How To Change Your GamerTag w/o Recovering!

Saw someone trying to sell this, so I decided to post it. (I don’t believe this has been posted before, but if it has, let me know and I’ll junk it immediately.) I’m Rawr! from HF, I also posted it there. I did not leech it from there, all credits to me. :smile:

"Family settings has blocked your profile from downloading premium content"
I have no family settings >_>

Can I have a link or something?

Is it a download or a webpage?

I can’t tell if you’re a troll or just stupid… it’s from the legitimate microsoft.com website, of course it’s going to work. This tutorial is so valuable because the option to change your Zune tag was taken out, and very few people knew about this.

I dont know about this no virus scan or nothing…

Wow and I just changed my Gamertag…

Did you even read???.. It’s a wesbite :laughing:

Do you need a controller for this? And do you need a full Windows Game?

can someone trusted change my GT ?

No ****, I’m none of the above, Why would windows let you change your gamer tag for free via pc, and make you spend 800 MSP on the xbox for it?

It’s not a website, it’s in a “Games for windows live” game, Because they come with a UI that lets you sign into xbox live, GTA:IV for example

you dont NEED the controller, but yes, you need a windows game for it

So can I just download the demo of a game?

Possibly, any game that lets you use games for windows live in it.
I had just cause 2 and it wouldn’t let me use it, so i’m not sure.

Will this work with banned accounts?

Wow for some reason windows live doesn’t let me sign into the games thing. It says I’m entering my password wrong and I even resetted my password and still.

O.o
You are using your email right?
