360 Content Download Trick, save yourself half the download
 
You can save yourself 50% of your download time with the following steps, works for any download that starts off at 5%

1. Initiate a download, watch for the 5% indicator.
2. When the indicator hits 6%, cancel the download.
3. Re-initiate the download at 50%



I have no idea how it is that this works....The only guess I have is that as they release new content, the 360 must cache some sort of database from Live, and save 50% of the files in the locked 13 gig portion of the 360's HDD.

GAMES AND MOVIES ARE FULLY PLAYABLE AFTER THE DOWNLOAD COMPLETES !! 8)

yup...lol it works. im not sure why, but i did that on the first night I got it, as a mistake, but then i caught on. Helps out when your downloading a game demo at 1 gig :lol:

What kind of stuff can you download? I dont have one yet but hopefully sonn I will have one.

Vitulla 12-01-2006 01:06 AM

seems to be a number glitch. After you exit and come back on, it satys at 50% for a while...so its a glitch

Well it does seem to help some. This is good no?

I noticed that one night when I hit the cancel button by mistake. It stinks you can only do it once, I have tried to do it twice and it starts back at zero.

does it work on european consoles if it does i can tell my cousin about it because he has one (360) and he always downloads stuff so is it ? :roll:

the_serious_gamer 07-04-2006 11:35 PM

Well make sure to tell him then. I am assuming that it works for all 360 versions.

svalbard 21-07-2006 04:02 PM

that is neat.

corim123 02-08-2006 10:53 AM

If only I had a 360... This seems very cool and time saving. I'm sure if you google you can find out why. But who cares it works.

svalbard 02-08-2006 12:05 PM

i wonder how it works too

Woah, thanks. But we should keep it under our hats or they might fix it.
