Your friend is lying, of course, he is quitting the app. Also your saved data is your cache (same thing).New user first post. Please be gentle with me. XBOX ONE USER so this post is related to that console only.
Firstly i have read all 86 pages and have found a ton of useful information due to previous posters. Thank you.
My post is for some confirmation as i was struggling to get the calibration screen and tos and the no bad sport message.
Lately i have been filling in for other people repeating the heist and noticed nearly all of them are NOT clearing cache and getting tos / calibration screen yet the heist remains and they keep repeating it.
If i follow that method (out lined below) i get bad sport notice 100% of the time with my heist being deleted after the second run.
I have a friend (xbox1) of 25+ years who does not delete cache only save data.. he does not accept tos since he never is asked to yet his heist has been on his board for weeks now. I have witnessed this with my own eyes... and have heard in a bunch of random party's that's what they are also doing. Am i missing something?
I will outline my method and the one I'm hearing everybody doing as well as seeing my friend do it
1) quit in sweet spot whenever yours is
2) delete save from everywhere
3) restart gta
4) cancel sync after about 5 seconds
5) calibration screen appears, accept
6) sp boots into prologue
7) quit gta again
8) restart gta
9) console asks where to sync from (cloud or console) i pick console
10) gta now boots me into my sp save
11) go online, tos appear, accept
12) back online but still see bad sport
1) when at the sweet spot delete all save data instead of quitting then deleting, someone needs to tell you when phone drops then you delete.
2) resync from cloud (wtf)
3) push x to go online
4) repeat heist no bad sport msg
I don't see how the other method is sticking? 100% fails for me but not my friend.
We both quit when phone drops so not a timing thing i suspect. Both running same Xbox consoles as well so no difference there.
Any help on my method or what I'm missing from the other way to make it easier would be appreciated.
What is the point of supposedly not quitting?
R* writes a flag to your saved data to tell them you have quit, if you don't delete the saved data the game will know.
I think your friend is quitting and not fully resyncing as he is claiming you to believe, have you actually seen what he is doing or is he just telling you ?
At the end of the day your method (well not your method) which has been listed here already us how you do it, doesn't matter what others are trying to claim although you can tweak yours a bit. If you did read the 86 pages as you claimed, but does not look like you did ..
4) Cancel sync between 14-18%
5) Get calibration screen
6) Prologue should not appear, continue to load in online
7) Join GTA Online
8) Sign agreement
You should not see #12 if you did it right .. if you get the calibration screen you should not get the bad sport message.
Steps are list literally above your post and on page #82 of this thread.
