Go to settings, account, download history, and clear cache. This will remove all game and system updates, and should permit you to re-download the latest system update. This will not clear any of your purchased items, but will require you to re-download any game updates the next time you play them (a quick process). Clearing the cache is a "No Risk" process and will help clean up your system.

SOURCE: Update failed xbox 360

Simply hold down the sync button before turning on the console. Continue to hold the sync button until the console boots to dashboard completely. This will clear any failed updates. If you still have this issue after performing this you will more than likely need to send your console in for repair.

My xbox 360 cant update and gives me an error 42fe-4451-1381-0300-c800-0036 help how to solve.

Consoles do this if they've been tampered with, according to Microsoft's help page. In bad news, you can't fix it.

In good news, you can still play your games offline. Restart your console and select "No" when the update prompt comes up.

You won't be able to use Xbox Live, but you'll still be able to use your console to play local games.

Its give me a status code

Hello Mark Swift,

It seems as if the status code "3151-351f-b800-0402-c000-016b" is an error code resulting in a failure of receiving an update directly into the cache of the console. This also may be the cause of trying to install custom firmware. I cannot guarentee this will work, but try downloading the Xbox update from onto a CD and inserting it into your Xbox console to download it. If this does not work, message me back, I will keep track of this problem.

P.S. I cannot provide you with a direct link to the update because is not working on my laptop wirelessly. Sorry!

When i insert fifa 2012 pirated disc it asked SYSTEM UPDATE. when i click update it started to update.after sometime update stopped and it shows 'SYSTEM UPDATE STOPPED.AND STATUS CODE:--3151-XXXX-XXXX

Probably because its a pirated game, and you are trying to run it off of a modded xbox. Try disabling the mod updating your mod, and 360. Then try playing the game.

My xbox 360 was updating and it stoped and froze, its says my system update failed status code 3151-351f-b380-0402-c000-0001

According to the Xbox Support page, you should contact Microsoft about this error.
Other than that, I would suggest trying to update using different methods. If the problem occurred while updating from Live, try putting the update on a disk or flash drive. Here is a link to the update page where you can find the downloads for disk and flash drive.
Good luck.

I had change of heart, the guys over at 360mods prevailed on me to release this for free.
So for all to see , here is how you fix the update failed error in all cases:

The error seems to happen when the 360 is unable to read from the update source during the update. The only time I have actually seen it occur was when updating from a backup, which is a common cause Ive read about. The other common cause is an onset of RROD during the update. Im not sure what causes the hard drive error. Either way, the solution is simply to supply the 360 with the correct update file either on a CD or a USB stick. Now here's the rub, it has to be the exact same update file as the one that failed. Not a problem since I've made a nice torrent file with all of the updates to date here:


The version number is shown at the bottom of the error screen. PV is for previous version and CV for current version. Just put the file matching the current version (the one you are updating to) on a USB stick, (i.e. E:/$SystemUpdate) put it in your 360, and power up. If you have the right one it will finish updating and boot to the dashboard. Voila.

This has worked for me on 7 consoles so far. 3 of them said they couldn't detect the hard drive and the other four the update disc, so this seems to work in all cases. I hope this can help some people out.
