    Hey i got the beta but when i try and move my gamer profile back onto my xbox from my flash drive it says there is a problem doing that and then when i try and recover my gamertag it says it doesnt work. PLEASE help me i’ll die if i lose my gamer profile :(((

  2. parker Says:

    Yea the game just continuously freezes at the “May contain content inappropriate for children” Is moving the game from my usb to my xbox all i can do to solve it? Because i’ve already done that.

  3. admin Says:

    Yeah moving the demo and your Gamer Profile back to your Hard drive should have cured the Freezing Issue. And that sounds weird, Parker. I would call Microsoft and tell them you are having problems recovering your Gamer Tag. Don’t tell them what you were up to though lol.

  4. even a caveman can do it Says:

    it works perfectly thanks

  5. Daniel Bitar Says:

    Hey man! it works! perfectly! thakyou! just one thing!… how this works? i mean… beside other betas downloaded from internet, what is the special thing of this one that actually let you play the game?? 🙂 …. thak you!

  6. ... Says:

    When I click on the file in my games library the screen just goes black and nothing happens, I’ have tried copying my gamer profile and the file back to my xbox’s hard drive as well.

  7. admin Says:

    … Move your Gamer Profile and everything back to your Xbox. Then plug your USB into your computer and Format it. Now restart the process: configure your USB and go through the other steps. When you have injected CBE63F35E657ECE72EDF577353571CB6BBBD95874D into 0008000 and you are closing out of USBXTAFGUI 44 Make sure to go to File “Close Current Drive”. Chances are the Beta file did not copy over to your USB properly the first time.

  8. OMGnanerpus Says:

    Thanks! Worked fine for me first try right off USB. Never played Gears Of War before though.. i got raped for the first 3 matches

  9. sammy Says:

    Yo guys, just wondering, when you move your Gamer Profile over to usb, will you still be able to load/access all your other game memory on the xbox hard drive? got a lot of games with big game time and i dont wanna risk losing it 😉

  10. admin Says:

    Yes you will. And moving your Gamer Profile is only temporary. After you have the Beta on the USB you can move the Beta and Your Gamer Profile back on to your Hard Drive.

  11. quinn Says:

  16. seansrfc Says:

    this dont work im after trying loads of times ive done wat youve said and when you put usb back into xbox all it has is ur profile…..i done it all rite aaaaaaaaah

  17. admin Says:

    The Beta File Should be “CBE63F35E657ECE72EDF577353571CB6BBBD95874D”, it should not start with an E. Use the download link provided above to get the Correct Files. If you had already downloaded the Beta Prior to this Tutorial remember to delete it, and replace it with the Beta we have provided. Also, make sure you are creating all of the folders properly. Make sure you Create the “0000000000000000” Folder inside “Data Partition” > “Content” and then the other folders inside of that. Good Luck. If you follow the tutorial closely, and name all the Folders correctly everything should work out.

    HELP!!! i’m doing everything step by step, but when i load the beta launcher i can’t play. all that happens is a screen pops up that says the gow3 beta is coming soon and i need 2gb of free space on my hd. the only thing i can do from that screen is exit. how can i fix it? 🙁

  19. g4Nk Says:

    nvm, i was using a different beta launcher that i got from a different site instead of the one provided. now when i launched i was prompted to update, so i’m guessing it will work now =]

  20. Dutch Says:

    Great man !! It works perfect !! I am playing it right now !!

  21. L14m Says:

    when i click on the download link it doesnt download the other program you know that USBXTAFGUI 44 it just says the beta has downloaded please help 🙂

  22. admin Says:

    L14m, the File that you download contains the Beta and the program. It is a Rar file meaning that it needs to be unzipped in order for you to extract the files inside it. If you do not have a program for unzipping Rar Files you can download WinRAR here:
    Hope this Helps you out!

  23. JK Says:

    Just wanted to know that if i removed the beta from my xbox then used the actual code but removed that can i put the beta from here back on my xbox?

  24. HG Says:
