How would you make it switching to another mode, if the HD is still initialized in UDMA?
It wonīt happen to work that way, afaik (at least not with the current patching, even thought it would/might be possible with another patching... So,... I donīt feel, it is going to happen.).
Another thing,... Why [are you] still bothering with "old Software" (HDA3.0/HDL 0.7c, or Swap-Magic...) and wanna use non-working methods, to start out anyway? ^^
For what, do you even want to have Swap-Magic?
Do you know about FMCB (+ESR for Backups, instead of the swapmagic/cogswap/swapping-stuff)?
I believe it offers all you want + more and donīt need at least one 128MB-Part on HD, like the HDL-Image would do.
Download the Nooby-Pakage and install it with uLE, if you want to.
No need to worry about your original discs anymore (especially the HDA 3.0 in your case), since all needed programms can be started from MC, or USB directly (or with uLE, even from other devices).
Another thing,... This is a working solution for ya, to get the MDMA-Modes (and the Mode-Selection in itself).
