Last week’s Xbox One system update introduced a couple of usability features fans have been asking for. Along with the controller battery indicator and storage management functions, the patch introduced a bug that’s plaguing some users.
On its official Twitter account, Microsoft has acknowledged the existence of a bug that causes a black, flickering screen after turning on. Microsoft suggests cycling the power fully by holding your finger over the white touch-sensitive “button” for 10 seconds.
This is different than simply tapping that spot on the console, which for most users just sends the hardware into a low-power state. Another Xbox One update is planned for early March in advance of Titanfall’s March 11 release. The focus of the next update is on social features.
