Well unpluged my xbox last night went to play today and BOOM time loop. I did a search on it and tryed some of the ideas.
1.Unplug for 1 min (try 5 times did not work).
2.Press L and R right when the click screen comes up.
(try 20 times did not work)
3.Press eject when "Micosoft" shows up(tryed 9 times did not work).
4.Put the ethernet cable in (its in there still not working)
5.Leave the damn thing running (its still running)

This happened to me last night. Press the eject button right when MS appears under the big X.

just leave it booting when connected too the pc it can take up too 24 hours(it also depends on your fonts)
-after 24 hours, you know it's something else
which fonts are you using?

...or instead of wasting 24 hours you could just try what I said.

k, well i use reloaded and mine popped out. Yours should come out hopefully.
All those tricks about hitting ekject, unplugging cables, L+R, none of them worked, but eventually it came out. Took about 30 minutes the longest time.
Something to remember though, is once I unplugged mine and got it too loop, it wanted to loop every couple times it would boot, it had never ever done this before.
Actually the first time it looped, after power was unplugged, it only took about 5 minutes to come back. But the next day, after being turned off but STILL plugged in, it got stuck in the loop for nearly 40 minutes.
What I did to fix this constant looping was goto the msdashboard and set the date, doesn;t matter what to, i set mine to the 6th, after setting the date with the dashboard it now boots flawlessly again. Until the next time it's unplugged for 5+ hours...
