I have an X3 installed and all set up, I have my new HDD installed, now I need my XBMC dashboard. I can't get any dashboard to set up through Slayers, I haven't got AID to read, and I can't get FTP working to go that route either. Most tutorials I can find all assume that I already have Evox or something already but I need my first dash. If I'm posting this topic and have somehow missed something similar or relevant I apologize.

Slayers won't help. Start by reading the X3 manual
, particularly the section under X3 Config Live about dashboard names and the dashboard boot drive. Also, make sure you have the latest BIOS (X3.3294).

I rechecked and I do have the latest BIOS. As far as configuring the dash names and boot drive, I've set it to xbmc.xbe and the boot drive to F: because I'm using a large HDD.
EDIT: I'm not sure if it matters, but I do have G: drive that is bigger still than the F:, I just went with F: at the suggestion of the manual.

The manual is wrong IMHO. Put your default dash on C or E, and call it evoxdash.xbe. Put XBMC at E:\Apps\XBMC\default.xbe (i.e. unpack it to E:\Apps\XBMC\), and put the team XBMC shortcut in your dash location (C:\evoxdash.xbe).

See that was my initial issue, I can't get FlashFXP or any other client to connect. I've tried to find guides but I can't find any helpful ones that explain how to do it from the x3 BIOS. And that's why I ended up trying to use AID and Slayers. I'm trying now and I still can't get a connection. By the way, thank you for helping with this, I've been battling it on and off for weeks.
UPDATE: I got FTP to work, and I got things working as far as I can tell. I boot straight to XBMC whenever I start up my Xbox now. You've been a great help and very patient with me, thank you. Now I've just got to get some of my games and such on here!
