Ok I am sick of people asking this question...so here is a little tutorial I put together. I will update it with pictures and maybe even how to remove other dashes and not just EvoX.Last Update: 01-25-04Making UnleashX The Default Dashboard TUTORIAL v1.01st Step: Removal of EvolutionX
Ok, In order for UnleashX to be your default dashboard, so when you turn on your xbox the first dash to load is UnleashX, you must remove your current dashboard. I will show how to remove the EvoX dashboard Build 3935, but removal of other builds is practically the same.
1- Open up your favorite FTP program. I use FlashFXP
2- Make sure your xbox is hooked up to your network and is on and ready to connect via FTP
3- Find the IP address of your Xbox assigned by DHCP (if you use a hub or a switch or something w/o DHCP, you will need to set a static IP. I assume if you have already setup a static IP you know what I'm talking about
). It is displayed on-screen in EvoX
4- Once you are connected to your Xbox, navigate to your C: directory.
5- Once you are there, these are the following files/folders you have to remove:-Bios (Folder)-Skin (Folder)-Trainers (Folder)-Trainers Source.zip (File-which shouldn't be there unless you transferred everything over...it is unneeded for the dash to load)-evox.ini (File)
-evoxdash.xbe (File) - (evoxdash.xbe is the default name found in the EvoX build 3935 rar. You may have changed this depending on what your bios can boot to. So pretty much delete the EvoX xbe file...if you changed it, you should know the name of what you changed it to)
6- Now you have completely deleted the EvoX dashboard, and BE SURE YOU DO NOT TURN YOUR XBOX OFF AT THIS POINT
. If you do you will have to have an EvoX cd handy and well that is a different tutorial 2nd Step: Installing UnleashX
I am using UnleashX v0.26.0119A. Unless something is majorly changed...I assume this will work for future versions.
1- Now go to the folder you have the .zip file of UnleashX, and extract to a temporary folder.
2- In your ftp client, navigate through your computer to the folder you just extracted the UnleashX dash .zip file to.
3- Select the following files on your pc and transfer them over to the C:/ of your xbox:-Config.xml (File)-default.xbe (File)
4- Now you must change that "default.xbe" file you just transferred over to one of the following:
Those are the boot sequences for the Xecuter2 4981 Bios, which is the bios I recommend.
5- Now you can disconnect your FTP client and restart your Xbox, and the UnleashX dash will boot up if you did everything right.
