Hello world, I bought an Xbox from eBay and it had your website information on a skin pre-installed. It seems that the custom home-brew on the device does not allow me to access the Microsoft Dashboard, it is being skipped when I try to hover over it, would you have any answers to help me unlock it? I really need it for GTA 3, thank you very much. Thanks for taking the time to look at my thread.

you should still be able to play gta on it, should be able to put the disc in and boot it not sure what the issue you are having but if its not allowing for ms dash you can get aid or hexen and have it put a new xbox dash on so that you can select it. For faster help join our discord Smile

Since the Microsoft Dashboard menu item is being skipped over, the file to start it does not exist on the hard drive.

Post a directory listing of the files/folders in the root of the Xbox's C drive.

FTP into the console to obtain such a list.

Next, post a copy of the evox.ini file so we can see how evoxdash is configured.

In my experience this is quite a common problem with EvoX dashboards and softmods because during the softmod the MS dash, which may well still be present and working on the C:\drive, is renamed.

The evox.ini file is probably pointing at C:\xboxdash.xbe or there is actually no entry for the MS dash at all. I've seen that with some older EvoX dash installs. It just needs to be pointed at the correct C:\MS dash XBE but that needs to be identified and checked it works first. So follow kaos_engr's instructions.

Even if the MS dash is not working you can install stock files somewhere else and point the evox.ini path at that instead.

Personally once this particular matter is sorted I'd update the softmod, get rid of the EvoX main dash and install UnleashX. With its file manager/built in text editor it makes fixing problems easier than doing it remotely via FTP.

You can also use it to install custom soundtracks without needing the MS dash but I'd admit that it is easier if you do have it available, particularly for ripping CDs in the required .wma format. I certainly would not want to use a Xbox without of working MS dash for that and several other good reasons.
