Well for starters have you got a modchip or a softmod

But for a suggestion replace the unleashX xbe file with a custom xbe that points to where XBMC is installed now. jbone has made a great little tool to do just that check it out here

Xbe Shortcut Maker v1.0

Creates shortcut xbes for xbox titles keeping your current method of organization intact so you can keep your hd roots as uncluttered as possible, as well as add items to dash menus without moving or creating duplicate installs. Simply point the target path to the xbe you wish to launch and the output xbe will be a 60kb shortcut that will simply launch the given title.

Well then you either have a very old crappy softmod or your replacing the wrong file
while unleashX is running press the Y button and then scroll down to the bottom it will tell you the exact place where it is installed and what the xbe is called

yeah so you need to replace c:\dashboard\default.xbe with the shortcut one but make sure you get the path to xbmc right maybe you need to habbi sign the xbe but really you shouldn't
do it from ftp

I just did it a few hours ago, actually. All I had to do was:

Move the XBMC folder from my F:/Apps to E:/apps
Copy default.xbe to C: and rename it xbmc.xbe
Copy xboxmediacenter.xml to C:

And that's about it. I have an X3 and already gave xbmc.xbe boot priority so it may be different for you.

is c:\dashboard\Xbox Media Center\default.xbe were you actually have a working and tested copy of xbmc installed ? seems a strange place to have it more like e:\apps\xbmc or something. Habbi sign what soft mod fonts look for when booting but you should have either a bios loader or nkpatcher doing that for you

If you really want xbmc in c: then just replace unleashX with it full stop no shortcut file. The shortcut file was to bounce your bios to the currently working copy of xbmc you allready have installed
