    Requirements:

    Official Xbox 360 Memory Card
    A way to connect this memory card to the PC, such as the Datel Data Transfer Kit.
    Xplorer 360
    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.

    Never say never though :)

    Pretty cool (H), too bad we can't do anything with it :(.

    I'm sure someone will hack it someday.

    This thing is for doing tests on a 360, manufacturing mode is unknown, we can't get to it without faking a server.

    yeah, i can't wait for the day that this can be used as a HEN (Homebrew Enabler) or something similar to team twizzers installing homebrew channel thing but, installing the jtag files inside the Flash files of the xbox 360 instead. ;)

    This is seriously cool, like you said though, dead end. However, there are many out there much smarter than I! I'm afraid all I can do is look to the geniuses and wait... It makes me wonder if the dashlaunch fakelive=true would have any effect on this?

    mmm , one does tend to wonder. Though manufacturing mode sounds like What they would do at the manufacturing plant to load in software or test hardware before being shipped out. Kinda like a phone with challenge points and responses
