I'm not sure that this is possible, being as the softmod (and bios loader) wouldn't take hold of the system until the console attempts to load the dash (after the flubber has been displayed), so how can the flubber be removed beforehand?
nop it.. or more likey jmp over the flubber code and flash the bios back to the chip. Not sure if, or how well the xbox validates the bios, but sounds like it would work.

I'm fairly certain you have to load the BIOS patcher with an exploit because the BFM stock BIOS will only run signed code, but it should be easy - a standard softmod will do that for you. So, you install PBL as your hacked dash, use that to chainload the BFM stock BIOS, that loads the softmod xboxdash.xbe, which loads the fonts to trigger nkpatcher.
Yes I am am not sure if it is possible to skip the exploit part since you have a retail bios at that point.. but it should be possible to create a tool if one doesn't exist to load a retail bios and patch it at once, or load the bios, then load and run the patcher without calling the bios.. just ideas.
I was thinking of simply setting up a softmod bios I like and dumping the active bios uses xmans bios dumping tool and flashing to the TSOP? Not sure if there are issues there.
