Locking Xbox 360

  • Locking Xbox 360 sommerjj

    To make a long story short, I need to lock my Xbox when I'm away from the house to prevent my youngest sibling from getting into it on the occasions he's left home alone. Is there a way to lock it so that he can't use it? I searched through settings on the console but found nothing to indicate a way to lock it, such as a password required to boot. Obviously I could do something like take the power brick but I want to check for a better way.

  • Nope, there's no trivial way to software-lock the use of the Xbox 360 short of modding it. Taking the brick or AV cable is probably your best bet.

  • Set up a parental control passphrase and set the lowest ranked game that he can play to EC (Early Childhood). This worked for my brothers when I was younger and needed to go do something. Just dont make the code ABXY and you should be fine. Although, taking that brick is ultimately the end all, be all of security.

  • I broke the DVD drive on my Xbox 360 while trying to JTAG it so that I could install XBMC or something similar on it. Now I can't even update Xbox Live anymore nor do anything else except stream movies from my PC to the Xbox. Is there any other way to install XBMC or similar software to the Xbox 360 or any other ideas to achieve the same without streaming from PC? I'm not looking to play illegal games on it, ideas for that won't be necessary. The goal is to convert it into a media center.

  • from my wife. Everything I buy (games, songs, DLC) is through pre-paid cards, and all under my account. Obviously I can use all bought content on her account too. Now XBOX Live is available in Brazil, and they even provide a way to migrate your account from Live US keeping everything you bought. I don't want to migrate my account since because of brazilian laws not all games are available here. But since they are releasing more and more DLC with region lock, I thought about migrating only my wife's account so I can buy locked contend using her account. My question is: can I keep two XBOX Live

  • I started playing on an xbox 360 that was not connected to the internet and created a local profile, figuring that I could get around to associating that local account with my xbox live account at a later time (which i have used in the past on the PC, just not a console). However, it seems that there is no way to make that profile associate with an existing xbox live account. I only have the option to create a new account, or download an existing one. Am I not going to be able to use my old xbox live profile, if I want to keep the saved games and achievements from my local account

Any help would be awesome! Thanks!
