Updating my xbox
One of the features we shipped with the latest Xbox 360 dashboard update today is what we call Tenure. If you were a member of the Summer Update Preview and created your Gold Account on an Original Xbox console while living in Canada, your tenure won’t update to the proper number of years until your account’s next “birthday”. Changing your gamertag won’t change your tenure, just like it doesn’t change your gamerscore. This is a number that appears when you are looking at Gamercards on your Xbox 360 console. For example; if you created your account on October 19th of 2003, your Gold Tenure will display properly on October 19th of 2009. I changed my gamertag 2 years ago because I didn’t like it.
If you have a Windows 10 PC or Xbox One, or just know someone who does, that’s your best bet for updating the firmware.Search for “Xbox Accessories” and install the Xbox Accessories app created by Microsoft.This is separate from the main “Xbox” app included with Windows 10.If you use Windows 10, this process is fairly easy–although you’ll have to go out of your way to update the controller’s firmware.First, open the Store app included with Windows 10.
