    Right lads!....at the mo i have bout 108k gamerscore tho i took a copy of my profile a while back (360 explorer) at about 98k this was to re-arange my achievements order in the profile editor, i havnt used it to unlock achievements but just to re-order the achieves,

    if i go online with this older copy of my profile with the re-ordered achievements will this delete the achievements ive unlocked after i took my copy of the profile??

    basically i just wana update my achievement order of older games to look legit but not loose the new achievements ive unlocked, i play and update everyday so all my achievements are online and updated

    Any help is much appreciated, SG

    oh rite, how can that be?? i thought it wud just be like having a older version of your profile, like when you recover your tag on a friends console which u dont update daily, the one on ur mates console will still work wen you come back to it in the future doesnt it?

    I have often wondered if I could fix the order of achievements that are already unlocked with any of the profile tools but I am too chicken to do it. maybe you should make a new gamertag and use a load"n"pop save that you know is out of order and then try it with that one, that way if they reset it who cares.

    Sick Gring, if you recover a profile on another console, it won't work on the previous console unless its recovered again.
    Each time the profile swaps ID's and updatesw certain bits of it, it renders the old versions useless

    One of the other XPG Team would be able to explain it all better. :angry:

    You can use a copy of your profile and it will work but as soon as you connect to Live then it'll update to whatever is on the server (achievements and all). And you can use a copy of your profile on as many xbox's as you want but you can't connect to Live with only but one at a time because as soon as you connect it'll update it and of course there can only be one "JoeBlowGamertag" account - it's not possible for two people to have the same gamertag (or PUID/XUID), so there's no way for two of the same tags to be on at once.

    Your IDs come from whatever console and device that the content is created on. You can resign gamesaves because they aren't signed by Microsoft's private key unlike DLC and other stuff that is. But if you created a Profile on Console-A and Device-A then if you happen to recover it from Live then it should get the IDs of the new Console/Device that downloads it but it should still work on any console. You don't HAVE to recover a profile in order to use it... I've used other people's several times without recovering. The whole purpose of recovering is to get your profile from Live onto another console, if you can move it by means of MU/HDD transfer then there's no need to recover it.

    You can re-order and remove your achievements (as well as games played, etc.) and it'll work as long as the profile hasn't been updated on Live. If you've already been on Live then you can't re-order or remove them because they will be updated on Microsoft's server. Live will update - not let you downgrade.

    Hope that helped... :angry:

    Ive now tested this and the older copied version of my tag i took via explorer 360 DOES work online even after ive been updated online with my everyday profile


    i tested this out on my main account mate and it does NOT work....i had perfect dark zero on my tag all out of order for ages...i took a copy of my profile rearanged the order & went online...tho it did sign in to xbox live & the achievements looked as tho they changed order on my dashboard, on xbox.com the order stayed the same...so on the whole u can rearnage your order but if uve been online to update ur tag with that out of order game its set in stone :thumbsup:
