Xbox 360 Hacks and Mods: Update Creates Problems

Following on from our article which told you about the new Xbox 360 update which re-added the boot to disc option we are now informed that this update is bad news for some of you who take advantage of Xbox 360 hacks and mods as it also blocks modded 360’s from playing games.

Full details are scarce at present, however one the people I play online with has a modded Xbox 360, he installed the update and since then his Xbox 360 does not load games and shows a black screen saying something like “disc unreadable”. So far it looks as if only Call of Duty: Black ops, Halo: Reach and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare are affected (according to GetYourGadgetsGoing), however we wouldn’t be too surprised if more games are affected.

If you have a modded Xbox 360 you should play it offline so that your Xbox 360 does not get updated, if you have updated your modded Xbox 360 there is nothing you can do at present, chances are a new mod will be released in the future, but for now there is no workaround.

You can find out more about how this update has affected modded Xbox 360’s here, as we hear more we will do our utmost to keep you posted.

Do you have a modded Xbox 360? If so, did this update stop you playing any of the aforementioned games? Let us know in the comments section below.

I would love it if someone could take a photo showing the error that shows up and mail it to
