ive been told by many friends that someone is going to try to steal my xbox again, i was warned in advance last time and caught the person "Rott in hell you know who". Ive been told its going to happen again by someone else and would really appreciate it if someone knows a way to make an automated task, like on december 14 2005 it will rename evoxdash.xbe on the c drive to haha.xbe and it would cease to work after rebooted next time, some type of script so if the xbox is on anytime after december 14 it will run the script or something of that nature, Any help would be appreciated, this is already my second xbox!

Thanks to anyone who helps!

How exactly is someone stealing your xbox? Do you bring it to school in your backpack or something? If so, just don't bring it... or sleep with a gun next to your bed.

Dude just put a mastre pass on your box with XBMC as your main dash. Set max retrys to 1 and then if they dont know the xbox password it will reboot. And they wont be doing anything with your box except staring at all the shit you have locked..

Works magically.. What a great feature you can lock everything.. and the only way they will get past it is if they are smart enough to reformat.

Works great for girlfriends too!

As suggested above, just enable the master lock.

Also ... Really? Are you serious?

What a bizarre thread! uhh.gif

Dude... if you know your xbox is gonna get stolen.. why don't you do something about that rather than let them steal it..?

Any more background on this very strange scenario...?

I think it's safe to assume that he too was stolen, along with his Xbox.
