Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.

If you're a modder, and maybe even if you aren't, you could be in danger of turning your 360 into a brick, courtesy of Microsoft's latest firmware update on the 360. Tread with caution and read the link below.

For what it's worth, a coworker of mine got the "3 lights of death" on her hubby's xbox 360 immediately upon rebooting after the update finished. Dunno if she was modded, or just had some suspect hardware or if its all just an unfortunate coincidence.  Either way, you've been warned.

edit: here's yet another site link, with the same basic story:  http://www.xbox360fanboy.com/2006/11/01/update-brick-your-360-speak-up/

I just downloaded the update for August 7th and I to suffered the perils of the ring of fire. I unplugged my live connection and it worked for awhile, however this is the third time my xbox has done this to me.
