    I still am wondering about this E106 thing and I am just making sure that I do not want to erase my data from games. But my real question is if I do the OSU1, Will it factory reset on its own and will it remove my games as well (making it so I have to buy games again) Or does it keep the games?

    :)

    When doing the offline system update (OSU1) Will it factory reset on its own? If so, does it do the factory reset but keeps the games or the version when it deletes everything.

    Hi there Andrew, my name is Gerardo, and I'm an Xbox player, just like you. I'll be happy to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.

    Performing an offline update will reset the console to its factory settings and uninstall the apps and games that were installed on the console. However, you will not lose your purchases or game progress. You will need to sign in with the account where you purchased the games using your email and password. You can then re-download the games from your library, and the progress will sync automatically when you launch them.

    I hope this helps and if you have further questions please let me know.

    Kind regards,
    Gerardo.

    Xbox One disconnecting the controller and Internet connection (Wi-Fi & cable) when using the console

    Hiya!

    The best thing to do would be to do a repair on the console. When performing a factory reset on the console that fixes most issues. If even after performing an

    offline system update
    the issue persists then as George said the best thing to do is to submit the console for repair.

    Happy Gaming!

    Hey Paul, I already did a factory reset on the console and an offline system update (OSU1) - and unfortunately, the problem persists after some time using the console.

    The repair here at Brazil is so expansive, I can't pay for that. There isn't anything different that I can do?

    Pointless since no real support but can't access my Xbox Series X or S since 24hrs and nothing works

    "Done all trouble shooting, reset Xbox, updated firmware offline same problem"

    If your console is enrolled in a Insiders preview OS you cannot use OSU1 (offline system update) to recover the console from E206 error.

    Factory refresh the console keeping games and apps.

    If you are NOT in a Insiders preview and want to attempt an offline system update, make sure you disconnect your wired ethernet connection before starting OSU1.

    Personally I wouldn't bother with offline update and go straight to Factory refresh deleting everything if keeping games and apps fails to reset the console.

    After factory refresh, reconnecting your console to your network should start a system update download to the latest OS available.

    See also ....Whats new system updates in the Hardware section of Xbox support articles and /or search for E206 on that site.

    Is the OSU1 (Offline system update) same thing as factory reset?

    Hi there Andrew, my name is Gerardo, and I'm an Xbox player, just like you. I'll be happy to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.

    It's not the same, but it's very similar. An offline update installs the console's operating system from scratch because the latest version of the operating system is downloaded onto an external storage drive and then installed on the console.

    After the procedure is completed, the same thing happens as when you reset the console to its factory settings, meaning you'll need to set up the console and sign in with your account. Your games and their progress won't be lost; you'll just need to add your account back with your email and password.

    In fact, this procedure is recommended if the E106 issue is not resolved simply by resetting the console to its factory settings.

    I hope this helps and if you have further questions please let me know.

    Kind regards,
    Gerardo.

    No Video After Hard Reset From Offline System Update That Was Stuck

    Update: I've concluded the hard drive is probably bad. After many hours, I have been able to get to the Troubleshooter and have tried to do factory resets as well as offline updates of OSU1 and factory reset. The soft factory reset has just come back
    with other error codes as have the offline updates. Sometimes the offline updates successfully complete but come back with error codes (ex. 200 and 103). The offline updates often get to a point where each additional % of progress is very very slow. You can
    hear the hard drive working hard when that happens. The error codes seem to indicate failure of offline updates. So I have given up. Luckily I realized my 1 year warranty was not up yet so I will be sending the unit back for warranty repair.
