Not to leave you in the dark, but a few days ago I attempted my very first TSOP flash. The soldering went well but I didn't read the instructions on where to place what files thoroughly. Long story short, xbox-scene member "Heimdall" was a tremendous help getting me through that BS. Serious props to that guy for being so patient with me. Thanks Man!!
This morning I embarked on the journey of upgrading my hard drive. I chose a 60GB, 2.5" Toshiba... why? Because that's what I had on hand. Again, Heimdall suggested to me that I use a HeXeN disk to do the dirty work for me. After a subtle misunderstanding as to what the password was, I got everything under control.
After a couple of hours fussing with ini files, FTP, Apps etc.. I am well on my way to getting this thing setup just the way I want it. Right now I am ripping games to my hard drive and then I'll do some last minute tweaks to clean up.
Now that I have the hard drive squared away, next is working on the motherboard:
-install Iceberq's (the came in the mail yesterday)
-Flatten the motherboard (laying down / re-locating caps etc..)
After that I'll start building the case! That's where the REAL fun begins!!
Watch for the updates!
