Just so I'm 100% clear, I let the XBOX boot so it will unlock the drive and then I unplug the power connector and IDE cable from the drive without shutting off the XBOX (which presumably relocks the drive) and away I go?

That sounds too easy.

If you've opened your XBOX to install a modchip, why not just remove the drive and do it the way alexh is describing?
