    Hey guys, i have just gotten an xbox one which has come with the lowest base firmware. When i start it up it wants to connect to the internet which i dont want it to do, id like to get to the dashboard on the lowest firmware i can. Can i use the USB update method with the day one patch on it and install that and achieve what i want from that? I'm hoping if thats the case i can get to the dash without updating to the most recent firmware as id like to keep this thing as low as possible for future exploits.


    Can anyone shed some light?

    Thanks guys.


    ps, have a happy new year :)

    Hey, this tutorial will show you how to update the Xbox One from a USB memory stick: Xbox One System Update with a USB Memory Stick.

    You then want this update: Xbox One System Update 6.2.10210.0 Download (Launch Day Update).

    That is basically how the console was on launch day, I imagine you will not be able to play a lot of games and to be quest honest that dashboard is horrible. You can certainly appreciate how much the console has evolved though, or leave it on a low update in case any exploit is released in the future.

    Thanks for the reply, I purchased this one to keep on a low firmware for when a kernel exploit gets released. Plugged it in and it wouldn't let me into the dash with out Internet so in glad someone grabbed that day one patch while it was up on micro$hafts website :)

    We should have all the major updates on here, a couple of minor updates are missing where the monthly updates was released, then a smaller update a few days after. When an exploit is released the system update that is exploitable should have been archived anyway! - Xbox One System Update Downloads.

    I have a feeling it will be a long time until the Xbox One is hacked, however never say never. I'm certainly looking forward to what it might bring.

    Hehe yup, I have one on current and another that's launch day. Never used to be able to buy multiple stuff for Exploiting when I was growing up so I'm making sure I get on board early now I'm able too.

    Having multiple consoles to exploit when growing up was never really a problem for as consoles back then didn't really get online updates. Not that I really owned many consoles as I was a PC gamer back then.

    I did have the classic Xbox hacked with a 120gb hard drive, which was huge back then! I also GBA which I had a flashcard for, that had some pretty good homebrew back then. It was painfully slow writing stuff to the flashcard over a parallel port connection!

    It is pretty much mandatory to have two consoles a lot of the time now these days though. However i did get a Wii U last year and have managed to keep it on 5.3.2, likewise my 3DS is on 9.2 and is running CFW now.

    As i use my Xbox One online i'd probably buy a second console once it's eventually hacked.

    I did recently buy my mum a 3DS, this came on firmware 2.1.0-4E which was released back in 2011! So not bad for a brand new 3DS in 2015!
