Last year, my xbox got the RROD, when I sent it into xbox a rep called me and gave me a code for 1 month of xbox live to say sorry for the problem. He read to me the code and I wrote it down. I repeated the code and confirmed everything correct. I saved this code thinking I could use it now since I am done with finals. Now I realize I am missing 1 digit b/c an xbox code is 25 digits total as I only have 24. I am too lazy to go thru the millions of various combinations but its either a number or letter in any order. So cheers to anyone who can find it!

I don't want to see this code wasted as I know their are hackers in neowin who can figure this out.

So here is the free 1 month xbox live code as I wrote it:

So to any hacker out there who can create a code to figure out the missing digit, here you go!!!!

If you ever solve plz post wat the missing digit was cuz I am just really curious as to which character I missed.

Well looking at other codes. The letter is missing in the first 'bunch'. So your to have to jiggle around with that one.

Then again, its suppose to be 5-5-5-5-5 So :s

It's not worth the hassle trying to solve it. Just ring up MS and tell them what happened. They'll probably just give you another one.

The missing character could be anywhere, a possible 25 positions. The missing character is alphanumeric, giving 36 possibilities. That's 900 possible solutions. Nobody is going to sit down and try out all 900.

Can a program not be made to deal with it? Then again, for 1 month of Live, it's not really worth it.

How would that make someone smart? Making a program in c# to randomly generate all combinations and try them with the online code enter page on xbox.com would be fairly simple.

Doesn't major nelson and acey bongo release codes all the time for things on twitter, with one or 2 digits missing?

They always get snapped up in seconds

Yes, but those tell you where the code is, so it limits the number of times you have to try to a max of 36. And sometimes they even tell you if it's a number or a letter, making it even easier.

Can't we use Combinatorial or Permutations to figure it out? Since he did give every other letters and numbers in the correct position, I am assuming.

wow CONGRATZ!!!! that was faster than I thought. Can I ask how did you solve it? I am like everyone else I dont want to go through the fuss of doing 900 permutations either but i know that there is always someone out there in the internet to figure it out! and hey its a free 1 month of xbox live, sounds worthy enough!

The OP said the code is for anyone that who is smart. :p I don't have a technical reason.
