I'm relatively certain that this order for setting software flags is determined by the actual bios, and as such, cannot be software altered.Therefore, booting the xbox with the game in the drive should be safe, no matter what softmod you use. RESETTING YOUR DASHBOARD IS NOT NECESSARY FOR XBOX LIVE, just start the rig with the retail game in the drive.Google it if you're interested (I'm not brave enough to open up my new 360 yet), and let me know if it works you have a USB 2.0 to xbox adapter, you can use a standard flash drive in place of a memory card.when you plug it into one of the ports and try to access it, it'll tell you the data is corrupted "or something" and ask if you want to format it.
You can do this simply by choosing the 'Live' options and select 'Account recovery' this updates your dashboard automatically and once finished will ask you for details of your account to continue, just quit as you've accomplished the task of updating the Dashboard.
The first thing you should do is FTP into your xbox using the IP address shown on your dashboard (user=xbox pass=xbox).
Now copy the EEPROM back-up to your PC's Hard-drive, the back-up will have been made of your original MS Dash, as well as the installed UXE package in E:\Backup\.
From the main menu you should see 'Waffle Zone Tool' press 'A' to enter this menu and you should now see the options as the above photo.
From this menu select 'Install UXE Package' and press 'A' the script will start copying the needed files.
If your not sure just eject your game disk and power off the Xbox after two minutes, this should be more than enough time to create the EEPROM backup.
