Step 10: My avatar is only a silhouette!

Usually your avatar will be a blank silhouette and it will tell you, you need to install an update to use them.  All you need to do is download this update file, and place it on a USB flash drive, and plug it into the back usb port of your xbox.  Your 360 should detect it and install it.  Make sure you extract it first and the root of the drive is the $SystemUpdate folder.  You can also burn it to a CD to update.

If you're paranoid you will brick your console because microsoft is out to get you and ruin your homebrew, you can look at the picture about removing the r6t3 resistor to keep from having your fuses blown.

I also provided a mediafire mirror in case the microsoft one goes down.

<p>Also the last xbox I owned got red ring of death and I took it apart to try to fix it and it broke completely. Yeah, it still worked a little bit even though it had the red ring.</p>
<p>This would be simpler is I still had my old xbox 360 because it was like the one in the instructions I:</p>
<p>This is cheating. FYI you could be banned for this if caught BTW. </p>

<p>Can i do it on Dashboard: 2.0.17489.0?</p>
<p>I have Dashboard:2.0.17489.0</p>
My Kernel is higher I think, so does this mean I can't jtag or anything at all?
<p>Okay so this is really complicated... Can anybody do it for me? I'll pay... </p>
<p> I need some clarity here. Obviously this set up does not use an External Nand Reader-just a software program. I like that, however, is it better or more efficient to buy an external nand reader? I don't know if the cheapy Nands are fine with the USB port connections, or if I would need the way more expensive Nand-X? I would like to not spend $60-$90 on a Reader to do this project. Any thoughts here? </p>
