E:\dashboard\default.xbe. If your's is located elswehere be sure to change the paths used in this tut also to your likings.
People who rather use slayer's (or similar disc) might wanna look here.
Again the warning:
This affects the bootfiles of your xbox and I recomend to only do this with a simple recovery method like a gamesave exploit.
If you feel not secure or not fully understand all the steps in the tut please don't follow it.
a file of aprox 300 mb's
Okay let's start with setting up nkpatcher. use the following settings:
%define ACTUAL_C_DRIVE 8
%define VIRTUAL_C_PATH '\Device\Harddisk0\Partition8\shadowc.img'
this for the shadow C setup
%define VIRTUAL_EEPROM_PATH '\Device\Harddisk0\Partition8\eeprom.bin'
this for the eeprom setup
Ok now compile and sign like usual and put it in the fonts bootpath (I put it on C cuz then it get's hidden later on)
Now reboot xbox and the dash should boot like normal. Now first backup the msdash files to your pc. If you have a live enabled game you only need the audio and the fonts folder (the fonts folder with the retail fonts).
Now if you made a backup of the eeprom put it in C root named as eeprom.bin.
If you don't have it run the evox backup feature to gain it.
Now transfer the 300 mb file to C root named as shadowc.img
Reboot and connect with ftp and try to acces C. If everything went well you should see no files in there.
Okay time to format: Open a raw commands window in the ftp client and type in:
Make sure it really says partition2 in there otherwise bad things will happen.
Now you should get a format key in return that you should use in the next command. next type:
Okay now transfer the dashfiles you backed up to you freshly formatted C drive.
Reboot and for the people that only transfered the fonts and audio folder put in a live game and try to connect to live/make new acount whatever. notice how it upgrades the dash.
I wrote this in like 15 minutes all by memory so please ignore any typo's. All important stuff should be explained well.
Hope it comes in usefull for some people.
