I want to mod my xbox, by means of not using a mod chip, but by means of hot swaping the drive.

My xbox sys info says;

K:1.00.5101.01
D:1.00.4920.01

Can someone guide me to the best methof of doing this, as i was looking at doing:

but it says

QUOTE
Version-XBOX V1.1
DASH 4920 (you can get this dash by updating with a xbox live enabled game)
Kernel 4817


TIA for any input

do you have any linux experience at all? XLinux is THE only way to get it done. HDD_Driver suxors big time.
go here and read what I wrote:

Try hhd-driver u might be one of the lucky ones and not get that much errors.lol..

I don't wait like other people say to.... wink.gif I say if the xbox all ready unlocked it then lets go.
i usually wait 2-6 secs.(done it to many HDD and none of the have mest up).

Start ur PC the hit [pausebreask] key.Then do hotswap method.That should work.At least for me. ph34r.gif

If using HDD_Driver I did it before detection.

when using XLinux I had to do it right after detection. I strongly urge u to use XLinux. If you know linux it will be 100 million times easier and less stressful.
