Oh i saw that the service was cancelled on the 18th may so assumed i missed it by a few days. I guess its my fault for waiting so long to start this game, but being published by Microsoft they should change the achievement so that it can still be unlocked
When they announce something compared to when they actually do/did it can be 2 different things.
It stopped working on the 22nd Jan (4 months ago), but they only announced it a few days ago.

The only chance this achievement has to be fixed is if they make the Xbox One Smartglass work with 360 BC games. And even that is hoping for too much. I would be surprised if they do it.

It says someone got the achievement a few days ago, but I am not sure if they found a work around or if they forced it through illegitimate means, but it might be worth asking them about it if anyone really wants the achievement in question.

Unlocked long after the service was down, and even unlocked offline? Yea, I guarantee you that wasn't a legit unlock

Hopefully there's a way to unlock legit.

Probably it will never be possible if people don't make a fuss.
SmartGlass Xbox 360 was officially discontinued.

Nope. It's not that the app isn't available, the service it uses is dead

Probably didn't get it legit, but he does seem to have a time stamp.
Let us know how you go :)

He still not answered. Let's hope it's legit.
Some cheaters a while ago also had timestamps.

Timestamps can be added to hacked achievements so unfortunately doesn't mean much.

I'll be honest, it was kind of nice before when we could hope the system was just having problems and maybe someone got through. But now, when Microsoft has officially said "yea it's dead, sorry", this thread just feels like the one for Halo 2 PC where people keep making suggestions like "have we tried LAN matches?!"

Well he was not very helpful I guess. Said it was luck. Just clicked after some attempts and it unlocked.

Said maybe because he is a user of the bluestacks thing. I guess it's a mobile emulator. I've tried an android emulator because I don't have an android phone but gave up because it's annoying to make it work. First person recently who didn't use the Windows 10 version.

I've tried with the Windows 10 today and no luck. But sometimes it really does stay more time spinning and return the error above the standard "couldn't find console page". Just like it was before the officail discontinuation of the app.

Yea unfortunately his answer is literally not possible. It's like saying I just kept on trying to connect my OG Xbox to LIVE and eventually it worked. And then I did it on a second OG Xbox and eventually it worked. And then they were able to communicate with each other and play an online coop game.

All using the OG LIVE service that hasn't existed for 8 years.

I'll give him credit though, at least he tried to make up an excuse with Bluestacks instead of the usual "I dunno I just happened to get it, sorry" this stuff usually gets.

But could it be?
With a good gamercore and a good ratio a person would risk getting banned because of an achievement?

I'll keep trying.
But, as I've started this game and I suffer some kind of involuntary stubborness, I'll be following this achievement until the end of times.
I don't understand how a person can unlock and I can't.

Nope, not by actually meeting the requirements at least. It could somehow be unlocked by unrelated methods, but if that were the case these people wouldn't be claiming they totally got it legit

You would think not, but it wouldn't be the first time.

Well I can't argue with that. We all have our white whale in life laugh

Don't worry, they can't either wink

I think he probably got it legitimately..
I say that because if you check the beginning of this subject, many people got issues to connect to the console and after some days the app worked to connect to the console for one or 2 days and stopped working.
As Guitar Lincoln said, he tried for 5 days with several methods without getting it and he got it 2 days later. There is no sense...
Also, if the smartglass service doesn't work, why I can still download it on window 10 pc and log in my account... It's not logical... if the service was shutdown I should be able to access to a part of the service.
I think the connection between the app and the console is completely unstable and they just stopped trying to fix it. with luck (a lot), we can still get.. I'm going to try morning and evening , everyday and i will see.

I believe the same thing.
They just announced "no more support". I believe it's still working.
No more support means they will not take time to fix if people ask them. We did asked a lot of times, people even used the standard troubleshooting the support gave them (deleting profile, clearing cache, restarting console, etc). The staandard steps solve the majority of issues people have, but this is very specific and the support probably never had a solution, but somehow they opted to just drop support of the app.

But some of us really try a lot of times and nothing. While others try a couple of times and it magically works. Talk about good timing!
Let's keep trying!
