So I have softmodded my Xbox with SID 5.1 and have UnleashX as my default dashboard. I have XBMC as an app but would like to make it my default dash and keep UnleashX as an app. I just can't figure out axactly how to do this. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

It's the same as it is for all mods. Put XBMC in E:\Apps\XBMC\, edit the Team XBMC shortcut to point to E:\Apps\XBMC\default.xbe, and put the shortcut .xbe and .cfg in place of the current dash.

Now, with SID that could be one of two places, depending on which of the many options you selected when you installed it. It will be either C:\evoxdash.xbe or E:\evoxdash.xbe. Hopefully you'll have picked the right options, and installed virtual eeprom and shadow C to give you a protected softmod, in which case your dash will be at E:\evoxdash.xbe. If it isn't then you might want to fix that first......

I can't figure out how to have a protected softmod, I have tried many different ways with sid but can't figure it out, I also don't know how to do the .cfg shortcut

Have you actually looked at it?

Ok, I will look at all the options again but I haven't seen the option with shadow.

I have looked through all the files through ftp with my computer and don't see the .cfg but I see the .xbe should they be in the same place?

which .xbe have you found? How do you know it's the team XBMC shortcut? How do you know it's even on your Xbox in the first place?

I think there are two matters here with regard to the Shadow C matter:

1). mad pig needs to read the SID Online Manual (easily found) and Chapter 9 in particular.

2). As he's used the most up to date SID he should have a Boot Softmod Menu option from the main menu: System > Boot Softmod Menu. That should allow him to redo the install this time selecting a protected Shadow C option.

I've never done this myself but I don't think you get a XBMC as main dash option because gamesave install/exploit SID doesn't include XBMC.

As Heimdall suggests I suspect mad pig doesn't even have the Team XBMC shortcut on his Xbox.

One simple solution to both problems which I think should work is rather than use SID to install a Shadow C instead download AID, burn to DVD-R and use that to install one of the Shadow C boot options and XBMC as the main dash as well.

Hmm so Auto Installer Deluxe will work the same way SID does? That looks like it will solve all my problems!

SID is essentially just the installer component of AID. AID is the full comprehensive package under one umbrella including everything from dashboards to emulators.

You have to have used SID or another softmod/hardmod first before you can use AID. As it is normally booted from disc (DVD-R), obviously, if the Xbox wasn't already modded it wouldn't work.

This sounds to me like the point you're at - a SIDed Xbox but looking to change to a protected Shadow C and XBMC main dash. It is not the only way of doing this but AID should be able to do that, it is one of the many things it was created to do.

BTW I've never tried the AID XBMC main dash install myself, I prefer UnleashX and XBMC as an app. If you decide to go this route I'll be interested to hear how it goes. Since I've found a XBMC skin I like I've been thinking of changing one of my Xboxes to a XBMC main dash too.
