Are you getting message one or two?

#1.


If you get this message then you have a beta KV and the only way to fix the update message is to get a new KV.

#2.


If you see this message then you need to do the avatar update. I always update via a USB device, so I'll leave a tutorial below.

Step 1
Download the USB system update from here (remember to check that the system update you download matches your JTAG/RGH kernel version - go to System Settings>Console Settings>System Info and read where it says Dashboard: 2.0.XXXXX.0, where X = your console's current dashboard/kernel version).

Step 2

Extract the $systemupdate folder from the archive with 7-Zip or similar and rename it to $$ystemUpdate.
NOTE: YOU MUST DO THIS STEP FOR THIS METHOD TO WORK.

Step 3

Transfer the $$ystemUpdate folder (the one you renamed in Step 2) to the root of a FAT32-formatted USB stick (I recommend 512MB+).

Step 4
Connect your USB stick to your console and power it on and accept the update when prompted.

There are different messages shown based on what the system update is going to install.

If you see this:



Do NOT accept the update because this is telling you that the system is going to attempt a complete update which updates bootloaders and it will also burn eFUSEs.

If you see this:


It is fine to proceed with the update.
This is the system telling you that additional components are missing (Avatars).
The console will reboot once the update has installed successfully and you should now see Avatars and have your avatar data installed. :smile:

You may have to be in the MS Dash for it to work as sometimes FSD or Aurora won't recognize the Avatar update, so once you know it's the Avatar update you need, and you have correctly named the update to $$ystemUpdate.

Boot up your 360 into the MS Dash, and then insert the USB drive, it should say it's found an update, make sure it starts with "Update Required" and NOT "System Update and let it do it's thing.
