Hacked 360 HDD's Wont get you banned, proof!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Me: Hello, I just have a quick question. If I was to use a 3rd party HDD in my xbox 360/360S or was to use software and format one to work would I get banned from XBL? M$s prices are a little steep for a HDD.
Kristina: I can certainly understand wanting to shop for the best deal, I love getting bargains myself. However, for best performance, I would suggest going with a 1st party hard drive. Ultimately, it is up to you. The hard drive will not cause you to be banned from Xbox Live, but there could be unforeseen issues.
Me: Thank you for you help

from legndkilla8 at digiex

so i hope this dispells any myths that some people perpetuate that using a hacked HDD to work in a 360 will somehow get you banned

and to those who already have a hacked drive, hope this will ease some minds

and kristina is lying, using a hacked scorpio black will get you better performance then the scorpio blue and seagate momentus 5400 that MS uses.

if Ms would just let the 360 use normal HDd's without restrictive security sectors, one could use any HDD in whatever they wanted without issues at all, jsut like the PS3

lol the SSD will cost more than the 360 tongue.gif

but that would be crazy, imagine instant loading times for GTA and any other game.

i wonder if you can use an SSD for the PS3

I have 3...one is sitting around doing nothin atm, any guides for ssd's?

I don't think SSDs will work with 360, at least not yet. Basically it works by telling the console 'no no no this really is the official hard drive' so I'm thinking if you mix in something that is really nothing like the standard HDD you're going to have some issues.

actually, if MS made the 360 accept any HDD like the PS3 does, you can use an SSD.

heres a difference chart between HDD and SSd in loading times
