Can you put a password on the file manager because i can't figure out how.

What's would be the point of a password function if you could not lock the file manager. Especially since you could launch the file manager and open up the xml. Or even easier just launch frome there?

in your config file, change this line to look like this

<Item Action="FileManager" password="zyx">File Manager</Item>

of course edit the zyx to whatever password you want

Read config.xml, along with the docs that came with it. Most items in config.xml have the Password attribute with empty values.
<Item Action="FileManager" Password="MyPassword">File Explorer</Item>

That's the only way to launch file manager. There's no shortcut/key combo because of the password. I figured that's more than enough, if people want to really keep someone off of his xbox, it's a lot easier to hide the xbox, or even just the controllers.

oops, Lugnut is quicker, I think I need to stop answering simple questions like this since most of you can answer a lot of things already smile.gif

just the little peace of cable that plugs into the xbox seams to do the trick

passwords is just so kids don't mess it up not realy a security feature
