Xbox LIVE Dashboard Update 2.0.16203.0 Rolling Out *UPDATED*

This morning, Microsoft has begun rolling out a new SystemUpdate that brings the Xbox 360 dashboard/kernel version to 2.0.16203.0.

Although there has been no official word from Microsoft yet, it's likely this update addresses a minor issue or small change as evidenced by the single digit increment in version number over the last update.

After updating, LT+ v3.0 and LTU v1.0 continue to work fine with backups both offline and on Xbox LIVE. Xk3y also continues to function without issue on LIVE and offline.

Check back here on c4evaSpeaks.com for official word from c4eva once he's done a LIVE log for this update.

P.S. Quit being such gullible fools and regurgitating the nonsense from Wikipedia every time an update comes out.

*UPDATE* [2013-02-20 06:29PM UTC]
Whoops. I missed the tweet yesterday from Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson (Larry Hryb), confirming our assumption that it was a minor change:

"Xbox LIVE System update out today. No big changes just an update to default settings that will only be visible to certain users in the EU."

Also, for those asking in the comments, yes, LT v2.01 and LT+ v2.0 continue to work fine after the update as well.

          Ok, lets assume that "safe" in this case means you want to be 100% sure to not get banned: in this case the update is NOT YET safe. -> do not update

          Its an easy drill: MS updates their software and there is a slight chance it detects that your drive is modded which will result in a ban. C4eva will check wherether the software detects it or not. When he knows the outcome he'll post it here stating it is safe or not. Untill now noone knows if the update gets you banned.

          So just to be clear, is it safe?: No! (Not yet)

            Well he said according to firmware itself it wont get you banned so it's just your fault of having bad rips, playing early, not using abxg360.. so it is SAFE but i wouldn't really go play newer games..

      It has been known for a while that MS can run a check on the "pictures" that get used in the Mixed Media Disc process when using ISOMenu. They match the media tag metadata with known p2p and scene release ISO files for a match. As the xk3y itself is still undetectable the media tags alone are not exactly proof so they cant get away with banning without knowing for definite. Just remember to update to the new dash in passthru mode and you should be fine.

    I have not updated yet. But I can confirm I've been playing games early offline for years. Set your Xbox date to the release date play it offline. I sign into live same day as release and I'm golden. If you really wanna play gears play it. Just don't expect to be able to sign into live before release date. It's not difficult.

    Admin couldn't make it more clearer than he has done already. Yet still people insist on asking the same questions. It seems that nothing short of c4eva appearing at their door personally to give them the announcement they so crave will do, so there is no point anyone answering or even bashing their posts. Please make your own educated choice with the information already given to you. If you cant find or understand this information then you should maybe be playing a gameboy and leave your daddy's xbox alone.

      Welcome to every update for the last few years. Rather annoying how these all fill up with 100+ posts and prob 80+% asking the same question. "is it safe" "Will I get banned" Or my favorite while waiting for the 2.0 and then 3.0 "IS XXX almost done yet?! I need an answer NOW" and then eventually cursing c4eva out stating he's lazy incompetent etc etc. People get inpatient waiting for cfw that is developed by one person as they aren't able to do it themselves. I would think C4eva doesn't read these post cause if it were me and I read all the bs some of these clowns post I would prob tell them to sit and spin and either start charging or just say forget it all together.

    i love c4 and everything, i just didn't know the log would need so much time <w< thinking of updating now…

    is the log necessary to ensure the update is ban-safe? ('Yes.' or 'No.' please–save us the technical details)

    thanks loves!<3

      I have to agree with you , if he didnt said he was checking it was one thing , but he did , and it doesnt take that long to verify an update , still for everything he has done for us he can take all the time he need , i know it's bad to wait but you can always play off-line or buy originals.

        yeah i'm playing fable 3 offline:) maybe ppl will wanna marry me when im back on = 3=. all this delay just makes me wonder what's involved in doing the Live log. if i were the worrying type i'd even think it means he found something bad. IF i were the worrying type… <w<

        THE WORLD'S ENDING!!

    Dear Admin,

    Please tell me if I can go back on Live and update to the latest dash without getting the risk of being banned because of the update.

      STOP making multiple posts asking the same question and using different nicknames, XboxNL / iiRick / Buddy97 / Quick / Person / Number 1 / PCB007 / Person97 / Thename / JustTimez / C4-BOOOOM! / Xbox97 / ProxStylez / MuscledRH. Stick with one post and one nickname, or I'll ban your IP permanently. One warning only.

      You need to pay closer attention when you read, and maybe work on your memory skills. You even referred other people to my posts about it after the last update in December.

      Read here, here and here (this is your own comment FFS!).

        Man you have freaking Zen like patience. I would be throwing ban hammer left and right after all the posts I've witnessed over the past couples years I've frequented this site. I imagine the moderation alone is causing you hair loss.

    This is more out of curiosity than anything, but:

    Aside from checking whether or not everything functions normally (I'm not going to pretend to understand how), do the logs show any other information? I guess specifically, is there some part of the log that will show whether or not an Xbox is "tagged" for a ban later down the line? Again, I've just been wondering this out of curiosity and if it's some top secret code, then I certainly don't need to know it.

      I want to say a long time ago i read there was a website that you could see if you were flagged or not. Not sure if it was true or even exists anymore. I don't recall the site but maybe Google or someone here could respond with the info.
