I have modded my Xbox with a DuoX2.
This seems to be working.

But for the life of me, I cannot get my ISO to run on it to load EvolutionX.
Basically trying to set this up as a XBMC, so if anyone has any helpful info for me, that would be greatly appreciated.

Or even better, if someone can make a copy of their CD/RW or DVD for me, that would be even better.

Thanks =)

OK, finally got it working.
Took me a wee while to figure out what the heck to do.

- Downloaded ISO of Avalaunch 0.49
- Renamed avalaunch.xbe to default.xbe
- Created XISO (Special xbox iso file) using QUIX
- Burnt the ISO (any iso burning program would work) to a DVD-R (NOT DVD+R !)
- Loaded the Xbox with DVD in drive, this enables an FTP agent
- Went into the file manager, and completly erased the entire C drive contents, but you could rename a few things instead if you didnt want to get rid of the EVOX dash (rename evoxdash.xbe to evoxdash.old)

EDIT: The reason I deleted everything, is the C-Drive is only 500mb and it only had 30mb free. XBVMC was around about 120mb

- Uploaded the XBMC ISO I downloaded and created using QUIX
nb: QUIX was used to both Create the XISO for XBMC and it was used to UPLOAD the newly created ISO to the C drive of the Xbox
- Using the Avalaunch file manager, I then renamed the xbmc default.xbe to evoxdash.xbe (which was uploaded to the xbox using QUIX)

Turned xbox off, and then on again, viola, XBMC is now my default dashboard.

So NOW, knowing what I know now, I can probably get this going in less than 15 minutes after the xbox has been modded.

Thanks for the support guys =)
