    Just get Slayer 2.7 auto installer. It has the XBMC on it and can install it for you. There is another one called Frank's XBMC autoinstaller that has just XBMC on it and will install it from a CD.
    Both are easy and quick ways.

    both Slayer 2.7 and the Franks XBMC auto installer are meant to be put on disc and used that way. The one i got was an ISO and you just burn it to DVD, stick it in and press reset and the Xbox loads it right up. From there it can install about anything you want, format a hard drive, flash a chip, back up your EEPROM files and that sort of thing.

    The Franks XBMC installer will just install XBMC

    There are so many many many releases of this complicated dash that it's impossible to say what is exactly wrong that causes it to freeze.
    I am yet to see a completely bug free one.. The best seems to be on the xwizard installer. re-skinning it isn't a great option as in every release things have been moved or changed slightly.
    Not suitable as a main dash because of the bugs I run it as an application, then a skin fault isn't a fatal error.

    The best idea in your situation is get a few different release versions (not the latest.. It is faulty) and put them all in differently named folders in e:/apps, play about with skinning them and testing which ones seem stable and work well.. launch with unleash.. then when you are happy delete all the others, and make a backup of the one you are satisfied with.
    That's what I did and it worked for me.

    go to ISOhunt or if you want faster speeds you can probably read this guide and get them on #Xbins through IRC
    http://www.xtreme-source.com/tutorials-xbox/1625-how-connect-xbins.html
    or

    http://www.xtreme-source.com/tutorials-xbox/4324-guide-xbins.html

    The easiest program i have used was the Frank's XBMC auto installer.
    you just delete the old version you have now with a file browser, then burn that to a disc, stick it in and it will do the rest.
    Or you can delete just the files in the folder you have now, download XBMC, then FTP it into that empty folder (this way your dashboard links will still work)
