How to repair Update Error 0x8B05000F 0x90170007 in Xbox One?
Check the server status
Before trying anything else, it’s important to make sure that the problem isn’t caused by something that can’t be fixed by the end-user. The update may fail due to a server problem that prevents your console from getting the files it needs to update the firmware.
To see if this scenario applies, you need to check the current status of Xbox Live services. To do this, follow this link from your mobile or desktop device and see if any services are currently experiencing problems (specifically, the Xbox Live Core service).
If your investigation did not reveal a server problem, the problem is probably occurring locally. In this case, one of the solutions below will help you solve the problem.
Resetting the console with the Startup Troubleshooter
Note that this process will delete game data, temporary files, video content, and anything else stored on the console.
- First, turn off the console completely and wait at least 30 seconds.
- Hold down the connect and eject buttons at the same time, then briefly press the Xbox button to start the Xbox One console.
- After you hear the second sound, release the connect and eject buttons and wait for the Xbox Startup Troubleshooter window to appear.
- Once in the Startup Troubleshooter, select Reset this Xbox with your controller and press the X button to start the process.
- In the confirmation window, select Delete All and wait for the process to complete.
- Once the process is complete, wait for the console to boot up normally and check if the problem has been resolved.
Perform the power off procedure
Since you have determined that the problem only occurs locally, you should first make sure that there is no temporary file on your Xbox One console that is preventing you from installing the new firmware.
The easiest way to do this is to perform a power cycle. This is more than just rebooting the console, as it drains the power capacitors and solves most firmware problems related to corrupt temporary files.
- Make sure your console is fully powered on (not in standby mode).
- Press and hold the Xbox button on your console for about 10 seconds (or until the front light stops flashing).
- Once the front light stops flashing, release the power button and wait a full minute before turning the console back on.
- During this time, you should also unplug the power cord from the power outlet to make sure that the power capacitors are fully discharged.
- Then briefly press the Xbox button on your console and watch the first (longer) startup animation screen.
- If you see this, take it as confirmation that the shutdown process has been successfully completed.
- After restarting your console, try installing the firmware again and see if you still see 0x8b05000f.
