Since then, Insignia has revealed exactly how you’ll be able to log into the service (once you have received a beta invitation) through the Setup Wizard, which is now available for download. Basically, you will need the “V2” version of the Xbox Live dashboard, then run the setup wizard to register your console with the Insignia team.

If you’re already using a modded Xbox, you can simply download the wizard and then transfer it to your console. If it’s a standard retail Xbox, however, that apparently requires softmodding an Xbox by downloading a specific Insignia save file for one of a few games. This is explained in more detail on the Badge website:

To note: If you are going to softmod your Xbox, you should only do so at your own risk!

“Detailed text and video guides already exist for softmodding Xbox consoles; the only major difference is that you must use Insignia’s exploit saves instead of the Rocky5 softmod saves mentioned in these guides.”

If you decide to do so, you will finally be able to access the setup wizard and register your console for Insignia. This will work immediately, but obviously you won’t be able to create a gamertag and subscribe to the new “Xbox Live” until you receive an invite to the beta, which you can register now.

So the process isn’t as straightforward as we might have hoped for standard Xboxes, but we’re still excited to see how Insignia performs over the next few weeks. We will be watching this closely!
