Download Xbox LIVE Labs from the My Community tab on the Dashboard. It's a series of network tests that will unlock avatar items after a specified period of time has passed:

30 minutes = Lab Coat
1 hour = Brain Helmet
6 hours = Crazy Wig :D

available until March 27

Can you play games while the tests are running?

After the three season you can go back to normal activity with your 360 or do you have to wait until the testing is over?

After the 30 minutes, you can exit out & come back later for the 1 & 6 hour achievements.

Might want to make sure if you have a download limit on your ISP, as some people are saying there's large amounts of data being downloaded from Microsoft.

I never post, and I seldomly visit this board, but I thought I'd mention that they do not specify exactly how much data transfer is occurring.... Zonic505 has a very good point.

Basically, whatever they are testing that they require us to stay connected a manditory 30 minutes, it is free testing for them, wrapped up nicely in a little bow. Also, given that it does not run in the background is another context sensitive clue, I believe that it is a great deal of information.

tl;dr
I'd stay away from that 6 hour wig if I were you guys.

Is it a 6-hour total for the wig, or 6 hours in one shot?

Yay for no download limit, regardless.

Feel free to add me, CAGs. Could always use another bud to play something with.

6 hours total. You can do 3 hours 1 day, then 3 hours another day.

The real purpose behind this is for Microsoft to cause all old 360s to get the RROD so people have to buy slims.

Anyone know how to access it? I downloaded it successfully, but have no idea how to boot it up.

I posted this in the other thread but I'll post it here too.

If you want Xbox Live Labs but aren't in the US, the old downloading it on a US Gamertag trick won't quite work, as it doesn't show up in the Game Library, it launches from the Community tab.

What you want to do is download it on the US tag, sign into your real tag (UK in my case), go to Quick Launch and it's under Latest Downloads.


You can also boot it up on your US tag, sign out and sign in as your main tag, then run the tests. They'll show your US Avatar but will unlock on your main profile.
