Hi,
I was wondering if there's anything I should know before switching a (Phat) HHD from a banned console to an unbanned one (both with iXtreme)??
Are there any risks of getting banned??

P.D.: I did search about this and only found old topics (explainig how to fix the "corrupted data" issue), that's why I would like to know if there's anything new on this matter...

It won't change a thing as far as increasing your risk for a ban. It's kind of silly to think MS would do that when they want you to replace a banned console anyway.

Put the Hdd in the unbanned console and format it with that console's serial # before connecting to live.
When you say that I should format the HDD with the unbanned console's serial #, that's done by simply formatting it on the unbanned console... Right??

Yes. It will ask for the serial # when you format it. When you download stuff from live, it locks the containers and your profile with that console's id.
