This tutorial is to show everyone how to upgrade their Xbox Original Dashboard to Xbox Media Center with Auto Installer Deluxe.

This method is very simple and doesnt require ftping to the system or any files being patched.

What you need?
A Modded Xbox
Auto Installer Deluxe 4
Dvd Burner

What is Xbox Media Center?
XBMC supports most common audio, video, and image formats, playlists, audio visualizations, slideshows, weather forecasts reporting, and third-party plugins. It is network-capable (internet and LAN shares). Unlike proprietary media center applications like Windows Media Center from Microsoft, or other free-software media center applications such as MediaPortal and MythTV, XBMC Media Center does not yet include native DVR/PVR TV-recording functionality or an EPG TV-Guide interface of its own, it does however offer the possibility to integrate such functionality through third-party plugins.

Thanks for the propaganda. Trouble is, this doesn't work if your Xbox is softmodded with Krayzie, or Kingroach, or indeed any softmod that isn't SID, because it assumes incorrectly that all modded Xboxes have their dash named evoxdash.xbe. For the same reason it also doesn't work on chipped or flashed Xboxes that don't have their primary dash named evoxdash.xbe and in the root of C, E, F or G.

Further, it assumes that the user knows if their primary dash is on C, or E, or F, or G, and that's dangerous because many users have no idea where their dash is located.

The bottom line is, if your Xbox is softmodded with anything other than SID, or if you don't know how your Xbox is modded, then don't assume that AID will help. At best it will do nothing, at worst it will brick your Xbox.

In passing, I'd also suggest that a link to a video showing selected bits of screenshots when using AID, with no information about exactly which options to choose, and no mention any of the potential problems you might encounter, doesn't even come close to being a tutorial.
