To do this instructable you will need a few things:

a usb memory device
xbox 360
an image

Step 2: The Image

Picture of The Image

You should have an image that will fit over the whole dashboard.

A 7X7 inch picture will fill the whole main dashboard but will not fill whole menus like your videos list.

To make the picture cover every thing I would use a 10X7 inch picture.

Step 3: Format
