no it uses .67 nkpatcher.. I used evox to keep the size as small as possible but I will look into unleashx.. If I can get it under 10MB then its fine..

Glitch:

I tried the awesome "M$ dash conversion" feature; copied my 5960 (185ead00) to a folder, chose that folder name and it added the files into a sub-folder named C.

No worries: I then deleted that C folder, re-ran it, manually removed the '/C' it appended to the folder name and it worked as expected.

Suggestions:

1: could this particular aspect of the installer also create the shadowc.img (that would nearly fill the C-partition)* so that the user wouldn't subsequently be at risk of dashupdate.xbe clobbering it entirely (unless they decide not to ftp the shadowc.img over)?

2: I haven't checked, but if the virtualEEPROM isn't enabled already could it be (and pre-named) but not actually created, so that a "non-overwritable" virtualEEPROM results?

3: could the "retail" setup be the default (instead of the "basic") so the user must uncheck things if they decide not to have the settings required for that?

_______
* It wasn't discussed in the original thread, but for the "retail" setup dashupdate.xbe only clobbers the entire softmod if there's more than 13.6MB free in C. (With less free, as was discussed, it clobbers the /C/xboxdashdata.185ead00 [plus /C/fonts if it exists] folder and contents).

Addendum: In the latter case (or if it's aborted in time), the tray-closed softmod boot remains operational and would be used to re-instate the open-tray retail boot (by deleting the resultant fonts.du and xboxdashdat.du folders then recovering the stock xboxdashdata.185ead00 folder from backup).

I am updating the installer.. with new installer, shadowc will be autometically created.. There will be three dummy file.. shadowc.img which is shadowc and 300MB, and one 50MB dummy and one 4MB dummy.. This will enable future user updates if they want like adding a new dashboard or adding something.. even if they want to install largest dashboard.. they can just remove the 50MB file to make the space..

virtual eeprom is enable.. virtual eeprom patch will be C:/shadowc/eeprom.bin

I will look into installer documentation if it can be done.. ( I am sure I saw something like that but forgot where it is.. smile.gif

A directory is created not to mixup with other files.. anyway user has to delete the /C at the end..

I have no clue where to find it. I search for "clues" on the blog but, I couldn't find anything, maybe I'm just dumb. Could you PM me or something with an e-mail or whatever?

Hmm, this thread's "gone quiet" already ... was it the copyright challenges, 'war of the mods' or maybe the reality check?

Can anyone think of a viable way to PREVENT dashupdate.xbe's clobbering the dashboard in retail mode?

It was discussed in the original thread (starting here) but went nowhere. Maybe someone in this thread can overcome that "noob-friendliness" obstacle...

does dashupdate.xbe first delet C:/fonts and C:/xboxdashdat.xxx and then create xboxdashdat.du or It first creates xboxdashdat.du and then deletes previous dashboard..

I dont think there will be another update.. since Conker was last XBL punch and it didnt have any updates..

In retail mode, theres really no access to do anything on the C.

I was on Halo 2 last night on live and my dash got overwritten. It seemed what they'd done is overwritten xboxdash.xbe and placed a fonts folder in the root of C with the stock fonts in it. No biggie, quick fix.

so you are saying with a retail dualboot setup when a dashupdate occurs they still are able to replace the xboxdash.xbe and place a fonts folder with retail fonts. How would they do that with a full C drive? How did your xbox boot after the upgrade? To the dash or to an error screen?

I haven't filled up my C drive yet. I just overwrote the Evox with my usual XBMC as dash as soon as I got it running completely. When I booted, either eject or power button, just stock MS dash.

What's the best way to fill up the C drive? A shadow C?
