Xbox 360 system update 2.0.16547.0 released
Seems that Xk3y and LT3 are safe!
Microsoft has released a new system update for the Xbox 360, featuring some changes related to child accounts management.
Microsoft has released the new kernel update 2.0.16547.0 via Xbox LIVE.
Right now people are reporting that Xk3y and LT3 are safe:
• 'Some changes have been made to how child accounts are managed and created.'
But as always, and if you use any of those devices, be careful when updating!
- The X360Key still works after the update, all games will be launched without any trouble.
- The Flash (LT +3.0 - LTU2.0) also works perfectly, games will always be engraved with a IHAS or clone.

Is this the final update now that the Xbox One has been released? If so, I'll get my jtag out of storage and update it one last time.
i would think we are getting to the end of the road for updates to the 360 and ps3. but since they still have a good year or so left in them we may get one or two updates from microsoft and knowing sony, probably another half dozen then another half dozen once the ps3 ceases production.

Hi, Thanks for the info. I have not updated my xbox for a while (still have the 2.0.16202.0), will the xbox require to be flashed again? I'm not sure which flash do I have :|
knorre you should be fine. So people advice to flash back to stock then update then flash the Custom firmware back to the drive after the update, but I have always just updated and never had an issue.

Yeah. I've read that on every xbox hacking site too. But like you, I have never flashed to stock first and have never had a problem. No flags, no bans, and I've been doing it that way since 2008. I honestly think that advice is just legacy excuses from when the scene never wanted to admit the flags & bans were actually the fault of the firmwares and blame it on the end users.

Yeah, I myself updated without reflashing to stock either.

The only ones that should had been flagged back then were ones that had replaced their drive model that is BenQ instead of Hitachi and it was not spoofed correctly, and even if it was spoofed some checks would had failed, so reflashing to stock would be still incorrect, even worse, only solution would be to replace the drive back with the original one during the update.
I think also alot of this 'hype' was added so that TX could sell more hardware then was needed, once they turned drive firmwares into a commercial business even tho the firmware itself was released free, it was all designed to sell hardware for reflashing, replacing boards, etc.
One of the reasons I got out of doing firmwares for the 360 scene, the behind the scene drama was very crazy.
I updated the xbox and it was perfectly fine
