description:
-------------
ok, heres a short description of what this app should do one day:
the idea is to be able to switch dashboards without having to rename xbe files or
other stuff. dashboard switcher will consist of two parts:
*one config tool which writes the name of the dash into an ini file
*one launch tool which reads the ini file and launches the dash written there.
u can put the config tool where u want to and launch it from ur dash menu or the way u like.
the 2nd tool will be the one which gets loaded after booting. this one will then launch the
dashboard u chose. if theres no ini then it will launch the config screen. easy isnt it?

NOTE: THIS PROGRAM IS STILL IN AN EARLY PHASE SO MOST OF THE FEATURES LISTED ABOVE ARENT CODED YET
READ THE CHANGELOG AND THE STILL TO COME PART BELOW TO SEE WHAT THIS APP CAN DO AT THE MOMENT!

ok before we start with the install instructions please stand by for a short message from our sponsor:
check www.konsole-modding.de (#ereignishorizont on EFNet) for hardware, lowest price guaranteed!!
feel free to ask whatever you feel like

installation:
-------------
ok, first of all you should have a ftp connection established with your xbox. if you dont have one, check
www.xbox-scene.com for tutorials or something. once connected to your xbox you should rename your avadash.xbe
to avalaunch_ehz.xbe and your evoxdash.xbe to evoxdash_ehz.xbe. then upload the whole package into c:, there
should be a new evoxdash.xbe in the rootdir now. this is what your rootdir should look like:
c:\evoxdash_ehz.xbe
c:\avalaunch_ehz.xbe
c:\evoxdash.xbe
c:\arial24Normal.ttf
c:\Switcherdata\ and subfolders + files
once everything is all set, just reboot the box.
