Введение

This guide is inspired by the existing guide on iFxit. This is an improvement of the original with a better procedure.

ATTENTION: Technically the Xbox Live ToS prohibit this, but the Xbox Live enforcement team typically doesn't care about the hard drive modification. You may be banned from Xbox Live. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!

WARNING: THIS WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY if you have one.

If you have a low capacity hard drive and want to upgrade it or need the hard drive for a modern system, this guide will show you how to take the fat 360 hard drive apart to extract the hard drive. Taking this drive apart isn't a difficult task, but it requires access to Torx T6 and T10 screwdrivers.

Once the enclosure is open, any compatible drive can be installed. There may be compatibility limitations to deal with, so buy the correct drive or it may not work.

Guide notes

  • Try not to destroy the enclosure if you do not need it. These have residual value and can be sold to recoup some of your costs.
  • Any known compatible drive can be installed. Some drives do not work, so bear this in mind when purchasing a drive.

  4. If you are taking the enclosure apart for the bare drive, less caution is needed. After removing the 4 bottom screws, remove the bottom cover. The top of the drive will come off first. Note: Open the drive where the spring will not get lost. After removing the top of the drive, remove the drive from the enclosure. Unopened drives will have more adhesive strength.
