    Quick question. I just got my xbox jtagged and updated to the newest dash 13599. If I use the official update from microsoft 13599 to update my hdd for avatars is it safe. I just don't want to mess my jtag up. Thanks.

    Yes, if you use the official system update for the dashboard you are on it will just restore the avatars / kinect data.

    Sorry to sound so noobish here but i too have just updated from a realy old dashboard to 13599 so if i reinstall 13599 official update from MS will that make my jtag a non jtag even though i have 13599 dash running already but i too do not have the avatar option available it says i need an update.

    Again sorry if it sounds noobish im just scared of ruining my jtag which i adore so much.

    TIA.

    As you are on dash 13599 you can run the official MS 13599 update, just never run anything newer than the dashboard you are on.

    I've been searching for this answer but cant' find it anywhere... i have a jtag on 13599 dash. just bought a 1tb upgraded hard drive and now i have no avatars. found a guide that indicates i must format drive and then update with official ms dash 13599 dash to get avatars and kinect. BUT i'm worried about doing the official update and having it reflash my drive... i know this official update reflash non jtags drives but i'm not sure if it updates jtag drives...

    i know with a jtag i dont NEED a drive however i have a large collection of disks that i might want to rip in the future...

    any advice?

    Yup you can.


    I don't believe it does as your not actually running the system update part that does, your simply restoring the avatars / kinect data. The update will just presume your drive is flashed as you are already on 13599.

    Yes it will work fine, just use the 13599 update to restore the avatars.

    Are you sure? Because if you search "Backward compatibility" on official microsoft site they say "Update to last dashboard and play all your games"!
