Microsoft says the button combination forces the console to search for a USB drive update, which isn't the default chain of operations when the Xbox One normally boots up.Xbox One owners will be able to perform an offline update on consoles with a USB flash drive and a PC with an internet connection and USB Port, according to the Xbox One support page.The emergency offline update is intended for users having trouble downloading the system update from Xbox Live.The flash drive will require at least 2 GB of space and must be formatted correctly.Before installing the update on the Xbox One, users will need to unplug the network cable, power off the console and unplug the power cord.That said, anyone who runs into difficulties now may be forced to go through Microsoft support channels to get the files they need, rather than simply obtain them from Microsoft's server.

"That file was never designed to replace the day one update," Microsoft exec Albert Penello explained via Neo GAF.

The company issued Eurogamer a statement contradicting its earlier claim that the site could be used to manually update an Xbox One's firmware.

The files which users could download to do so have also been pulled.

Step-by-step instructions are available on the support page.

Xbox One requires a launch-day patch before users can begin using the console.

Much like the PS4, prospective Xbox One owners can download the system's day-one update early to a USB stick.
