Red Screen and XIM3's Anti-Brick feature
« on: 10:25 PM - 02/09/11 »
Upon bootup, XIM3 has a verification step that makes sure everything checks out correctly. If the device has been tampered with or memory has otherwise been corrupted, XIM3 will display a red screen. You should never see this. But, if you do, donít worry, you havenít bricked your device.

To unbrick, there is a small button on the side of your device. What you need to do is:

1) Press and hold down that button (using a paper clip)
2) While continuing to hold, plug your XIM3 into your PC
3) Wait for XIM3 display the USB icon (at this point, you are in "PC Mode")
4) Run XIMFlash (or XIMManager if you running the Beta)
5) Choose "Restore Factory Defaults" and Flash
6) Replug into your Xbox and your XIM3 will be restored

Please report this to us if you ever see this happen.
