Maybe a new solution for the glitched achievements. "Edit Gamer Profile"

Sorry if you guys heard this one before. I was getting a little desperate and I already finished Tinker, so I didn't have anything else I wanted to start to pop an achievement to try the other solutions.

I finally got "The Journey Ends" to update by going into my profile "Edit gamer profile" and I changed my gamerpic to one of the default pics that comes with GFWL. I waited like 5min and Xbox.com updated with the 30 pts "The Journey Ends". I will be curious to see if it works for the other 2 glitched achievs, but post a comment here if it works for you.

Edit 4/9/2011 - This also worked for "Friend of the Stars", since it did not update my gamertag on XBox.com (Live). I changed my gamer picture again in the GFWL interface and it updated XBox.com about 5 min later. Hopefully this will help cure any woes you've been having in finally getting this achievement to update correctly.

I got the achievement first, then changed my picture in the Games For Windows Live interface in order to update the gamerscore on XBox.com.

yeah I also tried this and the achievement still won't sync to my profile, but I'm always grateful for new ideas.

Thanks for posting this solution it finally unlocked 'The Journey Ends (Kids)' for me. First I changed my gamertag picture to one of the default GFWL pictures, then I played the last level. After the achievement message appeared I changed it to another default picture then went to check xbox.com to see if the achievement had stayed unlocked and it had. I'm so glad that I'll never have to bother with this glitchy game again.
