    Update your JTAG/RGH to the Latest Dashboard By iMoses

    Current Dashboard: 16537

    Things you will need:
    -XeBuild GUI 2.091
    -Backup NAND
    -CPU Key
    -USB Flash Drive (Formatted to FAT32)
    -Flash360(if you don't have your NAND backed up)

    *Special Corona 4GB Instructions In Spoiler*

    Instructions:
    Skip to step 5 if you already have a backup NAND and your CPU key
    1. Boot into XeLL (with the console turned off, press the eject button)
    2. Copy CPU key down onto notepad (if you are connected via ethernet to your network, simply type in the IP address and then copy the CPU key from there; if you are not, manually copy the code)
    3a. If you are connected to the network page (for XeLL), click "download" next to the "Raw Flash" section
    3b-1. If you are not connected to the network, run flash360 on your Xbox (place on USB drive and launch using XeX menu, FSD, etc)
    3b-2. Press X to backup your NAND
    3b-3. Once completed, exit the application
    4. Power down the Xbox (and remove flash drive if you used flash360)
    5. Launch XeBuild GUI 2.091
    6. Click open next to source file and select your flashdmp.bin
    7. Click save next to output path and select the root of your flash drive (save as updflash)
    8. In the keys section, paste your CPU key
    9. At the bottom right of the screen, press check KV (this makes sure the CPU key is correct and will properly build your image)
    10. In kernel version, select 2.0.16537 (if not already selected)
    11. Double check build type, motherboard, XeLL, and SMC Hack (JTAG ONLY)
    12. Press "Generate Hacked Image"
    13. Once completed, unplug your flash drive
    14. Plug your flash drive into the Xbox (with the console OFF)
    15. Boot into XeLL (press eject button with the console off)
    16. The image should begin to flash (rawflash v4 initiated, etc)
    17. Once complete, power down the Xbox
    18. Unplug flash drive
    19. Power on the Xbox

    Congratulations, you have successfully updated to dashboard 16357

    Skip to step 9 if you already have a backup NAND and your CPU key
    1. Boot into XeLL (with the console turned off, press the eject button)
    2. Copy CPU key down onto notepad (if you are connected via ethernet to your network, simply type in the IP address and then copy the CPU key from there; if you are not, manually copy the code)
    3. Download Simple 360 NAND Flasher 1.2
    4. Place the Simple 360 NAND Flasher folder on your flash drive (after you extracted it from the download)
    5. Launch the default.xex inside the Simple 360 NAND Flasher folder (using xex menu, fsd, etc)
    6. Press X to backup the NAND
    7. Once complete, if the console does not shut down automatically, power down the console
    8. Unplug the flash drive from the xbox and plug into your computer
    9. Launch XeBuild GUI 2.091
    10. At the top of XeBuild, disable failsafe mode
    11. Switch to advanced mode
    12. Under Misc options, check off "Open Parameter/Argument editor prior to starting xeBuild/Python"
    13. Click open next to source file and select your flashdmp.bin (if you get an error, click yes)
    14. Click save next to output path and select the root of your flash drive (save as updflash)
    15. Under Build type, select "Freeboot (RGH 2.0)"
    16. Under Motherboard, select "Corona"
    17. In the keys section, paste your CPU key
    18. In kernel version, select 2.0.16537 (if not already selected)
    19. Press "Generate Hacked Image" (if you get an error, click yes)
    20. When the Parameter/Argument Editor opens, under "New Parameter", change "corona" to "corona4g"
    21. Click "Save the new parameters and run xeBuild/Python"
    22. Once completed, unplug your flash drive
    23. Plug the flash drive into your console
    24. Turn on with power button (DO NOT BOOT INTO XELL)
    25. Launch the default.xex inside the Simple 360 NAND Flasher folder (using xex menu, fsd, etc)
    26. Press A to flash the image
    27. Once completed, let the app turn off the console (You will mess up the console if you do not let it shut off by itself)
    28. Unplug your flash drive
    29. Power on the Xbox
    Congratulations, you have successfully updated to dashboard 16357

    I can't use Xell to flash because i don't have an eject button, so i just re-flash the updated nand to the xbox using Flash360. It's the same thing i had did to get from 9199 to 15574, and now to 16197, and it works fine. Just a bit of info for anyone who can't use Xell fully.

    Dashlaunch is already installed if you followed the tutorial. Network settings is in system settings. Download dashlaunch 3.03 if you need to configure it.

    Hello iMoses, very nice tutorial, i followed it to the letter and i got it right.
    The thing is that the avatar is missing in FSD and under the profile name it says "System Link Patched." I went to Setting - Profile - Edit Profile - Avatar and i get this error: Update Required A system update is required to use this feature.
    In the pack that i downloaded from Xbox Sky called "XBOX 360 SYSTEMUPDATE 16197" there is a archive "SystemUpdate_16197_USB" that contains "$systemupdate". Does this have anything to do with the avatar and other things ?
    Thanks.

    Yes. The official system update is the way to get avatars working. Put the $systemupdate folder on the root of your flash drive, pop it in the Xbox, and let the update run. It won't affect your console. If it doesn't work, your dashlaunch settings have system updates blocked, and you will need to disable that first.

    By "dashlaunch settings" you mean the settings in the FSD ? I have Dash version 2.2 Rev1072, but i didn't find any system update settings so i think i'm looking in the wrong place. I placed the $systemupdate folder on the root of my USB stick and when i turn on the console nothing happens, it loads FSD.
    Could you be a bit more noob specific for me ? :)
    Thank you.
    Thank you for clearing that up !

    I tried it and it still boots into FSD, the USB stick is a 2 GB FAT32 format.

    I see that $$ystemUpdate is only needed if u have dashlaunch configured to block system updates. So it should have worked one way or the other right ?

    This is my launch.ini file:
    [QuickLaunchButtons]
    BUT_A = Hdd:\FSD\default.xex
    BUT_B = Hdd:\FSD\default.xex
    BUT_X = Mu:\FSD\default.xex
    BUT_Y = FlashMu:\FSD\default.xex
    Start = UsbMu:\FSD\default.xex
    Back =
    LBump =
    Default = Hdd:\FSD\default.xex


    [Settings]
    nxemini = true
    pingpatch = true
    contpatch = false
    fatalfreeze = true

    I just did and still no luck... I have a Slim Trinity Xbox, does it matter what USB port do i use on the console ?
    Does it matter if Default = Hdd:\FSD\default.xex ?

    Google SystemUpdate_16197_USB by eLM.zip it's a zippyshare link. I don't know if it's RGH safe.

    I got the System Update working, it did not start automatically with the console, i had to go and open XeXMenu and then it required the Update. The folder was named "$$ystemUpdate". Finally....
