    There's no way for me to take this off and revert back to the original Dashboard, is there? :(

    I doubt it will reflash the Xbox. Didn't the only time disc drives ever got reflashed is because of the XDG3 update?

    I just flashed my Xbox Slim with the new Fall 2011 Update

    it does not flash your drive..

    to bad i lost my xbox live connection cause I am not in the beta program (...just a sucker for the word "beta")

    if anyone can switch his account to Jb2k on the survey it would be sweet.. else i can only wait and play offline :))

    here is new info from c4e about the flashed drives
    *UPDATE FROM C4ESPEAKS*
    Dae.bin Has Changed in Xbox 360 Fall 2011 Preview Dash (2.0.14686.0)
    Posted on 2011-11-10 by admin | Translate
    We’ve confirmed that the dae.bin has changed in the new Xbox 360 Fall 2011 Preview Dash (2.0.14686.0). It’s been reported by another team member that there now appears to be 2 tables of challenges, with a combined total of 192 challenges. c4eva has reported to the team that XGD2 and XGD3 backups are still booting under LT+ v2.0/2.01 (from team channel: [2011-11-10 08:58PM UTC] <c4eva> backups,xgd3 still booting). However, do not take this as a sign that everything is fine. We can confirm though that these changes will indeed necessitate new versions of and/or changes to Xbox Backup Creator, abgx360, and several other associated tools. It has also been confirmed by the team that drive fw’s are not affected. All the changes are currently being analyzed, and we’ll continue to update this post when further details become available.


    Speculation:
    This does not flash your dvd's drive fw (some have said)
    MW3 gives errors (didn't use fw max though)
    Yaka *says - Re: Update to the New Pre-Release Dash Backups are booting and are playable, now there are 2 dae.bin tables, one is the actual and another one for new challenges.

    I imagine it's adding checks for the discs that don't use LT Max. So it's probably not safe if you're using "burn until end of media is reached methods."

    You won't have it this week. It takes 3-5 business days, it took me 4 days after the tool was released to get it. They don't work Saturdays or Sundays.

    This is computers we are talking about. It doesn't need to be shipped anywhere.
    Official release 'should' be the 25th.
