    Materials Needed :

    1. A JTAG Xbox 360 Console running FreeBoot v0.032 or 0.030
    2. Updated DashLaunch Files
    3. Common Sense
    4. Launch.ini file included with the dashlaunch files.
    5. Backup of NAND (in-case something goes wrong)

    Step 1.

    You are going to want to have all of the dashlaunch files Ive provided above in a convenient place such as you desktop.

    You are going to want to extract the ZIP file I have provided. You will notice there are a few files. The only ones you will be using are, sample_launch.ini and the folder, installer.

    Step 2.

    Once you have all of the files extracted you are going to to rename sample_launch.ini to launch.ini.

    Drag launch.ini into the folder installer. Then drag launch.ini into the files folder.

    Step 3.

    Navigate to you files folder and open launch.ini in notepad.
    You will notice under where it says
    Code:
    [QuickLaunchButtons]
    you will see BUT_X = and Default =. These "codes" are telling you what button to hold, to boot what XEX. For example
    BUT_A =
    BUT_B =
    BUT_X =
    BUT_Y =
    Start =
    Back =
    LBump =
    ; Default is what loads when you hold no buttons
    ; leave this blank if you want NXE as default
    Default =

    Holding RIGHT BUMBER will cause you to boot to NXE.

    Step 4.

    After that you will see directories listed to the right of those "codes" you will see directories. These tell you where dashlaunch will be booting XEX files from. Here is a list of them
    Code:
    ; internal hard disk    Hdd:\
    ; usb memory stick      Usb:\
    ; memory unit           Mu:\
    ; USB memory unit       UsbMu:\
    ; big block NAND mu     FlashMu:\
    ; CD/DVD                Dvd:\     (not recommended to use this one)
    
    First of all here is and example of what mine is

    [QuickLaunchButtons]
    BUT_X = Usb:\APPLICATIONS\C0DE9999\00080000\default.xex
    BUT_Y = Usb:\GAMES\Halo Reach\RTELauncher.xex
    Default = Usb:\APPLICATIONS\FreeStyle\default.xex
    [Settings]
    nxemini = true
    pingpatch = true
    For example if we wanted dashlaunch to boot XEXMenu by default it would look like this (assuming XEXMenu is in you Content folder)

    Code:
    Default = Hdd:\Content\0000000000000000\C0DE9999\00080000\C0DE99990F586558
    That would be booting the CON file, but if you wanted it to boot an XEX simply write default.xex after the name of the folder like so

    Code:
    Default = Hdd:\Content\0000000000000000\C0DE9999\00080000\default.xex
    Step 5.

    If you wanted dashlaunch to boot FreeStyleDash off a USB while holding the B Button, it would look like so

    Code:
    BUT_B = Usb:\Freestyle\default.xex
    That is assuming that Freestyle has its own folder within the root directory of your USB.

    If you have FreeStyle in a applications folder like me it would look more like this.

    Code:
    BUT_B = Usb:\APPLICATIONS\Freestyle\default.xex
    Once you have finished making launch.ini make sure you have it in the files folder and drag all the contents of the installer folder onto a USB.

    Step 6.

    Once completed with that, boot up any XEX launcher of your choice and open default.xex.

    You should see a screen like this

    [​IMG]

    Obviously you are going to click A to install it

    If you have and Older version of dashlaunch previously installed it will ask you if you want to update

    You are going to want to press A to update it.

    It will then ask you if you want to change you settings. I simply say YES

    Here are what the settings are and what they do
    Code:
    [Settings]
    ; if true, brining up miniblade in NXE and then pressing Y will cause launch.xex to relaunch for you
    ; note you must release Y button then press desired QuickLaunchButtons after
    ; if not present default is TRUE
    nxemini = true
    ; if true ping limit will be removed for system link play (thanks FBDev!)
    ; if not present default is FALSE
    pingpatch = false
    ; if true (most) xbla will no longer need yaris patching (thanks mojobojo!)
    ; if not present default is FALSE
    contpatch = false
    ; Normally when a fatal error occurs the xbox will just freeze, setting this to false will cause a reboot or powerdown
    ; if not present default is FALSE
    fatalfreeze = false
    ; when fatalfreeze is set to false, setting this to true will cause the box to reboot, setting it to false will instead have the box shut down
    ; note that this option does NOTHING when fatalfreeze is set to true
    ; if not present default is FALSE
    fatalreboot = false
    

    Enter the setting you want,

    You will then get something saying that the freeboot patches for [insert motherboard name here] are not installed. Click A if you want dashlaunch to be installed.

    And finally you should get this screen. This tells you the installation process has finised.
    [​IMG]

    Reboot and you should boot into the file you told it to in the launch.ini file.

    Please Plus REP if this post helped you :smile:

    You've got two options.

    1. Use a donor NAND

    2. Ur probably doing something wrong. Ive only gotten Christmas lights once. Are you using a Big Block NAND?

    Should I take a video for you? I have the Hash Check removed, It unbans with the Kv and when I install DashLaunch via XeX I do everything tight but I get Christmas lights after it says its done. It only works with my original Kv... It's weird.

    The removed hash checks already has dashlaunch installed. Simply remove the bin files from the dashlaunch installer so that way it just copies over launch.ini and launch.xex. Because when you use the xex to install it it "overwrites" the hack check removed bin so you just remove the bins from the installer folder and use it to copy over the xex and ini

    EDIT : Heres the link http://www.se7ensins.com/forums/topic/316379-release-freeboot-032-with-kvhash-check-removed/

    So basicly I use that and when I go through the startup process I restart Xbox, and it will have DashLaunch installed already and will boot up accordingly to my launch.ini? Thanks man.

    You can delete the files. They're are not needed anymore since it modified you NAND for you.

    It allows you to boot any xex file when you turn on your xbox and allows RTH for Halo 3 and Reach
