HDD HACKR-Use any laptop 2.5"hdd for a xbox 360 hardrive

Hey guys i recently did this my self Here are some links that helped me do this . (You can only do up to 320 gb other wise you will have to partition the hdd while hacking it .This is due to xbox only has a 320ss.bin file out and nothing bigger.)If you want something bigger than you will have to RGH your console.

EDIT : I ADDED the TX links Below instead of the other ones i had on there.

Does this involve taking the xbox apart?

Lol nah this has been around for quite a while, it involves buying the appropriate 2.5" drive and a HDD casing

Yes you are correct. You do not have to take your xbox apart at all.
All you need is:

A Flash Drive
Correct Western Digital 2.5 " Laptop internal Harddrive
All the Specified Files Above
Also you will need a computer that has sata ports if you dont and you still run on IDE then you can buy this VIA Card 6421. ITs only about 12 bucks.(you can also use a usb to Sata Adapter as well.
