It can be done I have one in my xbox, you need to find the 250GB HDDSS.bin file then use HDDHackr to flash the file. HDDHackr only works from DOS so you need a PC that can boot from USB.

When I did mine I kept getting an invalid command error when I tried to run the program so I renamed the file HDD.exe and it worked fine.

the program guides you through it you just need to hook up the HD then boot from USB and run the program and follow the on screen instructions

Snake helped me out, works great. I just finished installing my ultra sping (7200 RPM 16MB Cache Drive) Hard drives loads SOOOO fast. Having 250GB (228 usable) allows you to load in all of those games that take forever to load (Halo 3 etc) Also I think it gives you an advantage online because of the loading speed. Who knows.

I don't think so, it seems to just be modded FW that gets you banned.

flashed HDs use miicrosoft files
once flash theres no difference to one that microsoft would sell you at 5 times the cost.
so no you wont get banned
