    I slightly changed my setup:
    Instead of adding my script to init.d in step 6) i now reconfigured the es_systems.cfg for the input config section (i named it advanced menu and gave it COMMAND=%ROM%) and added my script to /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/esconfig
    Also i renamed Start.sh to InputConfig.sh.

    So now i can put any script I want in this folder and execute it from within emulationstation.

    Result: Perfect!
    I can select the advanced-launcher shortcut to boot to emulationstation from within raspbmc and select my “boot to raspbmc” script from within emulationstation to get back.

    Yes, this is why i ended up with the dual boot.
    Both systems run perfectly fine now!

    Just to point this to the right direction:

    I use a dual boot setup with raspbmc and raspbian on one 16 gb sdcard

    to do so
    1) use NOOBS or NOOBS-lite from here

    and follow the install instructions
    choose both OSes, install and configure them.
    2) install retropie/emulationstation on raspbian

    Now you can make a choice between xbmc and emulationstation at startup

    from here on it’s optional:
    3) get the advanced launcher addon for xbmc (use google for the repository)
    4) find out which partitions your OSes are on and write two scripts that edit the noobs config file to boot to a specific partition
    5) tell advanced launcher to launch your script to boot to raspbian (add sudo reboot to this script if you want to do it instantly)
    6) for the moment i added my script to boot to xbmc next time to raspbian’s init.d, meaning it runs on startup. Can i configure emulationstation to run a script? this would be the best solution I think.
