An early build of the next Xbox Dashboard update, which updates the system's interface and provides a wealth of new functionality, has been leaked onto the internet.

Though the update can only be installed on modded Xbox 360 systems, a number of shaky, fuzzy videos released by hacker xHaVoK87 show the new dashboard in action.

The demonstrated build is said to be a work in progress full of text errors, with promised features such as optional game installs and Netflix movie streaming not yet functional.

Microsoft is set to release the new dashboard, which includes the option to use the system's original blades dashboard, at some point this fall.

Two videos of xHaVoK87's efforts to get the hacked update working follow below, which we recommend muting first.
