

I have the Arcade version of the 360. Since this latest 2010 kinect update i have had problems, everything seemed ok at first. then later on I started playing a game then after only thirty seconds or so it froze and then I got the dreaded 2 left hand vertical red rings light up!
I switched it off for a few minutes unplugged everything. Tried again everything ok for a while this problem is intermittent maybe after a minute, an hour, my wife tried watching a DVD after a few minutes disc spinning up at excessive speeds,then red rings same as above, then tried again this time managed 10mins, this seems more than coincidence with this latest update. I hope theres a fix or now i have useless xbox360, thanks microsoft. from Kab.

I just bought Black Ops a week ago. I updated right before I played. After playing the single player for a week, my Xbox stopped reading the disc. I tried switching to another game and the same problem. I can still go on the dashboard but cannot play any games since it won't read any discs. This is beyond ridiculous. Anyone else having the same issue?
|Comment #63.1 by: My 3rd (and last) Xbox on 22 Nov 2010, 04:09 GMT|
After the update, console video output is lost while "in game". Hitting the silver Xbox button which brings up quick menu restores video. This is apparently a driver issue.

Yes, sadly after the update I have have numerous problems with my xbox. Keeps freezing saying "disc is dirty, wipe with a soft cloth". My discs are in perfect condition-no dirt or scratches. I've called MS 3 times now and they keep sending me file numbers and a questionnaire about the problems. I have filled the forms out, but still no reply from Microscum. I've got a couple a grand invested in games, and I'm * that MS won't admit that their update has basically bricked my console. It's out of warranty, and I don't want to spend $145 for another pile of junk.
|Comment #68 by: NotVeryImpressed.... on 19 Dec 2010, 12:28 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I was offline from xbl until yesterday and when I tried to download the update it completely screwed up. I used the files provided on xbox.com for the dashboard update (using a usb drive) and that worked fine. However I can't now access xbox live - as apparently I need an update which the xbox cannot download and apparently didn't come with the files from xbox.com. It has now been well over a month since the update was released and they still haven't fixed this? Who do they have developing this stuff, monkeys?

Xbox update May 2011, may BREAK your box and Msoft totally know !
unfortunately my perfectly functioning xbox updated on 7th June 2011, it worked immediately before the update then the update downloaded.
Hey presto now my box wont play my discs,it has never been modded in anyway but since updated it is now an expensive bookend.
contacted microsofts 'NON'support line and spoke to a customer service rep,apparently they KNOW that this update will damage some boxes,mine isnt on their list and out of warrNty so they want me to pay them £ 75 to fix.
i ask why it stopped working after their update, response was that a pre existing hardqare fault may have.been affected by the update, even though my box worked fine before and they recognise their software to be flawed and that it may be responsible they wont do anything to fix, even refused to log my complaint.
Microsft customer service NIL POINTS.

My gamer tag is darkflame1981. I had the same problems as everyone else, finally after 2 long and annoying hours i got live to work. The biggest problem i heard and saw last night was my friends x box got the red ring during the download and now has a busted x box. I believe it would only be right for him and everyone else that happened to and can prove it that x box replace their systems. As for the new dashboard, style and apps. Totally amazing, i absolutely love it. You really out done yourselves this time.

1. The new voice command and Kinect integration had to be disabled. While sitting on the couch chatting, it thought I was giving all kinds of commands and started playing random stuff. You know how voice command works so well on those automated phone systems? Yeah, it's like that.
2. The Netflix integration is a huge bummer. It's harder to keep your place in a TV series watched instantly because you can no longer read show descriptions. It also starts playing the show automatically, based upon which one you watched last. So while you're fast forwarding to figure out if you were awake or asleep during your last viewing (because sometimes you fall asleep on the couch watching Dr. Who marathons), suddenly the fast forward feature no longer shows you a smooth image, and instead you find your place through choppy screenshots. They should put it back the way it was.

Lets kill a few of the comments here.
1. you cant do the update? Your wireless sucks! Your gateway/router sucks. Do a direct modem connection guarantee it will work. You most likey have a crappy router that is dropping packets, or you have a turtle beach headset interfering with the wireless, or you got a mirror or large metal object in the way. Of course people with argue with me and say its the xboxs problem without trying a direct modem connection.
2. RROD cause of the update? The update didnt cause it, you had failing hardware and the new dashboard just made it show up. Kinda like installing a newer OS on a computer with a hard drive thats going. Sure it worked fine before , but once you try to push it a little harder with the new software its the straw that breaks the camels back.
