Any way to force Xbox 360 slim to reformat or bypass parental control safety mode?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Yea so basically I was just wondering if it's possible to do without accessing the system settings. Basically I got a used console (from gamestop) with the safety mode on and can't reformat it...

This also teaches me to reformat my own before I trade them in there since now I have access to 6 peoples gamer tags...

Hah that's awesome. There is a way to do this, let me see if I can remember how...

Nope, so heres what my Google-Fu turned up:

"Press the following key combination

Left Trigger, Right Trigger, X, Y, Left Bumper, Right Bumper, Up, Left Bumper, Left Bumper, X"

EDIT: Love the avatar by the way.

The only way to get a 360 to reformat is to just sledge hammer it to death.
