my dash will be working fine, then i go into notepade and change to code to allow backgrounds.(just removing the comments "//"). Then i ftp back the new default.xip and reboot my xbox. I then will keep rebooting forever until i cut it off. I have to use my boot disc to access it. Anyone know why its doing that?

just happened to me, I had UIX in a dashboard folder on my e drive, and just copied it to c drive and changed xbe to evoxdash.xbe to boot as my default, and now it just keeps rebooting the bios.

yep you messed something up.....

reverse what you did in the script ftp it back and you should be fine....


as for the reboot after moving to c:\ drive.. did you also copy over the entire user.iinterfacex.dash folder?

the only thing i can find is that the folder on the C: has a capital U i.e. User.interface.x.dash and it is lower case on E drive, and it won't let me rename it with lower case.

I usually have this problem when I enter in code incorrectly in the default.xip/xap

yeah, put it in the dir of the skin that you want it to show in, but
you have to go into default.xap/default.xip and change a line.... look for
CODE
DEF theBackground Background
{
   skyColor 0 0 0
   //backdrop ImageTexture { url "xboxlogo.xbx" }
}

and change it to
CODE
DEF theBackground Background
{
   skyColor 0 0 0
   backdrop ImageTexture { url "background.xbx" }
}

hope that helped smile.gif

Thats all i changed on the code. It then keeps rebooting. I have the Ind 5003 bios. I can use my evox boot disc and put an new copy of Uix on there, but when i try to transfer an edited default.xip back it goes into the rebooting loop again.
