Yes.

You will need to download the latest 'Kinect' dashboard if you don't already have it. You can get this from Microsoft website if you are not connected to live (copy to usb stick and update from there).

But, the new dashboard has introduced a new copy protection, ap2.5. This means new games (Fable 3 and some others recently released) will not work on the new dash with the current version of flashed drives. A new one is being worked on at the moment so may need to flash your xbox again soon if you want these to work. Expect most new games to be ap2.5
If however your xbox has a Samsung DVD drive, this is unable to use ap2.5 so will not cause a problem.
As for Kinect games, so far none are ap2.5, so they will all work once you update your dashboard. (don't know if or when Kinect games will start using ap2.5)

Old Hitachi drives can still play any game without trouble, shame my 360 sounds like a hoover.

Yes Jeffry you can play all the Kinect games

Correct, other games that use ap2.5 will not work. Unless you have Samsung or as mentioned above some older Hitachi drives will still work.

Or wait for new firmware and flash again.

Also, not 100% sure, but 1.5 firmware may also need the activate.iso disc to be used in order to boot the newer wave versions. I'm sure someone can confirm that, or maybe you already know.

If you have not already updated to the 'Kinect' dash, then you should be able to play NFS (even though it is ap2.5). The older Dash will not perform the ap2.5 check. If you do update to 'Kinect' dash as it stands with the Benq drive NFS would not load.
So only update to 'Kinect' dash if you want to play Kinect games (and don't want to play ap2.5 games)

Once you have uploaded the new xbox dash can you roll back to the old one?

No, you can never go back to a previous version.

Ok thanks

i have an xbox with old pre kinect dash that uses the activate.iso disc to boot anything above wave 4 games (think the fw is 1.51) does the kinect dash block the use of the activate.iso ? i know of the update preocess to update to kinect via 3 updates that gets rounf the ap2.5 protection but am worried that it might block the use of the activate disc!!!
thanks for any advice
