XBox 360 Updates without joining XBox Live?

Is there any way of downloading XBox 360 Updates without joining XBox Live?

A few months ago i downloaded the Backward Compatability Update from a website and burned the update to a CDRW and installed it onto my 360 so i can play the old XBox games.

I now want to install the new Multimedia Interface and be able to play AVI and DIVX files. So is there any websites out there where i can download the updates and install them by burning to a CDRW again and installing them via that?

I've searched the net but can't find anything :-(

Thanks for any help

Ok, thanks for the advice.

Trouble is my 360 is all setup in my living room and there's no phone line there and i havent got a wireless adapter, looks like i'll have to just live with it like it is for now :-(
You can download the update - At least you can for the new NXE dashboard / Autumn update which I would have thought would include any previous updates.

I downloaded and extracted to a USB key, booted up xbox with it in and applied the update.

Just searched the net and after reading this:

It doesnt look like i'm going to be watching DIVX and AVI films without connecting to XBox Live :cry:
I have a flashed console (1.4) and don't go online.If i update to the new dashboard by burning to disc,will this have any other effect on my console? It won't brick it or do anything nasty will it?

No you will be ok, mines chipped and i've now got the new interface (using the download above) which looks really good and the game i'm currently playing works fine. With the new update you can also load the game onto your hard drive so now more disk spinning noise :thumbsup:
Cheers mate:thumbsup:
Will give it a try later.
