What softmod are you using?

EDIT: And no offense, but why would you want to go from UnleashX to EvoX, Evox hasn't been updated since 2 years ago or more?

I had unleashX until a couple of days ago for about 2 years. I changed to XBMC and it's really nice. Like, REALLY nice. Check out some of the screenshots from this forum. It makes it look like a 360 and the features are awesome. Also, XBMC has a nice shortcut tool that allows u to make it the default start up dashboard. If ur modded box doesn't look flashy, what's the point laugh.gif

Despite what dash u end up using, find it off xbins, extract, ftp to ur apps folder, done biggrin.gif

EvoX = Xbox BIOS
Evolution-X = Dashboard
Xbox Media Center (XBMC) = Application, but can be set as dashboard like I did

Evolution-X = old and crappy sleeping.gif
XBMC = new and sexy laugh.gif

About ur chip, when u start up ur xbox do u have a special splash screen? Does it say anything below the splash screen?

Naw u can keep them. Although I'd really suggest ditching the evox idea.

Good choice, unleash is better than evox too btw. For skinning help, stop into the XBMC forum, good stuff goin on there.
