Here is new dashboard version. But be aware. Installing it disables an Live! connection till this officialy comes out november.

Seems allright I think..

I dont give a **** how it looks imo. Just how it works

To be honest, it's probably just a beta.

installed it. It looks worse than last dash. Its all white! But it works smoother, have new sounds and nice animations etc, but white kills my eyes!

Maybe its my mind playing trick on me, but I think my afatar got taller and grown up or something....

and yep... No live. So I will have to wait for official non leaked dash

I kinda like it, but after awhile MS always clutter up every dashboard.

Wonder what it looks like with the previous dashboards themes applied?

You probably need a modded 360 to install it, don't you.

Well have fun not being able to use the Live subscription you paid for.

You probably need a modded 360 to install it, don't you.No, USB stick is all you need, but yeah, forget about Live for two months or so.

I love the new look, especially the new opening logo. Looks slick and snappy. All existing themes will work just fine. Avatar got redesigned mainly for Kinect.

Assuming is disables what has been mentioned in the thread, it is quite a while to wait till the announced Kinect release date (assuming they get released together) to get back to the norm.

I cant wait till they gave away the Kinect controllers for free...since they are so FTL along with the Move controllers!!!

haha, light and clean? it looks childish and bloated.

PS3 interface looks much better.

I wonder if these updates will trickle to GFWL.

Doubt it.

Probably not. GFWL seems to be its own separate entity that just accesses the same service.

The PS3 interface may look better but has been organized by a complete and utter moron.

Anyone get this? It went live Monday. I totally forgot about it.

It's really slick. It's definitely smoother and faster. It's very similar to the last one, just "flatter" and easier to read.

Updating now. Damn this is a long process lol. The new opening splash screen is interesting...

Meh, it doesn't start the disc on startup (a known bug I think) and it is way too bright. Playing Halo at night where the menus are all purple, blue and gray and then pressing the guide button gives you a blindingly bright menu.

Downloaded it Monday night. Love it.
Netflix is wonderful now with the new interface and even search! (nana2)
I always thought it was pretty stupid to have to go get on the computer, find a movie to add to the queue then get back on the xbox, refresh the queue then find the movie in the queue just to watch it. Thank God that is over now.
Zune is much improved now too.
The only con is the rather bland XBOX screens but then again it seems faster so that's better.
