    How to boot an Xbox 360 in to Manufacturing Mode with a Memory Card
    Requirements:

    Official Xbox 360 Memory Card
    A way to connect this memory card to the PC, such as the Datel transfer kit
    xplorer360
    Manufacturing mode files

    How to:

    First connect the 360’s Memory Card to the PC.

    Do not format the Memory Card when asked, you will ruin it.

    Load Xplorer 360 up, then select Drive > Open > Hard drive or Memory Card

    Now click Partition 1, in the file area right click and select insert file, dump both automct.ini and default.xex in to the root of the memory card.

    That’s it, you’re done.

    Just place the memory card in Memory Card Slot A and power your Xbox 360 on, it should then boot in to manufacturing mode.

    As it can’t connect to a server running on the network it is pretty much usless, although unlikely you might someday be able to explot the Xbox 360 like this… a bit like the Pandora Battery for the PSP, although I wouldn’t hold your breath, apparently the whole thing is a dead end.

    Manufacturing mode is nothing new. Thats what the red/green up/dn blinkers means.
    mfgbootlauncher.xex is on flash, and and can be made to execute a number of different ways.
    Hook up a serial port and you should see the messages about contacting the server etc.
    Naturally if your about to get a new KV, youd need to be in contact with the mothership.
    imho the whole thing is a dead end. Never say never though [​IMG]
