i can confirm it ! its works for me to - i recovered my Gamertag(without deleting it bevorhand,just outright downloading)and it works again,the glitch is gone - and i can also confirm that its a lot faster downloading then a year ago !
At least for me. I dont know exactly when, but i think it was 1 or 2 years ago, i downloaded my gamertag and it took me 2 or 3 hours i believe ! Now it took me like 5 min ! and at first i thought it didnt work because it cant be that fast - there must be something wrong
! but it worked at least for me !
