The Revenge of the Lucas | 8:02 am | 24 September 2004

How assy! Another reason to not get the new Star Wars DVD set: if you use your modded Xbox as a DVD player, beware — the special features disc will update the dash and remove your Linux.

The ‘StarWars Trilogy DVD’ (video/movie DVD) has an ‘Extra Special Features Disc’. If you try to launch this on your Xbox it will automaticly update your dashboard … NO confirmation will be asked. The bonus disc has extra features including a documentary on the star wars saga, footage from the making of all three films and a preview demo of the new ‘StarWars Battlefront’ Xbox game (that’s why there’s a default.xbe, dashupdate.xbe and update.xbe on the disc).

This information can be important for some people with older bioses (booting xboxdash.xbe), people using exploits or simply those who don’t want their dash upgraded.

We use the LinuXbox all the time, to play music off the server or whatever… bah. Fuck Lucas. Well, that’s fifty bucks I just saved!
