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.

All you need to do is format your HDD in the settings menu. Nothing is saved onto the console itself.
