How is it that x-linux managed to have their fonts avoid the clock loop? I mean, isn't it essentially the same process of booting specially signed, non ms code? They do after all run a modified msdash to link to linux.
Or is there something I've missed? Can anyone help explain?

Now the idea is that when the clock is dead the xbox is still able to reach it's dashboard and therefore will boot to the clock settings screen. This is not a 100 % clock loop proof fix although I never experienced any dangerous looping with the mechfonts and I used them on lots of xboxes.

Simple - They haven't. The MA fonts still clock-loop (althrough it is better than others).

|Ah, ok. Just thought they posted once on their site that their fonts do not suffer the clock loop.|
They may well have. The field tests looked promising. The fact that the clock-loop had not been fixed completely only surfaced after release, due to wide-scale adoption.
