Microsoft provides 'offline update' for those with server issues *update*


Update: Microsoft has now removed this page and provided the following statement:

“The site was not an alternative way to take the Day One update and customers still need to connect to Xbox Live for the update,” a spokesperson said regarding the pull. “Because of the complexity of this customer support process we’ve actually removed the page and we will work with customers directly to make sure they have a smooth experience.”

Original: Microsoft's provided a precautionary "Emergency Offline Update" method, allowing you to downloaded the launch day system update to a USB stick so that it can be read by the new console.

To install the update, you will need a USB flash drive formatted as NTFS with a minimum 2 GB of space, as well as a PC with an internet connection and a USB port.

You'll also need to check what OS version your Xbox One is running and download the appropriate update from the Emergency Offline Update site

To carry out the update simply insert the USB drive into a powered-off Xbox One, then switch it on while holding the Eject and Bind buttons. This forces the Xbox One to look for a USB drive update instead of booting up.

The full list of instructions, as well as the update file, can be found here.

very sly microsoft, they've probs had this hidden away for a while but have only just released it so they can ban the consoles which connect up to live to do the update.
