Xbox One bricked after update with “E100” error code

Having already reported on a major problem with the Xbox One, we thought you would want to know that there are reports of other problems, one of which includes the Xbox One being bricked after its day one patch update.

Seeing headlines like Xbox One bricked after update will not be what Microsoft or next-gen consoles owners would want to hear, especially seeing an “E100” error code, which you can see in the image above.

We are not too certain how widespread this issue is, but one Xbox One owner has said that he managed to brick his console after trying to run the day one patch. Along with the “E100” error code are some other random numbers.

However, when you look at the FAQ on the Microsoft Troubleshoot page it says that it is related to a failed system update, which then states the device, in this case the Xbox One, should be returned to Microsoft.

The original source of the article is being accused of being biased and that one failure is not proof of any other Xbox One consoles becoming bricked. However, having already seen an issue with discs ejecting it will not be long before other problems arise, although we’re not certain if bricked consoles will be one of them.

Do you think this error code is a one-off?
