    Method 1 - Should work no matter what region you are in
    This should work if you do it at the times specified below. If you are unable to do it at this time, then I recommend you use my original method 2, which is guaranteed to work no matter what time you do it, and will get you two other achievements with no additional effort. If it didn't work at that time, try again 24 hours later. You can also try this at an earlier time, as that has worked for some people. This may not work between 25th - 31st December.

    If you are doing this during a leap year, try the first day, then if that fails try the following day.

    For this to work, you should start at 5:05pm (17:05) UTC+0
    1:05pm CST/2:05pm CDT
    2:05pm EST/3:05pm EDT
    5:05pm GMT/6:05pm BST
    2:35am ACST/3:35am ACDT
    5:05am NZST/6:05am NZDT

    The day of the week you need to do it on changes each year:
    2014 Monday
    2015 Tuesday
    2016 (until 29th February) Wednesday
    2016 (after 29th February) Thursday
    2017 Thursday
    2018 Friday
    2019 Saturday
    2020 (until 29th February) Sunday
    2020 (after 29th February) Monday
    2021 Monday
    2022 onwards - it will be the day of the week that the 4th January falls on.

    If you live in on a continent with a UTC+6 or greater timezone (Asia, Australia), the day of the week you need to do it on will be:
    2014 Tuesday
    2015 Wednesday
    2016 (until 29th February) Thursday
    2016 (after 29th February) Friday
    2017 Friday
    2018 Saturday
    2019 Sunday
    2020 (until 29th February) Monday
    2020 (after 29th February) Tuesday
    2021 Tuesday
    2022 onwards - it will be the day of the week that the 5th January falls on.

    Somehow my solution became the top rated for a time and I have no idea when that happened. The last time I checked it was like the fifth one, so apparently a bunch of other solutions were culled by the site or deleted by their owners.

    Now under a normal situation, you would boot the game once a week for 12 consecutive weeks. Obviously this is a crock so everyone has been trying really hard to figure out where this game delimits one week from the next, so that someone could just swap their timezone back and forth to complete this achievement in a single day.

    The universal conclusion on how to determine the day and time you need to do this on: "fuck if I know". Whatever date methods the developer is using to determine week starts/ends is arbitrary and changes every year. Making matters worse is that a day that works in one country tends not to in another, without any obvious correlation between them like time zones. There is no way for anyone to know without simply busting their ass to experiment on their own.

    So, the best we've got is for some poor bastards to figure out what the current year's magical day is on their own and hopefully share their results with the rest of the class in the comments. Your only remaining option is, as HolyHalfDead puts it, "betting on every horse in the race" by starting the game 7 or more times per day for a week, though anyone who can grasp odds and sports betting knows that you would lose a spectacular amount of money this way (or in this case, time.)

    In the end, I'd say just bite the bullet and boot the game once a day for three weeks. Even the methods that are supposed to be rock solid and work 100% of the time are rigmaroles (I mean, just take a glance at any other solution for this achievement) that do not work on certain days, at certain times, when certain planets are aligned with each other, or when you're not standing on your head with a strawberry ring pop stuck in your ass.

    JamPound32It will be Tuesday if you are before 11am as it will go 24 hours behind when you switch zones.

    Mobius EvalonI'm getting really close to deleting this solution. The code is apparently arbitrary garbage written by a bunch of amateurs and it would take nothing short of viewing the source or decompiling to figure out what's going on. I mean shit, just look at all the problems people have unlocking multiplayer achievements.

    NOTE: For this achievement, the people who have posted solutions are correct (FOR THE YEAR IN WHICH THEY WROTE GOT THEM)

    **IF YOU ARE TRYING TO GO FOR IT IN 2010**

    The day to go for this achievement now in 2010 is by using WEDNESDAY and THURSDAY. If you have a choice Wednesday is preferred, as the way to do it, just use the time zone change on the dashboard-system preferences-console settings-clock-then change the time zones from -12 to +14. MAKE SURE that the dates and times are changing as well as that the time is changing to either Wednesday or Thursday. This achievement took me about 10-15 minutes. I had to wait until the time zones would not set me back to Tuesday.

    As a little side note for people who attempt this achievement in the years to come, just push the days forward. Therefore, in 2011, the days will be Thursday and Friday. And so on and so forth.

    Since people are having problems with the new year, I can ONLY assume the dates have been push forward another day. It could very well be THURSDAY and FRIDAY. Read the guide carefully and be mindful of the year. It WILL work if you count the calendar ahead from this guide.

    Post comments below if you are having difficulty with this and I'll be glad to help.

    EDIT 3/21/11:
    Judging from the comments, this achievement appears to be working on Thursday at 1:30 GMT. Hope this helps, if you need any other advice please comment and I'll get back to you

    EDIT 12/30/11
    It seems that this now works at 18:30 GMT on Friday. Therefore it is no Friday-Saturday

    The intended way to get the achievement is to boot up the game one day a week over the course of three months. What this and other solutions suggest is abusing the timezone setting of your console to change the date your console reports to Xbox Live, because setting it enough timezones ahead or behind your real one can place you temporarily in a different calendar day. This is a significant boon because if you can target the specific day Brothers in Arms decides the week begins, you can finish this achievement in 30 minutes. For instance, if the game considers 6 AM Monday to start a new week, you can boot up your console at 6:10 and get one week's credit, then set your timezone back an hour to 5:10 and get credit for another week, then set the timezone back up an hour and the game thinks it's an entirely new week at 6:10 again; repeat until the achievement pops.

    It's simple enough in theory, but the specific day and time is a point of contention and completely up in the air in light of a complete lack of any repeatable theses and wildly varying reports of success. The day of the week you need seems to change with the console region and your country/location, while nobody has nailed down the specific gateway time to attempt it.

    To nutshell the entire thing, it's tons less hassle to simply slot out ten minutes for twelve consecutive Wednesdays to boot up the game and get the achievement the "hard" way.

    Games MasterI got mine today doing a saturday-monday switch in the uk (GMT +1). I waited until past 10am so that I'd skip the whole of sunday but it seems to be sunday-monday for 2014. It looks like the day changes by 1 every year so expect it to be monday-tuesday in 2015.

    Eric FiltroMe and a friend can confirm that you need to do this on a Monday night. I am in Central Time, and got it at 8:30 p.m. My friend got it the week before, Monday night, at 10:30 p.m., Central Time as well.
