Please Note Below !! Only Select Aud_Clamp if your Jtag is being Updated with this method

Tick Aud_Clamp If You Are Using Your Stock NAND Dump When Building A New Image.

Please Note !! If You Dump Your Existing Hack Nand There is No Need To Tick Aud_Clamp As That Hacked Image Already Has Your SMC Configuration So Build As Normal

Now To Update To Your New Dash There is A Few Ways To Do This

You extract Flash360 Files to you USB Flash Stick.
Also you will put your your built Image renamed toupdflash.bin on your USB Flash Stick with the Flash360 files thats it,
its ready to flash your Jtag with the latest Dash..

OR

INFO: You can write the resulting image to the nand using this app's Write Nand button
However if you wish, you may copy the "Nandflash.bin" and "Xenon.elf" to a USB stick.
Place that in console and boot the console using the eject button.
(this will use rawflash and overcome any bad blocks you may have on your nand)

For Nand X Users

If Your Using The Nand X Just Click Write Nand In J-Runner And Select The Image Bin You Made.

Then POWER CYCLE YOUR XBOX As Explained Below

Updating Your Jtag With The New Dash Using Flash360


Plug your USB Flash Stick into your Jtag and power it up go to XeXMenu and press LB on your remote to find Usb:0 you will see the files you put on it earlier.

IMPORTANT TO DO THIS STRAIGHT AFTER IT SHUTS DOWN>>> POWER CYCLE YOUR XBOX

What is Power Cycle = when your Xbox 360 shuts down pull out the power supply from the back of your Xbox 360 + Leave it out for A Min.. there abouts...

Thats it your done power up and be Greeted with the new Dash and go through the new setup steps..

Next If You Decided To Install Dash Launch Manually


Unrar Dash Launch get the installer folder FTP it or USB stick to a place where you can run it eg. to the root of Hdd1 on your Jtag.

Next you get the launch.ini file that is also in Dash Launch rar file.
You can edit the launch.ini file to what ever you want as shown above
There is a sample_launch.ini to show you what the settings are or just let it the way it is at default.
You place that also on the root of Hdd1 on your Jtag


Installing Everything


Go into XEXmenu and go to the root of your Hdd1 or FreeStyle you should see DL302 folder and launch.ini.



Next you go into the DL302 folder inside that folder you will find a default.xex


Press the X button on your remote to run the Installer = default.xex ...


You are Greeted with on screen instructions on what to do and what to Patch all's you do is Enable or Disable.
And save to the launch.ini it will patch your Nand for what ever configuration you select on screen.
When your finished patching up everything you will need to restart your 360.


Custom Avatar Update Can Be Downloaded Google >> MS Update

1 - place the updater that matches this version on removable media, and
rename the folder from $Systemupdate to $$ystemUpdate


----OR----
2 - place an ini where dash launch can find it and set the noupdater option
to false - noupdater = false
****


NOTE that some games WILL prompt you to update the console if avatars are
not installed, this doesn't mean they have an update to actually put in, it
just means it needs avatar/kinect bins/resources to run

The tutorial is great. The only thing I fear is that if some Noob tried this tutorial(exactly word by word) on a console with an alternate SMC configuration, he will end up with an E79 because Jtag Tool will build a freeBOOT v0.4 image with the default SMC configuration.

Re: How to upgrade JTAG to newest dash 2.0.12611.0 & The Latest Dash Launch

The tutorial is fine as well is Jtag Tool. The thing is that I don't know what SMC configuration is exactly chosen if you select the "Aud_Clamp SMC" in Jtag Tool. If the option selects an SMC which changes both the Jtag Points i.e. Aud_Clamp and Open_Tray, then its fine. But if only changes one of the points, then it will be a problem.

Just as Azeem mentioned, I my self not sure if the alt SMC is for both points. It mentions in the change log that it uses alt SMC but it doesn't specify which ones. Also if there is a way to ID the SMC files within the latest version as other individuals who would like to use other points other than the audio_clamp/open tray can then alter their SMC to what ever points and then place the modified SMC files back into the Jtag tool.

Re: How to upgrade JTAG to newest dash 2.0.12611.0 & The Latest Dash Launch

i have the alt SMC with aud_clamp and open_tray. i used the default smc, and it gave E79, 1033. then i used the aud_clamp smc, gave E79, 1033. So if you have the SMC update both configs, it wont work. i also tried this... using the default smc and just making the FB image then updating and injecting the SMC back into the nand image with update my smc 0.2, didnt work, only when straight to xellous, not dash. idk whats the problem there. it did that on 2 of my non-xenon xboxes.

Re: How to upgrade JTAG to newest dash 2.0.12611.0 & The Latest Dash Launch

I've read that Jasper 256/512 have issues with updating. Does this method work on those?

Also, will I have to do the Microsoft update to get avatar/kinect support, and is applying that update safe?

Re: How to upgrade JTAG to newest dash 2.0.12611.0 & The Latest Dash Launch

I don't have ALt SMC.
Here's a weird thing. On my 360 the dashboard shows on board memory as unformatted, xexmenu shows 0.2 GB, but flash360 shows 512 MB. The guy who sold me the box sent a CD with it, and as far as I can tell, the original nand is 264 MB. Is my xbox a 256 or a 512?
Also is the fact that the resistor is removed going to be a problem? I've read conflicting answers on other sites, but I trust this one the most.

Re: How to upgrade JTAG to newest dash 2.0.12611.0 & The Latest Dash Launch

Load your original NAND dump if it's on the CD into 360 flash tool and it will tell you what size is your NAND.

Are you running dash 9199 at the moment? If so, just dump it via flash360. Then load the dump into jtag tool v2.12 and enter your CPU key, create bin and flash the compiled image to your console via flash360 again after renaming it to updflash.bin.

Done! You should have freeboot with kinect dash 12611 ...
