Pardon the noobness but I've currently resurrected an Xbox and cloned it to a 2TB hard drive.

I've added the latest version I can find of XBMC and am able to see the G: partition in FTP sessions but looks like Unleash X still can't see it?  

I have a copy of Please login or register to see this link.  and wanted to upgrade to that but can't find any resources for updating without the live update feature.

Can anyone link any available documentation or possibly some advice on how to proceed?  

Also, if there is any go-to guides to getting everything current can you please provide some links?  Reddit seems to be a little dodgy with content.

Thank you for your help!

you can just ftp and overwrite the unleash files with the new ones. but i mean i think the last time unleash was update was 2007. Before you do anything go into your settings on unleash, and enable F & G partitions. the config file for unleash can disable them

Ok thank you for that.  I enabled G: in the Settings and am now able to see games I put on this partition.  

Looks like the Dash version I'm on is 0.38.0515A Build 565 so maybe a minor update? 

Anyways I'm updated now with the G drive showing.  

Are there any good recommendations for modern skins? I found Please login or register to see this link.  lurking through old posts but don't know if there are more around.

To be honest I just prefer the default skins in the various color shades. the Ogxbox(this forum) one is very nice too, its clean. The one that comes with the jcrocky5 softmod is so nice too, once again very clean. Yes the small update may be worth it who knows. It should be as simple as overwriting the config file and default.xbe for unleash. dont change paths or anything.

Since I didn't softmod my system  from the softmodding tool (Only cloned) what directories would I extract to my skins directory to get the standard backgrounds? 

My best guess is I extract the "Please login or register to see this link. " directories into to my skins folder.

just find the config file for unleash x, i think its called config.cfg or config.xml. open it in notepad, and ctrl+f skins. Actually i think you can go on your xbox and it tells you somewhere in settings too "skins path" or something

Yes, the Info page obtained by press the Y button will show the Path and Physical Location that the dashboard is running from, which xbe file.

5bd6c333c039d_UnleashXsExecubtablePathfromSystemInfoscreen.png.f4fb16a6af288d7373a518b6263fbf7e.png

The physical location will look something like:

\Device\HardDisk0\PartitionN\<subfolder(s)>\default.xbe where: 

Partition1 is the E: drive

Partition2 the C: drive

Partition6 = F:, and 

 Partition7 = G:

3, 4 and 5 are the X, Y and Z game cache drives respectively.

The Skins Path is found under System -> Settings -> System.  Scroll down to the Skin subsection:

5bd6c09123292_UnleashXSkinsPath.png.022b23750b9eefea916b03e717ba5a7c.png

As shown above, the Skins Path value of Skins means they are found in a subfolder named Skins under the Path previously found for the dashboard's XBE file on the System Info page displayed by pressing the Y button.  Press B to go back to the previous menu page.

UnleashX version 0.39.528A Build 584 is the last release.  It does have a bug when used with the FileZilla FTP client displaying the root directory listing, drive letters, making it impossible to enter them by double-clicking on the drive letter.  There's extraneous date text on each drive letter entry - sometimes. 

Rocky5 has hex edit patched the version he includes in his Xbox Softmodding Tool Build v1.1.4 to fix this issue.  From what I recall, he sets the date to a fixed value for all file transfers. 

The bug occurs in UnleashX's timestamp string processing.  Sometimes the glitch does not occur; however, more often than not it does.

The next to last release, UnleashX v0.39.0222A Build 572, does not seem to have this FTP server timestamp processing glitch.

      Hi like the titles says i'm interessed in some good skins especially on avalaunch actually

      After TSOP (unleashx and evox m8+ f and G) Bios,fitting a new hdd  to my xbox I installed XBMC trough hexen2018.
      But there are a few questions I have considering the coöperation between these 2 dashes. UnleashX is my main dash and XBMC is installed as an app.
      Since I am new too the XBOX Scene, I don't know what I will use as my main Dash.
      There are a few things I can't work out.
      If I exit XBMC it switches to the standard MS dash, not the evolution dash. Is this something I can configure XBMC gives menu options for applications and emulators. But I don't see the applications I have installed on my unleash dashboard here. Is it just pointing at a different location or is there something wrong/ do they mean other type of applications. It would be nice that when I Rip a game, install an emulator they will appear both on unleashx and on XBMC.. If I push the eject button on my xbox, sometimes it reboots. Somebody knows something about that?

      TSOP - IS THE ONBOARD CHIP THAT BOOTS THE MS BIOS , YOU WILL WANT TO BOOT FROM THIS FOR XBOX LIVE.
      LPC - THE HOLES WHERE THE MODCHIP CONNECT TO THE MOBO USING WIRES OR PINHEADER OR QUICKSOLDER METHODS.
      FRAG - FLASHES RED AND GREEN. THE XBOX IS TELLING YOU SOMETHING IS WRONG AND IT CANNOT BOOT POSSIBLY DUE TO POOR SOLDERING.
      BOOT - WHEN THE XBOX LOADS A BIOS AND STARTS UP THIS PROCESS IS CALLED BOOTING.
      BIOS - THE PROGRAM THAT IS STORED ON THE MODCHIP OR TSOP. IT'S EITHER MS OR HACKED (EVOX OR X2).
      PIN HEADER - 2 ROWS OF PINS THAT YOU SOLDER INTO THE LPC HOLES AND THEN SIMPLY PLUG YOUR CHIP ONTO IT.
      MOBO - SIMPLY MEANS THE XBOX MOTHERBOARD.
      D0 - THIS IS A LITTLE VIA ON THE TOP OF THE MOBO OR A SMALL PAD ON THE BOTTOMSIDE OF THE MOBO THAT WHEN GROUNDED PREVENTS THE TSOP BOOTING.
      VIA - A VERY SMALL LITTLE CIRCLE. YOU WILL NEED PRACTICE BEFORE YOU CAN SOLDER TO THESE. YOU CAN AVOID THESE ON EARLIER MODELS BUT NOT ON A V1.6
      EVOX DASHBOARD - AN ALTERNATE DASHBOARD FOR THE XBOX THAT HAS A MENU TO LOAD GAMES , FLASH YOUR BIOS ETC. NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH EVOX BIOS WHICH IS DIFFERENT AGAIN. EVOX DASHBOARD IS MADE UP OF A NUMBER OF FILES THAT YOU TRANSFER ONTO YOUR HARD DRIVE OR A CDRW. THE LATEST VERSION IS 3935.
      EVOX BIOS - A HACKED BIOS FOR THE XBOX , IT ALLOWS YOU TO PLAY BACKUP GAMES AND RUN COOL APPS LIKE EVOX DASHBOARD. THE LASTEST BIOS IS M8 PLUS.
      X2 BIOS - A HACKED BIOS FOR THE XBOX , IT ALLOWS YOU TO PLAY BACKUP GAMES AND RUN COOL APPS LIKE EVOX DASHBOARD. THE LASTEST BIOS IS 4983.
      HOT SWAP - THE NAME GIVEN TO THE TECHNIQUE OF BOOTING THE XBOX WITH ONE MODCHIP (WITH THE LID OFF AND THE DVDROM TURNED AROUND THE WRONG WAY) AND THEN UNPLUGGING THE MODCHIP FROM THE HEADERPIN AND REPLACING IT WITH A BLANK ONE OR ONE THAT HAS HAD A BAD FLASH AND THEN FLASHING THIS CHIP.
      FLASHING - PROGRAMMING A BLANK CHIP OR REPROGRAMMING A CHIP WITH A BIOS FILE. SPIDERCHIP AND ALADDINS NEED A 256K BIOS. DUOX2 NEED A 512K BIOS. ALSO V1.6 XBOX'S REQUIRE THE EVOX M8 PLUS V1.6 BIOS. OTHER MODELS CAN USE THE X2 4981 OR X2 4983 BIOS.
      FLASHBIOS - A SPECIAL BIOS THAT ONLY LETS YOU DO A FEW FUNCTIONS. (WONT PLAY BACKUP GAMES). ITS MAIN PURPOSE IS TO FLASH YOUR MODCHIP WITH A HACKED BIOS.
      LOCK - LOCKS A HARD DRIVE SO THE MICROSOFT BIOS AND DASHBOARD WILL BOOT. THIS IS NEEDED FOR XBOX LIVE.
      UNLOCK - UNLOCKS A HARD DRIVE FOR USE IN A PC. YOU MUST UNLOCK A XBOX HARD DRIVE BEFORE IT CAN BE USED IN A COMPUTER.
