Yes Heimdall, I am STILL foundering around like a fish out of water. Hopefully you and/or others can set me straight here. I have already softmodded my xbox, and am now looking at changing upgrading the hard drive to a 500gb. I have spent, I dunno at least 10 hours just doing pure research. It seems as though everytime I think I am ready to proceed, I read something different that puts me back in a state of confusion.
I have not yet tried it yet, but I did create a disc using this tut:
Instead of Slayers Disk 2.6 final, I used Slayers Disk 2.7 and also used Xboxhdm v1.9
As I was reading it, Slayers is not really for Soft Modded Xboxes. Is this true?
I also saw this method:
that doesn't seem to use Slayers Disk at all.
Which is the best method?
What is the advantage of using the method WITH Slayers disc over the method without?
I have also seen references to something called Cash as well as Ndure.
Unfortunately with so many different progs and methods, I am just....stuck.
Another question is this:
I have seen where it is stated that you need to use a new drive to upgrade. Is it possible to use a "used" drive? If you reformatted the drive with no partitions, would it work? If so, what type of Format should you use?
I know this should not be THAT hard. Maybe because I am an analyst, I am approaching it from the wrong direction and over analyzing all the data out there on doing this...I dunno.
