Xbox One Preview Program members receiving new update, fixes home screen freeze bug

For those of you involved in the Xbox One Preview Program (which is invite only at this time), Microsoft is rolling out a new update that fixes the home screen freeze bug when attempting to return to the home screen while playing a game. This update bumps the operating system build to xb_rel_1411.141023-2232.

This new update is available to all Preview Program members as of today. The update addresses the issue mentioned above, thanks to community feedback. If your console is in Instant-On mode, it will download and install the update and reboot to standby. Otherwise, you can manually start the update by navigating to Settings > System and selecting System Update.

This update fixes the following issues:

  • A fix for an issue some users reported where returning to Home from a game was unresponsive.

These are the known issues:

  • Some Achievement notifications may not appear while you are playing a game. The team is aware of the issue and working on a fix.
  • If you send a Party invite to 2+ friends signed in on another console, only one friend on that console will be able to accept the invite; the others will be kicked out once anyone else accepts. The team is aware and working on a fix.

Snag the update and let us know if you notice the new improvement!
