just tested to make sure i wasnt giving you wrong info. I switched the led color for when im playing a game to flashing red green, and it still did that while playing the game, switched fan from auto to 5.0x and it stayed on that, and even the ftp server was still running, WHILE halo2 was running. this could be a glitch with my dash and this isnt supposed to happen, but it does on mine @_@
Not that I'm trying to call you a liar, but this can't possibly be true (at the very least the part about the FTP server still running while Halo 2 is running; I'm not sure if the LED and fan settings are somehow changed in the EEPROM). The Xbox is only capable of running one process at a time (think of it as only being able to run one .xbe at a time). When you launch Halo 2 from UnleashX, then Halo 2 replaces UnleashX as the running process, so there's no way that the UnleashX FTP server can still be active while Halo 2 is running.
The XBOX kernel is only capable of running one process (or application - they are the same thing to the kernel) at a time. Note that processes can, however, spawn multiple threads. Your dashboard is really just a sophisticated application that has the ability to launch other applications (technically, when you launch an application from your dashboard, it actually replaces your dashboard as the currently executing process).
