btw. You dont need a SATA adapter to hook the 360 drive up to your PC. All you need is a SATA connection and a SATA power connector. Some newer PC's from dell already have the SATA power connector inside. Then you just plug in the SATA cable and power cable and it should work. Theres no hardware locking going on. The drive is funtional and appears to be operating completely. I dont have the desire to re-partition it to prove it works.
I dont think it will be any time soon that we see a "real" replacement hard drive hack for the 360. I think there is a whole lot of encryption and hypervisor bla bla sha boing boing goin on which is probably multi-level and dificult to circumvent.. though I dont want to underestimate
Maybe its just a fatx partition and it would just work in a xbox 1.. doubt it.. After seeing that m$ gives us absolutely NO option to store our stuff on it I dont see a reason to buy the sata to ide adapter to find out or spend any more time at all to find that I cant do anything with it anyways.
Im sure one day we will have what we want... mod or not. I was just hoping ms would come through on the media capabilities.
