    I've yet to find them as well.  I understand that are are many abandoned mine shafts, but only three strongholds per map, so finding one if pretty hard.  My seed is 99.8% water, which means that I'm forced to do a lot of underground work, so I might have better chances than most.  We'll see.

    I have found tons of mineshafts (Usually mashed together in ravines underground). But no Strongholds.

    There are three strongholds per world in the PC version. We don't know if it is true for the xbox, there could be only one Stronghold.

    Also Mineshafts are rare but they are there, if you hear a bunch of spiders nearby through a wall you could be close to one or a dungeon. Just be careful, cave spiders are more dangerous than their larger counterparts. Strongholds are going to be a lot harder to find, I'm not surprised people aren't finding them yet. Eyes of Ender aren't craftable and play a good part in locating a Stronghold, if you manage to find one before Enchanting and Brewing are added to the game then it'll save you a lot of trouble killing Endermen.

    I have used the "find Stongholds without eye of ender" glitch, personally I have looked in many maps and have only found one in each.

    Named mine TILL and my seed is Pumpkins, and there is a stonghold north at x26 y71 z-110

    Also there are 10+ mineshafts- I have most of the map cords for them also

    That was a lot quicker confirmation that I was expecting. I attempted myself to use glowstone to see through the underground floor to possible locate said structure but the glitch doesn't appear to work or may have been fixed in advance, or just simply doesn't work with this version.

    If the size of Xbox worlds ever gets increased we can expect to see more than a single Stronghold a world.

    Your best bet is to make two worlds exacty alike, one in creative and one survival. Then in creative use the said Stronghold without ender glitch with TNT, map out where stuff is and switch to survival.

    Or just dig away the original way...

    as you see the seed with the long numbers that almost look like credit card numbers can generated interesting worlds.

    so just generate it in creative to check the world out take note of where stuff and if the world has what you want then generate it in Survival and get to work.

    Everyone & their dog plays that game. It's slightly adjusted from the year before only with a new title
    Why is this broken video game getting patched again and again and again, did i pay $$$ to be a beta tester?
