Updating xbox 360 through usb
The flash drive must support the FAT32 file system and have at least 1 GB storage, according to Microsoft.

You can connect two USB storage devices to your console at once.
STEP 1 - Install the latest software to your Xbox 360 console To configure and use a USB flash drive as a USB memory unit, your Xbox 360 console MUST have the Spring 2010 or later update.
Much like the PS4, prospective Xbox One owners can download the system's day-one update early to a USB stick.
The process is listed on Microsoft's support page as an "emergency offline update" procedure, and boils down to a few simple steps.
Update the Xbox 360 to which you want to transfer game content by logging into Xbox Live and automatically updating the console when prompted.
I downloaded the USB update, put it in the root directory of a flash drive, stuck it in and turned the console on.

Those looking to update their systems offline will need a USB stick with at least two gigabytes of space on it, and will need to format it as NTFS on their computers.
After checking their OS version on their Xbox One consoles, they can then download one of two compressed files to their computer from the Xbox support page, unzip them and copy the contents to the root of the USB stick.
