I bought an Xbox one X, as a console that cannot update, and indeed I think I am on an irreparable console.
Let me explain: After installing a hard drive in the console (because I bought it without a hard drive), and having used this tutorial (haa links are disalowed ! His name is " Install firmware on Xbox One S" from ifixit) to install an Xbox OS on it, I get a message during the first configuration (after have chosen the language) “Your network is good, but the Xbox service has some problem” (translated from French) before having the error “0x80072F8F 0x00000000 0x00000201” accompanied by "There was a problem with the update ".
-I specify that my console is well connected to the internet, she says it herself, but the problem seems to come from the Xbox servers. And yet no! (Xbox servers status website says that all is OK). I have been doing tests since yesterday, and no success.
-I tried to try the updates by being connected to my WI-FI, by being connected to my wired router, to use a hotspot from my 4G mobile plan, but no success.
-I also tried the “hardware reset” by unplugging my console from the electric (the 220v in France) and waiting 30 seconds, even one night, but no success.
-I tried to update the system offline via USB stick three or four times, and no change.
-Finally, I replaced the hard drive twice by following the tutorial given previously but the console still does not work.
I even contacted Microsoft through their “virtual agents”, their service is very good, but the only thing they could tell me was to pay for a console repair out of warranty, but too expensive! (around 220 EUR)
I still have something to try, but I could use YOUR help!
When starting the Xbox for the first time, it is required to have an internet connection to check for updates among other things, but if someone gives me the files of an OS pre-installed from another Xbox (without personal data obviously), I could put them on my Xbox hard drive and eventually access the main interface, and retry updating or just enjoy my Xbox offline !
Thank you very much for your help,
I hope you have a good one.
