Microsoft issues harmful NXOE update which affects some users (update: possibly fixed)

Earlier today, Microsoft appears to have issued a 2 GB big update for participants in the NXOE preview program. This update took people by surprise as for most of them it fails to install. If it actually manages to install, all it does is add insult to injury. Your console gets reset back to factory settings and your dashboard gets rolled back to the old one. People that already installed this update will notice that their participation status in the NXOE program reverted back to ‘Pending’.

It’s important to know that this update doesn’t affect everyone in the preview program, some people report not seeing anything while others see the update queued.

Microsoft hasn’t put out any official statement related to this update yet. Our advice for now is to not accept any updates and wait until this one gets pulled.

UPDATE: As of 10:25PM (GMT), most people seem to have no problem after installing this update. Thank you for leaving your feedback in the comments 🙂
