New Xbox 360
If you bought a new console in a large store, it means that no unofficial firmware and fribov on it is not installed. Prefixes with factory settings go to the stores, and people make any modifications (firmware and fribut) themselves or turn to private workshops .
The stores sell consoles with factory settings!
The only exception
On the Internet there are specialized online stores that sell already stitched consoles. But in this case, the store's website describes in detail what kind of firmware is installed on the console, and what additional functions this modification gives you.
So, if the store’s website does not indicate that the Xbox 360 is stitched (or freeboot is installed on it), then this is a prefix with factory settings. If you have already bought such a prefix, you can contact our service center for installation firmware or freeboot
Game consoles used
You can say the same about them as about new ones:
If the owner sells a stitched console, he will indicate this in the announcement of the sale of the Xbox 360.
But this is not always the case - the seller may not know exactly which firmware was installed on the console. In this case, the console will have to check.
But even if the seller of the used prefixes writes in the announcement that the console is stitched, or if it has a fribet, many people have doubts - is this really the case?
How to check Xbox 360 firmware
Learn the firmware on the Xbox 360 is very simple: take a disk with an unlicensed game and try to run it. If the game has started, then the prefix is stitched.
And if not, then, most likely, there is no firmware on it either. But there are options:
Errors when writing a disc . If you decide to record the game yourself, look at this article and check if you did everything right. If you are sure that the disk is healthy, then you have a prefix with factory settings. You can flash it in a specialized workshop.
Another firmware version . The latest Xbox 360 firmware is LT + 3.0 or LTU 2.0. Both of these firmwares are completely identical and run discs recorded under LT + 3.0. Always specify under which version of the firmware you buy a disk or download an image. With your hands, you could buy a console with the old version of the firmware, on which the disks intended for LT + 3.0 will not start. On your X-box 360 you need to install a new firmware.
DVD drive malfunction . Games may not start due to drive failure. But in this case there will be problems with licensed disks. Unstable drive is normal for used attachments. Contact a workshop for repair .
So, if your own console doesn’t run handwritten discs with games, bring it to our workshop where experts will solve this problem.
How to check for freeboot on X-Box 360
Here everything is the same as with the firmware: consoles with a pre-installed freibut are sold only in specialized stores. Regular electronics supermarkets sell only "vanilla" consoles with factory settings.
If you buy a prefix from your hands, the seller will most often say whether the freeboot is installed on the console or not. If a person cannot give you exact information, or you doubt the veracity of his words, then it’s very easy to check for freebies:
Try turning on your XBox with a drive button that opens the DVD tray. If the console is turned on, then freeboot is installed on it. At the same time you should have this picture:On some consoles with a Corona motherboard, the Xell boot screen may not be displayed.
Another sign of freibut is relatively long switching on of the console. The console with the factory firmware turns on in a few seconds. If freeboot is installed on the Xbox 360, then due to the peculiarities of loading this shell, the turn-on time can take up to 2 minutes, and sometimes even more.
And the most reliable way is to try to start the game from a flash drive. If the game was recorded right , but it did not start, so you have a prefix with factory settings. In this case Contact a service workshop to install freeboot on Xbox 360 .
