    I just finished AC Pirates over the last few days on WP10. From my experience, 10 has the possibility to not sync either. Sometimes another achievement would sync the previous ones that didn't sync initially. What I did do twice, with success, was to restart my phone, open the Xbox app and click the refresh up top, hit the Windows button to minimize the app but not close it, open the game and view the achievements and leaderboards in game. This worked twice to sync my achievements, 5-6 at one time and the final achievement when there were none left to unlock.

    I tried this and it didn't work for me so I tried repeatedly going in and out of the achievements menu on Final Fantasy while occasionally switching back to the (still opened in the background) Xbox companion app to refresh. I also don't have cell service with this phone anymore and use wifi for doing games, so I also disconnected and reconnected my wifi while doing the other steps and it eventually synced my last two achievements (which were the only ones that had trouble syncing).

    This took about 10-15 minutes of doing all these things and an occasional restart of my phone before they finally synced. So a variation of what you suggested worked for me. I'm curious if this will help anyone else or if anyone else finds success with another variation because I'm about to start Final Fantasy III now and I'd hate to have this happen again.

    It takes a few minutes before it syncs. It’s slow. Opening up halo spartan strike wp helps to speed up syncing

    my wp10 syncs maybe within like 1-10 minutes. I wish they could fix the wp7/8 syncing and make it like when they fixed it back in november achievements would sync in 1 second. I would literally just have my xbox one dashboard opened up, pop an ach on wp8 and the dashboard would just refresh by itself and the gamerscore added and ach synced.

    My issue is halo Spartan strike won't finish missions on win 8 but plays fine on my WP. Which does me no good as I can't progress in one and the other one won't sync

    You would need to update your phone to W10M and it would resolve the problem.

    Hello everyone,
    Unfortunately, the team looking into this issue has exhausted their resources and time and we not able to resolve the problem. I greatly appreciate the time and effort put that was put into it, but the workaround of force upgrading the device to W10M is the only known "fix" for syncing achievements earned on Windows Phone 8.

    I'm currently working through a title on my WP8 and will put together a blog for the process of upgrading when I've finished.

    Thanks for chasing this Shadow. Hopefully we’ll see a move across to Android and iOS supporting achievements more to cover my achievement hunting on the move fix

    Right now it's 1st party, but Gameloft has Xbox integration waiting on Android/iOS for Asphalt 9. It was promised back in November but removed at the last minute, so it seems Microsoft haven't given the go-ahead for non-XGS titles to enable it yet.
