    I turn it on for the first time since Thursday, and its promps me to get a new update. I go to start it and it fails, sends me to the dashboard. I click Connect to Live so it appears again, click for update, and Fails. Constant Fail Loop, and the Live Support FAQ is worthless. This is the first time my 360 has acted weird. Any info would be nice to have that can fix my issue.

    I had this happen to me before. I would wait a couple hours, that's what I did and it worked for me. I expect that Live is getting flooded with downloads for the new update and the new Stranglehold demo.

    EDIT:
    The update itself is nothing important. It's just adding support for the wireless guitar.

    I had a similar issue with last fall's update.

    However, my nephew had one where it would never update (over two weeks) and he couldn't get online with any of his games.

    We had to format his drive.

    I also had this happen with the last big update. It worked itself out in about 4 or 5 hours... which sucked, but it was resolved.

    Lives working fine for me all morning, looks like it might be a problem with getting the update itself.
