You have to get internet back. And let it finish updating. No way to reverse it.

The easiest way to update your console software is to connect to Xbox LIVE. To update your console by using Xbox LIVE, all you need is an Internet connection.
  1. Connect your Xbox 360 console to the Internet.
  2. On the console, go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings.
  3. Select Network Settings.
  4. Select Wired Network or the name of your wireless network, if you are prompted to do so.
  5. Select Test Xbox LIVE Connection.
  6. Select Yes if you are prompted to update the console software.

There are a few things you can try; Clearing your cache, you can download the update on your PC through xbox.com and the transfer it using a USB thumb drive. If that still doesn't work, I'd try contacting xbox support, they might have a solution for this issue by now.

Can't connect to xbox live, connected to network and internet, but as soon as test goes to xbox live connection comes up with updates needed, click continue to update, the green bar goes so far after about...


Try plugging the xbox straight into the modem and not the router, if it still happens, reset your modem and router and try again. Xbox live can be sketchy at times. Also the traffic to xbox live because of the holidays can sometimes screw with the updating and such.

My son saved money and bought a Xbox 360 Arcade. He did not realize that he could not play his xbox games on his new system. Is there an upgrade to allow old xbox games to be played on on the xbox 360


Some game are compatible with the new xbox 360. They are called backwards compatible and you do need to flash upgrade the OS on the new xbox 360 system.

You need to go to the xbox website and go to support and download the flash update then burn it to disk and put it on the xbox to update the software. Again not all old games are compatible with the new xbox system. If your buying used games like I do make sure it says bc next to the title before buying them.
Here is the link to the upgrade

I think you need to ring your internet provider and they will enable xbox live from their side. Its fairly simple and they will know what your talking about.

Connecting to xbox live failing


The xbox live board is down,so if you pass all tests except the xbox live one,this is the problem.I rang them and they said over 50% of users are having this problem.Its because so many people went on it over Christmas and the system got overloaded.They said they're working on it and it should be up and running in a week or two. ~~PS~~ I rang on the 12-1-08 so it should be up by the 20th,its not your fault,the servers down.

I cant get an update for xbox live


first try resetting your connection, unplug your modem or router for 30 seconds and see if you get a connection. after that it would be a software issue. more likely its failing to update because you have NO internet signal. try also, re-configuring your network IP settings which is usually automatic- with no disk in or through the dashboard. if you can get into dashboard try manually putting these in.. but like i said try unplugging your modem for at least 30 seconds to update the IP. good news... if microsoft has to repair it theres a good chance youll get a brand new system though it might take a few weeks at least. is this with a brand new system?
