While browsing my 360HDD today I noticed a file on it called DASHBOARD. I know the dashboard isnt run off the HDD, otherwise core console would be in trouble.


So what is this file? a Backup of the dash or???

Oh?  What was the path to this file?

BTW, some screens in games are also a Dashboard.

all of the above said, I believe that it starts its bios and runs self checks(unsure of what), then if everything is OK then it retrieves the dash from the NAND chip. Also, if the original dash was ~14 mb, and they "had" to cut it to 4, then there is something else on the chip or else they would not be worried about 10 more megabytes. even if the dash was 14mb, that leaves a total of 114mb of expansion room. why would MS want THAT much expansion room? They either have plans for some MAJOR software upgrade(but why would the cut the first dash down so drastically?), or their is something else stored on the chip.


The NAND is 16MBytes total (Mb=megabit, MB=Megabyte). There may or may not be anything but the dash on there. We'll find out when someone figures how to dump it.
