Dash Launch v2.09 Beta
Posted by XanTium | March 3 23:51 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
cOz released a new version of Dash Launch for JTAG 360s.

What's new/fixed:
* moved strictly to C, much smaller DLL
* correct bug with busy CON/sometimes ignoring ini for boot time default item
* made boot time quick launch buttons more reliable
* added 1s delay to resolve autologin at boot issue and slower USB hdd issues
* patches updated to remove min version check (DA2)

Known Bugs:
* Some users have found that freestyle set as a default item or returning to freestyle from NXE via miniblade hook is freezing the machine. If you have issue with this bug, please use the 2.08 launch.xex in the files directory and re-run the updater

If the 12625 updater is on the disk, it will try to force you to install it - breaking that would also break installing avatar and kinect data...

The only thing i don't understand is why do we need this to play DA2? if DA2 has a new update ( an ew dashboard) wouldn't it make sense to wait for a new freeboot? or am I missing something?

It doesn't have the update on the disc, but it does have have a minversion of 12625, so you would need to update via live or USB/CD in order to run it, even on a stock box.

You can patch the xex using xorloser's X360GameHack, but that would cause further issues with TU's and DLC in the future.

Dashlaunch saves the day... again smile.gif

So I was at 2.08 and applied this 2.09 version--now my JTAG hangs at startup. It gets partway into the swirling startup logo, stutters for a moment and then locks everything. Not quite sure what to do now. Any advice?

Solved (sort of), in case anybody else runs into this same issue.

I have a Jasper 256 with AUD_CLAMP wiring, and a 750GB Western Digital Scoripo Blue (WD7500BPVT) in the internal shell. There is a jumper setting which enables RPS (Reduced Power Spinup), which does just what it says--it boots slightly slower in order to draw less power at spinup:

WD Scoprio Drive Jumper Settings

I jumpered my drive that way because doing so eliminated the 3-4 times out of 100 that my JTAG did not boot properly. Figuring the 360 would always take longer to startup than the drive will, I saw no reason not to enable RPS. However, this new 2.09 version supposedly boots more quickly than the older versions.

Knowing that, I thought Dashlauch may be looking for launch.ini file before the drive is even ready. It seems like that may be the case, because with the drive connected, I was unable to boot at all and consistently hung during the 360 startup logo. Without the drive connected, I booted with 100% success.

The "fix" for me was booting without the drive, then connecting it while powered on, which forced the 360 to warm reboot without Dashlaunch in the mix. I then ran the 2.08 installer, downgraded Dashlaunch, and now I am back in business.

I hope the final version handles this scenario a little more gracefully.

Did you have freestyle set as the default item, so that it starts that instead of NXE? If so see "known problems" in the opening post of this thread.

If anything, 2.09 should be more reliable provided what you have mentioned is the actual issue, as it just waits for ~3s longer before actually doing anything and 1s of that (always) before looking for ini on anything..

I have a Samsung F4 2TB and FSD2 set as the default boot, DashLaunch 2.09 gives me no issues regardless of when the drive powers up.

The console does sit at the logo screen for 1-2 seconds before powering up and syncing controller with the Samsung connected, but that's down to the drive and not DashLaunch (did the same with 2.08).
