Finally got it working after 5 tries...

Just downloaded it. Looks better. I hope it'll run better.

I cant even get online. Hoping they fix it soon.

EDIT: 10 min later, it allowed me to connect. Downloading the update now.

@ Criminal

It's terribly slow. More style than substance like all the dashboard updates. They make finding content more cumbersome and it's never very intuitive to use.

@StanLee

You might want to get your xbox checked. I just downloaded the update and it is incredibly more faster. The whole dashboard feels smoother, especially when you bring up the guide in the game.

@stanlee

yeah something is def wrong with your xbox, it is blazing fast for me.

and fyi explore it a bit more, finding content could be easier now.

also the dashboards have gotten significatnly better with each version, i think somebody is just trolling......

try signing into the xbox.com website with your credentials. see if you can send messages or see friends online and then try again on your console. worked for me.

seeing as this was posted 19 hours ago it is clear that the issue was overload on their servers. Trying to feed millions of users the new dash update was a bit of a strain.

ast forward to today and things are nice andd smooth. be fair, if you are in an area that is till experiencing issues then please be patient. 50+ million is allot to handle in a 24hr period.

i got up at 5:30 am and updated my 360 in only a few minutes and things were good to go as opposed to last night when I updated the kids 360. Even the zune marketplace wasnt working right then but this morning it was a ok.

I had two updates to download, got the new dashboard, but won't connect to XBL at all.

Did pretty much everything troubleshooting told me to and still nothing.

Sucks, I just got Child of Eden tonight too

crxss2119d ago

same thing happened to me, i just got on LIVE though. had to sign-in to xbox.com with my credentials and then that worked and was able to send messages via the website so i turned on my xbox and it connected. magic

mugoldeneagle032119d ago

Yeah, I ended up going through xbox.com support and had to resign the User Agreement and five minutes later everything was up and running.

If you have kinnect make sure its on before you get the update i got an error turned on kinnect and all was sweet.

After the update, my 360 wouldn't connect to live. I opted for the common sense approach and power failed it so it would reset itself. Works just fine now.

SSultan2119d ago

I couldn't get online. Tried 10 minutes later. Got online. Then I got an error before the update. Now I can't get online. I want to watch Netflix!

Recover your gamertag, and accept new T.O.S. problem solved.

vishant1012119d ago
