Xbox modders extraordinaire, Xbox-Scene, have posted a method for installing an SATA hard drive into your 360. Before you run out to buy a 100GB hard drive to slap into your 360, you should know there are a few caveats. First, it must be a Western Digital BEVS brand hard drive. Second, you're still limited to 20GB of space (essentially, the hack copies the ID information from an official hard drive). Also, it's not a one click solution, so you'll need some technological know-how to make this work. In fact, just looking at the instructions makes us nervous. Still, if you've got the L337 5K1LLz and you don't want to waste 100 bucks on an official Microsoft drive, you may want to check it out.
It's worth noting that when Microsoft releases a larger hard drive, the hack will be able to utilize the same amount of space. Hit the "read" link for all the details.
