    Digiex Exclusive: Xbox 360 NXE 2.0.8495.0 Dashboard Download

    PLEASE NOTE: There is two files, one that works on Xbox LIVE and one that doesn't.
    You will only get the avatars if you use the online installer.

    What it includes: (Some features doesn't work on the offline update, as they require Xbox LIVE)

    Parties - (Available Now, US Only)
    Everyone loves to Party! Check out the new and improved party reconnections and streamlined party invites.
    Party Reconnections - If a user is disconnected from a party inadvertently, they will be automatically reconnected to the party without any user interaction

    Gold Member Veterans - Been here long? Show it off! Anyone looking at your gamer card will now know how long you’ve been an Xbox LIVE Gold member. And who knows, there might be other perks for you, too. Thanks for sticking around!
    Subscription Notification - If your Xbox LIVE subscription is about to run out, you will now be notified when you sign into Xbox LIVE. No more surprises the next time you hop in to frag your friends.
    Fixing Invalid WLID's - If the Winodws Live ID (WLID) you provided has expired, you will now be prompted to update it the next time you sign into Xbox LIVE. (This feature coming later in the Preview)

    Account Recovery - (Available Now, All Regions)
    Many changes have gone into the account recovery process to speed it up and to increase reliability.

    Avatars - (Available Now, All Regions)
    Avatars have seen lots of love! Check out the new Marketplace and Avatar Props.
    Avatar Props - You can now equip your avatar with animated items they can carry around and interact with.
    Avatar Marketplace - Reflect your sense of style with the new Avatar Marketplace. Download and purchase premium items, including branded apparel from your favorite fashion labels and Xbox 360 games.

    Netflix - (Available Now, US Only)
    Now you can watch movies with your friends and find new movies to add to your Instant Queue without leaving your seat.
    Party Watch - Catch a show with your friends! You can now bring your party into Netflix and watch a movie or TV show together.
    Find Content Faster - You can now browse through New Releases and other genre lists based on the types of shows you’ve previously watched, all from the comfort of your couch.
    Improved Playback Experience - Improvements have been made to ensure a better experience when adapting to changing network conditions.
    Improved Presence -Richer information is now displayed in the Friends channel and in the Guide showing what you and your friends are watching.

    Video Display Options – (Available Now, All Regions)
    Various improvements have been made to make it easier for you to see your game in the highest resolution possible when using an HDMI connection.
    Display Discovery - This feature allows you to override audio and/or video formats independent of the display's capabilities.
    How it works - By default, the console uses the information provided by the display (via its EDID) to determine the audio and video capabilities of the device. However, often the data is invalid or malformed, hence compatibility issues are encountered. When disabling display discovery, the EDID of the display is ignored, thereby, enabling the audio and video settings to be overridden with the desired format regardless of display support.

    Who should use it? - The Display Discovery feature is available for DVI and HDMI connections in the Display settings section of System Settings in the dashboard. Please note that Display Discovery should only be disabled if audio and/or video related compatibility issues are encountered - otherwise, the output quality may be compromised.
    Monitor Support - Additional monitor resolutions are now available for HDMI connections.

    User Ratings – (Available Now, All Regions)
    User ratings help you find content that other people think is awesome!
    How it works - Every piece of game content on Marketplace can now be rated using a 5-star system. Just open up the details on what you want to rate and chose the Rate button. Each time you press the Rate button, you add one star to your personal rating.
    Sort by Ratings - Now you can easily find great games that you might have missed out on. Just visit Browse All in either the Games or Video Marketplace and twist over to the Top Rated games to see what everyone’s been talking about.

    Games on Demand – (Coming later in the Xbox LIVE Update Preview, All regions)
    Enjoy the convenience of finding and buying new games right from your couch. You can now download full Xbox 360 games over Xbox LIVE.
    Purchase - You can purchase a game through the Game Marketplace and download it directly to your console. This purchase is also stored in your purchase history so you can delete it and download it again if you run out of space.
    Manuals - Game manuals will be available for these games on Xbox.com so that you will still have access to the full manual that comes with the boxed version of the game.
    Digital Rights Management (DRM) - Games on Demand titles follow the same licensing rights as all other forms of downloadable content. Users are granted a user license that will allow the purchasing Gamertag to play the game on any console, and a console license that will allow anyone to play on the console that the content was originally downloaded to. No physical disc is required to play these games!

    UI Improvements – (Available Now, All Regions)
    Some parts of the dashboard have been slightly re-organized to make it easier to find the things you’re looking for.
    Indie Games - We listened to our community and have decided to change Xbox LIVE Community Games to Xbox LIVE Indie Games. We feel this new name better represents the independent spirit of these titles. User ratings are also available for Indie Games, which will allow you to share your rating for a game and use ratings from others to find new content. We hope these changes will help people discover more games they love.
    Achievement Browser - You can now launch a game directly from the Achievement browser making it even easier for you to max out your Gamerscore.
    Achievement Tracking - A new All Games view inside the Profile panel includes a summary of Achievements earned across all the games played and shows off all your completed games.
    Achievements - Check out the changes to the Achievement browser while playing a game. It’s now much easier to read through all the achievements so you can rack up the Gamerscore faster.
    Streamlined Navigation - New entry points in the Dashboard for Active Downloads, Redeem Code, Auto Sign-In (via Profile), Create Profile, and Recover Gamer Tag, so that these features are much easier to find.
    Voice Messages - When recording a voice message, a warning is now displayed if no audio is detected so you don’t accidentally send blank messages to your friends.

    Console Settings – (Available Now, All Regions)
    We’ve reorganized the Console Settings menu with fewer, more intuitive categories.
    Memory - Time stamps now appear in the Memory Area. This is particularly handy when managing saved games.
    Friends List Sorting - It’s now much easier to find your friends! Sort your friends list by Activity, Gamertag, or Online Status (default). Just press the Y button while you’re viewing the friends list in the Guide to change the sorting order.

    How to install:
    1.) Extract the contents of $SystemUpdate.rar
    2.) Put the $SystemUpdate folder in the root of a CD or USB Stick
    3.) Insert that CD or USB Stick into your Xbox 360 console.
    4.) You will be automatically prompted to update. Hit yes!
    5.) Once the update is complete. Your Xbox 360 will restart then boot up to the new dashboard. Enjoy!

    Excellent! You still remain my favorite Mexican. Any idea on when this is set to hit live? I would assume that all you need to do is appear offline right, but still be on live? Or can you not be on live at all?

    It won't allow you to sign in LIVE with this update in less your on there list. So You can't sign in to LIVE with this file. Not because its might get you in trouble or something but cause LIVE won't allow you to. Until its been publicly released.

    This file will only prove useful to members who are banned from LIVE or just don't have access to LIVE. If you have LIVE I wouldn't recommend installing this then as there is no date set for this to be publicly released.

    There was a bug that allowed you to be on XBL in the earlier update. I believe you had to delete your system cache and boot a game up then it would ask you to update click no then return to dashboard. Then boot up any game and it should at least allow you to play games online but not be able to see any friends online or be in any type of chat. Though this wasn't on purpose, it was just a bug that still allowed you to get on. So honestly I wouldn't test it as it probably won't allow connection.

    I have seen some small improvements, speed wise. When your in a party and you exit a game and go to the dashboard the lag doesn't seem to be near as bad. Overall it is a little more convenient but only really if you still have connection to live is it worth it.

    Several people got in so its not really a VIP list (including me). Also getting it this way is legit. When it comes to XBL they will offer this update for users to download.

    The update downloads more files from Xbox Live after installing it, I believe the updated avatars are included with that.

    Yeah all the Beta/preview people had multiple updates. I also found out why. When the update was first out it didn't really add that much at that moment. When they did one of the updates it added 360 games for Games on Demand and other little things.
