    Hey Insanenutter, not really sure why this is happening. _jtag.ini file is the original that came with xeBuild.

    C:\Users\henry>Desktop\xebuild\xeBuild.exe -t jtag -c zephyr -f 14699 -d mydata
    updflash.bin
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    xeBuild v1.00.356
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    building jtag image

    ******* ERROR: could not open '.\14699\_jtag.ini'
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    xeBuild Finished. Have a nice day.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    press <enter> to quit...

    Edit: Never mind, used a different program and updated to 14719 so this doesn't matter to me right now.

    No if you update your retail nand to the update released last week your RGH mode will no longer work.

    Following this will update you to 14699, presuming you are on a lower dash version for your RGH nand.

    You dont need to update it all the time, however you will need to update when a major update is released. I do the major update at the end of each year and have managed not to update until the same time next year.

    Usually when you need to update its to support new hardware or features, e.g. the Kinect, or Smartglass which will be released later this year. Updates released throughout the year are usually very minor, e.g. the washed out colour issue a few people had, or anti piracy updates which are not required for a Jtag / RGH users.

    If you install Dashlaunch: https://digiex.net/downloads/downlo...launch-3-02-download-jtag-rgh-xbox-360-a.html that will allow games that need a newer dashboard version than the one you currently have to load, providing they don't need any libraries not on your system. So basically with Dash launch installed if a game doesn't work thats when you need to update.

    Yes you can use FSD you just need to change your launch.ini (on the root of your hard drive) to boot FSD and not XEX Menu.

    You can dump your existing nand, as explained in this tutorial.

    Many thanks for the quick and accurate answer :), one last question though :), doesn't the latest FSD contain DashLaunch or the option to install it with it and configure it to launch FSD at the start up?

    There is an Auto Freestye Dash installer here which i believe has an option to download the latest dashlaunch. I can not confirm it will work on anything higher than 14699 however, if it doesnt you might have to re flash your consoles nand.

    Great instructions! Thank you very much, but I have a small "weird" problem. It seems if I go under Games - My Games and choose either XeXMenu or Freestyle Dash it just kicks me to the home of the xbox. But if from home I choose Quick Play and select XeXmenu it works fine. Any idea why!? I dont really like Xex and prefer Freestyle dash and I dont know what to do. Please advise!?

    Thank you!

    you might have to use the latest version of DashLaunch to do it, maybe the shortcut is corrupt?
