This achievement is only obtainable in Minecraft version 1.2.3 or later (stable and released to the public on October 18, 2017). If your game is not running the current version, you'll be prompted to update your game to newest version.

If you have played Minecraft: Xbox One Edition (Console Edition), read below on how to sync your old worlds over to this new version.
*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***


The basics (assuming you have it):

10 Redstone (approximately)
1 Lever
1 regular Piston
1 Sticky Piston

The achievement:

- Look at the ground and place the Sticky Piston.
- Walk to the left or right side of the Sticky Piston and turn around (180°).
- Look at the ground in front of the Sticky Piston (piston is to your left/right) and place the regular Piston.
- Both the Sticky Piston and regular Piston should be touching so that when either one expands, it will push the other.
- Place a trail of Redstone on the ground about 3 blocks away.
- Place the Lever at the end of the Redstone trail.
- Press cn_LT, to turn on the switch.
- The Sticky Piston is powered and expands, pushing the regular Piston away.
- Break 1 piece of the Redstone trail that leads up to the Sticky Piston.
- The Sticky Piston now retracts because power is interrupted, keeping the regular Piston attached to it. (this is due to the sticky surface)
- Now make a new Redstone trail toward the regular Piston.
- The regular Piston is powered on and expands, pushing the Sticky Piston away.
Achievement unlocked!


Note: If the achievement doesn't unlock right away, wait about 1-5 minutes.





But what if you were starting a new world and you don't have the items pre-made listed above? Here is what you need:

4 Wood (tree trunks of any kind)
16 Cobblestone
1 Slimeball (or 1 Slime Block; can be crafted into 9 Slimeballs)
12 Redstone
5 Iron Ore (or 5 Iron Ingots)
Any type of fuel for smelting Iron Ore.


The process:

First, find a tree (yes, a tree) and punch it (mine it with your bare hand; cn_RT) to get a piece of Oak Wood. Or better, use any type of Axe if possible.
Repeat this process again with another 3 more pieces of Oak Wood.
Press cn_X to open the Crafting menu. Highlight "Oak Wood Planks" (or whatever type of planks for the type of wood you have) and press cn_Y to make 16 Oak Wood Planks using the 4 Oak Wood we obtained earlier.
Now highlight "Crafting Table" and press cn_A to craft one. This will use 4 of the Oak Wood Planks we crafted earlier.
Now highlight "Stick" and press cn_A to craft 4 Sticks. Press cn_A again to craft 4 more Sticks. This will use 4 Oak Wood Planks we crafted earlier.
You should now have 8 Sticks.
Now highlight "Wooden Pickaxe" and press cn_A to craft one. This will use 3 Oak Wood Planks and 2 Sticks we crafted earlier.
Press cn_B to exit.
You might want to consider breaking the Crafting Table (mine with cn_RT) so that you can take it with you. We will be using it again later.

Find some smooth Stone (or Cobblestone) and mine it with the Wooden Pickaxe (or any other better Pickaxe) in hand using cn_RT. We need at least 16 blocks of Cobblestone.
Look at the ground and place your Crafting Table down.
Press cn_LT to open the Crafting Table.
Highlight "Lever" and press cn_A to craft. This will use 1 Cobblestone obtained earlier and 1 Stick we crafted earlier.
Highlight "Stone Pickaxe" and press cn_A to craft. This will use 3 Cobblestone obtained earlier and 2 Sticks we crafted earlier.
Highlight "Furnace" and press cn_A to craft. This will use 8 Cobblestone obtained earlier.
Press cn_B to exit.
You might want to consider breaking the Crafting Table again (mine with cn_RT) so that you can take it with you. We will be using it again later.

Here is the long and tricky part:
----- If you do not have 1 Slimeball (or 1 Slime Block), 5 Iron Ingots, and/or approximately 10 Redstone, continue reading this section. -----
You need to bring 2 Sticks, 1 Stone Pickaxe, 1 Furnace. You might consider bringing a Sword too if you encounter other hostile mobs.
You'll need to mine under ground, but never dig straight down.
Some of the things you are looking for are Slimes (a hostile mob; will not spawn in a world loaded on Peaceful difficulty), Coal Ore, Iron Ore, and Redstone Ore.
Kill a small Slime to obtain 0-2 Slimeballs.
Iron Ore can only be mined with a Stone Pickaxe or better (e.g. Diamond Pickaxe).

You'll need at least 5 total Iron Ore to make 5 Iron Ingots with a Furnace.
Once you have collected some Iron Ore and Coal...
Look at the ground and place your Furnace down.
Press cn_LT to open the Furnace interface.
Highlight your fuel (we're assuming that you'll be using Coal) and press cn_Y to quick move it to the fuel area (bottom).
Highlight your 5 Iron Ore and press cn_Y to quick move it to the ingredient area (top).
As soon as both the fuel and ingredient are in the Furnace, a flame will be visible and the smelting process will begin.
The final product will made on the right. Once it is finished, highlight "Iron Ingot" and press cn_Y to quick move it to you inventory.
Press cn_B to exit.
Now that you have your 5 ron Ingots, we'll be using 3 of them immediately.

Look at the ground and place your Crafting Table down.
Press cn_LT to open the Crafting Table.
Highlight "Iron Pickaxe" and press cn_A to craft. This will use 3 Iron Ingots smelted earlier and 2 Sticks we crafted earlier.
Press cn_B to exit.
You might want to consider breaking the Crafting Table again (mine with cn_RT) so that you can take it with you. We will be using it again later.

Now go looking for and mine Redstone Ore.
Redstone Ore can only be mined with an Iron Pickaxe or better (e.g. Diamond Pickaxe).

The last part:
Once we have our Redstone, we can finish the process. We only need 2 Redstone now to make the Pistons, the rest will be used as Redstone wiring.

Look at the ground and place your Crafting Table down.
Press cn_LT to open the Crafting Table.
Highlight "Piston" and press cn_Y to craft using all materials we have. This will use 6 Oak Wood Planks we crafted earlier, 4 Cobblestone we obtained earlier, 2 Redstone we obtained earlier and 2 Iron Ingot we smelted earlier.
You should now have 2 regular Pistons in your inventory.
Highlight "Sticky Piston" and press cn_A to craft. This will use 1 regular Piston we crafted earlier and 1 Slimeball we obtained earlier.
You should now have 1 regular Piston and 1 Sticky Piston in your inventory.
Press cn_B to exit.

Now you have a regular Piston, Sticky Piston, Lever, and enough Redstone to continue as explained earlier in this guide.
Senseless Ogre Still on 1.2.2 for Xbox and following these steps does not allow me to update. Any idea whats wrong?

lightsup55 If you installed the 1.2.3.3 update while Minecraft was running, you probably need to quit Minecraft and load it up again.

Check the "Queue" section of My games & apps to verify that an update/DLC was installed for Minecraft recently. If you install other games/DLC, it might not show it.

When you load up Minecraft, you can verify that you are running version 1.2.3.3 by looking in the lower right corner of the title screen.

Also, you could try power cycling your Xbox One console if needed (which I've added to the solution).

I also have added a video to the solution above.

PiCkLE SQU1D I uninstalled the game after having no luck with 1.2.3.3. Then I went to install it again but it wasn't in my Ready To Install list. So I went to Insider Hub and it was still there. I went from there and installed it and that's what got me to 1.2.3.3. Unfortunately the achievements still didn't pop.

lightsup55 Update: Minecraft version 1.2.3 released to the public on October 18, 2017. There is no need to install the Xbox Insider Hub app on Xbox One.

If your game is not running the current version, you'll be prompted to update your game to newest version.

KeysToGaming Can’t seem to get this one to pop, is anyone else having problems with it or noticing it’s glitching/glitched.

lightsup55 KeysToGaming, I can host an achievement world from Windows 10 that you can join and you can see if that works.

D3LTA I've had trouble with this in the past, but this solution worked well for me on WP. Thanks for the method.
