    5010 v1 to v2

    Other than fork, hubs, and dropper would everything else transfer over? My drivetrain is Shimano 8000 1x.

    Drivetrain should change over fine. You could still use your fork and front wheel and just replace the rear wheel(or get a boost adapter for the rear wheel) dropper isn't the same diameter, but you could use a shim.

    How would my current fork 15x100 work with a boost front?

    If you are buying a frame then there is nothing boost about the frame in the front only in the rear. In fact the initial v2's were boost in the rear and 15x100 in the front.

    You should also change crankset to boost'ed one (Shimano XT M8000 Boost Single 11 Speed Crankset | Chain Reaction Cycles), current one will probably work just fine, but chainline will be slightly closer to the frame (like small cog on 2x cranksets). Chain will wear faster, and might be more prone for breaking due to suboptimal chain angles on high gears, but it should work.

    Before you run out and buy a new crank what are you running now? Are you running 2x or 1x? What is your current crank? You may be able to convert your 2x to a 1x by just buying a 1x chainring and the chainline will be fine.

    I just did the same frame swap. Only thing I had to do was get the boost adapter for the rear and a new dropper. If you plan on keeping the same crankset, just get the boost adapter that adds 3mm to each side. Then there is no need to re-dish the wheel and it will help with the chainline. There is no need to over complicate it.

    I run a 1x (Shimano XT M8000).

    AFAIK there is no way to convert regular M8000 crank to bust'ed one. Again, it should work just fine, but chainline won't be optimal.

    OneUp chart might be able to help: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/05...99317649577033

    I put the dropper from my Bronson V1 to my Nomad V3. I had to use shims. Two seasons and absolutely zero issues.

    Sorry I missed that. If your XT M8000 has the 53mm chain line it already is boost compatible. The chart references this. Just determine if you have the 53mm version, if not the 3mm will not destroy the drive train, it will wear a little quicker though in some gears.
