For those of you like myself who were looking for a way to have multiple instances of a multisystem emulator (instead of having seperate rom folders for each system within one emulator) without overwriting configs/saves,

Any hex editor should work, I used this one Please login or register to see this link.

Make a copy of the desired emulator folder on your pc. In this example I used Xboyadvance_v24b07

Rename the folder to something more specific: I chose Xboyadvance_GB

Open the default .xbe in the Xboyadvance_GB folder in your hex editor

Select search > replace  - Make sure you've clicked the boxes labelled "text string" under the "find" and "replace with" sections, and uncheck the "case sensitive" option at the bottom.

In the "find" field enter xboyadvance

In the "replace with" field enter xboyadvanca (replace with whatever name you like, but it must be the same number of characters as xboyadvance - 11 characters)

Save the .xbe and ftp the folder to your xbox, you'll have to setup the default directories and configure everything, but once  you're done it should be all set.

You can follow the same method, and replace the xboyadvance with something different the second time, I just used xboyadvanca, and xboyadvancb, on mine., and the default that came with the emu for the third, and I now have 3 independent versions with their own configs, previews, saves etc.

I posted this tutorial hoping it would help some other picky people like myself, you can use it for different emulators like Neogenesis or Meka-X, but the search strings would change according to the name of the emulator of course.

I'm also attaching two edited Xboyadvance ..XBE's. You should be able to just plop these into copies of the emu folder and ftp it to your xbox, though you'll still have to configure the emu of course.

Alternatively you can just replace E:\S with D:\S and E:\M with D:\M

i made a script for XBMC that will do this for emulators. It in the XBMC-Emustation repo in my github. 

What the above does it make the emulator save all its stuff in its root directory instead of E, so all you need to do is copy it a couple times and change the xbe title.

      Qwix101 Ftp to your xbox
      Create xiso's
      extract xiso's
      patch default xex
      and more....

      Change Log:
      Note:  Please read the Qwix_FAQ.htm file included with
             Qwix!  Even with that file included in the RAR,
             many of those questions come up all the time.
      This is a bugfix release and adds no new features.
      Qwix 1.01 fixes:
       - Reworked FTP transfer buffers for improved Windows
         performance during and after transfers, which can
         also increase transfer speeds (especially boost mode).
       - Changed default transfer buffer size from 512KB to 1MB.
       - Fixed a transfer thread leak which caused various
         problems with Qwix after transferring an ISO.
       - Fixed a problem that prevented game icons from being
         downloaded after transferring an ISO.
       - Fixed a problem that prevented batch properties from
         taking effect if you pushed a button on the toolbar
         before clicking in any other control first.
       - Made the XBE rename case-sensitive when deciding
         whether it should rewrite the XBE file or not.
       - Disabled the "Use advanced Avalaunch features" option
         in the connection editor until the SITE REFRESH
         command is fixed in Avalaunch.  Yes, that's all that
         the option does.  No, it doesn't make transfers slower.
       - Fixed the taskbar disappearing act and an occasional
         OLE32.DLL access violation, both on Win98/WinME.
       - Fixed a few font and color issues, making things a bit
         more consistent with certain themes and platforms.
       - Fixed a problem that prevented a transfer to the
         root directory of an Xbox drive.
       - Fixed a random access violation that was caused by
         the component used for all the lists and trees in
         the Qwix user interface.
       - Made the local PC folder browser show the proper folder
         name for shortcut items like My Network Places shares.
       - Fixed the Rename ISO feature from the Scan Folders
         right-click (from the Load ISO screen, not Scan Titles).
