Got intel with cheats and can't get the achievement? Here's your help!

(I know this is repeat information, but I had to dig through 8 pages of naysayers to find the solution, so I'm posting this as, hopefully, a one-stop solution thread that will QUICKLY get people the answer they need. Please sticky?)

As you know, if you have a cheat activated while you collect any piece of enemy intel throughout the game, you are not granted the corresponding achievement(s) (Look Sharp/Eyes and Ears) after you have collected all 15/30 pieces. The intel pieces do not respawn. Furthermore, the data concerning them is stored in your Gamertag, so deleting your saved games/game data does not make them reappear. This has led many to believe there is no possible way to get the achievements after collecting intel with a cheat on.

But you can. It involves a somewhat tricky maneuver... but if you're stuck at 980/1000 gamerscore for Modern Warfare, you will be happy to do whatever it takes.

The YouTube video below explains the procedure for the fix. It involves resetting the intel on your gamer profile, so that you can go back through the game and recollect the intel without cheats on, triggering the achievement. BE AWARE: The video explanation skips a crucial step, without which the procedure will not work. Thus, I have outlined the basic steps below the link; including the one which the video did not. In bold is the step not explicitly mentioned in the video.


This procedure requires that you be using a wireless controller.

1. At COD4 start screen, log into a gamer profile which has collected no intel in the game (such as a "Guest" profile: if you do not have one, create one).

2. Select the mission F.N.G. and load the mission. The difficulty level does not matter. Steps 3-4 which follow must be completed while the missions is loading.

3. While the mission is loading, quickly sign out of the guest profile, and sign back in with your own profile (the profile on which you used cheats to collect the intel).

4. After your profile is signed in completely (remember to press "A" when it tells you you can't sign into Xbox Live), remove the power pack of your wireless controller.

5. When the mission has finished loading, reconnect the power pack and power up your controller. The game will inform you that your profile was signed out and that you must exit.

6. Sign back out of your profile before returning to the main menu (this is the step which the video excludes, and it is crucial). Then, without a profile loaded, go back to mission select and begin the mission "F.N.G." again. When it asks you to sign in, sign in with your own profile (the profile on which you used cheats to collect the intel).

That's it. When the mission loads, check your intel and you will see that it has been reset; that you have collected 0 of 30 pieces. You may now go back through the game and collect all the intel pieces (without cheats on!), upon which you will receive the proper achievement(s).

Use the YouTube video for further guidance, but remember to follow step 6, which the video excludes. Good luck!

Doesn't work at all. Video doesn't even work, and what you describe doesn't actually happen.

I understand the frustration on the part of those who it isn't working for yet. Keep trying! There are many of us who have done it successfully. Don't give up. Remember to follow all of the steps exactly! I'm going to try to get another YouTube video posted, since the one above was removed.

I have tried this several times and all the things that are said to supposed to happen are happening but it isn't working. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm not the most skilled gamer, but I did this entire game (except no fighting in the war room and mile high club on Vetran). I want 1000/1000 but my son and I goofed around with the camera filters aKa cheats and now I'm screwed.

Shit, I don't know what I'm doing wrong then, I keep trying but it never works. This guys needs to do another video, I might be able to catch what I'm doing wrong if I watch the video.

I do believe it works, but I just can't seem to get it.

See, I'll describe what happens. I have my Gold Live Account, Atomic Diharrea (my cheating bastard account) and that Silver Live Account, ILoveYourPeenis (yeah sorry.... that's the Guest one) I don't think he's got any intel since all the missions are still locked and I've never uploaded it anywhere else.

So what i do is I log in with Clear.
I'm going through the mission, select, I take FNG on regular.

First Doubt: As soon as the loading bar appears, I log off, then log in with Atomic, but it does not say "Can't sign in to xbox live". So I don't have to press A like said. Does that mean I must unplugg my connexion? It wasn't specified, so I don't know much about that. I'm only guessing.

Then of course, I remove the battery back. Wait for the end of the loading bar. Error message. Put back battery pack. Log off from Atomic. return automaticaly to main menu.

Second Doubt: Now I'm not logged in with anybody. I go over "mission select", showing me right away a message telling me to log in or progress won't be save. If I say no, then go to FNG, regular, it doesn't ask me to log in again, and even if I manually log in with Atomic, it brings me back to menu as soon as the loading is done (after the Error message). So if I log in when they ask me, at the main menu, would it work? because that's not what is said in the description.

Now I can't find any clear video of that. I think it is a pain in the ass, I can't see why Xbox can't let us clear all my saves: I've beaten veteran and all, I just want a second chance! i guess uploading my profile on another xbox would bring along my super intels anyway... Anyway, tell me what am I doing wrong, it's been about a year I'm dead-pissed with that achievement. For once, that's a game that's not too hard to complete without impossible or super long achievement, and THAT glitch (and Mile High Club XD) prevent me from completing it.... damn!

I've also tried this... dozens of times. Not only does it not proceed like explained but even multiple variations on the process yields the same result, no intel reset. I was one of the few/many who didn't realize that if you disable one of the cheats before picking up intel it still bends you over. Has anyone tried using a friend's console and importing their gamer profile into that system and then loading the game? I was going to with a buddy of mine but he just rrod'd. And for those with the same problem, don't waste your time deleting your game save as this does not reset intel.

PS Dear Infinity, loved the game, not so thrilled that you'd lock an achievement out completely. I get it, cheaters are cheaters and deserve what they get. But had I known messing with picture resolution was such a sin I would never have done it. Time to patch this bad boy up.
