Introduction

Auto-Installer Deluxe is an installer system designed for the Xbox console, offering the user various ways to either update their current Xbox setup, or to prepare a brand new Hard Drive to be used with the console.

Unlike some of the other auto-installer systems that are released that will cover the basics required to set up your console, Auto-Installer Deluxe will do everything that you would need, and more. Simple One-Click features make it easier than ever for the beginner to set up their Xbox, however it still has all the flexibility of manual installation features for the more advanced user.

The History of Auto-Installer Deluxe

The original Auto-Installer Deluxe was made back in December 2004. The main focus at this time was mainly just to build an installer system which could install various Dashboards (unlike Slayers Auto-Installer system which was the most popular at that time, which only gave the choice of one dashboard). As well as the different Dashboards to choose from, there was also an extensive collection of Applications and Emulators added, so that the user could get the full potential from their Xbox.

Version 2.0 came out in 2005, which was the introduction of a new system, where the installer disc could be upgraded with various addon and update packs. This system allowed the Auto-Installer Deluxe disc to always stay up-to-date with the latest bugfixes, new Software, Rom packs for Emulators, or anything else that needed to be released for the system.

The most recent version (v4.50) was released in April 2009, which basically continued on the work from v1-v3, adding some more features and software along the way. Update packs are released roughly every two months which will ensure that the Auto-Installer Deluxe system is the most up-to-date and the most flexible package available for the Xbox console.

Features

Here is a list of features that Auto-Installer Deluxe has included:

  • Format your new Hard Drive as soon as you boot up the disc.
  • Format your existing Hard Drive for a new installation.
  • Back up and Restore Game Saves, Partitions etc.
  • Lock / Unlock your Hard Drive (via ConfigMagic).
  • One-Click install options for Modchip and Softmod users.
  • Install the latest version of the MS Xbox Dashboard.
  • Install / Uninstall Homebrew Dashboards (Evox, Avalaunch, etc).
  • Install / Uninstall Homebrew Applications (Xbox Media Centre, etc).
  • Install / Uninstall Homebrew Emulators (MAME, etc).
  • Install / Reinstall / Uninstall Softmod installations.
  • Install Auto-Installer Deluxe to your Hard Drive.
  • Install Phoenix BIOS Loader (PBL) on your Xbox.
  • Install XSelect on your Xbox.

  • Software Added:
    • Xbox Media Center 2005-09-22


2005-09-21: v3.0 Beta 7

  • Changed: "Patch MS 5960 Dash" option in AID, now a MS backup is not needed as it's directly loaded from AID.
  • Fixed: Problem that occured again with DHCP switch.


2005-09-18: v3.0 Beta 6 - RELEASED TO TESTERS

  • Fixed: Small problem with the DHCP switch. Basically a file was missing and the switch would only work when the BIOS Addon Pack was used. Also fixed some more small menu bugs.


2005-09-18: v3.0 Beta 5

  • Changed: Changed all the files back to ZIP due to problems with RAR compression.
  • Changed: Removed all the dashboard skins (besides default if need be) to make it possible for CD-R / CD-RW users to use this disc. The skins can be embedded into the ISO if need be via Update Packs.

2005-09-14: v3.0 Beta 4

2005-09-15: v3.0 Beta 3

  • Fixed: Just minor altering and fixing of the installation scripts. Hopefully they are now finalised and won't need any more editing.

  • Added: New skins for the installer.
  • Added: Option to Boot MS Dashboard with PBL (Advanced Tools section).
  • Added: Softmodding section is the same as SID 3.1 Final.
  • Added: Static / DHCP mode switch in installer. The installer has config scripts correctly configured for both setups now, without the use of an update pack.
  • Removed: EvolutionX 3921 Dashboard, it was pointless to keep both 3921 and 3935 versions.


2005-09-01: v3.0 Beta 1

  • Added: BIOS Flashing menu which was in AID 1.0, but wasremoved in AID 2.0 due to reports of it not being able to flash. The list of flashable ROMs has now been updated so it hopefully should be able to work with most chips. This comes in the form of an addon pack, becuase the BIOS files take up nearly 50mb, which can be crutial CD space for CD-R/CD-RW users.
  • Changed: Backup / Restore system, now it will just copy the backup to your selected location instead of zipping it. Plenty of bugs were removed too.
  • Changed: Most install files now use the RAR compression system (this reduces the filesize a little). The Emulators are still left in ZIP for backwards compatibility with any Rom Addon packs that were released for AID v2.0.
  • Fixed: Error when installing DaphneX to E Drive (would install to F instead).
  • Software Added:
    • Dvd2Xbox 0.7.0

  • Fixed: Problem with XBMC keymap.xml file (I got reports that the latest keymap file didn't work so I used an older version (from the previous day). Still had problems so I compiled XBMC 2005-08-03 to resolve the problem.
  • Fixed: Problem with text in the screensaver for the AID 2 Install menu. The text was taking up too much room on the screen so I made the text smaller in length.
  • Fixed: Problem with the music in the AID 2 Install menu. It would be very jerky and cut off the tunes prematurely, so I re-encoded them and now they are fine.
  • Software Added:
    • FBAXXX 2005-08-02
    • Xbox Media Center 2005-08-03

2004-10-20 - Version 1.0 Beta 2

  • First beta released for testing. There was upload problems with the first beta, and since then I have made some changes (even though nobody knows any different ofcourse, hehehe).
  • Zipped contents on the ISO to reduce image size, was 544 MB now 315 MB. This seemed to slow down the installation process, so unless the installer goes over 700 MB when completed I will discard this to make it quicker on the installation side of things.
  • Removed BIOS binaries from the beta to reduce space. They are taken from my BIOS-CD pack and come in 256k, 512k, and 1mb sizes. The Menu selection for flashing is available, but I am still to design a skin for this, plus include the bios files in the ISO.
  • Removed Stream Pack from XBMC due to very long installation times, both zipped and unzipped. There has also been reports that some of these streaMS are faulty, and since I don't really have the time to check them all I've just discarded them. I apologise to everyone that was hoping for this inclusion, but I have to be practical about this.


2004-10-19 - Version 1.0 Beta 1 - Content Cuont: Apps (19), Dash (6), Emus (20), Total (45)

  • First build of the Auto-Installer using UnleashX as the frontend. More progress made with this in one day than what it took weeks to try and figure out with Media X Menu.
  • Never released for testing. This was due to upload problems at the time, and since I did some more work to it while trying to upload; I decided not to bother with this version.
  • During the beta stage, this will not been made public. I have hand-selected a few worthy beta testers to help me get rid of bugs, problems etc. before I make a public release.
