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)

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

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.

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

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.
