From the guys who brought you the awesome F3 dashboard, here is a totally new dashboard replacement brought to you by Phoenix!

Some of you might know us from F3, the soon to be number 2 dashboard replacement for Xbox 360.
We are Phoenix, and we bring you Aurora, the new number one dashboard replacement!

With Aurora we went back to the core of what a dashboard should do, which is launch your titles, and look fancy while doing that.
Aurora boots straight into the title list and uses filters and sort instead of predefined tabs.
Written from the ground up it has been optimized to run fast, smooth and stable.

This is the first alpha version we want to share with you, while it contains disabled features and probably some bugs, it has proven to be pretty stable already.


  • Boot straight into coverflow
  • Lua scripts for filters, sort methods and subtitles
  • Support locale files to translate the dashboard and skin
  • Custom coverflow layouts
  • Quick browse game list
  • Game details
  • Manage your game list when your devices aren't connected
  • And of course fully compatible with Freestyle Plugin (LiNK) and the new and improved Unity website
Disabled features in alpha:

  • View Previews / achievements / related content

Please post bugs in the support forum.
Or check out #RealModScene on Efnet for support

Current versions:
0.1a r431 Binaries
0.1a r431 Skin
3.0b r801 Freestyle Plugin

This is awesome news. Not sure if I am ready to switch from FSD though. lol.
Honestly I was never really impressed with fsd..yeah its looks slick and has some nice featured but once it gets cluttered its always caused issue and made me have to start over...always reinstalling.

Ever since I started using the normal dash and xex menu to launch stuff ive never had a single issue

I thought FSD team had disbanded? Great someone is making new a dash. Ya FSD has some problems and issues. Hope this one is much better. Can someone make multiple file copy, like check all the folders you want to copy, copy, and leave it just like android. Not copy one file/folder at a time...

it shows that the xbox 360 scene keeps getting attention
I hope it continues for many years
as we had on Xbox classic that even in the days of hj still receives new things
thanks for the info BL4K3Y
and congratulations to the team for the great work

That looks really awesome, not sure if I will replace FSD3 with Aurora as it's just an alpha release... I will decide when there will be a stable release with more features.

I can't seem to get it to load. Keeps giving me a black screen or freezes at the xbox logo if I set it to default in the launch.ini

It's still in the early Alpha stages with disabled features, Let them get it complete and I think you will like it better than FSD.
