Thanks bud, I think when you see what I have in store for the white slim you will change your mind about which you like best. Yea its a pity I ran into these probs after I posted the tutorial anyway nothing I can do now only make tutorial v2.0 Ill be doing more work to my slim so ill have a look and let ya know if I find some fix. If you find anything please do let me know.
The mods are sick. I like the white. I would have to say my favorite is the 360 leaf mod
I have yet to take apart my slim. I want to try and find an external 5v source so your rear usb mod would work a little better since you were reporting some issues. We ran into this same problem with the swap switch mod for BC PS3s. If I find something with my meter I will be sure to let you know because I really want a rear usb port for my camera. You do awesome work.
