    I can't seem to find solid information on how to successfully install a 2TB internal drive. Best I can find is that the April 2015 360 update now allows 2TB external drives to be formatted and used. Also, that any drive formatted for use that Horizon is needed to install a dashboard such as FSD or Aurora. Xbins has no .bin for 2TB/1TB drives.

    I'm personally using a RGH Jasper, and have yet to buy a drive due to unknown compatibility. I know there is one Ebay seller out there that sells 360s with 2TB internal drives, but his history is shady and it's always best to do these things on one's own.

    For those that have a 2TB internal drive, what have you done to get it working?

    Any 2.5" laptop hdd will work. Take apart the case of one and remove the old, put in the new, put it back together. Put it in the xbox, turn it on, go to storage settings, format, 2 tb internal hdd installed. Install the OG Xbox files and avatar updates after that if you plan on playing og xbox and/or kinect stuff. Only thing for other stuff is xexmenu. You can structure a USB without horizon for that.

    Exactly what brickmii said, follow this tut to help you with it.

    You can substitute FSD with Aurora if needed.
    Latest dashlaunch can be found on homebrew-connection.org, launch it from a USB in XeXMenu.

    Awesome! Thank you. That explains why there's no 'tutorial' for this.

    Does this work on any firmware version, or must it be a later version such as the April 2015 update?

    Works on any dash as long as your 360 is RGH'd or JTAG'd
