UnleashX for my "home" system because I like having the game preview videos...but I use Xbmc for my car system since its nice having access to music, videos, and games from the same dash.

UnleashX,

I wouldn't want to have the risk of screwing up my softmod (no Softmod vs Hardmod flames please, 50 bucks is a lot of money for what you get from a hardmod) everytime I update XBMC besides that running UnleashX has the advantage that I can turn off XBMC FTP server and it's easier to upgrade XBMC.

Not to hijack the thread, but if you or the one doing the softmod, used one of Krayzies installers (simply the best imo) the read THIS thread.

XBMC lover here. When I first modded my Xbox and installed UnleashX, I thought it was the dashboard I would ever need along with Avalaunch. But after seeing XBMC on Xbins I started fiddling with it for a little everytime I booted my Xbox (back when Project Mayhem I was the default skin). I became so used to it that I made it my default dashboard. I guess this is like meeting a girl and talking to her everyday then you & her become boyfriend & girlfriend then husband & wife biggrin.gif

When it comes to modding other customers Xbox consoles, I show them the differences between UnleashX, Avalaunch, and XBMC. The majority (about 95%) choose XBMC to be their main dash and Avalaunch for Xbox-to-Xbox transfers smile.gif

I Use evox. But i use xmbc for movies, music,. pix etc, yada yada. I would use it, if ya could use it as the straight up dash if it would load at boot up.

I have all 3 dashes installed tho evox. ( my main ) unleash X ( my second choice ) and then avalaunch. 3rd choice. pop.gif

It's good but the only drawback right now is the one-way transferring of files. Once the support for transferring files from another Xbox to mine gets working then XBMC will have everything needed without launching another dashboard biggrin.gif

Of course i'll need Avalaunch to update XBMC wink.gif

One way means xbox you are playing around on filemanger cant affect other one, so you can only kill the one you are controlling.

heh, ava update; you are funny tongue.gif
igr = can do it with the right bios
boot to right dash = you sir need to learn how to read tuts
ftp speed = i dunno, i can get the full 100Mbps out of my network using xbmc and filezilla client.

as far as i'm concerned xbmc can do everything that i need it to, and is much sexier than everything else. I just can't for the life of me understand why a person would use something like evox when there are things like xbmc. Haven't used the others, but have absolutely no reason to....oh, i use dvd2xbox when i am updating xbmc tongue.gif

Evox is my main dash, but I end up being in xbmc more often, so I may be switching.
