Dash Launch 3.12

----------------

Known Issues:

----------------

- *** WARNING ***

One of the testers observed a console reaching out to live despite liveblock only

when fakelive or autofake was enabled. If you intend a keyvault to not get banned,

do not use it on a glitch/jtag machine!

- Autologin pop-up blob does not display properly... live with it.

Currently the project is missing the following supported translations:

Japanese, Korean, Chinese Simplified, Chinese traditional

Currently supplied translations:

English, French, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, German, Italian, Polish

The skin pack includes the sources used to skin dash launch as well as the

string files if anyone wishes to create a translation to one of the above

languages (including English, as I know my explanations are not always easy to

understand.) Also included is a c# based editor for the string files to assist

in translation.

External fonts, background image and skins may be used by this,

simply place skin.xzp and/or font.ttf and/or background.png (1020x720) beside

default.xex. If neither location has a font file supplied the system font

on flash will be used.

================================================================================

Overview - what it does

================================================================================

- It will launch a XeX or CON file from the path you specified in launch.ini

as long as it's valid

- Depending on the button you hold when the xbox is trying to load the NXE, it

will divert to the xex/con tied to that button or return to default as

defined in launch.ini

- At boot time it is possible to subvert default item and/or NXE loading, but

you must wait until the controller syncs to do so

- Depending which button is held when closing miniblade in NXE (use Y button to

close, release then hold a QL button) it will quick launch a CON or XEX

from your ini file

- allows one to patch kernel/xam at bootup with a freeBOOT patch style bin file

from usb or hdd (in that order) must be in root of the device and be named

"kxam.patch" and be no larger than 0x4000 bytes. Again, kxam.patch binary

format is the same as a compiled freeboot patch bin, but uses real virtual

addresses rather than offsets - as of 2.22 the first 32bit value must instead

be the version of the kernel the patches apply to

- with the included patch set, launch.xex acts as a helper to detect when

xbox1 emulator loads, allowing memory unlock patch and xbox1 emulator

to function together

================================================================================

Installation

================================================================================

- have the required hacked kernel version installed on the console

- get the installer to a place where you can run it, and do so. Follow onscreen

instructions if any. The installer will prompt you if it needs to update the

kernel/hv patches and will give you an opportunity to configure stuff.

- edit the options, and dont forget to save them somewhere if you want them to

be applied next boot. Don't forget to set configapp to the installer, so

you can go to it any time via miniblades' system settings (hold RB to go to

real system settings)

- the back button is your friend if you are wondering what button to push

================================================================================

Updaters and Avatars

================================================================================

- this version of dash launch contains an update blocker that is enabled by

default. There are two ways around this if you wish to install the bits and

pieces used by the dash for kinect and avatars

1 - place the updater that matches this version on removable media, and

rename the folder from $SystemUpdate to $$ystemUpdate

----OR----

2 - place an ini where dash launch can find it and set the noupdater option

to false - noupdater = false

Updates seem to work best if memory stick is inserted while in official dash

****

NOTE that some games WILL prompt you to update the console if avatars are

not installed, this doesn't mean they have an update to actually put in, it

just means it needs avatar/kinect bins/resources to run

****

================================================================================

LIVEblocker

================================================================================

- if you are like me, and keep your consoles off the net then this option is

for you. It's capable of blocking the resolution of the LIVE specific

servers and does so by default, with an additional option in the ini file

it will attempt to block access to all MS servers. The default option is

set up to block only LIVE servers, which still allows programs like FSD to

access covers and such. The blocks lists are:

weak:

^xemacs.xboxlive.com$

^xeas.xboxlive.com$

^xetgs.xboxlive.com$

^xexds.xboxlive.com$

^piflc.xboxlive.com$

^siflc.xboxlive.com$

^msac.xboxlive.com$

^xlink.xboxlive.com$

^xuacs.xboxlive.com$

^sts.xboxlive.com$

^xam.xboxlive.com$

^notice.xbox.com$

^macs.xbox.com$

^rad.msn.com$

passport.net$

strong:

xboxlive.com$

xbox.com$

nsatc.net$

microsoft.com$

passport.net$

bing.net$

msn.com$

where:

somedomain.com$ = ends with somedomain.com

^somesub.somedomain = starts with somesub.somedomain

^somesub.somedomain.com$ = is exactly somesub.somedomain.com

================================================================================

Important - going to NXE

================================================================================

- if you need to go back to NXE and have default item set in ini, HOLD RB while

exiting game via miniblade or exit using one of the miniblade options like

family settings

================================================================================

INI notes

================================================================================

-it's possible to have multiple ini files, priority is as they appear in the list

(** it is NOT recommended to launch USB con/xex from hdd ini **)

the first one found on the devices in that order will be the one used at boot.

-see http://code.jellycan.com/simpleini/ for more info on the ini parser

================================================================================

autoswap option functionality

================================================================================

GOD ie:

disk1 = Hdd:\Content\0000000000000000\01234567\00004000\01234567890123456789;

will have 01234567890123456789.data folder beside it

disk2 = Hdd:\Content\0000000000000000\01234567\00004000\98765432109876543210;

will have 98765432109876543210.data folder beside it

EXTRACTED ie:

disk1 = Hdd:\games\somegame\disk1\default.xex;

disk2 = Hdd:\games\somegame\disk2\default.xex;

- GOD/NXE disk rips on the same media in the same folder will automatically

be found with no special naming convention

- EXTRACTED games with the naming above for each disk with the disk# folders all in

the same folder on the same media will be found without an ini file

- swapping between disks contained on different media is not supported

~brought to you by cOz~

//2014

================================================================================

To Do

================================================================================

- fix hud loading of nxe rips

- everything else

================================================================================

Known Bugs

================================================================================

- some well used NAND images with earlier versions of DL already installed seem

incapable of being updated with larger sized files, it is recommended for

the time being to make a clean NAND image with the most recent/up to date

image builder if you run into this issue

- nxe disk rips when launched from 16197+ metro still work, if you get an err

dismiss it and launch again (it's a resource busy issue in official dash)

- some situations are causing a black screen when starting installer, it somehow seems to

be related to USB devices and/or signed in profiles. If you run into this issue, try the debug

version of installer - it's slower because it's logging to disk but apparently works fine.

- I'm sure you'll find some bugs, please see the links earlier in this doc

for a place to post them where they will be seen

================================================================================

Supported Versions

================================================================================

at time of this writing, this is ONLY compatible with RETAIL kernel versions:

9199, 12611, 12625, 13146, 13599, 13604, 14699, 14717, 14719, 15574, 16197, 16202, 16203,

16537, 16547, 16747

13599 is the first glitch version supported (embedded patches)

14717 is the first glitch2 version supported (embedded patches)

================================================================================

ChangeLog

================================================================================

V3.12

- default behaviour of live block is now to use strong block rules (at least until ini is loaded)

- fix compatibility issues with dashes created before AP25 was deployed (spoof the AP functions on older versions)

- limit fakelive/autofake to 14717+ kernels

- add export so plugins can find out where they were loaded from during dllMain() (it's volatile, copy it in Main() if you need it!)

- update 16547 patches to delay network bringup in xam until launch.xex loads

- add trinity internal usb to hddkeepalive (for those that have a usb hdd hooked up there)

- add 16747

when this release dashlauch 3.13??

When cOz is ready to release it'll be released, untill then you'll have to wait... there is never any mention of when it'll be released, only a few statements from me and a bunch of others which talks to cOz where we mention it will be comming, others i guess also state it as it's pretty much a rule... new dash == new dashlaunch version...

Get a new keyboard, and while you're at it replace your button mashing finger(s) with some regular ones ;)

Hi sorry my not good English if someone not understand write to me i try explain better.

p.s. when i write ex mean "for example"

 

If i Own a XBOX360 whit Dual Nand Demon Team Xecuter When a new dashboard is released (for example 16756) until someone (coz,swizzy etc.) release the new Dashalaunch,jrunner,xebuild ecc.

 

The choise I Can do this:

 

Update the original nand at the latest dashboard (ex. 16756) so i can play my games online

And Use the old 16747 on the glitch hack nand so i can play the backup of my original games offline from hdd

 

THE PROBLEM:

The problem anyway is about the "Kinect and Avatar update" because the latest dashboard on the original nand (ex 16756) use the 16756 avatar\kinect update,and the 16747 on the nand glitch hack use the 16747 kinect and avatar update.

 

So when i run then nand glitch hack,avatar and kinect update dont work and i cant play kinect games or avatar etc.

 

Because OR i install the 16756 or i install the 16747,can't install all 2..

 

THE "ALTERNATIVE USB PEN FIX TRICK" for use KINECT and AVATAR update

This problem can be fixed by this way (I also already know this=):

1)Remove the HDD from the console,Format usb pen whit 360 and install the kinect and update dashboard for the old (ex 16747) on the usbpen

2)Before i start glitch hack nand i plug in the usb pen so i can use the kinect and avatar update in the 16747 or old dashboard

3)Before i start original nand i remove the usb pen so i can use the kinect and avatar update in the new dashboard 16756

 

But My question is:

1) Can this "Trick" be done in some way whitout the USB pen,and only use some "trick patch" installation file on the hardisk or the nand flash of the console?

2) Can someone developer\hacker create something for this problem is fixed whitout use the usb pen? i not know a XEX file plugin or something like this....

 

Because i think if we can do this "alternative usb pen fix trick" whitout use the USB pen but only use the HDD or some XEX FILE plugin or something like this is better,coz not need the usb pen.

Well, wait for Dashlaunch 3.13 and stop using the unofficially patched one, or perhaps make your own patched version which doesn't have this issue ;)

Nope, we don't have a specified release date yet, i don't know of a patched dashlaunch that doesn't freeze etheir other then the official update... it doesn't freeze...

We'll release Dashlaunch 3.13, xeBuild 1.13 and xeBuild GUI 2.094 when we feel that it's actually "required" for something other then Xbox LIVE, before such a thing occurs asking about a release date is going to be pointless...

You're not going to be able to get "online" in a way that you can connect to Xbox Live, this is the reason we're holding 3.13 back... we don't support ppl going to Xbox Live with RGH/JTAG consoles

Where does dash lunch app save

So where can I open it

In xex menu

Dashlaunch consists of 2 parts;

1. The installer/configurator

2. The system stuff (which is installed in the nand as launch.xex and lhelper.xex)

The installer is probably what you're looking for, so... download Dashlaunch and run the default.xex in the "installer" folder

DL 3.12 don't support 16756, you are using a unofficial Dashlaunch on your nand, which is why you are having these issues... whoever did the patching of it didn't do it properly and didn't test it fully etheir...

There is really no reason to be on 16756 tho, so i don't understand why you're there in the first place? if it's to play on live you're not welcome here...

I think we can expect dashlaunch 3.13 + xebuild for 16756 to be released in september-october, when the new games come out.
