    Xbox One Controller for Windows bricked after update via Xbox Accessories app


    Hi,

    i tried to update my xbox one controller for windows (i bought it standalone, i don't have a xbox one console) via the xbox accessories app (like it is mentioned on the support page). Unfortunately the update was stuck at 0% for more than 10 minutes, so
    i tried to resume it via the back button but the controller gets not recognized anymore since that. I also tried to reconnect it, start it via pressing xbox button + menu button for several seconds, but nothing happens. The controller was connected via usb
    cable, without batteries or a bluetooth connection.

    In the device manager the controller gets still recognized as xbox one controller dfu.

    Is there a way to unbrick it, without a xbox one console? Like a flash tool or smth. similar?

    Thanks in advance,

    Daniel

    :)

    Xbox One Elite controller not working anymore after (failed?) Xbox Accessories firmware upgrade

    Another victim here. Received my brand new Elite controller today, bricked after the update from xbox accessories app.

    It may have been windows 10 anniversary update drivers that caused issue. Anyone here is facing the same brick issue without the anniversary update on their windows 10?

    Hm, the support told me that neither he nor his colleagues have an idea for my problem and that i should ask the people at
    Xbox Ambassadors

    Which is here i assume?

    Otherwise the first solution was to ship the controller for a repair, but unfortunately it is already out of warranty.

    Therefore, does someone with a xbox one console, needs a second controller? The reset via removing the battery pack, and let it connected via cable for some time seems to work for most of the people. But this doesn't be the case if you connect it to a windows
    pc. I don't have a console to try it myself. Therefore i can't use the controller anymore it seems..

    Steeno,

    Since your controller has no operating system like your Xbox, there's no way to roll back the update you have already partially put on the controller. It is a known issue that if you do interrupt the network or unplug the controller during an update it will
    over write the firmware of the controller partially and not respond therefore after. If you just bought the controller within the last 90 days. You should still have stand alone warranty with Microsoft, I would recommend walking into a Microsoft store or

    contacting us
    to see if we can replace the controller. Its always good to maintain your proof of purchase for the controller.

    Have a nice day!

    XBOX accessories app on windows 10 bricked my controller

    Hi,

    I recently installed the XBOX accessories app on windows 10 1809. After connecting my xbox one controller via USB, the device appeared in the app. After starting a firmware update, the controller seems to switch off, and progress of the firmware update
    remains at 0%. The controller cannot be switched on, and windows device manager only reports a 'Xbox One-controller DFU'. In other words. It has been bricked by that nice little Microsoft app. Great.

    Is there a way to restore the controller, not requiring a Xbox, since I haven't got one?
    Also stoping xbox app & mixer & mixpot

    Xbox One Controller - doesn't update via USB cable on Windows 10

    This page has the detail on how to update your controller on Windows 10: https://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-on-windows/accessories/how-to-update-xbox-one-controller-windows-10

    You shouldn't need to click the connect button on the controller, just plugging it in via USB should be enough to recognize it by the computer and be able to update through the Accessories app.
