N00b Question : Editing Evox.ini
Posted 06 June 2009 - 09:47 PM
I searched google, xbox-scene and several other resources but I can't find the basic info I'd like anywhere so I thought to give it a go here.
First, the box runs fine I bought it completely configured and got it set up on the network. I updated xbmc without any troubles. Now I want to fine tune it to my personal preferences...
I would like to edit the evox.ini file and leave out some menu options I don't use.
The thing is that everywhere I find some info people say "you have to edit evox.ini" but I can't find a good description of how it is actually done.
Here's some info on the version of evolution-x
I'm planning to do it as explained in the steps below. Could someone tell me if this is going to work ?
- I downloaded evox.ini to my comp via ftp and opened it with notepad
- The menu section currently looks like this:
- I edited the menu section to:
Is this menu going to work ?
- I saved the edited evox.ini :
save as type: all files
Now for the actual transfer.
- I start up my box and get the evox menu
- I select and run xbmc to get the ftp to work
- Can I log in via ftp from my comp, and just overwrite the evox.ini file in C:\evox.ini ?
Or is this a very bad idea ? Can evox.ini be overwritten when running xbmc or is it going to be in use ? Or could any other very bad things happen ?
Thanks in advance.

As long as you have a boot disc like Frosty's xbox rescue disc ready and ascertain that will boot, it's fairly safe meddling with evox.ini. Running XBMC while meddling with your default dash settings is a good safety measure.
But backup your xbox eeprom contents to PC - just in case.

I'll do some more reading on the (eeprom) backup and rescue disk options.

Item "Xbox Media Player - XBMC","f:\Apps\XBMC\default.xbe"
Section "System Management"
Item "System Settings",ID_Settings
Section "Launch Apps from HD"
Line "- Media and File Managers -",2
Item "Dvd2Xbox Media Copier","e:\Apps\Dvd2Xbox\default.xbe"
Item "PxHDD Loader","e:\Apps\HDDLoader\default.xbe"
Item "Xbox File Explorer","e:\Apps\boXplorer\default.xbe"
Line "- Auto Added Items -",2
Item "Game Management on Xbox HD","e:\Apps\HDDLoader\default.xbe"
Item "Game and Media Backup Tool","e:\Apps\DvD2XboX\default.xbe"
Item "Choose a Different Skin",ID_Skins
Item "MS Dashboard ",ID_MS_Dash
Item "Reboot Xbox",ID_Quick_Reboot
Item "Power OFF Xbox",ID_Power_Off

There are shortcut files in the XBMC folder on the PC. You find the file your Xbox is booting from, probably on the C drive since you are chipped.
Do some reading on it. If you can't figure it out, re-post.
