Xbox 360 Update Step by Step Guidance
You can easily install the update by the following two methods, and after update, you can get the Xbox Live services freely and enjoy your games.
- Install from Xbox Live
It’s the easiest way to update your Xbox as long as you have Internet connection, all you need to do is connect your Xbox 360 to the Internet.
- Press the “Guide” button on your screen, then select “Settings”
- Select “System Settings” and then select “Network Settings”
- Choose “Wired Network” or your wireless network
- Select “Test Xbox Live Connection”
- Wait for a second, select “Yes” to update the software if prompted
Note: If any connection error occurs, go to the Xbox Live Connection Error Solution.
- Install from a Game Disc
When you could not access the Xbox Live temporarily, your console might fall behind the update process. If the game disc you insert includes a newer version than your old one, then it will prompt you to update when you start that game.
Note: If you don’t want to update currently, the game disc will prompt you to update the next time you launch it. Some Kinect games require the software update to work properly.
These are the most convenient ways to update your console when you can access the Internet. Besides, you can also update your Xbox 360 by coping the update to a USB flash drive or burning it to CD or DVD. You can read the detailed steps in the new page of Reference Link 1.
