I know I was really hard on it in the other thread, but the new dashboard is coming along. Still not perfect, but they've fixed a lot more than I expected.

This update seems to have made my Xbox One significantly faster.

Microsoft plans to bring Xbox 360 store to Xbox One soon

In a statement provided to Game Informer, Microsoft said that in order to access DLC for Xbox 360 games, it will either need to be purchased from an Xbox 360 console or through the Xbox Games Store on their website. The company explained "right now, backward compatibility does not emulate the Xbox 360 store and new Xbox 360 games can be purchased on your Xbox 360 or Xbox.com."

Microsoft also hinted that emulation for Xbox 360 store purchases is something the company plans to work on, but won't be on November 12 when backwards compatibility launches.

If you're in the Preview program and having trouble locating your DLC, here's how to install it. Go to your "My Games and Apps" tile. Select the game you want to install DLC for and pick "Manage Game" from the menu.

wow this fall update is new, streamlined and I like having the guide on the side again.
yesterday out new update for preview members

I had avoided as long as I could and yesterday I was pushed into the NXE. After the download and install my console got the green screen of death. I had to download and install the offline update, which failed, and then had to go to full factory restore.

So far, the UI is faster, I hate the new achievement app, but the My achievements section works just like the old app. Also, I can't find how to not show all the betas I have uninstalled but are showing in the ready to install section.
I don't like the navigation when you have an app snapped.

Hello,

1) hard turn off your console (hold power button until it powers down 2) unplug everything except for hdmi (this includes external hds and such. 3) wait 15 minutes 4) hold down sync and eject buttons simultaneously, then tap the power button. 5) wait ten minutes and hopefully it should go from green loading screen to the dashboard.

Hope this helps

So imagine I'm playing a game, snap my achievements to the right (same as always). Now to go back and forth between the apps I double tap the home and move stick to the left or right, right? No no, that's how it USED to work.

Now I double tap, it brings up the menu on the left (now covering up my game, achievements still snapped on right), then I have to go down to the little icon and choose left or right screen or unsnap. It was much faster and less invasive in the old ui, but they made it slightly better by having the choice in the new menu (it wasn't there at first). Still needs improvement because I can't scream "xbox switch" while the wife is sleeping.
