    from http://www.wikixbox360.com/page/Troubleshooting+FAQ

    Resetting to factory defaults / resetting parental locks (unconfirmed)
    This was posted on the xbox-scene forums and might work only with older versions of Xbox 360 dashboard.

    Press the following key combination

    Left Trigger, Right Trigger, X, Y, Left Bumper, Right Bumper, Up, Left Bumper, Left Bumper, X


    This should give you a dialogue asking whether or not you want to reset your system to factory default settings.
    hope it helps.

    That original code was for street fighter wasnt it? You did it at the capcom logo and then it let you do something like select the same character or something like that wasnt it?
