Are there any plans for a greasemonkey style script that would allow users to update hidden achievement images, or change the B/W image to color?
I was wondering about the black & white achievements myself since I have several completed, but they still appear as black & white.
TrueAchievement has a script for staff to run. You unlock an achievement, open your xbox.com page for the game, run the greasemonkey script, it grabs and updates the images and info.

Hunting down some APIs and Webservices for some ideas I had on my own, I came across:

https://xboxapi.com/ and https://www.xboxleaders.com/ which have a lot of services available. (XboxAPI has a 350 request per hour limit, so would not be truly appropriate for your needs)

At XboxLeaders, in the community forum, one of the users has already started laying out XML feeds for the secret achievements his profile has unlocked and has the XMLs available to all.

Might be a good way to start getting some of the information.
Here's someone that has already worked out getting the color achievement image instead of the grey one:

I put the code, as a straight copy-and-paste, on my domain: http://www.futiles.net/Challenges/achievementimage.php

Seems to be an error, and I have not had a chance to trouble-shoot it, yet.

Once I get it figured out, I'll let you know, if interested.
Would be awesome if we were able to update secret achievements. I have quite a bunch of them
Thanks for the links Futiles. We will definitely look into this.

Just as an FYI, Achievementhunter.com also allows you to do this by grabbing the link to the picture from your xbox-live account. You just copy and paste it in from the properties screen (If you're using a PC)
