The first step is to unrar the archive that you have downloaded; to do this you will need a program such as 7-Zip or WinRAR to do so. DO NOT try and burn the RAR file on to a CD / DVD as it will not work.
This is a screenshot of all the files you should have.
To extract the archive, right-click on the xbhqaid4.rar file, and use your program of choice (whether it be 7-Zip or WinRar) to extract the archive. When it’s extracted, you will see a folder called Auto.Installer.Deluxe.v4.50.FINAL.Xbox-Hq. A screenshot below shows the contents of the archive.
Using the AID ISO Updater Program
Now, before you burn the ISO you may want to add some additional extras to Auto-Installer Deluxe 4, like for example a translation pack or a dummy file pack (which will basically insert either a 100mb or 1gb dummy file at the start of the ISO). You can find the ISO updater Program in the Tools folder of the archive you extracted.
This is the first screen you will see on the update tool. Your first job is to select the Auto-Installer Deluxe 4 ISO file (highlighted green in the screenshot to the right).
After selecting the ISO you need to select the update file (highlighted green in the top section of the screenshot below). You will see down at the bottom of the status screen the files that have been loaded. You can clear the selected updates using the ”Clear filelist” button highlighted in blue. Once you are done selecting the updates, click on the Save ISO button highlighted in red. After you select the location and filename of the ISO it will start working away.
Once the new image has been made you will see a popup window confirming that everything is successful. This means that the ISO has been created and is now ready for burning.
The AID Addon / Update Packs
In the package is included a selection of addon packs. The way they are listed is the order that you should load them into your ISO. This page will explain what their purposes are.
AID4.Dummyfile.xxxx This adds a 1 GB Dummy file to your ISO image (recommended for DVD users only). The Dummy file is the first file put in the ISO and creates a gap from the start of the disc, making it easier for your Xbox DVD Laser to read the disc.
AID4.Addon.BIOS.Pack. xxxx: This Addon pack adds a BIOS flashing feature to AID, using the EvoX interface for flashing. This is only recommended for advanced users that know what they are doing, as incorrect use of the BIOS flashing features can damage your TSOP / Modchip.
AID4.Addon.DHCP.Patch. xxxx: This Addon fixes up the network settings to DHCP. Please note if you did not install the BIOS Pack that you will not be able to use it, even though it is displayed in the menu. It will even patch Softmod installs.
AID4.Addon.Soundtrack.AIDx: This Addon pack will include some background music whilst you are using the AID 4 installer. Soundtrack.AID2 and Soundtrack.AID3 are the soundtracks from the previous installer.
AID4.Addon.TrainerPack.xxxx: This Addon pack contains all the Game Trainers for your Xbox games.
AID4.Addon.XBMC.Scripts.xxxx: This Addon pack includes all the extra scripts for Xbox Media Center. This was done so that they weren’t forced installed with the program, as they can take a while to install.
AID4.SkinPack.xxxx: These Addon packs install additional skins for the particular dashboard. I have also included some XXX skins this time as well. Even though there may not be too many, you could easily remake the Skinpack if you know what you are doing. Just pay close attention to the directory structure after you extract it, as this is necessary in order for the update pack to be integrated correctly.
AID4.Romset.xxxx: These Addon packs install ROMs for your Emulators. Further explanation on what systems / consoles use which emulator are explained in Appendix K of this manual.
