How To Recover Your X360 Drive Key There are many reasons why you want to have a safe copy of your drive key. In case a future upgrade does not go as planned, the current drive need to change your motherboard. All these should have brought you to keep a copy on your PC and another one sent to a hosted email (not a Pop3 kept on your pc !!!) or a printed copy. The key is specific to the motherboard which will not accept any drive not providing its associated key. Recovering they key can be done from your original firmware (or any of this specific drive hacked & functional firmware after that) obtained the first time you flash your drive. you can open that firmware with FW toolbox 3.1B and copy (ctrl-c) the key information and paste it in a .txt file to print it. You can also recover the key from a drive if it is functional (or at least that the access to the firmware is still possible using the usual command) and that the drive still has the key in it. You can now extract the key form the orig.bin file. rgds, soso

Xbox 360 system software Xbox 360 Dashboard (or System Updates), is the updatable software and operating system for the Xbox 360. It resides on a 16 MB file system and has access to a maximum of 32 MB of the system's memory.[1] While the system software updates may sometimes provide updates to the system's firmware, it is unlikely that this occurs with many, if any, updates. The updates can be downloaded from the Xbox Live service directly to the Xbox 360 and subsequently installed. The Xbox 360 game system allows users download applications that add to the functionality of the dashboard. The current public version of the Xbox 360 system software is 2.0.16747.0, released April 1, 2014. History of updates[edit] Xbox Live Preview Program[edit] Starting with the NXE Dashboard (2.0.7357.0), Larry Hryb (Xbox Live's Major Nelson) and other team members hosted a new segment using Microsoft Connect to allow members of the Xbox Live Community to get a chance to have a preview of the next dashboard.
