This error is caused by a faulty RF board and is indicated by 2 green and 2 red lights which swap every few seconds.
It shows that when the console is in manufacturing mode as well, there are rumors that Microsoft does that to modded consoles that were sent in for repairs.
So it can also occur after an improper NAND update.
When the Ethernet cable is connected it also shows E49 on the screen which means that it couldnt connect to the gateway server in the factory.
The specific description is: Mfgbootlauncher can not connect to the gateway.
