I'm having the same problem. I've waited 3 days now and it still hasn't changed to my new gamertag name in the party.

Yup I just did about 20 mins ago. it still won't update completely for my friends some of them it says my new gamertag and from some of the others it shows my old name. Sometimes when I'm in a random party and someone tries to add me because it shows my old gamertag whenever the person tries to add me it tells them my gamertag is no longer there and I end up having to send them a friend invite.

it worked only problem was it made the signing part freeze up or something because it wouldn't sign in after waiting 5 mins so I just ended up turning the console off because it wouldn't even cancel. Anywho I turned it back on it signed me in and it worked. Thank you :)
