Gamespot leaks Xbox 360 dashboard update? GameSpot has accidentally posted a video of the Xbox 360's spring Dashboard update and it has made its way to YouTube.
Although no one has confirmed the update or the leak, you can watch the video here (it does not look fake):

According to the video, here are a few of the updates:

-Will be offcially released May 7th

-Your contacts will integrate Windows Live Messenger, and show joinable session status

-Your live messenger contacts can see what game you're playing, and your gamertag as well

-Marketplace will "have its own blade, which will be skinned independent of your theme"

-You can watch partially downloaded movies

-Other updates include "Users will now get inline achievement updates", "Low-power download mode and auto-shutdown", "You can text chat messenger six friends playing games watching movies" and finally a few tweaks to the interface.

You can't reflash a flashed drive with the newer firmware available, even doing so the way you originally did. The drive would need to be unlocked. I think MS can't do anything about the flashed drives and is just moving on with newer mobo's and optical drive hardware.

couldn't MS make a boot flash program that reboots the system and flashes it?

Altho if they did that they could "fix" the frimeware hacks :X

It'd be cool if they added a feature to allow you to set your 360 to show you offline to specific people on your freinds list besides it showing you offline to everyone.
