Any way to manually download the new update

#1PhilUpOnYaPosted 3/5/2014 7:25:03 PM
My friend somehow was unable to get the new update to download despite being online as we speak. Does anyone know of a way to force the Xbox One to start the update manually? Thanks for any help we have been trying like crazy to figure it out.

Set the console to instant on instead of power saver and turn it off. The Xbox symbol will blink when the update is downloading, once it finishes the light on the power supply will go from white to amber then you now it's ready. Then once everything is done you can change your console setting again.

My xbox has never been on anything but instant and it still hasn't downloaded. Microsoft's process is a joke. They clearly are rolling out the update slowly and haven't told people.

first of all.. ms DID tell everyone the update was rolling out over the course of the week.. secondly, to force an update, follow these steps precisely:

1) turn you xbox to power save mode (yes i realize i said power save mode)
2) hold the power button on your console for several seconds until the console turns off
3) turn your console back on
4) turn your xbox to instant on mode
5) turn your xbox off again -- this time normally with "xbox turn off" command or controller
6) wait 5-6min (or so) and your console power light will blink.
7) once power light is done blinking, turn on your xbox

voila
