Yes it took me a wile, i was missing some components that i couldn't source locally ended up purchasing them online but was slow.
Of course i read the whole file on the wiki and very impress how much documentation you worked out.
For some reason when i got to this part couldn't understand that the .EMT files where the os itself i was expecting to find a .dsk file or something like that.
Now managed to build a bootable floppy including all the tools and the ide device worked perfectly the first time !.
Thanks for all!

No, but there is one for the 6128 called uIDE-16 (because the 6128 uses 16 bit I/O addresses when it performs IN or OUT).

This would certainly work on the 464 (in 16 or 8 bit addressing mode).

If the 464 is using 8 bit mode you can use a normal uIDE-8 but you will probably need to connect it with a Z80 shim.

However... there are NO drivers for it other than for SYMBOS.

If someone can sell me a fully assembled board (sorry i have no soldering-skills) for the MotherX4, i will try to integrate a driver in my CubeMDOS.
(I'm using a CPC6128)
