Remove Xbox 360 Family Settings

So a Friend of mine bought an Xbox 360 off of somebody that he worked with. He was moving and did not want to take it with him. The usual story. Regardless, We unhooked the original Xbox and hooked up the 360. One day I decided I was going to play gun. After I put in the disc, I get prompted to enter the family settings password. Hmm??? What could that be. I ask my friend, and he has no idea. Secret Question, "whats my favorite food?". Like I am going to guess that. So long story Short, this is how you bypass The Xbox 360 Family Settings.


Step 1: Go into Settings > System Info

Step 2: Carefully press the following buttons. ( It may take a few tries to get right, but it does work!)

Left Trigger, Right Trigger, X, Y, Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X, Left D-Pad, Left D-Pad, Left D-Pad.

Step 3: It will ask you if you want to restore the default settings. Click Yes.

Step 4: Rejoice!

And there you have it. Hope it has been useful.

Have a good day, night, morning, evening, maybe brunchhour?

hEY i JUST PHONED MICROSOFT SUPPORT AND THEY HELPED ME, BUT ON THE NXE DASH I WAS GIVEN THIS CODE ON SYSTEM SETTINGS: LT, RT, X, Y, LB, RB, X, Y, X, X. I FIGURED OUT ON A TOTALLY DIFFERENT XBOX WITH NXE, INSTEAD OF X, Y, X, X, I TRYED IT WITH X, Y, Y, Y AND IT WORKED. HOW GOOD IS THAT LOOL

Hey, well what you do is phone microsoft xbox support. Tell them you bought the console second hand even if it's hot(don't buy hot stuff, it's immoral and you will get caught), register the console with them. they will then go thru the process of resetting your console. I bought mine from a pawnbrokers/second hand shop like that and they still helped me. Process takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes. Hope this helps. I
