I found this tutorial which explains how to install XeX Menu and Freestyle dash from running a copy of the software from a DVD in a firmware flashed drive.

Do I need one of those really old dashboard consoles that do not have the August 2009 update?

Free60.org says that JTAG requires hardware modification, but the tutorial above implies that I can install and run dashboards, emulators, GOD and other games by only needing a flashed drive to start the process.

Is it possible to install Freestyle Dash and have its full functionality on a newly updated XBOX 360?

The title of the page you linked to is a bit of a giveaway - "The Ultimate Tutorial for setting up a J-Tag Console!"

So the answer is no - your Xbox has to be JTAG hacked to run homebrew.

Thank you for the fast reply. I have seen threads elsewhere that say non-JTAG XBLA and GOD. Do you know of a way to boot Games on Demand from a non-JTAG 360?

Sure, download and pay for them through Xbox Live, they'll be signed to your specific console and you'll be able to run them without any modifications whatsoever.
