My Setup:
Xbox V1.0
SmartXX 1
Bios: Varies... Usualliy M7EF,X2, or IndBios (both either latest or very current) I usually have IGR on.


I boot into C and generally start up from EvoX, UnleashX, or Ava. I'm trying to run UIX as an application to try it out.

UIX.xbe lives on the root level of F, then the user.interface.x.dash folder. The paths in my ini file are unchanged "apps, games, etc..". I have deleted the cache files in UDATA, and am running the 'fixed' version of the .xbe. I have also tried moving the whole package to the root level of C.

no matter what I do, the thing reboots my XBOX when I try to select the Apps or Games menu (I haven't tried the other ones as the folders don't currently exist.)-- *every time*.

Also sometimes when I go to SYSTEM > Dash Configuration > General Settings and change anything... I can't back out of the menu... it just highlights the 'B' button icon and beeps at me.

This dash looks promising... but I can't seem to do much besides poke around in the various menus.

What the hell is going on?

Thanks in advance for the help.

its your paths - they must be set in the ini (correctly).

My apps and games folders are both in F. I've tried setting the path to f:\apps, f:\apps\, f:\\apps (same for games) with no luck... come to think of it, the only one I've not tried is f:\\apps\

wonder if that's it?

... which is what I indicated in my first post.....that the paths from the ini were unchanged....anyhow.. here's what it looks like.
CODE

[Music On Boot]
volume=0.89
enabled=false
[Main Menu Tabs]
Main Tab 4=System
Main Tab 3=Hard Drive
Main Tab 2=Hard Drive
Main Tab 1=Music
[AutoLaunch Media]
Launch On Insert=ask
[Naming Method]
use xbe names=true
[Dashboard Settings]
Current Skin=green
Dash Style=stock
[Network Settings]
XboxIPType=static
XboxIP=192.168.1.77
SubnetMask=255.255.255.0
Gateway=192.168.1.1
FTP Login=xbox
FTP Password=xbox
FTP Port=21
FTP Show Sizes=true
FTP Use Caps=false
[Applications]
Path=apps
Name=Applications
[Dashboards]
Path=dashboards
Name=Dashboards
[Emulators]
Path=emulators
Name=Emulators
[Games]
Path=games
Name=Games
So if I'm doing something wrong, and it has to to with my paths, what is it? I probably should have mentioned before that my 'apps' directory is on the root of F as well as my 'games' directory.

have you tried just for testing purposes to create an apps or games folder on the root of the E drive? , i also have had this problem too however i dont recall fixing it but it works for me now. You arent by any chance running to copies of uix because i know from experiece this can cause problems too.

if there is nothing in any of the referenced folders it will reboot everytime.
eg. reference to dash in the ini file and the folder dash in the f drive doesn't have anyprograms:
f:\
dash\
evox\
default.xbe
ava\
default.xbe

if you select the dashboard button and no folders/default.xbe's there it will reboot.
hope this helps.

The folder's I'm trying to go into (ie Apps and games) have files / folders in them... I don't have anything in dash or emu, but i'm not trying to select those options either....

Would that still cause a problem for UIX?

I haven't... but I can. I forget the size of the E drive.. but I'm fairly sure it won't house my games folder.. it's approaching 100 gigs. I suppose I could put a couple of files / folders in there just for testing.

Thanks for the help.. I'll report back when I have tried these things.

I've just worked this one out myself after being stuck with it for a a while. You only need to set the path as apps. The dash will auto scan all partitions until it finds a folder called apps. If this exists it will stop rebooting your box. Then to get all your apps to show up in the dash you need to go into the applications menu and press Y to refresh the cache.

I had my paths set as 'apps', 'games' etc. (see text dump of my ini file above).... unless you see something wrong I'm missing in there, I'm stumped.

The only other thing i can think of is the difference between Apps and apps. Not sure if UIX distinguishes between letter cases though. Are you sure you refreshed the cache using Y?

My folder is entitled 'apps' and my path is also entitled 'apps' (again please see text from my ini file above). I never get to the point where pressing Y to refresh the cache.. the xbox reboots the second I select the Applications menu in UIX.
