I would like to transfer a hard drive from a 20gB to a newer 640gB hard drive. However, I do not want to do a system update after I do a transfer. I know this happens if you simply FTP over files back and forth, I tried. I am nervous about once again finding the correct system update file 13599 and would rather just not do it at all.

Can anyone point me to a resource for doing this in a relatively laid out manner. I've done some reasonable google'ing and I can't really find something adequate. Hex editing and linux dd seem a bit intense, but might be able to follow if I could find a good tutorial. Don't people do this all the time.

Found this. Get any easier?

I greatly appreciate the help, however I don't believe that will avert the need to reapply the System Update in my case. But tried this, I effectively followed this tutorial here:

http://www.xboxhacke...11600#msg111600

Essentially FTPed over all my HDD1 and HDDX from XexMenu. Format new drive. Apply HD Compat and then FTP back.

However after that my Mass Effect 3 profile was borked and the avatar update had to be applied again as it was now gone. I just stuck my orig 20gB back in as I didn't want to lose my progress.

I suppose I could try again and just suck up trying to find the 13599 update again, but I would rather not. I'd rather just find a way to 1:1 update. Looks like I'll be following a hex editor tutorial with offsets. I don't believe FTP can do a 1:1 copy without the need to reapply updates.
