I just downloaded the True Blue msdash skin and am having difficulty installing it. The readme says:

QUOTE
-Patch your xbe with the color mod preset using HeXbe
-After patching insert the xbx's in the appropriate xip
  -xbox4.xbx -> mainmenu5.xip
  -outline.xbx -> settings3.xip and music2.xip
  -GameHilite_01.xbx -> default.xip


I am not exactly sure what to do, but here is what I did:
First I opened up my msdash.xbe file and patched it with the Gcues_True_Blue.xbp file using HeXbe. Then I patched this .xbe file with a font exploit...should I do this (I am using UDE/UXE - i forgot which)? Then I opened up mainmenu.xip with WinXIP and replaced the original xbox4.xbx with the skinned one. I did the same with the others. Then I uploaded my default.xbe and the other files to replace the originals. In addition to the .xip files in the C:/xboxdashdata.185a6100/ folder, I found xbox4.xbx and GameHilite01.xbx in the C:/xodash/media/xbx/ folder. Should I replace these files? For some reason, I tried all sort of combinations (replacing files in xbx folder + patched xbe, replace + no patched, no replace + patched, and no replace + no patched), all to no avail (error 21 everytime). Were any of you able to get the msdash skin to work? Thanks for your time and any assistance you may give!

This is stupid, dont do that =)

OK now what your going to have to find is the re-sign code for the m$ dash

whenever you patch it, you needed to resign the dash or else you get an error code

I dont thnik there are any links on the net anymoer, so your gonna have to go to #teamuix and ask someone like JbOnE or Gcue, they may still have these files.

Wrong again, you now need a program called winXIP not WinZIP

open up the files [ .xip s] and inject the .xbx's in the ones it tells u to

Yes, i was able to get this to work, but i'd recomend using somthing like UIX, because your m$ dash aint gonna have many usefull features, unlike UIX

EDIT: Your dash MUST be version 4920, its on the original xbox live games, i think splintercell 1 had the updater.xbe on the disk and it was version 4920

Hope this helps
