Today, July 19th, 2011 will be another dashboard update for the Xbox 360 console. Microsoft has not shielded this one and has come out in the open and claims to what it will be for. As of now, it is being labeled as a "Mandatory update that prepared for subsequent growth of the service." I suspect all DVD drives will be re-flashed to stock firmware, again. I also expect AP 2.5 tables to spread to all games, just to try and screw us over more. They have been fairly slow in reacting to firmware in the past, but that may begin to change, as we are now getting updates every 2-4 months. I will continue to update this post as the day continues and more is learned about the update.

*Update 1*
The dashboard kernel is 2.0.13599.0. Like I predicted, the AP 2.5 tables were updated, although details on which games, if any more, are now included are not known at this time.

*Update 2*
The 6 AP 2.5 games seem to be the same that were on the 12625 dashboard. These include:
Call of Duty: Black Ops
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
Halo Reach
Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit
Assassins Creed: Brotherhood
Fable 3


*Update 3*
Write locks 9504/0227 Slim Drives



Discussion regarding the update includes when you get it, thoughts about it (what you like, what you don't), any mod related consequences, etc. Keep it relevant and clean.

Here are my sources which I will be sticking to for updates:

Probably yet another pointless update. I can't wait for the TV Streaming. But doubt that is this one.
