Xbox 360 Dash Update Breaks Online Access for Some

by Shane McGlaun

I mentioned before that the Xbox 360 was set to get a dash update this month. As gamers are apt to do, most went out and downloaded that update as soon as it was available. Now, a few people that installed the update have encountered a significant issue where they can’t get online afterwards.

The update somehow prevents the affected gamers from being able to log into their Xbox Live Profiles, and presents them with error code 801540B7. Without being able to log into the profile, there is no going online to play games. There is also no accessing the content purchased online either.

The real suck is that while Microsoft has acknowledged the issue, they are saying the fix will come as soon as possible. That is industry speak for “we don’t know when.” With Christmas in a few days, there will likely be some users still unable to get online and play their new games. Bah, humbug!
