FIX FOR XBOX FREEZING ON START UP
For anyone experiencing a “freeze up” upon start up of your Xbox console (meaning Xbox fails to load its dashboard and hangs on profile sign-in), following the instructions below:
Xbox is currently working on fixing a major issue with its auto sign-in feature, so relax, your Xbox is not toast.
Turn off Xbox console.
TURN OFF HOME ROUTER.
Turn on Xbox.
Your dashboard should now load.
From the Dashboard, navigate to SETTINGS.
Find and TURN OFF AUTO SIGN-IN for Xbox and Messenger (if applicable).
Turn off Xbox.
Turn back on home router.
Wait for router to initialize.
Turn Xbox back on.
Load a game.
Now sign into your profile from within the game by pressing the Xbox Home button and choose your profile.
This is a temporary fix. Microsoft is currently working on a patch that will be downloaded to your console when ready. This will allow you to turn back on the auto sign-in feature.
