    Hi c4eva.

    Thanks for the update. Is it safe to update with CFW, or revert back to OFW before updating?

    when c4 says 'same' checks does that imply we must revert back to stock in order to avoid flags.

    I updated without reverting to stock on my lite-on slim lt+3.0 0225 without any problems, however as Ubergeek always says its recommended to revert to stock before updating you xbox. c4eva has addressed this issue before and he said as long as you dont have one of the drives that changes fw with xbox updates than you are ok to update the xbox without reverting to stock, but I think as long as your on dash 13599 or higher your ok bc your drive fw has already been changed and pcb locked.

    If you want to waste time then revert to stock. I've had mine for years and never reverted to stock to update, however I'm not going to give much of a s**t if I get banned so.. :)

    Will this update do the same checks like erasing FW and revert it to stock? so I had to re-flash LT+3.0 again???

    No it won't flash back to stock & Personally I don't think u have to go back to stock if ms could read FW then it would have been over a long time ago. Thanks c4 for confirming safe!

    You people amaze me. STOP ASKING IF YOU NEED TO FLASH TO STOCK FIRST. IT'S THE SAME F*******G PROCESS FOR EVERY NEW DASH UPDATE!!!!

    Honestly if there was a large chance of them detecting during update there's no reason they couldn't do the same checks sporadically or whenever the drive is guaranteed to be idle, I very much doubt there's a high risk for not reverting to stock.

    How about this answer.

    If you don't play or ever care about XboxLive, then no, you don't have to revert back.

    If you want to be the safest you can (since there is still risk playing backups, even if it's 99.99% safe), then revert to stock FW.

    I reflashed back to stock then updated via usb and then reflashed LT+3.0 onto my (phat-liteon),I know i could have updated without reverting to stock but call me old-fashioned i think your risking a flag and a ban,better to be safe than sorry,

    Exactly… If there was some way to read FW in update process then they would have a full proof 100% way to detect Cfw. Game over. There would be no need for all these other measures. You tamper with your drives FW next day and bam your box is banned. Simple and easy.

    Did you flash back to correct stock? Is your power adaptor red or orange?

    Just updated two consoles. Mine and my cousin's. Both first reverted to stock updated and then again flashed with LT + 3.0. All games running fine offline and live…
    No X-values or other values changed…
    Everything is so good so far…

    I think that the whole process should be made harder so some people who ask the same questions over and over each time wont even bother. Every time a new dash comes out, everyone wants their hand held. Every time a new game comes out…same thing…Jesus people it's really not that hard stop being so f**king lazy.

    Flashed 2 xbox's back to stock using x360 pro and latest JF both got PCB replacements in them, the 0401 went smooth, but 0225 drive crashed out during outro bricking the PCB replacement, I ordered a new one all when great (I mention it as I had same symptoms ie eject not working and no properties)

    Now to the main reason to post the 0225 drive just updated again to dash 2.0.14719.0 so seem its a double roll out, the kids did it before I caught it all seem well but obviously revert to stock again before for best practice.

    I am not trying to outsmart nor trying to imply anything, but for me what I do is download the update from xbox.com put it on a usb, or disk. Unplug my xbox from internet and then update. No need to revert to stock and no problems. I am not trying to say that I am smarter than c4eva or any other senior, but this has always worked for me, my brother, cousin, and friends.
    P.S. Thank you c4eva and team jungleflasher for all your hardwork and effort and anybody involved in making all this possible. :)

    So its safe to apply the new update ? because my phat xbox is asking to apply update before it can connect to live.
    Can I just apply the new update or I have to revert back to stock firmware before and reflash back with LT3
