Dash Launch is an Xbox 360 Dashboard XDK-homebrew RGH/JTAG 360s.

What It Does:
waits for bootanim to finish, then launches a con (you don't see NXE dash)
currently launch.xex is built to launch xexmenu con at

-put launch.xex in the root of your hard drive's content partition
-add the included patches to freeboot/xbr patchset (there is a bonus in there for those who don't have it)

xex source is included, in it's current form it does the minimal amount of work to launch the con if it's not present it should fail to dash with "could not load" error message

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
- 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 - see 1.0 release for a windows patch builder
- 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

What's new/fixed v2.32:
* fixed glitch jasper big block patch installer
* reworked contpatch yet again, should perform equal to xm360 now (thanks node21!)
-new patch only operates on containers of type 000D0000 (XBLA) and 00000002 (ADDONS) of LIVE or PIRS types

What's new/fixed v2.23:
- added hddalive
- added 13599
- relocate external files so old files will no longer be used accidentally
new path is default.xex dirVERSIONfiles
ie: GAME:13599patches_jasper.bin

Whats new/fixed v2.22:
- resolving 'localhost' when the router forwards it to the internet or there is no network at all... bad idea game devs... fixed (Yars', maybe others)
- button handler now more reliably removes Y and A mishandling when held on miniblade exits
- added new note to readme regarding update prompts and avatar data missing
- hopefully extracted new games are now working fine, instead of GOD only
- potential bug corrected in 12611/12625 patch sets
- add 13146 compatibility
- all patch sets updated to fully remove xex bound checks (ie: default.xex on root of USB causing E71)
- "remotenxe" option added to ini(thx adihash!)
- windows button on remote always boots to NXE/media center now(thx adihash!)
- added "guide" and "power" path options to set boot time default override
- changed kxam.patch, first .long must be the kernel version the patches match
- added a check to kxam.patch data to abort on invalid address
- added "nohud" option
- added installer check to verify at least the 1BL segment of patches before installing, will re-ask and warn of possible corruption/brick

Whats new/fixed v2.11 Beta:
* fixed xbox1 launches (thanks folks at x-s and fsd for reporting)

Whats new/fixed v2.10 Beta:
* reworked hooking to be a bit more dynamic and simpler to update
* ini parser fixed, glitch when comment line last line with no blank line after (thanks Toddler!)
* disables updaters (DA2 and other disks; safety)
* minor tweaks to boot time delays, further improves on previous autologin issue

Known Bugs v2.10 Beta:
* Thanks to excellent testers, none were corned by the time of this writing. If you find any during use, find the release thread at xbox-scene and please report them there.
* in freestyle 1.7 and earlier, there was a minor glitch that caused console crashing for some people under rare circumstances, if you haven't updated to RC1.8 or newer please do so.

What's new/fixed v2.09 Beta:
* moved strictly to C, much smaller DLL
* correct bug with busy CON/sometimes ignoring ini for boot time default item
* made boot time quick launch buttons more reliable
* added 1s delay to resolve autologin at boot issue and slower USB hdd issues
* patches updated to remove min version check (DA2)

Known Bugs:
* Some users have found that freestyle set as a default item or returning to freestyle from NXE via miniblade hook is freezing the machine. If you have issue with this bug, please use the 2.08 launch.xex in the files directory and re-run the updater

What's new/fixed v2.07:
* fixed media center extender (thanks jester and antman)
~hopefully this is the last whitelist option needed
* added option "nosysexit" (thanks rhai)

What's new/fixed v2.05:
* update to fbbuild 0.11 patches
* fixed bug with fatal freeze options
* changed installer to use zeropair CB version to determine patch set
* added new options dvdexitdash and xblaexitdash
* added regionspoof, dvdexitdash and xblaexitdash to ini updater
* added instructions to this readme regarding boot time buttons and diagnosing non-ASCII ini files

What's new/fixed v2.05:
* added AP25 xex priveledge filter (fix AC:B GOD/xex, maybe others)

What's new/fixed v2.04:
* fixed a glitch with launching kinect games when a default item is set

Whats New/Fixed v2.03
* At time of this writing, this is ONLY compatible with "freeBOOT" 12611 read info_launch.ini for info on options and setting launch parameters.
* This a core rewrite, major changes were done to the paths used in the ini file, the installer can update these for you if you have the old ini files accessible at the time of install. See the inlcuded sample ini files.
* The installer is now much more robust, and can even flash the appropriate patches to your console for you, all that is required is that you have installed freeboot 12611

What's new/fixed v2.02:
* consider this a beta as we still have no clue why some ini issues occur*
- added version info to data struct exported at ordinal 1
- made number of times button holds are scanned variable, longer window at boot time to sync controller and hold a button
- added region spoofing for XGetGameRegion
- DVD video play from NXE now plays DVD regardless of default setting

What's new/fixed v2.01:
* corrected flash mu mount point (thanks Antho02 at l-s)
* added kernel version check to installer as some xbr using folks seem incapable of reading the first line of this file
